Re: Troy Dannen

Re: Mike Dunleavy is now worst of the worst

I had some hope for this hire, but neither on court performance nor recruiting has experienced a significant uptick. Conroy got in more talented players (who either underperformed and/or transferred). The one thing that I can say is that individually players do seem to progress in their overall skil...

Re: Dunleavy Dumpster fire continues Wave falls to win less Alabama A&M 67-59

The Furman coach was born in New Orleans, according to his wikipedia page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Richey I still think this guy would be the best hire, if he would come here. Yes, above the LSUA coach who's never coached above the NAIA level. I don't think that coach is a bad coach, just...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Guys this recruiting class will take time to develop, Dunleavy took players from Memphis and UCLA, so you have no knowledge if you criticize his recruiting class. Just like you did Fritz you expect instant development when steps are in place for long term success. You have coaches that have proven ...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Tulane has tried it from all angles from a coaching standpoint: 3 straight high major assistants (Clark, Finney, Dickerson), a sitting head coach from a low major (Conroy), and a coach with pro experience (Dunleavy). I don't know if there is one particular profile that would predict more success at ...

Well, if he goes, he goes. That is life. At the very least he didn't have a hand in any recruitment of anyone Tulane signed yesterday, so no hard feelings there either. If anything, this might make Tulane realize how tough the competition is for good assistants. Maybe they sweeten the offer for the ...

Re: FSU Game Thread

PG help should be coming in the form of Jordan Walker, who is sitting out as a transfer.

I think Daniels will be fine. I don't know if Cornish will be anything different than what he has been thus far, which is highly inconsistent.

Tulane. The brown eye of college football.

A genuine D1 passing quarterback is needed to run a genuine D1 offense. There's talent at receiver and certainly running back.

The NCAA will try to make themselves look good by coming down hard on the violators. Duke being on the list is a big black eye for NCAA Basketball.

Tulane and LSU basketball off the hook

The previous largest comeback was 32 points in 1950, when Duke beat Tulane 74-72 after being down 54-22 in the first half. Kentucky's 31-point comeback against LSU in 1994 was the second largest. http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/22549481/drexel-sets-men-division-1-record-comeb...

Re: Wave hangs tough but loses to Wichita State 93-86

Great 2nd half effort by the Wave. If Frazier and Reynolds could've gotten on track in the first half, the game might still be going on. My opinion of the freshmen is different than some others here. I think Ajang will eventually become a real contributor by next season. He's big, long and not a sti...

Re: Tanner Lee

Can anyone show me a recent example of another college qb who 1) had an awful won-loss record (9-22 as a starter), 2) a mediocre TD-interception ratio (1.2 : 1), and 3) wasn't accurate (career 55% completion) that went on to have any kind of a meaningful NFL career?
