I think the F word should be worked into ALL chants. Saying it over and over and over and over and over and over and over again will cause that word to lose its venom.
If your "F word" contains venom then I think you might be doing it wrong.

Sorry...couldn't resist.

Re: SBC ITF Championship

The Belt is much stronger in general than the SoCon is in T&F. Arkansas State always has a solid team. I hope we climb from those positions though. I will be disappointed if we can't beat a 6/7 finish. We're just not as strong this year. I believe, the women won the title last year. So it seems. On...

Re: CLASSLESS JERK!!!!!!!!!!

There's nothing wrong with holding a high standard for behavior and sportsmanship, but this does appear to be a bit of an over reaction. This type of taunting is status quo for sports. The truly unfortunate part is that we don't fill up the arena enough to drown them out. Hopefully we continue to ge...

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

I don't know what schools like UNC or USC (when they played in Charlotte on Thursday) have done in the past, but I think a Thursday night, neutral site game definitely warrants academic scheduling changes (i.e. cancelling classes), especially for ECU students. UTK did it when we played them at home...

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

I respect that some are trying hard to point out the "silver lining" in this situation but the bottom line is that this sucks! This issue has a direct impact on the Mountaineer athletic budget unless some sort of compensation can be included in the deal. From a personal stand point, it doesn't impac...

Re: 2020 Depth chart

It's hard to guess at the RB position. Even with the loss of Evans, we have a lot of returning talent. I've been a fan of Williams for a couple of years and believe he was under utilized. That said, Peoples probably has the higher up side potential. At the beginning of the year, I would expect to se...

Re: Armanti's Last Game?

It's true that very few great players become great coaches, BUT my theory is that is because many of them excel based on natural talents that can't be taught. Michael Jordan can't teach just any player to do what he did because very few can leap like he could, or have his natural athleticism. Where ...

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

If we don't get some type of money out of this, than we really screwed up in writing the contract. My guess is BOA is paying App and ECU to move the game to Thursday, and perhaps paying us well. Really can't imagine writing that contract in a way that lets the stadium out of the deal without anythi...

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

That WS Journal article makes it sound unlikely that App is going that see much compensation out of this unless the CSF is offering something outside the terms of the existing contract. It seems like they would need (or at least want) to do that to ensure both games are played in Charlotte. If the C...

Funny that they think we could "share a conference title".
I thought the same thing! Apparently they haven't figured out that the Belt has a CCG now.

Re: ESPN Pre-Season Top 25

UGA returns 3 starters on offense, has to replace half of the defense and is rated 4th? Talent disparity in college football gets ridiculous sometimes.

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

I certainly wasn't questioning whether the "bump" was happening. I'm just saying we are probably getting paid something in order to move the game. Generally, to change a contract would require some sort of consideration be given to the parties, or that there be agreement on some basis. Maybe it inv...

Re: Most memorable play ever?

Here is an oldie that I never hear mentioned. I'll admit I'm biased in favor of DJ. 1992, DJ Campbell threw for 3 touchdowns in the final 2 minutes at JMU to come from behind and win 27-21. I'm working from memory since I am unable to locate a game recap, but as I recall the receiver was on the grou...

Re: 2020 Baseball Mega Thread

Can't get back on track unless you're on track to begin with. :) Regardless of how solid The Big South is or isn't, starting year four off by getting swept by Gardner Webb isn't good. Then again, maybe they (G-W) will be in the CWS this season. Hoping for the best, need to get on track today. Ha! G...

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 ...
