Re: What is Bar for 2020 Football Season?

My dad went to Duke and I grew up following and pulling for Duke basketball. Over time they got to a level where their goal is winning the national championship game. The reality is that you are NOT going to win it every year for many reasons. Some years you don't have the horses due to reloading, s...

Re: What is Bar for 2020 Football Season?

Should getting to and winning SBC Championship game be a reasonable expectation for our team? YES Should getting to NY6 and winning it be a stated goal? I say YES I would say Clemson, Alabama, LSU, Georgia, etc and a few more will certainly state their goal as winning the National Championship game....

Re: What is Bar for 2020 Football Season?

You mean Where is the Bar for 2020? English never was my strong suit. I am just a redneck country boy that did okay for himself despite my rais'n. I was a Physics guy. Facts are all that matter to me. I was trying to be clever as “Bar” as in Pub.... Hey I was a little slow on that one. Good line!

Re: Spring Practice

GaSo played 2-3 games in serious rain before Halloween game. I heard a lot of folks say weather hurt us that night. My wife said we looked soft vs them that night. It was only loss of season. I am not saying that was only factor but take it for what it is worth. Let me add a clarifying comment to m...

What is Bar for 2020 Football Season?

Since this is off-season and we need stuff to talk about I was thinking about what would be the bar for the 2020 Football season. We have a lot of returning offensive players, especially skill players. The Defense will have some challenges reloading in several places. We have a new coaching staff, a...

Re: ESPN Pre-Season Top 25

It's a beauty contest, but it's good press. It means nothing as far as position to accomplish what we want this year but definitely looks good for recruiting and press. I don't care if we begin the season ranked typically and I don't expect to but it will look good for recruiting and marketing if w...

Re: NEZ work today

Winter of 1992 they sent us to class with the wind chill of somewhere around -50. I think the NC legislature passed some sort of weather related law about soon after. I remember that winter well. Plus we had a 2 WEEK Spring Break due to the nor'easter snow storm!!! When I was there they didn’t canc...

Re: Preseason SP+ Rankings

5th G5 team We all know these polls mean nothing but its nice to see we are where we are. The bias for UNC at 17 is ridiculously nauseating I'm not a UNC fan in any way, shape, or form but they didn't lose a game in 2019 by more than one score and lost two OT games. Flip two of those games and they...

5th G5 team We all know these polls mean nothing but its nice to see we are where we are. The bias for UNC at 17 is ridiculously nauseating I don't know if it's bias. SP+ is a predictive measure. UNC played better and better as the season went on, and I think they got a pretty good recruiting class...

Re: Shawn Clark | Appalachian State | Grade: C+

To add an extra layer of "take this list with a grain of salt," the 247 list you linked actually pulled all of their grades and commentary from Dennis Dodd's CBS Sports article from a couple weeks ago. That's not the only article of the sort CBS Sports has posted. A couple weeks before, Tom Fornell...

Re: Back To Early Spring Ball!

I think this got into the rabbit hole as HPApp eluded to because someone questioned spring practice and related it to various game preparation/results, i.e. GS game. That is fair to ask on this thread if it is about the merits of early spring/late spring practice discussion. I don't think anyone can...

Re: An Interesting Take on 2020

The idea and some value for returning productivity is interesting. However is 70% returning from a13-1 team better or worse than 90% from a 5-7 team? And what is the relative new value of the players that will fill in the lost production? Are you replacing it with less, equal or better talent? Look ...

Re: Who stays, who goes?

I had said this earlier and the trend seems to support it. Shawn saw what happened to Eli with some staffing moves that didn't pan out (they left before or as soon as they arrived) and left him with some egg on his face. Shawn seems to want to dot the i's and cross the t's before he announces anythi...
