  1. @rocksaucesundae No doubt, your offensive stat lines jumped out at me. Your team is gonna be tough come Sun Belt time.
  2. I like this prediction!!! The Troy running game will be to much for App State to handle.
  3. Great info here. I expect the Troy Trojans to climb the ladder a bit here soon!
  4. Those toe sprains will get you every time.......
  5. Thanks for the question Mr. Bongo, offensively we ran the ball well against Alabama. This is something the coaching staff was hoping for, and I believe is something we can build upon as we take on competition within the Sun Belt. I think the run game will be a strength of this team, and we plan to focus on that as much as we can. With that being said, we are completing less that 50% of our passes through 2 games, and I feel that is unacceptable. We have to take a look at our team and our game plan, and make some adjustments in the passing game. We have some playmakers on the edge, but we can not properly utilize them if we can't throw the ball. The major challenge we currently have on the defensive side of the ball is depth, especially on the defensive line. This is certainly one of my main priorities in recruiting, bringing in defense ends and tackles that can make an immediate impact. The way our roster is currently set up could lead to a disaster if we get nipped by the injury bug along the defensive line. Outside of adding depth to the defensive line, our coaching staff is going to try and bring some play makers to the defense. Honestly we have room for improvement all over the field, and we have a great talent base here in Alabama. We are doing good things with this program, and I feel we can sneak some big time prospects from the big boys.
  6. First off, I want to say that I am proud of the way our guys played on Saturday. We went into big brother’s house looking for a fight, and ran into something we weren’t equipped to handle! Our guys stayed in the fight, got a few punches in, and never gave up for 4 quarters. We learned a lot about ourselves during this game, and I believe it shows we are heading in a positive direction. We implemented a new offensive game plan just prior to the game, and with limited practice time we were able to produce more yardage that weeks prior. We will definitely be able to build on that success as we move forward this season. Our defense played tough the entire game, and I’m proud of the way they hustled and limited the damage. I feel that holding Alabama with all of their playmakers to 41 points was a good showing for our guys. With that being said, we have a lot of positives to work on as we enter this bye week. We will continue to focus on our offensive and defensive game plans, and get them dialed in for the start of Sun Belt conference play. While playing the Alabama’s of the world is certainly fun, and a good tool to judge the team, I feel that our season is really getting kicked off in week 4 when we host Appalachian State. I feel our team will be motivated and prepared, and will display exactly what Troy football is all about. With all of that said, I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.
  7. 41 to 10.... could've been alot worse. The new scheme produced more yardage than the first game, so its a step in the right direction. GG @CadeRich5
  8. Looks like UL Monroe had a good showing.
  9. Good Morning Mr. Mclovin and thank you for your questions. I did not take this job expecting a rose garden, I came in knowing there were some serious issues that needed to be addressed. Our roster is currently lacking the talent we are capable of drawing, and also we have some serious issues with depth and several positions. This has put our staff in a tough position on the recruiting trail in the sense that we have a serious need to bring in a large quantity of quality recruits. It really puts a lot of pressure on us, but I think we are equipped to handle it. We have a plan in place, we know the guys we want playing at Troy, and we are going to work nonstop to make them choose us. We are focused on bringing in guys that came make an immediate impact on both sides of the ball. Also we are focusing on the foundations of our team, and plan on really putting a focus on the offensive and defensive line. As far as the locker room is concerned, the guys have been very accepting of me. I think they saw pretty quickly that we have the same goals in mind, which are to work hard and win football games. They’ve really bought into the system we are instilling her and are ready to be the turning point in the history of Troy football. Oh and before I leave, thanks for calling me out for that week 3 typo in my original statement. I mean a simple phone call would’ve worked, but I guess calling me on national news was just as effective.
  10. Troy, Alabama – Sources have confirmed that new comer, Buckyb, has been named the new head coach of the Troy Trojans. This news comes after an extensive search, and the hiring/firing of a potential replacement during the offseason. Buckyb is stepping in to replace coach SBowman, who led the Trojans to a 4-8 record in 2021. Buckyb is already facing an uphill battle, as he was not named the head coach until week 2 of the 2022 season, meaning he has missed out on key time with the players and on the recruiting trail. Buckyb comes in with very little head coaching and recruiting experience, so his tenure with the Trojans will be interesting to watch. The new coach provided us with the following statement regarding his hiring. “First and foremost, let me say that it is an honor and a priveledge to be standing in front of you as the head football coach of the Troy Trojans. I have inherited a program that is in need of leadership and guidance, both of which I feel I can provide. We have a talented team here, with a strong will to win, and I believe with a little focus we can be competing with the Sun Belt Conferences best in no time. We are bringing in a scheme that I feel suits our players’ abilities well, and we are going to hit the recruiting trail aggressively. My plan is to address key needs in the defensive secondary, then begin building a solid foundation for our offense. A solid offensive line is a must, and will be a priority of my first few years here. I’m coming into this season late, so there is no time to waste. My staff and I have got to hit the ground running, contacting recruits and implementing our scheme with the players. This season can still be salvaged if we stick to our guns and focus on our objectives. In closing, I would just like to issue a warning to the rest of the Sun Belt Conference………….Don’t sleep on Troy, cuz we’re coming! There you have it, confident or hopeful words from the newly hired head coach. Buckyb needs to get things together in a hurry, as his first test will be traveling to Tuscaloosa, AL to square off with the SEC powerhouse Alabama Crimson Tide (1-0) on Saturday.
