ECU has daily practice reports with Mike Houston. Charlotte has practice reports.

Everyone has practice reports that I've looked at. Why is App State different.

Drink is running the program like a P5 school. Limited media availability and limited 11 on 11. Not saying it’s good. Not saying it’s bad.

Those with media access will tell you its a different ball game with Drink. Take it for what its worth. As some have suggested, perhaps it changes with time.

Almost all P5 programs I've checked including Miami and NC State have daily practice updates. On top of that the local papers have access for interviews and publish good information about the state of the team in camp.

We do things differently now. No sense in complaining about it because it isn't going to change.

The point is that with the first new coach from outside the program since Jerry Moore, you'd think App would want to put more information out there, not less. From a marketing stand point it doesn't make sense, and from a fan excitement standpoint (not the good ol' boys club) it doesn't make sense. You would think recruits who may be trying to follow App may be a bit disappointed at the JV level coverage as well.

You understand that this isn’t App driven. This is Coach driven.

What information are you going to even get from “daily updates”? I’ve read daily updates during the SS years behind pay walls and always found them pretty useless. Especially considering we pretty much know the depth chart. In the end this is just another very small thing to complain about. If Drink starts taking L’s and is still this guarded from the media without answering questions then it should be a problem.

To change the topic a little. Does anyone know anything about the "funky" looking padded head gear that I am seeing in pics posted on FB? I figured they were for safety reasons to avoid excessive blows to the head.

Let's start by asking twitter to unsuspend the @AppState_FB. Come on twitter, "Let my people go!"

Right now, with so little information of any kind other than the coach speak from Media Day, no one outside the Program has any real idea of what's going on. In September none of it will really matter, per say, but App has a mini-battle for the Carolina's coming up this season and it would be great to see some enthusiasm from official sources.

Note: This isn't purely for selfish or unselfish reasons. We all wait 8 months for Football to come back around and it only lasts about 4-months. Information is the driver of program excitement in many ways, particularly with a Rookie Head Coach and new system in place.

I demand more information with "Pride, Passion, & Purpose", because that's how I live my life.

I’m seeing just as much coverage this morning as I have in years past.
