Re: UConn leaving the AAC

A few thoughts: 1. Yes, it'd be awesome and we'd take it if offered. It's fun to think about, but is a pipedream at this point. 2. App has a bigger sports following in Charlotte than Charlotte. 3. ECU would probably be pretty miserable if App did join. 4. Georgia Southern sucks Agreed on all accoun...

Re: UConn leaving the AAC

All this being said, DG has to at least be on the phone right? Someone on this board said he had a face-to-face with DG at an App event and he essentially said that DG told him that one of his goals was to get App into a different conference. Unless he was BSing, I would think DG has been working s...

Re: UConn leaving the AAC

Tom Sorensen, a long time writer for the Charlotte Observer, wrote in an article once, and I don’t even remember what it was about but I think it pertained to this “market” subject, that if a man walked into a bar in Charlotte and said I’ll buy a round for every ECU grad in the joint, he might brea...

Re: UConn leaving the AAC

Since we’re talking markets, isn’t there a way to spin App in both Charlotte and Raleigh markets and it still be reasonably true? Technically speaking, Boone IS in the Charlotte television market. https://tbh.lerctr.org/~ekb/TVMarkets/City%20Maps/Charlotte.gif So yeah, we can say truthfully that Ap...

Re: UConn leaving the AAC

AAC for us is the "promised land" It's as far up the food chain we're going to be able to get unless we somehow get a few billionaires backing us.

If we ever were given and accepted an AAC membership, our program's profile is elevated substantially.

Re: Improving a tradition

Or just scrap "Welcome to the Rock" entirely. There's nothing special about the line. It's always been cheesy. I don't personally think of it as any tradition at all. Growing up a racing fan, THIS was always "The Rock" to me. Kind of rubbed me the wrong way whenever KBS adopted the moniker...I mean...

Question. In this 8 page, zillion post thread has the "big news" been specifically defined? I saw several guesses.
I think it was for like, "Black Thursday" against Georgia Southern.

The App State Twitter account subverts expectations like Rian Johnston.

Re: Stepping stone vs last stop

We're always going to be a stepping stone until we start doing something of value, like constantly getting bids to the NCAA Tourney or at least the NIT. Until then, we're just the team who has that viral video of us managing to not even get a free throw to the net.

Re: App Grad with an awful idea

Maybe it's just me being from Asheville but I don't have a problem with it. Mainly because in my neck of the woods, cyclists get on the road and act like they own the place. They don't move over, they don't ride single file, if you're on a hill they become a hazard, they don't bother to give you the...

I've never seen that plaid pattern in a graphic before. Are we doing a UNC-like revamp of our uniforms, but instead of the argyle pattern we're doing plaid pinstripes?
