Re: ULL Game Thread

Does U=La=La benefit more from playing us than we do them? Maybe. But that depends on whether you want to value selling out Yulman and count that in our favor. I'd much rather play them than some other OOC opponent that will put 8,000 in the stadium TOTAL.

Re: Ed Daniels article

WOW!

I'm surprised that Ed is not at all critical of the offense, particularly the downright refusal of our offense to work the perimeter and make the opponent cover sideline to sideline as opposed to just between the hash marks.

Re: Sun Belt Champion Headed to New Orleans Bowl

I wouldn't want to go to the New Orleans bowl four years in a row. That would signify no growth or improvement. Our sites should be set higher. We'd take it this year as making a bowl game is the first step.

Re: WBB 2018-19 Season thread

I’m happy for Lisa. I’d love to see her get us back to the NCAA’s. I saw the Loyola and LSU games. I really like the freshman class that was brought in. As others have mentioned Gutierrez is the real deal. +1 I'm not one of those that thinks Lisa Stockton is collecting a paycheck. She's a good coac...

Re: Tulane Beats South Dakota St. 84-80

Thanks for the head's up DfromCT. Do you know if HISB is now calling DC home or Lafayette? I haven't spoken to Aaron W in a while, but last I checked, they called New Orleans home. He's from the Gulf coast. Not sure where the rest of the band lives. If you recall, they made a stop between gigs to v...

Re: Tulane Beats South Dakota St. 84-80

Clearly, I missed the "tough" option for the mis-spell. And it makes total sense if we got tough down the stretch to lose a lead late but still come back and win. Not something we see often from our "front porch" sports.

Re: How Many Regular Season Games Will Tulane Win?

I read that Willie Fritz said Jonathan has a chance to play on Sunday and a strong arm. I never read that he said he would be a high draft pick. I might have missed it somewhere but those are two totally different statements from a HC. And I don't buy the first, so I certainly don't agree with the s...

I envy you guys that had the time to watch! What is "tought", though? I guess I need to be "taught" that word or maybe SDSU "taut" Tulane in the second half.

Re: How Many Regular Season Games Will Tulane Win?

I had us struggle early, including losses to Wake Forest and UAB. I didn't predict the USF win, but thought we'd beat SMU and get on a roll, pulling off an upset over Houston ultimately ending at 7-5. So much for my crystal ball. Beat Navy. Make the WeedEater Bowl or whatever insignificant bowl game...

Just so everyone understands, I'm NOT looking for the quick fix like we've had in the past. I'm tired of that. Seasons like 2013, 2002, even 1997-98 were fool's gold, not built on a foundation designed for continued success. I'd rather it take a year or two longer, but actually be a solid enough pr...

Re: Sun Belt Champion Headed to New Orleans Bowl

Your response has little to do with the post of mine you qouted. Well, ok, it addresses one issue, but the main point in my post you quoted was whether or not a Sun Belt Champion could make a NY6 bowl or the playoff. I wasn't clear about UCF's chances to make it into the ESPN Invitational; Their cha...

For the sake of the program, and his job after 2019, he needs to fire the OC and get a new one. We're all tired, even the alumni that DO care but don't post here, of this BS offense.

Sorry, Robert but I disagree. IF (and that's a huge IF) an undefeated Sun Belt Conference champion gave Alabama it's only loss, and had another pelt on it's belt, like, say a win over Clemson, they'd get into the ESPN Invitational and play for the MNC ahead of a 1 loss AAC champion.

Another snooze of a story! Just like the Ula-La womens basketball thread, why should we care? No need to be so dismissive of ULL women's basketball.

Re: Sun Belt Champion Headed to New Orleans Bowl

I am still pissed about us losing the ULL in the NOLA Bowl. The 2013 NOLA bowl results were vacated due to major NCAA violations committed by ULALA which included ACT fraud. That doesn't mean we won. It also doesn't erase one of the worst Pick 6's ever thrown by a Montana, whom set the tone for our...

The recruiting advantage that UH has is that the Houston area has an incredible number of high end recruits.
