Re: Big $$ Announcement Coming

What is the $10m going to be earmarked for? When will it get spent? Anxious to see and hear big things! I believe the biggest chunk will go toward a down payment on the North Endzone project. But that still has to work its way through channels. Only asking this because of the ongoing north end zone...

Re: How Good Was The 2017 Team? [Black & Gold Podcast]

If I counted right 36 teams won at least 9 games. It ain’t easy to do what we have done over the last 3 years

Re: MBB: GaSou @ App State 3:30 PM HCC

In the past we have won conference tournaments and regular season championships. We won the Puerto Rico tournament against a strong field. We have made the NCAA tournament, the NIT, and the CBI. We have beaten teams from several major conferences and this was all done under several different coache...

Re: MBB: GaSou @ App State 3:30 PM HCC

Someone needs to dig up the preseason predictions for this team. Looking at the remaining conference games. Of course nothing is a given but based on records there are a lot of what should be wins remaining- two each with Ark St, Little Rock and Coastal who are the cellar dwellers. Troy and South Al...

Re: Final AP

Someone already said it. Had to beat Wake, UMass and La. In my mind at least the first two. At the end of the day (and the season) who cares really once you get down lower in the rankings. How does anyone really know the difference in the number 22 team and the number 38 team. I like the fact that o...

Re: Benson other G5 Commissioners Oppose Expansion

Heard one of the ESPN radio shows last Saturday and the guy made a great point- BCS college football is THE only major sport where, before the season starts,virtually half of the teams have zero chance to play for the championship. Forgive me because it's going to sound like I'm being pedantic but ...

Re: Benson other G5 Commissioners Oppose Expansion

Heard one of the ESPN radio shows last Saturday and the guy made a great point- BCS college football is THE only major sport where, before the season starts,virtually half of the teams have zero chance to play for the championship, i.e. the G5’s. He was spot on. Basically a team like App would have ...

Re: UCF big win for g5

Unless the committee is forced to put a G5 in any playoff there is almost no way in hell it happens. Even if, say an App beats a Penn State and two other strong P5’s in one season they still typically play in a crappy conference which will always weigh heavily. Two years in a row now a strong G5 has...

Re: Assistant pay $10mm

Didn’t read the article but the guys getting that kind of money are typically called “defensive geniuses” or even “defensive gurus”. I truly do love watching college and pro football but these tags some guys get are completely ridiculous. Hard to say what any coach should be paid but overall it’s wa...

Re: UCF big win for g5

UCF and Western Michigan both went undefeated and both finished 12th in final BCS voting. Even if there is expansion to 8 teams G5 most likely excluded unless the committee is made to include them. I had no idea that UCF was the largest school in the country until recently. How they went 0-12 is baf...

Re: UCF big win for g5

Radical idea that will never happen. Dissolve all current fbs conferences. Make new conferences out of all fbs teams by geography, with no consideration as to who they are. That would level the playing field for all schools in fbs. Would at least slow the jumping of coaches and their staffs to othe...

Please someone who is a QB expert tell us football morons which games App lost with TL at QB that we should or could have won had he played better- or if he wasn’t limited. I am going to eliminate two right off the bat- Clemson and UGA.

Wake now with more points two minutes into the 2Q than they scored the entire game against us. That loss hasn't stopped stinging yet. Not for me either. It does still sting. We beat them everywhere but the scoreboard. It was so disappointing to lose that one. We gave that game to Wake. My stomach s...

Could this game have been thrown? The most obvious conclusions from your post is that you are either trolling or did not watch the game. Perhaps alcohol... No he’s probably right.
