In the pictures of the field above the green does look more like grass than the bright green in the original rendering.

Re: New Hoops Commit - Ben Callahan-Gold

Ben is the son of comedian Judy Gold. He got lots of props for committing to Tulane from celebrities on twitter including Ben Stiller. I just heard an interview with Judy who was in town a couple weeks ago to bring her son. She sounded like a proud mom that her son was going to Tulane but being a J...

Re: Mobile Ticketing

Seems like a good idea. Concerts have been doing this for a while. It will cut down the lucrative scalping of Tulane football tickets! I believe it will allow you to send tickets to others, i.e., if my wife wants to go in early while I’m packing up from tailgating she can have the tickets for her an...

Re: AAC Announces No Marching Bands

When I saw the thread title I thought “that makes sense. The bands are usually sitting in tight quarters”. Being spread out on the field seems safer than being in the stands. Could also have to do with the whole process of bringing a large group that is then exposed/exposing to non-band attendees an...

Re: 2020 Football Season

The "virus stuff" is not mostly over, and right, wrong, or indifferent, if there are fans at sporting events, masks will be required. The good news is that Campus Connection sells angry wave masks! The more I think about this, the bigger question will be how strictly they enforce the mask rule that...

Re: 2020 Football Season

Article in today’s paper about the Saints and playing with 13,000 fans in the Dome. We all know how little of an effect 13k in the Dome has. At worst, we have college games on TV only with no fans, but even that is seeming less likely now with the virus stuff pretty much over. I think we could even ...

When I first read it before the victim was revealed I thought “two kids being drunk probably fighting over a girl”. The fact that he hit a girl makes it 100 times worse.

Re: Teshaun Hightower (update: Charged with murder)

If I can recall back to law school, felony murder is a murder that occurs in the commission of a dangerous felony, whether the murder was intended or not and whether you were the trigger man or not. Based on the fact that there are so many defendants, this sounds like it was either a robbery or an ...

This from a quick google search is the definition of felony murder: killing treated as a murder because, though unintended, it occurred during the commission or attempted commission of a felony, as robbery.

Depends on the reason. Murderers don’t take days off. N.O. East has been producing them at pre-pandemic rates.

I have to agree with the original top 3 at one time, Houston fans have been involved in verbal altercations in just about every visit to Yulman.
