Re: UC-Irvine Series Thread

Their game against San Diego last night was canceled for some reason, so they'll be fully rested. 3-0 on the season so far, a sweep of North Dakota State, for what that's worth.

Re: CFP Goes for 5+7 System

What still blows my mind is why ANY G5 conference rep would vote in favor of the 5+7, knowing it reduces the chances for their own schools? You know their goal is to eventually eliminate all G5s from the playoff. So why keep giving in so easily? STAND YOUR GROUND.

Re: Tulane Wins the Northwestern Series

Real test comes this week. Important to beat Nicholls on Tuesday, and if we can win the series this weekend that would be something. UC-Irvine started the season ranked #25, and swept North Dakota State this weekend so they'll move up. They play San Diego on Tuesday before coming here.

Re: QB Ty Thompson

Kai was a mid level 3 star recruited by G5 schools.

Ty was the highest rated QB recruit EVER at one of the top Power 5 programs in the country.

Massive difference.

Re: Up next Athletes paid Employees potential Unionization

I still think that ultimately the Universities will demand to know what their return or benefit is to giving a scholarship if they are forced to pay or buy players. Accepting a scholarship will come with a waiver that limits compensation in some way. Agreed. Because there is some value to the educa...

Re: February NSD Class of 2024

I referred to Rivals. Try reading what you are responding to. As to 247 it gives out stars like candy. To be fair though, its still consistent, so a 4 star at 247 is better than a 3 star at 247. In fact, one could say 247 is more accurate. Its a lot easier to distinguish between two players. Both c...

I will say this, I just went and looked at 247s composite recruit rankings for Tulane the last few years. In Willie's last two seasons, we had an average of 84.21 and 84.20.

They were pretty good, but against middling opposition. 8-1, averaged close to 40 pts a game. Erik played in 5 of the 9 games, 9 catches for 130 yards and a TD. Definitely a development project.

Yes, it is. He visited during the UTSA game. It said in a previous tweet that it was a PWO offer.

Guess since his parents are paying $73K a year for HS, they can easily afford to be out of pocket for tuition at Tulane.

Hun School of Princeton

Co-ed boarding school. 669 students, 95 teachers, or a 7:1 teacher student ratio. Tuition $73K a year. Maybe his family will become NIL donors.
