Re: Fall Camp Thread

World of difference between President Fitts and Cowen. :D

Thank goodness we have President Fitts.

If Dickson is still here after January 1, 2015 there is a problem.

Re: Future OOC Games

Not wanting to play local local directionals has nothing to do with being afraid. The point is to broaden our fan base and develop our brand name and credibility so that we can compete with upper echelon schools on the field, on the court and in recruiting. The local locals add nothing. The Haves wi...

Re: Future OOC Games

Totally agree, Wave 755. There is everything to be gained by playing name brands. There is nothing to be gained by playing the likes of Monroe, SE, Tech, Southern or Lafayette. We need to broaden our own name brand and playing the Louisiana directionals accomplishes nothing, even when we win. Also, ...

Re: Future OOC Games

If we are truly seeking upward mobility to the ACC or The Big 12 then we must show that we are able to compete with them. To show that we are able to compete with them we must play them. To play them we must not schedule the likes of Monroe, Lafayette, SE, Southern, La Tech, Rice, UAB. To show The B...

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 disconn...

Re: Yulman Stadium (Benson Field)

More forgotten items:

There is no flagpole.

Also there does not seem that Tulane can display our Rose Bowl and other bowl banners, our three SEC Champion banners, or our CUSA Championship banner.

And also there seems to be no accommodation for our fellow AAC member banners.

Re: Notable Omission by President Fitts

I feel like he will be nudged politely into retiring once the stadium is complete. He'll have a mini Cowen-esque send off. Same with Conroy (only fire not retire). And we'll wish them well and all move on. As above stated, ..."Dickson will be gone no later than January 1, 2015." And with Dickson go...

Re: Yulman Stadium (Benson Field)

Just found out something typical of Tulane. I was inquiring about new merchandise and asked where the shop would be inside Yulman and was told "they forgot about that". So they will park a trailer somewhere out in front. Meanwhile when it rains or gets cold you won't have a shop inside to buy a jac...

Re: Notable Omission by President Fitts

The Board of Administrators just hired President Fitts. There is no apparent reason to conclude that terminating the AD would be an abuse of power or a reckless act of disrespect. As others pointed out above, Cowen was Dickson's protector. Cowen is gone. President Fitts will terminate Dickson, will ...

Re: August 11, 2014 - AAC Commish Aresco meets Fitts & Dicks

Nobody wants to watch the Rick Dickson show anymore. No matter what positive things Tulane does, his presence will always put a damper on the situation and lead most of us to at least think in the back of our heads that it's still business as usual. Quite frankly his continued presence means it sti...

Sounds as if Dickson embarrassed himself again. Happy to hear it.

Brilliant move to have both the AD to be fired and James Carville with Aresco; Carville will be the NEW AD very, very soon.

Dickson says a lot of things; but he does nothing.

He has zero credibility; and he has earned that rep all by himself.
