Re: MBB heading to Cancun Challenge Thanksgiving 2024

Should be interesting to see how Hunter spins this tournament as an excuse at the end of the year. Going back to the heat that ended in New Orleans about a month or so prior was rough on the team. The time spent at the pool in that hot tropical sun drained their energy. Then they had to come back t...

He's tried to say it nicely a few times, so he said it bluntly this time: GIVE IT A REST. Is that difficult to understand? :roll:

Re: Memphis AD to get $250K bonus should they land a P4 spot

I wonder what we could generate in pledged donations contingent upon a P invite? And/Or to fund a bonus for the AD? What would our application pool have looked like had we said "There's a $1 million bonus if we get into a P conference under your leadership."?

Re: Where are you Mr. Slatten?

Give it a rest? Give it a rest? We do appreciate what he has done, but if you are a fan, who wants the best for your team, how can you “give it a rest?” We’re not asking him to go beat on Gibson Hall’s doors. We’re just asking if he knows anything. Remember, there are times when he comes on this bo...

Re: Where are you Mr. Slatten?

No one is attacking Mr. Slatten. Are you crazy? We, the fans, simply want answers to very simple questions that will determine our fate as an athletic program. The questions asked have been done with the utmost respect. I admire Mr. Slatten for giving us a sliver of his time. Respect, not attacking...

It appears the overwhelming majority are requesting answers cordially. And there are people who know exactly what is happening. We are just looking for one person closely associated with Tulane (employee, major donor, board member, etc.) to provide us the plan moving forward. I don’t think we shoul...

I think he said give it a rest to people calling him out personally, demanding that he speak for Gibson Hall. He doesn't owe the Tulane fans anything, he does what he does out of the generosity in his heart. We should heed his call and give it a rest calling on him to play a role that should be fill...

Re: AAC NIL Compensation Cap

Put up or shut up time for the BOA and Fitts. Are we in the game, or not? We cannot make a typical Tulane half=assed effort to be included. Because a day late and a dollar short is going to equate to about $50 million/year by the 2030s, assuming we get into the ACC or Big 12. Now is the time to reno...

Re: "O" Line from CCS

Those so called experts have never watched a single Tulane game. We've been fortunate to have backs like Spears and Hughes who could take on contact in the backfield or at the line and still get yards. Pratt used his mobility to our advantage to also alleviate the problems. It's a hard position to ...

Some posters on this board have been claiming we have a terrible O-Line since this board started. Every OL in the country gives up sacks, pressures and tackles for losses. Ours is regarded by many "experts" as one of the best in the G5. It's time to open your eyes to the fact that our O-Li...

Re: Could an Indoor Practice Facility be coming Nov ‘23? Stay tuned...

To my understanding, our IPF is going to be as much or more for the student body as it is for the football team. Either way, the Cotton Bowl Dividend has been wasted, as predicted back in December of 2022 and January of 2023. Tulane wasn't ready for the success we enjoyed and still has ambivalence t...

Re: How SMU made it to the ACC

SMU is already about $200 million ahead of where they would be had they stayed put. $300 million was pledged to replace TV revenue, and that's more than $200 million above and beyond what the AAC would have paid. So they didn't give up a thing. Then they raised an additional $100 million in the WEEK...

It's costing SMU more than half-a-billion dollars total to join. Oh wait, that's only middle market capital so no big deal. Misleading. SMU Alumni pledged $300 million to make up the shortcoming of TV revenue. Actually that more than makes up the pittance they left on the table had they stayed in t...

He was used in relief and logged 25 strikeout in 17+ innings, but averaged close to an earned run/inning as well. Clearly, Ulhman likes him.
