Re: UCF big win for g5

To me, an expansion to an 8 team playoff with all P5 Conference Champs, 2 at large, and the best G5 is intriguing. The CFP gets some media fodder with a "David vs Goliath" matchup or two and the G5 gets a chance to prove themselves. UCF was definitely one of the Top 4 or 5 teams, but UGA looks real ...

I would love to play either NDST or JMU anywhere. I have a friend who constantly reminds me where NDST is in the satin ratings.
Remind him he plays a FCS schedule....
Man, I am so glad we are out of the FCS, seems so irrelevant now. The FCS of old is loonnnngggg gone.

Re: Ron Prince...

Suck for the Panthers, we at least had a great replacement waiting behind McDermott with Wilkes, now the cupboard is getting bare. I would love for McDermott to call Shula up to the Buffalo Panthers.....

Re: My G5 Top 10

My thoughts are similar. But I have also weighed the thought that a G5 “David vs Goliath” would be just as tasty for CFP to advertise, especially for TV. However they do it, I do not want the G5 to go to their “own system” as has been suggested, but an 8 Team playoff with the P5 Conference Champs, 2...

Re: My G5 Top 10

Pretty solid list. Hard to get a read on those MWC teams... would have been great to see how App State fared if we had not had the injuries/mid season lull. Easthall, you usually track the G5, what are your thoughts on how they can get G5 in the mix for Playoff games? Heard UCFs AD on LeBatard this ...

Re: Lamb

I think he goes down as the second best qb to wear the black and gold. Honestly, what he has accomplished during a transition is unprecedented and frankly should get more media attention. Yes, he had some limits in his skill set but not in his leadership and determination. Taylor Lamb has been grea...

Re: Lamb

appstatealum, as was mentioned, Taylor was not a FCS recruit. He was on his was to the Sun Belt USA Jags, until he changed his mind and decided on App. I can't think of a game we lost because of TL, but I sure do think he was critical to us winning some we otherwise might not have.

Re: Lamb

He was not an FCS recruit. He would not have come to App if we were not transitioning to FBS. Also, as far as P5 competion, that is a bit unfair as well. He has not played a middle tier P5 program...they have all been very good programs. He may have looked limited at times but understand this, his ...

Re: Will Lamb Go Pro?

Taylor has some great intangibles, but the tangibles you need to make an NFL roster just are not there. Brees has a small frame, but an absolute cannon and pocket presence rarely seen....same with Russ Wilson. Wilson has an unreal arm to match superb athleticism. Lamb's strengths are not the kind th...

Lamb

So, I am a '05-'06 Alum and have only missed a handful of games since 2002. Back in 2015, I came on here and stated that Lamb was a good FCS QB, but would limit our success as we move forward in the FBS. Of course, my critique opened the floodgates of backlash, but it was never a personal shot at La...

Re: Season Ticket Sales 2007 vs 2017 - This is disappointing

We have have great support. If you have 25k in the stands what difference does it make as long as they bought a ticket. I guess he's assuming Yosef comes along with season tickets? I agree that season ticket sales do not directly equal disappointment. In addition to ESPN availability, you have a co...

Re: Rush Limbaugh slams App State

Appalachian is a household name due to our ability to be successful despite being a small program. While Rush was not complimenting us, the fact that we were mentioned on a show like his is a testament to where our brand stands amongst the P5 powerhouses. If he had used North Dakota State to make a ...

Re: Panthers to the Super Bowl!!!!

What is more enjoyable than watching a team full of guys realizing that they play a game for a living to entertain fans and they have fun doing it? Reminds me of this App team that dances and has fun. That is the way it should be.

Re: Love for Lamb

Good reference to his confidence earlier, i would love to see him improve in this area and settle down in the pocket when things are not going his way. If he improves on that this year, we are looking at another outstanding season.

Re: Oline and QB are real problems

Lamb is the definition of a game manager. He is not going to dictate games with his play, but he can win when our system is working. Kudos to him for overcoming the beating his O line was causing him to get. I caused a big stir on here earlier this season when I questioned him and while my view has ...
