Team Coverage

Postby kyace1 » Wed May 30, 2018 9:00 pm

What a fun time! Recruits, coach, Learfield, schedule & season tickets... awesome! I wanted to take a minute and thank Pat Hickey. I really appreciate the coverage being provided. He has done an above and beyond job. Good recruiting info, the new mailbag, interacting with this board and his Twitter followers have all had a part in keeping the excitement going. Thanks!

Pat has been great for us. Easily the best reporter we've had in awhile. Really hope he sticks around for some time. Thanks a lot, Pat.

Oh, and to add, I have seen some things we've discussed here used in Pat's articles. I think that's awesome that he frequents this site. Glad we can help when we have, and also really cool to see you hop on here and talk with us.

Agree, Pat has been terrific! Best interaction us Aces fans have been provided since I can remember. Feel like everything has been upgraded to the best of its ability. Coaching, athletic department, media coverage, radio broadcaster, the team will take a year or two, but I think they will be much more entertaining than previous years even if it’s much fewer wins in year 1. Lets really enjoy this year as we are playing with house money pretty much in 2018-19. Should be easy to root for and get excited. Is it November yet!?!?

The crazy thing is we are almost six months away from starting the season and as Shea, the lastest recruit said:
"the excitement is through the roof there."

November can't come soon enough.

Agree completely with all that is written above, Pat has done a great job and we are definitely in a good position to start making some things happen.

Yes, Pat is the best, and hope he stays around for all the excitement that is going to happen. Really like the "mailbag" feature. Should allow us average fans to ask the questions that no one else wants to ask to a person who seems to want, and is able, to get the answers. The only good thing about getting old is that the time seems to pass a lot faster, than it does when you are young, so November doesn't seem that far away for me.

I still don't see why a roster can't be announced right now of the players we have signed, and are committed. Names can always added at a later date.

Agreed!
Pat Hickey for Mayor!!!!

He’s the Best Beat Writer we’ve had in 30 years. And it’s not close.

Thanks Pat! Keep up the great work!

You all are going to make me blush.

I really appreciate the kind words. Wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't frequent this site as much as possible. This is a great resource that I've relied on for insight and to get a pulse of the fan base.

Likewise, keep up the great work here and thanks for following along. It makes my job 100 percent more enjoyable when fans interact.
