Re: Jordan Fehr

I would think that is something that could be appealed by Jordan if he had an actual medical condition. If somehow our school shorted him of another year of eligibility, that is just wrong on more levels than I care to go. Sounds like someone at the school played fast and lose with a "medical redsh...

Re: #19 In Final AP Poll

Here we are having a positive discussion and someone brings up Laney. I get pissed every time I read his name... Me too. I know this sounds like a fan thing to say but honestly if I were the AD I would call him and ask him not to ever come to a game or come in our facility. He would not be welcome....

Re: #19 In Final AP Poll

Wonder what ole Roach is thinking now? Back in the 70's he told me we would NEVER be able to compete with Wake year-in and year-out. Laney said things like that back in the 90s and early 2000s as well. He thought he would never be able to compete in I-A. That is a good thought. Wonder what he is th...

Re: Way too early top 25

That's all well and good, and at the end of the day it's your opinion. But he wasn't putting a 7-5 team ahead of the 2nd place team in the MWC or the 4th place AAC team. He literally is putting a team coming off a 4-8 season ahead of a 13-1 team returning the majority of the offense and defense. Ah...

Re: Way too early top 25

Let's be honest the only reason McMurphy put Ole Miss there is because of KIFFIN. You use the word safe but I think it's more laziness and apathy to the G5. If you do your due diligence on who is coming back you'd have to like the squad Boise has, Us, and UCF. Memphis is a bit of a question breakin...

Re: Way too early top 25

McMurphy from The Stadium has one G5 in his way too early top 25, UCF at 19. But he does have VT, UNC, OK St, Ole Miss in his top 25. It's pretty standard, the media outlets push for the P5 "names" in their early rankings with no real regard to talent or recent production. This especially true for ...

Re: Way too early top 25

CBSSPORTS.com early 25 doesn't list us but puts the tarholes 25th. Beat Morgan State, 1-0. With Newman and the top WRs gone I fear Wake Forest may not be in the top 40 or so. We may be back to where we were this year. We need to hope somehow Wake Forest wins 9-10 games and Wisconsin loses no more t...

Re: #19 In Final AP Poll

Love it! Sad to see that after an 11-3 season, the Cajuns received just 2 votes from the AP. Shows the overall lack of respect for the Belt. Nothing to do but keep winning. Guess they needed to beat Mississippi State and us to get ranked. ULL did not deserve any votes. They are a solid team but to ...

Re: FCS National Championship Game

Not meaning to be elitist here but I didn’t realize how irrelevant FCS football was until I quit looking for scores in 2015. You are right it is not relevant and I realized it back when we played FCS but hated we did not have more coverage. If not for NDSU dynasty being a big story and them beating...

Re: FCS National Championship Game

The Bison should get some votes for the end of the year Top 25. 16-0 is mighty impressive. NDSU is a good team but no FCS team should ever receive votes in the AP Top 25 unless they have a win over a ranked FBS team and are undefeated. They are the best dynasty in FCS history though. I never though...

Re: Should the Sun Belt look North?

I don't get the desire to add south florida schools. I thought the mantra was to reduce the mileage between schools. The F_U's are nearly equidistant with LaLa & Monroe. Give me the Bama schools, Troy/UAB - even South Bama before the F_U's. Football isn’t the issue. We ideally need a league where w...

Re: Why Is College Football Attendance Tanking?

I 1,000% agree with this statement and don't think it gets enough attention across all of college football: Which is why we have to stop playing FCS teams. Play good G5 or P5 games and just have 5 home games in a year sometimes. There will be years where you have 6 or 7 home games and vice versa. I...

Re: Panthers Hire Baylor’s Matt Rhule

The trenches is where all Superbowls are won and lost. If you can protect your quarterback and disrupt the opponent's QB, you can win. It's that simple. Agreed. That's why guys like Trent Dilfer, Joe Flacco, etc. were able to win Super Bowls. I never thought Eli Manning was elite but he won two bec...
