Re: UCF big win for g5

If I'm UCF, I'm claiming the national title this year. Tee-Shirts, Rings, Parade - the whole bit. If the P5 won't let undefeated UCF in their playoff, then they lose the right to tell UCF they're not the best FBS team. UCF beat everyone on the schedule and as stated above beat the team who beat bot...

Apparently our coaches and players got really drunk last night...

Never ever play us again
Last night? It looks like they got drunk at the pre-game meal.

Re: Should we ever actually consider moving games back to Varsity Gym?

I was a student while they were considering building the convo center and then starting construction. I went to most of the games in the last years of Varsity, Apke's last 2 years and Buzz's first 2. There were some great games, playing Ga Tech with Bobby Cremins and Kenny Anderson and beating a top...

Re: Interesting Idea ---

There was an interesting and detailed proposal over at the realignment section of the board hosting the Sun Belt forum. Short summary version of his very detailed post is a 12 team playoff (10 conf champs, 2 at large) Basically, bottom 4 seeds play a 2 week/4 team playoff for the 8 seed in the quart...

Just in case Scott leaves. Thoughts on us having a shot at getting Mike Houston from JMU. Incredible coaching record and many jobs coaching in NC. He is kicking butt in FCS.
Tennessee is probably considering Mike Houston at this point in their mess.

I don't worry about him interviewing. It's a compliment to our program and what we have built.
I might also be a case of Satt leveraging the administration for a pay raise, which if feasible he deserves.
Let's get a bigger buyout with a home and home scheduling clause in his contract.

Re: @ VCU

We still hold a 2-1 all-time lead on them. I thought we lost to them previously in Richmond. Edit: I guess we won that one 73-70. We fell behind in that game by, I want to say, 18 points in the second half, but stormed back late to steal the game. I held out hope for a similar result last night, bu...

Re: ESPN3 Money Opportunity Waste?

For the commercial breaks, apart from the Sun Belt spots and ESPN promos, I get a lot of the same commercials (including ones for local car dealers and grocery stores) that show up before Youtube and other streaming apps. I assume they are part of an ad buy with the internet provider. I travel quite...

While we are talking WDW, the folk song that HiHiYikas is based upon is among the usual set played by the band at the German dinner/show at EPCOT.

Re: FH now .500 for the season

This team continues to improve. Having watched them against the three time defending conference champions, I'd say they're on the cusp of being really good. We had freshmen playing in several key positions this year. Rachel Gaines in goal is great ... and has a GPA of nearly 4.0! The recruiting has...

Re: Boone to Moscow

Unlike some teams, App doesn't have an 18-wheeler carrying equipment because they don't need one. Several Sun Belt teams have had their 18-wheeler drive all the way to Moscow. In 2014, South Alabama had theirs drive to Moscow, Idaho, then straight to Boone for the following week's game. The box tru...

Re: App v GS rivalry needs a trophy

I think it would be cool if the trophy was awarded to the loser, and the loser has to display it until they win again. A trophy nobody wants. That would put a unique spin on a traveling trophy. It would definitely get national attention. I love it! Make a resin mold of a crushed pizza box with a pi...
