I thought the same thing

This is subject stuff, but Pratt looks like he is out there trying witih courage and talent to make the play he is told to make. Horton looks like he commanding the offense each play. It may sound abstract, but it's the difference between players like Losman and Griffin. Those two are the best Tulane comparable in style to Horton and Pratt. While they different levels of success at Tulane and were drafted at different levels. Griffin has been the NFL much longer and may be the better QB overall.
This is a great point, and you may be right.

Saw Talianich’s, Monroe’s and many others. Always fun to share with Mom and Dad.

Finally although relatively small, band is very good and very spirited. We just have to get Tulane students to stay whole game like Houston’s does.
I was impressed we had the band, cheer, and dance all there. There were multiple times we scored right in front of the Tulane section and it was cool to see the players get high fives from them.
As many of you know, early-mid 1960s at Tulane: no band......

I think it was their AD....he also said they had mortgaged their future by not redshirting enough as justification for all the teams best players quitting after we beat them in 2019.

After we beat them and King and others quit, I remember someone here saying Holgerson historically liked playing 22-and 23-year olds, and redshirting like crazy to have an experienced, mature team. Perhaps that doesn't work in the portal era, or perhaps he just isn't a good coach, but he's certainly had time to try it and they're still a mess.

My favorite part was King leaving to go to Miami

On a side note, what kind of dingbat takes the ball first in OT?
Told my wife that they just gave us the game.

I understand why. They figured a TD would win it because our 3rd string QB wouldn’t score.

Before OT they showed Anderson and Spears praying together and I told my wife “see that. Those two are going to win this thing”.

I’m just glad my belief in Hampton (and the Canady/Clark combo) hasn’t let me down
Holgo elected to get the ball 1st in OT in at least 1 of their previous 2 OT games this season.
He said that the analytics show that the team to get the ball 1st in OT wins 56% of the time. Personally, I don’t agree with the decision.
54% now.
And I, too, didn't agree with his decision (from a uh viewpoint). I was shocked when they elected to go first.
I’d play defense first too but in golf you work to get and keep the honors which has you teeing off first to put pressure on opponent to match. So there is a lot of precedent for it in another sport
But you don't play the entire hole first, letting your opponent (match play I guess) know what score he needs to win.

Good points. Just trying to understand Dana’s logic through analogy.

Interestingly old baseball extra inning rule has given home teams a big edge historically in success because you always have last at bat. Glad Dana’s not a baseball fan

I mentioned what I thought his logic was either in this thread or the scoreboard. He assumed they would get a TD and put pressure on our 3rd string QB.

And if you DID play the entire hole first, golfers would want to tee off last.

Yeah, there's an Athletic article about it which kinda goes into it but doesn't really give that much clarity.

(an exception was the OT throw that got the fortunate PI call). On the winner, he pulled back from his first choice, seeing that the CB was jumping the route (likely pick 6 had he thrown to the first option); the safety made a good recovery on Spears, but Horton put the ball right where it had to be. Thank goodness for QB depth.
I think that was an intentional pump fake to draw the CB up, not a pull back.

Do yourself a favor and rewatch that play in superslomo or pause as the play progresses.
You will see the light go off in Horton’s head.
But then he delivered on time and where only we could catch it….all within milliseconds.
He ain’t Drew Brees, but damn it’s as impressive a winning TD TU throw that I can remember.

Does anybody have any reliable info on the nature and extent of Pratt's injury?

We won in more than one way. According to this site, our game was the second rated cable show Friday night (after the Washington/UCLA game that followed).
