Re: Off the wall idea: should we schedule Toledo in the regular season in the future?

I agree that it would be great to schedule more “local” P5’s but can or will we do it from an economical standpoint? I would assume we might still need the $1m paydays. How much is an ECU or Duke able to guarantee? Obviously we save on airfare as we can bus to several of these schools. I don't thin...

Re: Off the wall idea: should we schedule Toledo in the regular season in the future?

The "no recruiting" advantage is such a BS excuse. App hears it from fans of Wake, UNC, ECU, & NCSU as if playing at ODU and UNCC helps them see a large increase in recruits' interest level. Reading the Wolfpack board a few weeks ago when the scheduling rumor was swirling, several of their fans poi...

Wouldn’t the downside of playing them the “no footprint no recruiting” advantage come into play? Not my words but would be an argument against. Would we have to play on Wednesday night? Lol

Re: Should we ever actually consider moving games back to Varsity Gym?

Much has been written about the reasons for low attendance for basketball games. I have a hard time with the “too far to walk” excuse. Is the Holmes Center really that far of a walk for students? I realize some folks here won’t like the comparison but look at what students at UNC and NCSU have to d...

Re: Oh Ye - Of So Little Faith-Part 2 - Consolation Prize

WVappeer is the best App State fan ever! I only hope this small tip of the cap is enough. He's the only one who believed in the football team this year and if you don't believe that, just ask him. He'll gladly tell you. If this is truly a compliment, then thank you - if not, let me be the first to ...

Re: Oh Ye - Of So Little Faith-Part 2 - Consolation Prize

Someone needs to pull the records for all G5 teams for the past 3 years. I’m willing to bet we are top 10 Well that is easy the only 5 teams with a better overall record in the past 45 games are all P5s. No the question was which G5 teams have better records over the past 3 years? Good points regar...

I’m willing to bet we are top 10 Well App has been getting plenty of mileage out of the stat about best record among G5s over the last 3.5 years. Just over the last three we're now 29-9.

Re: Satterfield Interviews

This whole college coaching money thing is truly insane and makes my head spin. It’s got me thinking. In the SB there has to be (within a certain $ amount) a cap on net football revenue per school. At App for example if we sell every single ticket for every game that equates to X $ of gate revenue. ...

Who do we have that’s been injured who should or could be healed for this game? I know it doesn’t make a huge difference but what was Upshaw’s injury? Sorry can’t recall. Would have been great for him to get to play. Even just a carry. Upshaw had a torn bicep or tricep and is out for good. I'm curi...

Re: Satterfield Interviews

ESPN reporting UCF deal with Kevin Sumlin "imminent". Funny that the War on I-4 could have what many fans in Texas wanted with UT vs TA&M in Strong vs Sumlin if the former stays another year. Sumlin's a good coach. Getting fired from TA&M doesn't mean he can't do the job. Huge buyout from crazy, de...
