Blind Boys of Alabama

The infamous Blind Boys of Alabama brings a night filled with soul music to Farthing Auditorium at Appalachian State Saturday. The Blind Boys first formed at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in 1939. In 2007 the Blind Boys were honored with an induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Hard to Tell

Old Crow Medicine Show performed earlier in the week on campus (App State) with Mista Arthur Grimes flat-footing. Great show!

Quarterfinal Chaos

The Mountaineers season ended with a disappointing loss to Richmond yesterday at Kidd Brewer Stadium. Plagued with seven turnovers (5 interceptions) the Mountaineers fell apart in the second half. We are all disappointed, it's been a long time since we haven't been to the championship game. I am most disappointed however, in many of my fellow App State fans. As the clock began to run down in the third and fourth quarters, and it became more likely that we would fall, the stands were emptying?! This is when your team needed your support more than any other time all season, and you walked out on them. Shame. Stand strong and proud Mountaineers, we have come a long way these past few years. This year was an extremely young team, and next season looks promising. As I gaze out at Howards Knob in the frigid windy weather I am reminded of all the other wonderful things Appalachian State has to offer, and more importantly, that it is always a great day to be a Mountaineer!
