Re: True freshman Sam Howell named UNC's QB1

Just comparing Howell vs. Fromm....both are 4-star QB out of high school. Fromm was rated .9794 and nationally ranked 44. Howell is rated .9582 and nationally ranked 93. By the numbers, Fromm has the edge but Howell is in the competition. The thing is that Fromm has performed well above his numbers....

Re: First game: ETSU

It has to cause a major problem for a program once they announce they are moving down. Since there is a reduction of 22 scholarships, there would have to be some pulling of scholarships (or splitting since in FCS you can give partials). I think you would almost NEED some attrition in order to get to...

Re: New 4 game series with Charlotte

I didn't realize they were switching to a Spread Option offense. That's a pretty major change, especially if they haven't committed to a QB yet. Could get interesting.

Re: NC A&T Looks to go FBS

For what it's worth over the past three years they have wins against ECU, Charlotte, and Kent State and a very powerful FCS Jacksonville State. Yes I know 3 out of 4 are not great FBS programs but it shows the program can at the very least compete at this level. Wish them the best of luck. Not to m...

Re: True freshman Sam Howell named UNC's QB1

I think the Trevor Lawrence reference wasn't an actual comparison. Someone just said "he could be as good as Trevor Lawrence....."

I don't think any actual comparison was intended. The statement was about the guys around him.

Re: NC A&T Looks to go FBS

I will actually be pretty surprised if they move up, especially if they chose to attempt moving up as an independent. I just don't see how that would be a good move, but I've been wrong plenty.

Re: NC A&T Looks to go FBS

It remains to be seen if NCA&T actually makes the push to move up and, if they do whether they receive an invitation...which I would see as a very long shot. If they wanted to move up as an independent and applied for a waiver, the NCAA is in a pretty precarious position. Liberty has the deep pocket...

Re: New 4 game series with Charlotte

IMO this is great as long as considered to be our only cupcake game on schedule per year. I want to see us play two P5s per year as things stand or before a significant rift change may happen. Some may say lofty goals but I don't like low sights any longer since we have gotten where we are. If we w...

Re: NC A&T Looks to go FBS

Money is the issue with every team that moves up. I assumed that would be their biggest barrier also, but I honestly don't know their financial position. They have a pretty good fan following and better attendance than CCU though. Other sports would be significantly behind.

Re: NC A&T Looks to go FBS

My first reaction is that it would be a big mistake for NCA&T to try to move up, but many people outside the App fan base believed the same thing about us....a some within. I've caught a few A&T games that were on tv and kept track of them because a former employee and friend is an alum. They are a ...

Re: First game: ETSU

I don't think Coach Drink is going to let the team look past anyone, especially his very first game as our head coach. He knows full well that starting his tenure at App with a loss to ETSU would put him in a huge hole. That would replace the Loss to Liberty (remember that one?) as our most embarras...

Re: Jerry Moore Plaza

I like this idea. Athletics is the "front porch" of our university and the "front porch" of our stadium is now named for a great coach! I feel like this is a fitting tribute for a great coach who played a significant role in elevating our program and in the development of App athletes for almost a q...

Re: SBNation UNC preview article - interesting

From what I've been reading about UNC and their new staff, they are wanting to implement a more "up-tempo" offensive scheme, including no-huddle and quick-snap plays. I've noticed us having some issues on defense from time-to-time (not all the time, but enough to be a little concerned) with this in...

Yes, it's a total "homer" write up. I think he tried to give App some good credit but clearly he did practically no research. He keeps saying we are changing to a pro-style under center offense which isn't true at all. He has no concept of our offensive philosophy (conservative, run first, ball cont...
