Re: Fritz speaks with Arkansas, Missouri up next

Has he left yet so we can have a new head coach who wants to be at Tulane and hasn't decimated recruiting this year by running off to talk with other programs before the season has not even ended? The more this goes on, the more I really do feel as though Fritz believes (1) that he cannot do more f...

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

This. Fritz leaving now says "well, i've done all I can do here, on to the next one". That can't inspire much confidence in a future potential hire No it doesn't. It screams "I've gotten noticed at Tulane and can double or triple my salary for my last few years of coaching before retirement." Also,...

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

I am please with the position Tulane is in (minus how they may adversely effect our recruiting class). We are no longer a dumpster fire or graveyard for coaches. If fritz leaves I feel confident in the candidates available and the ad. If he stays (which I believe he will) I feel good about our prog...

Re: Fritz speaks with Arkansas, Missouri up next

The issue is...should Tulane even want Fritz back even if everyone passes on him? He has indeed brought Tulane to back to back bowls and that should not be understated considering how rare that is for Tulane, but it appears as though he really does want to leave even if he was not the one that leake...

Re: 2019 Football Regular Season Recap

The 2020 schedule certainly isn't murders row, but Tulane fans can no longer have the (unreasonable) confidence that Tulane will win more than 6 regular season games under Fritz. Tulane is four years in with 2 6 regular season campaign win seasons, and, while that is certainly better than where Tula...

Re: 2019 Football Regular Season Recap

I'm super disappointed in the second half of the season. CUSA or AAC competition aside, our 6-6 regular season record leaves a lot to be desired. When are we going to turn the corner? When are we going to upset a ranked team? When are we as fans going to stop accepting mediocrity? This was year 4, ...

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

Fritz doesn't deserve a raise or extension based on this season. However, I wouldn't be opposed to a slight increase and one year extension, IF he can deliver the recruiting class that we have lined up. Wait until after the bowl game, and more importantly the early signing date, before deciding on ...

Re: Bowl Plans

As winwave pointed out, none of these matchups are set, and it's just one internet site making guesses. But our (the AAC) bowl tie-ins are very weak. And the AAC doesn't have a great track record in bowl games in the short history of the conference. But there's no reason we shouldn't be at the top ...

6 regular season wins with a possible bowl win depending on the opponent. I reserve the ability to revisit this after the FIU game, as that game should serve as a barometer for what to expect.
Yep, unless Tulane beats SMU.

Re: UCF Game Day Thread

No one realistically expected Tulane to defeat UCF - even the 2019 version of UCF - so it won’t be particularly disappointing if Tulane loses. It is starting to look more and more like a 6-6 season, which is a step forward in the sense of Tulane being bowl eligible in back to back seasons but it’s a...

Re: Temple Whips Tulane 29-21

There is certain bipolarism on this site.

With this schedule 6 years ago, we have 2-3 wins right now and are absolutely blown out in the...

I could see this up and down team coming up big next week against UCF. But today's game was an absolute downer.

Funny how we were told over and over before the season about how brutal our schedule was and now after nine games we've won 6 but are now told we haven't beaten anyone.

I’ve said this all year. All our 6 wins have come against teams that don’t have a winning record. The last 3 games gives us a chance to change that. This.

Re: What does success look like to you this year ?

As a preliminary matter, Fritz has consistently failed to meet fan expectations in regard to the fans on this board and any evaluation of the season has to done through that context. Last year, Tulane went 7-6. If Tulane goes 7-6 again (regardless as to how that record is achieved), it would be a gr...
