Re: Big News Coming Soon?

I couldn't find the facilities construction thread but in case you haven't checked it in a couple days, they've laid drainage pipes and are now grading the NEZ site

Re: Drinkwitz Interview on WFNZ

Love hearing this guy's enthusiasm every single time he speaks. Interesting, he made a very strong statement in favor of the student athletes who want to transfer.

Re: UConn leaving the AAC

Football is really the #1 thing that matters to these conferences. The academics and other sports come after. While App is not a National Research school, our overall student academics stack up to schools that are considered "bigger and better". All we have to do is continue to grow our support and...

Re: UConn leaving the AAC

Just a thought, but thinking long term here; should the Big 12 expand and take say Houston and UCF, is the AAC as attractive? Immediately, yes. Long term, still probably yes. AAC's media rights deal and overall membership profile would take a hit but still be considerably stronger than the Sun Belt...

Re: UConn leaving the AAC

If I had to bet money, ODU seems like a clear candidate despite being garbage on the field. They check all the “potential” boxes and fit nicely geographically. I also think they tell a much stronger story than GSU or Charlotte. CUSA would then likely hold, or add JMU. None of the options that have ...

Has anyone trolled the ECU message board to take their temperature on the thought? Edit: Please no. USM is in a perpetual bad money situation. UAB is decent now, but it wouldn’t take a whole lot for them to lose that momentum and become the UAB that poofed out of existence. App St is good, but we d...

Re: Orlando Sentinel 2019

Being a member of sports talk radio show I can tell you there's just not enough time nor is there enough G5 fan interest, especially when you're located in the heart of an FBS market to justify doing much research. These Raleigh guys know their audience - they're NC State, UNC, Duke, and some ECU fa...

Re: Orlando Sentinel 2019

They are clearly not paying close attention to the Sun Belt Are they not or do people just say that because they don't agree? We bring Matt Murschel on our show regularly and he's not the kind of guy to make s--- up just because. He's the national college football writer for a major newspaper not s...

Got interested to see how the Orlando Sentinel has ranked our 10 current Sun Belt members over the past 4 years. This is obviously just a measure of perception not final rankings.

Re: Best Logo in CFB contest

Which logo are they using? Black block A...so don't expect to win. All jokes aside, I just voted. Much better chance compared to the white :D When the Black Block A makes the cover of Sports Illustrated, then we'll talk :lol: Yep. I still have that SI issue.

Re: Improving a tradition

You have to know that we already have a lot of folks going “who the hell is that”. My daughter is 21. She grew up going to App games and she has no idea who James Bond or Sean Connery are.

Re: Improving a tradition

Sean Connery's character saying the "Welcome to the Rock" line is not James Bond. It's the main guy from the 1990s movie "The Rock" where they have to break into Alcatraz because of some domestic terrorists holding the city hostage. Not sure if the James Bond references were jokes or not... But the...

Re: Improving a tradition

Or we could just boost the audio level of the line and have Sean f*ing Connery bring our team onto the field!

Re: Improving a tradition

I like that James Bond delivers our intro. If you remember from the movie they hinted that he could be Bond captured by Americans. I just wish they'd enhance the line and really make it BOOM.
