The transformation of the roster in just a few weeks’ time is almost impossible to comprehend.
If he fails it won't be for a lack of effort. Kinda cool that we got two positive forces leading fball and hoops. That has never happened in the past decade plus.

Re: Future OOC Football Schedule/Games

I don't care what some people say, there are LSU people that want to play Tulane, especially the older folks. The younger crowd is indifferent, but they believe they are better than us. All it takes is 1 victory,,,just 1,,,then we'll be off and running again. The press would eat it up after they ge...

Re: UNO Game 2 Thread

This is a highly talented team that is being destroyed by poor pitching. Maybe it's time to invest in a good pitching coach? 10 runs on the road should win you the game, no questions asked.

Re: USF Series

This game 2 is the worst display of pitching I've seen in a Division I game.

18-11, and this game has LOTS of time left in it. It's so wide open.

Wave wins game one, 9. to 2. :D
23-11 overall and 5-2 in a good AAC aren't the problem we face.

Bad pitching and nonconference SOS in the 140s will be what dooms us more than likely.

There has been CLEAR improvement from last year, though - this is more like Tulane baseball.

Think about it. When you talk like that you know our gym is an issue. I loved the ease of going to Devlin as a student.

GL- I get where you’re coming from but remember if we drop basketball we are out of the AAC.
Actually, our value to the conference increases without hoops. It's currently a net negative. Football is turning a corner and is soon going to give us some benefit.

It’s a shame that Dunleavy is such a narcissist to think he should still be coaching this four win and zero conference win team. If Dunleavy had any integrity, he would have resigned midway through the season and let his top assistant coach Doug Stewart take over the team. If Coach Stewart had done...

Dannen can’t fire him unless the boosters are willing to pay off his buyout. If the boosters want him gone it will happen. If not, Dannen can’t do anything about it.

Re: Temple Game Two Thread

I actually think that we have a decent squad to build off of. I think that Dunleavy has recruited well - but I don't buy into his coaching ability at a program like Tulane.

We need a certain type of coach. I honestly think that a dull, defensive mind would do okay in this league.
