    I plan to hang out a few days in Apalachicola fishing and then head to Pensacola on Saturday. How long a drive is that?

    Should be a really good game.

    I haven't really studied up on West Florida too much as far as who they lost. How many starters from last year are back on o-line? All those receivers back? Who you got at RB?

    I know we lost a few guys on both sides but a lot of folks are back on the Blazers that know how to win a ring too.

    It should be a really good game.
    A 2-3 hour drive from Apalachicola on 98 due to slow traffic. Bring some good tunes and relax because it’s a lot of stop and go driving, but it is scenic. Take 30a beach route just west of Panama City through Seaside for a very scenic drive to Destin.

    Argos biggest hole in team is O-line, but coach has signed a lot of big bodies including multiple FCS transfers and a top FCS kicker from Tenn.St. A lot of transfer receiving talent has also been signed including guy from Oregon State. They will be deep with receivers again. A lot of transfer talent has been signed on defense including D1 linebackers. I am hoping we get to see the game and it should be a good one if both teams are at full strength.

      You're gonna love the Appalach! Great fishing and a really laid back atmosphere. As for the Valdosta State game, it's gonna be fireworks and I can't wait! The Argos lost three awfully consistent linemen with 3-4 years of starting experience, and that can't be overlooked, but there were some solid TRs signed (and a few returners who played some). We've always been blessed with a boatload of great receivers (Lehtio/Randolph will be tough to replace), and our other skill positions are intact. Kicker will be important to develop, and we lost a couple of LBs and DLs, but all DBs return. I don't worry as much about the offense; it's the defense I worry about, especially looking at VSU and your QB/skill positions, and Mississippi College's always-hard-to-defend option game.

      How's VSU roster looking -- who'e returning?
      I've spent a lot of time in Apalach and St George Island over the past 30 years. It's kind of like my second home. Love it in the fall. Will likely retire there some day. My kind of place.

      Out of the 46 people listed in our 2 deep roster last fall we lost 11. 4 on defense. On offense we lost 3 WR's, but none of them starters. 3 from OL. I was impressed with they way they looked in the spring (we were fortunate that Goff started spring early. Got the full schedule in including the spring game before everything was called off for corona virus. I thought that was a big deal headed into Goff's second year). Pretty much all our skill guys on offense back.

      Last year for Rogan Wells. Would love to see him finish it off with another national championship. I think the talent will be there (in 2017 the Blazers made a mid-season turnaround. Since the loss to West Ga on 10-7-17 the Blazers are 28-2. I think we'll have another very talented team that knows how to win this fall).

          You guys will be loaded again. October 10th is for home field in the playoffs and the winner of the playoff game between the 2 of us wins the 2020 natty.

            I really don't think we have football this fall.

              I am more skeptical than hopeful for a full season this year. An effective antibody serum is the only thing that would flip me to more hopeful than skeptical. I was so looking forward to this game and it looks like it’s deep enough in season to be affected by an eventual shutdown due to widespread outbreaks. I REALLY wanted to see Wells vs. Reed play each other again.

                I thought we'd have an abbreviated season (7 or 8 games) until I saw that Valdosta State added a game opening weekend. Someone's optimistic that we'll be playing early (frankly, I'm not).

                  Argos now down to 8 games after losing Fla. Tech and now home opener vs. West Virginia Wesleyan due to their conference canceling all OOC games due to virus. Probably be difficult to find replacement and Argos only other OOC game on road vs. Southwest Baptist is now their opener.

                      Argos replace opener against West Virginia Wesleyan with #3 Texas A & M Commerce at Blue Wahoo on Thursday, Sept. 3. What an upgrade and best home opener in Argo school history.

                            VSU could reach out to Wingate and Erskine, both have early season weeks open which would be SR2 games. Another option to fill a spot might be Edward Waters and/or Allen University (SC). Side note: both are currently NAIA but EWC was playing a schedule that primarily consisted of SIAC schools and I believe Allen has applied for D2.

                              Hilarious because both of those teams (Wesleyan and Commerce) bounced on opportunities to play home and home against a SAC school last year.
