Oscar Frayer, GCU basketball player that played last weekend against Iowa and was set to walk the stage and receive his diploma, died Tuesday in a car accident in California.

This TU team is so poorly prepared to execute fundamental plays. We may be swept by Canyon. What will it take to run TJ out of his office?

We were spoiled by Graf, whom I think was among the best collegiate announcers in the country. His passion and love for all things Tulane was evident, but he wasn't strictly a homer. AA occasionally shows some emotion, but his voice just wasn't created to be a play by play announcer. I don't think I'll ever get used to or comfortable with him, and don't think he's going to change.

nothing against Andrew...but Leafield-IMG made the decsion to hire him. TD, wanting to get rid of all things/people tulane, prior to his arrival, signed off on it

Coach TJ got tossed in the middle of the 1st Wave down 4-0.
Looks like he got tossed on purpose just to fire up the team.
May have worked now 4-2. Single then Hr by the Wave no outs.

Time to quit griping I guess and just accept the reality- a poorly coached team without any power. Seems we have more errors than runs, although overall stats belie that. Dannen made a terrible choice hiring a long time assistant with no record of leading his team to success and with no personality. All because the AD wanted to show his independence. Well, he did and how’s that going in baseball and overall?

If AA would spend more time learning about Tulane and less about which coaching tree the opposing manager comes from or who played in a 2005 summer league or referring to every foul ball as a flare, maybe just shut up, it would be far better

I don’t like to rag on him because I’m sure he’s a good guy but all of your complaints are accurate

I'm afraid you're correct. It's even more painful when you're ball club is subpar.

I haven’t been to one home game yet this season. I did go to Hammond to see us play SELA. I now find it difficult to even sit home and watch a full game on the stream. And I’m huge Tulane baseball fan. Prior to this season I hadn’t missed a home game in over 15 years and made a quite few road ones during that period. I find the games this season take way too long and are just not fun to watch. Almost painful at this point. Its been so disappointing this season after last years 15-2 shortened season. I now have discovered free time outside of Tulane baseball. For me it to attend in person a 3 1/2 to four hour game would consume about 6 hours of time including travel to and from the game.
Multiply that by just weekend games and I was spending nearly 18 hours of my weekend on Tulane. Now I’m able to condense that time to a few hours by skimming through the stream when we get on base or score runs. Now to get me back to the park in person Tulane is going to have to be a consistent regional team I not going to spend 18 hours of my weekends watching anything less. In the past I would live and die with every win or loss but now I no longer have that passion. I’ve found better ways to spend my time. I know there are others similar to me that feel that way as well.

I went to 2 home games. The Mask Mandate has done me in, not to mention our lack of success. Tulane acts like we should be honored to even be allowed to attend. One guy in the concession stand line told my friend behind me to “BACK OFF!”...couldn’t have been any uglier. He, my friend, has yet to attend another game. I have a 2hour, 10 minute round trip and also was a season ticket holder.

Yes that’s for sure. Plus they charging current season ticket holders full price for each game and I believe you have to buy at least 2 tickets. At least that’s how it was not sure if they sell single tickets yet. Too much of a hassle and time to watch mediocrity.
