As the only person on this board to correctly predict the winner of last weeks game I am willing to stake my not actually substantial grasp of football realities on my new found confidence that Tulane is Bowl bound. The big question is what Bowl will be honored to offer us an invite? After a detailed review of all I know about football supplemented by two Manhattans and a bottle of red I am now ready to reveal the answer:

Tulane (7/5) will play the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers on 19DEC18 in lovely Frisco Texas in the Frisco Bowl. After checking the Frisco Bowl website I can report that tickets are available now for the game but I recommend holding off on purchasing them as I suspect there will be tickets available closer to game day.

If you feel the urge to respond please include your prediction as to Bowl/Opponent for Tulane this season (I admit that this post may be based on a false assumption).

Would fans be happy if the Wave went 5-7 but got a bowl bid?

"Happy" may not be the right word for it but I would feel better than 5-7 and no bowl bid, "Happy" might be if we miraculously won said bowl game.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

IMO it would be similar to the basketball buy in post season CBI tournament. I wouldn’t support that.

I'd prefer getting to Tampa with a rematch vs UAB instead of USF going.

This is an interesting matchup....

Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl

Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta
Dec. 29, noon (ESPN)

Bonagura: LSU vs. UCF


Also looks like the New Orleans Bowl could get a decent matchup for a change:

Appalachian State vs Louisiana Tech.

They probably wont want to do any rematches. Of course, the Frisco Bowl would give us a chance to rematch against FIU.

I honestly can't even think or talk about this until after Homecoming. This next game vs. ECU has the classic Tulane disappointment / letdown setup. And we all know what has happened in the past.

While I would take a Nola bowl opportunity to squash ULM, LA Tech or any in state team. i would love a trip to Florida and i am sure i could get about a dozen young Tulane Alums to come with me. A match up against FIU is not interesting ( despite us owing them a beat down) but if FAU turns themselves around that would be interesting. I wish there were some good tie ins in California

This. First off, its homecoming. We must have the worst homecoming record this century. Second, we played a solid game on Saturday. We raised the bar a bit. Please do not trip over it and fall on your face. I do not think we will come out at home flat, but do not get too excited and make the mental mistakes. I watched the Memphis vs ECU game this weekend. ECU defense is swiss cheese and they had a lot of luck bounce their way to still lose to Memphis by multiple scores. We need to come out and take care of business. Keep the celebrating and dumb penalties in the locker room. Play smart, loose, fly around and celebrate after the game. Know the stakes, pave your path and go get the W.

We can talk about the rest after the game. That is what Saturday nights are for.

If this is all we have to choose from, which one pays out the most? We need the money.

Then Birmingham even more so, as the travel expenses would be less. Probably hotel and meal costs are lower as well.. Also the easiest for fans to get to.

B'Ham would most probably be the most profitable (?)...with Frisco 2nd, also an easy travel destination

Very happy we won homecoming, but I'm going to wait until it's a done deal and we get that 6th win. :mrgreen:

This Houston game is probably the BIGGEST game that Tulane football has faced in the past 10 years. I feel pretty confident that Memphis will take care of SMU....this Tulane team must rise to the challenge! I would trust that the coaching staff understands this and that the team won’t relax a bit thinking that they can still get a bowl by beating Navy. This game is a step to something that we have NOT had in a very long time!!

+1. Agree that it looks like Memphis will take SMU the next night. So let's take care of business.
