Re: No Southern Miss Reschedule: Possible Refund

Sorry I think it’s total crap that they are not playing it. Could have been played early on Saturday or Friday. Now they are giving us very little time to figure out where to put money down on a future purchase? Yeah that’s not good. According to an article in today's Greensboro paper (which I coul...

Re: APP STATE 12 Votes Top 25 coaches poll.

I watched the Boston College/Wake game and BC did not look that impressive. They've got a good running back but that's about it. Also, BC only has wins over bad teams-Wake is probably the best win they have and it was kind of close...so too early to tell but you can make an argument right now that ...

Re: APP STATE 12 Votes Top 25 coaches poll.

If we run the table, unlikely, and look impressive doing it, again, unlikely; we will set ourselves up to be a preseason top 25 team next year. Returning 10 starters on offense. Three of our top 4 RBs. A large amount of defensive productivity as well. We are playing for recognition in 2019. If App ...

Re: APP STATE 12 Votes Top 25 coaches poll.

Alls I'm sayin' is that we stood toe-to-toe with the currently ranked #9 team, the #9 team who has totally obliterated their other 2 opponents since playing us, and who got the benefit of some very timely and sketchy calls, and we've hammered a peer G5 team while test-driving a bunch of freshmen...i...

Re: Troy v Nebraska

Even with the Sun Belt besting most fans' expectations so far this season, somehow the RPI has the Sun Belt rated below CUSA even though the Sun Belt has posted a higher winning percentage and SOS to date. 9 CUSA (14) ALL 19-20 (49%) NON-CONF 17-18 (49%) INDEX 26.25 SOS 48.32 SOS RANK 16 10 Sun Bel...

Here’s a question...which would you choose?
1) playing on the road in a Sun Belt championship game.
2) playing NC State in Raleigh
Without question...#1...always want to play for a championship.

Re: No game this weekend

Apparently with the cancellation of Marshall @ South Carolina flying back (in the storm) was a major part of the decision. Stands to reason Southern Miss flying back out would also be a problem. In the case of Georgia Southern, they're bussing to Clemson. IE they don't have to fly and that concern ...

Re: Georgia State Coach Injures Himself

I love the fact that our former players and coaches grow into higher level level coaching positions elsewhere; it showcases the fact that we've got one hell of a football program producing quality prospects that are in demand. I would even think that any recruits thinking of coaching as a career mig...

Re: Rescheduling Hypotheticals

The more I look at it, it's probably either going to come down to 1. Getting stAte to agree to move back their game from Tuesday to Saturday which would let us play Southern Miss on 10/6 since they have a bye week between Auburn and North Texas. 2. Schedule it for December, contingent that neither ...

Re: Rescheduling Hypotheticals

I'm not upset over the cancellation. It's another BYE, I guess. The only part that sucks is that our team is rolling right now. We hopefully shouldn't need this likely win for bowl eligibility. I'd hate to think the type of negative publicity we'd receive if God forbid something does happen and we ...

Re: No game this weekend

If Satterfield and the coaching staff hadn't put together such a great, exciting team this year it'd be a lot easier to take. After my initial negative reaction, I'm accepting their decision...but I'm blaming Satt and his guys for my feelings of loss!

I may be in the minority, but this storm will have minimal impact on the high country and seems like a PR motivated move.

Oh well.
PR motivated move?
We'd be playing a football game while the eastern part of the state was getting hammered by the storm...I could see that as a decision factor.

There isn't an open date for us to play.

We were not going to play in Hattiesburg due to travel costs.
Southern Miss couldn't sell enough tickets to an extra game to cover our travel? Just surprises me unless there's some re-shuffling of other games that is what admin is planning on.
