Three Point Play

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Feb 18th, 2005 | Category: Sports

Props to the Patriots, again. If they aren’t officially a dynasty, there must be something in the water that’s making these journalists delusional. The Patriots won a Super Bowl with the most difficult schedule in NFL history and now have proven to the entire football world that they can win no matter the situation. I […]

Tom Brady holds Super Bowl records in passing first downs (19) and completions (32). He has led two final drives in two separate Super Bowls that have ended in game-winning field goals.

I. Tulane athletics seems to have it out for UAB. After delivering a heart-stopping win in football this past October, the basketball team took its turn beating UAB 73-70 in overtime winning on a buzzer beating three-pointer. This time it was freshman Taylor Rochestie putting the nail in the coffin. Rochestie’s three-pointer sent Fogelman Arena […]

The basement: Next year, Saints fans

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Jan 14th, 2005 | Category: Sports

There’s always next year.
It seems like I tell myself those same words after every Saints season. But this season was different. For the first time, I can’t wait till next season.
For once, Jim Haslett’s Saints did not fold in December. For once, the Saints played solidly in all three phases of the game. For once, they gave […]

I.  After years of suffering, I can be grateful for one thing from 2004: the San Diego Chargers. As lifelong a San Diegan and Chargers fan, the last 10 years have been devastating. However, in one season, everything changed. The team went from being torn up by Eli Manning and existing as the laughing stock […]

A New Desire

With professional athletes, the phrase “reinvesting in the community” comes up fairly often. It refers to the way players donate parts of their salary to certain charity organizations or community groups.
For Danny Wuerffel, however, the cost of contribution means more than just a simple financial donation. Wuerffel, who played seven seasons in the NFL after winning […]

About a month ago, the Green Wave was sitting at the bottom of the Conference USA standings as many began viewing this season as a rebuilding year.

the basement: Missin’ hockey

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Dec 3rd, 2004 | Category: Sports

Something is missing on the sports landscape.
Sure, the NFL is in full swing, basketball season is getting underway and Green Wave football is actually putting together an impressive run.
The Boston Red Sox even won the World Series in thrilling fashion, which was perhaps the greatest thing to happen to me to at this point in my life. […]

Three point play

By Tulane Hullabaloo | Dec 3rd, 2004 | Category: Sports

I. What were they thinking? That’s the name of an old bloopers show. It only seems to be fitting to ask the Pacers and Pistons the same question following the explosive ending to their Nov. 19 game in Detroit. It was perhaps the scariest clip I have ever seen. I hope that the mutual respect […]

To the students, faculty, and readers of the “Hullabaloo,”
I don’t know if any students have been paying attention, but an amazing thing is happening with our football team. Despite the negativity of the students, despite a 1-4 start, despite being a very young team that lost two players to the NFL, our Green Wave has pulled […]
