Celestine ran really, really well... he's going to be good
Ibieta looked solid... he had a couple of bad throws, but overall was good
Jesus Machado looked really good as well
Cooper got a lot of playing time.. his normal rotation and then a few more series with the second unit.. he made some plays and a couple of mistakes
Was it Cooper that tipped the ball to Watts for the TD?

No it was Keitha Jones, Jr. He had 2 catches for 17 yards, I believe all on that one drive.

Sure enough it was, and sure enough after the commercial the announcers started talking about the infamous Leon Lett play from Thanksgiving 1993 (which I coincidentally watched at Slidellwave's apartment) and how none of the players in today's game were even born then... :lol:

Perhaps we'll have a lucky cloud following us this season, much like the one Tulsa had last year.

One of the most impressive things about Henry's pick six was watching Jeffrey Johnson chug down the field with him trying to get a block. Dude looks good minus those extra 50 pounds.

Had the same notion. He's slimmer and quicker but still has that big nose guard behind. :lol:

Johnny, thanks for the update. Appreciate it.

How did the 2nd unit OL look? Any freshman in that rotation?

Second unit Oline looked OK except for Caleb Thomas's snaps. They were awful. Almost every play got off rhythm because he was throwing these soft pop ups back to our QB. I was actually surprised they left him in that long doing that. It was terrible. The third string center went in during the middle of a series and immediately the snaps got better. I have to think if something happens to Haynesworth that Dublin would move over to center.

If I remember the second unit Oline was Shafter at LT and Jackel at RT. Fort at RG. Thomas and Center. I think Lombardi was at LG but I can not remember for sure.

ESPN has some strange stats for the game. Shows 1 attempt by Ibieta, 0 completions, 0 yards.
All passing yardage credited to Pratt.
Only one interception (Henry).

https://www.espn.com/college-football/t ... /_/id/2655

Haven't gone through entire stat sheet, but these are glaringly wrong.

Don’t forget the slow roller to the QB.
I think you are correct in that another OL would slide over and take the Center duties.

I don't really know where else to put this, but thought it notable that the Morgan St. win makes Coach Fritz the 6th Tulane coach to reach 30 victories. If we go 7-5 this year he'll be tied with Scelfo for second in all time wins through far fewer games. 8 wins puts him in second place alone, with plenty of ground to make up on Shaughnessy for the all time wins leader. He'd need to reach 60 victories to be first all-time.

He's already halfway to Shaughnessy.

The team energy was high from the first snap. Excellent.
Our OC rode the QBs all game. IMO the interceptions are on him. No reason to be throwing in those situations.
I liked both Brumfield and Celestine.
We have at least 25 very good looking defensive players that are nearly interchangeable.
I’m still not convinced about our WRs. Not sure Deuce Watts was targeted.

Some a$$whole wore an lsu cap to the game. He sat behind a few former TU players who was giving him an earful (nicely but clearly).
He left before halftime with a chorus of “lsu suks” and “Roll tide” raining down on his sorry arse.
Hey that was me! I was sitting with Dwight Jones (who was really getting on him) and Shane Marshall.

I had a field pass for the game and we played so many guys I thought about sneaking in the game. Literally everyone with shoulder pads played, set a school record for players playing in a game. The stats are a bit messed up this week, there were problems with numbers matching the roster, good problems to have when you are playing 3rd and 4th team players. That last TD, the Morgan WR literally threw our DB out of the way and caught the ball...the refs swallowed their whistles.

Back to the game, we dominated up front as we should have, starting defense only gave up that short field TD...and even that was on a 2nd string CB who is known to be suspect in coverage. Ibeita and everyone else got some good experience which was great to see, the starters did not play past midway into the 2nd qtr. I almost lost it when Chip Long called Ibeita a dumarse after he threw that 50/50 ball that was picked in the endzone. From what I heard the wr ran the wrong route. The snaps were bad from the 2nd team center, slow and wobbly....really threw off the timing of plays. Otherwise the 2nd team o-line blocked very well, and started opening up some gaping holes in the 3rd and 4th qtrs when our depth really began to tell. We have so much more depth than 3 years ago, when someone like Celestine is 4th string, that says something. We only had 1 dropped pass, Phat Watts, who then made up for it catching that tipped ball. Man that was a fun day...now the real season begins.

On the latest "The Current", Fritz says well over 100 guys played.

If you haven't listened to his comments (second half of the episode), it's worth it... Just his comments about how he told all the guys, even those who know they may never see the field again, they can take this day for the rest of their lives and be able to say "I played D1 football".

Hey that was me! I was sitting with Dwight Jones (who was really getting on him) and Shane Marshall.
I love you guys! Y'all jumped on that hat within one second of that guy sitting there and didn’t relent. My wife and I were loving it from a few rows above you.
When he tried to turn his ugly arse purple hat around y’all said: Don’t do that! Now everybody in the stands has to see that ugly lsu stuff. Ha ha ha.
And in typical chicken $heit fashion he cut and ran when the going got tough. Was nowhere to be found by halftime.
