Re: #19 In Final AP Poll

I'm not upset about Memphis. In my opinion, if they had been blown out we should have jumped them. I don't think the G5 representative should be penalized for losing in a competitive game to a top ranked P5 team. I think App could have competed with Memphis and possibly won if we had played, but th...

Re: Missouri State to the Sun Belt?

Petrino is using Missouri State to get back to a Power 5 job. The sad thing is, I can see a lower tier P5 taking a chance on him if he does well enough. Petrino is a scumbag that shouldn't be coaching. As for Missouri State, they weren't even a finalist when the decision to call up CCU was made. Th...

Last year I felt:
Iffy on HC, like the retention of assistants.

This year:
Love HC, iffy on assistants.
Is it the assistants we actually have that you're concerned about, or just Jones as DC + the uncertainty?

Re: Missouri State to the Sun Belt?

I think it's under the radar because you're the first person to link it with a potential Sun Belt move, and there's no obvious reason why the Sun Belt would want to add them.

Re: Football Staff

I thought y’all were talking Elder as QB coach only. I looked him up a few weeks back just to see where he was, but I don’t think he has the resume/experience to be a QB coach for us yet, never mind OC.

Well hey it's the second straight year this board has been less than thrilled about our DC hire!
The last one provided ample ammo for everyone to stick to their preconceived opinions, and I expect this one will do the same.

Re: Who stays, who goes?

Like the Kuechly thoughts, but pretty sure he lands on the Panthers staff. Gonna miss watching him play. I say hire him as Co-defensive coordinator and play caller right now, if he wanted it. He can do whatever he wants to do now, I'm sure. Doubt he's spent much of the money he's made. Doesn't meed...

Re: #19 In Final AP Poll

For context, a list of every team in North Carolina in the last 15 years to finish the season ranked by the AP:

2015 UNC - 15
2006 Wake Forest - 18
2019 App State - 19
2013 Duke - 23
2017 NC State - 23
2010 NC State - 25

If you're wondering, ECU last finished the season ranked in 1991.

Re: #19 In Final AP Poll

19 is exactly where I was guessing. I was hoping we would jump over Memphis but I really didn't expect to. VERY PROUD to be a MOUNTAINEER! I'm disappointed for UL but the problem is that they played 3 games against opponents where they could make a statement and they lost all three, even though the...

Moved up one spot to 19 in the final AP poll. Memphis remains the highest ranked G5.

Two points behind #18 Michigan.

Re: Who stays, who goes?

And our schedule was harder this year? Perhaps. The rankings I can find show our SoS about the same over the past couple years. We are replacing five studs on defense as well. Such is the nature of college football. In 2018 we replaced all-conference Howard, Boggs, Stringer, Sims and Fuller, plus s...

Re: Who stays, who goes?

Anyway you look at it, our defense will not perform to the same level as last few years. All defensive coaches will have to learn what our players can and cannot do and then adjust our play calling to fit. I think that someone uttered this same sentiment last year. That worked out OK. Whoever said ...

Re: Should the Sun Belt look North?

All that said, we don't need to be too quick to jump at realignment. Outside of 3 teams the Sunbelt is bad but we were still in the NY6 conversation. I realize we have history with Marshall and we could bike to Charlotte but which of the perspective newbies is better than Louisiana? Trading a good ...

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. I don't think it's a "desire". If a geographic realignment...

I think the ceiling is 17, floor is 21. I'll split the difference and guess 19.

Re: Nike Mountaineer Football Gear

Any of y'all who lament that we change our uniforms around too much better pray we never move to UA or especially Adidas. Outside of their guinea pigs in Eugene, Nike is by far the most measured in uniform design of the big three apparel companies.

Re: Should the Sun Belt look North?

I completely agree with this. Consistently being in the top 20 is possible for us, yet some people don’t want or can’t understand the AAC is the ideal conference that we should be considering ourselves getting into. Maybe it’s just some really want that short drive all the time rather than a better...

Re: Wake Forest QB headed to Georgia

Really need to reinforce the trenches on both sides of the ball. Our secondary and Linebackers have been consistently top in the sun belt since we came up but our d line has struggled. Need another Myquon Stout to come out of the woodwork. Good news is we get Chris Willis back next year and him plu...

Not meaning to be elitist here but I didn’t realize how irrelevant FCS football was until I quit looking for scores in 2015.
Same, but in fairness, I wasn’t exactly locked in on Sun Belt football before we joined and I doubt many others were either.

Didn’t watch until the end, but it was an exciting finish. Bad game/clock management by JMU hurt their chances.
