Re: Sion James declares for NBA draft, Holloway to the portal

If this goes to form and James, King and Holloway follow the grads Cross and Forbes in leaving, Hunter loses his entire starting lineup for much of last season.

Re: Baseball 8 vs USF 9 in 10 innings in Game 3

2/3 series win is a pleasant surprise. Let's hope we can get some momentum.

And we may need to start a petition to get Cheerleader to throw out the first pitch every game... :mrgreen:

Re: New AAC Commissioner on Men's Hoops

If they want to act money is the issue, which it isn't, they should just go on the road and save the home guarantees. Of course, last year's schedule was nicely dumbed-down. It's a tired tactic with a 0% success rate and a near 100% "makes things worse" rate. The problem with basketball a...

Re: 24/25 Men’s Basketball recruiting

What does next years roster look like today? From Nola.com “Forward Gregg Glenn, who started once, center Percy Daniels and guard Asher Woods are the only rotation players who have not posted they were leaving. Glenn averaged 3.6 points, Woods averaged 2.4 and Daniels 1.9” Lol I think if I played 4...

New AAC Commissioner on Men's Hoops

This is more broadly conference news (or analysis, really) but I felt like it belonged here at least for now given our current discussions about the state of the MBB roster and coaching. Obviously, if a mod disagrees it can always be moved. https://www.nola.com/sports/tulane/soon-to-be-aac-commissio...

Re: Sion James declares for NBA draft, Holloway to the portal

Worth noting in all of this, and the stench of Hunter's retention that clouds everything, is that declaring for the NBA draft does not mean James is actually gone; as we've seen before with other players, you can go through the process and get the benefit of pro evaluations and tips on where you nee...

Re: Sion James declares for NBA draft, Holloway to the portal

As we all know, players can pull their names out of the draft before a certain date, but the 2024-25 Green Wave MBB just took a massive hit if Sion does go pro. Holloway would have been the best player on the team, the focal point of the offense, and he chose to go elsewhere. Doesn't that tell you ...

Not that it seems to be the issue here, but there are *lots* of New Orleans law firms that have offices in both New Orleans and Houston; if someone is even a junior partner it should not be any huge hurdle to transfer. Again, with the caveat that I know no one and no specifics about this individual ...

It tells you a lot about each of them that Fritz wanted a low buyout and Hunter a high one when they had leverage (Fritz obviously had more, but Hunter did have some when he got extended).

Loyola New Orleans came a lot closer to closing a decade or so ago than most realize or anyone wants to admit.
