    So would a lot of us. But it's not going to happen. ESPN wants the Appy game on TV for viewers and MOST of the Rivalry weekend games are in state rivals. Therefore, Appy goes mid week and mid season and Gag St goes to Rivalry weekend.

    It's not rocket surgery!

    And risk the chance of playing in an Ice Bowl every 2 years? No thanks.





    For the past 2 years... Southern fans showed up in Atlanta and in Statesboro post Thanksgiving. We've shown we can handle playing this game after Thanksgiving.

    Had we played say... Texas St on Saturday, no way we get the same attendance.

    Yall are missing the point. I don't think we should regard them as rivals.

    Its inevitable. I believe the students already have a hatred for GaSt that matches App at this point. Remember, they went to high school with folks at GaSt and got to read all the social media garbage from them. Its a natural rival.

    This will grow over time with students attending/graduating with GaSt on the schedule.

    Will it replace App? No

    It will replace the void Furman left.

    I just feel like we should treat them the same way thUGA treats us. Like we don't matter

    Again, not going to happen. They are an in-state team in the same level (G5) and the same conference as us. As long as we play them, they will be considered ONE of our rivals.

    Whether they are good or bad, or whether we like them or respect them is irrelevant.

    We're not in the same Division or even conference as UGA, so their attitude toward us is warranted. We play Gag annually in every sport so its a more natural rivalry.


    I dont have an issue with playing them on rivalry weekend. I guarantee that had we beaten Troy or even Ark State the week before there would have been a bit more buzz going into the game. You had the die-hards show up, which if the game has more conference title implications you will get more of the casual fans as well. As it stands, the game really had little stakes, other than getting to 7 wins for us to ensure we'd go to a bowl and beating state to even the series at 3.

    I know the facts. Just stating my opinion, but thanks for sharing the obvious

    apples and oranges. SEC school that has been playing football for about 100 years vs Sunbelt school that was FCS until 6 years ago. To them, we don't matter and even though I don't like it, I get it.

    You were the one that said we were missing the point. Had you left that part off your post, no one would have argued with you at all.
