Without sounding sexiest I can tell you one undeniable fact. The vast majority of successful softball programs from HS, to ASA Gold travel ball, to JUCO to the top college programs all have male head coaches. There are successful female coaches but far, far less than male coaches. Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Arizona, Tennessee, ULL, Arizona St. And on have male head coaches. We have tried the female route twice, time for a male coach with a baseball background like the top programs have. Even Valdosta St a D2 power has a male HC from the baseball ranks. It can't hurt to try, status quoa isn't working jmo. I was around high level travel ball for six years and never seen a top program that wasn't coached by a man. There are good female coaches but the odds of finding one are not as good. Facts don't lie.
We get it: male, from Florida, over 50, and one of your friends.
I don't know who could be disappointed! Awesome to be in the conversation, even if only for a brief while. Great for the program and our university. I'm not a huge basketball fan but you know I'll be watching Friday night! Go Trojans!
The crowd that wants Cunningham gone... they are disappointed.
We need to stay in the Sun Belt Conference and continue to build it up to the Conference we want it too be. We were the first team to win 5 Conference Championships and now the first team to be ranked in the AP 25. Not only are we getting National Attention, so does the Conference. What a great day to be a Troy Trojan Fan.
Watch how those teams who left want to come back.
Is that even a question? No matter what fans may want, I don't think a conference change is a possibility right now.
Bought two parking passes and one hour before game time I could not park in my LOT.1/3 of the vehicles in that Lot had no pass hanging from window....yeah,I was hacked and looked at every vehicle.My elderly father=in -law hoofed the extra 200 yards so no biggie.
Not sure how a barricaded lot is 1/3 full of non permited vehicles....hopefully it was recruits then I don't mine .....they can park in the endzone if it was me!
Was it the National Guard Armory lot or was it one of Lots 1-5?
Considering this is the view from my office window, the Camellia Bowl would definitely be the easiest for me to go to....but how boring! I'd practically feel like I was going to work driving to it! lol
We could have a big Troy party down at the Alley though! Personally, I am hoping for NoLa.
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - WSFA 12 News has learned Montgomery will be home to a new college football showdown starting in 2017. The game will be called the Montgomery Kickoff Classic and is set for Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017 at historic Cramton Bowl.
The classic will feature two Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) powerhouse programs in Jacksonville State and Tennessee-Chattanooga. The game will be aired on ESPN...
When the Commish was here for the NMSU game, he said Troy would be in the East division with GSU, GSU, App. St and Coastal Carolina... welcome to the SEC West of the Sun Belt!
Not a fan of these divisions and championship game. Sun Belt will have 10 teams which means you would play 9 conference games, 1 FCS game and two money games. By playing all teams you earn it on the field. Instead you will have arguably the 5 best teams in the same division. So say Ark St or USA choses to not play App St and GA Southern and get to the championship game while Troy has to play both. Two sides to this for sure.
Not sure we will play 9 conference games during regular season, is that change coming? Also, the conference would likely choose the conference schedule. If we play 8 conference games, I don't think they would allow any team to choose the 1 team they would not play. I am sure consideration would be given for rivalries when they rotate the schedules though.
