Re: Memphis Game Thread

The 26 turnovers against USF were the most (4 more than any other game) for as long as sports-reference.com has tracked that stat. Look for Memphis' full court press to set back-to-back record breaking games with the Wave eclipsing the 30 turnover mark. Unbelievable how poorly coached this team is....

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

You also haven't seen this team playing with a point guard all year. I'm upset too, but it's not insignificant to have a bunch of freshmen out there with no one running the offense at all. Even as a redshirt freshman, Barrett should be better, but he is not and there are NO OTHER OPTIONS. You can't...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Easily the worst coached Tulane MBB team since the days of Dick Longo in the early 70’s. Longo was fired after two years going 20-32. A record Dunleavy would get extended on today. Sounds like Dick Longo was a better coach! "You are what your record says you are" Bill Parcels. Yep, Dick was better....

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Can’t say the players have quit, but can say they aren’t very good and nothing about the coaching reflects any interest in making the whole team be greater than the sum of its parts. A valid rationale for not sacking a coach is that things will get worse, but in this case how can things get worse? ...

Re: USF Game Thread

Will the Green Wave play a competitive game this season? I'm downgrading my 2 win conference prediction to 0. Our starting backcourt tonight went 1-12 from the field with 16 turnovers. That may the worst stat line I've ever seen. This team is beyond terrible. Doesn't matter Daniels wasn't dressed.

Does Troy have the gumption to pull the plug on Dunleavy at season's end? If he does, can he afford to take a chance on a little known coach from the NAIA like Cordaro from LSUA? Do Wave fans have the patience to accept such a hire if he did so? Is it safer for him to spend big money on a name coac...

Its always hard to explain to fans of P5 schools in general, and SEC schools in particular, as to why the system doesn't work. They have a valid point in saying P5s are more talented (read "better") than G5 schools. What you can't get them to understand is, it wasn't always that way and the system ...

Re: SMU Game Thread

Good to have lofty goals. So tired of hearing how hard we played and we never give up. Seems like a good trait but it becomes nauseating when it's the only positive ever said and at times doesn't even feel true. In the post-game interview, Dunleavy made the remark (I'm paraphrasing): It's a shame t...

Re: Potential Men’s Basketball Coaches thread

Dannen did not predict Tulane would make the NIT. The statement he made was in the context of questions about the schedule and what he said was that the (weaker) non-conference schedule was reflective of the awareness that the team would, at best, be competing to make the NIT, and that next year th...

We have to hit rock bottom at some point, but I'm not sure the Ala A&M game was it. Take Cincy and lay the 21 1/2 points. Gonna have to lay 23 now as 2/3 of the action is on Cincy still.
