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 ...

Re: Comings and Goings

I had high hopes for Scott. He had a lot of nice offers and we stole him late from USF. Also amazing name.

Re: 2018 Schedule CFN preview's

Man I've looking at the UAB game pretty nervously because they won 8 games in year 1! Didn't realize their schedule was so damn bad!! It seems they played much better at home however, pulling out many close games.

If we wanna go bowling we gotta win UAB

Always tough to lose a lineman. Was he expected to start/play? Anyone know what our O-line looked like in the spring game?

Re: QB preseason Rankings

Very fair. I could see Banks taking over games and shredding defenses this year!

Surprised that the unit ranked out at 5. Seems like we would fall apart if Banks got injured

Cincy is being linked with Joe Burrow, former 4star leaving Ohio State. Other favorite is LSU. I know USF, Houston, ...

Just for $hits and giggles, I thought I'd give a shot at handicapping the schedule. Keep in mind these predictions are out the window by the 3rd of 4th week of the season. But I don't agree with the S&P analysis so I'll give it a shot. You can make fun of me at the end of the season, b/c I'm puttin...

I hope Fritz at least makes contact. I'm sure he's looking to play 2/2 of his remaining years. But it's to conceive an injury to Banks in this offense. Arizona State quarterback Blake Barnett is transferring from the program, a source confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday. Barnett will be a grad transfer a...

Re: SBNATION on The Wave

It’s hard not to at least be a little disappointed that in year 3 of Fritz, Tulane has greater than 50% chance of winning only 1 of its 12 games using one set of advanced metrics. It’s also disappointing that, in year 3, a 6-7 record would be something to truly celebrate. Granted, if Tulane has a b...

I'm glad we're getting Connor, and do think he's under-rated. Was leading scorer on one of the best Prep teams in the nation, one that only played other Prep Post Grad teams. There's higher ranked recruits coming out of Hargrave, but nobody filled the basket more than Crabtree. Now, if we can land ...

Under the new rules it appears we are at the max and can't bring anyone else this season. Yikes. Fritz seems like he's building a solid program bottom up and this should be a corner turning year.

Will be interesting to see if dannen pushes for staff changes or the status quo remains from tricky Ricky.

AAC is a damned good baseball conference and Tulane should be pushing for the title most years. Inaction is unacceptable.

Re: Melvin Frazier now projected 1st round pick

If Frazier gets anywhere near #1, even if that’s just getting drafted in the first round then Tulane needs to spend 50/100k to put fatheads of Frazier in every single high school and AAU gym in the gulf coast!
