For me, it's time to move on - sigh! This was a tough one to take. I was a teenager when we didn't hire Lindy Infante and in my early 30's when we turned down RR. I truly hope that Jewitt can right the ship, and with the sheer volume of recruits that are coming in, he will definitely have his chance. So here's to you Jewitt, I'm all in. Let's go win some games and get back to where we belong!!!!!
In 1979 Hindman Wall insulted Lindy Infante by not offering him the Tulane football head coaching job; Infante returned the insult in 1982 by declining Wall's offer of the Tulane head coaching job. In 1998 Scott Cowen insulted RichRod by not offering him the Tulane football head coaching job (although Sandy Barbour may have indeed offered RR the job? (see my post from 2013 viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4326); RR returned the insult in 2011 by declining Cowen's offer of the Tulane head coaching job.
The Tulanes of the world get only one chance to hire a coach on the way up like an Infante, RR or Andy Cannizaro. And make no mistake, top flight coaches have egos as big as their ambitions, you only get to insult them once. And Wavetime is right, we will never match the salary of a top flight SEC baseball coach. So as to Cannizaro, "that bird has flown."
