Re: Lindsey Scott commits to LSU now transferring to EMCC

I just looked at that guidance, and it says signing date, not deadline. I tend to still think that each school's policies will determine if a player is a student for the spring semester. If spring practice isn't important to a player, then he can sign any time he wants, but can't sign before Januar...

Re: 1998 National Champs!

OK, so to be fair, we only had 7 blowouts in an 11 game season. It was a hell of a fun season. I remember after the Rutgers game one of the O-Linemen was being interviewed on the radio up in the metro NYC area about the offense. He said "we know we have the other team beat when they have their...

Re: Lindsey Scott commits to LSU now transferring to EMCC

Help me guys, doesn’t the below NLI chart say for Football: (Midyear JC Transfer) initial signing date: December 20, 2017; Final signing date: January 15, 2018? Anybody know this stuff? I don’t. http://www.nationalletter.org/signingDates/future.html That’s for Midyear enrollment. He’s already gradu...

Re: 1998 National Champs!

D, if you notice, I specifically did NOT call that game a blowout win. I said, "we won two by 10, and two by 14", one of which was the Army game. I remember that game as well. But if we had played that game for 10 quarters, we still would have won, because Army was never going to stop us....

Re: 1998 National Champs!

Because it’s bush league as f**k to do so I kind of agree with drunk MsDos. Claiming a national title seems a little like claiming this was a bowl-game year. Our peer schools would probably be amused by this. I can imagine the quotes on their forums: "That's the only championship Tulane will w...

Re: Final: UCONN 67, Tulane 57

I think the coaches have a much better feel of the players abilities and who should get minutes and when they should get minutes. I don't try to think I know more than guys that have made a living in the game that I'm simply a fan of. Yes, we all have opinions, but sometimes when they come across a...

Re: 1998 National Champs!

Who do you consider our peer schools? My guess is, there isn't another school in the AAC other than UCF that's had a football NC, ever. So they're not really in a position to laugh, are they? Maybe Navy has. I think SMU went undefeated, but they were on "probation'... They list as having 3 nat...

Re: Big XII Expansion

Very simple. There will never be a P6 conference. The P5s will never agree to share revenue with a 6th conference. There might be a handful of G5 schools get assumed into a P5 conference if the money makes sense to a particular conference such as Florida schools in AAC moving into Big 12. But that ...

Re: Big XII Expansion

I will add this 5 minute analysis as well: ESPN listed the top NCAA 20 games of 2017. Yes, 4 were under 50 points. 4 Were 51-60 points. 2 Were 61-70 points. 1 was 71-80 points and SEVEN (7) of the 20 were over 80 points. The one game in the 70's happened to be a pretty B1G rivalry: Ohio State 39, Pe...

The gap between the AAC and Pac 12 isn't all that large. The gap between the AAC and the rest of the G5 is huge. You get the big money when people care about watching your games on TV.

I also don't think last year's pre-conference season was much tougher than this year's.

Re: Memphis Beats Tulane 96-89

As far as RPI that's true but last nights hurt the psyche more as it raises concerns about what we can really accomplish this season going forward. I think that's a fans perspective and the loss had little or no affect on the teams' psyche. Again, we're both speculating on what's going on in other ...

Yet you still cannot deny that we've almost doubled the win total from a year ago full season at the mid point of the current season.
