Re: Tulane and LSU host FB camp in June

Problem is they now have no reason to expand. If the NCAA wanted more expansion they would have denied them the right to a championship game w/out having 12 teams. Agreed. It will be interesting to see what their next contract looks like if they stay together. What's also interesting is that it app...

Throwback Unis

Would love to see throwback unis for the 1929 Rose Bowl team that Tulane refused to allow to travel to Pasadena and the 1931 Rose Bowl team that traveled to Pasadena for the January 1, 1932 game.

Re: Yulman Stadium (Benson Field)

If tailgating is meaningless, tell that to the 10,000 folks that show up (13,000 vs. 3000) for games that didn't show for the games in the Dome. Tell that to the alumni that used to come into town and ignore the fact that Tulane was playing a football game, and maybe not even visit campus on a fall...

Re: A bad first for many

Wave 755 is correct. Fritz had only a handful of his recruits last season. Dunleavy inherited a total clusterf -ck. Both Fritz and Dunleavy will be coaching this coming season to all intents and purposes their first Tulane classes. Mens baseball is truly minor in every respect to all FBS schools not...

Re: Football season ticket renewal deadline

Sorry but they're not good points.

The real point here is the lack of respect both for onese...

Re: Tulane and LSU host FB camp in June

Does anyone know at what level the decisions re camping with Michigan and/or LSU were made ? If only our coaches were involved we again made poor decisions.

Re: 2017 Spring football practice

The QB's weren't live but the action between the lines were. We continue to have serious issues on the line especially with regards to pass blocking.

Re: Tulane announces 4 game football series with USM

Terrible mistake. I thought we are trying to elevate above the stench of the CUSA's.

And when we lose three or four of these the losses will be devastating.

Re: Q&A with Coach Dunleavy on End of Season Reflections

Hope I'm wrong, but Dunleavy sounds too content with traveling, "teaching", and sticking around as long as possible as opposed to winning. Scary similarities to a horrible coach named Scelfo.

Re: Tulane 1st base coach needs to be fired or at least suspended.

Grow up, ladies. Wrong or right, language in sports contests has always been colorful. The only problem here is that there is not enough fan support to generate enough white noise to mask routine athletics conversations.

Take deep breaths and exhale; there is no way the Cow/Dick messes could be turned around in one season. Like it or not all of these coaches DESERVE at least four seasons of their own recruiting and coaching. Period.
