after we lost I immediately thought of the GS/Georgia game, I watched that entire game, and like tonight, thought the better team didn't win that night, I guess it better than getting blown out, like everyone was expecting, but still...dam

Okay, that's it...

Calling all GS fans, we need huddle up and re-think our approach on this board.


I came here thinking you guys were nuts.

I still think you're a little nutty, but they take the cake. lol

And you would only want App to lose to make sure Seminole continues to come back up your disdain for anything related to App State being successful. What you fail to discuss is that the top teams, or any teams, in the belt doing well (winning) out of conference games bodes well for every member.

I also remember your score prediction, which is more likely what you were "hoping" for, however I won't post it here.

#Eaglesgonnaswoopdownandcarryoffthatwolfpup

Before this gets started, lets be clear. There were a bunch of AState fans rooting for Tennessee tonight. For us, this was a catch-22. There's not a ton of love lost when it comes to App in Jonesboro, but we also hate the SEC with a passion. Many took the opportunity to root for App State, believing what's good for the Sun Belt is good for Arkansas State. At the same time, there are groups of fans who are very concerned that we might share a league title with App, and want to be nationally recognized as the Sun Belt's best team. App beating Tennessee would hurt our chances there.

What you saw was a decent number who settled on a hard fought close loss, giving App a defeat, but at the same time giving the proper respect for the league.

There's nothing wrong with that, and let me be clear, no one is trolling by mentioning this. Wolf Bird honestly was cheering for a close App loss tonight, and was honestly worried that Tennessee might run you over. We're happy that didn't happen, and offer mad props to you for staying with them.

Still unreasonable. Pull for a close loss due to an end of season scenario that isn't certain to occur, especially considering the way you played when App came to Jonesboro, except this time you get Southern. Make no mistake, I will be pulling for an Arkansas State blowout loss tomorrow. It just makes App's loss look better, and the Belt received enough credit for the way tonight's game was played.

No hard feelings?

You do realize that most of us are expecting you guys to pull against us tomorrow...right?

I think everyone in the SBC would have been tickled if App had won. i don't think any SBC rival's hatred has gotten to the point of the P5 conferences....where their conference mates hope for a loss.

A win is better for the Sun Belt Conference and it's members. To post on this board that you're hoping for an OOC loss for a conference mate is perplexing to someone that truly loves their alma mater. I suspect Wolfbird doesn't have one.

I can confirm a few things about WolfBird

1. He married way, way, way out of his league. (Ole Miss Grad)
2. He's not embracing the aging process well
3. He's had season tickets to AState football every single year since he graduated from here. His baseball attendance however is a little lacking.

He's also trolling the hell out of you guys, and you're allowing it to happen by responding every time.

Plenty of toughness shown by App tonight. I can never be too broken up when you guys lose, but I'd be lying if watching the last few plays didn't remind me of the UGA game last year.

I know that Tennessee's defense is tough, but App is going to have to do better than end-arounds to ensure a great season. Probably didn't help that the one confident-looking downfield pass Lamb threw got picked off.

All I know is that - after this close call - Arkansas State had better not go out and **** the bed on hits home turf tomorrow.

Well, do what we didn't do, and then talk some smack for a week. Then, after we go 2-1 after beating Miami, we can debate asterisks.

Our guys have to know they let one slip away. It was a close loss but there remain some questions that still need answers...Will our kicking game let us down? Do we have a receiving corps that can play the vertical game?

I also don't think because we played UT close, ODU will be a cakewalk. We really don't know what UT has. Nor do we really know how we respond to this loss. It was incredible effort, one to be proud of. However, our execution in several critical points of the game was lacking. We let far too many opportunities slip away.

ODU is a classic trap game. Mediocre G5 opponent at home the week after you nearly pulled off a huge upset, and the week before the biggest home game in your history.

At least your honest about it. It doesn't change the fact that psychologically there's something wrong with that. I know people like to use the phrase, "Do what makes you happy." But they don't really mean it if you can't be happy unless it's at somebody else's expense. You're a teenager right? Maybe you'll grow out of it.
