Re: Four ACC expansion candidates to replace Fla. ST.

Joining a conference will be like expansion for pro leagues. Even after deferring who-knows how much conference revenue, Tulane will have to come up with the "expansion fee," which is where the existing franchises make money and a big reason for expanding in the first place.

Re: Four ACC expansion candidates to replace Fla. ST.

In the past 26 years Tulane has three Top 10 poll finishes and a Cotton Bowl win. There are many D1 powers that can't say that.

Sadly, we did it on a shoestring budget. Gibson Hall sez, "Why pay more?"

Re: Four ACC expansion candidates to replace Fla. ST.

Yep, and having Stanford and Cal on our campus every other year in football would be fun and of interest to the student body, fan base and NOLA football fans in general as opposed to the likes of Charlotte, FAU, North Texas, UAB, & UTSA, The past two seasons put us on the map. Hard to believe i...

Re: An undefeated Tulane could land the #4 seed in the CFP

I hope Fitts has AD/HC candidates on the radar, for when Sumrall and the Wave run the table. It'll be the biggest story in sports!

A lot of blah blah blah but few specifics.

Conversely, we have one of college football's best defenders on the D line.

Re: How SMU made it to the ACC

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.

Re: QB Prospects in the Mix

In May I worked the LPGA tournament at Liberty National as a scorer, the standard bearer walking with me was a linebacker from Rutgers. When I told him I was a Green Wave, he smiled. "People were sleeping on Tulane for years, but not now. Everybody knows the Green Wave!"

Re: Is this true University cutting subsidy to Athletics???

For a cleats on the ground view, I met a Rutgers FB player in May, We chatted about the B1G and NIL, etc. I told him I was a Tulane alum, and his expression changed. "Oh the Green Wave! We were all sleeping on Tulane for years, but not anymore. You guys can play and everyone knows it!"

No good coach has stayed at Tulane, from Clark Shaughnessy and Bernie Bierman to Mack Brown and Willie Fritz.

Re: NCAA Avalanche players now want a piece of the $2 billion payout

Waiting to see the unintended consequences of this. Also from an agreement which does nothing to shield schools from antitrust suits from future athletes who will call that de facto salary cap a constraint of trade that has not been collectively bargained.
