Re: Fordham Game Thread

By far, the poorest play we've seen for the entire year yet we lead by 8 7pts at the under 8. Against a terrible Fordham team. Turned the ball over 17 times already. Just in case you didn't catch it on the broadcast, the announcers specifically mentioned that Fordham is usually in the top five in t...

Re: Fordham Game Thread

29-27 Fordham at half. We're either sitting outside trying to shoot over the zone, or when we do try to go inside, we make some careless passes. Only one foul on Tulane in the first half, though.

Re: Oh what could have been...

Seriously. People want to say some people can't be happy but then want to play gotcha. Facts fall by the side. Fact is we don't have many true freshman playing. We have Dublin who plays ok overall but gets penalties at really bad times. Sample has played and made some plays. Johnson has played a li...

Re: Baby Isla helps Wave whip Houston 20-17

You don't think there's a lot of P5s that do OK even if they only get an average hire? I think you could put CJ at an LSU and they'd win 6 games every year just due to talent.

Re: Baby Isla helps Wave whip Houston 20-17

Not to be a party pooper or anything, but its possible that there will be more bowl-eligible teams than spots. What would be the odds that an AAC team would get a slot before a 6-6 CUSA or Sunbelt team? Would hate to see us be 6-6 and be the odd man out.

Re: Baby Isla helps Wave whip Houston 20-17

Definitely good for us, that's for sure. Its the same thing every G5 program needs to deal with. If you don't replace a good hire with another good hire, you'll regress back to mediocrity. Which is why most of us are in G5s and not P5s.

Re: Baby Isla helps Wave whip Houston 20-17

Fake news! Tulane (6-6, 4-4) took the lead late in the fourth quarter after quarterback Jonathan Banks connected with receiver Terren Encalade on a 64-yard touchdown pass. I wish we were 4-4 in conference and 6-6. Did anyone notice if Glenn Cuillette walked with the Seniors? ROLL WAVE! I know I rea...

Agree with Houma. Glad I flew in flew in for this game to watch it with the real fans. Awesome high fives and emotion winning this game. Let it sink in. This is only the second time in 14 years we’ve won 5 games. I’m not sure we should count the bowl year in 2013 since we played football powers Nor...

Re: Colorado State Game Thread

Re: Tulane crushes Colorado State 80-53

2/28/77 was in Fogleman. Marquette won 63-44. We've played them 19 times, going 3-16. From what I've checked, I can't find a single game where we played them in the Dome. They're all listed as Fogleman. Games prior to the 76-77 season there was no Dome, and we haven't played games at the Dome since...

Re: Oh what could have been...

Fritz isn't bringing in better talent and than what is leaving. He needs to step up his recruiting game and hire a guy well connected to the Louisiana high schools. In his first two seasons I can't think of a freshman who has wowed me on offense or defense. People keep saying this over and over, an...

Re: Oh what could have been...

We were 4-7 in 1978, 9-2 in 1979. Infante's offense was the difference. It helped. It wasn't the only difference. And a lot of the same players won 7 games in 1980 without him. Yes he made a difference. And I've always been of the mindset that the proper thing was to keep Infante as HC when Smith l...

Re: Oh what could have been...

Infante was also OC in 1976. We were 2-9. Two years in between as a WR coach for the Giants changed him that much? And we were 7-4 (should have been 9-2) the following year without him. By the way, I just checked, we were 4-7 for 1978, not 7-4. And yes, 1979 was all about Lindy Infante. And, the te...

Re: Baby Isla helps Wave whip Houston 20-17

This is pretty much exactly what most of us expected at the beginning of the season. We'd lose one or two we expected to win, and we'd win one or two we expected to lose. Hence, 5 or 6 wins. And here we are, 5-6, with one to go. There are some that will be miserable and say, "we could be 8-3 ri...

Re: Colorado State Game Thread

Wave look good so far this year. So much deeper than a year ago. We definitely play NBA-style basketball, which is great if you have the depth and athleticism to pull it off. I think we are getting there, but we may pay big for this style against some of the better more athletic teams in conference...
