Re: Saints are true partners of TU football?

I’ll add Saints owner Gayle Benson is on the Tulane Board. Drafting or signing FA Tulane guys is not related to being a partner. Ryan Griffin had a nice FA gig with the Saints for awhile. Kinda my point. It seems that through the years the Saints office and coaches have had the local press to get t...

Saints are true partners of TU football?

Since Tulane and the Saints have the only official sharing relationship of facilities and such between a pro and college team in any city; why is there then not more interest from the Saints office in Tulane players come draft time? Legends were on the team once back in the day but now nothing. How ...

Re: Melvin Frazier now projected 1st round pick

We still don't really know if Frazier is playing 100% from his injury.
I would have picked Melvin for 1st team AAC over Gray (though I love Gray's style of play too).

Re: Matt Forte

I always thought of Brister as a journeyman QB, but looking at his stats, he had longevity. Funny thing: His total passing yardage in the NFL is almost identical to Forte's yards from scrimmage. Heck, he was a jouneyman before he even got to the NFL; signed with Alabama in football but then signed ...

Re: Cincy Wipes Out The Wave 78-49

This league and TU is about the time and date of match ups as Wichita State beat Cincy twice and TU played one of their best all -around games against WS losing by 6-7 points. I do think when all is said and done though that the Bearcats will be the champs of AAC and get to go far into the NCAA tour...

It was Galic on the box out. To me the question on the last inbounds play was having Daniels passing it in. We only had three scholarship players in at that point. One of the WO's should have thrown it in. Thanks. Yes, Galic it was. Good BB pedigree in the family of this young man: Personal: Parent...

Re: Melvin Frazier now projected 1st round pick

It's been 20 years since a Tulane basketball player had any sort of draft buzz. Jerald Honeycutt would've been a surefire lottery pick today being a stretch 4 that can shoot 3s. He would've been a 1-and-done player. Frazier should do well in predraft camps and individual workouts. He's a great athl...
