Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

We don’t typically go head to head with them for recruits. Looking at their last two classes and their commits for this year, there isn’t one with an offer from APP. They do go head to head with Charlotte quite a bit. The last recruit that we went straight up with them was TE Shane Calhoun. He wait...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

Wow putting the potential of a good/great/decent/bad/horrible all on one game. I mean I get it but geez. We have really set our bar high. Think of how many programs would kill for 8-4. Again, I totally get it but even if we don’t beat ECU and Miami whose to say we wouldn’t bounce back and run the t...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

The Revenge Tour begins on September 2nd in Charlotte. I hope so. A loss to An ECU that’s been bad for a while would note bode well for the season, nor our national perception. The pressure is on. I do believe they will be improved but if we are a top 30 team, like we are hoping, then we should sti...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

This why you play the game. Our D is going to be so good. This prognosticator is way off. Agree with you. I feel like we lose 2-3 games total this year but say we lose 3 I would still think we should be top 12-15 in the G5 unless those losses are to unranked teams or Louisiana and Coastal Carolina ...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

Joe Broback from Underdog Dynasty ranks his preseason G5 Top 25. https://www.sixthyearsports.com/post/2021-college-football-group-of-5-top-25-cincinnati-bearcats-liberty-flames-ucf-knights Definitely disrespect.

Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

It’s funny…I read message boards (I like to see if our fans sound as crazy as others). Some of us think we’re shoe-ins for the AAC because we have good football. Georgia State and UAB think they’re shoe-ins because “marketz”. JMU thinks they’re shoe-ins because of their facilities. AAC fans don’t w...

Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

I could get behind a playoff with AQ for the P5 and AAC (P6?) and a 7th AQ for the best of the other 4. Though my preferred playoff would be a 14 team playoff with 10 AQ with play-in games for the bottom four seeds and double byes for the top 4. For what it’s worth, in this scenario: UAB (6-3) Ball...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama is where we should continue to focus outside of our home state. Good if not great HS football in these states. All three states have only 2 P5 schools by my count. All three can be reached in less than 350 miles (6 hr.) drive. App State winning tradition, culture an...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

Your list of players are based on current day. Sure, if we had the ability to foreshadow these guys development then what your saying would work. But it just isn’t practical. You list all these states that we need to hit to get eyes on kids, but who is going to pay for that? We aren’t swimming in m...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

First off we won’t be expanding our recruiting footprint much beyond what we already recruit not just because we don’t have the money for more travel, which we don’t (and also we only have a limited number of recruiting travel days allowed each year), but more importantly we don’t have the relation...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

Imagine…………. That is a nice sentiment…. but the reality is quite different. Of course we miss on kids… so does every FBS team. It is not unusual to miss on a kid as a matter fact I would it’s more the rule than the exception. Look the pros miss during the draft regularly. They have far more resourc...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

We all want APP to get the best players that they can. And by in large, we do. The record and the company that we keep in that category supports that. Will we occasionally win a legit head to head battle with some P5s? Yes. Will it happen consistently, doubtful. It’s the nature of the beast. The ra...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

Re: 2021 Football Roster

So let me ask you this about the guys listed above. As giddy as you get to see our commits with P5 offers. Would you have been just as giddy, or concerned that we offered a kid whose only other offer was Wisconsin Whitewater or Concordia St. I’m guessing you wouldn’t have been thinking these guys w...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

The list you put together is interesting and thank you for taking the time to do that - but :>) with that being said it really doesn't point out one major factor - how good were these guys coming out of high school? You never know, heck JJ Watt had to walk-on at Wisconsin - Also, if I am rememberin...
