Re: Game 4, 2018-2019 Howard 11/16/18

I've seen worse on Twitter. I get the connection to his son and all, but it's not like Steve is the AD. Maybe I'm just not seeing the issue, but nothing to get worked up over IMO.

Re: Whip Gone?

I think UMASS made a huge mistake leaving the MAC! I'll admit, I don't fully understand the reasons behind why they left...I feel like it had to do with the MAC wanting the basketball team to join the conference and UMASS had no interest leaving the A-10...but honestly...is the MAC that much worse ...

Re: Head coaching options

I'm not sure how to find this data, so maybe McKinney could help me out here. I'd love to find a guy in FCS who managed to achieve the most success with the least amount of resources. I suppose a simple comparison between ranking and athletic budget could be a good start :? I did that analysis abou...

Re: Whip Gone?

I don't think anyone said he deserves no blame. When you've won 16 games in 5 years there's plenty of blame to go around, but you simply can't deny the issues this program faces. From lack of conference, antique crumbling stadium, a "tv deal" where you're lucky to get picture and sound both working...

Re: Game 5, 2018-2019 Arkansas Pine-Bluff 11/19/18

ESPN + needs to do something with their commercials. To keep seeing the same commercials every time out is pretty bad. If no one is buying the spots, there's only so much they can do. They can't just make commercials appear out of nowhere. They are relying more on the $4.99 a month that we are payi...

Re: Game 5, 2018-2019 Arkansas Pine-Bluff 11/19/18

Didn't see any of the game but looking at the box score I don't see Unique listed, did he get into the game? Attendance was 2034 which was higher than I thought it would be after reading some of the posts on Twitter. Still, when you consider that it was only ~1/5th full, you kind of get a UMass @ G...

Re: Game 5, 2018-2019 Arkansas Pine-Bluff 11/19/18

I missed the game but I am increasingly concerned that Pip was the leading rebounder. sure, it works against teams in the bottom 5% of D1 basketball but that's it. The rest of the team needs to play as hard as Pip does. It looked to me like everyone was putting forth the effort, which is an upgrade...

That crowd looks so sad. So, so sad.
Are the students already on break? Thought they would have classes till tomorrow. Why wouldn't you go to the game?
We have the week off. Dorms closed Saturday morning. Dining halls closed Saturday at 1PM. I was there, but I live off-campus.

I went there for a game when we played them years ago, don't remember when, a great experience.
1977 or 2005?

It's soooooo quiet. Not surprised, but I'm like one of three people in the student section.

I’m more interested in the attitude the team shows than I am in the margin of victory.
Honesty kind of applies to the season as a whole

Re: 2018-2019 Season

The thing I don't like about Corsi, PDO, etc. is that they're calculated at even or full strength. While maybe that's a better representation of relative strength, it completely removes having elite or poor special teams from the equation. Unfortunate. I also don't like the PDO because it makes the ...

Re: Head coaching options

If anyone is looking to wash away the taste of this season I highly recommend watching the Army Black Knights on December 8th against Navy and whatever bowl game they get into. I’ve become a fan this season watching them play, love the option offense and their grit and determination on defense. Yes...
