Re: South Carolina game parking

Does anyone have any idea what is best when it comes to parking at UofSC? The Gamecocks' website wasn't much help unless you want to pay $40+ to park close. Is there public and private lots in and around Columbia where visitors can go? They have several tailgate pavilions that are private near the ...

Re: ESPN Bowl Predictions

No. 21 Appalachian State App State will need help making a case for the Group of 5's New Year's Six bowl bid -- for starters, Boise State and SMU probably need to lose -- but the Mountaineers let their play talk for them today. Quarterback Zac Thomas and the devastating App offense played Name Your...

Re: homecoming observations

Great game. Beer in the stadium has been awesome and well handled. My only gripe is why we can’t show scores of other games. There were issues yesterday. The starting line-ups had no audio, no scores showed from other games, the tailgate/hashtag pictures did not appear until late. Also, if we canno...

Re: Special Teams

While I enjoy seeing our special teams make big hits and stopping their returners anywhere short of the 25, I tense up just a bit when there is a return. Those collisions after a 40 yard full sprint are often violent, causing injuries. That's the biggest benefit of touchbacks. That and if their ret...

Re: XFL Draft

Great seeing Duck at the game today, just wished he were still in the Black & Gold. I bet nobody wishes that more right now than him. As said before, the new corners can be as good. I already think Jolly is going to be Duck's level come next year. That pick was insane. Duck would definitely help th...

Re: Top 25 Watch (real thread)

Boise ahead of us with 1 loss is a joke. Their signature win is against a horrible FSU team. Take into consideration APPs signature win? Every team that we have played except Louisiana which beat a bad Mississippi State team that has a losing record. I'm all for high as we can be and think we are f...

Schools that draw upper tier in their home attendance aren't going to be in the least bit attracted to home-home with APP. It's like putting 10lbs of fans in a 5lb stadium.
I know it’s P5, but Alabama played at Wallace Wade pre-renovation.

Re: Running backs

Personally I think Evans should continue to return kickoffs for two reasons: 1) his ability in the return game may be unmatched in the country and he has a knack for breaking something in high pressure situations. 2) With the new rules on kickoffs you really only see each team return one or two a g...

Re: Sold Out

Fun Fact: There has never been a ranked Sun Belt team to have won a game. If we can pull off a W this weekend, we will once again have made conference history. That's a "fun fact" that's been flashing across the bottom of the screen on the ESPN ticker for two days. The good news is that being RANKE...

Re: Louisville and Conley

Quite honestly, I had heard he was a good recruiter. At NC State some complained that he only recruited QBs but that was his priority there. Who is responsible recruiting our QB Baldwin. Isn't he the highest rated player APP has ever signed? I think Dorsey started it out and then once he decided to...

Re: ASU, Boone, conservancy discuss Boone Creek daylighting proposal

trying to kill another prime tailgating spot by removing a lot and putting up a deck. There will be nowhere in sunshine to tailgate in 5 years. As much as I disliked getting moved from Library Deck this year, we’re really enjoying Legends. Instead of parking in the main lot+ we head to the upper lo...
