Re: Crawfest 042118

Come one come all.
Was just in town for French Quarter Fest, the world's largest collection of Louisiana music. Had a great time, despite the rain Saturday. Even found a new all-time favorite Po-Boy place, Bears in Metry.

Re: Spring Game Thread

So open the part with the best view is my point. There wasn’t a lot of staffing there. Plus you if you’re going to do it do it right. Hopefully in the future the game will be scheduled for Saturday night at 7. I agree Saturday night at 7. And it should always coincide with FQF! So you would have ha...

Re: Spring Game Thread

Myself and a former player went to sit up there last year. a Tulane football staffer told us Coach Fritz doesn't allow anyone up here. People want to be up there for the better vantage point. I can understand that, but I can also understand not wanting to open the whole stadium for whatever reason ...

Re: Spring Game Thread

On top of that he won't let fans sit upstairs at these events. I get his not wanting to give any advantage to his opponent but with our situation with regards to not having anybody left coming to the games it seems like things need to be balanced out. I don't know if that was Willie Fritz's call or...

Anybody know the attendance? (Not counting the teams, officials, etc.)
I don't know, but I would be surprised if it was more than 200-300. There were a good number of recruits there, all wearing Angry Wave badges!

I was there, and haven't commented because I just got back from French Quarter Festival. Great music, great food and a great time in America's Best City. Some of my takeaways: The punting game was not good at all. WIth only the long snapper, the punter and a return man on the field, the punts were g...

Re: Basketball Recruiting -- 2017

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 s...

Re: ESPN subscriber collapse

What if ESPN went bankrupt and out of business? What would happen to all the contracts they have, both the big $$ ones and the lesser ones, like with the AAC, CUSA, etc.? The traditional networks already have a good portion of their programming blocked off. There's a glut of content thrown into the ...

Re: 13 Baby !!!!

The crazy thing is they all were good shots until the slope took over. They might have been well hit, but they weren't good shots! Closing the club face, hitting down less on the ball, or as golfnut suggests, taking an extra club and choking down a little are three different ways to put less spin o...

Jake Rogers had a great 2017, throwing out 46% of base stealers, hitting .261 with 25 doubles, 18 HRs and 70 RBI's at two levels of A-ball, including the prestigious Carolina league. I didn't find an update, but I believe he was targeted to start the season at AA Erie. He has a few very talented cat...

Although they play an incredible OOC schedule, the lack of competition in the AAC hurts UConn. As soon as Notre Dame made it to the Final Four most Huskies fans feared them.
