It's been moved to Friday at 7:30. I love it. That will give people a chance to come out and see it. I know it conflicts with baseball but with the way things have gone plus the fact that football trumps all to most fans this is a good move.

Just terrible. I had an invite to a suite scheduled for baseball I wonder if my guy is going to cancel it. Dannen obviously hates baseball and pissed right in Jewett’s face. The Spring Game could have been played Sunday morning at 11am.

Not sure it could go to Sunday. You get 15 practices and a certain time period to conduct them. Baseball will probably have to play a DH on Sunday so conflict either way. Friday night gives the most people a chance to go. It should also pump the players up.

I think baseball will play Saturday evening. Rain expected in the am. Just wished I didn’t have to choose. If baseball plays two Sunday then I’d understand but I think we’ll play 4pm Saturday.

The coaches and AD don't have the luxury of knowing in advance if it will clear out. The chances for rain on Saturday are up to 100% after this evenings weather cast. If they believed it was going to clear up they would have gone with 4 for baseball and football at 7:30 on Saturday. None of us like choosing but like I said under the present circumstances it's a pretty easy choice.

LOL. If you come to the Spring Game @ 7:30, you can get a $5 ticket for the baseball game that starts @ 6:30...

Dome Stadiums, or those with retractable roofs, seem to solve this issue

Here’s why you’ll need to spend the $5 extra.
I buy a $15 ticket and go in at 6:30pm for the first innings then I scoot over to Yulman to watch FB at 7:30. Then I want to watch the end of the baseball game I’ll need another ticket because Tulane prevents re-entry.

Good point SM. You should pass that on to TD's office. It might not end up being an issue though. By the time the scrimmage ends it should be a point in the game where they are no longer collecting tickets.

Let's see here...why not sell one ticket to both games, and allow re-entry...one ticket, save some paper and a few trees...

Agree. That's why I suggested he contact the AD's office. Who knows maybe just posting it here might take care of it. IIRC there was situation earlier that we posted about changing the game time of one of our basketball games so fans could get home to watch the Saints game. They made the change. Don't know if you don't ask.

It was a nice mild night with low humidity and a light southerly breeze. There were refs of course. They also had the new digital sideline markers which gave you the distance to go after each play.

I got there very early as usual. The kickers were on the field and kicking using a ball holder. Glover did the following:

from 35 he missed left-from the middle of the field
from 43 he missed left-from the middle
from 44 he made it from the right hash
from 45 he hit the right upright- no good
from 49- good from the middle
from 52 he hit the left upright-no good
from 54-good from the right hash
from 40-good from the middle
from 40-no good-from the middle
from 33 on the right hash-good

Neenan-
from 45-good from left hash
from 47 -good from middle
from 49-no good-left hash
from 53-good from right hash

The QB's came out and Dublin was snapping to Banks
Knighton was snapping to Ledford
Leglue was snapping to Daniels

The scrimmage started with the one's v. one's from the 25 going north:

Huderson ran for 3
Banks hit Ledee for 8
Huderson ran for 3
Huderson ran for 6 to the left side
Banks hit Clewis for 8
Harris sacked Banks for 2 yard loss
Banks pass batted own by Graham


The two's came out:
Ledford at QB from the 20 going south
Bradwell for 2 up the middle
Bradwell for 1 up the middle
Incomplete

Banks in from the 36 going north:

Banks scrambled and hit a well covered Encalade for 47 yards, Monroe on the coverage.
Banks incomplete to Toles on the left side of the end zone
Bradwell for 7 up the middle
Bradwell for 2 up the middle
Bradwell stuffed on 4th down

Daniels in from the 25 going south
Fumbled a handoff but the defense was called for offsides
Pass to Ledee for 7
Dauphine for 4
Dauphine for 9
Incomplete to Clewis
No gain
Daniels for 3

Banks in from the 9 going north
Banks threw it away
He hit Clewis for 8
Huderson for 5
Banks hit Encalade on a slant and Encalade took it to the house for a 78 yard TD

Ledford in starting at the 25 going south
Bradwell for 6 up the middle
Ledford ran left for 1
Bradwell ran for 8
Ledford ran for 14 to the left
Threw incomplete to the right
Ledford ran for 3
Pass blocked by de'Andre Williams


Banks in

Scrambled for 2
Glenn ran for 11 and Patrick Johnson laid a big hit on him
There was a gain of 3 and they announced change of quarters
Dauphine ran for 7 for a 1st down and was hurt
Incomplete to Encalade
Banks scrambled and threw to a wide open Huderson over the middle but he threw it too low and incomplete

I haven't included this till now but when series ended they would just bring out a snapper with the punter and a return man as the only 3 on t field. Block then shanked one under those circumstances. Some things never change.


Daniels in from the 30 going south

no gain on a run
incomplete to Toles
Daniels sacked by Vault

Banks in- ball on the 35 going north

Dauphine ran to the 12
Banks for no gain
Banks ran for 7
A play took it to the 2
Dauphine ran for a loss of 2
Dauphin
lost 2 more
Johnson sacked Banks
Glover made the FG

Hurst came in for a series
The noteworthy part of that series was De'Andre Williams went down with an injury after having a good camp- didn't look bad though

Banks came in - from the 11 going south
He threw it away under pressure from the end zone for a safety
They put the ball on the 20 and kept the same units out there
Incomplete to Clewis over the middle who was well covered but the pass hit him in the hands and should have been caught
Incomplete low to Toles
Sacked by Johnson

Ledford in- 30 going south

Hit Toles for 16
Glenn ran for 2
pass to Ferony for 6
defensive penalty for 15 yards
Ledford ran for 2
pass to Newman for 7
Bradwell for 0 tackled by Walton
Ledford then ran for a TD

Daniels came in - 25 going south
Threw incomplete to the left Billy Kilmer knuckleball
passed for 3
overthrew Glenn
overthrew an open Jones over the middle

The ones on the offensive line for the most part were from left to right - McCleod, Jackel,Dublin, Briggs and Johnson
The two's were Claybrook,Webb,Knighton,Bratcher and Devon Johnson

On defense it was Johnson ,Sample ,Williams and Kennedy on the line with Harris and Graham at LB. The corners were Lweis and Monroe, safeties were Hall and Teamer and Barge was the NB

Dauphine has blinding speed. He seems to get nicked up but if he stays healthy he's going to be fun to watch. Encalade picked up where he left off. Mooney and Robertson are out with injuries.

The defense made some plays but then gave up some big plays.

The kicking game wasn't displayed at all. I didn't take that as a good sign.

It's hard to judge things b/c we know WF hates having the team watched.

I was hoping for more from the offense . The line issues persist despite some interviews which indicated things were better.

There were encouraging things on both sides of the ball and discouraging things.

Any catch the on the field interview Fritz did after the game. He confirmed that both Bowden and Rodriguez will attend the Nichols St game on September 8th to honor the 1998 team.

The game was confirmation as to how much trouble we are in if Banks goes down as both backups are not close to ready. Ledford looked shifty and could develop into a good option QB but passes weren't good. Daniels has good size and looks like he has a bright future but is no where close to being ready to come into a game.

You're welcome Houma. Glad you enjoyed it. I went home to start knocking the report out and missed the great ending too. Glad it didn't make you drive off the road.

Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.
