Re: Troy Dannen is a class act! Quick story

Best to your entire family. Troy Dannen's acumen is exceeded only by his humanity. How fortunate Amy and their kids are. We are sooner than later going to be fighting off other universities for Troy and hopefully Tulane is putting aside a pot of gold to retain him when the inevitable offers come. Aw...

Re: Will Wallace chooses Tulane!

Man, its sucks not to be a P5 school. If you take a look at his twitter feed, he's got a screenshot of his ranking as the #18 DE in the nation. His 247 ranking was 3-stars 0.8700 If you look at him under Tulane's list of commits, it has him now at 3-stars 0.8159. A drop of .055 is a lot. So what gi...

Dannen has said the foundation to add an upper deck on the West side is already in place.
