Re: 2020 Baseball Mega Thread

Disappointing start but hopefully they get things back on track. The Big South is a solid baseball conference. You can't lump conferences in baseball based on football standards. Coastal was technically still in the Big South when they won the national championship. Still...REALLY hope we show somet...

Re: Take a look at this oh powerful MMB!!

Hey, it's the off season so there are bound to be realignment fantasies to discuss. I get a little worn out with these. There is no doubt that the current conference alignments have evolved in a pretty bizarre way and don't make sense, but the idea of just starting from scratch to re-create them is ...

Re: NC A&T to the Big South

I don't think the KSU or Monmouth would dominate the SoCon. Neither plays a difficult OOC schedule at all. Although the SoCon is definitely not what it once was, Wofford remains pretty tough. Furman started out like gang busters but faded down the stretch. I can't say that I know much about Monmouth...

Re: Shawn Clark | Appalachian State | Grade: C+

They can assign whatever grade they want. What will matter is whether they have to come back in a year or two and re-grade based on results. I'm pretty sure they did post season grades on "new coaches" this past year. I know I'm biased but I believe his grade will trend a lot like the rankings of ou...

Re: Assistant Coaching Position Assignments

Dale Jones as DC is my biggest concern. Hopefully he has learned a lot and is better this time around. That's my thinking as well. I have to believe that he has learned some valuable lessons from his previous stent as DC and gained some very high quality experience since then. He has some good assi...

If he gets a top 4 seed he should by COY.
The "homer" in me agrees but Arkansas Little Rock won only 10 games last season and was picked near the bottom of the conference. I would say their coach has a pretty valid claim to the COY also.

Re: Petition to move App/GaSo to Saturday

Playing GS on Rivalry week makes sense on the surface, but playing them during the Thanksgiving break while students are off campus would probably not give us the lift we are hoping for.

Re: ESPN+ - App/Sunbelt needs to negotiate with ESPN+

10,000 is not much to a company and it is deducted as a business expense. True cost is about $7,000. Yes, I think many would buy. Are our numbers released on how many are watching our games on ESPN+? $7,000 would be a deal if the add ran every time we had a commercial break. Well, unless it is Amaz...

Re: An Interesting Take on 2020

It's the off season so this is the type of thing fans do...diving into stats and metrics to attempt to predict the next year. None of the models are particularly accurate at this stage because there simply isn't enough data. Attempting to impose context on all the teams in the FBS is a huge undertak...

Re: An Interesting Take on 2020

Lots of returning production from a 5-7 team is probably an indicator that they have a good shot at making a bowl this year but I think it's a jump to say they are a threat just yet. Never know though. Any team is a threat if we don't show up and play our game.

Come on, folks. There is a difference is press conference persona where he is talking about game prep vs. a miscellaneous recruiting video.

I guess in the technical sense, it might have been a flip in that he changed his decision but the reality is that it wasn't a one for one decision. I would view it as a true "flip" if he had a scholarship offer (regardless of position) and had verbally committed. It's all semantics though and nobody...
