So far it's dry here in lower garden but some threatening clouds rolling in. Hopefully it stays dry but don't hold your breath. Let's bust some heads, mean greenies! Roll wave!

Tailgate will probably get rained out but game should be ok.

From the Weather.com site, it looks like the thunderstorms will end before 4 PM in Uptown New Orleans, with a chance of a passing shower at gametime. Then it looks to be typical New Orleans weather; hot and humid. The Weather.com (part of the Weather Channel) is not always accurate, but lets hope the game is played without downpours to hinder our home field advantage.

I hope we get a good crowd, despite the tailgating being a big diminished. Those headed for the quad, remember your mud gear!

Actually the humidity is supposed to go down just like it did last week. Should feel nice out there.

It's the only day in the year when it is not inappropriate to hope that a mighty Wave sinks the U.S. Navy.

One could say a rogue wave is coming in hot.

Is anyone on campus or in the stadium following this thread? If so, how's the weather?

Also, a last minute change to the green helmets. No combover wave, they went with Angry Wave again!

Did the Trump campaign get a cease and desist for the Crested T?

I love the Angry Wave, and am warming to it (though it still seems big) on the helmets. I just wish I'd get my lapel pin from The Green Wave Club!

Weather is nice no rain. Crowd not so nice I bet the threat of rain kept people away.

Brantley is looking like a true Frosh making his first start. I still want him in there ahead of Cuillette, but he's very green. I'd like to see us press the corner a bit more often, with his option to pitch or have a TE in the flats if the DB comes up to play the run. He doesn't need to go deep every throw.

7-0 Navy, but we're making some plays. On the plus side our O line is doing ok...opening some holes between the tackles.

What a great drive in response to Navy's long TD drive! Huge difference in coaching!

Checkerboards for Rounds! Wave kicks the extra point and it's 7-7!

Brantley is quick, no doubt! He also seems to have picked up the pitch play a whole lot better than either of the other QB's. I'm sorry, but if I'm Coach Fritz, I get him as many snaps against real competition as possible. It not only gives us our best chance to win, but also lets him get comfortable with the size/speed difference from last week to this week. If our season is going to ride on his shoulders, he needs experience.

Pass by Brantley was wobbly but it hit the receiver, inexcusable that he doesn't catch it. Stop looking for a PI and catch the damn pigskin!

The ball never reached the receiver, the defender knocked him a split second before he hit the ball away.

First half: advantage Tulane. We've forced them to go away from what they do best, which is the option. They've got 23 carries for 80 yards, about 3.5 YPC. They're 5-11 passing for 59 yards. If we can stick with our assignments, and clean up some of our own mistakes, we can win this.

On a side note, Wake Forest has 24 points at half this week. Of course, they're playing Delaware. 24-14 at half.
