Re: New Athletic Director

I still think there's a real possibility of going to 4 conferences of 16 teams. Tulane would remain on the outside looking in. I also think the overall money is going to go down on a per school basis for the Power Conferences. And the "Power" conferences are very likely to form their own division, ...

Re: New Athletic Director

Part of the issue is the uncertainty and disagreement on what would constitute athletics success (is it winning 8 games regularly? Is it moving to a power conference?) and whether that definition of success would be achievable as there is an endless sea of G5 teams that have strung together seasons ...

Re: Lines Opens Memphis 13.5 pts. > Tulane

Tulane is going to go from embarrassing itself OOC to embarrassing itself in conference.

That is all.

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

My impression is that Abraham was more of a pocket passer and he wanted to come to Tulane due to CJs pro-style scheme. Fritz’s arrival indicated that Tulane was lookin for a more athletic QB, regardless as to whether Fritz actually sat him down and told him that.

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

Tulane's solution is that it needs to go full-on spread, but the issue is that Louisiana doesn't have that many spread HS teams, so Tulane would need to focus recruiting on Texas in order to avoid having to recruit and teach Louisiana players how to play spread football.

Re: Bonanza for Rice Baseball

Rice added tuition in the 1950s, I believe, and this new change is now the closest that they have been to being tuition free since that time. It's true that this would further demolish Tulane baseball, but Tulane has so many concerns and so comparatively little money that there is nothing really to...

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

Regardless, Tulane isn't that good.

Who sees a winning record against:
@Ohio State
Memphis
@Cincinnati
SMU
@Tulsa
@USF
ECU
@Houston
Navy

?

Tulane would need to win 5 of those for bowl eligibility. 5.

Re: When do we make a change at QB ?

Tulane could make a change at QB, but, honestly, what the chances that the other QBs are "better" (i.e. run threats, okay with the deep ball, etc.) given Fritz's reputation for evaluating talent? It's true that Tulane is 1-2 and Fritz's seat should be super hot, but, at the same time, those two loss...

Re: CUSA’s UAB over Wave 31-24

Saying that Saban couldn’t win here due to QB play is a little extreme since Saban doesn’t build his teams around QB play.

Re: UAB GameDay Thread

This talk of dropping football is retarded. Fritz just cannot hack it at this level. Look at CJ. He got us to a bowl in C-USA. Moved to AAC and couldn't compete. We just need someone who can coach above the JV level. Agreed about Fritz. Tulane just needs to hire the OC from a P5 that generally has ...

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...

Re: UAB GameDay Thread

I feel like Tulane would win more games if they either went full-blown triple option... ...or scrapped all option attacks and went Air Raid. I don't think Tulane knows its own identity. It's year 3, and even if you suck there should be an identity. And to think we could’ve had Oklahoma State’s OC.

Re: Line Opens Tulane 3.5 pts. > UAB

Interesting how AAC doesn't get any respect. ECU, who is arguably one of the WORST teams in the AAC (of course UConn is the worst) beats North Carolina 41-19 yesterday. This week, UCF, (one of the BEST teams in the AAC) goes to Chapel Hill to play UNC, and is only a 13.5 point favorite. Makes you w...

Re: UH crushing Arz

The AAC is a mixed bag so far.

Navy lost to Hawaii
ECU lost to NCA&T (FCS)
Temple lost to Villanova (FCS and may lose to Buffalo today)
SMU lost to North Texas (the TCU loss was okay)
Tulane lost to Wake Forest

USF defeated GaTech
Houston defeated Arizona

Re: Nicholls St. Game Thread

Following that line of thinking then the O-Line must have been petrified by competition. This. Banks isn't a great college QB, but it's difficult to justify laying the blame on him given what he was able to do on the two plays that did result in TDs. When the smoke clears, Tulane's football team do...

I’m now more concerned about our offense than defense. Out 2 long TD’s were on busted plays.
This! The offensive issues were astounding for a program that has kept the same staff together for three years, has a returning starting QB, and has some talent at WR/RB.

Re: Wake Forest wins in OT 23-17

It's amazing that Willie Fitz administration is the only FBS football coaching administration that has been completely intact since 2016, but it's simultaneously disappointing given that what happened yesterday is the best that could be done with that.
