USF Game Day Thread

Postby DfromCT » Sat Oct 21, 2017 8:03 am

I don't understand those that don't want USF and UCF going undefeated until they meet in the last game of their regular season. Of course, that is, unless we upset USF today. The better the top teams in the conference are, the better the conference does as a whole. Having them meet undefeated would mean both are knocking on the door of the top 10, with a chance one or both are ranked in the top 10. It would mean the game is on ESPN, and would draw national attention with them at 11-0 that late in the season.

But let's focus on today. Dino Babers, whom many felt was in consideration for the job that ultimately went to Willie Fritz, has beaten two ranked teams in his 1.5 seasons at Syracuse. Last week the Orange beat #2 Clemson. So it can be done! It's time for Fritz to get his first attention grabbing victory at Tulane. It's a tough game, but no team is unbeatable.

I know this was posted elsewhere, but this thread typically starts (in the wee morning hours) with a link to an Advocate or NOLA article. So here you go:

This is a winnable game IMO. I just don’t think we’re there yet. USF has more talent at this point. We’d need a score on defense or special teams to have a shot at the upset.

D- not sure where you see people not wanting USF and UCF to remain undefeated unless we pull the upset. It's quite obvious to all that that would be good for the conference.

Especially since neither are in our division. Everyone forgets, we're still 1-1 in the AAC West. No reason we can't still win the division. If Navy loses to UCF tonight, we control our own destiny.

In fact, a win would be huge for us, because most likely everyone else in division will get a division loss from either UCF or USF.

Unfortunately, the highlight of the day for Tulane will be the unveiling of Angry Wave on top of the scoreboard.

The thread you started earlier in the week, USF Game Thread, takes a turn, lead by Golfnut. It starts discussing these two not being undefeated would be good for the conference. I don't get that point at all, and for once you and I are in agreement.

It's a beautiful day in the Tulane neighborhood. Here's seven reasons to feel good about today:
  • Chance of rain diminishing from 70% at 4pm to around 20% at kickoff. Here's the WWL link including radar:
    http://www.wwltv.com/weather/
  • I just watched Tim Tebow's rousing pep talk and I'm ready to ask Coach Fritz to put me in:
    http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=21099025
  • The Angry Wave is making its debut. I'm looking forward to getting doused with cold water later in the season when the temp is in the 40s.
  • Today marks the return of the King as Shaun King returns to Tulane as a running back coach. Regrettably, he's not our running back coach.
  • The confused and confusing Russian brides picture-ads on gotula.net have been replaced with Victoria Secret underwear models. It would not be appropriate to provide pictorial reference as that could cause coronary events in some of our older forum members. In any case, I'm interpreting this as a very positive sign.
  • Tulane QB commit Patrick Shegog was selected game MVP as South Panola delivers another butt kicking 28-7 over SouthHaven. The future is so bright, I'm wearing shades.
  • These guys were practicing at Tulane. Good karma. Good for recruiting. A good feeling.

Ok, my mistake, I misread (after a night of constantly interrupted sleep) "don't we want" as "we don't want". My bad. But why argue when we're on the same view? Apparently Golfnut, who's Red Raiders are getting beat up at home by Iowa State this afternoon, feels the same way. I misread his post and then felt that people were agreeing with what I misunderstood.

Oh well, this mistake doubled the posts in the thread. I guess everyone is on the Quad or getting ready to go there. There's little activity on Game Day today on this board.

By the way, Lantern, I saw Curry's Daddy make many a shot with his sweet release at Fogelman in the early/mid 80's. That shooting touch started at least a generation before Stef.

ROLL WAVE!

Enjoy!

Here in Boston, I put on a long sleeve shirt for the first time this fall. Then when I got a few minutes outside, I discovered it's mid/upper 70's!

I wonder if the 2 for 1 ticket offer for today puts more fanny's in the seats? Someday we'll play with a true home field advantage. The stadium may be small, but it can be very loud since everyone is close to the field.

ROLL WAVE!

I don't think we had a sellout at Yulman...even at the first game against Georgia Tech, right?

No argument at all. Was just trying to clear up the misconception.

Looking forward to the wet T-shirt contest in the student section. Score Wave Score.

Being a Ga Southern fan right now must be like what we were when CJ was coach. They've lost a fumble on a kickoff, they had 12 men on the field on defense and STILL gave up a TD. At the end of 1st Qtr they're losing 28-7 to winless UMass.

Read about the background of the USF QB. Seriously, if there's ever a reason to root for a player playing against us, Flowers is one to tip your hat to.

Woody, how can you be a season ticket holder and NOT root Texas Tech? Hope all is well with you and the family. Sorry I misunderstood your post.

Bringing this post back on topic, look at the Navy QB's passing line vs. UCF (right now): 2 for 4 for 111 yards 1 TD 1 INT. Minus the INT, I'd take that through 2 1/2 quarters if we rush for 200 at the same time that would put us in a dog fight this evening.

The Angry Wave looks good. It is big. Some said earlier this week that it looked small after being put up on top the video board. Not the case at all. Now let's put that sucker to work.
