As National Signing Day approaches, Scout.com looks at the top-rated recruit in each state in America that has an FBS-level prospect. (Alaska, New Hampshire, Maine and North Dakota didn't make the cut this year.)

Editorial: Rams in the Roses

Congratulations to Albany State University's Marching band and thanks for helping to bring in the New Year at the 2016 Tournament of Roses Parade! 

Since March 2015, the university has been working to raise funds to participate in this premier event! 

Not only did they raise the needed funds, they exceeded their goal with remaining funds going to scholarships for ASU students!

Prior to participating in this year's event, Band Director Michael Decuir and the band met the strict criteria for their invite to the international parade, including their excellent and professional musicianship, their strong performance skills, and their outstanding directorship!

You put the spotlight on ASU, the city of Albany, and the state of Georgia with your performance and even marched onto the front page of the Los Angeles Times!  Way to go! 

We are proud of you and your performance.  We also hope this was not the last time we'll see the "Rams in the Roses!"

3  Discussion / Sports Forum / Albany State seeks to build off last year’s late success on: January 30, 2016, 08:40:06 AM
ALBANY — With one season and an SIAC baseball championship under his belt, Albany State coach Daniel Stockdale said the team is on a mission to build on last year’s success and make some noise at a national level.

All-American Terence Worthy, who will playing first base this year, echoed those sentiments and said the Rams won’t let anything stand in their way.

“I feel great,” Worthy said. “I feel like we’re ready. I feel like these practices, running in the rain, running in the cold, working out in weather no other team works out in is going to prepare us. Nothing’s going to stop us. We’re on a mission and we’re ready for it.”

At this point last season, Stockdale was trying to pick up the pieces after Kenyan Conner departed for Benedict. Stockdale was trying to get acclimated to the school and the city all while trying to find a place to stay. He said there was an adjustment period at first.

“Last year was an experience in its own self,” he said. “Just learning the players, understanding Albany State and how things are done in the departments fiscally, operations, management, just having to learn all of those things was a challenge initially.”

As a result of Stockdale having to hit the ground running, the Rams stumbled out of the gate with a 1-17 record. He said that the key was winning over the seniors at the time and getting the team to adopt a winning mentality despite their struggles.

From there, they improved and finished 12-5 in conference play and won the program’s first tournament title since 2010. Worthy said once they started seeing the results, it was easy to get on board.

“When coach came it was a new coach and nobody knew what to expect,” he said. “He just brought in this mentality that we’re going to win. Like there’s no doubt about it, we’re going to win. We’re going to win the championship and we’re going to keep going. So it’s just been about moving forward ever since he came.”

They bring that same mentality back this year along with seven players which includes Worthy, center fielder Reese McDaniel and junior catcher Johnathon Gallan. With Stockdale’s style fully implemented, they’re excited to get to work. He said they’ve already seen some early success after a strong showing in fall preseason games where six freshmen started.

“We had some success in the fall,” he said. “We played some top competition this fall, and we were able to prove that Albany State was a flagship program in southwest Georgia.”

This year, Stockdale said the Rams will rely on their defense as well as their strong run game. ASU was the number four team in the NCAA in stolen bases last year and this year he wants to improve that number all while playing small ball and leading in sacrifice bunts as well as moving runners over.

The Rams start season on Wednesday at Valdosta State. ASU will then travel to Lee University Feb. 6-7 before returning home to face Valdosta State again on Feb. 9.

Albany State has a challenging non-conference schedule which includes national perennial powers Columbus State, Armstrong Atlantic State, Florida Tech and the University of Tampa. Tampa won the NCAA Division II national championship in 2015 and is ranked as the preseason No. 1.

This is all before getting into conference play. Stockdale said the SIAC is getting stronger, adding teams like Springfield College out of Alabama. He added that Stillman and Tuskegee remain top-tier teams in the conference, as well as Miles and he said his team will have to stay focused on getting better in order to go farther.

Albany State’s Worthy named to preseason South Region team

The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association has released its 2016 Division II Preseason South Region teams. Albany State infielder Terrence Worthy has been named to the squad’s first team.

Worthy, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound junior from McDonough recorded a .421 batting average during the 2015 season while playing shortstop. He also had 51 hits, 34 runs, 25 RBIs and 21 stolen bases. He led the SIAC with his batting average and also ranked in the NCAA Top 10.

7  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / 6 Arizona Students Used School Spirit T-Shirts to Spell Out the "N" Word on: January 24, 2016, 04:44:07 PM
In what can only be described as the most offensive game of Boggle to ever take place, six students who took part in Desert Vista High School's senior photo shoot to spell out "Best * You've * Ever * Seen * Class* Of * 2016" rearranged the letters after the photo shoot to spell out "Ni**er," Phoenix local affiliate ABC 15 reported.

According to ABC15, parents contacted the local station once the photo was making rounds on social media.

In an official statement from superintendent Kenneth R. Baca, the school official called the event "unacceptable."

"We need to understand that words matter," Baca said. "I can assure you that appropriate disciplinary action will be taken."

Desert Vista principal Christina Barela added she shared the "outrage and disappointment" over the photo in a letter to parents, as well.

"We want to make it crystal clear those actions are unacceptable and will not be tolerated at Desert Vista," Barela wrote. "Those actions do not represent who we are as a campus."

Other groups have also come together to say that the girls' actions do not represent the campus. The Black Student Union tweeted out a message to its followers late Friday afternoon.

This got to be a joke

You're absolutely right,Bluedog. it is a f'ing joke. With Jameis Winston and the talent the Bucs have on the team,Lovie has them moving in the right direction. What in the hell was the front office thinking? Another damn setback for Tampa bay.
Its now speculations that the QB Winston may have had a hand in this by preferring Dirk Koetter.  shrug


This is BS. Why would Winston need to do this? He was already the OC.
9  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Rose Bowl apologizes for Stanford's halftime performance on: January 09, 2016, 03:57:49 PM
Stanford's band pulled off one of the most talked about halftime shows in recent memory as it performed a FarmersOnly.com themed show during the Rose Bowl.
While the performance was certainly unique, and hilarious to some, the Tournament of Roses was forced to apologize for the actions of the Stanford band.

"Given the fine reputations of the schools in these conferences, we have not felt the need to review in any significant detail the planned performances of their representatives,'' the Tournament of Roses said in a statement, per the San Jose Mercury News. "The halftime performance was not in line with the values of the Rose Bowl Game and we will be reviewing our policies and procedures with regard to future band performances."

The script for the show was reviewed by Stanford and the Rose Bowl, according to Stanford's associate VP of communications Lisa Lapin. However, the review was not in-depth, per the San Jose Mercury News.

Stanford also issued a statement regarding the performance:

"The Band's halftime show has provoked a variety of reactions. The performance was intended to be irreverent fun, given Iowa's connection to farming and Stanford's historical nickname "The Farm." The script posted on the Band's Facebook page provides fuller context. We understand that some viewers took offense at the performance, which we regret and which will be the subject of further discussion with the Band's leadership."

The Stanford band had been prohibited from performing during away games during the 2015 season due to unruly off-the-field behavior. However, it requested approval to perform at the Rose Bowl and the request was granted.

There was a high school band there(Allen, Texas) that was the largest band in the world. Over 700 members. How can a band that size move around the field? How large is TOO large?
