Re: To The Top Talk 9/8/19- Now presented by 4th St Bar!

Eat a meatloaf sandwich at 4th Street Bar and bring your mistress to The Courtyard by Marriott.........solid promo

Shouldn't have won......Coker got hurt.......no Quez.......no Mosley........it was hot in Starkville..........our budget is smaller......not one mention that the team wasn't prepared for that game....not one. Dancing around the soft criticism of the offensive play calling especially on 3rd down doesn't cover our poor preparation. Not one mention that Stevens didn't play half the game and we still gave them another 17 points......with their backup Shrader in charge who couldn't keep his helmet on.

Jason is correct......Troy is a must win. This is about either putting another nail in our program coffin against smaller programs like Troy continuing to pass us or...... keep them at an arms length for at least one more season. You have a new coaching staff at Troy against 4th year Hop. Lets see which one of Jeremy's coaches wins......

Amen, Jason.....why didn't Tate see the field? He would not have won the game but it was a wasted opportunity for game experience against a top defense on the road.

Bottom line.......Hops program continues to have zero identity......he has never established any identity on offense and we need to stop talking about how great the defense is. Alcorn moved on us and State moved on us. So throw out how great our defense is in 2019.

Re: To The Top Talk 9/8/19- Now presented by 4th St Bar!

Hop tried to buy an offensive identity with the Briles hire.
Didn't work out to well.
What bothers me is the lack of focus and lack of fire. Regardless of the budgets, no excuse for that.

I don't next necessarily endorse the statement, just thought it was a nice picture.

And I do like Larry Fedora, but honestly the last time I watched his UNC team I thought things looked a little stale. The stuff he runs has become pretty common these days

He’s at Texas right now making about what a manager at Enterprise Car Rental makes......if you could have him over Hop this season I can’t imagine you would stick with JHop.

I agree, you can’t go back but I’m so tired of not going forward I’m willing to try anything.......

I think Chip Lindsey would be a great fit, but he's already HC of a team that will probably beat USM.

Seems like the boat was missed on that guy. Can't imagine he makes that much money at Troy.

So Chip makes what Monken made, and Hop makes about a third less.

Sure seems like you get a lot of bang for your buck with that extra $300,000 or so.

He had a good DC and went to the ACC championship game in 2015.  The DC left, his defense played horrible the last 2 years he was there.... lost several games 41-19, 38-35, 40-37, 42-35, etc.

The teams lacked discipline, His last year, 9 players were suspended for 4 games for selling sneakers. 

According to NC fans, recruiting dropped off significantly the last 2-3 years.

The last nail was probably the bonehead comments he made about concussions, football and the future of the U.S. being related ....

Larry Fedora: “Our game is under attack ... I fear that the game will be pushed so far from what we know that we won’t recognize it 10 years from now. And if it does, our country will go down, too.”

Ended up with 45-43 record at UNC

Re: To The Top Talk 9/8/19- Now presented by 4th St Bar!

To be honest here, Chip has not coached a game against a D1 school. He also hasn’t recruited to maintain success yet, or at least he hasn’t proven he can. Some of you will take a leap at any passing skirt....hope your wives keep a close eye on you....

I can't remember the last USM football HC who had that on his resume on the way in. Maybe I'm forgetting someone.

That's just how it is at this level.

Fairly confident ELoss probably had a few FBS level losses from his 12-22 days at The Citadel......

let's review....

out of the last 4, 3 were oc's from okiefanokee st....only one outstayed their welcome...I'm pretty certain, Bobby, Jimbo, and the guy that lost to lswho as their coach didn't...I ain' lookin' it up...

the only disaster was a dippo who got his widdle overpriced dc feewin's canned after marsha and corp. butt hooter'd us...then
'they' found the buh-bye train...

it's a dayum certainty that's the longest 'name that tune' streak in D1 at this point...it once was consecutive 'muh chef bowl-r-appearances' in the kettle...

that is now meaningless too...

edit: I gave myself a deserved DOC

Re: To The Top Talk 9/8/19- Now presented by 4th St Bar!

EJ lost to Maryland 61-0, LSU 35-10, Georgia Tech 35-7, and scared a Wyoming team before losing 34-30 (breaking a 12-game Cowboy losing streak).

EJ did get The Citadel to .500 in his last season there, which is testimony to how much better young men listen to crusty old morons when they're inside a stockade guarded by military policemen.

Re: To The Top Talk 9/8/19- Now presented by 4th St Bar!

Listened to this one earlier this evening. Most of the things people here said about the game were touched on: awful kicking, questionable playcalling (especially on 3rd down), good ball movement much of the time but just no spark, etc.

One other thing that was mentioned on the podcast is that the team we saw was without Moseley and without Quez Watkins. Ultimately, other people did step up pretty well, but getting Watkins back will only help.

Is this podcast the replacement for the old coaches call in show that used to happen? Listening to it definitely feels like watching a Hopson game plan in action.
