youre no tulane fan if you consider baseball at tulane a minor sport. either that, or youre troy dannen. or both.

He's not Troy Dannen but he's a shill carrying Dannen's water pail ever since he got picked to be on the fan committee.

And how has the fan committee done?
Plenty talk no action
Just smoke and mirrors


As I just said I have conveyed our likes and dislikes in a very direct way at every meeting we have had. If things don't change as far as gameday operations and the such then that's on Tulane but not on the diehard fans who have given their time for free.

Football and Basketball are far more important in the grand scheme of things than Baseball, which is why not hiring Cannizaro was so stupid. Self Motivated guy with tons of pride in the program who needed little supervision. Dannen would've been free to focus on the other two and let Cannizaro do his thing.

It is a minor sport in college. It's important to us but that doesn't change the fact that the football program is the one and only program that can save us. We need it to start making a huge turnaround sooner than later or we'' soon be out of the AAC and Tulane athletics will be dead. That's the reality.


Or we will be out of the AAC? Lol. That's not the reality. Witchita st just got into this conference and they don't even have a football team.

They got in to balance out basketball. They are a partial member like Navy is. I am far from the first to see that ending if football and basketball remain abysmal. If we gave up football the conference certainly wouldn't want us.

I sure do know more than their own fans. They call for Mainieri to be fired every time he loses a midweek game. Our fans can be stupid too. You wont find any posts of mine calling the SEC overrated. Hasn't happened.
How is this hating on Tulane? I'm talking about LSU. This post from you is a complete deflection, you were wrong and would just like to change the subject.


LOL. You don't. You proved my point above when you talked about them falling out of the top 10.Hell at one point they dropped out of the top 20 in one or two of them. That State series saved their season. It got them the Division championship and a share of the Conference title. Reverse it and they lose confidence instead of gaining it. As for this thread it's all about the hate and angst of the decision made. Hold onto it all you want.


:lol: :lol: :lol:
The only poll I look at is D1Baseball, they had a poll every week. 14 polls, LSU was in the top 10 in 11 of them. The 3 times they weren't in the top 10 they were ranked 12,13 and 13. My original statement was "They've been top 10 in the country almost all year." and that is 100% accurate.
You cant reverse it though, they won.
I came back to this thread just to see if you'd admit to being wrong for once, I knew you wouldn't. These posts have nothing to do with hate or angst about anything.

We don't know what happened behind closed doors. Certainly, had we hired Andy, we would have gone to the CWS, football would be 2-0, and both women's and men's basketball would be gearing up for seasons that would see them reach the second weekends of the NCAA basketball tournaments.

And if this non hire, well over a year ago, is the first thing that makes it "almost painful to be a Tulane fan", than you're really not a Tulane fan.
