However, Clemson actually released multiple supportive statements of Coastal when we were playing for and won our national title in baseball.

In fact, there was a video posted of the whole Clemson football team in their locker room watching us throw the final pitch that won the national championship, and then they all went absolutely nuts cheering.

So this isn't as incredibly out of the ordinary as you'd think. There is something to be said for state pride.

That being said, I would be livid if Coastal did something similar. Lol

We mean it when we say Hail Southern, and No Place Else.

Coastal's fan base is no different than yours in the sense that our hardcore fans like myself despise SCar and Clemp's Son. However, we also have a portion of our fan base that "roots for both" us and one of the others. Then we also have the old codgers that "root for the state." These are the same people that poke you with their canes and tell you to sit down when you stand at a sporting event.

I think we all deal with similar issues.

But coming from the official twitter handle is pretty bad in my opinion. But like I said, Clemp's Son showed us support when we won our national title. But I would never want us to reciprocate that support. Screw them.

Oh, my! The horror.

The same is obviously true for GSU. Most Georgians supporting GS, GSU, KSU, Mercer, and most anybody else are also UGA or GT fans to one degree or another. It is the reality of our collective non-P5 existence. Of course some of our SBC brethren are fortunate to be in states without football traditions of any consequence.

I'm in that boat, but not as a fan. I am GS True Blue all the way, and have hated UGA since I grew up in FL. The problem is, that my daughter is a freshman at UGA this year. I have a "UGA DAD" decal on my truck to support my daughter, not to support the school.

Dude hasn't done anything but **** on Statesboro in his feed. I'm sure I could find some idiot App fan that tosses UNC or NC State's salad in the same manner.

You really are trying to make a point with this guy? Try again.

You said “we mean it when we say Hail Southern, and No Place Else.”

All I did was share a tweet from one of your own. Feel free to infer from it what you want.

Notice the WE part.

WE are fans. This guy isn't.

Want to try again?

Haha, so your argument is Georgia Southern fans are Georgia Southern fans?

Blistering hot take right there.

Idiotic take comparing one person out of tens of thousands that have attended a school vs the official football twitter account of a team....

Like I said, I just shared a tweet! Take from it what you want.

Folks make too big a deal out of supporting other programs and much of it is a result of the idiot kids that wear some other universities jersey to class or the fan that graduates from my G5 U of A and supports P5 U of B. It's an insult pure and simple.

But at times finding myself supporting CrAppy on the athletic field with great passion and even calling my niece to encourage her to take advantage of schollie touting all that I know that is good may shed some light on the application of a little commons sense.

Ok so meaningless and not related to the point...I am sure App has some UNC fans on campus but I will wait on the App Basketball twitter account to congratulate UNC basketball next time they make the NC Game.... You tried you failed move on.07-coffee3

And they started arguing with people who responded as well. The Logic was something like "If you win your bowl game, you can be sportsmanlike"

Most idiotic statement I've ever heard.
