I’m not talking about anything but baseball. Someone posted baseball times were dictated by ESPN and I corrected that.
Actually what you said was the conference controls the start times for conference games: Then you changed to say the coach made the decision. Bottom line is baseball is no different than any other sport when it comes to ESPN+:

Baseball is different. The home team controls the non-conference schedule times. Conference game start times are controlled by the conference. Nothing to do with streaming or tv.
That’s correct.
Yes it's correct that you contradicted yourself and that baseball is no different than basketball. You were also wrong that someone brought up baseball. They were talking about basketball and the time being switched to 6 instead of 7 the last 2 seasons.

I can only explain it but can’t make you understand. Our baseball coach and not ESPN controls the start times. I offered up info as to what I received from JU in an email to all former baseball alums. As Robert has said you have to have the last word as usual and twist words so you can continue to argue. I suggest you just email coach JU and tell him he’s wrong about start times. I have no more time to waste on this nonsense. Good luck.

LOL.I didn't twist your words. You clearly contradicted yourself. You started by saying the conference chose the start times for conference games then switched to it being the coach. As I said no one was talking about baseball start times they were discussing basketball start times for ESPN+ games. I just didn't want people to be misled by you , which you do all the time, as to how the decxsions are made. They are no different in basketball than in baseball. But you truly are the only poster who who has never admitted he's wrong. Your streak continues.

Popping back in because I saw talk of facilities and wanted to let you know David Harris's vision of a practice facility at UNI is coming to fruition now. Our state BOR approved it today and we have a decent sized group of donors that have completely covered the cost of it at this point. So the positive spin for you guys is David can put together a "vision"

The potential downside for you is

The facility was initially introduced by David 7 years ago. Not a dime was raised for it. It got so bad it was removed from the master plan of athletic facilities.

The group of donors that is paying for the 8 figures for the facility approached our interim AD in mid-January after he had a couple of weeks to settle in after David was gone and said "We want to make this happen. How can we work with you, now that David is gone, to get this done". The press release on it today has quotes from the interim-AD and the coaches of MBB, WBB, and VB that have confirmed the money is there and the design is being worked on now and ground work will begin sooner than later.

Since David has been gone our new wrestling facility - which to be fair David was here when it was initially announced - has seen significant progress from donors (also because David is gone) with more renderings, actual blue prints, etc. being released.


TLDR - David will do well to get you drawings of the facilities. You may just have to wait until the next AD to get them.

What did David Harris do to piss you off so much. It's one thing to go on another school's athletics bulletin board after an AD leaves your school for that school to vent. It's another level of hatred to come back a few months later and continue. Is your "warning" going to change anything here or back at UNI? If not, what's the purpose?

Well, we essentially have the drawings already so your scenario does not apply.

Consider it a ghost of christmas future.

It's funny, everything UNI fans saw and hated about Dannen is exactly what Tule has issues with and complain about. With David the initial sentiments at UNI were exactly like we can see out of Tulane. They lasted about a year and it went south after that. Worth watching on both ends.

Well Harris's first hire was one of the best football coaches in the country.

How many years was the extension Hunter signed over the summer? And how much of an issue is it for Tulane to buy him out of that contract?

Hunter runs his "DIS" and "NON" basketball systems...Disfunctional Offense and Nonfunctional defense....and yes I know I needed a "y" in disfunctional, but the misspelling seems correct since we are posting about Hunters coaching(?) expertise

Men's and women's basketball lose again last night.

That's an interesting idea. I wonder how she is perceived in the D1 coaching ranks. She certainly has experience at every level, and steered some of our best recent recruits to us from John Curtis.

Think the baseball coach deserves a little time- he seems to be making sound decisions. We lost baseball after Katrina and Jones was never able to get it back on track, Pierce did miracles in the time he was here but performed so well we lost him to Texas. I have enjoyed Tulane baseball for forty years during times when it was the only sport about which we could be proud. Hopefully the current coach can restore some of that luster.

What's everyone's feelings towards Joe Pasternack? Born and raised in Metairie. Coached at UNO, Indiana and now UCSB. 48 years old. Has UCSB winning. Salary shows around 520K. UNO record was under .500, but he did have 2 good seasons. Would he be someone to consider?

I agree. I think team is motivated, does not quit and coaching decisions have been solid. There are issues but they are experimenting and finding better lineups, roles, etc.
