They bag on us all the time so I'll feel free to bag where I see bagging warranted.

And, as usual, numbnuts on both sides of the aisle are completely missing the point here, of which there are more than one.

For instance, talk to a Cooser, like golden panties, and he'll tell you all day long what a great football conference they've joined and that the newbies they've signed up are solid, and have a lot of potential......even moreso than the Belt which some have said is in decline or weakened because all the good teams have gone to Coosaland.

Yet you read what many of those fans say in the subject thread and they're scared crapless to step on the field with someone like Bama. You'd swear they'd soiled their diapers at the very thought of such a thing.

As I said, I'm glad the Belt has recruited programs like App State and Georgia Southern who not only have a solid history of winning, but who also aren't scared crapless to walk out on to the field with the likes of Michigan and Florida. They not only showed up, they won.

Is there an award for worst poster of the year?

You'd have been much wiser to play to an FCS patsy, say, someone like ODU. They're skeerd of their own shadows.

I contrast many of those comments to what AppState and Georgia Southern have accomplished as FCS teams, beating Michigan and Florida respectively.

I'm glad the two above-mentioned programs are joining the Belt.

Dead on you don't get better unless you play better teams. When we scheduled UF it was when they were on top. Did we get lucky to catch them at the right time? Yes, but someone smarter than me said luck is nothing more than preparation meeting opportunity. When we played AL we racked up the most yards and scored the most points on them the entire year I believe. Oh and it was none of that garbage time scoring either. We also nearly shut them out in the fourth quarter but Saban felt the need to score one more with 00:44 seconds left in the ball game. Even in a loss you can come out with some good positives when you play one of the all time best teams. I just appraised an AL fans house the other day, and he brought up us coming the closest other than LSU as any other team that year beating them. So now AL fans have some respect for us and know who we are not some scared team that will not play them even with 22 more full scholarships than that "little" ole FCS team from GA did.
Glad the overall feeling in this conference is anytime anywhere. ODU has no business turning that game down, they were a competitive FCS playoff team. No marbles 05-nono

I am not so sure you need to worry about Odu's marbles.

Your claim "you don't get better unless you play better teams" I believe they had Five (5) FBS programs on the 2013 schedule three ACC schools (Pitt, UNC, Maryland along with Idaho and ECU four of those schools went bowling. I don't think GaSU or App had 5 FBS schools on your 1st transitional year schedule. I understand they also received payday checks well over $3,000,000.00 for those games. They have already scheduled VA Tech for a 7 game series stating in 2017, three in Norfolk. They have a payday game this year (2014) with Vanderbilt, ($1,000,000.00) and have a home and home game series scheduled with NC State, starting this year and a return to Norfolk in 2015. They have other FBS teams OOC on the schedule for the future. I also understand they are working on a home and home with Virginia.

Moving forward, it looks like they are working toward home and home with other P5 schools. The AD at Odu has been very aggressive with his philosophy for scheduling. The 757 is a very attractive area for other FBS programs to increase recruiting visibility. I think for them it was a good decision.

Agreed that we shouldn't care what ODU does - and I don't.
But lets not elude to any idea that they have plenty of "balz" when scheduling by talking about their 1st year transitional schedule versus ours.

You should NOTE: ODU knew almost a year in advance of us that they would be going FBS. Although we are all on the same transitional time frame, our invites came almost a year after theirs. That allowed ODU a chance to play out their coming season while putting together an FBS transition schedule. By contrast, our schedule's were already set by the time our invites came and we made our announcement to transition. THIS is why we didn't have 5 FBS games on that first transition year. We (Ga Southern) had one shot at an FBS team, against an SEC team with the #2 ranked SEC defense and a top 10 Nationally ranked defense.

You'd have been much wiser to play to an FCS patsy, say, someone like ODU. They're skeerd of their own shadows.

If we were to beat Michigan again this year in our first game the Wolverine faithful would commit suicide.

After watching that video, I hope EVERY single poster here who believes it's better for ODU to wave the white flag of surrender before ever stepping foot on the field with Bama is ashamed of themselves. Bunch of frenchmen.04-chairshot

And in front of 107,000, no less.

I still think we had a real shot at beating BAMA if they would not have blocked out kick for a TD. It took the wind out of our sails!

The announcer who called that game is the same one who called Boise State's Fiesta Bowl win over OU. He's got a knack for famous upsets.

For the record, my favorite call is when one of your Radio guys shouted something like "We just dern beat the Michigan Wolverines!"

One can only imagine the thrill it must be see your program get that kind of win. I sure hope the Cajuns give me such a thrill before I die.

I hope you guys do, too. Every fan base needs at least that "ONE" win that you NEVER get tired of talking about. Even to this day, anytime I ever see anyone with a Florida shirt on or Florida gear on their car, I take great joy in ruining their day.

Hell, I even give Michigan fans crap about the App win. It just feels good to crush the soul of a mindless zombie fan who never placed a single foot on the campus.
