    I’d bet it all. But that’s me. I’m an aggressive gambler. Mr. Vegas
  2. Interesting, we won both halves by 8 points. In a game where Timberlake struggled to score, I thought the heroes were Sylla and Russell. Was particularly impressed with Russell’s 3-point stroke. Nice to see Conway drain 2 3’s. From where I was seated, Gibson was moving very gingerly and didn’t look like someone who’s going to be playing anytime soon. Hopefully, my assessment is wrong. This is not your father’s Coppin. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they win the MEAC. Holding Sessoms to under 20 was quite the accomplishment. Man would I love to have him on our squad

    Sadly, I think loyalty, unless it’s loyalty to a bigger paycheck, has largely gone the way of rotary dialing and beta & vhs, when it comes to college sports. And that’s coaches and players

    New coach will have to identify which ones he wants to keep, and hopefully sell them on staying. I hope Perkins, the WR, stays. The LB, Woods. Maybe a few on the O-Line.

    I have no problem with being a stepping stone. That would mean someone made us very successful before moving on, which would make us an attractive landing spot for the next coach. Wash, rinse, repeat. What programs, other than a select few, aren’t stepping stones?🤔

    Almost without exception, coaches are hired to be fired. Even legendary ones. The trajectory of the program has been heading downward for years. 7-win ceiling; 1 playoff appearance, ending in an unceremonious drubbing at the hands of Duquesne; over reliance on transfers; a revolving door of mostly mediocre QB play; an often boring style of play; attendance declining every game this season after the home opener. These aren’t low blows, just the facts

    What “we” wanted (those of us who advocated for a change) was a reset; a coach who can hopefully make us a consistent playoff team, which necessarily means a coach who can do a better job bringing in quality QB’s and who’s ceiling isn’t 6-5 or maybe, in a good year, 7-4. Surely no one believes that the 10 or so of us who post here regularly had even the slightest role in convincing the new A.D. to make this decision. Are there people who post here (including me) who have been negative about the job Ambrose has been doing? Of course, and with good cause, I would say, given his record from 2014-2022. Does this diminish the storybook championship game run? Of course not, but there comes a point where past accomplishments begin to fade in the rear view mirror and current and future results become the relevant consideration. More than 1 thing can be true at the same time-we can support the program (and you’re right, we all take a backseat to you in that regard) and still want new leadership and a new vision to hopefully return the program to relevance, as opposed to the rut we’ve been in since Frisco.

    Well said and you point out the elephant in the room, which was his lackluster record of bringing in/developing quality QB’s. His accomplishments are greatly appreciated and best wishes to him going forward

    I’m sure our Lyndon told Eigenbrot he will not seek or accept the job on a full time basis (bonus points to anyone who knows in what context the “real” LBJ made this statement).

    It’s the right move and affirms in my mind that the new A.D. has autonomy to make these type of decisions without interference from the university president. I don’t take any joy in seeing someone lose their job, but I suspect Ambrose will not have much difficulty transitioning to his next job, whether it’s as a head coach or not. The bottom line is he wasn’t achieving the results necessary to keep his job. He deserves credit for the championship game run, but the results since the end of that season speak for themselves. I’m excited for the next chapter
  12. Whether he stays or goes, would it not make sense to make the decision promptly, so that whoever the coach is going to be can hit the recruiting trail? I can’t imagine Ambrose has any recruiting cred at the moment, as a lame duck
  13. Happy for the players, especially the seniors. You play who’s on the schedule. The fact that the winning streak was against bad teams (well, Villanova is mediocre, not bad) isn’t the fault of our players. I feel the program is at a crossroads-do the comfortable thing and rationalize giving RA a new contract, because he finished the season on a winning streak, thus continuing on the cycle of mediocrity we’ve been in since the 2014 season, or do something bold and roll the dice 🎲 on a new coach, in the process making a statement that we’re shooting for something better than a 6-5 or 7-4 ceiling
  14. Next game vs Coppin will feature NT, avg 21 ppg, vs Sam Sessoms, avg 23ppg for Coppin, by way of Binghampton and Penn State

    Typical coachspeak. I think they all do it. It would be refreshing for a change if a coach, leading up to a game, said something like “yeah, our opponent this week really sucks & we’re going to beat them by at least 50 points.”😆
