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

I don't wish ill on Fritz. I don't understand why others cannot turn the page? He did more for Tulane football in my lifetime than anyone else. Do I think he's the greatest coach in the world? Hell no. I think he got a little lucky that, as he said after the Cotton Bowl, he rode the coattails of a f...

Re: CFP Goes for 5+7 System

Pretty soon there will be only two conferences...American College Athletics (SEC) and National College Athletics (big10) and will break away from the NCAA ....both will be 30 to 32 schools and will control their own "Championships"......ESPN, Exclusive Sports People Now, will control the ...

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. The 5+7 is reconfirming the G5 pro...

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: 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.

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.

The equivalent of if we had hired Lindy Infante in 1980 or Richard Rodriguez in 1998. Sumrall is a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ hire. Willie who?
