Re: Wake's QB Suspended

First 3 games for Wake are us, Towson, and home to BC. Hopefully they can win that BC game and continue on to have a good year in the ACC. Win against Wake would be a real statement, but only if they have a decent season.

Re: AAC Attempts at Power Status

Getting to the 8-12 range would be huge. Also not getting locked into a long deal will be important. We've long heard that Facebook/Amazon/Twitter/Netflix/ETC are coming to disrupt the sports market. The way AAC becomes p6 is by figuring out what the winning horse looks like and jumping on early. Th...

AJ Lawson visiting Tulane. Number 4 player in Canada. 6'6 185 SG. Name dropped Dunleavy. Currently favored to go to South Carolina but he's still visiting us, SMU, Oregon, and Creighton. Would be massive to get him for 2018. He's a 4 star on Rivals. http://www.zagsblog.com/2018/06/10/canadian-star-a...

3. Tulane: A relatively unknown group turns into one of the most experienced in the conference, and it comes at a great time. Tulane is considered a dark horse to win the conference, and they’ve got the pieces in place up front to dominate. The anchor is right tackle John Leglue, and the Green Wave...

Re: Football Recruiting -- 2019

Pretty much the same timing as last years first recruit, Juan Monjarress on May 23. Monjarres was a big bang to start the cycle, Spears by contrast seems underwhelming. Interesting note is that Spears QB teammate is TJ Finley, 4/5 star 6'6 QB. Offers from LSU, Bama, Auburn, Georgia, etc. Expected to...

We can thank Ed Orgeron for his participation in our camp. They'll be kids coming in far and wide that otherwise would not have.

Re: Kansas fires it’s AD

This could get hairy for Tulane and Willie Fritz. Dannen gets a dream job and immediately hires Willie Fritz. Both get to go close to home and double their salaries. And Tulane has it's reputation somewhat salvaged. It goes from a dead end dumpster fire to a p5 stepping stone. Considering where we ...
