Re: Team comparison...for fun

Good input. I probably should have been more specific? Who could one of those teams beat? Is the Idaho game that close? Or Texas St or New Mexico St? On a side note I have come up with a theory that is somewhat related. I believe that the offensive linemen on average G5’s are just slow footed fat gu...

Team comparison...for fun

We all do the “what if team A played in a different era” thing all the time. Admittedly it’s impossible and means nothing but...

How do you guys think our best team from the NC run would stack up against the SB this year alone? Everything being equal and we would only have the limited roster?

Re: Challenge for next week

The “have us circled on the calendar” cliche cracks me up. My general response to that is- so what? So a team looks at the schedule in the summer and says- “man we play App on October 21 and that’s our 7th game”! “We really need to try extra harder that game”. Dumb football speak IMHO. Lol I would l...

Re: Letting Loose in the Palouse Thread

Has anyone noticed we are in first place in the sun belt and yet to play at our best? I think that is impressive. And I don’t think I have seen an App defense play as well as they did fourth quarter Saturday. That was a total shut down Yeah just checked AGAIN and yeah still in first. Not bad. But l...

As an aside, according to the small ESPN write up we won a Big Sky conference game. Say what?

Reinforces the theory (held by me at least) that polls are useless until teams have play at least 7 games or so

Re: Old Watauga HS now App State property

For what it’s worth NCSU v UVA soccer on now. Playing at State and announcers talked about the “tight” field that happens to be enclosed by a track. Guess it can be done

Re: NCAA to UNC: "It is our business"

Not to make light of this process or the outcome but hasn’t the term “underwater basket weaving” been used for a long time to describe “easy” classes? Pretty sure it wasn’t started at UNC. Back many years ago when I was at App I was faced with having to take a science course. Lots of people suggeste...

Re: One more WS Journal-Post NMSU

Some teams are absolute beasts between the 20’s but can’t finish. Some teams look great for 50 minutes but can’t seal the deal. NMSU is a team with 18-22 year olds who practice and actually play games to win. They also have some athletes and a coaching staff that knows the game and tries really hard...

Re: USMNT v. Trinidad & Tobago 8 PM EDT Final 2018 WC Qualifier

One possible explanation for bad US soccer is that in our country kids also play: baseball, football, basketball, etc. In many of the countries mentioned they play...soccer. That's it! Kids also have virtually nothing to do in many of these countries. Soccer is by far the cheapest sport to play. Al...

Re: One more WS Journal-Post NMSU

The solution is to add a column to the standings- should have won. Old worn out phrase- gotta play for the whole 60 minutes really means something. And when guys talk about "all 3 phases" that really means something as well. We were fortunate to make plays when needed but a win is a win. I would say...
