Wash. Rinse. Repeat. We look no better coached than any of our past several regimes.

28-0 and we are not halfway through the 2nd quarter and Tulane has yet to complete a pass.

Tulane has 23 yds of total offense and Memphis has 381.

We should just go full Army and be a triple option power that churns 6 or 7 wins and makes bowl games.

Massive ass licking underway. This is what you get when one school (Memphis) has no entrance standards, and the other school(Tulane) has arrogant and ridiculous artificial standards.

Good idea for this year. And let Brantley run the option. Our Ol dictates that we can only run an option offense.

We stink. Once again, Lucy pulled the ball away. Every fall we think it's going to be different. Then the ground comes up really fast and reality hits hard. We stink. And, of course, I'll be watching again next game for some reason God only knows.

I’m not. as a long time Tulane fan, I’m going to absorb all of this—with my traditional numbing agent of rum and coke of course.

Bowl eligibility is still on the table even with a loss here, so there is still a reason to watch the next game. A loss to ECU or Cincinnati after a loss here would be reason enough to stop watching for the season.

Look at our offense and try to imagine it simulating this Memphis offense. You can see how unprepared that would make the defense to defend Memphis.

That may be true (we being soft), but both teams are in the NCAA, as both teams are in the AAC, so we should be able to bring in the same players as Memphis, but we can’t because of arrogant and obsolete policies. Thank you Tulane for embarrassing your alums on national TV.

People post this two or three times a week. Our starters and 2nd, and even third team players don't try to stimulate the opponent. As a matter of fact, there's little time spent during the week with the starters on both sides of the ball playing against one another. What the Offense runs has little affect of how the Defense prepares. There's something called the Scout Team. And yes, they aren't anywhere near as good as the opponent, but every team runs an inferior scout team and rarely has the 1's going against the 1's full speed during the season.

And this outcome is NOT just due to admissions standards. We could beat Memphis like a drum for years with the same differential. We just haven't been any good in a long time.

Their athletes are much faster, and seem far more engaged in playing the game. Yes, coaching may be a big part of that, but at some point it comes down to the individual athlete.

I know. We've been worse than they have. There were years were both were REALLY bad, but Memphis has hired good coaches that even though they move on, they keep building. Norvell will be gone soon, and for good reason. Does anyone think Fritz is getting that P5 offer?

Franklin with the INT. A score before the half at least keeps interest.

Need a score to cut it to 35-20 or it's over.

Zero chance that WF gets an offer from anybody. But if he somehow did, he’s gone because he now realizes how effed up Tulane is.
