Cherry picking

The baseball & basketball teams seem to be landing recruits from outside the Southland. Would it be helpful for our football program to target specific prospects in other regions?

Re: Willie Fritz to Kansas

Sorry, I have no interest in Frank Wilson, with the way Fletcher Mackel wanted to shove him down our throat the last time. Frank may be the only person who would come to Tulane, and the only reason he would come is to get home so to speak...my first choice is the DC @ UT...but I am sure there are m...

Re: Next year will be worse

When you ask how the pipeline dried up, I am inclined to ask how did we get that many good ones over that 5 year period. I posted many a thread for years and years that I rated each Tulane recruiting class by their recruitment of good sized and skilled Defensive linemen. Between the days of Charlie...

Re: Potential FB coaching candidates

Don't know that we are recruiting GPA's. I haven't seen those listed when we get commitments. I know academics was the issue for a long time. It's not at this point. It is the long term losing and the pathetic excuse for D-1 facilities. All you have to do is look at the Twitter profiles of the guys...

We don't exactly have a group of dynamic recruiting personalities on this staff. Recruiting JUCO's may prove to be more of an uphill fight than high school kids.

Next year will be worse

This year we are running a three-man defensive front because we can field only three d-lineman. All three will be graduating this Spring. Ade has been playing inside, his edge rushing was a thing from last year. His absence from a seven-technique DE to a five-technique DT hasn't helped with our pass...

This staff won in Statesboro with Jeff Monken's talent. The entire staff seem like decent people incapable of persuading talented players at primary positions sign.

Re: Football Recruiting 2018

We need coaches who can walk into a living room and sell the program - warts and all. You can talk all day about Tulane academics & New Orleans culture, but in the end, you have to sell the program by being honest with recruits about Tulane Football's sh*tshow past & why/how that's changing....

Re: Tulane crushed by Memphis 56-26

If only CJ were the WR's coach on this staff. Are Slade Nagle & Jamaal Fobbs the only native Louisianans on the staff? There is way too much talent at DL & Corner in this State for our cupboard to be empty in those positions.

JV coach, JV results. 1.2 million dollars well spent But if we hired Andy Cannizaro to coach the 4th most important sport, all would be well in Greenie land. What a crock of sh*t post.

WF is not going anywhere...he is year two, with one recruiting class...the offense now in place is not the one he wants to run, but he knows how bad we are on defense and is trying to keep them off the field as much as possible...I think by year 4 we will see an offense much like he had at Sam Hous...

Re: Tulane crushed by Memphis 56-26

There seems to be a lot of loyalty & cohesion on Coach Fritz's staff. That is a good thing - until it isn't. I have no idea what Lionel Washington is doing, but I would love to see him at the helm of the defense putting his mark on tactics, scheme & recruiting skilled DB's & athletic big...

Re: Memphis GameDay Thread

The OL under Bowden was way more talented than the one we have now. It wasn’t just the scheme. Teevans was not a good coach but he did recruit some good linemen. The no huddle just wore defenses out. Tommy Bowden had the good judgment of hiring "The Emory Bellard" of the of the zone read ...

Re: FIU wins 23-10

You could hear FIU players stating that they "played their gaps" well in the post-game interviews. That puts our QB in a situation where he gets very little from the pre-snap read. Once the ball was snapped d-lineman, LB's & DB's were committed to one gap by "out-zoning" the ...

We simply don't have the offensive line for this offense to thrive. I am a believer that any offense can be successful if you have the right players. We don't have the line....yet. When you have a front seven that can "outzone" your scheme plus corners playing cover zero you can throw out...

Re: Tulane destroys the Hurricane- 62-28

By the way, did you notice just how deep we went on the bench? PJ Hurst got QB time, Miles Strickland, Andrew Zuckerman and even Jared Bertrand got rushing carries. If we had stuck with our starters the whole game, we would have been in the 70's easy. It was great that WF played them. Most of us kn...

Ade Aruna is a non-factor in an odd front. He hasn't played a two-gap technique nearly enough to execute it.
