Well-known member
The 15th Annual GreatAppSt Countdown starts right now!!!
Yes, It's that time again girls n' boys WOOOOT!!! xnodx

Fall weather, outdoor culinary delights, good spirits, ;-} and gatherings of friends young and old will soon be here.

I know that if you're here reading this (again)you're looking forward to football with as much enthusiasm and anticipation as I am.
15 Years and still going strong, I'd like to thank all the fans from many teams and different boards, who have joined in and expressed their enjoyment of the countdown over many years. Again, it has been and is still a great pleasure for me to do the countdown for Y'all.


Now on to the same ol' yearly intro!!!!

The G.A.S. Countdown is NOT just the often used, automatic backwards clock ticker (when I started this there were no others of any kind that I could find and trust me I looked). This countdown IS a work of passion for the enjoyment of others and myself. The G.A.S. countdown IS the often IMITATED but never duplicated ORIGINAL (like Carolina BBQ) build up to a new season of thrills, chills, and spills. Fun for ALL and all are welcomed along for the, Worlds Best Countdown! :D

THE RULES
1.) This is the G.A.S. Countdown.


2.) Only full 24 hr Calendar days
left before 12:01am of gameday are counted. The day before gameday is counted at Zero, as there are only hours are left then.


3.) I countdown to Gameday, the beginning of what my heart is passionate for, the start of APPALACHIAN STATE UNIVERSITIES FOOTBALL SEASON!!!


4.) Barring catastophic events the day will be posted this is my pledge. Please be patient it may be later in the evening before I have a chance to post.


5.) Follow up posts with player info from other I-AA teams are encouraged and warmly welcomed. I love reading about players bios and stats from the competion.


6.) I understand that some teams start their season before ASU and some after, this is the case every year. I assume most AGS posters have or are working on some level of higher education. So if your team has one of the other start dates just subtract or add those days in your head for your own count. Please just post your player with the rest of us, your more than welcome to do so without starting a new thread with a different count. It clutters the board. Please post follow-ups and make-up posts to the current days thread only, it's very confusing to look at the board and 86 days is ahead of 80 days which is ahead 79 days. Even if you miss a day or several days of posting players, just add it to the current days thread, we'll more than understand . Thanks Y'alls help for a smooth countdown will be much appreciated.

On with the show. :nod:

ENJOY!!

ERIC aka G.A.S.

The traditional hundreth day tribute to the coaches of the game, and players not yet and may never be assigned #'Sxbowx

ASU :notworthy: :thumb: :notworthy: Coach Scott Satterfield :notworthy: :nod: :notworthy:

UXKJIMDKZIELXUU.20120716204129.jpg


Scott Satterfield, who has spent 17 of the last 22 years at Appalachian State University as a student-athlete and coach, was named the 20th head coach in Appalachian State football history on Dec. 14, 2012.

“It is with great pride that we announce that Coach Satterfield has agreed to lead Appalachian State’s football program into a new era,” Appalachian State director of athletics Charlie Cobb said. “Scott has been successful in every role that he has filled during his 15-year coaching career and obviously has great familiarity and love for Appalachian State. His enthusiasm, energy and ability to coach young men in both football and life is second to none. During the interview process, he impressed the search committee with his vision for Appalachian State football and his plan to implement that vision on and off the field. I am confident that with Coach Satterfield leading our football program, Appalachian will maintain its unrivaled success for years to come.”

Satterfield has enjoyed success at every stop of his 20-year playing and coaching career, most notably in his 17 seasons at Appalachian State. In his 17 seasons as a player (1991-95) and coach (1998-2008, 2012), he has helped lead the Mountaineers to three national titles, eight Southern Conference championships and played a large role in virtually re-writing the program’s offensive record book.

Most recently, Satterfield has also proven to be a coach that can make a big impact in a short time. After a three-year stint away from his alma mater, Satterfield returned to Appalachian State in January as the Mountaineers’ assistant head coach, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Despite inheriting a unit that managed just 390.2 yards per game in 2011 (Appalachian’s lowest production in eight seasons), lost three players that would go on to play in the NFL this season and returned only five starters, the Mountaineer offense flourished under Satterfield’s direction in 2012. Appalachian State ranked among the nation’s top 25 in total offense (ninth - 464.0 ypg), passing efficiency (ninth - 152.03 rating), passing yardage (293.8 ypg) and scoring (32.9 ppg) and, for the first time in school history, produced a 3,000-yard passer (Jamal Jackson - 3,278 yds.), 1,000-yard rusher (Steven Miller - 1,368 yds.) and 1,000-yard receiver (Sean Price - 1,196 yds.) in the same season.

Prior to his return to Appalachian, Satterfield spent one season as the passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Toledo (2009) and two as the offensive coordinator at Florida International (2009-10).

In his only season at Toledo, the Rockets ranked 20th nationally in passing (278.5 yards per game) and 14th in total offense (438.3 ypg), averages that were 89 and 104 yards better than the season prior to his arrival.

In two seasons at FIU, Satterfield helped lead the Golden Panthers to the first two bowl appearances in school history, including a victory over Toledo in the 2010 Little Caesars Bowl. After going 3-9 and averaging 321 yards of offense the year prior to his arrival, FIU won 15 games and averaged 380 yards in Satterfield’s two seasons as offensive coordinator.

ASU Defensive Coordinator
JTONQESUJWGUXHY.20130114213443.jpg



After 13 successful seasons as the defensive coordinator at Southern Conference rival Wofford, coaching veteran Nate Woody is in his first season as Appalachian State's defensive coordinator.

Woody has spent all 22 years of his collegiate coaching career at Wofford (1988-93, 1997-2012) and served as the Terriers’ defensive coordinator since 2000.

In his 13 seasons at the helm of his alma mater’s defense, Woody built one of the Southern Conference’s most successful units. Wofford led the SoCon in total defense three times under his tutelage, including twice in the last three campaigns (2010 and 2012), and produced nine all-Americans and three SoCon Defensive Players of the Year.
