Re: Look out for Dr. Cowen....

Oh and I fail to see one consistent positive from the RD athletic leadership group. If the football team AND the basketball program do not show clear improvement (and that means W's) then RD MUST be fired. Of course, Cowen may rationalize keeping the guy on for the building of the OCS. Now, I am sta...

Re: Look out for Dr. Cowen....

Fred: I agree all those comparisons are not perfect. In the end the OCS carries significant risk along with potentially significant positive benefits. I just think that NOLA has the fanbase to support a Saturday football event. If the team stinks, of course things will diminish quickly. As far as bu...

Re: Look out for Dr. Cowen....

College football is all about the experience?? No...in the south -- can't speak for other areas but we all do know how southerners feels about things -- it's all about winning. And if you aren't winning, the experience is not going to be a pleasant one. That's just so typical Tulane. As in seemingl...

Re: Look out for Dr. Cowen....

Will an OCS make more gameday money than the Superdome for Tulane at current attendance levels? YES. Will OCS gameday money come close to equaling TV money from improved conference affiliation that can only be attained by consistent high level winning and increasing the fanbase to 35-40K consistent...

Re: Mackey Arrested

I guess there is still a shot he could play. Very curious, I hope the legal process plays out fairly and QUICKLY!

Re: Look out for Dr. Cowen....

BTW, I agree that unless TU admins place a larger focus on football, things will not improve simply because an OCS has been built.

Also, no matter how unfair US News rankings are, they matter more then any other list in the nation. TU knows and so don;t all of us.

Re: Look out for Dr. Cowen....

Wow, I guess the fanbase is angry. I barely defended the guy nor tried to big time anyone and get attacked. Jeez, I am on the same side as many of you as I love TU but was trying to make some general points. At the very least I hope you people were not so aggressive, I feel like a visiting fan at Ti...

Re: Look out for Dr. Cowen....

There has been no improvement in our academic standing under Cowen. Many of our academic metrics have gone up, average SAT/ACT, freshmen retention, % top ten in class, acceptance rate, endowment etc. US News is a strange bird, the real issues was our perception across the country was still poor bas...

Re: Look out for Dr. Cowen....

if he cares so much, why is he building a stadium that will cement us in small time athletics? This goes back to one of my earlier points, the situation is most likely more complex then many of us realize. I think Cowen knows the cost/benefit. You may not agree but when you consider the Nimby's, th...

Re: Look out for Dr. Cowen....

3 years ago, Cowen had an open and direct conversation with a number of MBA students, many of whom had undergraduate TU degrees and alot of passion for the University. In that discussion, Cowen said that he does not believe that a school president should remain for more then 10 years and then joking...

Re: Mackey Arrested

I don't even think saying it was a "prank" would hold up at this point because arrests were made based on the theft of property, you can't just say oops it was all a joke. The only defense, and it would be weak based on the public information available, would simply be that Trent had a nor...

Re: Mackey Arrested

If this is true and Mackey is part of this crime, then he is an absolute scumbag. I mean setting up a robbery of a poor 20 year old female is beyond ruthless. This will effect the rest of her life over a few $100. Therefore, if it is true I am actually glad this coward was exposed (though I feel ter...
