Never known a player at App to be benched just because a transfer came from "big name U". We have a program of "earn your time" and I expect that to apply to every player regardless of how they entered the program. Also discussing a player or players performance does not equate to being dismissive of said players contributions to our program. We have high standards and expectations here, as we should, as long as it stays strictly about the play on the field(which I believe does more often than not) I have no issue with it.
On this board it does, Objective discussion is not allowed, only blind glowing assessments :oops:
Some people seriously seem to think it. It is like you can't criticize your own. Our players are not perfect and neither are we. If the players were to financially support me in my job then they are welcome to come tell me everything I do incorrectly and praise me for a job well done. Just because we point out a weakness of a player does not mean we don't support them. I just want to see the best for our players, staff, and school!

Don't think the wife would sign off on the transfer.
I checked with my wife: eligible immediately is a no-go, but if required to sit a year IAW NCAA rules, she’ll consider.

My philosophy on criticism is simple. If it’s something I wouldn’t say face-to-face to an athlete or coach or administrator at App, then I won’t say it in an open forum.

How something is presented can make or break the reaction you get. You can be rude or nice in how you say something. I just hope people are smarter about how they present certain opinions but don't lose the passion. We have a lot of passion for App State on this board and I hope our administration and team knows that. Many on here care deeply about our performance on and off the field.

Here is the 2021 Football Transfer Portal

https://247sports.com/Season/2021-Footb ... ferPortal/

Looks like Jackson State should have a pretty good team. A lot of guys from the SEC and P5 schools are going there. They might take the SWAC this year. I know we don't play them, but found it interesting that so many players transferred to JSU.

It’s all about “Prime Time”. We will see if he can coach.

His QB son switching his commitment should help them too. He looks like he could be the real deal.
I guess the team meals will consist of a lot of Subway footlongs. :lol:

And his other son Shilo (db) is transferring in from SCAR. On paper this will probably be the most talented FCS team in a long time, plus his coaching staff has some interesting names. Now if that translates to wins remains to be seen, but I'd bet they have a few "primetime" games on ESPN this year.


FREQS AND GEEKS!

With the firing of Pruitt at UT Knoxville, wonder if this recent Greensboro HIgh School QB transfer would like to reconsider the decision and come to the Rock. He and CB can fight it out for QB1. https://247sports.com/Player/Hendon-Hooker-77456/

Was App even considered initially? Doubtful we take another one.

Coaching and talent matters equally. You can have all the talent but if you aren't well coached and kept focused it won't matter. He should win win the SWAC based on the talent he has. If he coaches as well as he played then he won't stay but maybe 2 years before getting a P5 offer.

Looks like a nice grad transfer pickup coming our way out of Stanford. Safety Stuart Head. Interesting grab.

A little concerned that he may be surprised about how difficult the academics may be compared to Stanford. 😂

A 6’4” safety, we don’t get that very often. Great pick up!

Smith will add some quality depth for our RB corp.
