Re: Tulane vrs Tulsa, turn the corner game?

My point was everybody creating all these artificial corners to turn. It’s fake news. There is no corner. Step away from that silliness and the big view is progress (In our case slow I will admit). I think we are incrementally becoming better in every aspect of the team and overall product. Bring it...

Re: 4 point favorite over Army

Seems we all agree if we had completed just 2 or 3 key passes against Navy, we'd be 5-3 now. We also see that our passing game is leaps and bounds better than back then. I guess the first question is will TS Eta cause a problem with rain during the game? Rain usually hampers the passing game more t...

Re: 2 point faves vs ECU

I think we have a decent chance if we the O does three things: - WRs catch any bomb that is dropped in our lap and a defensive player is not within 5 yards of us - DBs catch a pick six that hits us in the hands - TEs make a play on every pass (Temple) and catch balls that hit them in the hands (ever...

Re: TU vs TU opens as a pick ‘em

Is Pratt a winner? 0-3 as a starter. The Houston and UCF games don’t count - overmatched and thrown to the wolves. But SMU was there to snatch a win. Last minute drive with a first down on the SMU 11 w 2 minutes left. Sounds like a win to me. Except when your coaches run it twice up the gut on the f...

Re: We don’t stink

Much more likely after two straight losses than otherwise. UCF has little to no chance at the conference championship. They are going to lose to either Houston or Cincy or both. I watched both of their last two games. In the Tulsa game they were physically manhandled. In the Memphis game they had 8...

No matter what happens the week before, it’s not good for us. And that’s usually right. What are you talking about? This was the best possible outcome...

Re: H-Town Opens as 5 Point Favorite

Let’s start really small.
How about this for a concept.
Every routine pass that Pratt throws that hits the WRs, TEs, and RBs in the hands is caught on Thursday.
If that happens, I’ll take my chances.

Re: H-Town Opens as 5 Point Favorite

If one of our running backs catches a ball right in his face mask on a key 3rd down play v Navy he is still running and we are 3-0. Howard threw it EXACTLY where it needed to be thrown.
