Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

Guys 40k on a Thursday would be a homerun. Agree with this, and honestly I'm not sure it would have been much more than that on a Saturday. Maybe 45-50K. Now if they offer some giveaways, discounts etc. to get butts in the seats, then who knows. But I don't get the impression they've done that for ...

Re: MBB: Troy at App 4:00 pm; Three To Go--All "Must Wins"

Kudos to everyone for figuring out the tiebreakers, but it's too much for me to try and follow right now. If you tell me App will finish 18-13 (12-8), I'll take it all day and let the chips fall where they may in terms of seeding. (I realize this post adds basically zero to the thread, I just wanted...

Re: 2020 Depth chart

He’s not exactly under the radar, but if Nick Hampton can make the transition from pass rush specialist to every-down player, he could be a monster.

Re: CLASSLESS JERK!!!!!!!!!!

There's nothing wrong with holding a high standard for behavior and sportsmanship, but this does appear to be a bit of an over reaction. This type of taunting is status quo for sports. The truly unfortunate part is that we don't fill up the arena enough to drown them out. Hopefully we continue to g...

Re: 2020 Depth chart

So? Are we to assume Indiana’s players are better than ours? Dabo Swinney’s sons play at a P5 too, doesn’t mean they are any good. I’ll stick with Cobb and Jackson inside. Talking about showing support for all mountaineers. Damn, Ted Roof hurt you that badly? Nope just concerned about nepotism play...

Re: 2020 Depth chart

Yes, Harrington will be very much in the running with Brown. Wouldn't be surprised to see both get starts. I imagine Roof will be in the mix at ILB, as will Bird, Doublin and maybe one or two more. But if you're just projecting first string, the two guys who split the spot opposite Fehr last year a...

Re: App State night at the Canes

Gotta wonder how much this costs the athletics department with no direct ROI. Sure it's branding, but at what cost? No way this is cheap, not to mention all the travel involved for the groups they bring. Feels like a bigger moneypit than that crawdad game they play each year. Not sure that paying m...

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

App could certainly offer promotional pricing by, say, packaging this with a home game or two at a discount. I saw offers like that for the UNC-South Carolina game last year. But that would require Gillin to back off his “no mini-season plans” position.

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

Wow. Thursday night and $65 each will keep me at home. Yeah that's not great, especially for uppers. Honestly I feel like this series felt like a bigger deal when it was announced than it does now. I mean I want to see us beat ECU and play in the Panthers' stadium... but after winning in Kenan, Wil...

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

Moving to Thursday has pros and cons. I can sympathize with people who can't or won't attend on a weeknight. Personally I'm OK rolling with the punches on this one. Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, week zero... just tell me when and if I can make it, I will.

Re: ESPN Pre-Season Top 25

They may have lost a lot of close games, but they also didn't beat any one with a winning record in the regular season. Context matters. They have a lot coming back and will play in by far the weakest P5 conference, if they aren't ranked at the end of the season with their schedule it will be a dis...

Re: ESPN Pre-Season Top 25

Glad for the Apps to get the mention. A head scratcher for me is 7-6 Cheat. From nowhere to 22. I don’t know......know it’s based on projections so who knows Didn't lose a game by more than one score (every other P5 to do that finished in the top 10 or so), return a ton of talent including the stud...

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

The way I see this: 1. I will now be scheduling PTO for Thursday and Friday, which will make a GREAT 5 day holiday weekend. 2. The game will be played at night, on prime time; the only bearable time for a football game that time of year in CLT. 3. After our victory, I will drive to Boone Friday am ...

Re: ESPN Pre-Season Top 25

Funny that they think we could "share a conference title". I thought the same thing! Apparently they haven't figured out that the Belt has a CCG now. So I tripped over that too at first. I think he was trying to refer to the titles we shared in past years, but he didn't quite get the wording right.

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

I don't like Thursday night games, but starting the season that way wouldn't be terrible since it doesn't create a "short week" situation. From a selfish stand-point, having it in Charlotte makes it easy for me since I work in uptown Charlotte, so I can walk to the game from my office. :D Now that ...

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

I know it makes money sense but one more reason for me to dislike Tepper. Doesn't the City of Charlotte own BoA? I'm not a huge Tepper fan either but I don't think this was his call... although, I've been wrong before. Unless something has changed... Part of the BOA funding agreement is the city ge...

Re: App vs ECU getting bumped

Breaking in a new QB while ECU will have either a 4 year starter or a 2nd year 4 star (247 sports) going for them. Rather not play week 0 if possible. If we’re the Thursday game that’s a lot of eyeballs on Appalachian State and then we have a couple extra days for Miami. Same number of practices ei...
