New Elon Coach

3 weeks after Pete Lembo left Elon for Ball State, we hired a new head coach: Jason Swepson from NC State. He has been a running backs coach at NC State and Boston College for the past 11 years. Unfortunately, he has no head coaching or coordinator experience. I'm not too happy about the lack of exp...

Re: Georgia Southern Is My Pick to Win It All Next Year

The SoCon top to middle is going to be really good, and probably very competitive next year. GSU, ASU, WC will all be very good. Chatty should be a pretty good team. Furman has some talent coming back. Elon has talent coming back, but that was what everyone said about this year. I think these 6 team...

Re: Pete Lembo to be new coach at Ball State

There is some speculation that a replacement might be our DC/Assistant/LB Coach, Jay Bateman. He has previous coaching experience at Siena, and it would keep a lot of continuity, instead of bringing in a whole new staff and new system. Hopefully they get this sorted out soon.

Re: Pete Lembo to be new coach at Ball State

He made great strides in the Elon program over the last few years, and we were able to make our first ever playoff appearance in '09. He took the Elon program from being a really bad team to being a playoff team in 3 years. I hope we can get another good coach.

Re: Most Hated

My :twocents: !! Elon University hands down. Never seen a football team play so dirty. I can predict what is going to happen every year with them. If the QB is killing them on the field, expect that QB to have to leave the game with either a late or out of bounds hit, normally low around the ankles...

Re: Most Hated

I don't think we're affiliated with a religious group anymore. I agree with you about the hit on Pressley. From what I saw, it was borderline, and it could've been just playing hard or it could've been a bit late. I can't talk about the AE hit, because I wasn't there. IMO we have no right to talk u...

Re: Most Hated

Never seen Elon play but have heard from different directions that they play dirty. Aren't they a religious school? Yes. Baptist I believe, but don't hold me to it. They're former moniker was the "Fightin' Christians" (seriously). But I think they had to give that up due to potential nami...

Re: All SoCon Coaches Team Announced

One glaring mistake on that list...Coach of the Year. No offense to a fine coach, but this year's COY should have gone to either Huessman (sp?), Ayers or Monken. Personally, my vote would have gone to Ayers (just threw up a little saying that). I agree that it shouldn't have gone to Moore. He's a g...

Re: Another Year, Another SoCon POY from ASU

Congrats to DeAndre. He's a good ball player, but I hope he doesn't turn out like AE and beat Elon for the next 3 years. But I wish him the best of luck in his ASU career.

Re: The New NFL leader in Punt Return Average....

Mariani is a good player, but he needs to get traded to New England. Just imagine Marc Mariani, Wes Welker, Julian Edelman, and Danny Woodhead all on the field at the same time.

Not at all. A good FBS team at home vs. a brand new FCS team..... I'm expecting a bigger blowout than Pauly D's hair.
