Re: Who stays, who goes?

Are these other P5 schools just way overboard with coaching salaries, particularly the ones who are basically .500 schools most every year or is App just really low with what we pay? Where do we rank with a coaching ROI? It would seem the answer to both is, yes. Exactly. App’s salary is one of the ...

Re: Who stays, who goes

Last year I felt: Iffy on HC, like the retention of assistants. This year: Love HC, iffy on assistants. Last year, many were worried about maintaining and preserving the culture. This year many are saying, we have too many who are imbedded in the culture, we need fresh ideas from the outside And ye...

Re: Football Staff

We won't get a resume like Roof in all likelihood. He had the best resume of anyone on the staff last year (including Drink) but he was the LEAST popular hire on the staff. “Best resume” is subjective. Do you value quantity of experience or quality of results? What they’ve done in the past vs. what...

Re: Jordan Fehr

Yeah, kind of tough to say he should have gotten a medical redshirt when he just said it was a coaches’ decision for the purpose of preserving his eligibility.

Re: Football Staff

MackAttack - I was thinking of the three you mentioned with that “lateral move” comment (Clark, Watts, Holt). More about how he replaced departures than his initial staff. Good summary of the bigger picture, though.

Re: Football Staff

OK, this may not go over well, but here goes: We are not a "top 20 program," especially when it comes to coaching hires. We had a top 20 team this year. That's not the same thing. We're not going to be poaching a bunch of rising-star assistants from successful FBS programs. We just don't have the mo...

Re: Football Staff

So at this point with a couple more hires added to the coaching staff and the loss of Riley and Gas, what is the temperature of the room here on the boards? Have we stepped forward or stepped back? I would be lying if I said I am super enthused. I know we're not going for those huge splash hires bu...

Re: Football Staff

So as of right now who are the coaches on the staff and what do they coach (other than head coach Clark)? Asking for a friend.

Re: #19 In Final AP Poll

I'm not upset about Memphis. In my opinion, if they had been blown out we should have jumped them. I don't think the G5 representative should be penalized for losing in a competitive game to a top ranked P5 team. I think App could have competed with Memphis and possibly won if we had played, but th...

Re: Missouri State to the Sun Belt?

Petrino is using Missouri State to get back to a Power 5 job. The sad thing is, I can see a lower tier P5 taking a chance on him if he does well enough. Petrino is a scumbag that shouldn't be coaching. As for Missouri State, they weren't even a finalist when the decision to call up CCU was made. Th...

Is it the assistants we actually have that you're concerned about, or just Jones as DC + the uncertainty?

Re: Missouri State to the Sun Belt?

I think it's under the radar because you're the first person to link it with a potential Sun Belt move, and there's no obvious reason why the Sun Belt would want to add them.

Re: Football Staff

I thought y’all were talking Elder as QB coach only. I looked him up a few weeks back just to see where he was, but I don’t think he has the resume/experience to be a QB coach for us yet, never mind OC.

Well hey it's the second straight year this board has been less than thrilled about our DC hire!
The last one provided ample ammo for everyone to stick to their preconceived opinions, and I expect this one will do the same.

Re: Who stays, who goes?

Like the Kuechly thoughts, but pretty sure he lands on the Panthers staff. Gonna miss watching him play. I say hire him as Co-defensive coordinator and play caller right now, if he wanted it. He can do whatever he wants to do now, I'm sure. Doubt he's spent much of the money he's made. Doesn't meed...

Re: #19 In Final AP Poll

For context, a list of every team in North Carolina in the last 15 years to finish the season ranked by the AP:

2015 UNC - 15
2006 Wake Forest - 18
2019 App State - 19
2013 Duke - 23
2017 NC State - 23
2010 NC State - 25

If you're wondering, ECU last finished the season ranked in 1991.

Re: #19 In Final AP Poll

19 is exactly where I was guessing. I was hoping we would jump over Memphis but I really didn't expect to. VERY PROUD to be a MOUNTAINEER! I'm disappointed for UL but the problem is that they played 3 games against opponents where they could make a statement and they lost all three, even though the...

Moved up one spot to 19 in the final AP poll. Memphis remains the highest ranked G5.

Two points behind #18 Michigan.
