Merged my thread into this one. Had not seen this thread before starting one.

That was a good article for GaSo.

Ok, nothing more annoying than mistaken Ga Sou with Ga State. He gets Eagles correctly then uses Panthers throughout the article?! It was a great article, but man, at least get that right. 01-lauramac2 To be fair, throughout my career, when I state I graduated from Georgia Southern, they either mistake us for Southern University (HBCU), North Georgia College (Military College), or Georgia State (in Atlanta).03-phew

They also had a list of the top cats or something in the article.
When you go to Appalachian they don't mistake your school for anything else, but they avoid pronouncing it or spelling it.

At least you can be remembered as the school that beat UF and you're not mistaken as the school that got in a brawl with Miami.

That's one reason we never cared about the ASU being used. Too many schools to get us mixed up with.
Amazing that your article can be so good and fact filled and yet they call you Panthers so much though.

Odd how you can put together such an extensive research and still miss the name. The article does , barely, peak my interest enough to see the remainder though.

RE: No. 124 Georgia Southern
Lately, learning a new offensive system hasn't been all that difficult in college football. That's because most teams already run the spread, and the new guy usually just runs a variant of the spread. Not hard to adjust to new terminology about mostly the same things.

The issue here is a little different. Teams coming from run first offenses have traditionally struggled in their first year. Auburn and Troy for example took a year to develop into a powerful spread offense while taking their lumps.

Maybe GS is going to have a run-first spread similar to what Auburn runs. That could be hazardus to SBC teams and be a little easier to adjust to. But does GS have receivers to run a true spread offense? I think there will be some obvious growing pains early.

I think what we may see against NC State won't be a fully implemented WF offense. I think he is a smart enough coach to know that we won't be able to come out of the gate and be efficient in his offense. Unless we get behind big, I wouldn't be surprised if we don't throw it more than 12-13 times. If that is the case, then the transition will be easy for the offense, because then we are just running the triple option from a shotgun formation.

It is our defense that worries me more than our offense.

The answer to both of those statements is yes.

It will be similar to Auburns Spread Option, and we have great receivers. Fritz even commented after one of the practices that one of the things he was most surprised about when he got here was the speed, size, and ability of the receivers we have. We've added a few JUCO's to the WR corp too, hopefully one of them will pan out.

P.S. people keep acting like we are going to be slinging the ball all over the place. We are going from an average of 7-10 pass attempts per game to 15-20 at the most. We will still run the ball almost 70% of our plays.
