Hope that's not the same source that said Spoon was the next coming on the mound. :mrgreen:

On a serious note it's good to hear. He'll have better coaching than Tanner got but the offensive line play still needs to improve for Banks to have a chance or any of our QB's for that matter.

Tanner Lee didn't have it. Good coach or bad coach, the kid stunk up the joint. Hopefully, Banks shows improvement. The kid at least has wheels.
Banks is gone, you're responding to a post from 2 years ago.

That's saying a whole lot. I'm not ruling it out as a possibility, and hope Pratt takes that big step up we all hope for and borderline expect.

Thanks for the link. Hoping he comes out of the OU game fully healthy. Looking forward to seeing how much Horton can learn from him over the next three seasons.

Will be a strong Competition don't think Kai will sit the bench for three years keep ignoring experts both Rivals and 247 Sports have stated reasons why Horton was under radar and how good a prospect he is. Keep ignoring experts articles, I will have last laugh!!!

Let's cut the BS about the Mannings loving Coach Fritz and Tulane .

They love us soooo much Arch won't even say the word " Tulane " let alone have an official visit let alone play for us .

Time for the Mannings to end their BS ....

No shit sherlock. This is not an indictment on the Mannings. He's a top QB in the country. Plus, he probably doesn't want to sit the bench for 3 years.

I'm just curious, Pete. This kid could go to literally any college in the country and you have your panties in a bunch because he isn't considering us. Why should he choose Tulane? Do we contend for national championships? Are we an NFL pipeline? Are we rich in tradition and have a rabid following? Why should he ignore every other opportunity out there? Let's hear your pitch. I hope you have something better than his family has gotten rich in New Orleans so they owe us.
God Bless Everyone!

I’ll take a quick shot at it:

In the city that his father’s father and his fathers family has brought to greatness- in the arena that matters most to his home town and region he wishes to not only continue the legacy but to surpass their’s- How ? Bring the hometown perennial uptown underdog, where he and his family were born, to national relevance, win the heisman, become the 1st round draft and play for the hometown Saints. Along the way national endorsements via prominent Southern and global alumnae come in droves as the school is a national underdog story that takes over the news cycle. Stadium expansions, major Donars and an invitation to join the Big 12 and the SEC come as the next round of realignment takes place and the sleeping giant has been awakened. Tulane shoots up into the top 20 on us news report and Scott Cowan death yawp is heard around the globe. As Arch’s career comes to an end he can look at his family and smile as he exceeded all of their legacies . . . At that moment his own son begins to dream of how he could eclipse it himself.

That's a great Hollywood script except for one thing: 1 player doesn't do all that for a program weighted down by adminstrative handcuffs. Tulane doesn't want to be BIG TIME in sports, particularly not in football. How do I know that? By every action Tulane has taken since leaving the SEC in the mid 1960's. Actions tell the story and there's been NOTHING done to change the script.

I don't fault Arch one bit for seeking a better program than ours.
