Re: Stadium Capacity

Perhaps not all of the upper level will have chairback seating. For that matter, I'm betting there's going to be a whole lot of bleacher-type seating. If the entire upper level only holds 3,000, I don't see how we get to 20k realistically. Again, I'll go by what has been announced rather than what ...

Re: mbb beats 8-17 marshall by 3

Charlotte has victories over some very good teams and Marshall was coming off a game in which they pushed southern miss to the edge. Have to give EC credit. Some really strange results in CUSA, it seems like anyone can win or get crushed each night. EC will be back next year as the team will actual...

Amen!

Re: New President Is Michael Fitts

Dr. Box, how, exactly, can you say that Sandy Barbour did a lousy job at Tulane? She was undermined by SC in the hiring of RR. She saw to it to hire Lisa Stockton. She has gone on to bigger and better jobs since she left, and is very well respected. She certainly did the job 1000% better than RD did...

Re: New President Is Michael Fitts

I agree with Aug. OUG is entitled to his opinion, I just wondered if he ever worked for SC. I'll take his word that he didn't. I, too, wonder if the present strategy is too little, too late, and that SC wants Tulane to be part of whatever shakes out of the coming split between the P5 and non-P5, wit...

Re: Spring practice

Although I think it's a bit early, I'll leave the reasoning to those that know more about this than I do. I'm interested to learn this spring: 1. The depth chart, particularly on the offensive line. Where do CJ's " big thumpers" from last year's class fit in? 2. Does Montana still have the starting ...

Think this is the deepest class we've had in awhile in terms of the number of kids who are pretty close to FBS ready.
That's a good thing. Competition at any position is a positive.

Re: Mike Neu headed to the Saints

Just saw a piece in the TP which indicated that CJ may be considering Aaron Price(brother of OC Eric Price) as the new QB coach. Considering the anemic offense that TU fielded in 2013, his hire would not inspire happy thoughts in me. What are your thoughts in the matter? Well, if CJ is truly consid...

Our 4* recruit is not a JUCO. We have another that is a 4* on ESPN.
We had 4* recruits on 247 in 2012 and 2013.

None of them were JUCOs.

Re: recruiting

If you look at the rivals site, the rankings are based on number of total points. If you are going to use these sites, I think a better indicator is the average recruit score. Right now, we would be 5th in the AAC as far as average and that is ahead of UH, SMU, Memphis, Uconn, ECU, and Tulsa. We wo...
