Re: Editorial and HS FB news from triangle area

Whether we like it or not high school football and really youth football is less popular than at any previous time I can recall. My high school which was wildly football crazy and regularly having 60 kids on the varsity, now has barely 30. This long term trend will effect college and the NFL. I ass...

Re: Editorial and HS FB news from triangle area

In this morning's Greensboro paper there was an editoral about Ed Hardin writing about the shoe scandal at UNC-CHeat. The writer identified as an App fan. I left the.paper at work and don't have it in front of me to paraphrase and give the author's name. In other news paper clippings ( this from to...

Re: MSOC Friendly: Apps @ Radford Wed 6 PM Cupp Stadium

Damn that stadium is absolutely sick. Obviously it's difficult with soccer being during the same season as football, but I do kinda wish we'd invest more in our soccer program one day. I think App is the exact type of school soccer could thrive at AGAIN when you consider the culture at App. FTFY in...

Re: App Finishes Out 2020 Schedule

I don't have a problem playing GW per se. One FCS a year is ok by me. However GW had one win last year and that was over DII Shorter. Sometimes you don't know what you are going to get when you schedule a few years out, but right now this is not the most compelling FCS game. The next time we play th...

Re: App Finishes Out 2020 Schedule

A FCS, and especially one against a MEAC team, is an easy buyout. I have no problem with it. Gotta have somebody to offset the game at Wisconsin. Personally I'd rather buy out UMass. Why would you rather buy out UMass? Like an FCS game, they're bad enough that beating them does nothing for us. Unli...

Re: Happy Valley Welcome

Thanks for the info. I did learn a few things. Does the state of Penn have any true public universities? U of Penn is Private, I think, and I think Temple is kind of in that same funding zone as Penn St from what I have read about Temple. If Penn St goes private what happens to the name? There is al...

Re: App Finishes Out 2020 Schedule

I also understand the reasoning behind FCS games, but I wonder what it would cost to bring WCU, Furman, Citadel to KBS. I would love to see those three in the future. Especially The Citadel. I still have a bad taste in my mouth just thinking of those guys. If our former SoCon rivals want to make th...

Re: $21M Got the Heels out of their Mess

I don't have it in front of me, but the Greensboro paper had an article today about UNC spending money on an affirmative action lawsuit. About the same amount of money. I have not read either article in full. I assume these are separate things.

Re: Happy Valley Welcome

Hello all. I wanted to stop by here and extend an invitation to our tailgate for anyone who makes the trip to the Penn State game. We have a lot of respect for your program. Appalacian State became a program that I admired when in 2007 you took down Michigan. I still think about that today and is p...

Re: Southern Miss suspends senior QB

The article said he started 7 games. Our QB started none. Good. They are due a loss from us. Should have one the first showdown. FTR, the first showdown with Southern Mississippi was in 1937 in a bowl game in Biloxi, Miss. We lost 7-0. The ONLY points scored on us the ENTIRE season. It does haunt m...

Very illogical. If we are as bad as River Rat states then we are not helping the power ratnk of Penn St if they beat us.

Re: Wake BB assistant in big trouble

Is the second "he" referring to the coach, which I understand is the first "He," or is the second "he" the person that was apparently drunk. It seems both had control problems.

Maybe it is just because I am not a car person at all and my cars generally run on the crappy to really crappy side but I just can't imagine going to fisticuffs over someone banging on my car.
