Bottom line is it's too early to anoint or crucify anyone.

In case anybody was wondering he got swept at home by an LSwho team that all here have agreed isn't up to par w/past LSU teams.

I never agreed on that and just because some posters here agree on something doesn't necessarily make it so. LSU won the SEC and probably locked up a national seed. LSU was a much more talented team than Miss State

Talent or not as much as I hate to say this LSU is the hottest team in the country right now. They always seem to peak at the right time. Their weekend pitching has been outstanding and their hitting and defense has also been outstanding. They will be a national seed and will likely end up in Omaha once again. Hopefully Cannizaro gets there as well and gets revenge and knocks them out. Congrats winwave for your team getting the sweep.

Tulane only won 2 out of three this weekend. Sorry your team got swept.

Congrats to a great Hall of Fame Greenie!
Year one HC getting to a Super Regional.
Miss St pulls off the DH road sweep of USM to advance to the BR Super Regional.
Tough draw facing LSU currently the hottest team in the country.
Oh what could have been for Tulane baseball.

But he wasn't ready... Needed to get some small time head coaching job or something like that.
God Dannen f**ked this up.

It's not beating a dead horse. This is a colossal f**k up that deserves an explanation.
Andy was our coach in waiting and would have been her far longer than Dannen.

Doing all that with only 7 healthy pitchers (and many aren't that good) but he has them playing confident and aggressive baseball. But hey, he doesn't have experience and it's hard to get rid of coaches with deep ties, blah blah blah.

Absolutely. One for the books. As a lifetime Tulane baseball fan passing on a Cannizaro will haunt me and many forever. The biggest slam dunk hire since Rich Rod. Dannen refused to take advice from knowledgeable baseball people. Instead he went outside of the most successful program at Tulane and hired someone else. Sad thing in 3 years Dannen or Jewett or both won't be around here but we will still be. It's really tough to watch these things happen year after year at Tulane under different AD's. I'm convinced it's the Tulane Board that's the one constant. I'm willing to give Dannen a chance but he's 0-3 on his 3 men's sport hires so far. He really botched not hiring Cannizaro or Riser. Lord forbid if AC gets to the CWS in year 1.

I too would have offered the job to Cannizaro, but seeing as the Miss St job opened in November, he had had previous conversations with the Miss St people behind the scenes and expressed reservations during the hiring process about the ability to recruit at Tulane, does anybody think he might have jumped ship from Tulane before having coached a game?

Not a chance. Tulane was his dream job. He grew up on our field. His dad was a Tulane assistant coach. He's a Tulane alum. His brother played here. He's a Tulane Hall of Famer. Perhaps the greatest player ever to play here. Was a special breed. Would have been the second coming of Rick Jones. Just funny how many non baseball people said he wasn't ready to be a HC at Tulane yet. . Had to go prove himself at a small school first then maybe. I had to laugh when I read that BS. The same will be saying he'd had left Tulane in a minute for a better job. They obviously don't know Andy.
He has a brilliant baseball IQ. He thinks 3 plays ahead of most. Paul Mainieri sat next to him at an Italian American awards banquet and was so impressed he hired AC the first chance he could. The Miss AD didn't even need to interview him. He already knew. Schlossnagle wanted to hire him as well. What could have been. It's really frustrating to be a Tulane fan. I just can't tell you. Always one step forward 3 steps backwards.

As much as I'm tired of the endless discussion about what could have been, I cannot believe that Andy Cannizaro would have left his alma mater high and dry with a move like that. Can we move on or do we need another 250 pages on Andy Cannizaro not being offered the Head Coaching job so that this thread competes with the Yulman Stadium thread?

And with 12 players gone to MLB draft & not getting the job after fall ball. AC should be coach of the year. I really hope he makes it to Omaha and wins it.

Sorry. It's a way for some to vent frustration. Needed therapy for many Tulane baseball fans.
As a Tulane baseball alum I'm more proud about what he has done then what frustrates me about him not getting the chance to do it here. That's why it's in the Men and Women of Tulane thread.
He's being praised for what he's accomplished as he should. I've moved on from him not getting our job. Can only hope Jewett gets us to a Super next year.

I get the frustration and the wanting to move on, however this is the single greatest blunder in Tulane Baseball history. I mean that with zero hyperbole.

Agreed. The endless grousing about the same thing over and over is tiresome. I think Tulane passed on Knute Rockne also. Should we start a thread about that? How much more can be said?

True but the guy they did hire turned out to be the greatest football coach in Tulane history.

And yes, you probably should start a thread about passing on Knute Rockne

I haven't renewed my family's football season tickets for the 1st time since the 40s bc of of the Andy Cannizaro screwup. I may still renew, but I feel like it was so big of a screwup it might have been the final straw for me. Just proves to me there is literally nothing they can't screw up.
