Re: Ruse is out--Search for new OC has begun

I've said all along if we are going to win at this level and especially in this conference we need balance and we need to score a lot of points to win. Glad WF is recognizing that with this move. Here is a recap from when he appeared on the radio yesterday by a poster on another site: Fritz was on ...

Re: Ruse is out--Search for new OC has begun

This will throw a wrench in the yoggie board—can they discuss a fired coach if the season hasn’t ended?

Re: Ruse is out--Search for new OC has begun

Fantastic news. I’m frankly stunned. I didn’t think Fritz would pull the trigger. This really does suggest that Fritz wants to stay in N.O., and be very successful at Tulane. As everyone on this board knows, with even a slightly better offense we could have been at least 8-4 this season. Apparently ...

Re: Ed Daniels

Aaron Brooks was far better and had much more success than Banks and I hated Aaron Brooks. Banks was flat out terrible this season. Didn’t have much help, didn’t have great offensive coaching,but McMillan once acclimated to the system whatever it is gave us a better chance to win. As for 6-6, it’s ...

Re: Ed Daniels

If Tulane wins 7 to 10 games a year thru 2022 and sells 80 to 100% of Yulman during that time, they will be a top expansion candidate for the Big 12. The athletics would match the academics, we are a geographical fit in a recruiting target area for the Big 12. 2023 is when the next round of contrac...

That’s a tough 2019 schedule even if everything goes right in the offseason, which it probably won’t.

Re: How Many Regular Season Games Will Tulane Win?

I read that Willie Fritz said Jonathan has a chance to play on Sunday and a strong arm. I never read that he said he would be a high draft pick. I might have missed it somewhere but those are two totally different statements from a HC. And I don't buy the first, so I certainly don't agree with the ...

Re: Tulane Comes Back To Beat Navy 29-28

A great win, but a tough win—it will never be easy being green. McMillan’s best passing game primarily because he slowed his passes down to 80 mph—they were catchable, although we had a couple drops early. Our D front seven played extremely well against Navy’s option. I missed our 3Q collapse, but a...

No one has said we don't want better, I just don't understand why everyone expects overnight success.

Re: Ed Daniels

What part of mediocrity are we fighting about? We had a prez who wrote a comic book on excellence by investing $3.67 in athletics. I believe that Fritz started this race 5 miles behind the starting line. It’s still not an excuse for being or accepting mediocrity. Beat Navy and we’ve “inched” forwar...

Tulane win 38-35.

Based on Tulane winning a share of the West Division Championship WF is given a 10 year extension at $10 million a year fully guaranteed. Ed Daniels dies happy.

Hope everyone enjoys their day. Tulane athletics doesn't give us much to enjoy but at least we have each other to commiserate with about it. For that I'm thankful.
Indeed. And Happy Thanksgiving to all the Gotulas.

Re: Navy score prediction thread

I too have bad vibes about this game. Our offense is stalled once again, as we beat our head against the tackle to tackle wall, and the Navy option grinds our D down. But it won’t come down to one inch in the last second.

Three years into the Fritz era, and I'm not sure what he's trying to run. If it was an actual RPO offense, that should attract QB talent, as the NFL continues to morph toward RPO offenses. And why wouldn't Fritz and his offensive brain trust make adjustments during this season? Are we married to a f...

Tulane is selling tickets to Navy game for $5 yet they stick it to the alums for Homecoming with $50 tickets.

Something else we should consider. Fritz may not be the coach to take us to the top, but I still think he's the right person to build our foundation. CJ built nothing. He got us a winning season, but it was all smoke and mirrors, with no way to sustain. Yes, our offense is not what we'd all like, b...

Ruse is running the offense Fritz wants him to run.

Nothing about the other three wins should really be called nice but wins they were. I have...
