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 ...

Re: Temple Game Thread

Roll Damn Wave! We tuned in with low expectations and watched a great coached and well played game. If I recall, I don't believe Tulane trailed at any point in the game. 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 ...

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...

Re: Temple over F.I.U.

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...

Re: Post season analysis

Comparing Fritz and Frost is ridiculous. UCF has no admissions standards. This is as factual a statement as can be made. UCF can literally bring in "whatever" meets their needs on the football field and know that academics and culture will not be a problem. If we are at the minimum like e...

Re: Wave over Miami(OH.) 80-59 go to 5-0

Great to see Hoops back from the dead. The game was played the day before a holiday which could cut down on crowd size but was hoping some of the locals will start taking notice. The box score advised 1500 in attendance, up from 1300 against SELA, and 1000 against LIU, so gradual improvement. Lookin...

Win 4th road game in 2 years? That is amazing progress compared to CJ. I remember the years of not beating any school outside the State of Louisiana for 3 or 4 years.

Angry Wave 42 - SMU 38. Wave rushes for 350 yards through the SMU porous defense and throws for another 200. Nickerson and Lewis, including Shenall on passing situations continue to outperform. Hopefully we get a pass rush.

Good point, but I thought we already established with some on this site that Army and Navy are not “good” teams. So North Texas beating Army does not prove they are a “good” team.
