Re: Louisville and Conley

Are you referring to the kid from Terry Sanford? Seems like he might be talking about Desmond Evans who is at Lee County and just committed to UNC. Kid is 6'6 240 lbs. I've talked to someone who has coached against his basketball team and they said he is every bit the athlete he is being projected ...

Re: Louisville and Conley

All of that stuff is a crapshoot. I think we have a defensive end commit from my area. I am familiar with his school and competition. I have no idea how he will pan out. He is probably a 2-3 star. There is another kid at my boys school who is committed to NC State. He is probably 6’5” 230ish. Plays...

Re: Louisville and Conley

My point on Conley was that he would not even start this year at App and was not better than Thomas at this point. Huesman may end up being a really good one but he has not played enough to know yet. I know he is getting players with higher points but we won't know until we see them on the field an...

Re: Louisville and Conley

He was? I saw it posted a few times. Also heard it from Arkansas State people. Obviously that was a while ago but his reputation certainly wasn't based on his ability to recruit. You need better sources than a couple of keyboard warriors and some here-say. I'm not in the Good Ol' Boy's club so my "...

Re: SB Championship game

I'd say we are all assuming APP will be there. Well, App IS in Boone, so... I'm sure you've heard the old saying, "Counting our chickens before they hatch" We don't need anymore backfield injuries, or we may be watching it on TV . Putting the cart before the horse? App has almost always had a back-...

Re: Construction

Need to round out the stands from either side, in my opinion. Looks disjointed.

Re: Louisville and Conley

Conley is clearly the future in Louisville and it is crazy because he was going to redshirt at App and be our backup in 2020. Could you imagine how good we would be with him in 2021 if we replaced Sutton, Evans, etc with equal talent? Conley is going to be a good one if he stays healthy. As crazy a...

Re: Louisville and Conley

Right, and my point is he could have been a 3 year starter for App instead of a backup for part of a season for UL then buried on the depth chart for the next 3 years. If it was my kid, I would rather him have an outstanding sophomore junior and senior season as a starter rather than a few good app...

Re: Running backs

I really like Anderson. May be a bit slight at this stage but he's got some of that scat back ability. Williams seems like best pure runner, to me. He doesn't have the same speed as Evans or Harrington but I like his style.

Re: Fun to think about....What If.....I know you have thought it

I'd absolutely take getting into the playoff, if we were invited. It would be a tough situation, however. We'd for sure be a 4 seed, meaning we're up against the perceived best team in the country. If we were to be beaten by, say, 24 points (like ND last season and so many others), then it would im...

Re: Fun to think about....What If.....I know you have thought it

If the formula changes it doesn't mean that the variables will stay the same. So, if there was an expanded playoff to 10 or more teams you might see a wider distribution of talent as opposed to now where the top 4 or 5 schools are getting the best players year-in-year-out thus creating these jugger...

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? Pretty sure it was Drink. He flew out to California to ha...

Re: Fun to think about....What If.....I know you have thought it

I have argued for an expanded playoff system in FBS for years (even wrote a piece that was published), right now without controversies each year the 4 playoff system is here until the contract expires at the end of the CFP game in 2026. While there have been some talk of expansion to an 8 team form...

Re: ULM game: Reserved tickets are SOLD OUT

It’s awesome to have the reserved tickets sold for this game. I honestly expected the UNC win to have a big impact on attendance for our home games. Would think a Top 25 ranking wouldn't hurt either. I wouldn't be surprised if Georgia Southern ends up being a sell out as well, assuming App wins Sat...

Re: Louisville and Conley

I think a lot of people thought Conley had a chance at playing this year, but saying it was the right decision for him to follow satt is a bit premature at this point. Personally I will be surprised if he plays past this year once satt gets his choice at an ACC level an recruit. He was already down...
