Re: Tulane Beats Nicholls St. 3-2

It was a nice win last night for the Wave. Well played, both teams had a runner thrown out at the plate early that should not have been sent home. The CF for Nichols I thought was the player of the game. He saved a bunch of runs with catches few players make. Our pitchers were gutty. I'm a bit conce...

Re: Four ACC expansion candidates to replace Fla. ST.

Seeing rumors online that Notre Dame is going to join the Big 10 since conference championships are heavily rewarded in the CFP. I haven't seen anything to that affect. ND's AD is on the committee and he was happy with the set up. They understand they don't play a CCG so they had no problem having ...

Re: Nicholls St. Game Thread

Our hitters need to step out between pitches and occasionally ask for time before he gets into his windup/delivery. Upset this pitcher’s rhythm. He’s in a groove and his timing is part of it.

Re: QB Ty Thompson

BTW: Many of us saw the interview of Sumrall discussing the QB's on the roster. He said we CAN WIN a lot of games with Kai Horton at Quarterback. He also said we can win a lot of games with Ty Thompson at Quarterback. That's a little different that Newman quoting him as saying we WILL win a lot of g...

Re: Going to be a long spring and summer for AD Harris

Newman, everything you just posted in the last post of yours is about scheduling football games. Not only is it information known already by all, but it’s totally irrelevant to the conversation about basketball games starting times. You’ve admitted the University, working in conjunction with ESPN an...

Re: ECU Crushes Hunter 81-67

I would not be at all surprised to see Hunter do well in the portal again this off season. Mark my words, we will hear that the 24-25 team is the most talented team he's ever had, and we will be calling for his job by the end of January once again.

Re: QB Ty Thompson

Newman, NOBODY doubts that Sumrall will do a deep evaluation and pick the best QB that gives us the best chance to win every week. Nobody has anointed either one the starter. But to compare pedigree, you're going to get arguments. Find another angle. We've seen Kai's HS BS a few dozen more times tha...

Re: 2024 Baseball Season

Just saw a well produced highlight of the 2023 Championship game shown during halftime on ESPN+. Very cool that the players got smaller versions of the AAC Championship trophy.. Maybe they believe in themselves as a result of that great weekend. Who knows? It’s a reason for optimism.

Re: Tulane’s hiring of Sumrall graded A+ the highest in all of CFB

The equivalent of if we had hired Lindy Infante in 1980 or Richard Rodriguez in 1998. Sumrall is a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ hire. Willie who? The Sumrall hire further solidifies our rising status and tells college football unlike for 1980 or 1998, this time we are serious. I could not agree more. It was the righ...

Re: AAC #7

The AAC will eventually bubble back up to the clear G5 leader. The reason is money. So long as the AAC is making considerably more TV money than the others, they will be able to hire better coaches, have higher recruiting budgets and get better TV access.
