Re: Delicate Subject: Does anyone leave early afther this Season

It's fair to wonder about, but the answer is that no one here knows or probably even has a good idea. So we're going to get a bunch of posts of people substituting their views of what *should* happen as the reality of what *will* happen. Nobody truly knows for sure because a lot can change as well....

Re: ESPN Bowl Predictions

That's a G5 playoff, and no thank you. No, it isn’t, but maybe I wasn’t clear on that. I’m talking about two bowl games per year pairing off the G5 conference champions. Not semifinals; no third “final” game in which the winners would play each other. Just two bowls, same as we have now, except the...

Re: ESPN Bowl Predictions

That's a G5 playoff, and no thank you. Some people here still don't quite understand the bowl system. I give AJ and Big C credit for talking at length to David Jackson about this on their last BGP lounge episode...bowl tie-ins are what they are and unless ESPN gets involved and offers a boat load o...

Re: ESPN Bowl Predictions

Didn’t scroll through everything but wouldn’t it behoove the Sunbelt for App to play in a more lucrative bowl game? Sure, but if the Sun Belt could make better bowl tie-ins happen on their own, they’d do so. As Appdiesel says, the only way something like that happens would be if ESPN makes it happe...

Re: Wish other coaches would take a stand like this

Eh, if you want to take a stand, suspend him. This is just embarrassing him (of course Swinney had to tell the media about it) without running any risk of affecting the ol' bottom line.

Re: ESPN Bowl Predictions

As far as the CFP committee goes, my understanding is that they are only supposed to consider the current season's play, correct? So, if that's the case AP voters may give credence to Boise St's past performance but the committee is not supposed to. Although, I suppose it's like telling a jury to d...

Re: ESPN Bowl Predictions

No. 21 Appalachian State App State will need help making a case for the Group of 5's New Year's Six bowl bid -- for starters, Boise State and SMU probably need to lose -- but the Mountaineers let their play talk for them today. Quarterback Zac Thomas and the devastating App offense played Name Your...

Re: ESPN Bowl Predictions

We're to the point now that I'm starting to extend my scoreboard watching to P5 opponents for us and other NY6 contenders. Obviously we want both Carolinas to win as many as possible (just hold your noses, ABC fans). We might also want to root against Florida St. (only P5 opponent for Boise), UCLA (...

Re: Top 25 Watch (real thread)

I hope we absolutely body USA on Saturday. We gotta show the pollsters that we aren’t just the “best” Sunbelt team, but that we are on a different level from the conference entirely. Cincy is on a bye, I think if we win emphatically we have a small shot at leaping them. Cincy is 3 spots and 200 poi...

3rd and long with 9 minutes to play, we were just trying to convert the 1st down so we could burn more clock, but Virgil had other thoughts and busted loose Exactly, wasn’t like we were throwing bombs with 30 seconds left.

Re: Top 25 Watch (real thread)

Personally I don’t bother even checking anything other than AP, Amway and CFP. There’s so many other one-off rankings and power polls; they generate a weekly column for various websites, but the actual rankings don’t matter.
