Re: Football Recruiting 2018

We'll be young on defense but very experienced on offense. You're right, good point. Losing our center to graduation with a year eligibility hurts that line, but the unit has been together for a lot of games. Banks will be a Senior, and our WR's will have another year of maturity. Hopefully the Off...

Re: Andy Cannizaro

Serious question, why would anyone care about this guy's career in anyway? Cause he was an all-american 15 years ago at Tulane? Because he's a fellow Tulanian. Because he did a lot for the University, and the baseball program as a player. And just because. I'm pretty sure you'd want your fellow alu...

Re: Fritz on verge of extension

With no announcement I’m assuming nothing got done as of yet. Does anyone know if Fritz received and signed a contract extension? If so, anyone know the terms? Start getting a little nervous when newspaper reports Fritz negotiating contract extension back in December, and nothing more is said. All ...

Re: Tulane harvests a bountiful recruiting crop for 2018

This should be merged into other 2018 football recruiting threads. It's nice to see others (in this case Underdog Dynasty) appreciate what Fritz & Co. have done. They really stepped up recruiting this time around and we should be in good shape in the coming years, though we'll be very young this...

Re: Memphis Game 2 Thread

We're the team that cannot shoot straight right now. We also still can't attack a zone defense, hence all the errant long bomb shots. We also can't get defensive rebounds because nobody on the team even attempts to block out. Lastly, we clearly prefer to play man-to-man defense, but don't have the ...

Re: Women's Golf # 9 in the Country

I guess as TPS said, bad recruiting; and/or bad evaluation and development. The coach has had a hard time keeping a 2nd assistant as well. I was out at English Turn on Saturday and got to watch some of the play. Our Booster Club cooks every year for this tournament. The field is tops in the country...

Re: Baseball Website

No matter if we fill the slot or not, we need to have someone with a pulse in the Athletics Department delegate these tasks until the position is filled. Not doing it is ignoring a basic responsibility. C'mon, Troy GET IT DONE.

And not for nothing, but the women's golf team has finished ranked higher than most other sports in the recent past. Yes, we've even had some success in the post season. Bu...

Re: Melvin Frazier now projected 1st round pick

Frazier is only going to get better by playing against better competition (the NBA). He’s going to be a better pro because he’ll be surrounded by better players on his team. His game is perfect for the NBA. His wing spam of 7’2” is incredible for a 6’6”guy. At Tulane next year he’ll get a lot guys ...

Re: Melvin Frazier now projected 1st round pick

I'm no expert. But it seems to me he got hurt on a clean play by a player that's not as big as most NBA players, fighting through a pick. Another year of growth and filling out his body to his frame would do him well. As I've said elsewhere in this thread, I think the smart route would be to NOT sig...

Re: Wright State Series

Their starter opening night put up some damned good numbers last year:

RHP Ryan Weiss, So. | 8-1, 2.13 ERA, 15 APP, 14 GS, 88.2 IP, 78 H, 21 ER, 80 K, 20 BB


That's a WHIP of 1.105, outstanding for a college pitcher.
