Re: Watauga High School Hires Female to Coach Boys Basketball.

Ridiculous she has to coach both teams. What a joke.

Re: Appstate Endzone Camera

I've never seen such a bizarre level of hand-wringing about something that is both temporary and entirely inconsequential in terms of the big picture of the future of this program.

Re: Men's Basketball Coaching Search

I watched Spurlock give a good UNC Charlotte team 36 and 18 one night. I thought for sure he was going to be an NBA player - dude was impossible to deal with when he was right. Apke recruited well - Spurlock, Ricky Nedd, Nod Carter, Broderick Parker, Billy Ross, Junior Braswell, Chad McClendon, Jeff...

Re: Stadium Area Pics

The track program needs a place to train/practice, which they can do on parts of the track not closed off to EZ facility construction. They obviously won't have any home meets until the new facility is constructed, at which time the remainder of the existing track will be removed. Not ideal, especia...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

If the last two hires are RB and DL, that would have to mean Roof is going to take either ILBs or OLBs. He's a linebacker coach by trade, I believe.

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

One thing I just thought about: maybe all his years with PJ have given him some special insight into dealing with the triple option. That would certainly be a good thing for the DC at App State.

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

App State is hiring the guy who was fired by Georgia Tech so Georgia Tech could hire the guy that put in App State's defense.

Makes sense.

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

ACC PROGRAM: "Hey, Ted, this style of defense just isn't getting it done in today's game anymore. So thanks and all, but you should find somewhere else to work. We want to look more like App State on that side of the ball." ONE YEAR LATER APP STATE: "Hey, Ted, come run our defense." Spin it, sell it...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

It's impossible to know how this will work out. Until he is interviewed by someone who asks him about his schematic preferences, his openness to change, etc., all we can do is guess why Drink went this route. But what we do know is this: 1. He's been fired (or politely asked to leave) four times, in...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

Roof is a dinosaur. A dinosaur who has coached at a number of P5 programs and so he knows what it looks like at that level and what kind of athletes and resources are needed to compete. In the past he also had a good reputation as a teacher. If this is a hire primarily based on that experience and b...

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

Chizik is a 4-3, Cover 2 aficionado. All he's ever run. Would be a TERRIBLE fit for App's personnel, and the G5 in general.

If he even had any interest in getting back into coaching, which he doesn't appear to have.

Re: Coach Drink Staff Thread

If the pool is $1.5 million for his staff, split among 10 coaches and an S&C guy, how about this for a potential breakdown: AHC/OL: $200k DC: $200k S&C: $150k Def Asst: $150k Off/ST Asst: $125k Def Asst: $125k Def Asst: $125k Def Asst: $125k Off Asst: $100k Off Asst: $100k Off Asst: $100k That adds ...

I see us knowing by Monday. That would be fast. I was thinking Wednesday or Thursday. Been reported by multiple places it could be done this weekend. Been over a week, not very fast IMO. Just 4-5 days is moving fast when you consider the interest and that we have a bowl game to prepare for. DG has ...
