I’m talking from a program standpoint. Recruiting, players on the same page, no more internal strife, etc.

Chain, is it safe to stay that Green Wave baseball has stabilized, perhaps "weathered the storm" so to speak?

Re: Women's Golf # 9 in the Country

The recruiting has fallen way off under this coach. Plus last season a Tulane alum was hired as top assistant, and lasted one season, so something maybe going on. not that difficult to put a women's golf team on the map...just go to Europe and Asia and sign some players !!

Re: COACH WF BUZZ

I'd think Kansas would be interested - they might see the option as a path to respectability; they also recruit NOLA very well right now and might see a natural bridge. Football ops is a must; as are raises across the board and increased recruiting budget. But, as always, it's how you replace that i...

Re: Lindsey Scott commits to LSU now transferring to EMCC

Scott would fit with most SEC offenses; the only ones he really wouldn't fit with are LSU and Alabama.
He'd be nice here. He'd be, what, a sophomore, sit for a year, and then take over for 2.

Re: Tulane destroys the Hurricane- 62-28

By the way, did you notice just how deep we went on the bench? PJ Hurst got QB time, Miles Strickland, Andrew Zuckerman and even Jared Bertrand got rushing carries. If we had stuck with our starters the whole game, we would have been in the 70's easy. Not only that- they ate up most of the last 5 m...

Re: Tulsa Game Thread

We'll be Tulsa's third option or optionish team in a row they see, so yards may not come that easily.
Still, they are no good. They, and the 2 after that, need to be Ws.

Re: 2017 Volleyball

We're a young team that will get better.
The pre-conference slate was really weak (never helps a thing), so the record was inflated.

Re: Tanner Lee

That first pick 6 was insane. Like the CB knew the play before it was called. Really hard to blame that on the QB the CB just gambled and jumped the route . . Nothing to lose in that part of the field. See Tulane v Memphis 2014: first play of the game. Seems to be a pattern. He stared down receiver...

Well the program is obviously in great hands and the trend is up. It did seem to me, however, that the pre-conference schedule was a tad light. Oklahoma is a nice name to beat, but they aren't very good. Didn't play many road games either. Hopefully we'll do well in league play. Doc...c'mon any win...

Re: Navy 23 - Tulane 21

We do lose a lot on defense next year; but a lot of young guys are in the rotation. A true frosh was our 2nd leading tackler yesterday. Cam Sample had more tackles than Washington and Aruna combined. We lost our 2 best defenders from last season (or at least 2 of the best 3) and we aren't missing a ...

I honestly don't know how anyone could watch that Grambling team and conclude they were solid or at all well-prepared to play in this game. They committed a delay of game penalty on the FIRST play from scrimmage for their entire season. Yes, I remember when a Toledo team did that against Tulsa on t...

Really, they were physically overmatched from start to finish and this was never a game.

As it figured to be, despite the protestations of the lingering "I was right" crowd.
OL still not top-shelf; and the kicking (shudder).

Re: 3 weeks away and....

I'm on 5 for this season; beat Navy and it could be 6 or 7.
But my early forecast for next season is 10 wins. That's our breakout. I hope we have at least a mini-breakout this season, though.

Hardly a big loss. We have other, and better, backs on the radar anyway. If we don't lose a few, we aren't recruiting high enough.
