Re: We need this type of facility -will our new facility fill some of these roles?

Only approximately two programs of about 40 schools out the 20 programs at 200+ schools make a profit, should we pay all student athletes or only those that make a profit? No student athlete at App would get paid in the latter.

You may also not understand the difference between revenue and profit.

Re: We need this type of facility -will our new facility fill some of these roles?

When people say they want to pay student athletes, they need to be reminded of all the perks and benefits they receive that the average student does not. The lifestyle they live while in college will be unattainable at any point in their lives post graduation for 95+% of them. But they only build f...

Re: Ivey news

I believe Satt was Associate Head Coach and was an OC at two other FBS programs before taking the position.

I don’t think this is the same. Which is why I asked the question where this position ranks compared to OC and DC.

great guy, but his resume doesn’t equate to our next head coach.

Re: MBB: GaSou @ App State 3:30 PM HCC

A coach is truly measured by their record in close games.

4-5 in games decided by 6 or less with some real heartbreakers in there.

Re: Ivey news

Am I the only one that is confused as to what an assistant head coach is?

Is this the same position Satt had when Jerry was HC?

Is this above an OC and DC?

Re: Apps Seek 1st Road Win

I'd be fine if Fox never mentioned Davidson while App State's coach ever again. I'd like for him to go one Mountaineer Talk without doing it. I don't think he understands that most of his fond Davidson memories were painful ones for App State. When you don’t have memories of your current program th...

Re: MBB: Apps @ ULM 2:45 PM Fant-Ewing Coliseum

Great win, got to listen to second half. Great shooting - over 50% from three and very turnovers were the key.

Still need to work on FTs.

Re: FCS Championship, JMU vs. NDSU, Noon, ESPN2

NDSU would be in the top half of the MAC if they moved up, but they are on an island and that inn is full. JMU is another story, they hold out hope for a CUSA invite not realizing the difference between them and the SBC is minimal at best. JMU hasn’t felt the impact of Liberty going FBS yet either...

Re: North End Zone Project Gets Green Light

I grew up standing on Owens deck in the club room watching the team warm up and hoping the FG would sail into the deck. About twice a warmup it would I think the kicker enjoyed hitting someone with a drink. Now we tailgate with two other families, but for rain games or late November games with small...

Re: FCS Championship, JMU vs. NDSU, Noon, ESPN2

Predicted a decline in southeast FCS programs many years ago. There are SEVEN more FBS programs in a three state region compared to 10 years ago. The power at that level has shifted westward and I don’t predict it to change soon.

Re: UNCC's Judy Rose retiring in June

Both will be able to recruit and have enough student funding to make up any deficits until the fanbases are engaged. At the G5 level all it takes in a competent AD and coaching staff. I think they’ll both go through periods of 2-3 years of 6-9 wins followed by 2-3 years of 3-6 wins, rinse and repeat.

Re: UNCC's Judy Rose retiring in June

Judy looked down her nose at us, while through "Rose" colored glasses thought they deserved to be considered in the elite of their conferences. There is a reason that she didnt want us to be in the same conference and it's because deep down inside she knew we would kill the football program. In her...

Re: 2018 Football Schedule?

To clarify No FCS games = less than six home games some years if we continue to schedule one game series at P5 schools (which we will for $).

I had a feeling about Gasparato. Always interesting to see who follows who on Twitter and how recent those follows were.
Anybody outside of the App family that recently followed him and/or other coaches?

Re: 2018 Football Schedule?

I just hope to contain the home mid-week games to one.

I fully expect a minimum of two mid-week games. I think GA St. has a better chance at being mid-week than GS this year.
