I certainly agree with this. I read some quote where he said he wanted to go where he was "loved and appreciated."
But my guess is that the leak was a pretext. He probably really did like Conroy and the staff and if they left he wanted to go to a place where he probably thought he could win. By the time Tulane hired Dunleavy, it really was too late to reverse course. Once you quit on your team you can't come back.
As for the staff, I'm neutral whether they stay or go. I think it's a little low bar mentality to be overly impressed with the recruiting. It was certainly capable but appears better than it was because virtually no recruiting occurred before they arrived.

Let's get Texas on our schedule for Dylan's two eligible years and kick his ass twice and their asses twice. Good young man. He should have stayed.

Found the article: http://www.hookem.com/2016/04/12/tulane ... -to-texas/

Bottom line is he was unhappy here, and that his mind was made up welll before any "leak" of Conroy's firing occurred. The "loved and appreciated" comment suggests to me that he considers himself a big time player and wants the adoration that goes along with it. Hope he finds it at UT.

The whiny, narcissistic entitlement (that equals the stereotype of all millenials) in those quotes is offputting to say the least. Good luck to the young man.

Hey let's lighten up. NLU's star player is named Czar Perry. That's the best sports name of the week.

I thought Sehic against LIU was better than the Big O ever was at Tulane.

Dylan leading scorer on Texas, taking duke to OT. Incredible he only had one foul the entire game.

Played great on offensive end of floor but not much on defense. Once the UT stud center fouled out, it was dunk central for Duke to win in OT. I love DO but not much has changed in two years. He still can't protect the rim.

Regardless UT looks like a serous tourney team and should be very competitive in Big XII coming off a ten win season last year. Sound familiar?? :mrgreen:
