Once you get past high 4 star recruits it’s a crap shoot.....
Case in point. Our one time recruit DJ Williams was a two star until after his season ended. Then when his playing career ended, he went to a four star.

Re: 2019 would you rather

You start with the premise that we go 10-2. I know our goals are to win SBC and bowl. I have repeatedly stated our "additional" goals should now be make NY6 and win it. It is a guarantee that two losses will absolutely eliminate us from making the NY6, probably one loss therefore in your scenario w...

Re: 2019 would you rather

The #1 goal of any program is to win your conference first and everything else will fall into place. What “everything else’ includes is up for debate, as it means something different to every program. For some it means the CFP, for G5 programs, like us, it means discussions for the NY6. Beating P5s ...

Re: 2019 would you rather

Not referencing the person who posted the topic, but reading through some answers I have a serious question. Do many of you feel that 9-3 or 8-4 is where we are headed? Presumably due to new coach? Personally I think 10-2 or 11-1 is attainable, and undefeated is more possible than any season in fbs...

Re: At Tennessee this weekend

Guys I know the scores were all goose eggs everyday but in the teams defense there were a lot of hard hit balls that were hit right at them ,they made great defensive plays and one sports center play with catch on wall . I attended them games since it was close to home and in there defense they pla...

Re: 2019 would you rather

Beating P5s is great but it isn’t that big of a deal to the world. Boise St probably has had the most success at it but outside of Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl, can you name one that was a significant victory? Now if we win the Conference, get a NY6 bowl and beat one, then now you’re on to something.

Re: 2019 would you rather

I’ll take the two Carolina wins hands down, just because that’s the one thing we haven’t been able pull off yet. It has been widely speculated that we may have the second best (Clemson of course being first) football program in the Carolinas. I like to believe this, but don’t think there’s anything...

Re: 2019 would you rather

I can see either side, but for me, take the two P5 wins. Would suck to lose the conference, but nobody outside the Sun Belt cares who wins this league. Biggest disappointment for me would be another trip to Bama instead of NOLA. Another SBC title would be nice but wouldn't really advance the progra...

Re: 2019 would you rather

I’d go with the P5 wins. A 10-2 record and a trip to the same old Belt bowl tie ins is nothing new. It would mean that the Belt is pretty good also. We are pretty much at NY6 or bust now. We have won conference titles, a championship game and all the bowl games we have played. Only box not checked ...

Re: Lance Ware to ASU

Having someone like Coach Ware will help in not breaking what is not broken with Appalachian Football. I hope that having Lance Ware in the position he is in will act as a safety net when Drinkwitz leaves. I expect that he will take his quarterback with him just like he did at Boise State. He didn'...

Re: At Tennessee this weekend

I'm not jumping off any bridges about one series, albeit one very lackluster series at the plate. I hope the hitting will come around. And just for what it's worth, New Mexico State scored 62 runs in a doubleheader Saturday. Damn! Can we see about getting some of those bats? When is the NCAA trade ...

Re: At Tennessee this weekend

I know a couple of things about baseball. Hitting can come around. Let’s hope it does. Poor defense and poor pitching hardly ever gets better. In fact, it usually gets worse, as the slow hitting teams start to heat up. I would agree with this. Pitching and defense has to be a constant for consisten...

Re: 2019 would you rather

Usually I’d say win the conference, but in this case, the latter. It would do so much for us recruiting-wise in the two states , and in many other ways. Plus, my sister went to CHeat, and Thanksgiving dinner would taste sooooo much better. It also could be interpreted that the league is that tough....

Re: 2019 would you rather

I'd clearly trade one loss to a western SBC team for those two wins as we'd still get to play for the SBC title. Two losses is a great question, I'd give a slight lean to going undefeated in OOC and then kick myself in early December for putting a hex on the season. I'd take 10-2 with one OOC and o...

Re: 2019 would you rather

Easily beat the Carolinas. Anyone who doesn't say this vastly overestimates the importance of the sunbelt conference. Fair point. Let me add this caveat. Should we win the P5 games and both teams finish with 7-5/6-6 records. Would that take some of the luster off the wins? I will caveat that with t...
