    Tulsa Recruiting & Game Summaries 2009

    Tulsa Recruiting Big Board 2009:


    1. ** HB, Patrick Donaldson
    Patrick Donaldson has decided to become the first solid committment for the Hurricanes 2009 class. Out of Desoto, Texas, he measures 6'2" and 215 lbs and has been clocked in the 40 yard dash at 4.56. With the strongest bench of all running back recruits in the nation at 432 lbs, he has used his physical attributes to run over the high school competition. Rivals OFFL-MM currently has him ranked as the #75 HB prospect in the nation.

    2. *** Center, Adam Henry
    Adam Henry is a local prospect out of Sand Springs, Oklahoma, that dreamed of playing for the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. At 6'1" and 282 lbs, he is best known for his pass blocking skills. Adam is currently rated the #23 center in the nation and chose Tulsa over Colorado.

    3. *** OLB, James McKinney
    James Mckinney is from Wewoka, Oklahoma. At 6'2" 232 lbs, James is a run stopper and has great pursuit angle instincts.

    4. *** DE, Ryne Sims
    Ryne Sims is another Oklahoma product and is easily the most highly touted prospect so far in this years recruiting class. Ryne will bring speed off the edge that currently does not exist on the Tulsa roster. Look for him to challenge for playing time immediately. He chose Tulsa over offers from Texas A&M, Texas Tech & Miami and is rated the #9 DE prospect.

    5. ** MLB, Caleb Seals
    Caleb is from Midwest City, Oklahoma. He measures at 6'2 237lbs and fills a position of great need for the Golden Hurricanes. His #1 attribute is hitting power and looks to bring his nasty attitude to a defense that is sorely lacking.

    6. *** OLB, Kyle Sanders
    Kyle Sanders is from Choctaw, Oklahoma. At 6'3" 234 lbs, Kyle is a fierce run stopper and is highly regarded as a pure tackler. He chose Tulsa over Colorado State.

    7. ** FS, Larry Young
    Larry Yound is from Columbia, Missouri. At 6'1" 186 lbs, he is a great all around athlete. He brings acceleration, agility, jumping & stamina attributes that will be a major upgrade at FS.

    8. ** DE, Derrick Richardson
    Derrick will bring added depth to a thin defensive line. Known as a run stopper, his best attributes are block shedding & hitting power.

    2009: Tulsa 37 vs. Tulane 20

    (AP) -- G. Kinne passed for 194 yards as Tulsa beat Tulane 37-20 in the season opener for both teams Thursday night.

    G. Kinne also led the team in rushes on 20 carries for 84 yards and two touchdowns as the Hurricanes racked up 175 yards rushing on 41 carries.

    The Hurricanes (1-0) were down 6-0 early in the first quarter and holding Tulane to two field goals off turnovers. The Hurricanes quickly responded with a TD to take a 7-6 lead and never trailed again. It was a slow night as the opening game jitters and rust seemed to get the best of both teams at times. Coach Wildcatter78 was happy with the win and to escape the game without any serious injuries.

    Tulsa 65 North Texas 21

    Tulsa (2-0) 65 North Texas 21

    The Oklahoman: We expected fireworks when these two hire powered offenses squared off but we didn't expect the way Tulsa went about it. After a sluggish offensive performance against Tulane in game one, Coach Wildcatter lit the midnight oil and went to work to right the ship. And the hard work paid off in a 65-21 offensive blitz, in which, the Hurricanes unleashed a devastating rushing attack on the Eagles.

    Tulsa finished the game with 53 rushing attempts for 278 yards and 6 TD's. The offense also generated 250 passing yards and 3 TD's on 15 attempts for a total of 528 yards. Yes, a 3:1 run to pass ratio! But, the more things that change, the more they stay the same. Look a little deeper into the stats and you will find Tulsa near the top of D-1 in total offense and near the bottom in total defense. If Tulsa wants to compete for the C-USA championship, Coach Wildcatter will have to get his defense to step up.

    Co-MVP's:

    Tony "Man of the" Peoples (HB)
    6 rushes, 79 yds, 2 TD's
    4 receptions, 114 yds, 1 TD

    Next week, the Tulsa Hurricanes travel to Norman to take on the highly touted Oklahoma Sooners. The Hurricane attack will be without their starting HB, Jamad Williams, who bruised his shoulder and is out for 2 weeks.

    OU 19 Tulsa 14

    OU (3-0) 19 - Tulsa (2-1) 14

    Hearts of fans at Owens Field began to sink and scoreboard watchers from around the country were in disbelief as the ticker read 20-19 Tulsa...

    The Oklahoma Sooners came in to the game rated #2 in the country and a huge favorite over their cross state foe the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. Most pundits predicted a Sooner blowout along with the "can either team play defense" type of comments. Vegas had the original total points scored at 75 but the line quickly moved up to 81 with the amount of action taken on the over.

    But, that's why they play the games folks. The contest quickly turned into a defensive struggle as neither offense could find itself each gaining less than 300 yards total offense for the game. The Sooners struck first near the end of Q1 with a TD followed by a missed XP. On the ensuing Tulsa possession was able to answer with a TD to take the lead 7-6. The Sooners took control of the middle quarters taking a lead of 16-7 before allowing the Golden Hurricanes a chance to climb back into the game giving up a TD but maintaining a 16-14 lead. In Q4, the Sooners tacked on a FG to go up 19-14 and had possession of the ball near the Tulsa 45 yard line with under 2 minutes to play.

