Re: UConn Problems

Sad thing is, logically a big program moving down should help FCS but nobody ever moves down when their program is in good shape. Even though few would ever do it, I wonder how many schools have floated the idea internally.

Re: Good Recognition

No team ever got a trophy for recruiting rankings. Tell that to Alabama and App while in FCS. Tell that to NDSU and JMU in FCS. There is a positive correlation between recruiting rankings and performance rankings. App just doesn't conform to it. Obviously rankings are subjective and there isn't a v...

Re: Good Recognition

Ranking classes outside of the top 30 players per position is asinine. App has not overachieved with the 119th ranked recruiting class over for years...rather we have had a top 50 recruiting class over for years and these agency don't know how to evaluate talent. UNC was allegedly 27th in this rank...

Re: Drink on Mac Attack

Anybody else fear that Dorsey will have the shortest tenure of this talent pool of coaches? Genuinely asking, will recruits recognize he is "destined for bigger things than App" and that fact not help us in recruiting as much as having him should?

I’m too lazy to do research. Did the loss by Arky cost us $$$?
If you consider every loss effectively knocks our average ranking down, then yes.

Re: Sun Belt Conference to receive $17.2 million from CFP, the third-highest amount for G5 conferences

By the #'s.... G5 is getting $86m. $70m is distributed evenly, the other $16m is divided based on performance. #1 MWC - $20.4m ($1.7m per school) #2 AAC - $18.8m ($1.56 per) #3 SBC - $17.2m ($1.72m per) #4 CUSA - $15.6m ($1.11m per) #5 MAC - $14m ($1.17m per) Avg ranking (based on old BCS computers)...

It seems like Drink is really making an effort to get out to a lot of the other sports’ outings as well .

I'd really love to know their criteria. Is it opinion based? Advanced analytics? Human voting? The article doesn't really say.

Re: Top 25 Preseason Ranking for 2019?

Haven't commented on this yet, but we have a better chance of getting ranked at the end of this season than preseason next year. Preseason rankings favor the optimism of a new year, teams with coaching stability, and player retention. We only have 2 of those 3. We made our way onto more radars this ...

Re: What the G5 should work towards. Guaranteed way to increase strength of schedule.

I do not want to see 16. It's true the first two left out in any size playoff will complain but would a 3 loss #17 or 18 have a real shot to beat a #1 or 2 team? Probably not.

I say 8. 5 P5 CCG winners (emphasize winning your own conference), 2 P5 wild cards, and 1 guaranteed G5 rep.
