Re: Tulane’s Victory Bell and Confederate connection

Always a hoot seeing Trumpist angst here! And after all, the McDonogh Monument across the street from Gallier Hall was only 122 years old, erected in 1898 and paid for with the nickel donations of New Orleans public school children, so why not destroy it? And, do so like true cowards under the cove...

Re: Tulane’s Victory Bell and Confederate connection

@Wave755 Wow man. I never thought you were so racist. Pity. Point was, Lincoln was hardly perfect, but he was great. Columbus, Cristobal Colon, argued by many in Spain to have been Spanish and not Italian (DNA studies continue at present), was hardly perfect but he was great. And yes, I have travel...

Sad, Corey Dauphine will always be remembered as a "magnificent might have been" for Green Wave football. He made some great runs for us, but we all feel he was only played to about 10% of his potential. He was often injured, mostly minor things. I can remember one game where he had something like ...
