The AAC West is bad, but I'm still not confident that Tulane can capitalize on that. Navy, SMU, and Tulsa -should- all be wins given their poor performances so far, but, of course, that was said about UAB.

Even if Tulane won those games, it still would not be a "good" team.

Don't miss the bigger picture. Everyone has said players want to win. So in this case, if we can get to 6-6 and win a bowl game, we end up 7-6. Players don't see the underlying factors as much as we do. They would see a program were freshmen are playing and yet we've improved three years in a row and made a bowl game. That will help recruiting. And 20 years from now you'll see 7-6, and won't remember if it was a "good" 7-6 or a "bad" 7-6 team.
