Dannen said last spring that Baseball was Tulane's only program that was currently positioned to compete for a National Championship. Now it has turned into an utter disaster. Dannen would be elevated in my eyes if he has the guts to pull the trigger after only one year and admit that he blew this one.
Fritz has improved the Football program but not as much as I had hoped after the first year and his recruiting is very troubling.
Basketball is the easiest to fix. It only takes a couple of players to turn the whole thing around, so I have no problem giving Dunleavy another year to show something.
Women's basketball is celebrating another WNIT. Very pathetic that they don't feel disappointed that they are underachieving. The Men reaching the NIT would be cause for celebration at this point.
Tennis appears to be doing well.
If TD fired Jewett during/after his first year, (1) it would cost money Tulane doesn't really have to buyout the coaches, perform a search, and hire new coaches (with no guarantees that they would be successful, no less), and, more importantly, (2) who would want to come here? Even though baseball and football were at different points prior to this season, the firing of Jewett in year 1 would likely have the same effect on baseball coaching prospects as the firing of Fritz in year 1 would have on football coaching prospects.
