  1. Big series soon to open the season: top 4 UVA vs. top 15 ECU - my brother is a student manager for the Pirates and says this could be the best opening series of the season. Not that he's biased or anything.

  3. Rumor has it James Madison is going to have purple turf when they renovate their stadium.
  4. McElroy played with broken ribs from the SEC Championship. The gameplan and passing execution (minus PJs pass) make a lot more sense now. And from my biased point of view, I see nothing wrong with Alabama's last touchdown. They were simple dive plays, and if the defense can't stop them, you can't tell a player to just fall down at the goal line, and even if you did, he probably wouldn't listen.
  5. Did anyone think Lisa Saulters (no clue if I spelled that right) was asking Colt those questions about his injury/not playing a little too soon?
  6. 1. Chipper Jones (my absolute favorite athlete when I was growing up) 2. Brodie Croyle 3. John Stockton 4. Shaun Alexander 5. Steve Nash (the basketball player, not the hockey)
  7. From what I can see, I like them a lot more than what they currently have. I may have just missed it, but are they wearing different pants?
  8. He's never been a head coach, and couldn't get the job at Louisville or San Jose State. I doubt he would get the job at Florida. I'm putting my money on Wittingham from Utah or Charlie Strong.
  9. I couldn't get past the ridiculous jerseys and pants. I still cannot believe that they tampered with such a near-perfect look. They could have had their former jerseys for 20 years and they'd still have looked great. I agree with you on that. The overall look was a huge step backward. Y'all didn't know? This look is going to be more conducive to the colors and new logo when the team moves to LA! ....just kidding. The only good thing about this look was that they had the logo jerseys on sale and I was able to pick one up cheap.
  10. That would make everyone happy right? I would be very happy with that. Florida-Cincy would be an epic game and so would the Fiesta Bowl. I see Boise-TCU putting butts in couches for sure and even if the fan bases don't travel well, I think many interested people would buy tickets to the game.
  11. What a football day for my family: -ECU (brother) beats Houston when Case Keenum was on FIRE! He's a stud (if he'd stop throwing the ball so lax at times, if he fires 100% bullets, Houston wins that game). ECU's run defense came to play. -App (me) wins on a TD drive with a score with 7 seconds left on a strike from Armanti to Matt Cline. Just a few moments earlier we fumbled a punt return that the Spiders took to the house to take the lead with about 1 minute left. -Alabama (everyone) destroys Florida in the SEC championship. Everything that needs to be said already has been.
  12. No pics, but do come visit, there were only like ~2000 people at the game tonight, and that's a good showing...
  13. Thad and sc49erfan15 met tonight at the Holmes Convocation Center as the Apps took on Winthrop. Luckily the Good guys came on top, and I got to see the all famous Winthrop jersey.
  14. Crazy day in the FCS playoffs: App barely escapes South Carolina State yesterday when the Bulldogs botched a snap on the go-ahead field goal attempt and ASU ran it all the way back for a touchdown. (Highlights can be seen here: Montana scores 40 unanswered points in the last quarter and change to beat South Dakota State. Elon misses two(!) field goals in the fourth quarter that would have tied the game against defending champion Richmond.
  15. I can't exactly put my finger on it, but I don't like those Missouri helmets for some reason. Miami's looks really nice and looks much better (IMO) than what they normally wear. LSU's would look really good on Washington. I think of a more mustard yellow with LSU and gold for Washington.
  16. If you could do an App State #14 that would be awesome!
  17. Dear Santa... Great jersey. Definitely going to be on my wish list. Is there any word on who the sponsor may be?
  18. For those that care about FCS football (which I know is probably just me and the Spamster): Appalachian is playing Elon this afternoon for the conference championship and the automatic bid into the playoffs. Elon is 8-1,6-0 with their only loss being to Wake Forest. App is 7-2,6-0 with losses to East Carolina and McNeese State. Elon, while they have a better record, have played easier teams (Davidson and Presby). Elon is favored at home this afternoon, and has given App a little bit of motivation through the media, but nothing compared to a splash page on Elon's sport homepage that congratulated their team on winning the SoCon - before they have won it, and have to beat App to get it. This was found by some App fans on Friday afternoon and sent to coaches. Rumor has it that the picture was taped on every App players hotel room last night, hopefully that is all the bulletin board material they will need.
  19. ...yup, the SEC is much improved this year. If only App can beat Arkansas in a couple weeks....
  20. There couldn't be a penalty on Cody. I know I'm going to sound like a homer, but rule 9-2-1 states: "Unsportsmanlike Acts ARTICLE 1. There shall be no unsportsmanlike conduct or any act that interferes with orderly game administration on the part of players, substitutes, coaches, authorized attendants or any other persons subject to the rules, before the game, during the game or between periods. a. Specifically prohibited acts and conduct include: 1. No player, substitute, coach or other person subject to the rules shall use abusive, threatening or obscene language or gestures, or engage in such acts that provoke ill will or are demeaning to an opponent, to game officials or to the image of the game, including but not limited to: . . . (f) Removal of a player’s helmet before he is in the team area (Exceptions: Team, media or injury timeouts; equipment adjustment; through play; between periods; and during a measurement for a first down). . . . If committed while the ball is alive, these fouls are treated as dead-ball fouls. PENALTY — Dead-ball foul or live-ball foul treated as dead-ball foul. 15 yards [s7 and S27] from the succeeding spot. Flagrant offenders, if players or substitutes, shall be disqualified [s47]. If a player or an identified squad member in uniform commits two unsportsmanlike fouls in the same game, he shall be disqualified." Basically, no re-dos are allowed, the game was over, the period couldn't be extended since it was a dead ball foul. Kiffin was wrong - again. (research done with help from
  21. Picture courtesy of I figured when Grant came he'd bring a new design with him. I like the simplicity (I'm assuming SOD). I read a rumor where the homes are grey, but I have no clue if that's even 1% true.
  22. Here's what they look like at the game.
  23. Actually the gold jerseys were App State's idea, not Nike's. Really? Wow. It's just something that Nike would certainly do and so I assumed they put the thing in motion. Either way I do like them. That's you know who's idea it was at App? I think it was one of the senior administrators. Solid Gold (ie disco) is our homecoming theme. It makes sense now.
