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: Mack Brown story about Tulane at Darryl Royal's memorial

This thread definitely gives me a better appreciation for Chris Scelfo, and drops Mack another notch. He took shots at Tulane long after leaving, and as outlined above, did nothing to fight "The Model". Personally, I think UNC made a bad hire, much along the lines of Tulane hiring Toledo. That bein...

there were at least three "advisers" on the trip, two that I remember were.Royal, and the AD from ND...Royal told Mack he needed to go somepalce with "THE" in front of a "State"....

Re: R.R. interviewed at Ole Miss

What a drop in stature for Rich Rod to go from the head coach at West Virginia, Michigan, and Arizona to an offensive coordinator at Ole Miss the cellar dweller in the SEC. He should have never left West Virginia where he was doing really well and plus he was originally from there. At one time Rich...

Re: Bowl game attendance down again.

G5 teams can’t compete with teams like Bama, Clemson, etc. Yes, but this isn't a natural thing. This was purposely created. The more ESPN and media and the autonomy 5 conferences pushed the P5/G5 narrative, the more the perception of "can't compete" was ingrained into the viewing public. The more t...

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...

Re: Bowl game attendance down again.

I don’t think we’ll see a 16 team playoff. Attendance would still be down in the early round. Hypothetically this year 1-Bama would play 16-Kentucky, again. If this bowl was anywhere west, not many fans would make it, knowing the better game is the following week and then some. One of the reasons t...

Re: Bowl game attendance down again.

Also, the BCS national championship game kind of made all other bowls irrelevant. Which one? The NCAA doesn't recognize the champion of the ESPN P5 Invitational as Champions. But I TOTALLY get your point. They just need to expand to a minimum of 16 teams, and make the other bowl games part of 15 ga...

Yulman wanted his name on a football stadium, not a practice facility.

We need a new coach. We would be better off with an immediate announcement even though it will mean an interim coach and another crud year of recruiting. +1,000. It’s a zombie program—going through the motions, but completely lifeless. Let’s acknowledge the severity of the problem. Any interim acti...

This thread really highlights just how many good QBs Tulane has had over the years. Which in turn makes me wonder if Fritz might help his QB recruiting efforts if the Athletic Dept would put a wall sized montage of great Tulane QBs somewhere on the premises.

Re: Will Hall New OC

The only thing that I believe, relative to Coach Hall, is that he will likely be a “one and done” at Tulane (maybe two years max). But hopefully, Atkins may be ready to step up into the OC roll by then-and we’ll have some continuity of what we all hope will be a varied and effective offense.
