Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

It’s funny…I read message boards (I like to see if our fans sound as crazy as others). Some of us think we’re shoe-ins for the AAC because we have good football. Georgia State and UAB think they’re shoe-ins because “marketz”. JMU thinks they’re shoe-ins because of their facilities. AAC fans don’t w...

Re: 12 team playoff? All P5 conference champs to be in, 1 G5 Champ, six at large

I could get behind a playoff with AQ for the P5 and AAC (P6?) and a 7th AQ for the best of the other 4. Though my preferred playoff would be a 14 team playoff with 10 AQ with play-in games for the bottom four seeds and double byes for the top 4. For what it’s worth, in this scenario: UAB (6-3) Ball...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama is where we should continue to focus outside of our home state. Good if not great HS football in these states. All three states have only 2 P5 schools by my count. All three can be reached in less than 350 miles (6 hr.) drive. App State winning tradition, culture an...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

Your list of players are based on current day. Sure, if we had the ability to foreshadow these guys development then what your saying would work. But it just isn’t practical. You list all these states that we need to hit to get eyes on kids, but who is going to pay for that? We aren’t swimming in m...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

First off we won’t be expanding our recruiting footprint much beyond what we already recruit not just because we don’t have the money for more travel, which we don’t (and also we only have a limited number of recruiting travel days allowed each year), but more importantly we don’t have the relation...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

Imagine…………. That is a nice sentiment…. but the reality is quite different. Of course we miss on kids… so does every FBS team. It is not unusual to miss on a kid as a matter fact I would it’s more the rule than the exception. Look the pros miss during the draft regularly. They have far more resourc...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

We all want APP to get the best players that they can. And by in large, we do. The record and the company that we keep in that category supports that. Will we occasionally win a legit head to head battle with some P5s? Yes. Will it happen consistently, doubtful. It’s the nature of the beast. The ra...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

Can we just all agree that draft picks and any NFL related metric is a waste of time when discussing talent at the college level? I like getting guys drafted because I want to see them earn a living at the sport they love and because it helps continue the growth trajectory of our program, but from ...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

So let me ask you this about the guys listed above. As giddy as you get to see our commits with P5 offers. Would you have been just as giddy, or concerned that we offered a kid whose only other offer was Wisconsin Whitewater or Concordia St. I’m guessing you wouldn’t have been thinking these guys w...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

The list you put together is interesting and thank you for taking the time to do that - but :>) with that being said it really doesn't point out one major factor - how good were these guys coming out of high school? You never know, heck JJ Watt had to walk-on at Wisconsin - Also, if I am rememberin...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

We can and do take our cuts and offer, “better” players. You miss 100% of the recruits you don’t offer. But they have to be realistic in where they put their time and effort. Definitely agree but there is plenty of future NFL Draft picks and top end college talent who land at lower schools than us ...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

Re: 2021 Football Roster

I am not following what you are actually trying to say. You like our success, which comes from good talent evaluation and development. But at the same time, you want to leverage the system that got us to this point to get better players? How are you defining the term “better”? We can get bigger, im...

Re: 2021 Football Roster

Yeah, I agree. I count 17 D-linemen on the current roster. We have Jordan Earle at 6'2 300 and Blackstock at 6'1 270. For the bowl game last year, the two-deep at NT was Earle and Dingle-Prince at 6'0 255. I'm assuming those three will be the rotation at NT. I don't know much about Chris Washington...

Re: Athlon All Sun Belt Team--4 deep

A couple snubs from the league off the top of my head. That big DT at CCU is underrated not even getting anything. Surprised Cobb got nothing and I thought Harrington was low. I don't see how there are 12 LBs in the SBC better than Cobb.
