Hey guys, needed some help and wanted to turn here first.

Got an idea in my head that I'm been fired up about to do an in depth project on the 1998 undefeated team. I'd like to figure out if it's a good idea first with some research -- was anyone on the board a member of the team and/or involved in any way (I'm talking equipment staff or anything else)?

Would really like to shoot you an email or give you a call if so with some questions. Shoot me a DM here, email me (jp @ fearthewave.com) or tweet at us if you're on Twitter.

You need to talk with Alden Hagadorn and also with Jimmy Ordinaux.

Just out of curiosity, is this something for your blog or something else (like a book or video project)? Just curious; I'll be interested to read or view it either way.

I'll tip my hand here a little bit. It's going to be an audio podcast (right now, looking like 5 episodes), and I want to chronicle the 1998 season from the beginning (which I am starting at the end of the Buddy era) all the way up to the BYU game and the aftermath.

I've done about 4 hours of interviews so far, and I think this is going to come together (after a lot of work). It's a summer project. Getting a lot of help from former players who have helped connect me. Still tracking some folks down as the big story points emerge.

If anyone else sees this and wants to talk or thinks they can help me, I'm all ears! DM me here or on Twitter, and we can discuss.

I LOVED the first episode and am looking forward to more. I'll bet you can do more than 5 podcasts out of the material you have. I have a copy of the videotape Tulane made of the highlights of the season if you don't have it.

I'm stuck and wanted to see if anyone had any ideas: does anyone remember any of the media in town (print or TV) who would have covered the team in 1998? I'd like to get 1-2 for the project to talk about the season.

My initial leads came up cold though. Ideas?

Also, @Cheerleader, thank you, just shot you a PM.

Sadly, I remember much better coverage from USAToday, including the entire front page of its sports section when it looked like we’d run the table. I’d contact them too, providing they are still in business.

Ed Daniels was certainly around in 1998.

Check with the Crescent City Sports guys. Ken Trahan would know for sure.

First episode is back from the audio producer, and I am very stoked about this series.

Should be released Monday on all podcast apps. More to come. Thanks to everyone who helped me get started. Hope you dig it.

For anyone interested, the first episode, "From Buddy to Bowden" is now out on Soundcloud and wherever you listen to podcasts:

https://soundcloud.com/user-774038550/t ... -to-bowden

This episode will detail the 1997 as the staff tries to set a new standard for Green Wave Football. Hope you enjoy.
