Re: FIU GameDay Thread

What is going on with the offense? Is it awful play calling, or is it Banks--he just looks bad. FIU HC Butch Davis keying on Banks. You stop him you stop our offense. WF needs to make an adjustment at half. The worst thing about this is that even if Tulane wins the game, other teams will have a blu...

Re: FIU GameDay Thread

It's concerning that FIU has turned the ball over twice and Tulane hasn't turned over the ball once but FIU is still winning. Also, 264 yds vs 90 yds is something to note.

Re: Mike Leach says CFB should have a real playoff, not 4 teams

Good lord, Aber, you sound like a closet P5 fan or something. I could care less whether one P5 school wants to see a CUSA or Sunbelt school or not. They're part of the NCAA and deserve a legitimate shot at the title. Ask LSU about those "Sunbelt" teams. Right now, 4 P5's make the CFP. Goi...

Re: Mike Leach says CFB should have a real playoff, not 4 teams

The overarching issue is that there is no reason for the P5 to start guaranteeing any non-P5 league anything since (1) no one has sued over the current system, (2) the top 20% of the P5 is quantifiably better than the top 20% of the G5, and (3) guaranteeing conferences a certain level of inclusion w...

Re: Mike Leach says CFB should have a real playoff, not 4 teams

I hear you but if our strength of schedule is so much higher then a one loss AAC champion should rise above the others assuming that loss is to one of the other good teams in the conference or to a highly regarded OOC opponent. I don't think we have had a one loss champion lose out on that slot. I ...

One can say it and I did. We are talking the teams as they are currently. Sorry but not impressed with wins against Stephen Austin, North Texas, Ark. St., and UCONN. I'm far from the only one not buying what you selling. Just spouting a teams record doesn't cut it. It matters who they have beaten. ...

Re: Massey Composite Rankings Tulane and the AAC

Not saying Houston shouldn't have received at least a vote but SMU and Arizona are not good teams. They would be in the average range. Well, saying that SMU is not a good team is like saying that Tulane is either a good team or a bad team. It's way to early in the season to make statements like tha...

Re: Massey Composite Rankings Tulane and the AAC

Part of the problem is, more and more P5s are filling their OOC schedules with other P5s and low end G4/FCS. They're squeezing the AAC out. Same thing with the bowls. Several bowls that we used to have tie ins with that would have matched us against P5 schools dropped us and are now matching up two...

Re: Mike Leach says CFB should have a real playoff, not 4 teams

Its because the entire system is rigged to keep the G5 out. Remember last year? There was talk that even an undefeated Houston team wouldn't have been a lock for a 4 team playoff. As P5s continue to schedule each other, our strength of schedule gets weaker and weaker, and that's the very metric the...

When someone can show me a case where the best team in the country was not included in the 4-team playoff, I will reconsider.

Re: Mike Leach says CFB should have a real playoff, not 4 teams

FCS uses 24 teams. Top 8 seeds get a bye, then 4 weeks trim sixteen to one. It can be done. For one, cut the number of regular season games back to 11 instead of 12. There's one week right there. Give each of the ten conference champs a spot, which leaves 14 other teams. Even if all 14 were current...

I'll give in to the back patting for a moment with this question:

When was the last time that Tulane was 5 games into the season and only had losses to top 25 ap teams?

Re: The Massey Index

This is way off topic, but Tulane is #68 in total offensive YPG (~408 ypg) at the moment. That's quite the improvement.

As a side note, the AAC has 5 teams in the top 13 in total offensive YPG in all of the NCAA (UCF, SMU, Navy, Memphis, and USF; all above 500 ypg).

Re: COACH WF BUZZ

I'd think Kansas would be interested - they might see the option as a path to respectability; they also recruit NOLA very well right now and might see a natural bridge. Football ops is a must; as are raises across the board and increased recruiting budget. But, as always, it's how you replace that ...

So this is really the pivotal one for bowl eligibility. If we can get this, we should be able to handle, FIU, Cinn and ECU. Otherwise, we'd need to pull an upset somewhere along the line to get to 6-6. The only unwinnable game, IMHO, is the USF game. Every other team on this schedule is beatable, t...

Re: LSU loses to Troy

We'll have to agree to disagree. They lost to a bad Tennessee team and beat a NC team that has lost 13 starters for the season to injury after already losing a lot of talent from last season. Sorry but people will look at who they played and beat to get to 3-1. Just being a 3-1 P5 doesn't make them...
