Re: Tulane Wins Game 2 against the Tiggers

There you have it. I still feel strongly that Dannen is a HUGE step up from his predecessor, but at the same time he needs to get the message that exposure is like advertising. Even if we got ZERO money from the TV coverage, it's free exposure, which our programs so desperately need. We might have m...

Re: Tulane Wins Game 2 against the Tiggers

LSU's Reveille makes no mention of our Wednesday night 10 to 9 win over the Tiggers. Positively LSU, no class act from A to Z. Even the loss of a baseball game to Louisiana's premier university must be denied. http://www.lsunow.com/daily/sports/ Can you blame a top 25 team for not bringing up a mid...

Re: SBNATION on The Wave

I agree that it’s not gospel, but that analysis has been pretty close over the last couple of seasons, as it predicted 5-7 for 2017 (accurate) and 3-8 in 2016 (off by 1 win). Hopefully, it will be off by 1 win again with its 5-7 prediction for 2018, but it’s hard to feel the same level of enthusias...

Re: SBNATION on The Wave

UAB and Wake should tell us what kind of team/season we'll have. Our conference play is much more difficult than OOC. Here's our schedule sorted by S&P win probability: Nicholls State 84% East Caroline 74% @Tulsa 50% Navy 48% SMU 43% @UAB 41% @Cinxinnati 38% Memphis 30% @Houston 26% Wake Forest 25%...

This one is particularly dated, as it pre-dates Junior Diaz transferring. Or it's just lousy reporting.

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 ...

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...

Re: Spring Game Thread

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...

They rescheduled the Spring game for Friday night at 7:30 due to the weather.

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...

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...
