    it sounds like this bye week has given them a chance to get back to fundamentals and get back to basic football, which is good. hopefully the two losses will stick on their minds like they have stuck with us and they will come out playing powerhouse football like we all know they can.

    One of the basics I hope they cover: Ben Jorden was a beast last year…get him the ball!

    take this Saturday off to watch some football then GIVE 'EM HELL next weekend! SoCon will be ours again this year.

    I recommend watching the ECU v. UNC game. UPSET ALERT! UNC has injuries on the O-Line and at WR. Could be a lot of ARRRGH-ing scoring in the game for ECU.

    It has been determined by myself and others who attended the ASU v. ECU game that the Pirate fans have found ways to use the term ARGH as a Noun, Pronoun, Verb, Adjective…and all other parts of speech. It is impressive. When can get us one of them there catch-phrases to use?

    Back to important stuff. Here is my proposed schedule for our team this weekend:

    Friday- light practice
    Saturday- gather at new facilities and watch football. Florida v. Tennessee, UNC v. ECU…etc.
    Sunday- Enjoy a nice day to hang around and enjoy life *****WALK-ONS MUST CUT ARMANT'S GRASS THIS DAY*****

    MONDAY- Get back to being the most feared program in the FCS!

    I think the defensive coaches should cut AE's grass–and I don't mean the cannabis variety.

    why wont some one ask him why devin radford doesnt get in the game?

  8. Joe

    Why are you so stuck on Radford? His injury has caused him to lose a step of quickness and speed.. because of this, he is now behind Moore and Baker.. potential Welton as well..

    stuck on it b/c no one would answer me and couldnt find an injury report…..i think it's not too out of the question to wonder why our top rusher (besdies edwards) and a major x factor of last year have been no where to be seen or heard of…….thanks for the answer though Jospeh

    Sorry, i thought you were the same person who has been harping on it since the ECU game and had been answered several times… Did not mean to offend you.. that is a very valid reason to wonder — thought you already had the answer

    Our top running back is Devon Moore.

    To expound on that, Devin Radford and Robert Welton are lower on the depth chart than Moore and Baker. Both Moore and Baker have played very well so far this season.

    On top of that, our entire offense is playing well. There is no reason to ask to see the 3rd string at any position at this time on that side of the ball.

    No question. He needs to stay healthy all season.

    I have the impression that Welton's effort doesn't always equal his talent and potential.

    i meant from last year clayton…easy guys eaaasy….just after watching the "US" video whcih had features on both radford and welton, and welton and both were impact guys on O last year I was just wondering where they were. I understand moore is back which will contribute to welton not getting in but i was just wondering anything else…thanks for the heads up on injury on radford though..

    on top of that I do like Baker in there…great passion and intensity about his game..

    I'm with you, Pkglot! Radford is a great back. If he lost a step due to last year's injury, that means he's only 9 steps faster than anyone on the field. I like Moore, Welton, and Ced, but Radford can flat out RUN!

    It has been said Tavaris Washington is the fastest man on the team…and we do not see him playing either. (Grant it, I didn't see the game Saturday thanks to a freaking wedding), but he played a little in the 4th qtr of ECU. Didn't do anything, but he played. Why don't we use him to run a reverse or a slant (like Dexter). Get him the ball and see what he can do with his speed! I'm not saying make him a starter….we have great WR, but try to use him in a few plays!

    I hate to see us waste a whole year and underutilize some of our talented players (Radford, Welton, Cadet, etc.). Put them on special teams at least…if not the DEFENSE.

    Football…not a track meet.

    I want Moore and Baker to do 99% of the non AE running. It works and they are much better than anyone else. If Moore had not been hurt, then Radford and Welton would not have played much last year. When we start tackling again, then I will worry what our 3rd and 4th string guys are doing on the O side of the ball.

    Washington did play last Sat. Caught at least one pass that I remember. Tackling? Do we even know what that means anymore?

    I think we define it as sticking an arm out as a running back goes by and then dancing and turning cartwheels 15 yards later when he's brought down in the secondary. BTW, not to inject politics into this, but there's an interesting column by David Brooks in yesterday's Charlotte Observer about our modern chest-thumping culture; mentions Michael Jordan's self-aggrandizing Hall of Fame speech, Kanye West, and Joe "You Lie" Wilson all as examples of a rude narcissistic America.

    So Brooks gave Serena Williams a pass?

    Even so, he's the kind of conservative columnist I like–sensible, reasonable, analytical, factual(!), and not much of a screamer.

    I dont understand using Michael Jordan's Hall of Fame speech.. there were SEVERAL times he said he could not have done it without the players he had around him.. I counted at least 3 times he said it, and I wasn't paying that much attention.. I thought it was a very classy acceptance speech
