There are two reasons I’m not taking Georgia Southern lightly.
One – they are very capable of rolling up points, as we all remember from their game in Tuscaloosa a year ago. They might be a tougher offensive test than Tech.
Two – Their fan base is almost as much of an annoyance as Tech fans. It’s rather depressing to deal with a group of fans that don’t know their place in the college football food chain. It happens every time they play Georgia in Athens. They come into the Classic City – you know, a REAL college town, using their little league titles as a reason they’ll leave with a win.
Glory of Georgia, my ass.
Look, I know Georgia Southern has a little-man syndrome.
They operate under the illusion that championships within their little minor leagues somehow equal championships in the nation’s toughest and best football conference.
But here’s the reality. You’re Georgia Southern. And regardless of what your marketing hacks or university presidents say, people DO NOT choose to go to your school of The University of Georgia.
And don’t forget – Georgia Southern’s football program probably never gets going with much success had UGA found a way to convince Erk from leaving Athens.
