Re: Thank you Drink

Every single coaching contract should be for a minimum of 4 years which is the length of an athlete's basic scholarship. If a coach decides to break the contract and go to another school he should have to sit a year (just like the athlete) or he can go coach a lower level school the next year. If a ...

Re: Thank you Drink

Lots of us do the money comparison. I don't know about the rest of you but I won't ever make even the App base salary he was paid. That being said who wouldn't take 5X their current salary to go to a comparable company, under perform (in the eyes of the new employer), get fired after 1 or 2 years an...

We probably are close to losing some signed from ‘18 because their guy is gone, some commits for ‘19 because of uncertainty, ‘20 who knows. That ought to equal 2 classes.
We just played the ‘19 season. I am confused.

Re: Our Next Head Mountaineer

When the AD hires the next coach can we advocate that he not look for: Genius Guru Incredible offensive mind QB Whisperer Up and Comer (that’s the main one) How about the guy we already have who can sign the right kids, keep them out of trouble, keep them in class and have them graduate. It would be...

Re: NOLA Bowl Game Opponent

I don't believe I have seen it mentioned but UAB beat 1, count them ONE team with a winning record. They beat: Akron- 0-12 Alabama State- 5-6 (by 5) Rice- 3-9 UTST- 4-8 ODU- 1-11 UTEP- 1-11 N. Texas- 4-8 S. Alabama- 2-10 La Tech- 9-3 They didn't play Marshall or Charlotte and got destroyed in their ...

Re: Drink Interviews Update

I get the raw emotions but damn. He delivered on everything we wanted. He maintained the culture. He kept true to his word to keep the defense. He beat, not one, but two P5s. He elevated our brand to points we weren’t expecting. Yes you can say that he inherited a great situation, but he just as ea...

Re: App State players are speaking out on Twitter

Hiring any new coach has its uncertainties. Why not go with a loyal alum who has a record of success , can recruit , and is revered by his players and can start today ? It has been said, and I think valid, "Don't overthink the room". That being said, the hire that needs to be made is a no-brainer. ...

Re: SunBelt is a JOKE

Now that I had a good night’s sleep, read a few comments and started a cup of coffee I want to ask- is there really a NET advantage to moving to the AAC? I like the post above that shows the miles differences for the schools. There are some pretty hefty trips for both conferences but it seems like m...

Re: SunBelt is a JOKE

As much as I hate to think about “being passed over”, we have to grow our brand - and that includes growing our conference and it’s credibility within the college football landscape. If the Belt is to be our long term home (long term being relative), all we can do is play our hand as well as possib...

Re: Apparently App has legitimately been considered in Belk Bowl talks.

How did this turn into a uva football thread? They’ve had a pretty amazing turnaround under mendenhall. They have inferior talent, but he’s done a good job of maximizing it. I loke rooting for them because they have different academic challenges and have good kids who play for them I was simply mak...

Re: Apparently App has legitimately been considered in Belk Bowl talks.

The other ridiculous screwed up aspect of the bowl system is the inevitable number of blowouts that will occur. Virginia made it to the ACC championship by default, gave up over 60 points and is slated for the Orange Bowl? They will lose by over 20 points and still take in way more than we will. Exp...

Re: Apparently App has legitimately been considered in Belk Bowl talks.

I was just thinking. We could have gone 7-5 this season (theoretically) with 4 non-conference losses and, for argument sake the Stink loss and still won the East and the championship. That would have put us at 8-5 overall and nowhere near the top 40 or even 50. Had that happened we would still be in...

Re: SB championship Game Thread

Why in gods name did Drink not go for the jugular near the end of the first half? We had scored on 5 straight possessions and we went ultra conservative. Letting them kick that FG changed the entire complexion of the game.

Re: Drink Interviews Update

No coach is ever going to say “oh yeah if they offer me the job I’m out of here!” Reporters really just need to stop asking the question. What is Drink or any other guy supposed to say. I have never been one bit convinced that he has any desire to stay in Boone any longer than he has to. Maybe just ...
