Re: UAB Prediction Thread

Same spot as last year... OOC road game against a G5 team where we are favored and coming off a blow out win. Don't trust WF game planning. I think we'll see a similar outcome, 23-10 UAB. Not the same. Nicholls was harder than Tulsa was last season. Game with Tulsa was over by the end of the first ...

That game should’ve been won. I don’t understand the offensive gameplan and strategy. It all bewilders me. That game was there to be had. History says otherwise, until we learn how to win we won’t win. I’ve seen this too many years. Neuheisel and Brian Jones post-gane were pretty hard on Tulane and...

Re: Basketball OOC

It does look like a Dickson schedule. This is not going to get the team ready for conference play, nor is it going to fool anybody. At the end of the season, if we end up 18-14 with an 8-12 conference record, we're not getting into the NIT. SOS means something and ours will be somewhere between 100...

Re: Line Opens Wake Forest 7.5 pts. > Wave

Many great coaches have said "a short, quick pass is like a long handoff". That's been said in this thread numerous times, yet everyone keeps saying I want to run the ball 80% of the time in this game. Nothing could be further from the truth. I want to play ball control. That's not the same thing. ...

Re: Line Opens Wake Forest 7.5 pts. > Wave

WF had a great offense last year. True if WF = Wake Forest.. False if WF = Willie Fritz And while poking fun at the Wake team of 2 years ago that managed 10 first downs, 175 total yards and a measily 7 points against us, no doubt that this is a better WF offense now. Even without their starting QB. ...

Just wondering, this is the same OC and Wake Forest team that scored "7" whole points on us just 24 games ago?
Ha! And with only 10 first downs and a measly 175 yards of total offense...

Probably because we ran the ball 67% of the time and controlled the clock. Earned us a whopping 3 points...

Re: Lines Opens Wake Forest 7.5 pts. > Wave

I'm not saying we should go 80% run or even 70% run. But to run the ball effectively keeps their best weapon, their offense, on the sidelines, while our worst unit, or at least most suspect coming into the season, on the sides and well rested. I'm not and nor have I ever espoused going back to the ...

Re: Lines Opens Wake Forest 7.5 pts. > Wave

Just running the ball doesn't guarantee controlling the ball. We still have a suspect line and new RB's. It could lead to 3 and outs or empty drives. If we're going to win significant games this year we need to score a lot of points. No one said we need to be 50-50 but we can't be 80-20 run centric...

That being said, I always walk away from listening to a Troy Dannen interview thinking of how much better off Tulane is with him as our AD than the previous AD. The frustrating part is that he says the right things but it hasn't translated to winning. I also felt all 3 of his hires seemed solid. Bu...

you think if he had worn jersey #30 or lower he would have gone in the first round? Coincidence that he wore 35 and went 35th? I think not.
