Re: AAC Eliminating Divisions in Football by 2020

During the football media day press conference several weeks ago, Dannen mentioned this and noted that Aresco was working with members to identify permanent rivals — “someone close geographically and another matchup that made sense.” (Something to that effect). I remembered this because he specifica...

Re: My biggest concern

I understand your point, but Rich Rodriguez's impact on football has far outpaced Bill Yeoman or Emory Bellard. The smashmouth I formation of the 60's, 70's wasn't that much of a fundamental departure from the bone or veer. BTW: The rpo was an outgrowth of the veer. Rich Rod was innovative, but Mou...

It has never been harder to get into Tulane. The incoming Freshmen class, this coming August, has an average SAT score over 1500.
Of course but this has literally no bearing on getting athletes into Tulane as transfers.

Re: Tulane’s difficulty with transfers

..... I don’t know where TPS is getting the notion that a transfer needs to meet the normal student standards for non-athletes. That’s just not true, and couldn’t be true: there are no “minimum standards” for admissions, it’s an open market for admission and they look at the whole student. 30 ACT i...

Re: Ron Hunter new Tulane basketball coach

I like him. A lot. But if he wins 20 games here next year, it will be one of the greatest coaching turn-arounds of all time. And that’s ok. It’s ok to have high expectations and goals. It’s ok to be positive. It’s ok walk around and carry yourself with the belief of a winner. That’s a cultural chan...

We should all be rooting for Ucf so we get a better bowl (they don’t take a “good” AAC tie in bowl) . Also there is an interesting scenario Guerry presented on Twitter of Alabama winning, Ohio state losing and Texas winning where Ucf could have a shot at the playoff. There is a 0% chance after they...

Re: Line Opens Tulane 3.5 pts. > UAB

No, the oddsmakers don't watch. Their job is to put the line where as many bet on the favorite as is bet on the underdog. Because UAB lost to Coastal Carolina, a lot of gamblers will shy away from them. I would think the Blazers put forth a much better effort this week at home against us. I hope ot...

Tough opener. I wish we’d had Wake later in the schedule. I expect us to improve as the season progresses. I just think Wake is still ahead of us in talent and depth.

Some expressed disappointment at letting Temple get close a few times and I agree that it added unwanted anxiety. However, when they overcome it and win by hitting free throws, getting key blocks and breaking presses with dunks, it builds for the next time. This is weird to me. I mean, of course te...
