    Game Day love from Bill Murray. BTW I was at App when he came to town. A friend and I snuck a bottle into the game. We saw Bill walking around and offered him a shot. He said about time someone offered him a drink. He took a long swig and then we passed it around. He took one more and then he signed the bottle. My friend still has that bottle.

    On behalf of the football team from Appalachian State I'd like to extend my deepest apologies for the crap you had to see today.
    That was the worst effort I've seen from an App State team in a long time. We were sloppy last week but won anyway. This week we flat out stunk. They beat us in all facets of the game. Our special teams are back to being stress inducing nightmares.
    That is the last thing that got fixed before we went on our 10+ year great run.

    It is a little early to panic, but our time may be ending. We lost 2 head coaches in 2 years and they each took about half the staff with them. I am starting to think this new staff isn't up to the job. Our offense is supposed to be deeper, faster and more skilled than it has ever been. I don't see it. The defense was supposed to be rebuilding and outside of the linebacker play has been very solid. We don't lose often but it is almost never because we can't score. We can't score...Time for panic.

    A great win over the Campbell Camels (1-AA) 52-21. Their last score came against out third team defense. It was a great win because half our team and coaching staff was out on Covid quarantine. We only had one running back and one wide receiver of regulars available. Our QB was able to play.
    We had guys in there that have never played before and a third string linebacker played running.
    I can't believe they decided to play this one but we won.

    Up next is the undefeated Ragin' Cajun Team from Lafayette. Game is a national game on ESPN family (ESPN2 I think) in Boone next Wednesday night. They have never beaten us and this may be their year. We didn't look good before the Covid took away over half of our skill players and they look great. I hope our guys clear quarantine and can practice at least a little before the game. If not we will have linebackers playing running back, a true freshmen tight end playing wide receiver and a couple of other freshman sprinkled around every where else.
