You know what you are pathetic how in the hell do you know what Sumrall's dream job is are you Sumrall, do you know what his family wants are you his wife, lol We are far from Troy, 1 step from Power 5, Troy is not in Power Conference radar. If he gets us to Power 5 think of the money available to keep him!!! Speculation is stupid, sign of a loser, yes a loser and defeatist attitude!!! As far as any of us knows Sumrall could be here 5+ years where he can command much more that one and out!!! Biggie dude he has not coached a down for us, just came from Troy with all the coaching openings why us and no one us, tell me dude why us and no one else with the other openings. Here at Tulane he can make the College Playoffs not at Kentucky. Enjoy the moment and stop your crap no one wants to hear it at this point!!!!
Hey, gbg, I suggest you stop hitting the bottle and posting. Your brilliant between the lines insights go downhill when you do so. You write in run on sentences. What is worse is they literally do not make sense. This all adds to the mental image of you as Newman grown old, posting from your basement. Talk about a loser. I’ll remind you of this post when you’re posting about Sumrall betraying us after he leaves. Tulane is not his final coaching job, insisting it is shows your lack of understanding of the coaching profession and college football overall.
Dingbat as all negative people you always leave out some very important facts, he has a young family, Sumrall's children born at Oschner here in New Orleans, young coaches with children are rarely jumping around the country looking for new coaching opportunities unless they are really not satisfied. Would you move young children around. That is one of my considerations and makes the most sense that Sumrall builds his resume for maybe 5 years becoming a higher-level coach then make a move when it is right for his family. You completely ignore family in your negativity!!! Once he proves he is Power level coach here he can command and look for a final destination!!!
Wrong again gbg. There are a number of professions, in addition to college coaching, that require families to move frequently--sometimes almost yearly. It's something that comes with the turf one decides to build their career on--and it certainly won't keep them from taking a promotion or better situations when offered. Our best hope is that Tulane becomes a clearly better football program than many current P4 programs, and that Sumrall and his family fall in love with N.O.--those two factors might keep him here long term, but not wanting to move your family isn't a factor that will keep any coach from taking a better gig.

DfromCT wrote: Thu Jan 18, 2024 10:05 am There's nothing negative or doom and gloom about predicting Sumrall will be the next Kentucky HC. It's his alma mater, and many would guess his dream job. If Stoops leaves and he gets it, it will mean he's done great things at Tulane. I'm not saying it to make myself feel good when it happens, I'm saying it so nobody is surprised if it happens sooner than we would want given that he's been here a month and hasn't coached a game.

How do you think Troy fans felt when he left after two seasons? Particularly since most of the college football world would consider it a sideways move if you threw out the compensation, I'd say they were more pissed off than Georgia State fans were to lose Fritz.

I would love for Sumrall to retire 20 years from now as the most successful coach in Tulane History. I'd also love to win Powerball. Not sure which has longer odds.

Another primo example of gbg hypocrisy--accusing anybody of reading somebody else's mind--something that gbg makes a career of. gbg is the ultimate speculator, and yet he warns against it--an absolute hysterical level of hypocrisy.
Coach Sumrall: (Why Tulane: "Right Place at the Right Time") When you are dealing with a young family man with kids in school, that means family included!!! Read between the lines and use common sense, Tulane offered a good opportunity, not a rebuild job, a place him and his family is familiar with, all pluses. He is not going to up and move his young family in less than 2-3 years my best guess is 5 years or more. Unless we give Coach Sumrall reason to leave, he is here for the short term plus. If we go to a Power Conference, he will be here more 5+ years.

There have been many decades when saying that Tulane was the “right place at the right time” would be just nice words to say. That’s all different now for one reason, which is why I believe that he meant it, and is selling incoming players on it as well. The reason is simply that the twelve team CFP field is swiftly becoming all that matters in college football now. Everything else pales in comparison. Eleven of the twelve have to compete to enter through the front door. Only one can enter through the back door, and Tulane is in prime position to do that. We have a much greater chance of being in the CFP than many, many other good schools in Power Five conferences. So yes, it’s the right place at the right time. For both coaches and players to make a name for themselves. And yes, move up as soon as the opportunity arises. We are in a much better position with our coaching doors revolving than in landing someone who sticks around (i. e. Gibson, Scelfo, Toledo….).

