Re: FCS Championship, JMU vs. NDSU, Noon, ESPN2

I watched the JMU / NDSU game Saturday....well, multi-tasking but I had it on. These are two good teams, but neither would have beaten App this past season if we played like we did in the last 4 games. If we played like we did against ULM, Texas State or UMass, we might have been in trouble. both ha...

Re: Straight up pickem .....CFP National Championship

There is Alabama.... then there is the rest of college football. That has been true for the past several years but Georgia will be better over the next two years. Chubb and Michel graduate, but Swift and Company will pick up the gauntlet. The OL is going to be unbelievable once this years true fres...

Re: Final AP

Link below http://www.espn.com/college-football/rankings/_/poll/1/week/1/year/2017/seasontype/3 I do find it interesting that we didn't get any votes for blowing out the MAC champion in the bowl. One game isn't going to get us ranked. Why would anyone expect a 9-4 Sunbelt team to get ranked in the ...

Re: Georgia State steps in it...

I don't think it would be similar to us supporting UNC, because we have a better program. It would be more similar to UNC Charlotte supporting us. No, although we are certainly beyond UNCC in our football program, UNC is the state "flagship." If you think basketball it would make more sense. GSU wa...

Re: Georgia State steps in it...

I honestly don't see a big problem with a university supporting a "sister" institution in a game like this. As someone else pointed out....GSU is trying to score public recognition points wherever possible. I'm not saying I'd love it if App did something like this, but I wouldn't lose my mind either...

Re: New DC?

Just a general comment: Promoting internally is a mixed bag, but Satterfield does show the ability to evaluate and identify talent in both players and coaches. In today's world where upward mobility often requires changing organizations, the history of internal promotions can provide an intangible t...

Re: Ranking the college football coaches in bowl games.

Wow. That's an amazingly high ranking. I'm not sure the ranking has much quantitative merit but it's great press any time App gets ranked among the likes of Alabama, Georgia and the other elites.

Re: UCF big win for g5

Setting the NY6 bowl at a goal is fine. Setting it as the benchmark against which success is measured is not reasonable. I completely "get" being disappointed when we feel the team is under performing. I just don't really agree that the NY6 goal a stated goal for the team, largely because there are ...

Re: Next DC

I was reading about the JMU DC also. Pretty impressive guy. Yes, he's an older guy so I'm not sure he's looking to leave. If he did come to App, at least he probably wouldn't be looking to jump. I assume he is either wanting a place to retire or he has found it already at JMU. I think they're paying...

Re: SoMiss vs FSU

I was trying to figure how we have 2/3 of the OL returning, but I guess he's including the TEs. I think that's a little misleading in that we do have to replace two of our starting big men with much less experienced players. I think we've had a couple of good recruiting years but that is my single b...

Re: QB next year

Also, as we’ve seen in past years, just because you’re starting the first game doesn’t mean you’ll keep the job all year. We’ve had a couple freshman QBs move into the starting job after a couple games and go on to pretty good careers. What he said! I wouldn't be surprised to see one QB in the open...

Re: First To Be A P5 Head Coach?

I imagine that Satterfield knows the university is doing everything it can within the budget available. As others pointed out, if a P5 comes calling, we will not be able to counter by out-bidding them. There are tons of variables in evaluating the "race" to a P5 head coaching position here. Brown mi...

The most notable thing that made Toledo flat was our defensive team speed.
No argument from me. The D was playing lights out!

Re: Game

I really enjoyed watching the game this year because App showed up focused and ready to play. I don't see anything wrong with what Rocket_Fanatic said. Toledo looked flat last night. A big part of that was a smothering App Defense, but it is also completely possible that they took App lightly and th...

Love that Yosef logo in the last avatar. Wish that was the main logo instead of the tired old looking Yosef we have I have always liked the Mountaineer Mania version of our logo and I agree.

Re: Lines for App v Toledo

We have not upset a single opponent this year nor for some time. Time to step up our game and play like we are capable of playing. This year has been frustrating but if not for special teams issues (penalty and block) we would have upset Wake, although it wouldn't have been a big upset. Same for Te...

Re: Worthy of Ole Miss transfers?

I definitely don't think there is any doubt that App is "worthy" but I don't know that we would be on their radar. It wouldn't be back to pick up a couple of quality OLs if they fit into our program. Maybe a LB/DB with all we have graduating.

Re: Lines for App v Toledo

I kind of like playing the underdog in this one. It kind of suits this year's team and could help motivate them. I'm not a betting man, so the Vegas lines don't mean much to me otherwise.

Shawn is doing a great job at GSU and we are happy with Satterfield for as long as we have him. Both appear...
