Tulane, coming off a big win promises to stay the course vs FIU

leave it to Guerry Smith to blurt out a stat (first road favorite of double digits in 14 years) and not follow it up with the facts of that statement

does anyone know off hand WHOM we were favored against in 2003 and did we cover or even win? ULaLa? SMU? Army (who actually beat us?)

He said it on the wave report....maybe editing issue with the paper again? Or, he just does this on purpose to get your goat. Sorry, I can't share the premium information with you. JK, he said it was Army.

We were coming of the Hawaii Bowl win. Army has given us trouble almost every year we've played them. In '97 or '98 I remember struggling at Army.

FIU isn't going to "army" us. Not because we're so incredibly good, but because Willie Fritz is our coach now. Even if FIU made some big plays and hung around, Fritz will adjust and outcoach them. That (in-game adjusting) wasn't happening in 2003. Or 2004,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15.

Take FIU and the points.

TU - 18 ::::: FIU - 17

If we only score 18 on FIU something is seriously wrong. Their defense is not good.

Yup, and we covered (50-33). That was the game right after we won against Miss. St.... And right before we got destroyed by Texas.

No kidding. The only defense to hold us lower than that is Oklahoma. FIU ain't Oklahoma.

It could be that IM meant to type a different number than the one in front of our score.

He does say to take FIU and the points so he thinks we'll win by less than 14.

28-17 would account for that.

Could be. IMO, anything below 35 will be disappointing against this opponent.

Yes, that score would work also. I look for a win here, but it will be a sloppy, UGLY WIN (and 'on the road').

I just do not think that Tulane will be a the top of their game for this one. Trailing 17-12, Hilliard or Badie score with a minute and something left in the game to pull it out. Two-point attempt is missed. Defense has to win it at the end. Nickerson picks one off to seal the deal. WHEW!!!

You mean right before Mewelde had the most amazing run ever against Texas.

while that is true, I think heavy downpours will result in us keeping it on the ground more and there could be lightning delays.

We play most of our games in the near tropics. It comes with the territory.

Rain would favor us significantly. Our running game should dominate them and the only way they stay relatively close is if they are able to burn us with deep passes, which rain would minimize.

There is always a 50% chance of rain there. Either it will or it won't.

FIU's emphasis on the pass compared to our recent opponents might help them but it will also simplify things for Ade.

And I can't imagine FIU's O line will be as big or as physical as Tulsa.
