I think we made the best improvement to the team in 5 years by hiring our new head coach. He has proven he can win. I agree with all those who say our OL and DL have to get better.

In order to get them better we have to get strength and conditioning in place. We also need a NUTRITION program. We dont have one. Not at all. Nothing. Can not expect guys that are 6'6 to be the right weight and have the strength they need to play against good teams if they dont eat right and work on strength right.

I really hope Ivey does not stop with a good head coach and finishes the rest of the pieces so we can enjoy the whole pie.
It is with great confidence that I say that Ivey is very clear that the right HC is only one part of the whole package needed for success. Probably all of us will want the pace of change to go faster, but it will happen.

As someone who's 6'4. I second this. It would be a full time job for me to get to college lineman weight with the right eating program. Putting the right kind of weight on big guys is not an easy task. Take a look at Texas over the last two years, there are plenty of stories of guys adding or losing 30 pounds in an offseason to be at their playing weights. And that was with the resources UT has.

I knew a guy in college who was trying to make an NFL roster as a 6'5 lineman. He was 290 but needed to get to 310 and was eating 6k calories a day to try to add 20 pounds over a year.

If we're going to win, it'll be an all out effort from coaching, recruiting, and development. Got to get a good nutrition program up and running.

Ryan said nutrition is at the top of his list 100%... He will get this part handled..

Congrats on your new HC. I know I said Carthel wasn't a good fit for ACU but he's a great fit for SFA. This league has gotten a lot tougher!!

Carthel thanks his smoking hot wife(his words), notes that she can outshoot him lol.

Carthel notes that he's "our football coach", mentions that it's going to take faculty, staff, students, alumni, and all of East Texas to build a winner.

Gives a shoutout to Armundo, the maintenance guy at TAMU-Commerce who maintained the facilities for football. Said Armundo believed from in him from day 1.


They spent a day in Nac on their way to interview, stopped on campus and talked to students. Went to Walmart/Clear Springs.

Mentions that he and Jeremiah Trotter have a history, he's disliked him for 23 years. In 1995, Jeremiah beat him in Discus at the state meet. Says he forgives Jeremiah now.

He channeled his inner Ricky Bobby. I was waiting to hear Walker & Texas Ranger for kid names after he introduced his wife.

His 2017 team won a national championship but also set a school record for GPA for the football team. Says they'll be champions on and off the field.

Mentions that they'll be involved in community service,notes that the team stopped in Port Aransas on the day after the Kingsville game and did over 400 hours of community service to help the community out.

Any skepticism I had is gone. Very impressed with his presser and like his approach. Winning starts off the field and grows from there. I think he is going to be very good.

Watching the presser, I got the feeling from both he and Ivey that a national championship truly is the goal. Not occasionally making the playoffs, but much like basketball, setting the playoffs as the minimum expectation on any given year.

There's no reason an NDSU level program can't be built in the state of Texas, so why shouldn't we be the ones to build it?

I too am optimistic but realistic .... there are two reasons we would struggle to MAINTAIN a NDSU type program over the long haul.

1). We are in Texas. FBS is the only level that counts. People I know that graduated from Texas A&M still consider us a D2 school not because of the 16 D1 sports we sponsor but because of the ONE D1aa program we sponsor. 2). $$$$$. We are woefully underfunded. We can win and be competitive and I expect us to win championships but sustained success. I'm skeptical.

Ivey said in his introductory press conference that his goal is to make SFA the best mid-major in the country. We are either already there or close to being so in other sports and it can happen with FB as well (see '88, '89, '93, '95, etc).

I think more than a few alums and boosters are ready to jump on board if given a good reason to do so. If we put a winning product both on and off the field the $$$ will start to come in.

Sorry but I have to go and run through a brick wall now after watching that presser . . . . .

I sure hope he brings what he says. Hopefully our rivalry will mean one of us is heading to a national championship in the future. Congratulations on a great coach. I know this sounds crazy coming from a Bearkat, I am tried of beating the crap out of y'all. Now let's have some Texas football.
