CJ has the bewildered look Scelfo and Toledo always had.

Someone bring a Lawn Chair out for CJ and maybe a Mimosa as well.

Unbelievable. They tackle our receiver, no call.

We dive for their RB and he steps out of bounds at the last minute while LeBeau is in the air and its a PF?

It's called the look of "I'm in Way Over My Head and I Have No Idea What's Going On". Tommy Bowden didn't have it.

Everyone and their Grandma knew #31 was getting the ball in the flat except our defense. Do we watch any film? They just ran that play for a TD.

Same exact play call as one of their earlier TD's.

CJ OUGHT TO SUSPEND HIMSELF FOR THE NEXT GAME. PISS POOR EVERYTHING.

I wish we would see more intensity from CJ. Even if you have no clue, at least LOOK like you do. College football is an emotional game. Get more intense. Show that you're pissed when the refs screw up a call or a player makes a bonehead play. You're not Tom Landry out there. The silent treatment won't work with today's kids.

ULM might beat us by 1000. Maybe 4-8 this year if we're lucky. I can't tell where those 2 wins are coming from either. It's not ULM or North Texas.

I subscribe to the belief that you can't learn on the job at this level. While you're learning and getting better, so is everyone else so you're constantly behind. CJ isn't some 35 year old whiz with a tremendous amount of talent and aptitude that has to figure some stuff out. He's in his 50's and been at every level, if he doesn't have it yet, he's not finding it. His best bet is to fire his defensive coordinators and bring in a guy who has it and basically let him run the team while he recruits. I don't think that'll work b/c we don't have the money to bring someone in like that, but this setup isn't working.


The difference in hiring a proven DC won't be the money. We found/are finding 70m for a stadium project. The issue will be finding a proven guy who wants to coach defense at a non-BCS school.

This year still feels like 5-7 to me. Which was in the region of 5-7/7-5 that most predicted.



BS, we haven't come up with any of the money for the stadium, its all donations. We are paying CJ $600K which is absurd for a Div 1 Football Coach. The University still hasn't proven they are willing to invest in the football program or basketball program.


Donations pays for everything. No school funds athletics out of their general fund beyond a subsidy to balance the books. Everything else is just steering donations.

How do you think we were going to pay any big time coaches salary if we were going to get one? It's all just moving one pile of donations to another.

I'm done, time to head to the bar for the LSU game. Can't watch any more of this B.S. Go to hell Rick Dickson.

I had us 5-7 and that looks like a stretch now. I'm watching N. Texas and they are a better football team than us. I had us beating them. Don't see that now.

So, who's got the guts to go to NOHSC on Wednesday night and ask CCJ why he doesn't show more intensity and why the same mistakes are being made over and over? What's being done to change it?

Montana is a tough kid. He has taken a pounding today.

Almost positive montana took a hit to the head on that 3rd down.

Udzavinis back on the bench, Henry is at C and Montana is getting hit worse than ever.

If this team doesn't make a bowl game this season, it won't happen anytime soon.

At some point these lineman need to look inside and find some heart. I just don't see it right now.

Syracuse with 8 men in the box, and we still can't find an open receiver.

That is true.

But I can't help but go back to what I keep trying to stress in that back at the time there were those who were running around looking to assure one and all that "this is going to be different..." and that TU was for once ready and willing with a wide-open checkbook.

Ergo, if you say, as you insist that this time you definitely were going to be bringing in, Curtis Johnson is The Coach Who Is Going To Do Big Things at TU and that now things truly are different w/r/t TU's commitment to win games then you pay him accordingly. And then also if the team doesn't win he's out with no time being wasted.

The truth=regardless of the talk not much has changed. Same so-so commitment to winning. Same cheapskate approach to paying coaches and then probably also the same notions w/r/t holding onto a coaching regime through the length of the contract. The people doing all of the "this time is going to be different..." talk at the time were either knowingly telling a falsehood or else didn't have a clue.


Tulane sports: small football stadium, very small basketball arena, w̶i̶n̶n̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶g̶r̶a̶m̶s̶, h̶o̶n̶e̶s̶t̶y̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶a̶c̶c̶o̶u̶n̶t̶a̶b̶i̶l̶i̶t̶y̶ , but, hey, now there's tailgating.
