Re: Where to eat New Orleans

Cafe Pontalba
Olde Nola Cookery

A friend recommended Tujague's, but I didn't make it there last year.

Re: NOLA Roll Call

I enjoyed Cafe du Monde, but I'd definitely be up for trying something new - especially if it's less crowded. This might warrant a separate thread, but I'd be interested to hear what people's favorite (or non-favorite) spots were from last year or any previous experience. We had great meals at Cafe ...

Re: Bowl opponent musings

I don't think we'll have a letdown. I think we win big, but honestly I think the biggest danger for us is overconfidence. Not just because of the opponent, but because there could be a feel-good vibe now that Clark has been hired and I could see our players sort of thinking "we rolled over our oppon...

Re: Our Next Head Mountaineer

Don't forget, just like over 2% of all FBS head coaches, he was a player on the 1995 undefeated App State team. Yea, but can he wear "The Visor"? :D It's time to retire the visor People were so desperate to find something unique about Drink. Somehow "The Visor" became some kind of signature, as if ...

Re: Our Next Head Mountaineer

Clark has coached in the ACC (Louisville) and the B1G (Purdue). He coached the OL and was Associate HC at Kent State and holds those titles currently at App as well (prior to being interim HC). He did an outstanding job as the acting OC/play caller for the New Orleans Bowl last year. He has 20 year...

Re: NOLA Roll Call

I am in - hotel and flight booked. A bit bummed though, as my normal crew backed out and my family can't come, so I'll likely be flying solo. Hope to see some familiar faces at the App bar and around town.

Re: NOLA Official Bar and Info

Can't speak to this year, but last year the App fan HQ was Bourbon St. Drinkery. It's a good, two level spot with a balcony (and plenty of other fun stuff in the surrounding area, obviously. App's band played at halftime of the game. I would guess MTSU's too, but I don't recall for sure. I don't re...

Re: New Orleans Travel options—cost

I’m not seeing any direct flights from RDU. Anyone know if there’s a chance one gets added late? I remember Allegiant added the Thursday-Sunday direct flight apparently largely for App people last year, but I can’t recall how far in advance that happened.

Re: LT Conf Future

Still don't think there is any way we move to a current conf as it stands. It would take some major realignment and getting into a newly formed conf. Agree. Really hope it happens. Seemed like there was some increasing public discussion of such an idea a year or two ago, but I haven't heard a peep ...

Re: Doug Gillin?

Wish I would have seen this before I emailed him re: the coaching search tonight. :lol:

Definitely tough timing if so. Can’t wait on a new AD to hire a coach, but then the new coach has to work for an AD who didn’t hire him.

Re: SunBelt is a JOKE

For those who are disappointed with our bowl destination, opponent, etc., I get it. Take a day or two to vent, lament the bowl system, gripe about the Sun Belt, whatever’s on your mind. Then I hope we’ll all get on board and get excited for one more game. I’m not going to do the whole “real fans hav...

Re: CFP New

I’ve been thinking about this for a time now! Why does everyone consider Memphis better than us? As I look at there schedule they beat a 4-8 ole Miss team. Ok they beat fairly good teams SMU Cincinnati twice, and Navy. We BEAT two P5 teams, both on the road- one a bowl team, 10 win La twice. We bot...

Re: Ohio St Wisconsin

It’ll be fascinating to see these top 3 teams finally settle things on the field. I have no idea what to expect. Other than I would be pretty surprised if OU pulls an upset, so that’s probably what will happen.

Curious if this holds, who are the 4 teams? LSU Clemson Oklahoma ?? It would be a real shame if the Buckeyes still got in. Obviously, Wisconsin needs to continue but.. If tOSU loses, they'll be the #4 seed. If they win, they'll be #1 or #2. You may be right, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re #...

Re: Ohio St Wisconsin

Ohio State. Then why even play the game? With that logic why play the sun belt title game? Conference title games are to declare conference champions. They are not scheduled to see who gets in the playoff Ohio St may very well comeback and win. Fine. But, I don’t think a team that loses by multiple...

Re: CFP New

For us to have any shot at jumping any winning teams ahead of us, we needed to make a statement with margin of victory. We looked like we were going to, but the final score didn’t wind up that way.

And Boise is crushing Hawaii.

Re: Congrats App State

It’s been a hell of a year. Whatever happens tomorrow, it’s been a great ride, and endlessly dissecting all the possibilities has made it more fun.

Whether the next game is in Dallas, Charlotte or New Orleans, I’ll be there and it should be awesome.
