Re: UCF holds on to defeat Memphis 31-30

Sports Illustrated picks Memphis RB Darrell Henderson as 1st string All-American. Discounting the first offensive play of the game when Henderson scampered for a TD, our defense held him to -5 yards rushing. Henderson was the only AAC selection for first string All-American. RB: Darrell Henderson, M...

Re: Line Opens Tulane 7 pts. > SMU

I'd lay the points! I still think we get our way to 6 wins, maybe 7, but giving a TD to ANY d1 opponent is too many points IMHO. We're not that good. D, I hope you're right. Unfortunately it would be very Tulanish for us to soil the bedsheets on one of the three remaining home games for which we wi...

Re: One Person's mid season's take

Here's another's: 1) Dauphine should be getting more touches. Check 2) Mooney drops too many balls. Check 3) Banks should be the starter and McMillian should come in if he's struggling or a change of pace is indicated. Check 4) The D makes plays but could use better LB'ers. Check 5) Special teams i...

Re: Tulane Tames the Tigers 40-24

How do you "hold on" to win when you're down two TD's at halftime? Actually, it was a nail-biter of a finish. Memphis probably should have won except for their boneheaded mistakes. With UCF leading 31-30 and 6+ minutes left to play, Memphis had the ball on the UCF 32 for a critical 3rd down play. D...

Re: Tulane Tames the Tigers 40-24

Memphis leading #10 UCF 3o-17 at the half. Henderson (who we held to -5 yards rushing after his first run for a TD) has 170+ yards in the first half. Memphis is tough at home. Glad we played them at our house.

Watching this game made me ill and now we have two weeks to let the wound fester before SMU. Brace yourselves. Should we lose that game, this will be an even lower point than we experienced at the end of CJ's tenure. SMU is not just a 'must' win. It's a 'you-better-win-or-else'. It's tough being a T...

The easiest defensive play call in football: When Huderson lines up in the backfield; he'll take the handoff and run inside to the left.

It appears that Cincy is a team that can step on their own private parts...even moreso than the Wave:
93.8 average penalty yards for Cincinnati, the highest total in the AAC and the third highest nationally.
