Tulane Goes Jekyll and Hyde Again, Falls Short Against Navy

Today's game was never going to be normal, but the universe somehow found a way to make it even more irregular than anyone could anticipate. Tulane playing an early-season conference game against Navy today was always the plan, but then COVID-19 shook things up and emptied the stands, as well as the press box. The … Continue reading Tulane Goes Jekyll and Hyde Again, Falls Short Against Navy

South Alabama Opens New Stadium, Can’t Close Out Win vs Tulane

Hancock Whitney Stadium is truly a very modern stadium. Tucked to a side of campus that was just waiting for an on-campus stadium to be built, it looks exactly like Ladd-Peebles Stadium would if it had just been built.

Jay Hopson Was An Okay Hire Who Produced Okay Results

Southern Miss Eagles

Jay Hopson may have indeed been the first every white head coach at an HBCU, and he had some good success within the conference.

TV Streaming Options for Group of Five Fans

Well, that's annoying. I was always under the impression that the entire purpose of switching from traditional cable providers to streaming services - cutting the cord, as they say - was done as an intended tradeoff. I pay less money to the person who provides my television channels, and in return, they give me fewer … Continue reading TV Streaming Options for Group of Five Fans

We’re Coming Back, But We’re Not Forgetting Anything

Forgotten5 is going to be entering into its fifth year of operation in a month, and as always, things will be different. It will be different in a few specific ways, but those are far less important right now, other than one in particular. At the end of May, we committed that we would refrain … Continue reading We’re Coming Back, But We’re Not Forgetting Anything
