F RB Andy Riazzi (who is a load of a RB at 6'2" 195) is now officially listed on the roster (#12) as well as Navy transfer F DL Robbie Armstrong (#91). Preseason is just around the corner.......

About the size of his coach when he played HB as a sophomore and junior.

The Fall knows what price Summer paid.
Good to hear from you, T19. Hope to see you come September.
Is everyone expected to be recovered from all our maladies and ailments of 2015?

For what it's worth, MaxPreps has Armstrong listed as #3 in his position in GA.

I sure hope everyone has recovered. On one of the spring scrimmage videos MA said we had 19 surgeries throughout the year. That seems like a lot of surgery. Hope all of the injured players are ready. For a while it looked like Cole Higbie's career was over. But he is still on the roster. I hope that means he is healthy and ready to play. Don't know when fall practice starts but it will be here before we know it. And I am looking forward to reading the Media Guide when it comes out.

Good to hear from you T19. Hard to suppress enthusiasm, but it will be about the focus and the work.

Tips cap.........pours Bourbon.

SALUDE to my Terrier Brothers and Sisters.

As I comb through highlights and plays from the last couple of years and envision this season with a veteran team that's been through the fire, that's dealt with adversity, that's been written off by media, spectators and fans alike. Something begins to well up inside me as I realize that we are the "UNDERDOGS".....small school, small enrollment, rigorous academics, financial challenges for the staff.....and yet I have this feeling of pride thinking about watching these young men run out on that field prepared to do battle and represent this wonderful school. Ive gotten to know a lot of these young men and truly cannot wait for their day in the sun, and I sincerely believe it is this year, that something truly special happens for this school, program, staff, fans, and these great young men. The work is being put in.....the sacrifice that can yield results, is being paid. It is the summer and yet here I am chomping at the bit to get after Tennessee Tech.

Everything I read about the SoCon and FCS, has Wofford mentioned as a Dark Horse or one of the favorites. I think that they are getting that feeling as well. Talk to the staff they know what they have.....they just need to execute and have a break or 2 fall their way instead of all the breaks going the other way this season. It's coming boys and girls. Just you watch and see

Ah yes, sounds good. Just like my "game day" bottle of Woodford with a Terrier head sticker on it. Can't wait to crack it open again this fall.

Rumor has it here in the "swampland" that quite a few players are headed back to campus early this year to get in some extra stimulation prior to fall practice. If any of you "locals" get a chance to scope out the area, I'd love to hear about it. Got a good feeling about this season!

Thanks 19 for the videos and the info. Hope your son has a great year of which he is very capable. Looking forward to this year. I am tempted to make all sorts of predictions but I don't want to jinx our team. So I am going to keep my mouth shut for right now.

GO TERRIERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He's absolutely ready. He's really gotten after it this summer and is of the mindset to come back and help lead. I think we are on the verge of something special. I can't wait for the year to get going. We are coming down there in a couple weeks to catch up with everyone.

First time posting, but I've been following you all for 2+ years now. Great stuff 19; loved the video. In response to mudrat, my son (62) has been on campus for a week and I know he's got good company. I have high expectations for this season and I know I'm not alone.

Mud, BT, and 19T, thanks for your inputs. Receiver and OL appear to be two areas where we have talent, experience, and depth, but only time will tell. And team leadership may make all the difference.
