Re: XFL

I watched the two Sunday games and was mildly impressed. The crowds seemed loud and into the game. I'll watch again this weekend. Media is saying crowds and viewing audience is low but those who went are passionate and were loud. There are some good rules changes and it is worth a watch from the li...

Re: Finish Strong 2 seed possible

A 2-4 seed is needed in the Obscure Sun Belt Tourney Format. Win the next 2 at home and that becomes a real possibility. Georgia State currently in 2nd has a crazy tough final 4 game stretch. This is the first time in a long time that we have a good shot at the NCAA tourney. Hopefully we can get th...

Re: An Interesting Take on 2020

Actually that’s what Bill Connolly has done for years, to make stats that are more predictive than the traditional stats. He fully acknowledges that some are better than others. Certainly Phil Steele uses returning production numbers as well. I agree with Hap and East that in our unique situation o...

Re: App St Players at All-Star Games; Congrats to 2 NFL Combine invites

NFL announced combine invites today so formally seeing it released for Evans and Gaither is great to see. It has obviously been expected for a while. I'm told Fehr got some votes but not near enough. Victor Johnson did not get any votes for the combine.

Re: NC A&T to the Big South

Agree this is a good move. I had not even thought about FBS at first because I don't keep up with them but I was not surprised by this and actually expect to see a couple more schools eventually move out of the MEAC or SWAC. A&T wants to become a better program and this makes it easier. Kennesaw Sta...

Re: Losing Another one to the Transfer Portal

This is pretty standard attrition in modern college football. If kids are past freshman year and are below second string there’s a good chance they will transfer. Headlee is kinda confusing as he is a Boone kid that we kind of took a flyer on in the first place, just thought he would be happy in a ...

Re: 2019 Senior Bowl 2:30 PM Mobile, AL TV/NFL Network

He's looking like a legit day 2 pick. It is very possible. I'm hearing 50-100 range as long as he tests like he should at the combine. Senior Bowl performance helped him big time. I have 3 scout buddies who watched his junior tape and one said 7th round, one said 3rd round, and the other said 4th r...

Re: 6 Teams who could make noise in 2020

Overall, no matter who you are, player or fan, or what team you root for, arrogance is is NOT a good quality. I think what some posters are trying to express, is not that you should or shouldn't discuss the big games like WF and Wisconsin, but the attitude that is behind these discussions. At least...

Re: 6 Teams who could make noise in 2020

Reality is a weird thing I know. Yes let’s all agree we will go 13-0 and play in the national championship and kick clemson by 40. Not only next year but every other year until the end of time. Is that better? Now we can close the door to yosefs cabin forever because there is nothing left to discus...

Re: 2019 Senior Bowl 2:30 PM Mobile, AL TV/NFL Network

Overall for the game, I’d give a b-, which I think is fine. Thought in the first half they mostly went to the other side of the field. He played well in coverage and the qb had to go to another option. Towards the end of the 4th qtr there was a play, a run from the UCLA rb at about the 10 yd line g...

Charlotte got boat raced in their bowl game... I was editing that and then saw you replied by then. Yes, Buffalo took it to them. We had 3 wins over teams who won bowl games and instead of thinking Louisiana twice when I typed that I wrote Charlotte. I was pulling for Charlotte though. The more win...
