No. 124 Georgia Southern
http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nca...r/8549813/

Referred to us as the panthers in the article. I guess it will take us winning for a few seasons for them to start taking us seriously. They said our dream season would be 5-7. To me, that is expected. A dream season would be 7-5 or better. Any other thoughts?

I didn't know you lost your coach. Perhaps with the same coach that beat Florida you would get more respect. I'm not a beating man but I'm sure you guys will finish higher than 124. I learned a loooong time ago, national publications do little real research on the lower end of 1-A.

We are switching our offense up a bit, and changing a few things of defense, but I think we have a good chance to finish at least 5-7. They don't pay attention to the lower end of the FBS like they do the upper end. But it's better than them not giving us any at all. The best thing we can do is prove them wrong.

Depth is an issue at TXST that we are finally getting over I assume it will be an issue for Georgia Southern as well.

It's going to be an issue for Georgia Southern, but in Georgia Southern's defense, they didn't have the dumpster fire of a roster Fran had to deal with.

I seem to recall when Fran took over there were something like 4 OL on scholarship or something absurd like that.

That's true, I hear that our O-line is good enough this year that we are teaching our players this new fad called the "forward pass" so that defense at GaSo better get ready.

We will be ready! I think some people are underestimating us. I know we still have to prove ourselves, but I think it will be a much smoother transition into the Sunbelt for us. Much smoother than Georgia State's.

RE: No. 124 Georgia Southern
The unknown is what is so intriguing about this year for Ga. Southern. We have a new coaching staff who has diversified the offense. We will see how that goes. We are playing new teams we have not played before for the most part. It will be interesting to see how competitive we can be. Ga. Southern fans are not going to be very happy with a 3-4 win season but it is a distinct possibility.

I could see us going anywhere from 2 wins to possibly 8. To me anything 6-6 or better is a great year--- not a good year but a great year.

I like the unpredictability of it. It makes this season more interesting than all the previous. Before, we didn't really have anything to prove, and stayed at a generally consistent level. Now, we have nowhere to go but up.

Exclamation Georgia Southern Football Ranking in USA Today
Number 124 in USA Today for Georgia Southern
Article calls the Eagles, the Panthers, and the Cats at one point. However heaps a lot of praise on the Eagles.

Offense: The big focus offensively was the forward pass, a moment that occurs when the quarterback – the gentleman often seen running the ball for GSU – brings the ball back behind his ear and flings it to and beyond the line of scrimmage, hopefully into the waiting arms of a teammate, often referred to as a "wide receiver." Primarily blockers no more, the Eagles' receiver corps now features a mixed bag of players either new to the position or, in many cases, inexperienced in the intricacies of a more balanced offensive system. As noted, prepare for a transition – and prepare for at least a few hurdles to overcome:
