Re: Spring Practice

The reports from Guerry Smith, which unfortunately don't all get put in The Advocate, have been positive about Banks continued development. This is the first time in college that he's played in the same system two years in a row. He has all of his primary targets back, Encalade, Mooney, Jones and C...

Re: Tulane loses to LSU 10-4

We had enough pitchers. Jewett should have found someone who could catch and paid them to do it. No excuse for how poorly prepared they were last year. I played ball up north and have several friends who also played. A lot of lesser programs in the north don;t even utilize all their scholarships an...

Re: Long Beach State Series

I'm sure the demise of Tulane baseball over the last two years has nothing to do with the ...

Re: Tulane loses 8-7 to UNO

Beginning to lose confidence in Jewitt’s ability to manage his pitchers and be a head coach at this level. I was already there last year but tried to give him the benefit of the doubt this year. Sadly, those of us who knew it was a coaching hire mistake are watching it unfold. Completely agree, ver...

Re: Wave robbed in Tulsa 91-89

I see that everyone has said it above, but I'll say it again. If Reynolds and Sehic can hit their FTs then we definitely win this game and perhaps would've won against Temple last Sunday too. This team has little margin for error. That said, the Refs were horrible. Finally, I hate frickn Tulsa more ...

I see no reason to kill any thread ever.
See "Tulane and Notre Dame" in Der Rathskeller. It may change your mind.

UH Bolsters Coaching Ranks with Briles and Clements

Actually a good hiring move for UH. They appoint Kendal Briles as O-Coordinator and Randy Clements as Run Game Coordinator and OLine Coach. First step for redemption for Briles.

Re: Tulane gets measure of revenge over SMU 73-70

Huge win for the Wave. Daniels is a real gem, glad we found him. Reynolds down-low lefty hook was a thing of beauty at least 4 or 5 times and kept us in the game during our dry streak. Frazier was Frazier, Sehic hit quality clutch free throws at the end, Cornish had some ugly looking 3pt attempts un...

Re: Tulsa Game Thread- TD gets game moved to 1:00

What a difference between the Temple game and Tulsa game. Tulane was ice cold shooting and Tulsa out hustled us for loose balls and rebounds. Cornish is a turnover liability. Why sit Paul for most of the second half when he dominated the paint on defense in the first half? We'll still make the road ...

Frazier and Reynolds played awesome as usual. Ona-Embo was outstanding. Caleb Daniels was key and Paul hit some key baskets at the...

Re: Early NSP

I'm no fan of Herman, but Mizzou were playing like real "sh*tbirds". Jawing on every play, questionable hits around the piles and general dirty play. Lock's little chicken dance move after the TD was more comical than anything else, especially since they were still losing the game. Herman shouldn't ...

Re: Early NSP

Watched the Texas Mizzou game last night. I'd never seen Lock play before and IMHO there was nothing in that game which indicated he was ready for the NFL now. Perhaps blame it on the departure of the Mizzou O-Coordinator or the NFL-like Texas defense (sarc), but I thought he was above average at be...

Glad the AAC put one on CUSA especially after the La Tech beat down of SMU. As for the game, FIU lost its Senior starting QB on the first drive with a broken collarbone. The backup FIU QB was sacked twice and threw two picks in his first 4 passing plays. FIU basically became one dimensional and limi...

Re: Fritz on verge of extension

Tulane declined a Rose Bowl invite in 1925 in order to keep their student athletes in class. That may have been Tulane's best team ever, as the only blemish was a tie to Missou, and shut outs in 6 of 10 games. They went undefeated again in 1929 and 1931, with a loss to Northwestern in 1930 preventi...
