Not that we ever really had a shot with him but interesting that he stuck with Kansas of all places.http://www.theadvocate.com/new_orleans/ ... dd48a.html

Interesting especially with all the so called “Insiders” saying he was definitely not going to Kansas.

I think the beauty of the "sun flowers" in bloom...were too much for Tulane to overcome

I have no idea what could have attracted this young man to college football oblivion. One more example of the mysteries of the mind of an 18 year old.

The ex Warren Easton coach Tony Hull recruited Pooka. He was back here during the playoffs looking at the Destrehan running back John Emery who will be a senior next year

In spite of all of the hoopla, Pooka is only rated 3 stars by both 247 & Rivals.

Same as Lindsey Scott but we're still talking about him a lot.

But seriously, the way Pooka Williams ran through the playoffs in the state's highest classification was dominating until he got hurt in the title game. If he can stay eligible he should do very well.

I know its your job, but doesn't it have to feel conflicting in your heart when you're from the NOLA area and you're telling a kid from the NOLA area how great things are in Kansas?

Exactly. Relationships early on.

Texas and Texas A & M decided not to offer him, probably reputed academic issues and 5'9" height were factors. Another factor may be Herman's class is so "stella" at UT, but Jimbo has still only signed 14 @ A & M?

The only actual signing offer he had was Kansas. LSU was recruiting him but didn’t offer him to sign early. He supposedly has his ACT score but needs some core grades this spring. I’m sure he’ll eek by, can’t let the legend fail. :roll:


Strange coincidence—-Baylor signed a Kid with almost identical numbers, same size, named Williams and also has a different type nickname “Sqwirl”. Herman and UT went at him hard the last month and even showed up at his house Wednesday after being told no thanks that day. He signed with BU Thursday.

Should we go after Pooka?
Suspended indefinitely for domestic battery

Williams was named the Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year after rushing for 1,125 yards and seven touchdowns.

Nope, in this the MeToo era & NFL scandals for domestic abuse, I doubt if even Florida State will go after him.

If he qualifies academically - yes, Yes & YES.
He can pursue a hyphenated liberal arts degree.

Let's see here; sketchy academically-wise AND a domestic battery charge.

Offering him would definitely prove Tulane's commitment to big-time, winning football.

Tulane in the past allowed a convicted murderer to remain in school but these days domestic abuse is worse than killing someone. So I doubt we’ll see that.
In case you missed the convicted murderer story a few years ago:

I remember seeing about 20+ years ago on a national TV show like Carson/Leno ,a gentleman whom had served his time for bludgeoning to death a college PROF whom he felt was always giving him unfair grades on purpose to prevent him from acquiring his PhD. Anyone vaguely remember this? The man had longhair and beard and looked like Grizzly Adams to boot.

I remember it being a USC psychology professor. I believe he was stabbed to death inside his office by the student.

No, this happened at Stanford in 1978: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodore_Streleski
