Re: AAC gets NCAA Waiver

I know this is extremely unpopular given UConn's decision to leave the AAC. But would it be the end of the world for UConn to remain in the conference for football only until we find a better fit for that 12th slot? I know a few posters are going to attack this post. I am NOT a UConn fan, and have N...

Re: Post game interviews

What's the point when our coaching staff has no other explanation than "our players got beat frequently & at most positions" You don't hear any mea culpa's coming from the staff because it wasn't their fault. I'm curious. Why are the coaches off the hook for the team playing like crap? Enlighten me...

Re: Navy Game Thread

Although some of you have allowed that Memphis beating change your mind about how good we actually are, we are still a very dangerous team. Those of us that have seen every game know that we didn’t play like we have been playing all year on last Saturday. We weren’t healthy and ran into a team that...

Re: Line Closes ⬇️ to Memphis 2 pts. > Wave

I'd bet the "smart money" is off the Wave for the rest of the season. Those bettors lost a boatload betting on Tulane this week. Made them look like dumb money. The line will probably be inflated the next couple of weeks in the other direction, and probably be more accurate. We've beaten nobody wort...

Re: Line Opens Navy 3.5 pts. > Wave

Let's hope the McMillan that knows how to play football shows up. He was terrible at Memphis last week, and we all know he can play a whole lot better. Another game like Memphis and we'd best be putting Keon into the starters role.

Re: AP Top 25

If I were a voter, I wouldn't have a vote for the Green Wave after that performance. We looked like a 40-80 ranked team more than an top 25. And that might be VERY generous. We stunk the Liberty Bowl up yesterday. Literally, we were horrible. And it SHOULD take a few consecutive wins (which are in H...

Re: Memphis Dominates Tulane 47-17

We looked like crap. MSU had the best 5 players on the field almost every play, and we're NOT without talent. We just didn't play well in any phase of the game. I got so disgusted I couldn't watch a good portion of the second half. If we don't play better (and clearly we can play better) we won't wi...

Re: Memphis Dominates Tulane 47-17

If we don't play a whole lot better, we won't win another game. It's not that we lost, it's how poorly we played. Our D couldn't get off the field (and yes, there were some phantom calls, but they didn't determine the outcome of this game.) We showed that if we go out and play poorly, we not only lo...

Re: Memphis In Game Thread

Our D cannot stop them. We lose by 30 (or a whole lot more) if this continues. We need a few 3 and outs to get back into the game, but have shown NOTHING to indicate we can do so, down 34-10 at the half. Memphis: 5 possessions, 5 Touchdowns.

For me, this is the most anticipated game since we opened Yulman. And it's even more important.

Mods: can we fix the countdown clock to reflect a 6 PM CST kickoff?

It’s crazy that Memphis and UConn have massive acts Performing at their midnight madness events (Snoop dog & Tpain). Hopefully we can have better acts in 3-5 years.

I predict we have more wins by Christmas this year than all of last season, and we have at least 2 conference wins by the end of January. We might not get to the NIT but this team will work hard and compete a lot more under Coach Hungar than we have seen Tulane Basketball do so in a long time. ROLL ...

Re: Who's next if we lose WF and Hall

Anyway.... There are reports that Rutgers has zeroed in on Mississippi State's head coach. It honestly seems as though he would be a better fit in the Big 10 than in the SEC, so that may work out. However, that being said, it is hyper-rare for a P5 team to hire a sitting HC from another P5. For a s...

Re: Memphis Game Thread

I'd feel better if McMillen were a little more accurate passer. He definitely looks better running than passing. I hear what you're saying and agree. But he's also a streaky passer, and when he's hot he's tough to stop. But I worry as Memphis may have the most talented secondary he's seen to date. ...

Probably not a popular opinion on here, but I like huderson in that punishing ball carrier role. Not as big as bradwell but he likes contact and runs hard .
I agree. I think Huderson is more physical, like Bradwell, and Jones and Dauphine are burners that do better on the edge.

Each conference team would play an 8 game conference schedule. Instead of UCONN, another conference member. Along with 4 OOC games, the total is still 12.
It's not that difficult, as GretnaGreen points out, for the AAC to simply schedule each team 8 conference games.

No one said the topic shouldn’t be discussed. However, a response that it’s a bit premature at this point is very valid. Don’t start a thread asking a question if you only want to hear from those who agree with you.
Exactly!

Commenting that it's premature is part of the discussion.

Re: Basketball Uniforms 2019-2020

Maybe if the Wave was not pointing at the crotch they'd be better? wave97, you are right, they are worse than those old ugly helmets. Take the waves off the shorts, put a small Angry Wave on one leg, and move on. But please don't take the court with these shorts.
