RB Anderson bright spot for Tulane
Andre Anderson had three touchdowns in Tulane's scrimmage Wednesday. That's three times as many as last year when the Green Wave junior was Matt Forté's backup.
"You've got to have a knack for finding the end zone," Anderson said. "It's something you've got to feel, and you've got to want to get in there and somehow just find a way. It felt pretty good today."

The experienced wide reciever group of the Green Wave is happy to follow the lead of Brian King
Brian King isn't a flashy wide receiver who is going to do back flips after he scores a touchdown. He's not the type to run his mouth on the field or play with a me-first attitude that has been popularized by some wideouts on the professional level.

Tulane Tulane seeks better QB play in 2008
Tulane finished just 4-8 last season even though Matt Forte rushed for more than 2,000 yards. This season, the Green Wave will have to try and improve that record without Forte, who is now a Chicago Bear. Junior Andre Anderson steps in at running back, and second-year coach Bob Toledo's halfback-friendly offense will guarantee that he gets plenty of chances to prove himself.

Tulane lining up to prove a point

Tulane Volleyball feels it has something to prove
Last season, Tulane volleyball coach Liz Kritza thought her team was good enough to make it into the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history. The Green Wave had a 28-6 record, including a 14-2 mark in Conference USA, and picked up a top-50 RPI win by defeating LSU on the eve of the NCAA selection, which insiders told Kritza all but secured a berth.
Wave welcomes reprieve from heat
After decrying his team's conditioning last season as the worst he'd ever seen in his 40-plus years of coaching, Tulane Coach Bob Toledo might have been expected to be wanting a typical early-August practice -- temperatures in the mid-90s and humidity-laden conditions -- for the Green Wave's first day of preseason drills just to test out if things have improved.
