Re: Faculty and non tenured employees unionize

NIL has killed athletics. Damn shame. Absolutely but I’d say “Amateur” Athletics. Anyone still using the term “Student” Athletes is in denial and living in the past. I would suggest that nearly all of the Tulane baseball players are student athletes as there is very little NIL being shared, and the...

Re: Tulane Beats WSU in the CCG 11-10! Champs!

What a run for the Wave, and they ain't done yet!

First time in 25 years they've repeated as conference tournament champs: last time was 1998-99 while in CUSA.

Re: Sion James Going Pro/Transferring

James excelled off the court in his four years at Tulane. He became the only AAC player to win the league’s sportsmanship award two years in a row, serving as the league’s student-athlete advisory committee (SAAC) chair and Tulane’s SAAC co-president. He maintained a 3.79 GPA in legal studies in bu...

I remember Ivan Pjevcevic from the Finney era, but sports reference has him listed as a 7-foot forward. He used to launch a couple of 3s a game back then.

Re: Michael Pratt NFL evaluation

Quarterback Michael Pratt, Tulane Last year, I picked former Houston signal-caller Clayton Tune as my guy here. He went on to start a game for the Cardinals after being drafted in Round 5. Once again, I'm going to go with a quarterback likely to be picked on Day 3. Pratt has flown under the radar i...

Re: Michael Pratt NFL evaluation

Pratt being in the discussion as a likely high 3rd day draft pick, as well as a top-10 QB in this draft class, is a credit to his hard work and development over 4 years. He was the 61st ranked pro style recruit in the 2020 HS class , 8 spots behind Ibieta. He's beaten the odds and taken the (now) un...

Re: Michael Pratt NFL evaluation

He's met with the Broncos both at the Senior Bowl and the Combine. Given that they just announced plans to release Russell Wilson after the official start of the 2024 NFL season ( and thus will endure $85 Million in dead cap money over the next two seasons ), it wouldn't surprise me if they took Pra...

Re: Charlotte Beats Hunter 75-71

He began by moving the Tulane bench to the opposite end of Fogleman (screwing up many long-held season seats, including mine). Did he give a particular reason why he made that change? We had just finished a season without a single conference win. When he took the job, he said he was going to change...

Re: Michael Pratt NFL evaluation

I think Pratt will be stellar in all of his workouts and interviews leading up to the Draft, and his stock will elevate as a result. Every team needs some quality and affordable depth at QB, as this NFL season has shown (nearly 60 different quarterbacks have started a game this season).
