@vox I got a question for Coach.

Could he take a minute to talk about how the 5th year “program” so to speak has changed over the years?

Seems like in the 90’s guys jumped at the opportunity. Now it’s not an automatic.

Maybe just some garden variety cases on what goes into players decision making when it comes to staying for a 5th year, and graduate school or electing to entering the workforce, military, and so on.

Big Gun sometimes it is a very individual decision.  Also I am aware that many times a player is not offered a scholarship for th 5th year.  It will be interesting to see what Coach Thompson has to say.

We have quite a bit of freshman and sophomores tying up scholarships, so i wonder what the 5th year and freshman class next year will look like.

Ask him how many guys on this roster have a legit shot to play in the NFL.

I can think of 3 who have a chance, which may be the most on one el
Cid team ever .

Was the apparent TD pass at ETSU actually reviewed? Media reports said it was, although it was never announced as under review and the referee never went to the headset. It was a 4 point call. Yet, they reviewed a pass that gained one foot and the final ETSU play that clearly was a yard shy of the end zone.

How about a tight end pass as a tribute to the late Coach Don Powers?

Two quotes providing even more reasons to support, and be a fan of, Coach Thompson:

"There’s nothing worse, and that I hate more, than kicking a field goal from the 6 yard line. I mean...come on.”

"I don’t enjoy NFL games. It’s not the game that I know. There’s nothing that really correlates to what we do. You have to sit there, and take it, and watch it as an entertainment value…"

But he did say he loves watching the RAVENS as we run the ball...  in fact they could use a blocking WR like we produce... WEBB would look good in the Purple and Black.
