Re: Georgia State Tidbit

This new guy jumps to conclusions very fast, annoying. Not a new guy. FWIW, I wasn't directing my comment directly to you. Instead just referring to the overall tenor of some people on this board who have voiced the opinion that one of the major reasons Cobb was so successful in the beginning was h...

Re: ETSU Football

I like ETSU as a future sunbelt member. Close past rival with a good bball program to boot. What makes them a prospect for the Belt? Has their administration expressed interest in them becoming a part of the SunBelt in the future? Just curious. Large state school, good bball program, decent academi...

Re: SoCon Cup Points 18 May 2014

18, the SBC sponsors all of our sports except field hockey and wrestling as they will add men's soccer next year. Their all sports trophy combines both men's and women's. We are the only program to sponsor all of them, many sponsor 16 or 17. Is any other SB school fielding programs outside the conf...

BTW, I was talking about the college experience balanced with outside interests and endeavors. FWIW, I admire those who are able to balance a college experience with family life and community involvement.

Re: Georgia State Tidbit

It makes a huge difference when you're talking about the college experience. Thousands of grads have loved their college days without the type of college experience that so many on this and other boards like to characterize. Personally, I and many others had a great time at ASTC and later ASU witho...

Re: Armanti in Saints camp

Is the Saints football administration still offering bounties on how many opponents' players are put out of action due to injuries? There was a discussion of that on this board sometime ago.

Re: Georgia State Tidbit

They should add another statistic, living on campus, living off campus, and living with your parents. The difference in App and the other two would be much greater. What difference does it make if a student is living withy their parents or not? For many that is a cost savings that may have allowed ...

Re: Georgia State Tidbit

Overall GSU has 83% living off campus while App is at 63% and UNCC is at 75%. Of course, as 17% from a hundred is 83%. Yet UNC-C doesn't call itself a commuter school, although many on this message board are locked into referring to it quite stereotypically. That was my point as simply that of self...

Re: Judge Rules in Favor of Teachers

This appears key: "The judge’s decision applies statewide to teachers who already have tenure, but not to those who haven’t yet earned it." Too, the state is in the process of "bribing" tenured teachers into taking a one time "bonus" to exchange their tenure status into a short contract. Relatively ...

Re: SoCon Cup Points 18 May 2014

Officially, as it stands now, how many sports will we field in SunBelt competition? Of course, meant by that, not counting ones we will field outside the SunBelt while still competing in the NCAA Division I.

Georgia State Tidbit

This is an excerpt from the Georgia State University website:

GSU is a commuter school with 61% of first-year students living off-campus and 17% of all undergraduates living on campus

I had never noticed a university labeling itself as a commuter school.

If there is a silver lining to this event it would be that she, thankfully, was not an App student.

66, your post was very nostalgic and quite informative. One thing to note is that Clogston was full time only a relatively short period of time during his stay with us.

Perhaps I'm being hyper-sensitive, but the term 'Siouxper drunk' is a slap in the face of we who have Native American blood coursing through our veins.

Re: Legit Big Man

Have we signed or retained a legitimate big man yet? Even if we had another scholarship to offer (and we don't) we aren't likely to find an impact player 6-9 or taller with the academic credentials we'll demand this late in the year. Nonetheless, we will be bigger overall. Lawson, Obacha, Kobani, K...

This is tragic. To top it off, it will hit more than the regional media. Unfortunately it goes to show that the old adage, nothing good happens after midnight, has some merit. Let's all hope that she has no lasting after effects. One can't help but wonder what the motivation was. Will it? Obviously...
