Re: Grad Transfer Christian Montano-OL

I had heard that Brown IS the community college of the Ivy League. I have no earthly idea as to the legitimacy of that statement. I know Chris Berman has always downplayed its perception of prestige. Brown is the 14th ranked National University by USN&WR. That speaks for itself. Berman couldn't SNI...

Re: Tyler Judson

Another late recruiting surge by Fritz and his staff. I think Fritz has this early signing date thing figured out quite well—definitely puts pressure on recruits who are sitting on the fence. Only 25 slots—get in now or don’t get in at all. sorta like the lifeboats on the Titanic !!!! Aw yes, the T...

Brown the best university in the country . Wonder why he did not commit to Mempbis or Houston ....
Another of your series of BRILLIANT posts. Brown is a VERY VERY GOOD University, but it's not the best in the country. I wonder what community college you failed out of?

Re: New AAC TV deal

For the record UCF was winless FOUR seasons ago (when their coach quit coaching). Three seasons ago, they were 6=7, their first year under Scott Frost. They've won 25 in a row since. Why do you post here when your heart is torn between Storrs and Orlando ? Get off the pot .... I'm a Tulane graduate...

Re: 2018 Cure Bowl ULL Score Prediction Thread

Both teams are good at running the football, and U-La-La had more success passing the ball throughout the year. But McMillan made defenses pay for stacking the box, which U-La-La will have to do or risk Tulane ripping them on the ground. I also think we see a new wrinkle or two out of the offense wi...

I'm surprised he's still there.
It wouldn't surprise me if he's not there come early January. There's still turnover in the HC ranks that we are not yet aware of.

They get the stability of the conference. That was made clear in the articles. But again the most important thing is Aresco's response. I agree that Aresco's response would/should put an end to this conversation. But there's also the possibility going forward that EVERY D1 team ends up getting thei...

That again says that all schools are being asked to sign GOR's. Let me ask: What benefit does ...

First I'd caution that the article doesn't say what D has implied it says. He has said if you read it closely Tulane is not being asked to sign a GOR. He needs to post the portion that gives him that impression . It appeared to me that they want all to sign it so there is stability to the contract....

Re: New AAC TV deal

Also, the AAC made a mistake by adding Tulsa and ECU, as those programs were added solely for their on the field performance - which is something that should never be done - and look how that has turned out for the conference. Those two slots are extremely valuable and will come back to haunt the c...
