Re: Will Hall

Fritz found Hall, and he can find a replacement that keeps our offense spread out and balanced. Nothing surprising about Hall moving on to a HC position. I'd be very surprised if Fritz didn't already have a short list of replacements, for both coordinator positions--hopefully he'll pull the trigger ...

Re: Vandy fires Mason. List includes Fritz

I agree with winwave. Willie has a great PR agent. Willie had boosted our program fro the bottom to the middle but has yet to prove he can win at the top of the AAC. You’d probably see similar results if he were hired at Vandy facing better competition in the SEC. Vandy is a cush job. No one expect...

Re: Vandy fires Mason. List includes Fritz

When Fritz's agent starts trying to use these job openings as leverage, I hope Dannen doesn't even answer the phone call.

Re: Lipscomb Game Thread

We tried to give it away in the final two minutes, but hang on for a 2 point win, over a pretty good Lipscomb team. We have a lot of room for improvement.

Re: Bowl Projections

Latest bowl speculation, from CBS Sports Jerry Palm, has Tulane playing San Jose State in the New Mexico Bowl. Not sure if that requires a win over Memphis, or not.

Re: Changing the Narrative

Tulane coaches who have turned the program around have done so within two or three years--Larry Smith, Mack Brown, and Tommy Bowden. Technically, Fritz has also done this, although not to the same degree that Smith and Bowden did--but the biggest difference with Fritz is that he's still here. We all...

Re: Will Hall

He doesn't make 8-10 questionable calls a game. The plays have been there all along. The execution hasn't. Jaxman thinks it's 8 or 10. It may be fewer per game, but every game has been marked with some questionable play-calling--which among other things should take into account what your offense ca...

Re: Should Tulane pick a sport to dominate in?

What I mean by this is that there are a few P5 programs that found balance by first building a "bread and butter" in either football/basketball, and then moving to focus on the other sport later. Tulane seems to financially be in a middling position (7th-9th in budget last I checked) - so we have e...

Re: Will Hall

Two years was the O/U when Hall arrived. Hall has been a huge improvement over Ruse, but Fritz found Hall, and he can find another up and comer. 8 to 10 questionable play calls per game is a lot--and can easily make a huge difference in a game. Beyond specific play calls (which might have been on Ha...

I've been blabbering this for years, Fritz is good at everything except coaching in the game. He has no feel for it, instinctually it's just not there. I don't know the answer to that, I know that I am a bar owner and I could've guided that team home up 14-0. Why are our defenders running full spee...

They will see it multiple times. It’s an “Instant Classic” one of many we are on in a losing finish.
It's all over the sports news this morning. The "miracle" in Tulsa--by a 3rd string QB. :shakingno:

Re: Tulaned Again, Tulane loses to Tulsa 30-24

One thing is for sure—Fritz has put together an impressive collection of classic losses. Has any Tulane coach,
ever, found a way to lose more games in such agonizing ways?
