No, I have more important things to do than look at the date of your foolish posts. That bar pass rate must be the reason we got 1 vote in the G5 poll. It also put plenty of points on the board last football season, and is the reason for this year's turnaround in the only other sport that matters.

And, TPS's post of today is for an article by Ed Daniels celebrating Dunleavy and the return of basketball excitement to Tulane.

Some might not know it but Ed Daniels is a Wave fan and hopefully his article will inform many more people in the New Orleans community of the return of competitive basketball for Tulane.

Hiring Ed would be a very sane idea indeed. :)

I emailed TD several times about ED... he would give Tulane instant credibility in the forms of sponsorship and media relations..something that has been lacking for over 20 years ...Tulane keeps hiring PR guys that do not realize metairie, is spelled "M-E-T-R-Y'....until this ends, Tulane will continue to have issues with Local Corporate Donations and media relations...after all...'it's all about the people, people "

Looking forward to Ed’s take on the current state of Tulane baseball. Something coming out soon.

What was Ed’s take on last year? Am I remembering correctly that he basically gave Jewett a pass?

Yes. More about stacking issues if I recall.

Ed’s story out. Looking for more scholarship money from our administration.
https://clarionherald.org/2018/05/23/cr ... -baseball/
The baseball solution is simple. Each year, give baseball three to five scholarships that are either academic or need-based. It is how Rice landed third baseman Anthony Rendon and how Vanderbilt signed ace lefty David Price.

Like he said we lack talent. It was a lazy article on his part though as he totally disregarded NCAA rules. You can't give academic scholarships to baseball players, or any athlete for that matter, that aren't available to all students. We also learned last year that you can't stack need based aid with scholarship money. A player can only get one or the other.

Right, if it were just as easy as saying “let’s give our players some academic scholarships” I would think they would do that, but I’m pretty sure they can’t do that.

Yes. Disappointed in Ed on this one. Not about to start up another “stack” discussion. We have too many already.

Need and academic can stack. Baseball money and need can stack. But whatever we offer in baseball money is taken away from whatever they offer in academic so all we are really doing is supplementing “our” baseball money in place “their” academic money. Vandy, Rice and others get around that by having minority scholarships which can be stacked with baseball money. It’s been promised here but never delivered upon.

All of this. Tulane needs to be able to meet 100% of need for all students in order to truly be relevant (in sports and otherwise), but that would likely require at least another $1.5B in the endowment.

sounds like Tulane needs to change "investment counselors"....obviously the ones retained are doing a terrible job...may I suggest the group of Dowee, Reely, Cheetum and Howe....I am sure they can earn some quick returns

haha. Unfortunately, it's not easy for a college to more than double its endowment - there is a reason that its endowment is where it is in the first place.

That's not correct. Baseball and need can't be stacked by NCAA rule which was revealed on this site last year and you agreed was true. As to Rice everyone went on about their scholarship program for Hispanics. It hasn't helped them. Graham was fired.

Yep. It's all about the endowment. Unless Fitts is extremely successful with his fundraising campaign for the endowment the problem will persist.

Yes. Baseball and financial aid are a counter. My mistake. It did help Rice get a few good ones over the years though.
Here’s a good explanation of it and how wealthy schools have a decided advantage.
https://www.collegesportsscholarships.c ... cs-aid.htm
One roadblock is harder to get past some schools simply have more non-athletics aid to give than others. Private schools and schools with wealthy endowments would benefit the most. The only fix is for schools to start accepting more of their inherent differences rather than trying to legislate them away.
