Re: Miami(OH.) Game Thread

Gotta take care of business! Absolutely inexcusable if we don't finish 10-2 or higher OOC. Our rpi is up to 84 right now. ESPN bpi currently at 189. Kenpom has us at 139. Miami rpi is 215, bpi is 279, kenpom is 284. Miami body of work: @Fordham (150 rpi) 55-54 W Wright St (310 rpi) 73-67 W LIU-Broo...

Re: Wonder What They're Saying Now

Hypothetical: If we score 5 more points against Navy/Cincy and take care of FIU, with only losses to OU/USF/Memphis, are we included in the top 25?

I know it's fairly pointless but I would assume hell yes, but there's USF outside the CFB top 25...

Re: Wonder What They're Saying Now

I'd argue it's worse having to learn to love a program with the mess of Dickson/Toledo/CJ/Conroy in charge. 8 years committed to watching losses. Ah you think darkness is your ally? You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then...

Re: Wonder What They're Saying Now

Can we just have a reasonable reaction? Somewhere in between doom and gloom and Tulane could compete in SEC?

For the first time in the 8 years I've been a fan fb and bball have some consistency and vision. I'm enjoying it!

Cause for concern: we're up a ton and still putting up pretty terrible outside shots, not able to work the ball inside at all. A little too reminiscent of last year :/

Re: Colorado State Game Thread

I've never seen a worse shooting performance than has been put on by CoSt. I'm embarrassed to watch. Their fans must be throwing bricks at the TV Yup. I was hoping this game would tell us about our team but it's hard to tell with CSU playing so poorly. Very happy to see us put away a bad team, not ...

Re: Colorado State Game Thread

Thanks for the breakdown. I guess I just assumed that the LIU, FSU, and Miami games were part of this, instead of just regular season games. Weird.

Anyway, CSU is by far the biggest game of OOC in my opinion. The only true test that isn't a pile of turds or pile of gold. Excited to watch this one!

Re: Colorado State Game Thread

Does anyone understand the format of this "tournament"? We only play two games this week in Jamaica. But already played Brooklyn and will play Miami (oh) and FSU, not in Jamaica later in the season. Leaving Hartford the only team we don't play.

Will there be some sort of a championship?

Nice to win a game we're supposed to win. Fritz just earned another year. yes lets give another year to a coach who blew a 10 point 4th quarter lead to a 2-7 team. he is lucky to escape with a win. glad we won but geez it should have not been that close. Not saying he necessarilly deserves it. We s...

Re: Tulane crushed by Memphis 56-26

It's a little soon to analyze the recruiting rankings since none of those players have signed the dotted line yet, and there are still a few opportunities remaining for something to occur that may negatively affect those commitments, such as either certain P5s swooping in or for Tulane to embarrass...

Re: Tulane kicks LSU's ass 84-74

Thanks for the summaries. Wonder if there are video highlights anywhere? The whole season is gonna come down to an improvment in the inside game. Last year I'd guess we won about 15% of the offensive rebounds and only like 20% of our points came inside the paint. To win conference games we're gonna ...

Re: Tulane crushed by Memphis 56-26

To a certain extent, both sides are correct. On one hand, Tulane would not have the current recruits committed to it right now if it were in CUSA, and, on the other hand, most, if not all, of the CUSA programs could not defend Fritz's offense even if Fritz had to deal with lesser recruits. The latt...
