I have a huge amount of respect and gratitude for our previous coaches but It certainly feels like we've upgraded our coaching staff somewhat. As for Drink himself, he just exudes confidence and is incredibly well-spoken and seems to be just a good man in general. I think that parents are going to have no issues sending their sons up the mountain to play, and with this staff he's putting together, I think the kids will love playing for these guys.

As to upgrading, it would seem we should wait a year or two to evaluate as next season will be using mostly Coach Satterfield's recruits.

What I like the most is that I have noticed that every hire has focused on the talking points and concerns most of us Alumni have had. They harp particularly on the culture piece and seem to be sold on our “special things happen on the mountain” mantra. You do not get these types of guys if you have not earned the respect. Drink is validating what we have all believed and he is ready to take it to the nation. If you aren’t excited, you have no soul and you are one of the guys wishing we had stayed in the FCS ranks.

They can all be individually great but need to develop a cohesive chemistry with each other andthe players. I saw Satt had all his team at a bowling alley with the coaches as an example.

Eli couldn’t go wrong inviting his crew up to a house on Meat Camp Rd for a good old fashion kegger. Getting drunk and singing along to Tom Petty is a great way to build cohesiveness and make new friends, it is the Appalachian way.

Once a week Dabo gets all his coaches, administrative staff, all spouses, and all players together for a family dinner. Hoping Drink does something to that nature. Throw a couple kegs in there as well.

Don’t we have a coach in place now that can talk some sense into Duck. His stock will definitely rise if he stays on board and learns from guys who’ve been there and done that. I’m not sure of his motivating factors. But, long term, he’s missing the boat. Possibly missing a cruise ship. Regardless, best of luck to him if he chooses otherwise. It’s his decision to make.
Please give this BS a rest. What do you mean "talk some sense into Duck"? Like he needs message board mommies to tell him what to do. It's small minded and embarrassing. Let the guy chart his course, just be glad we were lucky enough to have him on our squad.

Tell me if I’m wrong but since he has already declared for the draft he can’t come back??

Yes. Roof addressed it yesterday in his interview with the media. He said that horse had left the barn before he came aboard.

It's really good if you like K&W, Cracker Barrel, or canned sausages covered in american cheese.

Once every couple years for dinner, when you’re in the mood is fine. The breakfast is good and a better value.
Overrated, perhaps, but a lot of “mature” visitors consider it THE destination in the High Country. Whatever floats their boat.

You gotta get the takeout. No waiting and only like $7 for fried chicken, 2 sides, a biscuits and dessert.
Much better than dining in

Ethan Joyce, Winston-Salem Journal, has another good App State Football article about 3 of our new football coaches - "App Trail: App State's Ted Roof, Ken Dorsey and Erik Link talk about their new roles."

https://www.journalnow.com/sports/asu/f ... t=headline

Beat ETSU!!
Multiple and base out of a 3-4. As I said multiple times, it would be a mistake to switch to a base 4 man front so I'm glad to be vindicated by Roof. Having played the NCAA Franchise, it's difficult to switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4 :lol: (kidding)

Also, based on his interview, it sounds like he is here for more than just a chance to get back to a P5 school.
I thought he certainly said the right things. If wants to be at a place where he can enjoy the people he works with and enjoy the guys he coaches he is now in a place that should make him happy. I hope he is at a point where he is financially well off and does it more for the love of the game. Winning is fun and less stressful and that would be what I would want late in my career. He is inheriting a solid foundation. If can continue to build upon that then even the worst doubters here will be converted.

Wonder if this is his last stop. If so, I bet he gets himself a retirement place in the high country.
