Re: TONIGHT BB GAME

There’s no debate that Cobb screwed up the hiring and termination processes during his tenure. The number of choices he got right could be count on one hand...that’s not my point in any of my posts. My opinion: I believe that Fox is the right person for App right now and I believe he has done a Her...

Re: Football team recognition

Still say that this would be better as a Yosef fundraising event. Hold it on Friday 7:30pm start 1.5 hours of signing pictures then comments. Give basketball tickets to those who want them. Have an event only item that can be signed. Charge adults $15 a head and children $10. It would do everyone be...

Sean May will be our next coach.
BEST RESPONSE EVER! I literally almost choked from laughing so hard! Thank you for that!!!!
No, May has served as DoBO at UNC for the last few years. That is way to much exp for a hire from the ACC for us.

A contract is a contract. He signed, ASU admin signed it. Let him finish it. A deal is a deal. Houston Fancher is available now, maybe will be next year. Who we going to get that's better?

Re: Fox

Just remember the dumpster fire that Fox inherited. The team is competitive this year; they just can't seem to finish. Let Fox finish his contract next year with what should be his best personnel on court and see what happens. This is the most sensible scenario. Looking ahead, next season's bar sho...

Re: Fox

My guess is his contract will be honored and he will have the chance to coach his most talented team. There will be no room for blaming everything on Jason Capel at that point. My question is, what result next season is needed to extend his time in Boone? Winning record Top half of Sunbelt finish A...

Re: Fox

Good players are recruited by the coach and his staff as well as the fans and community. How many good football players would be recruited b...

Re: Fox

Depends on the finish and if people are willing to pony up the money to buy him out.

Right now we are closer to "don't know how to finish" than "so close to turning the corner".

Maybe Kerr will have a opening on his staff and Curry and do some lobbying.

Re: Full Service Hotel

Do football teams typically stay in such close proximity to the stadium as a general rule? Do we stay at a hotel the night before a home game? I think that it depends on travel time. If you are coming in early to practice the day before and then go to game, then you don't want to have to bus player...

Re: Full Service Hotel

Full service hotels offer restaurants and / or catering as well as meeting rooms with appropriate AV capabilities. Most Boone hotels do not have sufficient meeting space for a football team. Or a basketball team... USF stayed at the Courtyard for the December 2 game. A Basketball team is 25 people....

Re: Should we ever actually consider moving games back to Varsity Gym?

With the stands that they have in there now, there is not really enough room for a wrestling mat or the volleyball court.

Re: North End Zone project update

I think Doug Gillin is smart enough to know if it makes sense to expand. He seems business oriented to me. I'm sure the club seats are the highest priority and quickest return. I was not a business major but this is how I see it. I think expanding could be beneficial. First table is current seats (...

Re: Poll: Non-Basketball Basketball Roll Call

Sorry to skew the poll. Shouldn’t have voted because I’m not Non-Basketball. Anyway, will be there for both. I added an option for people that regularly attend both. There were only 2 votes to this point. In this model, If you attend less than 3 BBall games a year, you are a "Non-Basketball" person.
