App State Chancellor's Take on Football

Just saw an interview on the news as they prepare for their 2nd straight title game for 1AA Football.

He said that enrollment is way up and that applications are way up including double the number of applications from their under represented populations. This was all in the context of him talking about the impact of the team’s success on the university.

Maybe Chancellor Pea**** should talk with DuBois.

Then again, this news is nothing surprising. Common sense really. But we will pay 1/4 million bucks $$$ to a firm in Iowa to feed us some crap on branding.

Are we having problems with enrolment?

[QUOTE=pip;204651]Are we having problems with enrolment?[/QUOTE]

Yeah. All we’re getting are applicatons from pimply-faced, drunk losers who spend most of their time playing video games and fantasy sports, or on sports message boards, or “entertaining themselves” on porn sites. :wink:

Tell him how much you appreciate what you saw.

That would really get under Dubois skin.

I don’t think football is going to change that, especially the drunk loser part. It would be just another opportunity to do just that. It would break them away from the Jenna Jameson avi’s for awhile though. :wow: :mallet:

When applications go up you get better quality, it is common sense.
A university that has a successful football program will increase exposure to the school and interest from prospective students. Particularly, out of state students, which bring a higher dollar.

This is all common sense, except to Judy and Dr. Phil.

App State’s Chancellor

I emailed App’s chancellor, here is the email and response. I am suprised that he did not defend DuBois at all. He didn’t even mention anything negative about football. I encourage each of you to send him and email.

My Email:
[COLOR=Blue]I am an alumni of UNC Charlotte. As you are well aware we do not have a football team. I saw you on TV (in HD on ESPN) and I really appreciated the things you said for the program you have in Boone. I was happy to hear from a Chancellor that actually was in tune with his students and saw the benefits that an athletic program can have for students and alumni. I wish that, that was something that we had at UNC Charlotte, unfortunately we do not and probably haven’t had for a while.

I wish you the best of luck in the future, and of course next Saturday. App is a great school, and I had a number of friends that graduated from there. Charlotte had engineering, otherwise App would have been my choice.

Go Niners, and Go Mountaineers!

[/B][/COLOR][/COLOR][COLOR=Red]Thanks for your kind words. I am proud of Appalachian State. These are
exciting times on this campus as our Mountaineers will go for 2 on
Friday evening. Let there be no doubt about it, I enjoy Game Days at
Appalachian. Perhaps you can join us next year for a football game, my
guest, and share your enthusiasm for football at the Rock. We would be
honored to have you join us and cheer for the Mountaineers. You will
certainly be welcome. Just let me know.

I am confident that UNC Charlotte prepared you well for your
profession. UNCC is a great university and means a great deal to the
UNC System.

Again, I thank you for your kind and encouraging words. On Friday, pull
for the Appalachian State Mountaineers!

Yes – you got it right. Go Niners and Go Apps!

Can we go as a NNN group and tailgate with Chancellor Peaocck?

Wow ID, looks like you could be sitting in a suite with the Chancellor there next season.

Can we go as a NNN group and tailgate with Chancellor Peaocck?

For some reason, this chancellor sounds more intelligent by using simple, to-the-point language than our chancellor - who enjoys his “word of the day” thesaurus daily calender a bit too much and tries to talk you into circles.

That’s quite an offer he gave, too! Is he hooking you up with some good seats?

I doubt he means much by it. I guess i need to just stay in touch with him and seriously try to go. The least i would like is to get a group of us and have lunch with him on gameday then go watch a football game.

Get a group of you wearing Niner green and supporting App football on the news. hmmmmh:ponder:

niners supporting other schools football programs is not news, unfortunately.

Heck, I’m going to Chatanooga on Friday to pull for App… I’ll tell the Chancellor all you guys said “Hallooo!” Wife graduated from ASU, and my best friend has two degrees from there. Last App game I saw in person was the 2005 Championship game, so maybe I am good luck for them…

Chancellor sounds like a quality individual…

ID count me in and I will bring DuBois with me. We can all have breakfast at Daniel Boone and discuss the impact of football on a university.

That Daniel Boone restaurant is amazing. I went there once when I was a kid… the only time I’ve ever been to Boone.

That’s funny I haven’t thought about that in years.

The [URL=http://www.danlbooneinn.com/][B]Dan’l Boone Inn[/B][/URL] is worth the trip. My family used to stop and eat there at least twice yearly on trips to the mountains. It’s been ages since I’ve been though, anyone up for a road trip?
