Re: Ted Roof Crow Thread - Come Get Your Dinner

The defense played great! Still a lot of work to do with the corners and on pass d. Had a few great stops but the last drive in the first half hurt. Great win and the d held up just enough even being gassed in the second half. Keep working and getting better every game! The DBs have room to improve...

Re: Eric Church

Like I said on a Facebook post, App went so far to give Church his own line of App merchandise. If you cant stay loyal to your alma mater which invested in your brand than you can go piss up a rope. I’d rather have some other well known App like Charlotte Flair carry our banner than a band wagoner ...

Re: Mack Brown: bless his heart

I didn't see his post game comments, but I did see half time. He was making similar comments but did comment that App was playing well. It's hard to disagree and generally the fan base will accept an issue that can be "fixed." Telling the UNC fan base that the other team just beat you, etc. is never...

Re: Ted Roof Crow Thread - Come Get Your Dinner

DT’s plays were all self audibles. 🤥 Why did Roof go to the box? 469 yards 29 first downs, 31 points and 323 yards passing. More than UNC has had against anyone else except by 14 yards to USC. I’ll admit to crow being in the oven, but it is far from edible. Great Win! UNC is playing a true freshman...

Re: Official Talking Toes prediction thread

I never try to predict a score because my homerism interferes with my judgment. With regard to the D, I will just point out that in 2014, one week before we finally turned the corner at Troy, our D was torched for 55 points against LIBERTY (FCS). In that game, it wasn't even mental errors and penalt...

Re: Split loyalties

not only did Howell's dad matriculate to App--so did his mom...and his sister...and his brother. Mountaineers all--with a lone exception! Thanks Chuck, I did not realize that. His dad goes by nickname "Duke". He was a state champion wrestler, do not know whether he wrestled at App. I believe he is ...

Re: Mack Brown Presser

The real question is can Coach Brown coach the arrogance out of his players? He may be the only one taking us seriously. I hope Clemson drops them below .500 at 2-3 with a 3 game skid. Let's hope not. Well, I'd say Clemson beating UNC is about as close to a "given" as you're going to get in footbal...

I just wanna see our standard business trip attire: black lid, white jersey, black pants. 9-1-07 was great, but we need a new P5 win.

Re: Ted Roof Comments

Yeah, wouldn't it be horrible to go undefeated but have our Defensive ranking drop to 30? I don't know if we could stand that. Howell (UNC) looked pretty good when he had time but it looks like he will get rattled if pressured. He's also not particularly mobile from what I saw, which favors App. If ...

Re: Ted Roof Comments

If you remove two long running plays (appeared to be the exact same play), a few missed tackles and if our young DBs will turn their head occasionally, the game looks very different. I could be wrong but the issues seem to be very coachable. It's NOT like they were simply out "athleting" us (I know....

My immediate family graduated from App, UNC-G and NCSU. There is zero division over this weekend. Everyone is united against the boys in baby blue.

Re: UCF are you kidding me

Right now UCF has competition from the Mountain West. Hawaii has two P5 wins and Boise State has a win over FSU. If one of them wins out, UCF is probably going to be going to an AAC bowl. Their easy schedule isn't going to turn many heads this year.

Re: UNC @ Wake (9/13)

Next week will be two teams, both hungry and wanting to prove something. That's exactly as it should be. No excuses for either team. If App has addressed the concerns on D (which I believe they will) and shows up motivated (can't imagine they won't) then I see no reason we can't win. Neither team wi...

Re: "Poor Performances" in the past 3 years

I agree. His record does speak for itself. Here is a summary of the programs where Roof has coached since 2008 and how they've all done in terms of the ranking of the Defense (total D). Let's look: Comments by school: Minnesota: Hard to evaluate. This is one of his only stops where his ranking was w...

Re: Perfect Scenario Brewing for Tarheel Game

I hate to throw any cold water on the thread, but how does the fact that four coaches on staff at UNC are former App coaches impact their likelihood of "overlooking" App? Mack and Sparky both date back to the "old school" App, but Stacy Searels and Lonnie Galloway probably remember us pretty well. ...

Re: "Poor Performances" in the past 3 years

The flaw in your reasoning is that those past turnarounds were with either inexperienced coaches, or experienced coaches who had proven they could recover.....there was reason for hope. We now have an experienced DC who has proven he can't turn things around.....over and over......big difference. B...

Re: Perfect Scenario Brewing for Tarheel Game

I have to admit that I'm somewhat torn tonight. I know that it is in App's best interest for UNC to win (both in keeping them cocky and SOS) but I usually pull for Wake and State in the ACC and I ALWAYS like seeing UNC lose. I think that, if we have our intensity and execution where it should be, we...
