  1. How do you think Tulane handles the adversity of playing their first game after the serious injury to Devon Walker?   Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): I think it'll be very emotional for them as they get back in the swing of things for the first time since the injury. I don't expect the game to be very close, but I'd be shocked if Tulane gave...
