I know most of our schools would never put the student section behind the bench, but it’s actually pretty smart. If you’ve got a rowdy student section harassing the visiting team all night I’m quite sure it’ll give the home team at least a slight advantage. I believe a few PWI’s do the same thing.

On the flip side, I can definetly see a couple of students taking the trash talk too far and that leading to problems but the pros outweigh the cons, IMO.

Once again, when you play in the SEC...particularly the SEC Western Division, you shouldn’t have to schedule a tough non conference. Everyone wants to pick on Bama for their easy non conference schedule but some of you are the same ones that somehow think UCF deserved a shot in the playoffs. Can anyone honestly say Alabama doesn’t play tough games every single year? No. I get it, some of you don’t like Bama. But let’s not act like they didn’t go up against tough competition to earn their titles.

I think Savannah State is going to be a monster next year.

I’ll believe it when I see it.

It’s kinda weird/lazy how this article is written as if MHC didn’t just lose to Benedict...but cool achievement, I guess.

Not really. Their loss this week doesn't effect this ranking. It will, however, drop their ranking in the NEXT poll.

I understand that their ranking wouldn't be affected until next week. What I'm saying is that for a story to be dated January 16, the writer isn't telling the reader the entire story when they leave out something significant that happened two nights before. That's not meat to be a slight against MHC.

Will those chickens ever get out of their own way? Probably not. Who steals their logo from an in state school? And why would they announce it the day after their rival wins their second national championship in three years?

Translation:  Given our current financial situation we would not be able to hire a coach the quality of Buddy Pough.  :tiptoe:

Exactly. I don’t know why we had to go through all this drama in the first place.

Pretty mixed reactions from the Claflin alumni so far is what I'm hearing. I'm still not 100% sold on Baltimore but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't going to go in two years. I'm actually even a little excited about it as this will give me a chance to see some of my DMV classmates that I haven't seen since graduation. What'll probably be make or break for me personally is how much more/less money I end up spending because I never spent a whole lot in Charlotte.

It was a piss poor showing from the Orange and Maroon, that’s for sure. We’ve got to stop taking nights off mentally.

Welp...looks like I was wrong.

So Holgerson leaves Morgantown and the P5 for Houston (AAC). Does the ACC or Big XII have expansion plans on the horizon that include Houston?

Makes perfect sense. Reasons listed below

1. Your in Texas , talent rich. Better climate
2. Houston is a stepping stone job. Look at Kevin Sumlin and Tom Herman.
3. Houston plays in the AAC. A lot easier than the Big XII
4. Houston is heavily invested in their football program

1. Yes, you’re in Texas. That means just about every school in the country is poaching recruits from your state. This includes UT and TAMU who are going to get first dibs on whoever they want.
2. Why would Holgersen need a stepping stone job if he’s already currently at a P5?
3. A lot easier conference that (as we’ve seen with UCF) gets virtually no respect nationally.
4. True, but they still aren’t even in the same stratosphere as Texas or Texas A&M so it’s not like recruits are going to chose Houston for the facilities.

I get that Holgersen may be on his way out at WV, but anyway you slice it, UH would be a downgrade.

1. You can only sign 25 recruits. It's more than enough quality players in Texas to go arounf
2. Because if he is getting ready to be on the hot seat, why not go somewhere to pad his resume and get another P5 job?
3. Respect is relative , the man is trying to get a better job. All he has to do is win. Where did UCF coach go , Nebraska. Remember Bosie State coach , He's in Washington. West Virginia isn't going to get him to the top jobs in the P5 world. Houston Can

Downgrading is very risky. If Holgersen doesn’t win just about every game his stock is going to plummet and he may never find another P5 HC gig.
