Re: Tulane MBB vs USM

Tulane nearly made this a nail-biter. They didn't make a FG in the last 4 minutes of the game. USM narrowed the Wave's 13 point lead to as little as 4. Fair crowd at USM. I asked two USM fans if the crowd size was typical and both replied that from two years ago, attendance had been reduced by half...

Re: 2019 Football Regular Season Recap

To me the biggest problem was the lack of a reliable passing game. As stated by many, McMillen was not a good passer in accuracy or touch. There was also a lack of good pass catchers. Maybe that's on the coaches for not getting better receivers, but if kids decide to sign somewhere else, there's not...

Regarding Ona Embo, Coach Hunter made it very clear during the situation with Caleb Daniels, "I don't have anything to say about anybody who doesn't want to be here."

Re: SMU Whips the Wave 37-20

It's easy just to claim we were "outcoached" every time we lose a game. Is it outcoached when the other team just has better players? To me, being outcoached means you have clearly better players and lose. Every time this year that we had better players, we won... decisively. We lost some on the roa...

Re: SMU Whips the Wave 37-20

this is the first team in the fritz era that didn’t improve throughout the season. That I dont like . I am just not sure you can say that given the schedule we had. Our competition in the first 6 games went 27-43. For the last 6 games they were 51-20. That's a huge difference. Two had double digit ...

Re: Lack of QB

If either Ibieta or Pratt is eligible to graduate in December and be enrolled in the Spring, that would greatly improve the chances that one can contribute as a freshman (assuming they both stick with us). Anyone know if that's the case?

I've not seen too much of our back up from USM. However, he may not be as elusive as McMillan, but he has to be more accurate.

Speaking of USM, I love their QB Abraham.....
That's Howard. I think he is not much more accurate. I suspect next years' starter is not yet on the roster.

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

I bet Hall will get an offer. Not his fault Fritz can’t find a QB. Let's hope we have a quality QB coming. That definitely has held this program back. The years when they tried and could not get a quality running QB turned into wasted years. To Fritz"s credit, he realized it and changed but they st...

Re: SMU Game Day Thread

The muffed punt and the dropped TD pass are what changed the game. If Jones were 100% healthy, he would probably be returning punts. We need a few better players. Laughable analysis. Try again. To think those 14 points were not significant int the 17 point loss is either ignorant or you are just an...

Why did he throw it into the stands on 4th and 3? I am done with Will Hall. He thinks he's smarter than he is. He doesn't understand situational football. You think that was what Hall called? It was a go route and the WR didn't run the route due to communication failure. But I can't blame Hall for ...

Our offensive efficiency numbers are way better this season compared to last year. This year we’re 28th while last year we were 79th.
Of course things are better. Teams with bad coaching staffs don't keep fighting back.

Re: SMU Game Day Thread

I’d like to see a team, talented or not, that can stop committing stupid penalties and basic mistakes— catch a pass, catch a punt, throw the ball away rather than taking a sack. Basic stuff—coaching stuff. Yeah, it's a bad coaching staff that's the problem. We should fire Coach Fritz. He's a loser.

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.

FWIW: Joey Galloway, whom is 20-5 on his "lock picks" this year, just picked SMU -3 over Tulane on ESPN.

He said the score may be 65-60, but SMU will cover.
