I have a small problem with the docs being released. I'm much more concerned over content however and I appreciate someone with winning as such a focus. I think he'd be a great hire.

I'll be incredibly flummoxed by an in house hire.

According to Asher, Fielkow had nothing to do with the leak. It was all Eric.

Eric got it from someone. A real head scratcher on how you send this to a journalist and not expect it to leak.

A total of one of our 5 candidates named candidates are women.

All are white.

I don't think the narrative about the poor old oppressed white guy fits here. We're looking at 4 white guys and white woman.

Hours and hours of prep work. Didn't even get an interview.
Benson controlling all things at Tulane. Threatened to cut off all use of IPF and donations.

If we hire Burke I am done unless she can's both coaches.

I straight up don;t understand why people have a problem with this going public.

As predicted someone in the know leaked Arnie's plan to Asher to expose what was going on. Benson is senile and will be dead soon, Payton won't be here much longer. We've now become beholden to the Saints b/c we begged for their money for a stadium instead of building our own IPF. This is corruption and a screwup on an absolutely massive level.

I sent it out via Email to 50 Tulane supporters and also posted it on FB. It's every Tulane diehard fan's dream for what can and should take place.
He was passed over for lack of AD experience.
He could be president of the US but he's not qualified to be AD at Tulane. Lol
You can't make this stuff up.
Wouldn't that pretty much eliminate everyone except Burke and Sidwell? Unless they're considering Deputy or Associate or Assistant AD as AD experience. Doing their best to put roadblocks to success everywhere they can.

This must be what Goldring meant by Tulane's "inherent challenges". Only Tulane can have a Board so clueless as to not know their aZZ from a hole in the ground.
And lack of head coaching experience (or even coordinator experience) sure didn't keep them from hiring Coach Johnson. Come to think of it Fitts was never a university president nor was Cowen, right?

Great point, shows this is all about the Benson's corrupting the process both with the FBall HC and now the AD.

This whole thing is going to make it a lot harder for us to bring in a qualified outside candidate.

The drama and politics surrounding this do not make Tulane seem like an attractive option to an outside hire.

We had Baylor and Auburn candidates interested 24 hours ago, being interviewed. This just FUBARs the whole process for potentially luring someone talented from outside.

I know people just want to see Rome burn so we can rebuild it, but that's an illusion. It's never going to be burnt to the ground and we're never going to get to rebuild it. I know people are getting their catharsis right now but I think we just assured that BB is the hire. Nobody else will want to step into this mess.

I respectfully disagree. If anything this means BB has less of a chance and may lesson the influence of the Saints mafia regarding BB/this hire.

The stink emanating from the Wilson Center is well known throughout the industry. We need to start acting like a real athletic program and all this doc did was lay out a plan to do so. That's progress and actually judging by wins/losses. Your POV is very Yggie-ish, just bury your head in the sand.

I completely disagree. In the history of Tulane athletics when the administration/board gets embarrassed it usually forces them to do the right thing.

You would think Benson has enough on his plate worrying about his crappy football team.

And the YOGGIES are vilifying Arnie, saying he's classless to have let this leak, and they're glad he's not under consideration. What a bunch of losers.

OUG I usually agree with you on just about everything. I disagree on this one. This man deserved an interview. It needed to be exposed.
Benson and Loomis controlling everything. Fielkow was going to fire CJ and the Saints probably don't want this to happen. The fix is in.
