Re: Troy

Georgia Southern will remain our traditional rival due to the history. It looks like they are returning to form, so at least it should be a decent game this year otherwise the shine could have continued to dim. Troy has tons of potential as a rival but Arkansas State definitely has more negative emo...

Re: New Mexico St and Idaho to date

NMSU had a strong final year in the Belt but they were riding a talented senior class that included a QB with a great arm and some outstanding receivers. Unfortunately they had no depth to replace them so it's back to the old status quo.

Re: Shaedon Meadors

I don't feel any need to throw barbs at Meadors. He certainly helped to turn around that 2014 season for us when he pulled off that red shirt and made some circus catches. I hate that he decided to exit the way he did. Hope he heels and finishes strong.

Re: Rescheduling Hypotheticals

Play Clemson 4 days after Arkansas State? Not likely! I think the most likely option was the one mentioned earlier. Play Southern Miss on 10/6 (both are open) and push the Arkansas State game to Saturday 10/13 instead of Tuesday 10/9. Of course this would require the cooperation of both Ark St and E...

Re: No game this weekend

As disappointing as it feels, it is the right move. A decision has to be made before Southern Miss starts to travel. The good news is that it looks like they are still trying to get it re-scheduled. I'm guessing the option mentioned previously of 10/6 with a re-scheduled Arkansas State game will be ...

Re: Vegas Line vs Southern Miss

I never could make sense of the Charlotte spread either. How in the world does that balance the money on both sides? I would think you'd have to give Charlotte more than 14 points before ANYBODY would bet on them. Oh well....on to the rest of the season. That one's in the books.

Re: Satterfield

Satterfield didn't hire the big time agent to stay in Boone for the remainder of his career. As much as we would love that, it isn't going to happen. That said, he didn't hire that agent to jump into a dumpster fire, or an ethics situation either. I also don't think he will want to jump into a situ...

Re: Missing an old "rival"

The WCU program has been a shadow of its former self since the mid/late eighties. Since Bob Waters' death (1988), they have never won more than 7 games. Since App left the SoCon and Mark Speir has coached WCU, they've done it three times. No other coach since Bob Waters has done it more than ONCE. I...

Re: Yeah.... don't do that....

The article still fails to make the very simple point that the University has a proper pronunciation for it's name that is distinct from the mountain range or the region. It's really that simple.

I've never been good at estimating the percentages of attendance and don't claim accuracy but I feel confident that at least half the bodies in the stadium were App fans.

Re: UNCC Game Thread

No doubt about the App domination. I actually thought we were a little flat last night, although we played hard when we needed to. It really is hard to get excited and focused about playing a team that you out class. That being said, Charlotte has found a decent QB and they will be better than last ...

Re: I'm curious, quick poll

The years following the Michigan win were frustrating because we were getting dominated by the P5 teams we played. We even had the disappointing performances against ECU...including the tragic "almost comeback" under Cadet...a game I believe we would have won if Armanti had been able to play (purely...

Looking for extra ticket Section 208

Last minute desperation attempt. I have not real expectation of success, but here goes.... I have two tickets in Section 208, Row S (seats 5 & 6). There is now a third person whom I would love to have attend the game, so if anyone has an extra ticket for sale in this area, I would like to hear from ...

Re: UNCC Week

Like most, I have some fear of a "let down" game, but I really don't believe it will happen. I think the team is going to be very hungry and motivated to show what they can do. I do think the play book will be more balanced and we'll see more from our RB depth, but I don't think Satterfield will let...

Re: Betting Lines

No doubt we should dominate this game even with a "B" effort, but I hope we show up with an "A" effort. We need to reverse the pattern from last year. After the emotional loss to Wake, we were totally flat against Texas State (another team we should have dominated and another team that had targeted ...

Re: Good article from Harry Minion--ODU beat writer

The solution proposed seems contrived to allow ODU to have the best of both (football and basketball). It's a contrived solution from the standpoint of almost every other team. The joint realignment of the Sunbelt and CUSA to form more geographically logical conferences makes much more sense as it's...