Well said Greenanyway .

And for all the fools who feel that Kentucky is a better job and that Coach Sumrall is merely treading water until Kentucky's job comes open you are wrong .

We , Tulane , will likely be among the Playoff 12 multiple times while Kentucky languishes in the lower middle of the SEC . Coach Sumrall could well lead us into a P conference and it will be necessary for us to retain our successful coach and not fail to do so as Dannen failed Washington .

One concern certainly is the college playoffs excluding a G5 team. And that certainly could happen.

Once again an idiot comment, you site exceptions of course exceptions in anything, but seeing Sumrall at the Pels and Saints games he loves it here brought his kid to a game, knows a ton of people all pluses not to pick up and move his family til the kids grown up when he can demand Saban type of pay!!!

I love how some folks assume we will "likely be the playoff team from the G5". We've had exactly 1 season this century and 2 in the last 60 years when that would have been the case, and we're no longer in the strongest of the G5 conferences. SEC jobs are still much more attractive than G5 jobs, all day every day, and when it's your alma mater calling, most coaches go in a heartbeat. Gbg is reading between the lines again, we know the track record for that dating back to Dannen leaving him high and dry in October.

I hope the Sumrall era is marked by all of the great achievements we ALL hope for. Moving out of the C-USAAC into anything better would be huge. I don't think it's as close as others do, but I'd love to be surprised.

Yea, right gbg. That’s why the coaching profession is hallmarked by young coaches, and their families, moving every 2 or 3 years—whether they take their kids to a basketball game or not. Quit being such a clown. 🤡

Don't drink anymore, Senior Olympian at 69 years old, lifestyle, nutritional changes as my family has died young cancer, congestive heart failure mostly due to effects of cigarette smoke. I proved I can change and learn as friends and family told me my life was doomed because of family health history. My brain capacity has allowed me to challenge doctors and investors and I won in all cases. Our own Dr. Raoul Rodriguez, MD is an orthopedic surgery specialist in New Orleans, LA. He is affiliated with medical facilities Tulane Medical Center and 3 other pediatrist wanted to fuse bones in my foot for what they said was a bone problem ended up being a tight tendon issue that my daughter and her professor at St. Augustine College of Physical Therapy solved with tendon stretching therapy. How many of you would question and win over a 50-year Orthopedic Doctor and Professor Dr. Rodriguiz. How many of you had unnecessary surgery. The pain in my Foor started 2 miles into a run and radiated to my knee. Thus, friction caused by the tight tendons shot up my leg through my nerves in my tibia tendon. These 4 doctors took MRI and x-rays after the inflamed tendons were not inflamed instead of when the pain occurred during the run. False diagnosis by 4 expert foot doctors. I questioned and that has allowed me to keep running approaching 70 years old, played basketball with my grandson this weekend!!! Don't want to get into investment because I have become well off financially after a CEO that nearly broke the company I worked for!!! The lord has blessed me with a high IQ and deep thought process that I can deeply analyze situations and while not perfect really look beyond conventional thinking!!! Thus my sometime boring long-winded analysist of situations. I praise the lord because my health and financial situation was achieved without the assist of the experts in each field.

This is the biggest concern. There's got to come a point where the P2 are either part of the NCAA or they're not. And if they choose to exclude half of the FBS because they feel like it, its up to the NCAA to say, either you include all FBS conferences, or the schools in P2 are no longer allowed to play NCAA schools, or participate in championships in any other sports. And barring all else, a class action suit on the part of fans of the remaining 8 conferences with regards to being disenfranchised illegally.

If you are so smart, why do you check your brain when you sit at the keyboard to post here? How come you haven't figured out something as simple as changing your monitor resolution and/or brightness so you don't have to bold everything? Yes, Newman, you are the smartest guy in the room as you've been telling us.

And those are some of the key reasons why I can't believe that the P2 or P4 would be so stupid as to try to exclude a single G5 spot in the CFP. For that one spot, they will silence the G5 masses. They would be incredibly shortsighted to let their greed over one spot trigger a host of problems for themselves.

Tune in to WGNO-TV ch 26 at 10pm broadcast. Ed Daniels going to have an interview with Jon Sumrall.
He just may silence the haters out there at some point . 🤗🤗🤗
