Re: AAC Attempts at Power Status

Directly, winning has little to do with getting into the "P Club". The primary requirement for an individual school getting into a P conference is it's ability to generate revenue--from filling at least 40,000 seats each weekend, to attracting hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of TV viewers. ...

Re: AAC Attempts at Power Status

If the AAC gets more than $5M per team for TV money only, it would be surprising. The primary issues facing the AAC at the negotiating table will be: 1. Viewership 2. Number of serious bidders and 3. Navy has a separate tv deal with CBS Oddly enough, the biggest game in terms of viewership of the re...

Re: SBNATION on The Wave

SBnation predicts Wake will be the 35th strongest team in the nation for a reason. Honestly, we had these exact same conversations 2 years ago when we played Wake, which was predicted to be #74 this time that year (and finished #60), and we all saw how that turned out. Wake is much better now than i...

Re: SBNATION on The Wave

Since it's the doldrums of the offseason (cannot say summer up here yet!) I decided to take a look at some scouting reports of Wake Forest. The first I looked at was CFN: https://collegefootballnews.com/2018/04/preview-2018-wake-forest-demon-deacons According to CFN (and they don't even mention the...

Re: 2018 O Line Ranked "Elite"

Has the writer ever seen this offensive line play? Yes, they're veterans, but they are far from dominant and typically get our QB crushed. He probably went off of our rushing stats last year, and didn't even watch film. The line can create openings at the point of attack, but it also can look reall...

Yeah I still feel like LSU benefits more from Tulane not holding camps with out of state P5s than Tulane does. If the goal is to weaken LAU’s stranglehold on Louisiana recruits, Tulane should be bringing in Texas or TCU and the like.

Now does Mike Fitts or the Board give Dannen an extension to keep him from going to Kansas? :mrgreen: Why would they? Dannen’s the moron who gave a 5 year extension to a coach with 2 losing seasons.

Kansas will have the money to buy him out if they want him. You can be sure he's aware of the possibilities and didn't get himself boxed in. This. His salary was $1.5M or less and Tulane hasn’t been successful enough to make the demands that Houston did for its coach, so it won’t be anywhere near h...

This could get hairy for Tulane and Willie Fritz. As Golfnut points out, it's unlikely that the new AD hires a coach that's in his mid 50's, runs a gimmicky offense, and hasn't won at the AAC level (yet.). Then again, I doubt the new AD fires the football coach between now and the start of the seas...

During most of the periods listed, BC and TCU were in P5s. Further, TCU primarily recruits locally (TX) and BC primarily recruits regionally (MA/NY/CT/PA/NH), unlike Tulane.