    As Bradford prepared to snap the ball to call a screen to DeMarco Murray, the Golden Hurricane defense was ready. The defense quickly covered Murray as the ball arrived and caused him to lose enough of his concentration to drop the ball after the catch. It was caught/picked up by the Tulsa defense and returned for a 60 yard TD! The scoreboard flashed 20-19!

    Sitting in the silence of disbelief watching the Golden Hurricanes celebrate, the Sooner crowd began pointing towards the field and a slow rumbling roar began to take hold. A flag had been thrown on the play and Bradford was indicating it was against Tulsa. IT WAS! Flagged for a clipping penalty on the return, the TD was not allowed. Scoreboard 19-14 Sooners.

    The reversal of fortune quickly deflated the Tulsa squad. Even though they had the ball and enough time on the clock to win the game, the crowd and Sooner defense sensed blood in the water. The Sooners attacked and were able to force an interception. Sooners win, Sooners win...

    Coach Wildcatter78 was emotionally spent after the game. He said he destroyed the game film and would not make his team relive this moment (sorry guys, I was flustered and exited the game before saving highlights).

    Oklahoma 19 - Tulsa 14

    Week 6: Tulsa (4-1, 2-0) 31 - North Carolina 3

    MUSCLE FLEXED!

    Tulsa Golden Hurricanes have a mean streak? From the opening kickoff, Tulsa brought the fight to UNC and didn't back down. By the end of the game, Tulsa dominated both offensively and defensively with a final score victory of 31-3.

    Leading 7-3 at the end of Q1, Tulsa scored 14 unanswered in the Q2 to lead 21-3 at half. The second half saw more of the same. Tulsa scoring an additional 10 points while shutting out the Tar Heels. UNC only managed 5 first downs and were held to 96 total yards of offense! Tulsa's defense continues to shine as they have only given up 251 yards this year on the ground which is 2nd in the nation.

    [YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/gxxslBGOsa4&hl=en&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/gxxslBGOsa4&hl=en&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

    The Tulsa offense fed off of the defense and ran all over the UNC. 55 rushes netted 256 yards on the ground and QB G.J. Kinne completed 13-17 for 176 yards in the air netting 432 yards of total offense.

    POTG: HB J. Williams. 35 rushes, 185 yards & 2 TD's.​

    Tulsa 31 - Boise St. 45

    Golden Hurricane Downgraded to Tropical Storm

    The Tulsa Golden Hurricanes travelled to Idaho on Saturday to take on favored Boise State. In what appeared to be an upset in the making, in a matter of 30 seconds, Boise seized control and took the victory.

    Boise St. on defense and down 24-28 with 0:31 seconds left in the 3rd quarter, was able to pick off a deflected pass and return it to the house for a TD and the lead. On the ensuing possession with , the Broncos again, were given a gift of a wounded duck by Tulsa QB Kinne that resulted in a pick six and a 35-24 lead as time expired in the 3rd. The broncos would go on to win 45-31.

    Tulsa will now move back into conference play and continue to grind out their tough schedule with their second of four straight user games with only one at home.​

    Man, that user schedule turned out to be pretty tough...I guess that's what we get when new guys take over teams that were initially planned to be CPU games. Sorry about that!! Ha...

    Tulsa 44 - SMU 33

    LACKLUSTER PERFORMANCE OVERSHADOWS CONFERENCE VICTORY


    As expected, Tulsa won on their home field versus the SMU Mustangs on Saturday with a final score of 44-33. What wasn't expected was the lackluster performance primarily from the defense and special teams.

    At the end of the 2nd quarter leading by 2 possessions, the defense gave up a hail mary TD as time expired to send the game into halftime with a clear shift in momentum.

    In the 3rd quarter, Tulsa was able to regain the momentum but, again, in the 4th it was lost when the special teams gave up 2 onside kicks followed by the defense allowing the Mustangs to score TD's on each possession.

    Overall, SMU out gained the Golden Hurricanes and was able to rack up an incredible 619 total yards. This was the best performance of the year by SMU, however, it still resulted in a loss.

    Tulsa moves to 6-2 (4-0) and next week travels to rival Houston to battle for the C-USA West conference lead.

    Week 11: ECU vs. Tulsa

    Game 1:

    ECU came into Tulsa as the favorite boasting a #3 national ranking going an impressive 9-0 with key wins over several traditional powerhouses. The key to their season, has been the steady leadership by the senior laden team along with the impressive play by their defense, specifically the defensive line.

    Both offenses came out of the gate putting up impressive, sustained scoring drives. At the end of the first quarter each team was knotted up at 7-7.

    In the second quarter, Tulsa moved into scoring position before giving up a sack and really putting pressure on their young QB G.J. Kinne. On the next snap, he threw an ill advised pass across his body which was intercepted near the goaline by ECU.

    The pirate's offense continued to look good as they were able to move down the field and score a TD to take their first lead at 14-7. With 3 minutes to play, Tulsa's offense again was on the field and needing to answer. QB Kinne, was able to regain his composure and lead a methodical drive down the field. On second & short from the 15 with 40 seconds to play, Kinne ran an option and pitched to HB Peoples for a scamper into the endzone to knot up the game at 14.

    ECU received the ball with about 30 seconds to play before halftime. As the team began their first play of the drive, the GAME DISCONNECTS. Sorry, the first 30 minutes you guys invested in this game was a waste of time.

    Game 2:

    So, the coaches had to pull their players off the field and explain that they were going to restart the game and give it another shot. Coach Wildcatter78 was under a tight playing window as he is set to leave town after the game and be gone until Friday.

    Coin toss. ECU wins the toss and elects to kick off. This is the highlight of game two because the game disconnected again on the kickoff.
