Re: Let's Play "Did Ya' Know "

Texans? Not the ones in Houston, but the ones in Dallas? They played in the AFL for 3 seasons, before moving to Kansas City and becoming the Chiefs.

Re: Let's Play "Did Ya' Know "

Dont forget that the Astros started as the Houston Colt.45s in 1962. Changed the name when the Astrodome was built.

Re: The Re: CFN's week 6 Rankings & Bowl Projections

The AAC West is bad, but I'm still not confident that Tulane can capitalize on that. Navy, SMU, and Tulsa -should- all be wins given their poor performances so far, but, of course, that was said about UAB. Even if Tulane won those games, it still would not be a "good" team. Don't miss the bigger pi...

Re: Potential head football coach candidates search

Shades of 1978 and Larry Smith. Six games into season three, he was 2-4, coming off of a 2-9 and 3-8 seasons, and we were hearing the exact same things. The faculty was pushing to drop football completely. He finished the season 4-7, for a three year record of 9-24. And then 1979 happened. We NEED a...

I won't get a chance to see or listen to the game tomorrow. My flight to Denver leaves at 10:30am. Here's hoping I arrive to find out we're 3-3.

Cincinnati 23

Re: Line Opens Cincinnati 7.5 pts. > Tulane

Cincy playing for a bowl bid this weekend. I would think we’ll get their best. If we are going to be a bowl team we need to win this type of game. I would think their bigger incentive is its homecoming weekend. I mean, they only need to go 1-6 in their last 7 to make a bowl .I hardly see a sense of...

Re: Seat Licenses/Priority Seating Charge

I would have to think that a good number of people with season tickets in multiple sports are on this board. Is there ANYONE who can say they're the "average priority seating ticket holder" that's actually going to save the $1000? Anyone?

No they didn't. Banks was hurt but don't let facts get in the way of your agenda. Banks had a cramp, road the stationary bike a few minutes and was ready to return to the game. He through his fit because he didn’t go back in after he was fine. I suspect Banks will start against Cincy, he’ll either ...

Re: Tulane Tames the Tigers 40-24

If we can beat a much improved Cincinati team, I think we have a shot at getting a bowl this season. Current projections still have us at 6-6 without beating Cincy. Wins at home vs SMU, ECU and Navy, and a win @Tulsa gets us to 6-6. A win over a much improved Cincinnati team would give us a cushion...

Re: Ohio St. Crushes the ripple 49-6

For those of you that were so gloom and doom after the Ohio State game: with the win over Memphis, Massey is still projecting us to go 6-6 for the season, which would give us a bowl game. They project home wins against SMU, ECU and Navy, and a road win @Tulsa. And they even have us with a 42% chance...

SEVENTEEN STRAIGHT RUNS TO END THE GAME. That's interesting. So before that the numbers were balanced one would have to admit.
39-21 before the TD pass by McMillian. Not sure how many of those runs may have been drop backs by Banks that turned into runs, so yes, pretty balanced.

One thing to remember, we had a LOT of drops tonight that were good throws. McMillan may win the job eventually but I dont think tonight was not the night. Did he throw another pass all night? Banks played a good game and made good decisions. The commentators made some dumb comments about the rpo w...

Massive win. We can still salvage the season. Keep Millan at QB!!!! What a joke. Banks won this game. That's an exaggeration. It was 17-14 before Banks went out. He played overall, but the defense made big plays in the second half to win the game. McMillian came in for one play and threw a 3 yard p...

8 sacks by D and Hernderson (no;, 1 rush gainer in nation with 12;2 is held to 51 total yards on 10 or so carries).
He actually only carried 7 times. After that first run, he had 6 carries for 4 yards. Well done by the D.

Obviously we knew they were far more talented, but I'd put them one notch below the team upriver when it comes to be classless. I mean, 35-6 with 2 minutes left in the half, and you're going to call time outs to try and get the ball back again? And that OL hit on Kennedy was a cheap shot. Not the or...
