Re: MBB: App State @ CCU 2 PM HTC Center, Conway, SC

Fox is completely obsessed with sending Shabazz to the NBA. Our team and knowledgeable fans are pretty worn out with it! Worn out, I fear, to the point of giving up on the season. Kind of like how Davidson suffered when they were trying to get Curry NBA-ready. Now they were in a better position and...

Re: MBB: App State @ CCU 2 PM HTC Center, Conway, SC

If a coaching change occurs I'd prefer it happen at the end of the season. I'm not a fan of mid-season coaching changes in college sports. We still have talented players who deserve to see the season out & hopefully will stick with us if a coaching change occurs (not to mention our recruits). What ...

Re: Avoid Like the Plague

One guy we probably could get would be Duggar Baucom. We might or might not win as much as we want, but at least we’d be entertaining. The Citadel missed 37 threes in a game last week. Entertaining?? Leading the nation in scoring offense, as his teams tend to do. It’s a half-serious suggestion. His...

Gillin has to make a change now. Just HAS to. It’s inevitable anyway. This season is probably lost, but you can’t have a team just obviously quitting on the coach for another month and a half.

Re: Avoid Like the Plague

I wouldn't mind Wes Miller from UNC-G...in his last 3 seasons his teams have performed quite well. 2016-17: 25-10 (14-4) 2017-18: 27-8 (15-3) 2018-19: 14-3 (3-1) Again, just like with Matt McMahon. No coach on any squad that has made the NCAA's would drop down to a rebuild project like us. Yeah, Mi...

Re: Avoid Like the Plague

Combine the financial figures with:

- lack of fan support
- lack of historical success
- inability to schedule well

... and try to think of why any coach who’s doing well at his current job would leave that for here instead of either staying where he is or holding out for a legitimate step up.

I have a hard time seeing any D1 head coach outside of maybe the MEAC leaving their job for us.

Atlanta United has too much of a following here, just like the Braves. A team wouldn't work in Charlotte. Also, change the thread title because it's misleading.

Re: 2019 Football Schedule

I would expect the rematch of the Conference championship game to be on a Thursday night. I would prefer a bye before the UNC game to help prepare. The Heels are playing Wake in a non-conference matchup the week before. Hopefully they'll be dragging a bit. What are the chances of the two Carolina m...

Re: MBB: Tx Arlington @ App State 7 PM HCC APPVISION

Anyone who's been around here the last 13 years or so that's paid any attention knows I'm not in the hot headed, knee jerk "fire the coach" camp, but I don't even know what to say. I can't defend this any more. We're not even mediocre, we're terrible. This just can't go on. We do not have to suck t...

In a related topic, my buddy and I were feeling our oats right after the game and started ranking which cities would be best among the potential NY6 games.

Re: NO Bowl vs DG Bowl vs Camellia Bowl

I didn't go to DG Bowl due to date, but here are 2 key differences between the Camilla Bowl & NO Bowl: 1. I was in Montgomery for 2 days and had to visit the Aviator Bar 3 times. 2. I was in New Orleans for 3 days and never visited the same bar twice. This is a good point. Although to be fair, I vi...

I didn't make it to Mobile so I obviously can't comment there. Montgomery was fun for a day and a half. They have about two bars, very good tailgating setup, you see App people everywhere. Easy to drive wherever you want with no traffic. Some good civil rights history sites worth checking out. Stadi...

I’m amazed that any team with 4 losses would be considered a top 25. Regardless of the final rankings this App team is among the top 25 in the country. Agree!
