I wonder if he's ever experienced -20F?


Like I've stated before, I am extremely familiar with Syracuse. Blizzards, icy roads, snow and ice piled up 5 feet high for walking paths. Total misery in the winter. There is some campus life and a few bars, but nothing that compares. They have 2 good restaurants, Pastabilities and Dino BBQ. The rest are either bland or frozen. The economy is not good either ever since Kodak went bad. Carrier employs some people, but as a town it's just not is the same ballpark. The Carrier Dome is nice, but average at best for football. They do have a nice and new covered practice field that just opened. However, 'Cuse is not all that for football. Now Basketball is a whole different ballgame.

I agree TPS, Scott would be making a mistake going to Syracuse over Tulane unless he majors in Broadcasting, Journalism, Musical Theatre or Music. I believe USN has them ranked at #61. Don't get me wrong, Syracuse is a wonderful university and I'm so proud of my son for going there (graduating this May with honors). However, when comparing the 2 cities and each universities football situation, Tulane wins hands down IMO.

I just went to 247 and they are Crystal Balling him 100% to Rutgers so who knows wtf is going on?

The kid would be making a mistake going to Cuse. Tulane will have a better football team than Cuse in less than two years.


I wouldn't bet on that Tim. Dino Babers has every bit as good a track record as Willie Fritz. And Syracuse is in a P5, while we're not. I wouldn't ever compare Syracuse to New Orleans, but the poster above, whose son is at 'Cuse, should know that Kodak was based in Rochester, not Syracuse.

I do know that Kodak is based out of Rochester, however, they had a presence in Syracuse. I was trying to make a point that the upstate NY region as a whole is not doing to well and behind the employment, business development curve as compared to the rest of the country. Jobs have been lost and manufacturing is hurting in this area. What a shame, it's a beautiful area and I hope it comes back. There is just no comparison between New Orleans and Syracuse. I know that Syracuse University is in a P5, however, so are many other schools that don't have as much potential in football as Tulane does IMO. But then again, Tulane has to do something with it.

Hateful and apropos of nothing in this thread.

Any doubt anyone may have about whether CanjunFanatico is a troll should be dispelled by this. It appears that the CajunTroll is weary of being confined to the OTHER LOUISIANA SCHOOLS forum and being limited to insulting only the few folks that are bored enough to read those threads. Follow my lead and put him on IGNORE.

Looking forward to playing ULL next season...

I believe his rather rude comment referred to Syracuse NY, not NOLA.

I started the thread because I found the article on-line, it was interesting, and I figured you guys would be interested as well as I didn't see anything related posted about this weekend's visits. When the topic turned to which city has a better quality of life in regards to the weather, is there any really doubt? New Orleans by a mile. Stop being so sensitive.

My dad graduated from Tulane and dearly loved the school. I followed Tulane sports with him long before I was ever a Cajun fan.

Oh and I played NORD ball before Greenie games and stamped my feet on the old steel end zone seats---I play and sing the Tulane fight song at parties and actually almost like the lady that sings "Olive Green and Blue we love you" for HC---well she use to back then----but Geaux Cajuns now!!!

Another thing to consider is that Babers' offense saw their qb pass for nearly 5000 yards and 46 TDs last season at BGSU. Perhaps Fritz's reputation of being a run-first coach at GSU didn't help things with recruiting Scott.

Most of these dual threat qbs want to showcase their arms because that's what is going to get them noticed for a pro career. Winning is great, but putting up big numbers and creating a highlight reel are every bit as important. Ryan Griffin barely won anything at Tulane, but played in an offense that showcased his abilities, and in the end it earned him a ticket to the show.

Flasher, who gives a rat's a-hole? And, it sure must be a great time to buy a house in "little Lafayette" but caveat Coon-asses, prices still have a long way to fall before they finally "bottom out." :winkgrin:

Are we off his list?
What didn't help things was not recruiting him until mid December.

I dont think we're off his list, Dr. Box, but it does seem he's pretty firm in his commitment to Syracuse. He was hanging out with the Syracuse OC yesterday before his visit here. But it really would have helped if he was recruited earlier. Hopefully he's openminded.

We're on the same page, Wavetime. Despite the brutal winters, the Central NY area is a beautiful part of the country. The Finger Lakes are really a great attraction, and even the snow is something different to be appreciated. It sucks if you have to shovel it, otherwise it's beautiful for the first 24 hours. The cold is manageable, except when the wind is blowing, which is almost all the time!

There is no comparison between New Orleans and Syracuse, but I could see a teenager wanting to experience a change of scenery. I can also envision the "family" attitude that Dino Babers is selling. He's a good coach and very down to earth recruiter.

Because this was a general thread regarding the article. I posted his decommit on the thread specifically about him within minutes of his announcement. Figured that was the proper place and it didn't need to be duplicated elsewhere. That's why we have thread titles.

Okay...okay...I'm guilty of being overly sensitive to people that want to rag on New Orleans...the crime...the filth...the corruption. Of course there's an element of truth to all those points, but where I'm from, "you don't say nothin' about my momma unless she's your momma too". Ditto for my hometown and my alma mater. If your userId was 'GreenWaveFanatico' instead of 'cajunfanatico', I wouldn't have thought twice about it. I didn't get the correlation between 'vomit on the street' and 'Syracuse'. For this and my numerous other shortcomings I apologize.

And one other thing for the exflash:

Your mom sounds like she was a lovely person. She was obviously intelligent and accomplished or she would not have been a Newcomb grad. I'm also sure that as a Tulane grad she would have enjoyed watching the Wave beat the living sh*t out of ULL next year.

Looks like Fritz is ramping up the push for Ty Pigrome. He just offered the FB from Clay-Chalkville HS as well.

Similar to what he did by offering the WR Coleman that played with Lindsey Scott.
