Re: Predict Your Breakout Player for the 2019 Season

Someone has already mentioned Jalen Virgil and I know he's been around for a couple of years but I think last year he was a bit under utilized. It will be interesting to see whether Coach Drink's philosophy will find a way to use that speed. We now have a proven QB with an arm and a coach who likes ...

Re: Love Eric Church but damn it stop

Happens all the time. Stephen Curry's a die-hard Panthers fan & was caught cheering for the Eagles @ SB 52. Chris Kelly from Rock 92 is App State Alumni but cheers for UNC all the time. Besides, if you're offered a large sum of money to take a selfie with a coach, I'd do it. Luke Combs is better an...

Re: Improving a tradition

I like the "Welcome to the Rock" greeting just fine but I do think that it is past time for this line to be delivered by App connected people. I like Sean Connery....nothing against him at all, but he has zero connection to the university. We can have some "celebrity" alums (Yes Eric Church, Luke Co...

Re: CFN Picks App to win SBC

I didn't see Duck being targeted either. I would be interested in seeing any actual stats that might be available. This is the first and only reference I've seen stating that he was being targeted MORE than other DBs. In fact, that seems to be the opposite of most comments. Considering Georgia South...

Re: Appalachian Unpopular Opinions

Seeing Pollard succeed at Duke wouldn't be nearly as painful if his successor here at App hadn't tanked. As Smith gets things back on track, we will get more perspective. I think we will be able to accept Satterfield's success (hopefully) at Louisville because App football will continue to rise. At ...

Re: ETSU picks up Miami QB

Exactly. ETSU is good enough to serve their purpose on our schedule. We should need to actually play (unlike the Gardner Webb game last year which just got out of hand) but without huge issues, it will be a win.

Re: ETSU picks up Miami QB

Nobody is saying that we should be scared of ETSU. That would be ridiculous. Just don't take anyone for granted. Show up and play the game. There's nothing wrong with making predictions and expecting a win. We should win this game! Everyone should just understand it COULD turn into an actual game......

Re: ETSU picks up Miami QB

ETSU got a QB transfer from Temple earlier (Logan Marchi) so they will be deep at that position if this is true. I can't find anything specifying a destination. I'm sure they are both excellent quarterbacks, but neither seems to be super scary. Both are listed as pro-style QBs. It would make me more...

Re: Troy transfers

I really do understand the concept of "the next game is the biggest." That being said, even from a player / team perspective I'm not sure that concept has to be applied over the summer. I can't imagine many things more de-motivating to our guys that trying to focus solely on ETSU for the entire off-...

Re: Troy transfers

I assume the "Beat ETSU" posts are generally somewhat tongue in cheek. Although they are certainly based in the "one game at a time" concept, I think they generally signal fatigue with the off-season and with off-season topics of discussion. I guess I should let the actual posters speak for themselv...

Re: Troy transfers

Looks like the coaching transition in Troy will not be seamless, but they will definitely still be tough. Some of these returning starters might be transferring because they were in danger of losing playing time. You never know.

Re: Love Eric Church but damn it stop

Also....for the record, EC hasn't actually supported UNC in a head to head against the Mountaineers on the football field to my knowledge. I don't know where he comes down on that. I just don't think complaining on the message boards accomplishes anything. I hope App does the talking on the field.

Re: Love Eric Church but damn it stop

I do understand folks not liking the fact that ANY fans pulls for UNC. I'm even in that category! I understand feeling that disgust in the pit of your stomach seeing a celebrity alum supporting our cheating "flagship" university. All I can say is that, for ANY App alum who wears baby blue when App p...

Re: Love Eric Church but damn it stop

This would be funny if it were tongue and cheek, but if you are truly showing disdain for someone for liking something that you don’t, well that’s pathetic. Actually, it makes you worse than pathetic, it makes you sound like a Georgia Southern fan. It’s hurtful to Appalachian that one of our most f...

Re: End of Women’s Sports

I don't think being dismissive of the gender identity issue in total is really the answer. I just think this particular accommodation is not reasonable because it creates an unfair disadvantage for female athletes.

Re: Athlon 2019

This is not like with a game like UNCC where we did not play too great and still won big. What game did you watch? Other than Zac's fumble on the one we absolutely manhandled them. Zac went 14/14 for 3 TD's and our defense gave up 9 points. Could we have won by more? Absolutely. But on no planet wo...
