I'd say the article clearly says our program is an embarrassment. It pictures a flag football team and says that's what people might think of when thinking of Tulane football. The point here is that a lot of people refuse to get how far this program has fallen and so they don't understand that major changes are needed ASAP. Lip service that SC/RD appear to get it don't cut it. We were told 3 years ago about the new majors yet we don't have a single one. Our scheduling cries out that we are operating on the cheap more than ever. Our lack of advertising for football and basketball screams that less not more money is available for our programs. That's why we keep hammering the point home b/c some refuse to get it.


Tulane didn't have a stadium issue it had a program and facilities issues. To the new President- we want a new AD , a football facility and an IPF. We want top 25 programs in football and basketball the only two sports that count.

Exactly.

The burden has to be on the ruling regime to show that whatever talk that there is about this and about that that might have some appeal to it is a lot more than mere empty talk.

The proof is in the results and another key is in funds spent on operations.

Unless and until those things change materially it's fair to assume that you're only dealing with the same-old same-old.

+1

A $50M stadium isn't a major change.

Amen.

And the game Griff was the MVP of was like a minor league all star game of college football. Definitely nowhere near the caliber of the Senior Bowl. Someone posted above the Griff could be a late round draft pick of the Saints. That would be great for him to stay in N.O., but he'd have one hell of a tough time becoming the backup, as Chase Daniel is a very talented young man playing behind one of the top 3 QBs in the NFL.

I wish Griffin the best, and hope he makes it to the NFL. But I also wouldn't mind seeing him as a QB coach (or more likely graduate assistant) schooling the QB's on how to read defenses and set up the pass blocking. I think everyone associated with the offense said his ability to do this made all the difference between getting blown out and being competitive.

If a 50 million dollar stadium isn't a major change why is it suddenly the death toll for Tulane cfb? 8)

You mean "death knell" not "death toll," don't you?

Frustrating that you'd ask given that numerous posters have answered that question ad nauseum. The reason you don't know is that you don't want to hear it.

Bad news. Ryan was not invited to the NFL combine.
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1526 ... fl-combine
Here are some players who did not quite make the list, but could also be considered snubs in the eyes of many.
.... Ryan Griffin, Quarterback, Tulane: Even though Tulane struggled, Griffin has the size at 6'4" and 216 pounds to make an NFL roster in 2013.

.....Russell Shepard, Wide Receiver, LSU: Shepard did not put up the numbers he would have liked, but that was due in part to the problems at the quarterback position for the Tigers.

Does anyone know if Griffin will be working out at LSU's Pro Day. I read somewhere that Les Miles lets NFL prospects from any Louisiana school participate.

Postby dpm wave » Sat Mar 23, 2013 2:06 am

Could go anywhere from the 5th-7th rounds or enter an UDFA bidding war.

Wow! Could he be a late round pick? Gotta give some credit to CJ and Neu. No way Griffin was on anyone's radar under Toledo.

He ran the Saints offense last season. Big advantage.

The Saints are going to do something about the QB spot.

If they were to draft Griffin one would have to hope that they will be able to take care of the LT spot and that Brees can continue to stay healthy (maybe a little harder to do as an older QB?) for at least a few more seasons.

OTOH being drafted in late rounds by Saints seems to have been a consistent good thing somehow from the standpoint of those players.

What does drafting Griffin have to do with the Saints LT spot??
