So for some reason we still have bob toledo as a coach even though he's terrible and most players dont like him. Y did we keep him, it would be nice if tulane would hire coach rod back. (Offensive Cord. Of the best season in Tulane History 12-0)

He was definitely the evil genius behind the 97/98 seasons. I can't imagine he won't be a hc somewhere next season. I wonder who Michigan will go after. Maybe Harbaugh but rumor is he has his eyes on the nfl.

Toledo is building a foundation for better things at Tulane. Doesnt it feel a bit like Teevens-Bowden? I mean Teevens had some decent talent and took five years to put it all together and Bowden took it and turned it into winners. I'm not sure Rich Rod could do the same right away but his approach on Offense fits right in with C-USA and he's a won at West Virginia. It would create some real buzz at Tulane if we hired him. I'd do it.

In Rich Rod's case, I'm afraid it's wishful thinking. First, we're stuck with Buffet Bob for at least another year. Secondly, if he does depart Michigan, Rich Rod will likely be plucked up by somebody, before we give up the Toledo experiment. Lastly, I still doubt Rich Rod would want to come to a school led by somebody like Cowen. Our best, and highly unlikely, scenario to get Rich Rod back would be; (1) Rich Rod hangs on at Michigan one more year (possible), (2) Toledo's 2011 team melts down again and we finally pull the trigger (likely), and (3) Cowen retires (highly unlikely). So it seems to be a reach, but I guess anything is possible.

The concept is so unrealistic as to make it almost amusing that anyone could fathom Rodriquez wanting to come to Tulane or the halfwits in the admin wanting him. How many times do some fans need to be slapped in the face to get it? By keeping the Bernie aka Buffet Bob, the admin was sending a not to subtle message that Division 1 football is finished at Tulane. Apparently, there a quite a few that just do not get it.

Rich Rod will NEVER even think of coming back to Tulane as long as Cowen is the BMFIC around here.

Run Cowen and Dickson off, and then start dreaming about better things that could be.

Realistically speaking, I do not see RR ever coming back here again, unless Tulane ponies up a deal that he really could not refuse. But, Tulane will never spend the kind of bucks necessary to get a quality coach over hre as long as Cowen is here.

Again (and with EMPHASIS), Run Cowen and Dickson off, and then dreaming better things.

Cosign to bringing him or anyone better back. Without an 8+ (which as a Boise fan seems like nothing to me) season this year I'm left banging my head on a wall.

What's sad is you know that if we win 6 games Dickson will consider the season a success. The bar is so low here that .500 in football in a terrible conference will be considered a success by the administration. If you guaranteed Dickson that Toledo wins 7 games next year he'd sign him to a lenghty extension. Instead of planning and aiming for excellence we hope for and reward mediocrity.

Rich Rod would only consider coming to Tulane if we agree to fire and de-pants Cowen, in public. An act that many Tulane alums and fans would be only too happy to support.
