Who can think of Montego Bay without thinking of Bobby Bloom?   Smiley (It is credited as the first reggae/steel drum single to chart in the US).



Bloom died just a few years later, and this turned out to he his only hit recording.  But he is better remembered as a songwriter and producer.  He was a co-writer of "Mony, Mony," among others.

Good one. Desmond Dekker's Israelites was #9 in '69 the year before.  No steel drum but generally considered the first reggae hit.

The boogie down Bronx gonna roll Tulane.

Sagarin has the Rams as 2 point dogs to Tulane, no home court advantage.

Should have been clearer that steel drum is generally considered a form of reggae.  People use the term "reggae/steel drum" to distinguish it from African steel drum music.

Tulane pounded the Rams of Colorado St. last night, 80-53. Let's hope we can represent the species a little better tomorrow night...

Wish I was in Vegas (or has that Borgata book opened in Jersey yet?). Pretty easy call here- Tulane -2 all day!

1 for 22 from 3. Unreal.  I was in and out watching the game and I saw Tavares hit his 3 and thought "OK, get some more of that going."  Didn't realize then that was the zenith of the long range shooting for the evening.

Forget FSU, you shoot 1 for 22 when your offense is predicated on the 3 and you will beat nobody.

Problem is we have played 3 games and in 2 of them shot 3-24 and 1-22. That is almost impossible to do. Are we inconsistent or are we consistently bad? Time will tell but there could be some ugly games to come.

   Another game in which we will be overmatched physically.  Let's try to keep it under 20.

   We'll see the return of Tony Chiles on Tulane's bench - guy's got nine lives.

I'm down on Chartouny because he doesn't appear to have his heart in it. Who knows, I could be dead wrong because never has played with a lot of emotion.  But its hard to ignore the whole draft thing. Havsa's line was atrocious. 20 minutes 0-3 shooting, 3 personal fouls,  0 rebounds, 4 turnovers.  Wow. That is as bad as it gets.  How long to we wait for him to come un-funked before he goes permanently to the bench?

Tulane seems to run and gun.....should be interesting....if Zarko is not going to play this year, and if Ohams is hurt, we have just 9 guys.  Get some rest tonight..

Joe didn't have his heart in it in the final half of last season as well. Something happened

Get out of here with this garbage.  His game log shows this is crap.  He played his best basketball in conference play except the 4 games where he had his family issues.  You are full of shyt as usual.

Colorado State is decent. Tulane has been shredding the nets but haven't played any good defensive teams.  They barely beat LIU. They turn it over. They aren't a particularly good rebounding or defensive team.  They evidently can shoot inside and out but haven't been punched in the mouth yet.  We should win the TO battle handily. For goodness sake take care of the ball. And hit some 3s.  But 2s should be easier to come by this time.  These guys are big but not as big or tough as FSU, and now we have been up against it.  Will seem relatively easier.  But shots have to fall. Duh.

All I know is that Ohams had ice on his back in LIU game and took himself out.  I don't think Zarko is coming back at all.

Well, again, poor schollie management ? We are already down 2 players due to transfers. And they dont appear to be killer transfers.  It seems as if everyone knew Zarko would not be back. One injury and we are down to 9.

Two Lane  75    Fordham  50   ( which given my prior predictions bodes well for the rams).

Tulane is a high scoring team and I don't see us holding them down in the 60s. They're averaging 92 points a game. We're (one would hope) a different level of competition, but they have two very tall, high scoring guards in Reynolds and Frazier (6'7" and 6'6") who are going to be real match up headaches, to say the least. Either one can really light it up. Solve that and we have a chance. They have other decent players as well, but those two in particular worry me.

Tulane 81 Fordham 72 (sorry bros - hope I'm wrong)

They've been impressive shooting it but we are a very good defensive team. I'm more confident of us keeping them in the 60s than us getting into the 70s tbh. Our first seven turnovers against FSU were completely unforced. That can't keep happening.

I have a feeling that we are going to hit our 3's today, hit our free throws, play good defense and let Tavares drive the lane.  Tulane barely beat LIU so it's not like this is an impossible task.  If we play our game correctly, I think we win.  Prediction: Fordham 77 Tulane 74.

We need to hit our 3's to win. If we miss our 3's we lose, nothing else can stop that or counterbalance our 3's. Live or die by the 3.
