Re: Could App get the invite to the AAC?

The sad truth is that the AAC follows a market-size approach. Look at the schools in the AAC. Virtually all are centrally located in major cities. Considering the AAC already has a presence in NC with ECU, I'd wager the American is more keen on other markets. As others have previously said: I’d lov...

Re: Could App get the invite to the AAC?

The AAC is nice, but we don't need to be in it to reach our next major program goal: winning a New Years Six bowl. Having more seasons like this one will get us there. Boise is happy with the Mountain West because they can achieve all of their program goals from it. We can do the same from the Sun ...

Re: App ranked 101 in 2019 recruiting

I believe we are much higher in 247 like someone else said. No offense to our friends Moose and AppSt94 (because I know they aren't the ones doing it) but the rankings for G5 and below by 247, Rivals, etc are worthless. They are all focused on P5 programs. If you don't have a P5 offer at all they of...

Re: Bowl Game rankings by Entertainment

Oh there totally was. That's why Belk Bowl delayed announcing their SEC team until like 5 hours after VT. SunBelt wouldn't budge. I know some said the SBC commissioner would likely push for it because it would be good for the league and it would make sense but I never got the sense that our league ...

Re: Moving Back to FCS????

My friends asked if I knew for a fact that we would never win more than seven games during a season over the next twenty years, would I rather go back to FCS if I knew we would win multiple national titles? What are your thoughts on this hypothetical? Is that you, Roachel? Alex, I'll take "Chris Fo...

Re: THE GAME

UAB has a couple of Athletes, but they aren't much more than a mediocre team this year. Their favorable schedule is what landed them the opportunity to get crushed by our Mountaineers. We are better than them on ALL fronts. If our guys come out playing as inspired football as I think they will, thi...

Re: Drinkwitz letter in WSJ

Good luck Coach! We all know most of these fools would be ready to put a for sale sign in your yard had we gone 1-12. Let me ask this. With the talent we have would you accept 1-12? Only an inept coach would have gone 7-5 with our current roster. It would have taken an absolute moron to go 1-12. I ...

Re: Drinkwitz letter in WSJ

Look folks, I honestly don't think Drink is a bad guy, but he has a lot of "character flaws" that reared their head a few times this year (behind the scenes) and then here in his final hours. Just like he did here, he has shown some self awareness this year and done things to make amends. It is wha...

Re: Could App get the invite to the AAC?

I read some of the comments over on the Sun Belt forum that read the AAC at this point would be interested in adding a member for football only, as long as it had a strong brand... Well... App is clearly making a name for themselves in the FBS and if we keep punching our ticket year in and year out...

Re: Bowl Game rankings by Entertainment

I'm thinking ESPN was making a push for App to the Belk Bowl. We know App fans were all over the Belk Bowl Twitter account so it would be pretty obvious but based on the final regular season projection by Bonagura, these comments, the lack of pre-ordering for the Bowl Game, the SBC Championship gam...

Class move by Eli. Hopefully somebody from the Yosef Club reaches out gets him to commit to an endowed scholarship.

Re: Bowl opponent musings

We knew the rules, and we knew what the best two bowls could be that we could play in and frankly we controlled our destiny and laid an egg on Halloween. I don't mind UAB, it's a more desirable opponent than a MAC team and frankly it's kind of a feel-good story too when you look at what the Blazers...

Re: Who stays, who goes?

Hearing that Evans is deciding to stay. He wants to come back for the special season. That is great to hear. I know some folks were in his ear and supposedly had him thinking he should leave early. I wonder if Clark being HC helped at all or he had already flipped the decision?

Re: OFFICIAL: SHAWN CLARK HC

Any chance that this hire and keeping DG has any influence on Darrynton’s decision to leave early? Apparently the whole Darrynton thing is just Darrynton being Darrynton. He just talks outwardly about everything and that’s how it started circulating. Many think he doesn’t actually plan on leaving u...

Re: Who stays, who goes?

IMHO I think losing Link is a bigger than losing drink. DJ Smith is gone to Mizzou now as well. I suppose that would open a spot to retain Roof and possibly bring Dale Jones back. That would be a heck of a linebacker coaching corp. Interesting that he is still listed on the page. I think DJ will wa...

Re: Nate Woody and Dale Jones

Hope he goes with a young energetic group to lead us forward. We need a perfect season Next year is ripe for it. Wisconsin is the biggest obstacle in the way. Thankfully Clark understands the importance of the Stink rivalry. Because of who we play I'll go ahead and predict that if we go 13-0 and th...
