    I haven't peeked at your schedule, though I do know from reading you have JaxSt, Lambuth and Alabama on the schedule.

    Wow, this is even more spin than the last post. Simple question, yet no answer. Only mindless ramblings about some preview on ESPN. Buddy, ESPN has been chronicling GSU's start-up efforts with online videos and magazine articles. The Star Jackson story was all over SI, USA Today,, you name it. But that's not what we're talking about here. We are talking about a guy who spent years under PJ as an assistant at GA Tech, and yet despite all that, he can't get the invite at the year's most prestigious college football media event in the state, hosted by the Game Day Live crew. Like I said, spin, spin and spin some more, about Curry, and GSU's relevance, but the fact remains that there are only 3 big boys at the table, and the guy in Statesboro is not.

The man that Monken worked under won 9 games in his first season and that was in making the transition between a pro-offense and the flexbone option.

    And speaking of Furman, at least PJ has a winning record against them, and not a 0-1-1 like Curry's at Georgia Tech. And yeah yeah, I know Monken is our coach and not Johnson, but Monken has pretty much been PJ's right hand man through GSU, Navy, and Tech. And not to mention that unlike Curry, Monken has experience in this division and more experience recruiting in this state. I'd sooner bet on him making GSU a power than Curry making State a power. The Zenith of Curry's coaching career was a loss to Miami in the Sugar Bowl. And any fool can take 'Bama to the big game once in a while.
    I love the spiel on Curry's record. Curry took a GA Tech program that was in absolute shambles, and actually made it into something presentable. He is the type of guy who's never been afraid to roll up his sleeves and do the hard work to create something. Again, spin it all you like as you are obviously adept at it, but winning multiple coach of the year honors says all you need to know about Curry. Oh and the "any fool can take 'Bama to the big game once in a while" is priceless. Curry's three-year record of 26–10 gave him the highest winning percentage among Alabama coaches since Bear Bryant, LOL!

He seems to think he is going to effortlessly mow down the competition in the FCS because of where he has coached before. His coaching staff looks like something he just threw together in a minute.
    Yeah, our coaching staff has about what, 50+ years of combined experience over Southern's, lol!! John Bond, our offensive coordinator, helped Northern Illinois to two Mid-American Conference Western Division titles and two bowl games, highlighted by a 9-4 record in 2004, when the Huskies ranked 11th in the nation in rushing, 14th in scoring and 14th in total offense. At Illinois State, Bond was a finalist for the American Football Coaches Association’s Assistant Coach of the Year award. Yeah, hardly a guy you just "throw together in a minute."

    Mid-level in CAA by 2012? I sure hope so. That's like what, top 4 in SoCon, lol!

GSU has a much higher percentage of students with an SAT (math plus verbal) more than 1000.
    Don't talk about academic programs. Really, it's just flat out embarrassing. Southern is nowhere to be found in rankings when it comes to undergrad education, and I just posted you some of the rankings for GSU. The only reason Southern's SAT scores have been 10-15 points higher than GSU's in the last few years is because GSU has grown more than any other school in the state. We are on pace to increase our average SAT scores by 15+ points this year alone, so we'll revisit that subject in a couple of months. In the meantime, you keep spinning that wheel. You're so good at it, I'd recommend a wheel of fortune tryout.

    Just because they have experience doesn't mean they are worth a crap.

    Just curious, why did you leave out Bond's poor showing at GT in your "bio" of him?
    People never grow up. They just learn how to act in public.

    Oh, and for Ga State fans, that means that this "smack" thread is boring, not what you are used to hearing from your boyfriends.
    The things that come to those who wait will be the scraggly junk left by those who got there first.

    Monken PI has experience as coordinator - good

    GSU Coordinators = bad

    As for the rest, even Columbus state has a fortune 500 CEO. Even Dollar General store is fortune 500.

    you should go on all day because I have found no published list of the colleges of the CEO's of Fortune 500. Even the brochure from the Robinson School of business does not claim more F 500 CEO's than anyone.

    BTW - that title belongs to the U of Wisconsin......
    HAHA!!! Southern education at its BEST! "If I can't find it on the internet, it doesn't exist." LMAO!!!!! There are a lot of things Robinson brochure doesn't "claim," especially a list published six years ago, but I assure you, just because you close your eyes, cover your ears, or wish it away, it doesn't make it so. And tell me something, what does it say about Georgia Southern, when even Columbus State has a Fortune 500 CEO? No one here seems to answer ANY of my questions, or try to provide any facts about Southern, and we all know why -- Southern's history when it comes to academia or successful business leaders is non-existent, and pales in comparison to GSU, or as we have apparently found out, Columbus State. Bravo Statesboro. Hail Southern, LOL!

    I suppose you guys expect us to draw 1000 a game and go 2 and 9 and slip quietly into the night

    That wasn't a bio, just his greatest accolades. If you want to see his full bio, or any of our coaching staff, feel free to visit our athletics site.

    Heck, if you want to see a REAL recruiting site from a program that actually "gets it," click here:

    Paintballer is hilarious. My all time favorite thread with his involvement is him on Stingtalk trying to convince GT folk to agree with his anti GSU ranting and then watching them turn against him in masse. LMAO
