This is awesome for both programs and a fantastic way for the rekindled rivalry to kickoff!

Is 2020 turning a corner?

Getting that traditional SEC game slot is big time.

Wow, prime college game time on national network tv! That doesn't happen often at all. In fact, I can't think of a time it has happened at all. Can anybody else?

wow pressure just amped up. Definitely glad for all of our ESPN broadcasts last year that the leaders on this team are used to national audiences (even though this is the biggest). I'd expect some nerves from both sides since this is unprecedented for G5 schools.

This game just went from being important to “one of the most important branding games we will ever play”.

I posted this over lunch but I don't think it made it to the board.

Ahywhooo, we are undefeated when playing on CBS. We played at The Citadel on Sept 24, 1983. So we are undefeated in away games during the month of September when the game aired on the CBS network. 1-0 under those conditions. Let's make it 2-0.


This is my very generic signature added to each post.

Was skeptical about going kept talking myself down. Now I’m stoked beyond belief.

Really hoping we go with the all white "stormtrooper" look this week. Will go great with the likely all green the Turds will be wearing.


Body stuck in Gaston County...heart stuck in Boone! Go Apps!

Didn't want to start a new thread. The secondary against Marshall QB is a matchup to watch... basically saying he was good in opener but will be tested for real against App State...

Do we get the announcers that normally do the SEC prime game? Doesn't really matter. Network and Time slot is more important than announcers. Just curious

Wonder if we have to train the announcers to pronounce Appalachian correctly?

No Verne or Gary Daniels. Ethan reported who was calling the game, but I can’t remember who they are off hand.

"Rich Waltz, former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and Sherree Burruss will announce the game for CBS."

Per article from Ethan.
