Re: California lawmakers voted to let NCAA athletes get paid.

The NCAA can lose the PAC 12, and it isn’t really losing a “P” conference. If the PAC 12 is removed from championship play, the other PAC 4, and some of the better G5 schools can readily fill any void that the PAC 12 might leave. Let the crazies in California play with each other. I don't think the...

Re: California lawmakers voted to let NCAA athletes get paid.

If this spreads throughout the country, it will be chaos in the collegiate ranks. No way the NCAA , schools, or anybody else can control the bidding war for athletes. There could be many interesting outcomes— would a 5 star recruit want to go to a football factory if he’s likely to only be the 4 th...

Re: California lawmakers voted to let NCAA athletes get paid.

doesn't mean much, imo. California says its ok to pay the players. Doesn't mean the NCAA does. These teams are still beholden to NCAA rules. Doesn't affect Tulane or anyone else until something is passed federally because right now it's just posturing. The teams are, but, if the law is enacted, the...

Re: Tulane loses to Auburn 24-6

Tulane will be good this year and can hang with top opponents. I can see 9-3 easily and we won't face a D-line like Auburn again, though dropped passes were just that. 9 wins possible but unlikely. The schedule has a lot of toss up games and to win 9 we’d have to win all of those. These AAC road ga...

Re: Tulane loses to Auburn 24-6

I will say this. I hope we enjoy the $1.9M check, because I guarantee you no other school is going to give us that kind of money to play them ever again. We're good enough now that its too big a risk. +1, we are a “cup cake” no more, and P5s can’t count on Tulane’s quarterback having a 50.5 rating ...

Re: Auburn Game Day Thread

Tulane needs to find a way to score as the defense will likely eventually wear down.

Re: Auburn Game Thread

After seeing Auburn in person, Auburn did not perform that well in game 1, and I'm of the opinion that Oregon lost their game by becoming more conservative on offense in the second half than Auburn won it. If that was indeed the case, Tulane may have a fair shot at winning as long as it does not mak...

Re: Auburn vs Oregon

It’s not about being good, in order to get P5 TV contracts. It’s about having a lot of fans, big attendance, and even bigger TV audiences—that’s what ESPN and any other outlets want. Wins are fine, but fans are even better. The wins bring fan bases. Hopefully. But Boise St. has been winning for a l...

It’s put up or shut up time. Fritz has consistently underperformed the general expectations of this board, and this is his chance to finally meet these expectations.

Re: My biggest concern

Is that in an attempt to excel in the passing game, we lose our identity as a running team resulting in an mediocre offense caught in between philosophies. And that we find out that our QB excelled last year because we established the running game which caused lots of one on one man defense played ...

I hope we're competitive. I just wonder what Auburn was thinking offering us that much $$? There are...

The Beau Rivage sports book is offering Tulane -2.

Re: Tanner Lee

The fact is if Tanner Lee wasn’t white, he wouldn’t have been drafted. He just fit the prototype because otherwise he was pedestrian in college. A black QB with similar numbers in college would have never been drafted. Agreed. There is no way he would have been drafted if he was a different race gi...

It dominates Louisiana recruiting of course but it recruits at least half of it's scholarship players from out of state. The numbers are what they are. Exactly.
