Re: 17 Mountaineers on PFF's All Conference Team

No mention of Corey Sutton at all. I know he opted out last year because of needed recovery, but dang it is like these guys didn't see him play before that. Talk about a slight. These guys have the memory of a gnat. They'll remember him soon, though! Sutton is a big snub for sure. They have the Cle...

Re: 2021 depth

For you guys arguing over recovery time of ACLs it was once just about a death wish for a career and took every bit of a year or more to recover from but that is no longer the case. It is still hard but some athletes bounce back as fast as 6 months and typically is 7-8 1/2 months. They can take 9-10...

Re: 2021 depth

I get your point. You make that statement that our incoming guys don’t have special teams experience. Are you referring to the freshmen or the transfers? I look at it this way, Ellis has zero game reps at CB. Wright has a few, call it 50 for argument sake. So while they looked to provide some quali...

Re: Starting tomorrow, NCAA athletes can make money from endorsements

interesting... NBC Sports @NBCSports Dabo Swinney says he may quit college football if players get paid http://bit.ly/2WeG29V . just saw a radio station is going to choose 5 football players who will come on the air for 1 hour each week and make $25,000 for the year. Kudos to them. That should be t...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

Hindsight being 20/20, I’m not sure that I would have categorized us as thin at TE at the beginning of the season. We had Pearson and Crosby, both FBS experienced. Evans came from a DII school, but I don’t see the relevance there. If he couldn’t play, he wouldn’t have got the spot, and I think that...

Re: 2021 depth

Our depth at CB just took a "huge" hit. Got to develop some young talent really quick! Ouch! Meh. Not a starter. Next man up. Yep, but the question is who is the next man up? There really isn't much depth back there and when you consider the attrition we've had at that position, I think it is a con...

Re: Starting tomorrow, NCAA athletes can make money from endorsements

I think this will work out fine. The free market will regulate itself like it does in all other areas. All the doomsday scenarios that have always been put forth in the past any time there has been any change in college sports have never come close to playing out. People said the same things before...

Re: NIL helps CFB competitive balance - Yahoo article

The lines won't blur. That conference logo will supersede because they know that league logo will give them a bigger audience and platform for their NIL. I don't see top 200 recruits just turning down P5 offers to now attend the Sun Belt or MWC on a regular basis. This will drain more resources and ...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

Injuries to key guys is and will be the main driver of overall success and failure of a season. It’s not the only thing, but it affects so much. Starters are starters for a reason. Back ups are backups for reasons. We all would like to think that it’s because the starter is just way ahead of the ba...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

I'm hoping the change at OC will make a huge difference in the offense this season. Zac never appeared comfortable last season and my belief was that the offense had become much too predictable. We could line up and just run the ball against the lesser programs on our schedule but that didn't work ...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

I would like to see sets where we use TEs heavily to block and then others where we don't. I don't mind hearing our blocking is effected when 2-3 injuries on the OL but would hate for us to lose depth at TE and it be detrimental to our blocking scheme again. With all this debate I have to ask two qu...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

I'm shocked he put App so far down that list. There's at least 10 teams I thought ... Really? Ahead of App? I think that disrespect will go away in a few years. Especially with the jump in recruiting I saw from App last year. App has had a great run in the Belt without bringing in the top recruitin...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

We don’t typically go head to head with them for recruits. Looking at their last two classes and their commits for this year, there isn’t one with an offer from APP. They do go head to head with Charlotte quite a bit. The last recruit that we went straight up with them was TE Shane Calhoun. He wait...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

Wow putting the potential of a good/great/decent/bad/horrible all on one game. I mean I get it but geez. We have really set our bar high. Think of how many programs would kill for 8-4. Again, I totally get it but even if we don’t beat ECU and Miami whose to say we wouldn’t bounce back and run the t...

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

The Revenge Tour begins on September 2nd in Charlotte. I hope so. A loss to An ECU that’s been bad for a while would note bode well for the season, nor our national perception. The pressure is on.

Re: G5 Preseason Top 25

This why you play the game. Our D is going to be so good. This prognosticator is way off. Agree with you. I feel like we lose 2-3 games total this year but say we lose 3 I would still think we should be top 12-15 in the G5 unless those losses are to unranked teams or Louisiana and Coastal Carolina ...
