Re: Men's Basketball 31Jan19 is Heroes Day at HCC

Happy for the win. Once thing I don't quite get is how ESPN and Vegas knew an App win was likely. I mean, Louisiana isn't UTk, Duke, or UVA, but they literally had a record twice as good as us, both conference and overall, coming into last night.

Re: 2019 Football Schedule

I'm hoping for Southern on Halloween night! Shades of the 2008 Wofford game. I'd love for the score to match as well! I hope not. That would kill attendance even more than a regular Thursday night game. Hard for people with young kids to make it up the mountain.. The 2008 Wofford game is the fourth...

Re: Alabama-Clemson Predictions

Clemson putting a whipping on Alabama. I wonder when a team last scored 44 on Bama. Auburn in the 2014 Iron Bowl, but Bama still won that one 55-44. Ole Miss scored 43 on them two years in a row--2015 and 2016--beating Bama the first time, but losing the second. The stat that surprised me, but prob...

Re: Alabama-Clemson Predictions

It's hard to say. Both teams have only looked mortal a few times this season-- Bama against UGA in the SEC championship and during the second half of the semifinal game (plus letting a terrible Arkansas team score 31), and Clemson against Syracuse, A&M, and during parts of the UofSC and BC games. My...

Hey, you got my vote. It’s a half-@$$ed article. There are better coaching carousel articles out there, and we’re in those.

Re: Disrespect

Take it as disrespect if you want, but I’ll also point out that the article came out 12/10, before Drinkwitz was named and therefore before they had anything to report. I’d imagine that’s the real reason we don’t appear. They listed Texas State for cryin out loud. Do you think Texas State is more re...

Re: Disrespect

I caught the wording too but then they have Ohio State, Miami, GT, and K State listed... None of those were firings. All retirements. So I believe DCApp is right, we should be on the list. I think all four of those are seen as “retirements”. Yea, that's what I mentioned in the 2nd line of my commen...

Re: Mo Bamba at ball games

I’m not an old man. I mean, I am compared to a current App student, but I wasn’t raised on Pat Boone at sockhops. I like plenty of music with filthy lyrics, and if you combed my Spotify history, you’d find a fair amount of hip-hop. All that said, I honestly thought this song was one big troll job. S...

Re: Article: App State Athletics Loses Money, Sends Students the Bill

I think many on this thread are getting defensive and talking past each other. The author of the article isn't saying football should go away, or that it doesn't have some benefits re: publicity. He is saying that the benefits of football don't justify the massive cost that the students are shoulder...

Re: Bowl game thread

One more quick note about last night’s game: Did anyone else get flashes of last year’s game against Toledo, where in the early part they just wanted to talk about the other team’s QB’s dominance and NFL potential, until we completely frustrated and embarrassed that vaunted QB? I love when that happ...

Re: New Head Coach - Eliah Drinkwitz

Maybe the fact that Drinkwitz wasn't on our radar (for the most part) means Gillen and others directly involved in the search process have a better radar than we do.

Re: Article: App State Athletics Loses Money, Sends Students the Bill

I THINK that when my oldest who graduated in 2016 started in 2012 the athletic fee was about $475 per semester. It is now almost $800 per semester. Per SEMESTER? Then to me, that's the crux of the discussion. Tuition and other fees have already skyrocketed since most of us were in school. We should...

Re: Article: App State Athletics Loses Money, Sends Students the Bill

Aren't most schools moving to "first year" rather than "freshman" anyway? I remember 5 or 10 years ago people making a big deal about Chapel Hill making the change from "freshman" to "first-year." I mean, it makes sense to me. It's more descriptive, and a lot of first-year students don't fit the tra...
