The 2007-08 season was, no doubt, the year of Curry.
The baby-faced assassin led Davidson to being one three-pointer shy of a Final Four berth. He had a smooth stroke. A winning smile. And, gosh golly darn, an All-American attitude.
When it came time for the SoCon to crown its top male athlete of the year, it was understandable that the roundball star won out over App State’s everything AE. Sure, the Wolverine Killer had his own headlines and . . . → Read More: SoCon is so off its rocker
App track star Shea Snow has a big jump planned tomorrow. It’s in Greensboro. And she’s ready.
The SoCon champion pole vaulter is taking with her plenty of determination, a set goal and high optimism.
Oh, and a bum leg. No worries. Cause, as a senior, SHE AIN’T GOT TIME TO BLEED!
Snow, from Boonville and a former state champion at Starmount, endured pain from a stress fracture throughout the outdoor track-and-field season and discovered three weeks ago . . . → Read More: Snow quitting in this App
First App State. Next year Delaware State. Now this – “UMass football will play before the largest crowd ever to watch a UMass sporting event as the Minutemen have agreed to play at the University of Michigan on Sept. 18, 2010.” Of course, by law, App State is mentioned in the last paragraph of the story.
TIME FOR A NEW T It’s spring. It’s getting warmer. And it’s time for a new App State t-shirt! This ultra cotton heavyweight T needs to be in your collection. And you can find it in the AppFan store. . . . → Read More: AppFan store special
Moore exertion on tape! We have no idea what’s going on, but it sounds tremendous. We think.
AGS says we’re No. 2. Another poll is out.
Kelly becomes a coach. South Brunswick High now led by an App.
Always good for a salute. Raise ‘em high!
Another cool slideshow. Too bad it was a season ender.
Prince’s revenge. Maybe it wasn’t planned. Or maybe it was.
Look who’s in big demand. They haven’t played a game yet, and already . . . → Read More: APP-prope links
It’s standard operating procedure. Whenever one attempts to discuss big-time college sports student-athlete competition in terms of money, they rarely know what they’re talking about.
Cite one database of financial statements and someone inevitable calls Barbara Streisand. They point to another database which shows different data. Someone else argues that you can’t trust either cause they each have different standards. And there’s also the accusation that, well, who cares really? LET’S PLAY SOME FOOTBALL!!!!!
Valid points all. And it . . . → Read More: Not even Congress knows where the money goes
FINALLY, someone posted this online. Many thanks.
It’s hard enough to beat a good team once in the postseason. But twice? Within three days?
Well, that’s pretty tough. And, sadly, that’s what happened today.
The Citadel pitcher Matt Crim tossed a complete game, allowing only three runs, as the No. 3 seed Bulldogs knocked off No. 6 seed Appalachian State, 5-3, in an elimination game at the 2009 Southern Conference Baseball Championship at Fluor Field.
The Mountaineers had perhaps their best chance to take the lead . . . → Read More: And another App State season ends too soon
Beware anytime you cross a Mountaineer – “Kansas State is suing to cancel a secret deal that would require the school to pay former football coach Ron Prince $3.2 million in three payments between 2015 and 2020.” The punchline? This “secret” deal was just discovered two weeks ago.
The Stink just got by App State, 6-5, in the second round of the SoCon baseball tourney. Two home runs helped do them in. Pollard’s Pounders now go to the losers’ bracket and a big rematch – El Cid, uh-gin. We’re not sure our nerves can take another pitchers’ duel. Game begins at 3.
Gotta say, this SoCon slideshow from yesterday’s App State-El Cid game is tremendous! Seriously. These are some of the best photos we’ve ever seen on the site! Go see them. NOW! /high fives SoCon
Oh, and here’s one of the heros from yesterday. Outfielder Rand Smith had the big RBI double in the ninth with App up 2-1. He finished 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs.

Score tied 1-1 going into the ninth. Then App State finally found its bats*.
Can we get a “give ‘em hell!?!”
The Mountaineers led off the ninth inning with catcher Chris Trappy reaching on an error by second baseman Bryan Altman, who made a diving stop on a hard-hit ball but threw errantly to first. Jason Wallace, pinch running for Trappy, reached third on a Jeremy Dowdy double down the left field line, and a Jerod Faggert ground out . . . → Read More: Apps keep on rolling into second round
