And other assorted hackneyed comments post them here so there aren't 50 threads with the same crap. Pro-tip your complainant is not novel or innovative and not deserving of a new thread. I've created a handy place for those that need to express themselves.

How’s the over on the wins total looking?


You ever realize that you spend more time complaining about people complaining about Jewett than anyone actually spends complaining about Jewett?

You would think the subject line would be a violation of yogi rules. Someone lock this thread.

As it's plainly tongue in cheek it's not plainly a violation of anything.

The spirit of it is. Just a terrible subject header.

And I don’t hate baseball and I certainly don’t hate Jewett. I think most of the baseball die hards would say the same. What we hate is losing and another year of 0-3 from the big three has everybody down.

Except he's right, like 9 of the 11 threads below this one either start as baseball coach bashing or quickly decline into it.

But this thread isn’t exactly helping.
If he doesn’t want to read the complaints he doesn’t have to.

I disagree. I’ve seen too many post over the years deleted and locked that were “plainly tounge in cheek.” The title of this thread is tasteless and just sucks. The word hate is uncalled for and as I said earlier, it is not in line with the spirit of the board rules. Besides football, the emotion or bashing as you put it really indicates how many people actually care about Tulane baseball. You wouldn’t see this at a lot of schools where baseball is a non factor. Our fans are disappointed and rightfully so. But “hate” and “sucks” in the subject line is pathetic.

It is not tongue in cheek. I'd really like these idiots who just start threads because of their new take on baseball this season to just post in the same place. Hopefully it turns into a Mexican stand off, where everyone pulls the trigger.

No way in hell this team is better than last years, and that is a very low bar to top.

I hope this thread provides a Safe Space for those who aren't actually primarily concerned with the '18 baseball season, but insist on using it as a way to indulge in the following...
1) should've hired Andy or Riser and live a woulda coulda shoulda world
2) Tulane has restrictions and that means the administration doesn't really care or try
3) captain hindsights who feel better about themselves when they identify and trumpet the shortcomings of others.

Poseidon, I agree. Your first point is old news. The second point is always ongoing. The third point is the result of losing which unfortunately has a trickle down effect that needs to end. We all want to win and that should be the goal. The subject line invites the things you mention. I just hope the team plays well this weekend. Winning two out of three would be a real confidence booster.
