The Sun Belt will be the best G5 conference by a mile after this season.
Absolutely no doubt. That was true before this game. The MAC has outperformed the AAC.

Re: UMASS GameDay Thread

Was impressed by the improved tackling of the defensive backs. The linebackers continued their excellent pursuit & tackling. I was shocked by the lack of twitch from the entire defensive line. Maybe due to conditiong, or run heavy opponent. When we take a step up in competition we're going to ha...

HoustonWave, I think in the not too distant future you will see conferences of a select few teams. These teams will appear to being part of a universities athletic program. It will look the same, but behind the scenes there will be the presence of IMG who will actually run the daily operations of Me...

Anyone interested in what TD actually does say instead of harping on what he doesn't say, would do well to listen to his recent interview on The Current. It is really in depth. There were 2 things that I most noted. First, he indicated that conference alignment regarding payouts may no longer be eq...

Re: Fall Camp 2022

The inability of the offense to sustain any drives was disappointing, however, I don't want to read too much into it. Defense is always ahead of offense and they can certainly recognize formations and areas of focus from practicing every day. One thing that the offense has added and ran a lot were ...

Under Bowden/RR in 1997/1998 I didn't hear one person complain of the SuperDome as a venue for Tulane football. And, for the bigger games the students did make the less than 4-mile drive from Tulane's campus to the Dome. As Ed said correctly, Cowen "underfunded Tulane athletics." Under Co...

What happens when the highly feted recruit doesn't pan out? Will the boosters start showing up at 5:00 am to administer winter workout punishment sufficient enough for him/her to get on the bus out of town?
