Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

Looking at Rivals recruiting site, it should have been no surprise why Houston, Cinci & UCF are that much better than us. Houston has finished 7th, 1st & 6th over the last 3 years with (1) 5 star and (3) 4 star recruits. Cinci has finished 1st, 7th & 2nd with (2) 4 star recruits. UCF has finished 3...

Re: BOWL PROJECTIONS

The American Conference has 7 bowl tie-ins. We currently have 6 teams already bowl eligible with SMU and Tulane at 5-5. If it gets to a choice between SMU and Tulane both at 6-6, I would think SMU would be chosen because they beat us. Imagine finally getting bowl eligible and not having anywhere to...

Re: Houston GameDay Thread

If Houston scores again before Tulane does, I’m probably going home. I can finish watching the beat down in the warmth and convenience of my place.

Re: Houston Tix

I'll be there too, but I'll probably be late due to work + Houston traffic.

It's amazing that this game could be a blowout by Tulane or a blowout by Houston and neither outcome would be particularly surprising.

Re: Tulane blows out USF and Kansas’ coach is fired the next days. Coincidence?

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy we won and all. But c'mon, WF's record here is still putrid, and it'll take a string of convincing wins and a winning season to at least get any interest from other schools... I don't believe Kansas would be remotely interested in a 58 year-old coach whose head coachin...

If Tulane wins out and SMU loses again, say hello to Tulane in the AAC title game

That would be interesting. On one hand, it would be great for Tulane to make it. On the other hand, a 7-5 team in the conference title game isn't that great for conference optics.

Maybe. The AD tweeted that he wants a HC with head coaching experience, so that knocks out a few from that group.

After this weekend a two loss LSU will stay ahead of an unbeaten UCF. The G5 will never get a shot at a 4 team playoff. UCF has won like 20 straight and still can’t crack the Top 10. I get the angst. But what would UCF's record be right now if they had played LSU's schedule? What is LSU's record in...

None of this is about fairness or equity, but sports fans should know that by now.

That being said, in addition to UCF's situation, it's interesting that Houston did not make the list, especially given that it defeated previously undefeated USF.

Re: Fritz and staff lose the clown show 27-23

The AAC will not threaten to “kick us out of the conference” like the Big East threatened to do with Temple. The NFL didn’t “kick out” the Saints during the Mike Ditka Era (error?). From the AAC perspective we now pay a div. 1 salary and have invested $100 million in football and may simply have ma...

There are reasons he landed here and not at a P5, however, that being said, his shoulders should not bear the failures of Fritz.

The Re: CFN's week 6 Rankings & Bowl Projections

The AAC West is bad, but I'm still not confident that Tulane can capitalize on that. Navy, SMU, and Tulsa -should- all be wins given their poor performances so far, but, of course, that was said about UAB.

Even if Tulane won those games, it still would not be a "good" team.

Re: Wave Beats The Wave,Cincinnati wins 37-21

It’s time for him to go.

This year, the AAC West is crap, Wake and UAB aren’t that tough, and Fritz doesn’t appear to be able to capitalize on year 3 of his tenure. Odds are, the AAC West won’t be this crappy again in the near future.
