Re: Revised 2017 American football schedules

UMass is the loser in all of this. Unless I'm reading it wrong, they lose a game this year, so the AAC can have their full conference slate. I think UMass is lobbying to get invited into the conference. It would be great for UConn to have UMass in the conference. They were once serious rivals in th...

Re: Navy 23 - Tulane 21

Fritz wants to win now. He ain't a young guy. He knew exactly what he was getting into. Why did he want the job? There are less than 130 FBS HC jobs. A couple of years ago and in his early fifties, he was looking at best at being a successful FCS coach capping a career in the minors, literally. Mea...

Re: Navy 23 - Tulane 21

I agree with Steve and I don't see what most of you are seeing. We are more competitive but I don't see how we are supposed to win with this offense. Throwing it on the qb getting hurt is a cop out bc we didn't move the ball when he was In there. Things I saw that make me think nothing has changed:...

The line has moved from 14 to 10.

I've got us +14 and on the money line. I really believe we come out of this with a win. Hope I'...

Re: Winning Does

Not at all. To be successful against these type of teams means going to another level of mental discipline. I think that's tough for a team to do. I didn't like it when we scheduled two in the same season and even less when the games were put so close together. It was just a few seasons ago when ma...

Exactly. For those grassy knoll types, he also pays $10/mo to post much more frequently to Guerry Smith's site than he does on YOGWF.

He is an informed observer. Always worth reading and as Win notes, he wears green-colored glasses.

Can't you buy great seats on the short side of the stadium without paying a seat license fee? We did in 2014. If you are referring to the west (press box) side, I sit in 121 and pay a $500 donation.

Re: Benson-LSU End Game

I think Tulane needs a new rival. We haven't played LSU in forever. We don't have room for them until five years from now. It's just not happening on that front. We'd make room. It's kinda weird that Tulane is one of the few teams in CFB that doesn't really have a clear mutual rival. LSU decided th...

In a meaningful way, this will be a good realtime measure of where WF and the team are today quality wise. You don't often see experienced coaches lay markers down before a game.

Re: New facilities announcement

How much more would it cost to cover the field? FWIW: More than Tulane is paying right now. Fritz's view specifically is that he has a top class IPF on Airline Highway which a Tulane board member gives him use of for free. He'd rather spend the money on a performance center. In this case what matte...

Well, Fritz's one bad year wouldn't remove him completely from the radar for a consistently low performing P5 program that has an AD willing to do whatever it can -within the rules- to win (i.e. potentially hire a coach that will use an offense that will likely be unpopular with the fans). As for T...
