I think the King redshirting angle is a cover story to save face for Holgorsen and Fertitta in the short term. Maybe King will come back. It’s very possible he does not. Then the crap hits the fan.


The season was far from over. Though they had 3 losses only the one to us was in conference. Considering it was us(@ a decent team) they were still perfectly capable of winning the west going 7-1 or 6-2. They then win the CCG game and their bowl they finish 11-3 or 10-4. That was still in play. Any pretensions that it wasn't is a statement about were they are as a program(not good).

Well Pete did call it by predicting the reaction of the graduating seniors.

Yes, Fritz does lead by example. He emphasizes character is what he looks at first in evaluating a recruit. I bet Mom, Dad and player can safely apply that same first test to Fritz.

Finally it's awesome to be a Wave fan where Tulane does have a team willing to run through walls for its coaches.

I met some young men at the Auburn game who played for Coach Fritz at GSU. They work in Atlanta now, and came to support the Wave. They had all bought TU gear and were happy to come cheer on a team coached by a guy who last coached them five years ago.

That speaks volumes to me.

Since the whole "4 games before redshirting" thing has gone off the sensible tracks into la-la land, here's a question: why couldn't Tune play 4 games and then also redshirt (since they've already thrown away the season), let their 3rd string guy play the rest, and then Tune saves another year as well? In other words, if you're gonna throw away a season, why not go all-in on it?

(disclaimer: I have not looked to see if Tune already redshirted and whether that's possible, so if he did, just consider this a hypothetical)


this was brought up on the Houston forum too....

I imagine it would cause a re-thinking of that rule change.

Say what??

The transfer rule is a great rule. The 4 game redshirt rule is (at least) a very good rule. Put in tandem, they make for some very bad results that should, in fact, be addressed. I don't know how to fix it, but I'm not mad (yet) that they are looking at it. The devil will be in the details.

I don't mind it. I think it balances out things for those like it McClesky and Kelly Bryant to provide a recourse to those who are told lies by their coaches that they will get PT only to have the season come and they are on the sideline. More specifically the "we are having a competition at that position" crap they are told just to string them out to the start of season so they can't evaluate their options and transfer if needs be before then. What needs to be changed is the transfer waver thing for non graduates. It is completely out of control and illogical.
