I’d say move Watts back to WR and go get a RB/TE coach.
Take Wilcox from Georgia State. Having two App NFL guys on the same staff couldn't hurt recruiting.

How about Randy Moss? He lives in Charlotte.
Dorsey and Randy Moss as position coaches? Would be one way to make Marshall lose their mind and make App's staff the envy of G5 coaching.

Re: #KeepPounding Carolina Panthers Thread

Did some mindless research one night while talking to my brother who lives in Charlotte. We were discussing the Hornets and Panthers. I scanned some historical records for both franchises (as well as the Hurricanes). Basically all 3, historically, are .500 teams. Our NC pro franchises are historica...

Re: Spring Practice

Maybe it is less important now than when we transitioned from FCS to FBS. All I know is we’ve gotten stronger, leaner and faster than almost every team we have faced the last few years. I believe because they could see where they stood on the team earlier and had longer to change how physically pre...

Re: Why Don't We...

I call him Coach Drinkwitz as I called Coach Satterfield by his full last name, but I don't really care what others do. Seems alright to do either. He seems like to type of person who would wear his nickname as a badge of honor. Drink is a term of endearment. If things fall apart, people will begin...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

The problem with funding line items with special contributions in a situation where the program is still being supplemented is that the special contributions would generally result in other funds being re-directed and the net would be negligible on the targeted line item. That would be the case unt...

Re: Drink on Mac Attack

It seems like Drink is really making an effort to get out to a lot of the other sports’ outings as well . I know he has been to basketball games and I think he was at a wrestling match earlier this week. Good to see him supporting other sports and getting out in the community too. I live in Greenvi...

Re: Drink on Mac Attack

I live in Greenville, SC (Furman country). Furman's football and lacrosse teams have made it a priority over the last 3 seasons to be at every single men's and women's basketball games. Prior to this Furman basketball had no atmosphere. The players go, have fun, get loud, do chants and cheers, and ...

Re: Drink on Mac Attack

Agreed, like the stupid off-sides penalty when our guy took a step forward before dropping back when Wake was punting that gave them a first down which led to a touchdown if I recall correctly. I about lost my mind at that point. My wife had to calm me down since I sit up near the players’ parents ...

Come on, there are a lot of teams APP would have beaten in 2018 ahead of 45th. PSU is 9th with 4 losses?

Re: Time for Change with App State Basketball

My major concern at this point is that App is turning into a one trick pony with football being it for us. We went 18-36 in baseball last year, we're 3-5 in wrestling this year, 7-7 in women's basketball this year (which has seen improvement), 17-35 in softball last year, and are currently 5-11 in ...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

Yes, Satterfield called the plays. Drink will call the plays. Not a lot will be different in THAT respect. Sounds like Roof gonna hire the appropriate position coaches to continue what we have become good at on the defensive side. Im pumped But can he recruit? And how long will he be here? Can who ...

Nothing wrong with having a traditional spring. If it was such a great idea don't you think everyone would be doing it by now?

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

Just curious what makes you say this? Bigger names on App's staff for less money would be my guess. Bingo. Not a slight on Satt & Co. as we know how good they are/can be. But on the surface, if I am a UL fan, I’m a little jealous of the staff App put together in Satts wake for half the price tag. T...
