I actually like their helmet design. My top three are App State, Ark State and Georgia Southern.

Re: Okay, now I’m jealous...or envious

I seem to remember Orange on the tent, so I think it was Clemson. The Gboro team is in the league (NAL) the High Country team was in last year but this year the HC Grizzlies are in the AAL. Shame the few arena teams in the state could not all be in the same league and develop some rivalries but eac...

Re: NCheat State now part of b-ball scandal

I don't get the gloating. A black eye for other schools in our state/system does not make ASU look better. They could probably get dirt on any school in the ACC, and if we were in the ACC they would get us too.

Geez can we ever give the track discussion a rest? No The decision has been made to relocate the track. It will be taken care of soon enough. What will everybody complain about now?

How do you increase the "plaza" area, move the hill closer to the field and decrease the slope?

Re: App and South Carolina Schedule Series

My son is a USC grad and he says their message boards are having a melt down. Oh well! That's predictable and to some degree understandable. Some fans think playing a strong mid-major has drawbacks, and a few are clueless loudmouths. One well informed Gamecock fan compared us to Wofford and SC Stat...

Re: Major Announcement Tomorrow

I think it’s a fantastic deal for us actually. More money, more games shown on ESPN. If you can tell a recruit that every single home game will be on some form of ESPN that is huge. If the alternative was building some sort of “Sun Belt Channel” website where we stream everything but the biggest ga...

Re: Major Announcement Tomorrow

I also doubt this will have any negative impact on watching ASU football. ESPN is losing subscribers and desperate to increase revenue, but have serious doubts this paywall money grab is going to move the needle.They already have too much programming

Re: unc-harrisburg football message board

UNCC isn’t a basketball school, it’s just a school. I have to agree with this based on the UNCC alums I know. I am however old enough to remember the name Cornbread Maxwell and their run to the Final Four...more than 40 years ago. It's the 40 plus years since that leave a void when I try to associa...

Re: App @ Texas A&M in 2022

Anybody know what the difference in traveling costs, say to Wake Forest vs Texas A&M would be? Not factoring in possible payouts, just costs. And the number traveling? So do you mean a bus trip versus a plane trip? Bus would be cheaper I imagine but by how much, I don’t know. Aware that bus travel ...

Re: stAte Threatens to Sue Miami

I would suggest Miami just pay up and skip the trip, they don't want to go. The U, at least in their eyes, are on the rise and potentially in the playoff discussion in future years and an AState game in Ark does not move the needle in their favor. AState has more to loose by not hosting an agreeabl...

As far as past Super Bowls go, last year was a gift and so was the win over Seattle. They were also incredibly unlu...
