Re: 'Payday' Games

Michigan invited us to open the season in 2008 for a big payday but we turned them down. Funny because they had a bad year at 3-9 in 2008. I guess they thought we'd be a rent a win.[/quote] Was that RichRod ? We must never make such a stupid decision again; we are aspiring up. With injuries at Duke ...

Re: Music

Look Tulane has about 6400 undergrads it would take a little work but 200-250 players would be well great AMP 'em up; we can sound as loud as we want to sound. South Rampart Street Parade great.

ESPN calls for Tulane to upset Rutgers as we take advantage of being the game after Rutgers' first BIG game and the game before their next three BIG games.

Re: 'Payday' Games

Not only do I not see the problem with the occasional payday game against big time opponents (e.g. not Miss St.) the reality is that the big programs require 2-1's or worse, it's just the current reality. So if you want to play them you have to agree to their demands. Out of the last 10 Tulsa vs OK...

One every three or four years, max. This will allow all our players to participate at least once.

Re: Yulman Stadium (Benson Field)

All existing Wilson Center facilities should be moved to the new "village" property. This plan should be announced in the next six months. Tulane needs to seize on the momentu...

Two or three a decade will not hurt, will spread our name, will not hurt and will probably help recruiting, and besides, upset happens only if you're game.

Re: Notable Omission by President Fitts

It is great that the Glazers are on board, and that, thankfully President Fitts expects nothing short of excellence. The Glazers will not continue to pour money into an enterprise that is not trying to make itself stronger and more of a force. The Bensons, likewise will at some point in time discon...

Until Dickson is gone it will be difficult to schedule up. Dickson is unconcerned with the realities of Division 1 athletics. Perception plays a large and growing role.

The appearance of Benson Field will be greatly enhanced if hedges are planted along the seating facades, ala The University of Georgia. The unfinished concrete is unattractive to say the least.
