APPALACHIAN STATE RUMORS

Appalachian State remembers the day it shocked Michigan, and the world

There are only so many ways in which a win against Furman could possibly serve as a blueprint for a victory over Michigan in Ann Arbor. For former Appalachian State defensive back Corey Lynch, the biggest play of arguably  the most stunning upset in the history of college football was simply a matter of repeating against the Wolverines what had worked to perfection against the Paladins...

The Day the Music Died

Mark Campbell/College Sporting NewsAppalachian State. Two words that will forever haunt anyone ever associated with Michigan Football. Just typing those words makes me want to chuck this laptop out the window, go outside, find it, pile all of the pieces up and set them on fire.I absolutely hate that Michigan is playing them again. Everyone hates it. I'd rather play Slippery Rock...

Appalachian State Mountaineers gets new uniforms

The Appalachian State Mountaineers unveiled their new uniforms for the 2013-2014 college football season, their final year in the FCS.  This was a great job by the athletic department that clearly took a “less is more” type approach.  They removed all of the ridiculous striping, and simplified the uniforms.  The Matte Black helmets with the block “A” on the helmet and...

Ever.  This foul shot by Appalachian State junior center Kevin Okam deserves paragraphs of one-word sentences emphasizing how awesome/pathetic/hilarious this free throw is.

Appalachian State's Brian Okam made worst free throw attempt ever (Video)

Appalachian State center Brian Okam attempted what can honestly be described as the worst looking free throw attempt ever by any NCAA college basketball player during Saturday's 70-64 loss to Western Carolina. It has to be seen to be believed, as Okam's foul shot, and we're not even sure we can even call it that, went straight up in the air and didn't even make...

Appalachian State’s Brian Okam shows off unarguably the worst free throw attempt ever

Welcome to Airball City, population that guy. It’s hard not to cut Appalachian State center Brian Okam’s some slack on his free throw shooting—he is 7-fooy tall junior and big men are notoriously bad shooters—but this attempt from the charity line is beyond horrible.  Airballing a free throw takes some serious lack of talent, but Okam’s attempt nearly goes straight up...

Appalachian State Player’s Free Throw Try Makes Shaquille O’Neal, Dwight Howard Look Good (Video)

This is not how to shoot a free throw. This is not even close to how to shoot a free throw. The next time you see Dwight Howard missing a dozen down the stretch or remember just how bad it was when Shaquille O’Neal strolled to the line, turn to this video and take solace. This Appalachian State player had a better chance of getting his ball into the rafters than getting it near...

The Appalachian State football program is courting Shawn Elliott, offensive line coach and run game coordinator for South Carolina, to be their next head coach. The first reaction in reading this news as it was first reported by TheBigSpur.com is ...."oh god, no."

Appalachian State wasn’t a bad team, but this is still one of the most infamous loses in Michigan’s history. Teams like Appalachian State  just didn’t come into the Big House and win, that was unheard of.
