Re: Where are you Mr. Slatten?

What do you want him to say? Most likely there’s nothing remarkable going on outside of normal day to day stuff. The American Conference commissioner encouraged member schools to be open about realignment. Tulane is still mum and passive about it which would seem to indicate there are no great plan...

Personally, I still don't think Willie's style will do well in the Big 12. And especially in the minds of Houston fans.

Losing Gelsey is huge. A big thank you to the Tulane administration. Probably trolling, but he choose a P2 school in his backyard. He may not be so committed if Sun Belt Billy has another bad year. Excellent point. And I can't fault a player for staying near to family. The fact we were in the hunt ...

Re: Early Ranking by 247 for 2025 (104)

According to the recruiting services, Tulane has the 28th BEST average rating per recruit, which is the OVERALL quality of the recruits. If you recruit 40 players instead of 12, of course you'll have a higher total score. That's why you need to understand how to PROPERLY read the ratings.

Wichita is currently 15-11 in conference. That's an error. If they win or don't play tomorrow, WSU is 3rd seed. Only way we get 3rd is if Memphis can win. One positive is, everyone is available for Memphis, as this is their final game of the year.
