Every bowl season turns out bad for the conference.as a group we have never been able to even put together a winning record. This isn't the year to complain loudly with everything going on, but bowl season is often the best opportunity to showcase how good the AAC is. Getting boatraced by CUSA and MWC teams is a bad look. Nobody will care if teams are missing players and coaches, all they see is the game play and the score. Makes it that much easier for p5 pundits and fans to dismiss us. In future seasons I would really like to see the conference put forth a better effort in these games.

That said, if Cinci beats UGA much of the bad from these early games will be forgotten

Thank you. If other teams put up the litany of explanations why we were mashed potatoes yesterday we jump all over them. No one comes to a war firing all guns.

If yesterday-----a team from the tropics playing in the cold, at altitude, with only allowed to be in the city for less than 24 hours before COVID, with their 3 best defensive players out, several important offensive weapons out, a freshman QB, a brand new OC, a brand new DC who wasn't even yet serving as DC (so had an interim), most important part of the OL gets injured at key moment----if that happened to ANY other team, we would be telling that fanbase they should have fully expected to lose, and only were mad at losing because they were too close/biased to have noticed. There is plenty of delusion on this board, and a lot of it might be giving Fritz too many excuses in general. But the delusion on this board is NOT people making "excuses" for yesterday. Yesterday makes sense in any reasonable, objective sense.

I do agree with all of this, but for clarity sake, I will add that the AAC was 4-3 last year

UCF was down 14-0 within 5 minutes of game time and I gather it didn't get any better for them.

Fair, and in terms of debating this week, I'll gladly leave it at that as well. But I think it's also fair to say that while, at first hand, our differences may appear philosophical, I think it might also simply tie into expectations of yesterday. I fully anticipated (and even predicted) the result. Most on here still had it in their heads we would win.

90% of the times people have tried to make excuses for Fritz in the last couple of years, I've sounded just like you, so we aren't, big picture, as far off as my comments in this thread might make me sound.

This asserts that we are part of the culture. We aren't. We are fans, and at our best, we stay objective. Far too much emotion on this board in both directions, but that's a personal choice, but emotion tied to the idea that any of us are "part" of this is delusion.

And, yes, part (not all) of the reasons that I saw this coming, were because of the culture not only of Tulane football but also Tulane football under Fritz.

On third down or a big play? Absolutely not. But no I don’t think it’s OK to stand up randomly throughout the entire game in front of other people. And I make no apologies for this. I also don’t feel the need to pay a fortune to get an “authentic” jersey in every color to wear to every game (matching the ones the team will wear, of course!) so I can pretend I’m on the team. In both cases, I realize the world doesn’t revolve around just me

Your (Prof) reasoning is the most reasonable of the thread. Anyone that sees otherwise doesn’t want to see the reality of the situation and is stuck in the loser mentality that has haunted us for years.

Good catch on that. I was so used to really bad bowl seasons like the 2-5 effort the year before, I forgot the conference was actually fine last year.

Memphis carried the water yesterday, beating FAU 25-10.

Houston couldn’t do anything offensively. So it is possible to stop some of these offenses we see every year.

Tulsa loses to Mississippi St in yet another conference loss. Pretty bad for the P6 narrative we like to tell since Miss. St. Was 3-7 on the year. The second place team in the AAC should be able to handle a bottom feeder SEC squad. Again the conference really needs to find a way to show better in the postseason. Definitely need a Cinci win now

If you watched, it was more like a brawl happened and a game was in between. Guys on the ground getting stomped, helmets swinging, non-players throwing punches, police and coaches helpless.

I didn’t see it. News reports said a brawl but the clip they showed was not a brawl, and since the news media has proven themselves so trustworthy I was reluctant to take their word for it.

In the conference’s defense, they shouldn’t have been 2nd place. The essentially lost to ECU and got lucky vs us.

While true, it isn't exactly like Houston or Tulane did anything in the postseason either. I guess Memphis would've maybe been a better matchup, but then Tulsa missing their all world 1st round LB probably didn't help. Regardless the narrative is being written yet again
