Re: Karl Benson on G5 playoff

G5s routinely schedule home-and-home series with P5 teams. Was there ever a time when FCS teams did that?

Re: Karl Benson on G5 playoff

Nope, not interested; that slope's way too slippery. They should be pushing to expand the FBS playoffs to eight teams with one spot guaranteed to the best group of 5 team. It would take one good ass whooping from the P5 opponent before they realize it's a terrible idea. UCF would likely have the 7 ...

Re: Karl Benson on G5 playoff

If the G5 playoff that nets the same amount of revenue as the bowl system, all realistic fans should be on board. In the VERY unlikely event that a G5 team would be chosen in the CFB Playoff, then they move to that and they are replaced. We are a great football program with a whole lot to be proud ...

Re: UNCC fires Price, Fancher interim coach

It's not our primary sport. Fans are apathetic to basketball at App. I really hate both those statements because if we did have a successful program we would have fan support and then nobody could say "It's not our primary sport". We could have both Football and Basketball as serious sports. I agre...

Re: Throwback Week: When Buzz Ball ruled the Southern Conference

Fortunate that my four years at App coincided with Buzz's first four. As much as we're known as a football school, basketball was my first love as a student. Still one of my favorite in-person sporting events was attending the SoCon Tournament in Greenville the year we won it.

Re: Ayers retiring at Wofford

I remember before that '08 game there was this one random Wofford fan who would come by the App Rivals board nonstop to talk trash about how we wouldn't be able to stop their offense, they were going to run over us, etc. Oddly enough he didn't return after the game. :lol:

Re: UNCC fires Price, Fancher interim coach

Timing is so bizarre that my immediate thought was that there must be some kind of off-court issue, but none of the quotes from Rose or the chancellor indicate anything like that.

Re: Ayers retiring at Wofford

If Satt goes in the next few years, wouldn't he likely take some of his staff? Why would Woody go back down to FCS, when he has the potential to get upgraded with Satt? I would much rather be a DC in the AAC then a HC at Wofford. Or he could potentially replace Satt, though this move wouldn't neces...

Makes sense but how much could they pay him? Wondering if that would really be Woody's best move right now.

Re: Dollar General comments: ASU vs Toledo

When are these thick skulled Toledo people gonna understand that App State was not the number 2 team in the Sunbelt. Keeps coming up again and again. I hope we blast em off the planet on the 23rd. Sad thing is that it still won't shut their whining up. Not a Rocket fan.......I think they're getting...

Re: Dollar General comments: ASU vs Toledo

Maybe they don’t like that the bowl that has first pick isn’t appealing to their fan base and that they had no say in the process?

Re: Off the wall idea: should we schedule Toledo in the regular season in the future?

I agree that it would be great to schedule more “local” P5’s but can or will we do it from an economical standpoint? I would assume we might still need the $1m paydays. How much is an ECU or Duke able to guarantee? Obviously we save on airfare as we can bus to several of these schools. I don't thin...

Re: Off the wall idea: should we schedule Toledo in the regular season in the future?

Considering the current conference we are in I am personally hoping for more regional OOC games. I would love to see us play either Wake, Duke, State, UNC or South Carolina as our P5 game every year. Getting ECU on the schedule is great and I hope that continues. Also, the game vs Charlotte could b...

Begs the question. Are we better than last year?

For most of the season, we were clearly worse than the last two years. In the last couple games, I think we’ve gotten back to that level. So it depends on which team you think is more likely to show up in Mobile.

Re: Insights from the enemy.

Interesting to hear you say they were better last year. I've been wondering whether this year's team is actually better, or just about the same but didn't have to deal with a top 15 WMU team.

Funny how many teams keep "underestimating" little ol' App State.

Re: Dollar General it is

As an App State fan, that article is bulletin board material. But if I take off my Black and Gold glasses, a lot of his complaints are similar to ones many of us have voiced about the Sun Belt's bowl process: - No real priority for the conference champion. - No opportunities to face P5s. - No obviou...
