Re: Justin Forrest Returning

The return of both seniors is definitely HUGE news. UNFINISHED BUSINESS! It will be interesting to see how things develop in the Belt with several other programs loading up on transfers. So, my understanding is that this leaves us with one more scholarship to offer. What is the best use of that sch...

Re: 21-22 Roster Breakdown & Wishlist

I posted a question about the best use of our remaining scholarship in the other thread. I should have posted here. Looks so far like others agree that picking up a big man would be the best use. Seems kind of obvious but with the emphasis on 3 point shooting in mid major basketball, I wasn't sure w...

Without resorting to gaggle, google, goggle, geegle or another website. One question, is Norfolk State an HBCU? Yes or no.
Yes

Re: App State Logo Designs?

The version of Yosef in "Flying Yosef" was terrible. That was during the period when everything was being sanitized and they "cleaned up" his look. The pipe was gone and the hat was smoothed out. It basically just looked like a boring dude in a hat and nothing about it said "Mountaineer." I liked th...

Re: 2021 Baseball Mega Thread

I don't know that I'm ready to write Coach Smith off, but I will say I was really disappointed with the UNCW series. I expected us to struggle against ECU and I know UNCW has a good program, but we should have represented better there. Hopefully we can get the wheels back on the cart going into conf...

Re: Going Dancin'

Someone help me understand how the play-in concept works. I don't understand why two of the "play-in" games are for an 11 seed. Why wouldn't they have all the play-in teams playing for a 16? That seems counter intuitive.

Re: The last time App went to the tournament ______

Some movie geek stuff: Kevin Feige was a young coffee runner sent over to FOX studios by Marvel Comics to keep an eye on the studio's new X-Men project. No one at Marvel, FOX, or Sony was listening to him shout about how all the Marvel property films should be set in a shared universe. Comic book s...

Re: App State Logo Designs?

Mountaineer Mania is one of the shops I check out regularly when I'm in Boone. Of course, that hasn't been as frequently over the past year but, based on my observations, they haven't really had much featuring their version of Yosef in recent years.

Re: The last time App went to the tournament ______

Lehman Brothers and Bear Sterns were still in business. And as bad as the SEC was then, they never would've allowed the investment banks to create make believe securities like mortgage-backed derivatives and credit default swaps that would end up wrecking the economy. Similarly Enron and WorldCom w...

Re: App State Logo Designs?

The current Yosef logo is nostalgic and I like it, but I have to agree that the Mountaineer Mania logo is the best version. I wish the University would negotiate a deal. I have talked with the owner of Mountaineer Mania and he was very interested in working with the U but never happened.

Who would have thought 6 months ago that the App BASKETBALL team would be dancing, but football would fail to make the CCG? The craziness never stops! Great year for the Apps!!!

Re: Going Dancin'

I've seen one prediction (Andy Katz's bracket prediction) that has us as a 15 seed playing Bama in the first round. I would be ecstatic with that, but I'm fine with wherever we land. Andy Katz works for the Big 10 Network.

Re: The streak is over!

It's an interesting academic argument that App hasn't won a "tournament" in 21 years, but it seems kind meaningless to subdivide championships based on format. Different sports lend themselves to different formats. When the championship is determined on the field of competition (as they all are now ...

Re: Going Dancin'

I still maintain that, without the unscheduled Covid break in our season, App would have picked up at least 2 or 3 more W's in conference play. The thing is, those losses probably helped fuel our tournament wins so maybe I shouldn't be second guessing things. Winning 4 games in 4 days is an amazing ...

Re: Sunbelt Tournament Rnd 1 vs Little Rock (3/5 8:30pm)

A couple of wins in the tournament would go a long ways toward improving the feel of this season. I think Kerns is doing an excellent job. The 19 day unscheduled hiatus really broke the momentum the Apps had building. Hopefully they have it back this Friday. I think we can pick up a couple here and ...
