Thread: Top GS Football games of all time - Nominations

  1. #1

    Default Top GS Football games of all time - Nominations

    To get through the summer months, Klak has agreed to help facilitate a March Madness style tournament where we the GSUFans can vote on the greatest Georgia Southern Football game of all time.

    In the weeks leading up to the new football season, we will post weekly polls whereas games will be matched up against each other and members will vote on which game was the greatest. Winning games advance to the next round, culminating in the single Greatest GS football game of all time, and a definitive ranking of the great games of Eagle Football.

    Our potential timeline is as follows -

    June 23-July 6 (weeks 1-2) - Round of 64 teams (32 poll questions linked)
    July 7 - July 20 (weeks 3-4) Round of 32 teams (previous polls closed and archived, 16 new polls created)
    July 21 - July 27 (week 5) Round of 16 teams (8 new polls, archive previous)
    July 28 - Aug 3 (week 6) Round of 8 teams (4 new polls, etc)
    Aug 4 - Aug 10 (week 7) Final 4
    Aug 11 - Aug 18 (week 8) Finals

    So, we will now be taking nominations for games to be included in the field of 64. Once we get the field set, Klak will link the Youtube video of the games in each matchup as well as the GATADB stat pages, so you can dive in depth to each matchup and determine which game earns your vote. Obviously there will be recency bias in this, as most of the games of the 80's are a distant memory and may not have any full game footage to use as a reference. Also, any addition suggestions or recommendations for this are welcome. This was just a random idea I had, presented to Klak and here we are. We have a couple of weeks to get the field of 64 set, so let's hear some nominations for Greatest GS Football Game!

    Wasn't there a fairly big upset of App State some time in the Stowers years? That's the one I was thinking of, but I can't remember the year.

    BTW, I might consider 2018 Ark State just because of the thrill of winning that game on a one-off play-call of the option reverse.

    Was it 94 when he beat Appy then lost to Citadel on a last second missed FG and missed playoffs?

    I miss those days.

    Not 2001 game in Boone. We scraped by, but they held AP under 100.

    Maybe the 2001 regular season game vs Furman. That was a matchup of two top 5 teams.

    My first GSU game made quite an impression on me.
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low
