Re: Predict Your Breakout Player for the 2019 Season

I predict a re-breakout of Hennigan. He had an outstanding season as a true freshman, but Sutton was ZT's go to guy last year. I think the combo of more teams focusing of Sutton and Drink passing more, Hennigan is going to get a lot more touches next year. I think and hope you are correct. Great pi...

Re: Appalachian Unpopular Opinions

Yeah, and he didn’t show much that hot day at ECU Not at RB, and not at QB in a game since then. ECU was gassed and Cadet brought something they didn't expect or plan for. Not really a comment suited for this thread but that game was crazy. I sat smack dab in the middle of nothing but ECU fans on t...

Re: Appalachian Unpopular Opinions

I disagree with your car analogy as it applied to Satt. I think Satt got the keys to a Jeep. It broke down the very first year (4-8). Total lemon. 2014 looked like another disaster but he finally got the engine rebuilt. Thanks to Coach Brown he eventually turned it into a monster truck. Good added ...

Re: Appalachian Unpopular Opinions

It’s been said many times. Drink has been handed the keys to a Ferrari (or whatever sweet car you choose)- don’t wreck it. Satt was given the keys to Mercedes- strong and dependable with plenty of miles left. He didn’t really speed but was a very cautious driver. I agree, no fantastic wins and a fe...

Re: Appalachian Unpopular Opinions

We don’t need stadium expansion at all. In fact we need a more cozy feel so there needs to be a plan to remove seating. Fill the hill and cram as many people we can into the lower levels. It would be more intimidating and there really isn’t any upside to playing P5’s at home. ETSU and Wofford will ...

Re: 88 DAYS!!!!!!!!

One of my favorite plays is a 10 yard throw to a big tight end in the slot. When healthy Olsen is phenomenal. That TD he scored against the Seahawks a few years ago was epic. Hopefully Pearson is utilized a bunch this year. Yep beast

Re: Appalachian Unpopular Opinions

Going FBS was a mistake. We will never be big time because we can’t beat a P5 school. Trying to be big time leads to threads which include discussions about upcoming opponents beyond the opener. Those discussions are useless because the team and fan base must only think about the FIRST opponent and ...

Re: Troy transfers

I’m pretty sure that no coach, including Drink goes game by game with the team before the season and projects how they will do against each opponent. And no coach would tell his team to not worry about certain opponents and only focus on the “real” competition. Lord have mercy we all know that the f...

Re: Troy transfers

Perhaps someone should start a “beat ETSU” thread so that we can generate 50 pages of ridiculous comments directed initially at that game, shift over to favorite sodas and restaurants, then to political comments and finally back to that game. I think we have some very knowledgeable folks on this boa...

Re: Athlon 2019

Many people also tend to forget or maybe fail to consider the fact that the teams we face recruit, practice and even compete. Everyone of them actually wants to win and generally don’t give up. Some of our opponents actually have good players like we do. How many fan bases out there would kill to ha...

Re: Athlon 2019

This is not like with a game like UNCC where we did not play too great and still won big. What game did you watch? Other than Zac's fumble on the one we absolutely manhandled them. Zac went 14/14 for 3 TD's and our defense gave up 9 points. Could we have won by more? Absolutely. But on no planet wo...

Re: Athlon 2019

Not a bad thread and good discussion along with excellent analysis both ways. First hard to imagine 4 regular season losses and also winning the east and the SB Championship. Secondly the “new coaching staff playbook” deal is way overblown. Roster is loaded and IMO we shouldn’t realistically need to...

Re: Baseball 2019 Game Megathread

From what I read we are locked into the 8/9 game so today’s outcome really means nothing. Best not to burn any pitching today. Depending on results elsewhere we could be the home team for that game, so there is something. So, I'd love to win the final regular season game/series today. Hopefully we ...
