Bryant has already left Clemson looking to make a splash . He certainly would here .

Hurt graduates in a few dzys . He would certainly be a welcome grad transfer here .

Willie knows he needs to speak with both .

Looks like UCF might get an upgrade at QB if Milton isn't able to return.

They have gorgeous facilities and a nice stadium in the heart of campus that has the crowd on top of the field. UCF has this stomping tradition that literally gets their stadium rocking.

that happens when it is a steel stadium, errcted in the same fashion as the north end zone of old Tulane stadium, that is now the south end zone of Independence Bowl Stadium

Homecoming dance, I believe it was 1982, in the Hyatt (where I worked my Freshman year and refused Archie's autograph, but that's another story!). The Neville Brothers playing the huge ballroom, and the whole floor was rocking. It felt like waves! I knew that the Hyatt Regency in KC had a disaster of a walkway collapse and feared something bad was going to happen. I bailed, but not before a whole lot of deviant behavior in the bowels of the Hyatt, fueled by alcohol and ?? youthful savior faire??!!! Oh to be 20 years old again!

The first (and only) time I saw a game at UCF when they started the stomping it scared me. I've since been assured that they've had many engineering studies confirm that despite the rocking, the structure is perfectly safe. It's a wild experience, I hope a bunch of us are there this fall.

Are you saying that the stadium in Shreveport salvaged some of the original steel of Tulane Stadium to make an extension to the south end zone of Independence Bowl?? If so, that would be like how the Eiffel Tower restaurant on Saint Charles Ave. used some of the original Eiffel Tower parts stored in Paris to be shipped to NOLA for the top part of the current Eiffel Society Building.

The south end zone of the Independence bowl IS the north end zone of Tulane Stadium, it was unbolted shipped and rebolted in S'port...In 1987 Tony Sardisco, former Tulane All American and Board member of the Independce Bowl took Ken Berthelot and myself on a tour and showed us all of the expansion that was once part of Tulane Stadium...this was no "salvage" operation...it was taken apart in sections and then re-errected

Hurts isn't choosing Tulane over Oklahoma, Miami, TCU, or Maryland.

He's an upgrade over Mack, but certainly not over McKenzie Milton. I think that's what your post implied, Robert, but wasn't sure.

That UCF game at Yulman definitely just got most challenging. If we want more fans to show up to games uptown beat auburn or UCF next year and there will be 5-10k more people at subsequent home games.
