Re: Can anybody beam Scotty (Cowen) out of here . . .

Joe: What would you suggest? Do you think the the students and alumni are in a position to force out a president who apparently answers to no one? Do you think that the students in the majority care like we care? Personally, I think its all a done deal and the fate of Tulane football has long since...

Re: Can anybody beam Scotty (Cowen) out of here . . .

Guys: its a done deal. That became clear when they retained this incompetent coach and his staff. The admin thumbed their noses at those who have a real and genuine love of Tulane. Its time to give all the same talk a rest. So what are you going to do about it? Obviously you still care, or you woul...

Re: Just to clarify things about me . . .

The same talk over and over ad nauseum about what we need, in effect, a commitment from the admin. It ain't coming! Should it not be clear to all that Dickson is just a yes man and Cowen wants an end to football? There will be no success or improvement until Cowen is gone and by that time, football...

Re: Just to clarify things about me . . .

The main problem with our athletic program is that our administration has never been pro-active (except for the review :oops: ) They wait until the program is on life support, then try to play catch-up to the middle of the pack in a bad CUSA league. I really believe RD is just following orders from...

Re: Just to clarify things about me . . .

I just do not want to come on here and run everyone in the TU Athletic Dept. down. There are some good people who are there, I realize that. But, the lack of leadership that Tr!cky D!ckson has shown during his time here is the main downfall. His hirings have just not come through. Cowen is just in ...

Jonathan you obviously know more about all the new media than I do. But how about putting a you Tube video together explaining your effort, what it's about, etc?

If you want to help with that effort, like the New Wave Facebook page or follow the Twitter account. Getting those numbers up is how we can collectively put pressure on Dr. Cowen.

Re: Have the waters calmed any?

I'm still p!ssed and will not become unp!ssed. You're right in that Toledo is the coach and there's nothing we can do about it now. At this time next year we'll be looking for a new head coach after another crappy season. But the idiot running Tulane football into the ground needs to feel pressure ...

Re: Dear stupid

It's a good question but beyond a doubt where the situation now is hugely different is that this was before all of the scandals of 1980's. There are light years and vast oceans of difference between what the coaches were allowed to do at recruiting time then and what they must adhere to now. and th...

I will. And do not underestimate the power of Facebook. It's worth $50B in the private markets for a reason.

If we can start getting alums on board, it will snowball. It will be easier than anyone realizes. But it's time to do something, because this is simply ridiculous.

Re: New Site/Blog: New Wave

Nicely done, IM4.

Please, "like" the Facebook page for "New Wave" or follow the account on Twitter. Cowen has proven that he'll ignore individuals, so it's time to band together somewhere. Facebook/Twitter is an easy way to do that.

Re: "Excellence Fund"

One thing we don't need is Tulane keeping anymore secrets about what they are doing with solicited donations, especially if they are for football.

Re: Fate of Coach Toledo

After this season's horrendous special teams' play, someone on that staff deserved to be let go. Compound the fact that outside of Ole Miss, Tulsa and UCF, Tulane had just as much talent as everyone else on it's schedule. The offensive scheme, lack of motivation by both the team on game day and by ...
