Re: ECU humiliates Tulane 82-80

Williams of ECU shooting light ou and Frzazier with limited minutes or did not play (could not watch or listen to game), was the tale of the tape. Hope th teams can bring it to the Tigers this Sunday. Williams was hot but most of his shots were open looks. Frazier still playing less than 100%. If U...

Re: Wave loses a tough one toTemple- 83-76

I agree that this team needs some more talent, but winning this game without Melvin Frazier was near impossible. Even with that, they almost pulled it off. It was an outstanding college basketball game with both teams going on runs and trading the lead. The outside shooting slump Reynolds has been i...

Re: Tulane Women Basketball

My feeling is that when we moved to the AAC, Coach Stockton was so focused on getting bigger, she neglected to make sure she had ball handlers. With Leslie Vorpahl in charge, it was probably easy to keep saying, "We'll get to that next year." This year is next year and there is no one curr...

Re: ECU Game Thread

Ok coach explain having no bigs back to deflect ball and having a foul to give and not instructing guys to foul on the catch. Of course the ECU player pushed off Cornish to give him the ability to catch the ball and get it up. Somebody please point out to me where Dunleavy excels at coaching. Certa...

Re: Embarrassing Home Loss to USF

Can someone please explain to me why Cornish gets so much pt? Dude is a very weak link. He is the worst shooter on the team and has the 2nd most turnovers. You are exactly right about Cornish being a weak spot. I think the key is Caleb Daniels but he is constantly in foul trouble. The last 2 games ...

Re: 2018 D1 Baseball Poll

You are wrong. The strength of schedule is based on your opponents records and the records of their opponents. The RPI formula doesn’t even know if a team is ranked in the D1 baseball poll or any other poll for that matter. Of course there is a assumption-based bias in RPI. There has to be. The onl...

Re: UCF

Actually not. We had an offense no one had seen and a defense that was opportunistic. You can trash the 98 team all you want but they deserved a chance for it all. If you look back at how it was set up, it was really the invention of the spread option run out of the shotgun, and you are right that ...

Re: Lindsey Scott commits to LSU now transferring to EMCC

If Scott comes to Tulane I'd Be surprised if he didn't take the starting job from Banks when it's all said and done. Maybe not by opening week but at some point in the season If he's better, and knows the offense as well as Banks does at the time, then it's a good problem to have. But Banks got a l...

Tulane women Bball vs Tulsa

Also, I have noticed that Tene Thompson has not been on a game roster since December 17. Anyone know what happened with ...

Re: Tulane Women Basketball vs USF

The USF women's basketball program is built as a European basketball farm system. Of their 12 players, 8 are from Europe, 4 are Americans. That's the way Coach Fernandez builds his team and they are very good. Tulane could certainly do that if they chose to. Tulane signed a girl for 2017 from the Sp...

Re: Tulane whips Temple 85-75

Some expressed disappointment at letting Temple get close a few times and I agree that it added unwanted anxiety. However, when they overcome it and win by hitting free throws, getting key blocks and breaking presses with dunks, it builds for the next time.

The bottom line is that the teams are fun to watch and only when they play elite programs do you figure it as a loss. Eventually, I expect that to change as well.
