Re: UCF

I posted this on the AAC forum: If we're playing that game.... 1. 1900, undefeated 5-0 Tulane ran over Ole Miss, LSU, Bama, Millsaps, Southern Athletic Club, outscored opponents 105-0 2. 1925, undefeated 9-0-1, nation's leading scorer, beat Northwestern in Chicago, 6/10 shutouts, outscored opponents...

Re: UCF

Difference between real leadership and Tulane circa 98....

Pretty amazing seeing the national talking heads taking up the Knights cause. Le Batard, Bilas, Bianchi, the list keeps growing! Even ESPN having to at least entertain the debate.

Finebaum still looking like a moron though, SEC kissass

I hope they go after Sumlin and not Norvell. This AAC season is huge with TV negotiations coming up, need our best to be their best.

Re: Shocking RichRod news........

Pac12 in shambles. Should give Houston an easy "p5" win in 2018. Wonder who they'll be able to get as a replacement this late in the offseason...

Also wonder what the rules are on their players that signed early?

And they went 3-5*. (3-6 but do we really count Grambling?)

The teams we play next year went 4-4. It's a more difficult schedule. Still, I feel more confident than coming into this season.

Quick look ahead to 2018

With 2017 football season in the books, with just an SEC exhibition game left to play, UCF crowned national champion, I think it's interesting to look ahead to 2018. Also coming back to work today really sucks. Greenies bring back a lot. Biggest losses will be Hilliard and Badie on offense. Defense ...

Re: Tulsa Game Thread- Calling Troy Dannen

Dickson moved game times whenever possible to avoid Saints games. But this won’t help with the crowd one Ioda. After school gets back in session things should pick up. Late Jan 2018. The point is it helps those of us who want to go to the game and see the Saints. If it hadn't been moved up there wo...

Re: Wake Forest Game Thread Thursday August 28, 2018

Upset over Wake would be huge. Take care of UAB, who went bowling in their first season back, and we might be getting some very good press going into Columbus.

Prime time against Ohio State? I'll take it.

Re: Football Recruiting 2018

Good news keeps rolling!

I could see with a couple classes ranked 50-60 and Fritz's coaching ability, this program finally gets in the consistent 8-10 wins and knocking on top 25. Saw it happen at mizzou with Pinkel and this feels very similar.

Re: Football Recruiting 2018

And just like that, less than 24 hours go by and Ryan Wright is downgraded from a .7998 to a .7498. He is now our worst rated recruit and our average and total points have dropped. Still 4th in the AAC but slipped to 65, behind Illinois, in the national ranking.

Re: Football Recruiting 2018

Article mentions that Camel is teammates with high 4 star safety Kelvin Joseph, who decommitted from upriver. I looked him up and we never offered. I'd hope Fritz would try to use the Camel advantage to make a run at Joseph. Stick it to the pussycats!

Re: Wave loses to FSU 72-53

Yup. Georgia State is not a good loss. And getting blown out by good acc teams are not good losses. Had those games been close you could make a case. Good thing is the AAC is better run than the Tulane athletic department and our conference schedule was made pretty easy. 8 games against USF/ECU/Tuls...
