Re: Lindsey Scott to be a Tiger again :(

His FB career path choices have been a complete train wreck. It’s nearly impossible to mess up that bad if when trying. The QB’s today that sit at least try to move on to a program where there’s an opportunity to start. His moves have been baffling.

Re: Bowl game attendance down again.

Recently read this article on declining college attendance in general. From this past October a good read on the problem.

Re: Bowl game attendance down again.

There are plenty of sports fans in the Tulane student body, but like their peers at most other elite colleges, they are NFL, NBA and EPL fans (and maybe fans of their home state public flagship college team) - and they have access to those games any time they want via streaming. If Tulane were actu...

Re: UH fires the Major

I don’t know. I’m not a big fan of the constant hiring and firing of coaches. Usually not a winning formula in the long run. If you commit to hiring a coach, they deserve 3-4 years unless it’s a complete disaster. Houston running its program like a Pee 6. They are at least trying by a spending big ...

Re: Miami....lookin' for a Coach

He left Temple “at the altar”. Leaves after two weeks to take Miami job. Took the Temple job on Dec. 13 and signed his first recruiting class with the Owls a couple of days later. Wow poor Temple except for the $4 million they going to get from Miami for stealing him back. https://www.cbssports.com...

Re: Bowl game attendance down again.

I enjoy Peter King's writing a lot. Here's his take on expanding the college playoffs: I am not in favor of expanding the playoffs, by the way. “Student-athlete” in big-time college football is already the biggest joke in American sports. Why? Let’s say this season had an eight-team playoff, and Cl...

Re: Bowl game attendance down again.

Nah, the playoffs shouldn't expand. The majority of these first round games have been blowouts. The problem is rewarding every conference instead of the 4 best teams. Top 2 get a bye. 3 plays 16, 4 vs 15, 5 vs 14, 6 vs 13, 7 vs 12, 8 vs 11. 9 vs 10. 1 seed then plays lowest remaining seed and two p...

Re: Bowl game attendance down again.

Having a 16 team college playoff format would appear to pose significant challenges, not the least of which is player safety. Sixteen teams would require four games in addition to the regular season schedule and conference championship games. That would require the two finalists to have played a 17...

Will go down as the worst loss in a Tulane basketball history.
It is up there with the loss to Prairie View A&M in 1998.
I thought of that as well. But they weren’t the worst RPI team in the nation at that time.

Three years into the program and losing to #350 last RPI Alabama A&M won’t cut it. It’s time for a change.

Re: Alabama A&M Game Thread

We just lost to an 0-11 team that was ranked last out of 350+ teams ranked by the Sagarin.
Why schedule an expensive northeast tournament to play
Towson 3-9
LaSalle 0-10
and Alabama A&M, also 0-10 and ranked last?
