Why would a Tulane victory over a top 5 ranked team be discussed at a national level when LSUcks faced so much hardship this week
30 for 30 on LSU missing 3 practices is already in production.

From the OU perspective...

Some pretty level-headed thoughts about what a bummer this is.
Also an interesting thought that I'm sure many OU fans are thinking of: Alabama last played at Tulane in 1992 then won a NC. LSU last played at Tulane in 2007 then won a NC.

They got this opening quote right:
There is bad luck, there is rotten luck and there is Tulane luck.

Man, wouldn't that be something? We wouldn't just be the top story on every sports outlet, considering this past weekend we'd probably get a mention on just "regular news".

A very Tulanian quote.

As someone who lost a large portion of my home, I could have used the distraction of this game Saturday.

Did I see Mel Hair Gel on ESPN picking Sooners to win the National Championship? If so that’s better than Jiu-Jiu, Good Vibrations, and 31 points. Again if true, take the Wave and the points early and often while the OU folks hang out with hardest working hairstyle in sportsdom.

On College Gameday Saturday 3 or 4 people picked OU to win the NC.

I saw Oklahoma is painting the angry wave on the field for the game. With moving the game, giving us the gate still, and the little gestures like this, Oklahoma is winning me over as a fan this season (after Saturday of course).

Would like to see them be extra hospitable and roll over. :-)

NOT much is free hand anymore. Stencils highly involved.

I was actually surprised (in the Twitter video I linked) how much of the "filling in between the lines" was actually freehand. They outlined the angry wave in black but colored it in freehand without any masking. Like the old game Operation, "it takes a very steady hand..."

I know moral victories don’t count but I say Tulane covers the 31.5 point spread!

Cautiously optimistic…. As others mentioned, big change for the Wave. Everything is thrown off kilter but OU seems to have been very accommodating. I wish we had a cream puff game before this to get a quick tune up in.

41-10

When this game was going to be at Yulman I thought somewhere around 42/49-21 OU. Now with it being a home game for OU following the disruptions we have faced I have no idea. Just get through the game healthy and hope OU is overlooking us some.

I think they will call off the dogs once they cover the spread as to try not to embarrass us.

We looked so good outside of a few things we can easily clean up. Gutsy performance. Excited for the rest of the year.

For those of you with a sporting bent and had an O/U of 69, I’m sure there were fourth q heart attacks when fritz went for 2 with the score 40-28 instead of kicking the EP and Pratt tripped over his lineman. Next series the OU kicker missed his FG.


Last Tulane TD made the over but it was still fun while it lasted
