Re: New Athletic Director

i. will defend Dannen to a degree. I liked his hires and thought each checked a box. WF was experienced and had a reputation for turning around programs. MD was an out of the box hire that immediately added some national exposure and seemingly could solve (with his name and reputation) some of the ...

We need to stop flying that damn P6 flag until we play like we even deserve to be part of it, if there really is anything to be a part of.
Let Central Florida fly it.
We should worry about beating CUSA level teams first

Re: New Athletic Director

I thought things would be different when Dickson and Cowen left, and some things have changed unfortunately the losing culture continues. Dannen has not done a good job. Plain and simple

Re: Wave beats the Wave Again as UAB wins 31-24

Tulane would never consider Art Briles but until recently we could have had his son Kendal Briles as our OC. After last season Kendal left FAU for Houston so now we have no chance of getting him. What is the story on Rich Rod? Arizona fired him last season after he was accused of sexual harassment....

It's a nice pipedream to think we're going to change the offense or the offensive coordinator in the middle of the season. It's just not going to happen.
I don’t think anyone is expecting that. Just suggesting potential moves in the offseason

I believe Rich Rod said Arizona would be his last job, but I’m sure he thought it would be a longer and more successful tenure.

Re: UAB GameDay Thread

It isn’t the coaching. Can’t get the players due to academics. Recruits don’t give a damn about academics and Tulane actually thinks it helps in recruiting, time to seriously think about giving up on athletics. They are an embarrassment to the University as a whole. Never thought I would ever see t...

No, I don’t consider bringing back Angry Wave a significant accomplishment although Troy sure likes to tweet a lot about it. Soon after Dan...

Re: Nicholls St. Game Thread

What I'm saying is who has been consistent behind our offensive lines. Banks is by far the most talented QB we've had recently and his athletic ability is reminiscent of TJ in that he gives our team a chance to win. Again, the throws I’m talking about had nothing to do with poor protection. They we...

How about the perfectly thrown ball in the first half that should have been a TD but Encalade dropped. Again he didn't have his best night but the offensive line issues contribute mightily to that. If you don't think playing behind this line has cumulative effects on our QB's then I can't help you....

Re: Nicholls St. Game Thread

Yes b/c every throw every QB ever made was perfect. He was why we had a chance to win the game. Our HC has focused his talk all week on how the line needs to improve. That's where the real problem is. 3 throws of 14 in the 1st half were downright terrible. That’s not going to be good enough . He wa...

Re: Nicholls St. Game Thread

Good luck being good behind that line. He made several awful throws that had nothing to do with the line. The 2nd throw of the game on a slant route. A 3rd down in the 1st quarter on another slant. Another 3rd down pass IIRC to Huderson in the flat. Terrible pass that could have been picked. I’m su...

So I put on my tinfoil hat last night and came up with a strange theory. Did signing McMilan have any effect on Banks? Some people get uncomfortable with competition. He just looked pretty bad despite having another year to learn the offense and after playing pretty well at the end of last year. Yo...

Re: Wave beats the Wave ,loses to Wake Forest in OT 23-17

We couldn’t run the ball because our Offensive Line in the first half couldn’t block anyone. As for Banks on the read option, am I the only one who watches this offense and thinks the coordinator precalls what read he is going to make. He is either the worst read option qb ever and is making the wr...
