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."

Sad to say but even Rick Dickson would have hired Andy. Tulane found the one AD in the country that managed to mess this slam dunk hire up.
Show Me something Dannen.

smartest thing ive seen on this board in ages. why hire a guy whose finger is so far from the pulse in dannen when you could have had a guy like this? i doubt he was considered but he should have been. sure the end of his career wasnt as successful as some would have liked but he was loyal and loved this city. he would not have tried to use tulane as a stepping stone to a bigger job as dannen seems to be doing. couple that with the fact that he has forgotten more about what it takes to make tulane successful than dannen will ever know, and he not only should have been considered, he should have been hired.

great, i just gave myself an ulcer. happy fathers day to me.

I stand by my post. I have seen better LSU teams. Even their fans acknowledge that. Manieri is a great coach. He usually has them together at this point. They also acknowledge their luck. FSU's three errors won them the game.

I have seen better LSU teams too, but you failed to take into account how the talent was around the rest of the country. They've been top 10 in the country almost all year. You were wrong.

You know more than their own fans. Right. Our fans love to say the SEC teams are overrated. Even their fans didn't feel like they belonged where they were ranked for most of the year. You can continue yoor hate fest on Tulane baseball all you want. They have created a thread on the other site for you to do just that. You can ruin your night, your summer and the rest of your life over it. That's your right. Our baseball season is over. I have been going to the games for over 50 years since they were free. I am a long time season ticket holder. I want the program to have success. However I get where it's at in importance. It's a minor sport. It's football season now. The players have reported for the summer session. Moving on.

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.

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.

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.

Agenda me still full of hate. I have criticized his gameday operations more than anyone. I have used my spot there to convey those directly to the Tulane reps that run it. I have used it to also share other misgivings of our fan base. I have gone about the position in the way it was intended and I am proud of my service there. I don't know if t will lead to any noticeable changes but I sure as hell have let them know what we think. Dannen appeared there once briefly. He has no idea who I am. But carry on with your agenda of hating on me. I'll just continue to feel sorry for you.

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.

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.

: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.
