Re: Fritz speaks with Arkansas, Missouri up next

When Coach Fritz arrived on Willow St he was beaming with confidence that he and Doug Ruse would implement their version of the "triple option" that proved to be so successful in the Sun Belt. After all in Statesboro they had quickly converted a Jeff Monken pure-play wishbone into a run heavy RPO j...

Re: Fritz speaks with Arkansas, Missouri up next

I honestly think that Willie is growing weary of "keeping the balls in the air". With the exception of the two newest offensive assistants & maybe one assistant on defense. I don't see a lot of energy, dynamics & creativity coming from his long serving coaches.
I hope I'm wrong.

Re: Fritz speaks with Arkansas, Missouri up next

I would really enjoy watching Willie Fritz and his long-time staff transition to positions in Columbia or Fayetteville. He has spent four years bringing order to the program and should be commended for that. If he was only able to attract more talented athletes his bags would already be packed. How ...

Re: Fritz speaks with Arkansas, Missouri up next

He’s done a “nice” job here so far, but he was supposed to take a big step forward this year and he took a small step back. That being said, he’d be crazy not to talk to SEC schools about a job opening. His salary would double at a minimum. If I were a fan at either school knowing what I know and s...

Silently talking to the SEC tells me you're savvy.

Advertising it tells me you're fucking done.

Best wishes to Fritz. Let him go, and find a guy who can keep us bowl eligible.

Re: Fritz speaks with Arkansas, Missouri up next

That article read like it was written by Fritz's agent! I am concerned by what that could do to our recruiting class. If he leaves Tulane, Fritz will leave a job that is started but far from completed. And I pity the AD that has to sell his alumni and donors a coach that's still considerably under ...

Re: SMU Game Day Thread

What you really see is a team that is good enough to make plays and be in the game but not good enough to make the big plays that win. We just don't have enough good players yet and a shaky QB. SMU bought this team. We need more players and a quality QB. But we've been running the triple option for...

After 4 years this team is basically talentless. We have one assistant coach who can recruit and it wouldn't surprise me if we lose him after his son leaves.

Re: Ole Piss

I am amazed that Matt Luke, Rich Rodriguez & Jon Sumrall ( now at Kentucky), didn't suffocate the entire Ole Miss team with their ever present screaming. Nothing promotes fear, insecurity & idiocy more perfectly than screaming.
The coaching carousel will be interesting this winter.

Listening to our head coach in his very own press conferences why would he think any differently?

Re: Bob Davie

At twenty nine years old Coach Davie was the best DC Tulane has ever had. Who stopped Andre Ware and the Houston Air Raid by countering with a 2-9 when with Coach Sherrill @TAMU? Three deep, six guys man-up and two d-lineman spying. Super creative on defense. His salary was 400k at UNM with some inc...

There are two good freshmen coming in. They should be groomed to play for four years. Need to stop looking for quick fixes at the most important position. Yes, there's no doubt the QB.is a very important position. But without great play from primary positions it doesn't matter who your QB is. The G...

Addition to football coaching staff.

In spite of his loyalty to staff, I think Coach Fritz would be wise to reach out to Lionel or Bob Davie to discuss the DC job. Coach Davie is on the hot seat at UNM. He is a fantastic DC. We all know what Lionel did under the Cowen/Dickson/Johnson nightmare. His performance was nothing short of stel...

Would really like to see a Hall offense with good OL and passer. Also need some quicker interior DL men.

Don't understand unwillingness to throw in the middle of the field. This team just not yet mature enough to win on the road. Agree. McMillan is a terrible passer . He has no touch. Normally you'd understand us throwing passes to the sideline so we can catch it and get out of bounds to stop the cloc...
