Sounds to me like you boys are about to be taken tot he woodshed. That small pond sure is looking good about now isn't it?
Headline: Eagles to go 1-11 in 2014!!!!
I don't see it that way at all watchgator. The only way for Georgia Southern to play in good bowl games in the future is to command a national following. How do you do that? Well for starters you must play good quality teams and win. The three teams added are good games that I think GSU will compete in. 1-11 is a bit harsh for out first year but I think maybe we go 1-3 against these teams and 5-3 in the conference to break even our first year.
If LSU is moved or dropped and we keep one of the FCS teams then 2-2 out of conference and 7-5 overall is my guess.
Dang those are some really good match-ups for us but it sucks we couldn't get at least one of them at home.
flowmaster I read today that the LSU game has been moved to 2017 and Hampton was dropped so that means we will play five at home and seven away in 2014.
I know 2014 is a long way off but I like the Eagles chances with this new conference. Watchgator said we would go 1-11 and wwwhunter said 7-5 so here is my take on it.
Out of conference we beat Navy in a close one and win against the Div II team of course. I give us 50/50 odds at GT but I will call it a loss and I think NC State cleans our clock for sure so 2 wins - 2 losses here.
In conference we play App St. 50/50 call it a win, Georgia St. a win, South Alabama a win, Troy 50/50 call it a loss and a TBA (FCS move up) call it a win so in the east we go 4-1. Now the real question is who do we play in the west? Texas State is a win, ULL is a loss, UM is 50/50, stAte is a loss, Idaho and NMSU are wins so depending on who we draw from the west I think we could see our Eagles anywhere from 6-6 to 9-3 in 2014.
