I'm am putting this out there realizing I am opening myself for criticism but I feel it is important if Tulane is to market itself in a positive light:

#1 -- Tulane is having quite a few promotions this year which is a great move to attempt to get casual fans into the park. This is a great initial effort to get casual fans into the park and I applaud the PTB that have gotten this started.

#2 -- have really enjoyed the give-always, especially the Sunday trading cards. Yesit's geeky for anyone older than 16, but I find myself looking forward to Sunday games to see what new faces will appear.

#3 -- a bit disappointed with tonight's promotions:
A. Tonight was St Patty's dollar beer. I received an email with no mention it was for students only. I found that out after waiting ten minutes in line. A bit later I sat by a student who said he would get one for me. He went down to buy some in the 3rd inning, returning shortly saying they were now out of the dollar beer. WTF? A nice little promotion that Tulane crayfishes on and then stocks
precious little beer?

B--- tonight was "Replica Jersey" night.
I was one of the first 250 in the gate and I received a t-shirt.
I don't have a problem with a tshirt. Tshirts are great. But if you give away tshirts, have a free Tshirt night. Don't promote a jersey night and Then give cheap a$$ t shirts

C-- next Tuesday is Free Jersy Night #2.
For the LSU game. What do you think LSU fans who get these shirts are going to do with them? This has disaster written all over it.

Would seem to me that a promotional giveaway is unnecessary for the LSU game. Take the funds budgeted for that game and use it for another game's promo (fire Dickson tee shirts?). That would be a promo that would have fans lined up all the way to Claiborne. Unfortunately that message would probably remain relevant for the next several years so we could get a lot of wear out of the shirts.

Agree about the potential for disaster at the LSU game. They should either hold out for another game or amend it to the first 250 fans that are wearing Tulane gear that get them.

Please tell ANY LSU fans who wind up with one of those free TU T-shirts from the game to please NOT burn or destroy them. I live at 7816 Board Drive, Baton Rouge, LA 70817, and I will gladly take them off their hands.

Email me at IM42lane@yahoo.com if they wish to drop them off at my front door. Also, if it really makes any difference, tell them that my wife is a two-time LSU grad, and my daughter is a recent LSU Law School graduate.

While you're at it, Pete, what's your SS#, and your favorite PIN?

I'm kidding, of course, but you should be careful about what personal info you put out on the interwebs. There are some bad people out there.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

Yeah, I know, but if someone gets a free Tulane shirt and makes an oil rag out of it, that will just irk me to the max!

This whole promotion shows exactly how clueless our Athletic Department is. The entire reason for promotions is to get people to attend the game. There's no need to do a promotion when you're playing LSU, it should be pretty much full anyway. And by giving out promos at a game against a rival, you just ask for problems.

Dumb and Dumber.

Coca-Cola is the sponsor of Tuesday's game. The first 250 fans will receive a replica T-Shirt jersey of the 2005 College World Series jersey worn by the Green Wave..

Crazy. Only Tulane would waste a promotion on a guaranteed sellout.

It's worse than that....another point of the promotion is to also have people wearing your gear and feeling a stronger connection to Tulane. Yet in this instance half the fans in attendance are essentially anti Tulane and will just be throwing the shirt in the dumpster after the game. It's just ludicrous.

Think about it. If I'm a Tulane fan going to the Box at LSU and they are handing out LSU shirts I'm going to decline it. I've been to Pelican games and declined stuff because it wasn't any good to me. Plus you have to go to the Tulane promotion tent inside and ask for your shirt. At least that's how the promotions have been done so far this season.

Tulane has now changed the promotion. You have to bring in another schools shirt and trade it for a Tulane one. :mrgreen:

You know a ton of those dirty LSU fans will happily take the shirt and toss it out of spite.

I am sure people will see this facebook post, LOL. Now you are going to piss off the people who don't see the adjustment, show up early expecting a free T-shirt and get rejected. I mean they are a joke. They make this adjustment 6 hours before the game starts.

We are so screwed with this group running the show. Can't even properly execute a simple promotion.

It's on their Twitter feed as well. I'm mad now because I don't have any other schools shirts. Lol
Looks like they are going to do both now.

Coca-Cola is the sponsor of Tuesday's game. The first 250 fans will receive a replica T-Shirt jersey of the 2005 College World Series jersey worn by the Green Wave. Fans will also have an opportunity to take part in the T-Shirt exchange where they can bring in a T-Shirt from another college and exchange it for a Tulane T-Shirt, while supplies last.

I've been following it and it was always promoted both ways to get the shirts.

It's permanent amateur hour. Meanwhile, the median D1A athletic department does $40M/year in revenue and ours is a clown show which makes the average local Meetup group look well run in comparison.

Yep. But on my FB feed they have been sending out separate promo's under the "edit" mode.
If you look it appears they edited the first promo. Why not send out a new one?

Still absolutely insane to do it for the LSU game, seems obvious.
