Tulane head coach Willie Fritz says the inability to throw the football with success is a team problem, not an individual one.

True freshman quarterback Jonathan Brantley made his first college start last Saturday night against Navy. Brantley completed 3 of 12 passes for 21 yards. He says he will be better against the Cajuns Saturday night.

Here’s our report from Tuesday’s practice.

Tulane is last, 128th,  in the Football Bowl Subdivision in passing yards. Tulane is averaging 55.7 yards per game. Tulane quarterbacks have yet to throw a touchdown pass this season.
