Re: App State Ice Hockey

I took in a first Rd playoff game between the Pens and Lightning and you are right about playoff hockey. If you ever get a chance to see take in a game in Tampa, I suggest it. They have Tesla coils in the rafters that generate their own lightning.

Re: App State Ice Hockey

Just my opinion but a hockey team would be a major drain on the athletic department budget and would generate little interest. I agree it would be expensive and not practical to add any time soon (let's revive the basketball program first) But I don't know about little interest. Hockey can be hard ...

Re: App State Ice Hockey

For one reason would be Title IX requirements. We would need to add some scholarships to women’s sports to compensate for the added Hockey ships.

Akin to our current basketball team.

Re: Benson other G5 Commissioners Oppose Expansion

Is the idea that CFP expansion would reduce bowls because the earlier rounds would presumably be on campus sites? Or is their some other rationale? If the playoffs were to expand, I think the bowls see themselves as going the way of the NIT. The non-playoff bowl games will take on less relevance. I...

Yes. There's a lively discussion thread in the Moose Lodge where those sorts of lively discussions need to reside.
Where is this discussion, I can't seem to find it, even with Moose lodge access?
2018 main football page. Title of thread is Next DC or something like that.

Re: New DC?

Agree with you on the mixed bag concerns. This a good hire for a couple of reasons. 1) Brown and Jones are good coaches and have been quite involved in this defense with play calling and scheme designs. Woody groomed them to take this role. How he did remains to be seen. 2) the pool of coaches avail...

BCS or CFP. It makes no real difference as it is all a popularity contest.

Re: Benson other G5 Commissioners Oppose Expansion

Heard one of the ESPN radio shows last Saturday and the guy made a great point- BCS college football is THE only major sport where, before the season starts,virtually half of the teams have zero chance to play for the championship, i.e. the G5’s. He was spot on. Basically a team like App would have...

I don’t like Appy either. I also am not a fan of App State. It looks weird to abbreviate the first name and spell out the second.

Yes the club is a not for profit so your donation is deductible, provided it takes you above the new standard deduction threshold. I beleive the ticket and other benefit deductions kick in based on the savings that you received or the value of gifts. I.e: AD gift, parking, season ticket pricing vers...

Re: Benson other G5 Commissioners Oppose Expansion

Paraphrasing a Scot Frost interview. The champion shouldn't be decided by a committee sitting in a conference room.

Until you give everyone an equal chance, it is always going to be debatable.

Saban has a ridiculous record against former assistants. Want Georgia to win but really don't care.
