Keith Williams

Our former WR coach hired to the same position for the Saints...I believe he overlapped with Sumrall under CJ, to further our ties to the Saints.

Re: Daniels at it again

The TBD is does SJU make an immediate uTurn with this coaching tactic? No question of Pitino’s resume. Just this tactic at this time. Fritz is very much on point. Are you aware of his ever calling out an underperforming player publicly? He did call himself out (whether deserved or not) regularly. T...

Re: Daniels at it again

TBD if Pitino calling specific players out publicly works. Fritz would disagree. After losses especially the painful/controversial ones like Navy twice or goal-line SMU, he always said he and his staff had to coach better. Fritz would save any unvarnished player evaluations for the staff room and l...

We don't have to practice as much because our team's average height/weight is closer to the average height/weight of the teams in the CWS last year.

Yes, we can get someone to give 5 million for basketball NIL money and win tomorrow but if it was that easy we'd already have the 5 million in the bank.

Not only did Fritzes fill the cupboard, They elevated quality of those extra 25 players to benefit of all. I welcome correction but ...

Re: MBB 78 Memphis 90

If we're up at the end of a close game we have a shot (we are *usually* a good FT shooting team). It's when we're down two or more scores with under about 2.5 to 3 minutes that we always lose. I first noticed it at ECU two years ago, a game we had no excuse losing (IIRC it was the debut of the Mard...

Tulane usually needs big edge there to win to offset the lack of rebounds Tulane is now really flirting with having to play-in o...

So? It’s too granular for you. However it shows in depth how to fix the problem like Fritz did whereas Johnson, et al simply threw their hands up in the air.
