They’ve got … hiiiiiiigh hopes!
Rams second pick Brian Quick. Rams WR coach Ray Sherman predicts that Quick will become the next Terrell Owens…a big receiver who came from a small school
There are detractors.
I’m sorry, but the Rams’ choice of Brian Quick at the top of the second round reminds me of another wide receiver they took there four years earlier — Donnie Avery — and we know what happened there. OK, so they’re different, but . . . → Read More: Rams introduce their newest rookie class
With the 33rd pick, Brian Quick is taken by the St. Louis Rams!
Appalachian State’s Brian Quick, chosen 33rd overall as the 2012 NFL draft entered its second round, fits the profile. He’s 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds — more in line with wide receivers selected among the top few overall choices. Quick lasted until the 33rd pick because he’s raw, from a smaller program and lacking elite speed.

SoCon leading App State is at SoCon bottom feeding Wofford this weekend for a three-game series. Two of the dog’s five wins came against Elon, which handed App State two of its five losses. Which means, um, we have no idea. But Wofford has won six of its last 11 games, so it’s kinda finding its groove. Ryan Arrowood and his 7-0 record start tonight.
Gone – “One App State football player was found responsible for sex offenses and one was found not responsible after new hearings were ordered on allegations they’d each raped a woman, according to the woman and university documents.” On the other case, “Four of the five men were found responsible for all the charges against them.”
The NFL Draft opened last night with its overwrought first round (FYI – Twitter was announcing picks a few minutes before the moving picture machine)
Here’s a brief recap of Day 1. To its author, we submit a humble bow. Brah. Voh.
Tonight is round two. And, you know, maybe … just maybe … we might hear a name we all know and love.
Now that the process is nearly over, Quick said he’ll be glad to learn his . . . → Read More: Quick up for grabs
App State remains in first place in the league. RF Tyler Tewell is the SoCon Baseball Player of the Week – “Tewell batted .500 (6-for-12) and hit safely in all three games last week as the Mountaineers swept Furman. Half of his six hits went for extra bases (double, triple and home run), good for 1.000 slugging percentage. His two hits in the finale included an RBI triple and his first-career grand . . . → Read More: App State still in first place
An App State professor teaching an intro to sociology course went off on athletes one day. A student complained, so she did what any professor would do – showed a documentary on porn. Students complained, and the prof has been put on leave. And, of course, is suing – “”Part of the learning process for some students may be moving past the discomfort they feel when faced with core concepts in an introductory-level sociology class,” Price counters.” We are . . . → Read More: Discomfort for thee, not for she
As some of you may know, App State recently completed a study which recommended the football program make like the Jeffersons. The study was made public.
It’s a slam dunk, see? Any questions?
At some point a group of App State faculty raised their hands. They submitted some questions. The athletic department responded. The Q&A is online.
To almost every question the athletic department basically repeated one answer – didn’t you read the study? It’s in the study!

The random, meaningless, guessing continues. From that creepy talking head – “ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. took a stab at a three-round mock draft. Chicago Bears. 2. App State WR Brian Quick. Quick …… would offer a different skill set than what the Bears have been using in recent years. ” Meanwhile, here’s what a former coach thinks – “That’s why the only other receiver Parcells has on his draft board is Appalachian State’s Brian Quick, whom he . . . → Read More: On board with the Quickness
A few days ago one of the App State assistant foozball coaches went to the twitters and put out this pic.
Welcome to the University of Oregon at Boone!
Reaction seems mixed. Some think it’s a fan-made image. Or a new NIKE … /giggle … “combat” uniform (We’re sure our men and women overseas get a giggle out of that name too.)

Ha! Good times. App State at the Stink all weekend. They need to show some spark, after Tuesday’s shocking unpleasantness. Saturday’s game two takes place after something called a … /reads from release … suh-pring game .. whatever that is. Something to do with the colors blue and white. Sounds weird. /sarcasm
The NFL draft is several days away, which means more poking and probing by every team to about every prospect that has a hope to hopefully get a job.
The Quickness is one such in-demand interview.
And when it comes to mock drafts, his name is being thrown around more than a Catamount defensive end. Cause that’s all the days leading up to the big day are – throwing glitter at flypaper and pretending you know exactly where . . . → Read More: It’s hard out here for a possible draft pick
