He was not an FCS recruit. He would not have come to App if we were not transitioning to FBS. Also, as far as P5 competion, that is a bit unfair as well. He has not played a middle tier P5 program...they have all been very good programs. He may have looked limited at times but understand this, his O Line played a huge role in how his performance was against P5 teams. And btw, he had some very decent outings against those teams. He's a winner and we were lucky to have him.

appstatealum, as was mentioned, Taylor was not a FCS recruit. He was on his was to the Sun Belt USA Jags, until he changed his mind and decided on App.
I can't think of a game we lost because of TL, but I sure do think he was critical to us winning some we otherwise might not have. I will join you in your toast, but I think you have unrealistic expectations. Good luck with those.

I think he goes down as the second best qb to wear the black and gold. Honestly, what he has accomplished during a transition is unprecedented and frankly should get more media attention. Yes, he had some limits in his skill set but not in his leadership and determination. Taylor Lamb has been great for Appalachian and we are all fortunate we had him at the helm for our transition because what has been a great 4 year run could have been really challenging, just ask southern.

So, I am a '05-'06 Alum and have only missed a handful of games since 2002. Back in 2015, I came on here and stated that Lamb was a good FCS QB, but would limit our success as we move forward in the FBS. Of course, my critique opened the floodgates of backlash, but it was never a personal shot at Lamb. My opinion really has not changed, as I feel like Lamb was very limited and it really showed in his performances against P5 competition (which I attended all but the Michigan game). HOWEVER, after reflecting on his career, we could not have asked for a better player and young man to come in and be the guy to lead us through a transition. He was an FCS recruit and his arm was not the best, but he was a "gamer" and used what he had to lead us to 3 straight bowl wins and one of the best FBS records over the last 3 years. Tonight, I toast to you, Taylor Lamb. Thank you for what you did for the Black and Gold. I will happily eat this crow, as I can't imagine anyone else accomplishing the same feat.
I would be lying if I said I was not excited to see the future at QB, perhaps have a QB who can make the plays with his arm that Taylor did with his legs. A truly new era has arrived in Boone, lets embrace it and continue to propel this program forward.
