Re: Football team involved in St. Patrick’s Day fight?

Peoples is an absolute class act from my very limited interaction with him. This video backs up my assumptions about him as a person. He tried to calm everyone down and prevent them from getting into trouble. That’s true friendship and what a good teammate does. He should be commended. Also shows l...

Re: Fall Schedule

Love the schedule. I was worried that there'd be 3 home games in a row to start the season and then the UNC game. Four football weekends in a row would present a family challenge (not insurmountable, but a challenge) but this works out great. The only small negative I see is that we have the short w...

Where will the intramural football teams practice?
I would think there'd be space at the old Watauga High School property for this type of thing. I've heard the phrase "mixed use" with locker room facilities, etc. It's a nice addition to the campus.

Re: 2019 would you rather

This team certainly has the ability and talent to go undefeated this year but it won't be surprising if we drop a couple of games, or even 3, more than 3 losses would be a disappointment to me. We're playing 2 P5s (both of whom will most likely improve this year) plus we know the Sun Belt will have ...

Re: 2019 would you rather

If we were playing almost any other mid-tier P5s instead of the two Carolinas I'd say lose those two and sweep the Sun Belt...but since it's UNC & USC; I'd begrudgingly sacrifice two conference games to beat those two particular P5s. Implications are huge for recruiting, bragging rights, top 25 cons...

Re: Early 2019 S&P+ Rankings

I know what the reaction to this is going to be: but we really HAVE to do more than be competitive against our ACC and SEC opponents next year. Agree. For years we have rationalized losing to the P5 teams by saying that we got them on their way up. We know how close we came with PSU, UT and Wake. A...

Re: Early 2019 S&P+ Rankings

I'm pretty sure we're not getting a "down" UNC team. We're getting a team that was down in 2018. The Tar Heels went 2-9 with two overtime losses and four losses decided by a touchdown or less. In my book, that team was snakebit. That's partly due to Larry Fedora's struggles as a head coach and part...

Re: Zac Thomas voted best QB in SBC for 2019

I want Baldwin to develop into a Stud QB too. Hopefully he will and time will tell. Both Huesman and Derrick have good skills. Both had an opportunity in a big time game with big time pressure to show what they could do with live fire and it didn’t fare so well. Maybe they can improve in the future...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

Losing these 3 coaches so quickly is definitely frustrating but in the long run won't matter one bit...we'll even forget they were here. Based on what we've seen so far we'll probably get a better crew anyway. We were upset when Stephon Brown was released and then we were doubly upset when Satt took...
