I haven't seen anyone mention it on the board. But again CJ is starting spring practice super early. Starts today.

Well, absolutely NO Recovery time from M/G! I wonder how many players will be losing their M/G cookies during the first day of SFB practice.

Good news and bad news from the first day. LaFrance is suspended b/c of academics. Leondre James is suspended for violating team rules.

The good news is that Corey Redwine chose to come back and provides depth at DT.
Yulman is where Tulane athletics went to be buried! Tulane is small time for all time. It's time to put Tulane athletics in it's small space in life.

That's a big boost for the DT rotation. He's a solid rotation player and should have his best year.

Good news.

Hopefully, Tulane actually uses its full allotment of spring practice days this year. Lord knows they need them.

Heck, rather than cancel the last three like he did last year, I'd like to see three practices dedicated to Special Teams. Ours were anything but special.

And of course those three practices that weren't used couldn't have helped a redshirt freshman Quarterback. Although, with the offensive coaching I'm not sure 100 practices would have made a difference. We will find out in September. I am so tired of CJ's spin that he's learned from Tricky Rick. I don't see any significant improvement next fall with Lee and the Price brothers.

In the CJ area, this has to be the least anticipated spring practice.

I see we are still missing field goals as well.

I think CJ mentioned that if you score TD's you do not need FG's

Lee needs to stop throwing INT's in the process. The throws too good of a ball to throw so many picks.

Can our quarterback coach with CJ turn our heralded Jesuit quarterback's career around after almost leading the nation in interceptions last year and Tulane to a disastrous three win season?

I do not place too much into FB spring practice. All it is for is to keep these FB players from gettting too much out of shape. In south La., let's face it, the primary mission is to sweat out all of the 'Mardi Gras junk' that these players consumed at the parades.

Still no kicker.
Tulane’s kickers continued to struggle in Monday’s workout, with Andrew DiRocco and Trevor Simms combining to miss five of eight field goals during a drill once they moved out of chip-shot range. Said Johnson: “I don’t know who’s the starting kicker right now. It may be me. We gotta get some guys to kick the ball through the uprights.”

God I hope we can win some games this season because this is the weakest spring football practice we have seen in the CJ era. No excitement at all!

Bad time to hold it if you're trying to get any attention. You have college and pro basketball closing in on the final stretch and college baseball in the beginning stretch. Spring football is off the radar. Maybe that's good after last season.

Regarding Spring Practice :... I think next years Spring Practice will draw a great deal of interest...of course the FIRST Spring Practice of a NEW Coaching staff always does

New coaching staff.....That's probably what should happen, but Tulane athletics operates without any accountability, so CJ's seat is ice cold.

Another three win season coming up. No bowl game. CJ paid by Dickson over a million dollars a year for this! Sad! Our recent T ulane recruiting class was the fourth best in Louisiana after LSU a@m,U La La and La. tech. Not good. Bring back Buddy Teevens or better yet Tommy Bowden with Coach Rod. Fire Dickson,Conroy and the Prices now! Maybe CJ also!
