I like him. Only 1 month but he comes across as one of us...not pretentious and really in tune with the student=athletes and the fans.

I like that he isn't all "talky talky". Quick and to the point. And if he gets this IPF done this summer, I'm really going to side-eye Dannen and wonder just how much better off we would've been if he actually WORKED while navigating his way to the P2.
I don't yell. I don't scream. I don't argue. I just hit 'em over the head with a bottle.

If Dannen was here the IPF was scheduled to be installed this summer, things are moving along as planned he is just in place as the planning moves along!!! Gosha is continuing with his facility work.!!!

Regardless of whom anyone wants to say is responsible for the IPF, the fact remains: We've gotten more transparency and specifics from David Harris in ONE MONTH than we EVER got from our previous two ADs.

This, and he didn’t focus on a bunch of classroom stuff. We can all acknowledge that excellence in the classroom is *expected* with Tulane student-athletes. I don’t need to read the shout outs to the Tennis team’s combined GPA or that track had an academic all-American. If you’re only pushing us info once a month or so in this format— let’s talk about facilities, financial commitments, and the stuff we need to do to position ourselves to move up.

Thanks for sharing that Steve. Good start. Let's hope he means it when he says he's listening to us. Wonder who will replace Hunter.

Hunter's seat isn't even lukewarm, though it should be.

I like how he’s open for suggestions and I also like that if we feel something needs to be done differently he wants to hear about

I understand that Dannen turned down a $10,000 Green Wave Club donation because he has a problem with the contributing person ….

Not telling anyone anything they don't know. But he said he's listening so we'll see.

He wants to listen to the fans. How incredibly refreshing from the past. I may just walk back from across the street and tell him “Thanks “!

Exactly, I was not thrilled with the hire but starting to like this man and think he just might be a great hire!
