Re: Navy GameDay Thread

Lot's of complaining from the posters who predicted that we win 3 or 4 games this year. I've still got us at 6 wins this year. We've had two close losses to 3-0 teams (11pts total). I'd trade that any day against the Toledo and CJ years. If you guys can't see improvement from the last two regimes th...

Re: Navy Score Prediction Thread

Tulane 17
Navy 13

My early season prediction has this one as a loss but with Brantley starting, we pick up a surprise win. We also beat ULaLa, Umass, UCF, SMU and UConn. I had Wake in the loss column along with Memphis, Tulsa and Temple. UH is a problem.

Re: Wake Forest Score Prediction Thread

Wake's offense was putrid last year and will have trouble against our D. Wake 12 / Angry Wave 10. We lose a close one.

Re: 2016 Hall of Fame Class

Completely agree! RD's inclusion cheapens the Tulane athletics HOF. It would be fitting for SC to attend the ceremonies with his died green hair. I had already arranged to fly in for this game so I'll ensure that I bring the airplane airsickness bag with me for this occasion.

Re: Bigeasybeliever.com predicts a 5-7 2016 Tulane Season

Classify me as the optimist this year, but the combination of WF's discipline, focus on special teams, Kyle Speer's conditioning, a competent OLine coach, and a punishing defense results in a surprising 6 or 7 win regular season for the Angry Wave. Bank on wins against Southern, ULaLA, UMass, UCF, S...

Re: Houston Series #Two Baseball Conference Champions!!

We had a great time at the Tulane Alumni Crawfish Boil in Houston preceding the baseball game. Mark Martinez did a outstanding job cooking the crawfish, jambalaya and all the fixings. 130 people had signed up and paid and advance, but I would estimate a few more paid at the door. What a difference i...

Re: 2016 Football Schedule

Good possibility of being bowl-eligible by mid-Oct. I like the front-end of our AAC schedule much more than the last 3 games considering graduations and coaching changes of our opponents. Houston, Temple and an up-and-coming UConn might be the toughest games on the schedule.

Wow! I'm at a loss for words. Northern Iowa? All of the secret interviews and meetings for this. Not a home-run, not a double, not sure if it is even a bloop single. Hopefully he can find a football coach.

Re: Potential head football coach candidates search

No offense taken. As mentioned, I don't believe he would be an optimal candidate, but I'm advised he is being considered. I'd be much more in favor of a Todd Monken candidate. Someone we should've picked up 4 years ago.

Hmmm. My insider says take the Ryan rumors seriously. Saints connections run deep. Not an optimal choice in my book but maybe better than what we have currently.

Re: Potential AD candidates search

What has Burke done over the last 2 years during this dumpster fire of an athletics program? If she was as great as you're stating, she would've had at least some impact or visibility. If we choose Burke or Sidwell, we might as well drop athletics. Like some of the others on these boards, I didn't e...
