Bob Toledo: For the first time, we have some quality depth

Tulane head coach Bob Toledo enters his fourth year as the leader of the Green Wave. 

Despite low outside expectations, Toledo expressed his confidence to Times-Picayune writer Peter Finney.

Toledo said, "I’ve read where we’re considered 120 in some list of 120 teams. To the pundits, we’re like some red-headed step-child. That’s OK. Our guys like the idea of playing with a chip on their shoulder, having to go out and prove it.’’

"We’re going to be bigger, stronger and faster than we were last year. This is my fourth season, and it seems like it’s my first team because they’re all my recruits.’’

"For the first time, we have some quality depth. I’ve never had a squad with such a can-do attitude, such a sense of pride.’’

Tulane opens on Thursday night against Southeastern Louisiana. The following week, the Green Wave will host the Ole Miss Rebels.
