Re: Tulane not alone in attendance woes

Perhaps the benevolent Kim Jong-un can provide DPRK "cheerleaders" to fill in the gaping voids on the east side of the stadium.
Would he stand accused Kimchi-Baggery?

Re: Tulane not alone in attendance woes

Winwave is correct. As a sports fan in general I like to attend sports events when possible. I usually attend St Paul’s high school football games on Friday nights. The stadium is perfect for high school and is less than 2 minutes from my house. Tickets are $8 and you can sit anywhere and have a gr...

Re: Signing Day Thread 2018

The number 1 ranked player in the country (Rivals), a 6"5" Pro-Style Qb has chosen Clemson? WTF? Who does that? DeShaun Watson did. He was the #1 ranked QB in college football, by a good margin, his last two years at Clemson. Watson would have been NFL rookie of the year by a HUGE margin ...

Re: Junior Diaz Gone

Since 11:10 AM CST, the top three threads on this site are referencing players who are not part of Tulane Athletics (1 recently, 1 for a long time and 1 never). Isn't there something better to discuss? To be fair, 2/3 are either directly or indirectly related to how good Tulane will be in 2013. Dia...

Re: Junior Diaz Gone

If he's considering the NFL as an option, transferring to a pro scheme offense for his 5th year is a very smart move.
Good luck Junior. I wish you nothing but the best!

Who do you consider our peer schools? My guess is, there isn't another school in the AAC other than UCF that's had a football NC, ever. So they're not really in a position to laugh, are they? Maybe Navy has. I think SMU went undefeated, but they were on "probation'... They list as having 3 nat...

Re: Football Recruiting 2019 and beyond

All but two of the plays on John Rhys Plumlee's highlight reel were outside zone reads. He looks like an outstanding passer who can run when needed. Isn't Oak Grove the school where Brett Favre volunteers?

Re: Big XII Expansion

The gap between the AAC and Pac 12 isn't all that large. The gap between the AAC and the rest of the G5 is huge. You get the big money when people care about watching your games on TV. On a typical football Saturday there are between 4 and 8 games to choose from in most homes. Why would someone wan...

Re: Lindsey Scott commits to LSU now transferring to EMCC

If Scott comes to Tulane I'd Be surprised if he didn't take the starting job from Banks when it's all said and done. Maybe not by opening week but at some point in the season If he's better, and knows the offense as well as Banks does at the time, then it's a good problem to have. But Banks got a l...

If Troy Dannen starts interviewing with other schools it's time to worry. Willie Fritz is a very good head football coach who can, I think, be too loyal to his staff.

LSU would love it for Les to get the Tennessee job. They’d be off the hook for close to $8 milllion of his buyout. So whatever Tennessee pays Les, LSU will deduct from their payment to him. That is one hell of a good way for Les Miles to attract a quality staff. Allocate several hundred thousand to...
