Re: WBB ULL falls to Dillard University 72-69

Tulane already offers women's beach volleyball. And softball is no good if you can't play it on campus.

Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

No, wave97, I'm not joking. I'm saying NEITHER one's career is more important than the other. And I agree, get rid of the 3 yrs from high school rule would eliminate that.

If you're pulling mine, you're wasting your time. The only Cajun women's sport I give half a shit about is softball.

So basically, you're a Cajun fan only when they win?

Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

Something else we should consider. Fritz may not be the coach to take us to the top, but I still think he's the right person to build our foundation. CJ built nothing. He got us a winning season, but it was all smoke and mirrors, with no way to sustain. Yes, our offense is not what we'd all like, bu...

Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

Looking at Rivals recruiting site, it should have been no surprise why Houston, Cinci & UCF are that much better than us. Houston has finished 7th, 1st & 6th over the last 3 years with (1) 5 star and (3) 4 star recruits. Cinci has finished 1st, 7th & 2nd with (2) 4 star recruits. UCF has finished 3...

Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

I saw the same thing, Engineer. We never tried to get outside. Maybe that had something to do with the speed of Houston's defense, I don't know. I know they looked a lot faster than us. But at least some motion to confuse the defense would be nice. Or at least to make them have to think for a second.

The short week caused a bunch of injuries on both sides. It’s going to hurt both teams going forward. Imagine UH has now lost both its best player on offense and defense. Leave the Thursday night football to high schools.
Any word on the status of Langham and Hall?

Re: BOWL PROJECTIONS

The NY6 game goes to the highest ranked G5 champ, so, even if UCF was the highest ranked G5, it wouldn’t get that spot if It wasn’t the AAC champ. I just looked it up. That is correct. Also, all the conf champs of P5s that don't make the CFP are guaranteed a spot in NY6. Only team other than UCF th...

Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

Remarkably poor performance when you consider who wasn't playing for Houston. Our defense has had a lot of success in disguising their intentions behind a man-to-man ruse. The combination of Kendal Briles schemes, super high tempo, and a highly mobile QB laid waste to us. Ed Oliver can be assured t...

Ruse is running the offense Fritz wants him to run.

Nothing about the other three wins should really be called nice but wins they were. I have...

The American Conference has 7 bowl tie-ins. We currently have 6 teams already bowl eligible with SMU and Tulane at 5-5. If it gets to a choice between SMU and Tulane both at 6-6, I would think SMU would be chosen because they beat us. Imagine finally getting bowl eligible and not having anywhere to...

The CFP as it currently exists is a bigger joke than the BCS. Think about this as a scenario: If UCF reaches the championship game, they'll have won 24 games in a row. And yet, if they lose in the AAC CG, there's a chance the ONE G5 NY6 bowl game bid could go to Utah State. There's something f'd up ...

I honestly can't even think or talk about this until after Homecoming. This next game vs. ECU has the classic Tulane disappointment / letdown setup. And we all know what has happened in the past.

1) Birmingham--$1.6M 2) Tampa (gasparilla)--$1M 3) Boca--$900k 4) Cure--$751k 5) Frisco--$750k it ain't about the "gross" ..it's about the "net" Then Birmingham even more so, as the travel expenses would be less. Probably hotel and meal costs are lower as well.. Also the easiest for fans to get to.

They may score a lot, but for a team with a player like Ed Oliver on the line, they don't seem to play a lot of defense. I realize he's missed the last three games, but still. As for our defense, you have to admit we've stepped up. We're playing in a league that scores points in bunches, yet the las...
