Good Timeout by Bob, at least he wasn't content to let them run out the clock to just a 14 point margin.

Now, we see some dumb play calling by Nutt. He netted 15 yards because he didn't think his team could pick up a 4th and 5.

If you want to talk coaches, they should bone up and go get Gruden. I know they would have to pay big time, but a hire like that would be BIG time and perk up some serious ears. Talk about instant nationally recognition! This administration would never think to do something like that though. Wishful dreaming.

Take yourself back to mid-August...

Let's say somebody just offered you that Tulane would go into game 3 with a 1-1 record, having played within 2 TDs of Ole Miss. Would you have considered it a good deal?

TV says "Tulane made it a game"

At least they didn't punt on the fourth down play...

It's becoming glaringly obvious that Darkwa isn't ready to play in passing downs unless it's a screen. He can't identify who he is supposed to block for anything.

Pitiful play, Griffin looks like a HQ QB out there, offensive line does not exist.

Does anything ever change?............

Well, it wasn't a blow out.

While the calls weren't all vanilla, he tried the reverse once too many times...

highest number???? Not possible -- you must mean percentage ratio to acceptances.

If you hadn't watched the games, you might say yeah that sounds pretty good. But having watched them both, this team is poorly coached, doesn't have much athleticism, and most of all none of the competitive spirit needed to win consistently. We will be embarrassed, probably on several occasions, by CUSA teams.

Completely accurate. There is, as has been the case for years now, no fire in the belly. And Toledo ultimately is responsible for playcalling, defense, and morale. Time again for a change.

There - I've said it and I am not going to take it back.

So we continue to be satisfied with cliches. That is unfortunately the way many of the powers to be think; thus we will continue have to live through everlasting futility. It's a shame players that come to Tulane, have to play under losing coaches, over and over. When will it end?

How do your convince kids to come play at TULANE?

COACH -
"Kid, come to Tulane and you have a chance to play right away. You can make a difference".

RECRUIT -
"But coach, I don't want to come to Tulane and play right away and have to lose for all 4 years, getting my brains beat in every freaking game because the coaching sucks!"

That is certainly the cite that the Tulane Model would revert to after a game like this. Even if it's true, so what. It doesn't make us a better football team, and in fact, it isn't making us a better academic university either. A meaningless statistical cite in the world of free internet applications.

While we didn't have as much athleticism as needed, we do have some really good young athletes (Darkwa, Banks, Griffin), and with the proper system (true spread or the pistol) we could really do some damage. In the end, this was a winnable game, and had we been better coached (kicking a fg on 4th and goal from the 1) we could have won. Ole Miss was nothing special. Houston would have hung 50 on them without breaking a sweat.

Um.... so what can we expect from the Cougar Juggernaut in 2 weeks? After seeing our pass defense, I shudder with speculation about the final score.

I think I mean highest number this year in a hard to defend attempt to get some ink for the school. It's clear that none of the WB's will be heading there.

You're right, Ole Miss isn't anything special, in fact, I bet they end up last in the SEC West. As far as UH, it could get real ugly. UH has a history of reaching for 100 points, and they just might put a C Note on us.

44,000 applications and we can't field competitive major sports. Our DBs looked very slow, the coaching was centered on not getting blown out, and and our offense is beyond mediocre. Ole Miss is in for a long season, but we were never really near winning this game.

How about something more realistic, like 69-3?

You're right. While the sportscasters tried to keep the audience on-board once we got within 14 points of Ole Miss, those of us who know Tulane knew we really never were that close to actually winning it. We all knew that they joy of beating the point spread was more than enough for Toledo and Gibson Hall.

If the game is played in a monsoon, we might stay that close.
