I was there and I marveled that we actually did not come up short. I go back to the Tulane-LSU game when Steve Foley was the QB. With no time outs left we drove down to near the goal line. Our running back was stopped JUST SHORT of the goal line as time ran out. It was the next year that we beat them 14-0. But I always think back to all the times when we came up SHORT.

Pass was on the RB's back hip which allowed their LB to stop him. If it hits him in stride we win.

Gutsy fourth-quarter and not playing for the tie shows that this may be a different team. I truly believe that most of these kids grew up in the first half of the Oklahoma game last week.


My thoughts exactly. Congrats to the coaches and players.

I think OUG pretty much summed it up. Banks was still hurting coming in, and he got really clocked on that 4th down play early in the last drive. I was actually surprised to see him back in the game after only one play. Tells you how much the guy wants to win, and you know that will make the rest of the offense want to play that much harder. He took a few extra shots on that drive and hung in there. On some of his scrambles no receiver was getting open, but you can see how he's able to extend plays. The bye comes at the right time for us. Lets get healthy and prepare for Tulsa, who just lost at home to New Mexico, 16-13. What happened to their explosive offense?


It should be a sin to host a Day game at Yulman in August/September. It was unbearably hot.



Dude, you're not kidding. It was brutal. I had to spend the 4th quarter underneath the Westfeldt Terrace cover. Couldn't stay in the seat. Don't know how chain gang x man works the sidelines in that heat.

Plenty Gatorade :lol:

on his hip and slightly behind....the play happened going into the north end zone on the right hash mark....if memory serves the RB was Russell Huber....The LB for LSU might have been Mike Anderson, but I am not sure.....I was sitting in the North End Zone row 20, the play happened right down my sight line...after the game, and there were many LSU fans around, they commented 'things have really changed"...I asked one what he meant by that...he told me," the attitude of the Tulane Team and Fans, they are not going to put up with losing anymore"

It was Russell Huber who caught the pass. It was Frank Racine who made the hard tackle at the 1. I was devastated sitting right there in the north end zone. I later met Racine's parents and complimented their son on that good tackle. They were nice, stand up folks.

I can still see that play in my brain today. So close. We really dominated them more in ‘72 then probably ‘73.

While I agree that this should be the case, it hasn't happened yet since Army isn't in the AAC, but, that being said, Tulsa is looking pretty rough right now so that should (hopefully) be a conference win in two weeks. That Tulsa game plus FIU, ECU, and Cincinnati is all that Tulane needs for 6.

Last Note, seriously last note. As of this game, Mr. Teamer is now #2 in the nation in sacks with 7 and I see Luke Jackson on there at #14. Agent P is 14th in the nation with 2 ints. http://www.espn.com/college-football/statistics

On Foley's long run down to the 4, he actually could have stepped out of bounds about the 10 and given us a chance at 2 or 3 plays at scoring, but he cut back to try to score himself. The clock did not stop on first downs back then and clocking the ball by throwing it quickly to the ground was not allowed. You had to throw it out of bounds to stop the clock. There weren't enough seconds on the clock to do that so Tulane hurriedly ran to the line and quickly ran that last play which may have contributed to the pass being a little behind the RB, causing him to break stride allowing for the tackle.
It was my Jr year and as the last play was run I sprinted down to the fence surrounding the field to rush the field had we scored. I watched the last play from field level way down at the other 20 yard line so thought when the pass was completed we had tied it. Couldn't believe we threw the pass short of the goal line. My fraternity brother David Falgoust would have kicked the XP to win that game and become a legend in Tulane football history. Instead, Terry Looney and Darwin Willie became just that the next year.
To go along with what another poster said, the Tulane defense was more dominant in the 1972 game sacking All American QB Bert Jones a number of times sending him and their vaunted passing game to the bench. Their backup QB Paulo Lyons came on in that game to run the option and led LSU to 3 FGs if my memory serves me correctly.

Just went to the internet and found my memory wasn't quite correct the story says Foley stepped OB before the final play. I could swear he cut back in at the ten resulting in a scramble to get the final play off, but then again, I'm old.

I'd say our D in '73 was better as it pitched a shut out.

I found this quote telling:

Tulane ranks fifth out of 12 teams in the American Athletic Conference in yards allowed and sixth in scoring defense.

Now throw those numbers out because they mean next to nothing.

After facing two triple-option teams in Navy and Army, loaded national championship contender Oklahoma and Grambling of the FCS, the Green Wave defense will find out good it is in the next eight weeks. The first four games were all outliers against opponents with styles or skill levels Tulane will not see again.


Really like having 2 separate seasons.

That's why a lot of us have said you can't really judge where we are until we play teams that reflect what most opponents would be. We played 4 outliers in our first 4 games. And we produced about what we expected. Now lets see what happens the rest of the season.
