It would bother me less if they'd given him a green jersey.

One of my close friends passed away Tuesday morning. He was a huge Packers fan. It was in his DNA. What a cruel trick of fate that I don’t get to share this with him!!

You guys do know that Favre grew up a Tulane fan and would have signed with us if our coach at the time had not told him he would have to switch to tight end, right?

Well sure, but who was "the other guy"? Shaun King? We really don't have anyone the stature of Favre

I’m guessing the host of the show, Bruce Murray, a Tulane graduate

Correct. Maybe I was too young, but I don’t remember this:

Quote:
Bruce's broadcast career began at his alma mater, Tulane, where he was the voice of the Green Wave's basketball and football teams from 1983-1985.

I was wondering about that. Didn’t WTUL do their own game broadcasts? Maybe that?

WTUL did their own broadcasts after the return of hoops so they probably did it before. I'm guessing this means they no longer do?

A good friend of mine used to do the call in my era. He famously cursed on the air once ("famously" amongst all my friends, because he told us about it... I doubt anyone else was listening... :lol:)

I remember after hoops returned being on wwl though it might not have been the first year. During the posse days when we were ranked I can remember being in aspen during Mardi Gras week and driving up towards independence pass to gain altitude to pick up Tulane basketball night games on 870. Wish we were still on a clear channel station.

We were on WWL (and WTUL for home games!) from the return of hoops through at least the late 90s or maybe even into the 2000s. Actually, I joined this forum in 2005 and I want to say the departure from WWL was discussed here, so we may have been on WWL even that long.

The voice of Tulane Athletic events from 81-85 was Don Crockett, then from fall of 85 to when Ken Berthelot left. WWL held did Tulane Athletics from 81-88 when Bob Broadhead brought about Tiger vision. When that failed he went back to WWL and Tulane remained 2nd fiddle.

Bruce was the sports director at WTUL while in school and did games there. For a school that didn't have much of a communications program, Tulane produced some nationally prominent sports journalists in that era - Bruce, Peter Brown (ESPN Radio, Sporting News Radio, etc.) and Billy Witz (currently with New York Times).
