If gray is out at any point, we need to claim we got covid. Lol
Yikes. No TJ and especially Reggie is devastating.

Rashee Rice had a very good game - seven catches for a 139 yards and a touchdown.

Definitely under rated. He also didn't run backwards on his punt return.

I’d still like to have a true slot guy. And RB is a real question.

Do we not have a play action pass in the playbook?

It was ugly at times but in the end it's a W...and Paul Layne's attendance streak is still alive!

Nice to have former H.S. QBs on the roster as they can do a lot of things for your team. Those guys are typically the among the best athletes, if not the best on their H.S. team. That rick play was a great call as opponents may not be aware he was a lefty QB...but our future opponents know that now! Page is an experienced guy who has been a solid contributor his entire career

5-0. Maybe the football gods are punishing us with this sloppy game for hoping for too much. Every team in the nation wants our record.

With a last-second win over Memphis and with Cincinnati next on our schedule, it was definitely a trap game. We didn't disappoint.

Injuries may be the curse of this season, much like last season.

RR is going to be missed...that is abundantly clear.

Still haven’t figured out that if we have Rice and (the fastest guy on the team) Gray why we aren’t throwing the ball vertically.

Sad to see that Tulane didn't have a QB consistent enough to win by passing yet we never played the run. And we contiuned the decades old tradition of letting a team with 3rd or 4th and 35+ yards convert. This was a sloppy game but much of it was to the coaching and inablity to adjust to the other teams weakness. I'll take the win but hope we improve going forwarded.
