You mean you haven't heard of the magical Beautiful Eagle Creek water? I can believe you left that out.

Do your homework here.

Yeah, thanks but no thanks. Not reading through pages of boring filler about a guy I don't care about. I may not care about Bear Bryant either but at least I've heard of him.

Those Auburn folks call Bear "the old dead drunk", what say you ?

My dad was taught by a doctor in medical school who use to tend to Bryant when he would get drunk. He said that Bryant had his own room in the hospital with an actual nice bed instead of a hospital bed. The nurses would put pajamas on him after the cops dropped him off and then the cops would give him a ride back home or where ever the next morning.

So much wrong with this...

Top CUSA teams? In this thread I see one incoming CUSA school that said they adopted it.

And what does one have to do with the other? If GATA had come from some DIII school rather than Georgia Southern, would that mean that school deserved Sun Belt discussion simply because an incoming CUSA school used it as well?

The inflated sense of worth displayed by you and many of your peers is puzzling. Football was not invented, nor reinvented in Statesboro. Get over yourselves.

Haha. Clearly he's like 15 years old, well and if not I have no other excuses for him. I assure you there are a select few of our posters that are THAT arrogant/ignorant. It happens. The rest of us keep quiet most of the time.

Glad to see your biggest moment was against App State.
Every time I see that video, @ every 2 days when it is posted
I do think of a long line of really tough GaSo running backs that
had to be taken down. Is it football season yet?

That 2010 App game was a turnaround moment for the program at that time. It was huge for a younger group of students/fans who were "all-in" for Georgia Southern, but hadn't seen much on-field success.

Guys like me can remember going to Boone, sitting on the dilapidated bleachers and sharing the port-a-potty with the 12,000 hillbillies and 4 goats in attendance - and that's only 2003, never mind the 90's03-nutkick



Who used a port-a-potty? We always just took a wiz on the outside wall of their little brick bathroom buildings as they couldnt even come close to accomadating the crowds on the inside. We just said.. "Piz On-Um"! 03-pissed04-cheers

Spangler was wrong to bring that to another school.

Yep. Now that we are FBS, La Tech will be reminded that they are a Georgia Southern wannabe. It is a bit embarrassing to blatantly copy a very unique tradition from another school.

Before the FOC idea, when all we had to look at was out of the Reclassification Analysis, I had this idea that when under the "Phase 2" expansion they would have bowled in the East endzone with 7,000 on grade seats that we could take that Erk bust and set it at the top of the berm and let the players head but it as they ran down a grassy center ramp and into Paulson Stadium ala Clemson & Howard's rock. Of course that'l never happen now. 03-hissyfit
But, I'd much rather have that FOC right where it's going to be.

I don't think we copied the tradition, we just had a former Ga Southern coach who probably had it in his blood. GATA is gone now that Spangler is gone. (but I hope we literally GATA better next year than we did under Spangler).

Got it. That makes sense then if you are no longer using it.

How do you get that? It was ERK's but he was a D-Cord who brought it with him from uga and we dont even play Tech.

It has become more of a GSU thing, but uga still uses it a little bit.

I'd bet that some of the guys with PJ have used it.

You learn things in coaching that you are going to use to motivate your players. Nothing "wrong" with him using what he learned from the Legend.
