Re: New roster heights and weights

Hannon was listed as 6'2 260 last year and I'm pretty sure he didn't allow a sack all year. Davis-Gaither will be taking over Stringer's role, and he was listed at 208 last year and nobody seemed to have a problem with his size/performance.

Re: Grading Football Recruiting from past years

It’s almost impossible to grade in hindsight because how do you account for coaching changes, injuries, poor player development, and even good old fashioned bad luck? You’ll never convince me that Jimbo Fisher isn’t one of the five or ten best coaches in college football, a great recruiter, and grea...

I'd be surprised if Woody didn't offer Brown and Ivey spots on his staff at Georgia Tech.

Re: 3 new bowl games? Myrte Beach may be one.

The money is a myth argument at a certain point. This "everybody gets a ribbon".. sort of deal, just ruins what should be a reward for teams with a strong winning record. I'm sorry, I'm just old school on this. I used to feel this way, then I realized two things. First, a 6-6 Big Ten team would get...

Re: Fox extended to 2021

Expecting 20 wins from our basketball program is laughable. In 46 seasons in the SoCon and Sun Belt we reached 20 wins exactly 8 times. Buzz did it four times, Cremins did it twice, and once each for Fancher and Apke. Until we actually decide to invest in and support the program as a fan base, we sh...

Re: At UTA

If we were not allowed to be critical or speak up, our football schedule would still contain teams like west carolina, Mercer, Samford, etc. and we would be playing with home crowds of around 15K. I have to echo Moose here. Who in the world is saying people can’t be critical? This is a message boar...

Re: Shabazz Declares for NBA Draft-No Agent Hired

Usually means testing the waters. Going to see what they need to work on for their senior year. If you're not going in the first round your contract isn't guaranteed. So unless he wants to go play in the G league he'll go get some notes and come back to Boone. This. It's a smart move for any rising...

Re: 18-19 Hopes/Expectations

The amount of negativity in this thread is baffling. It's not like Jim Fox took a dumpster fire program at a school with no notable basketball tradition and just finished .500 in conference, won a game in the conference tournament, and had the best non-conference win in the entirety of the Sun Belt....

Re: 18-19 Hopes/Expectations

How can you give a guy with a 45-78 record an extension? The strong end of the season finish pushed back some termination talks on here, but you can't give an extension to someone that has nothing to show. Not giving him an extension is cutting off your nose to spite your face. We have already hear...

Re: Series vs Georgia Southern Moved To The Stink

Agreed, however, I see no improvement, only regression. We were more competitive early on than we are now, no doubt. Once again, it is what is is. I realize our team is young, but, I see no progression at all. If you do, please enlighten me. We are aware of your opinion, there is no need to hijack ...

Re: SI Loves Them Some App State

Obviously our win at Michigan was and probably still is the biggest upset in college football history. Who would be second? In my mind in order for a game to come under this consideration the big opponent would have to finish the year either highly ranked or still win a bowl game. If memory serves ...

It’s become very fun to follow App basketball on the board here. Every game day is guaranteed to produce a positive result. Either App wins the game, or they lose and you get to watch the meltdown that’s guaranteed to follow. It’s win-win.

Tough break for this young man, as he made great strides last year. Hopefully he will have a quick and successful recovery and see playing time this year! This does show the value of early spring practice as it adds recovery time in a case such as this. The ACL is the bad news. The good news is it ...
