    I miss those days.
    Yes, Reed Haley hit 5 field goals that day but I do believe missed one at the end. Only scored FGs in a 17-15 loss.

    Of course in reality, we lost our chance at the playoffs when West Ga beat us at home when we went dumb. That loss knocked us out of the Top 10 and we never recovered.

    Yeah, that is a good one and really the 1989 Marshall regular season ending game as well. That Marshall crowd was probably to that point, the largest opponent fanbase that had come to Paulson.

    Joe Ross with 280 yards in that one, IIRC.

    '93 was probably considered an upset because the general consensus (outside of Statesboro) was that we'd have a rough start our first year in the SoCon. Probably fair given our 1992 campaign and where things were on the national scene.

    '95 had Satterfield at QB and App was enroute to an 11-0 regular season which came to an unceremonious end in the playoffs (I think Satterfield got hurt). That was a very good App team in 1995.

    Might want to add '92 @ Furman. After losing to FAMU we weren't favored to win in Greenville. It was a sort of boring 21-0 win tbh but a rare shutout of the Paladins.

    1992 was a bizarre year. Getting blanked at home by D2 Troy State was imo the worst loss we've ever suffered. Period. Definitely kept us from the playoffs.

    All a toss up. The Ga State one is bad for a variety of reasons but doesn't bother me like those D2 losses at home, and the Troy State one being both a shutout and on Homecoming as well.

    I think you're right being shut out by a D2 at home takes the cake, though CCSU should be in that group because of the NEC scholarship ceiling.

    Except 2006 didn't happen, so there is that.
