a tidbit from CFN regarding Army

Army should keep the fun going after a few amazing seasons under Jeff Monken, and it’ll find its way into some post-season game. Can the Knights possibly run all over Michigan on the road and run the table from there? The second-toughest game on the slate? Either Tulane, or at Hawaii.

Final Play on the local Fox affiliate had a nice 5 minute piece with WF. He talked about the experience we have coming back. Talked about strength's being the D-line , where he believes P. Johnson and Sample will play on Sunday's, and running back. Concerned about losses in the defensive backfield. One stated goal is winning back to back Bowl games for the first time. It was well done.

Ed Daniels did another Tulane feature last Wednesday. He had two of our better players in studio on for about 10 minutes.

Thanks!
WF is really the perfect coach for our program. He’s not afraid to make needed adjustments. He’s shown improvement each year he’s been here. This season is going to really be exciting. Can’t wait for opening kickoff. Possibly 7 to 8 wins if we stay healthy.

We're catching them at a good spot in their season. After a season opening big intersectional P5 game vs Oregon, and two weeks before their first conference game vs Texas A&M.

I think the FIU game will be the litmus test for the season. If we come out and take care of business, this Tulane team will be in their way. If we come out and drop a load against FIU, look out, things could get very tough.

It wouldn't be a Tulanish year if we didn't soil the bed clothes once or twice. I'll be happy with another bowl season, even if that means playing ULL again. As Tiger Woods so often said during his lost years, "It's a process.".

In 2017 FIU beat us 23 to 10 @ Miami. Jonathan Banks was 5 of 13 for 36 yards; from his track record to date I feel confident Justin McMillan will not “stink up the place” against the Panthers @ Yulman on Thursday night, August 29th.

I believe we will win!!!

I think we'll win eight regular season games and I'm not counting on FIU to be one of them. I'm not saying we will lose it; only that if we did we could still have a strong season. I like us this year.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.

I think the heat and humidity will affect FIU... on second thought maybe not

At the end of last season Sagarin had the Wave ranked 86, FIU 99, even though the Panthers were 9-4 for 2018. By Sagarin's ratings system at Yulman for last year's teams we would have been just over a 5 point favorite.

In 2017 against FIU @ Miami we beat ourselves, I don't think we will beat ourselves for this year's home opener.

I told y’all this when he was hired. Fritz is the perfect guy for the job here at Tulane. We will always find a bowl game under his direction. Fritz wants to be a G5 powerhouse, but he believes that there is no excuse for a our program not to win at least 6 games even on a down year.

To build a fan base we need to do something Tulane Football has NEVER done: Win 8 games or more three plus years in a row. I think Fritz can accomplish this, assuming he stays long enough to do so. Let's hope 2019 is the first of a string of 8+ win seasons.

Other than teams that just dominate a weak conference, that's probably a pretty tough task for any team that's not a Top 10 program. Do you have any idea how many schools have done this for the past 3 years?

Recently USF, Memphis, UCF, Houston and even Tulsa, Ecu have all accomplished this.

I don't have the time to go through and figure out for all 10 FBS conferences. In our own conference, only Memphis has done this the past three years, but four or five teams have won 24+ games over the past three seasons.

Not if you schedule accordingly and bring in a solid staff who understands where they are/what they have to work with.


Right now, the future looks bright for us. Our upcoming non-conference schedules can easily work in our favor. For the next few years, our non conference games feature 1-2 games vs P5 programs while the rest are against FCS programs and G5s. Many of those schedules scream 2-2 outside of conference play at worst. This is what is needed. Fritz has what it takes to put together 8+ win teams on a regular basis. After last season's bowl win over Cajun College, we really need to take advantage of our schedule this year. It's time to let fans know that we are serious about winning. The 2014 season really dropped a log on the hype that was building after a winning season and the opening of Yulman. The atmosphere for home opener was great, but to watch how the hype went down once we turned right back into the same ole Green Wave was terrible. Now, we have a legitimate chance to have a second consecutive winning season. Come on Fritz! Don't let us down.

Just win. 8 isnt some magic number. Win 7-9 games a few years in a row and good things will happen. Plenty of teams have done this in our conference and so can we.
