If we play not to lose...we will lose.

I agree with Guerry Smith and hope we’re both right - Georgia and Texas A&M overlooked NSU. Tulane will not overlook NSU.

It all hinges on improved offensive line play as per WF:

Thank you, Mr. Negative. No, they didn't just "sit on the ball". In fact, because Banks tried to make something happen, he fumbled and Nicholls got a gift TD. Happy?

I love how you want to lump ALL FCS teams into one. Its an "FCS" team. Just like we're not Alabama, Nicholls is not the same as playing Savannah State or Maine. Louisiana has tons of quality football players, and they have quite a few that are FBS quality players.

We're ahead 21-10, in a game where we only had the ball for 10 minutes in the first half.

Why does Dauphine have 2 carries? He has 107 yards on 2 freaking carries!

Sade . I agree. Taking a knee is playing not to lose. This isn’t war but it is football. Take ever opportunity to crush your opponent. It’s a mental attitude!

Fu*k you. I’m negative because I think we can score or take a shot at the End Zone. You’re fuc$ing negative because you want to sit on the goddamn ball. Why u think we lost last week? Sitting on the ball all goddamn game. That’s why we don’t win sh*t. Ridiculous statement. Sitting on the ball for 3 years trying to stay close.

Here’s negative for you. If we give the f’n ball to Dauphine 7-10x more last week we are 1-0.

Taking a knee or running the clock out-same difference. Playing Not to lose

I told y’all, we don’t lose to FCS programs. Tell those Colonel fellas to go back to where they came from so we can focus on beating the big boys.

Thank god for Dauphine, Mooney and Banks. I do believe teams can better as the season goes on. Hopefully our young guys on D do that. We will play a lot better offenses as the season goes on and they will light up the scoreboard on us if we don't get better. As for the O-line our skill players overcame them. Thanks to the Nicholls fans who helped give the game some atmosphere and put some money in our pockets.

The numbers of Tulane fans in attendance was not surprisingly good. Had we played Nicholls 5 years ago, they would have had maybe one-fourth of the crowd they brought tonight. But, they’re enjoying winning. Tonight, however, you could see the difference between these 2 teams. Toss aside those awful stupid penalties and the game would have been over earlier. A 25-point victory is what it should have been.
