According the the Charlotte Observer Jerry Moore wanted another one year extension but Charlie Cobb decided to cut ties and move on after Saturday's Loss to Northwest Southern Corner Illinois state preparatory school. I am a big App fan with mixed emotions on this one, but all good things come to an end. I wish Jerry would have stepped down after the 3rd championship season. Team Jerry or Team Charlie?

The stories presented by local media outlets and national outlets seem to conflict. The local outlets seem to state the Jerry Moore stepped down, while national outlets suggest that he was forced out. If he stepped down, that's his right. He's a man in his seventies who deserves to live his life as he so chooses.

However, if Charlie Cobb or Appalachian forced him out I am absolutely appalled. What can we feasibly expect from the Appalachian football team? Sure, we haven't won a national championship since 2007, but who else in the FCS has experienced the success anywhere close to what we have? We've won eight out of the nine last conference championships. Expecting a team to win a national championship every single year is unrealistic. Look to recent year in the BCS; Alabama, Florida, and LSU have all had success, but it's ignorant to imagine that each team could expect to be the national champion year after year.

If Coach Moore was in fact forced out, I think his own success did him in. The '05-'07 title runs instilled an expectation of nothing less than national titles. But as I have said, that expectation is completely unrealistic. Is it really reasonable to expect to be the best in the country all the time? Is a conference title year after year (something App fans would have prayed for ten or twenty years ago) really that bad? There are a number of BCS and FCS teams that would love to have a coach that brings home conference titles with such consistency. If Jerry was forced out, I hope Charlie Cobb is laughed out of Boone when we become the next Western Carolina.

Thanks to this, I now absolutely dread the 2014 Michigan game. Thanks Charlie!

a totally classless move, coach was still winning conference championships in the toughest conference in the division.He should have been granted one more year and a new coaching transition been in the works. If I were a prospective recruit I would think twice about going to this directionless program that is in conflict
