  1. Love James Bates. Love his stories. Whoda’ thunk a Linebacker could be so artistic and entertaining.

    Pat, please, please, please stop saying “Appy State”. It literally make me cringe every time. Either that, or please stop talking about them on your podcast. Maybe at the beginning of the podcast you can give a warning, “Today I will bring up Appalachian State in my discussions.” It is APP STATE. Thats it. There is no ‘y’ at the end of it. Nor an ‘ie”. Not there. It just is not said that way. APP f’in State.

    Oh, BTW, I might be more excited about the upcoming BB season than I was FB. I will be in Charleston rooting on my Gators in November. I am so looking forward to BB season. I live in the center of the College BB Universe so it is really nice when my Gators are relevant. Can’t believe we have had such awesome coaches now for 20+ years! Go Gators!
