RE: SportsWatch predicts Georgia Southern to win the Sun Belt in Football!
If anything bringing this thread back is funny as hell. I get it we won the conference title but damn get over it. Now I will say this in GS fans defense, if you tell them they can't do something and they prove you wrong get ready for it. I don't blame Southern fans one bit for SOME of the ribbing but guys we have to know when enough is enough.

Now SB fans you have played a part in this as well so don't sit back and complain about arrogant GS fans acting all high and mighty. I stumbled on this board about 5yrs ago or so and not many SB fans wanted us in this conference. Now that being said, thank you to all SB fans congratulating us on the Outright title and good luck to all the bowl invitees. One thing that you guys don't understand we've been hated for the better part of 30yrs so believe me when I say this. You can probably count on one had the number GS fans that care one iota what another fanbase says or things. The only thing that GS and it's fans care about is winning.

Five years ago there was no room for GS in the Sun Belt. One of my favorite fallacies thrown around by GS fans is how no one wantef them. 9 out of 10 times that someone said they didn't want you guys it was in favor of no expansion. You and App were pretty commonly viewed as the best candidates for some time.

Exactly which one of your fans played a single down of football? If you woulda went 2-10, it wouldn't have been your fans fault, don't see why your fans get any credit for what your players accomplished. You fans didn't "do anything" but watch your boys play football.

jesus h Christ people. act like we've won before.

But all the FCS and Socon titles don't count. We hadn't won anything at the FBS level. So technically we haven't won before, so we can't act like we have (maybe we can pretend). Most fans of other schools predicted GS (and App) to have at most 3 wins and finish near the bottom of the conference. We far exceeded their expectations and even those of our fanbase. 02-13-banana COGS

and that is more reason to just sit back and enjoy it.

resurrecting threads like this and talking down to our competition makes our fan base look like ass holes.

I gave up weeks ago. They're just asses. The rest of the SBC can say whatever you like about the bigmouths but just remember, we are all not like them.

The part where you said" you tell georgia southern fans they can't do something and they prove you wrong, get ready for it." I think that's worded pretty clearly

Maybe it's a language barrier or something and I might have taken it out of context, but where I'm from... We say that when you are actually the one doing the proving wrong, not spectating.

END THREAD!!!!!!!!!

Congrats again on making a bowl again. You guys have put together about 4 or 5 winning seasons. That's a great accomplishment.

I haven't done anything, I just watch...No matter what. I'm a fan, I support the team and their on field results don't make me any more or less of a man. See I don't actually play or practice or anything, I just give my money and time because I enjoy supporting the teams.

Admittedly there may be more talent in the Sun Belt but the top 4 SoCon teams every year would be in the top half of the sun belt every year. We went undefeated and won the conference because we played pretty well and our guys gave a lot of effort, but we also won because it was easy. Don't believe it? Look up our margin of victory vs conference opponents in the Sun Belt and vs the SoCOn. Look up Apps too. Youd be surprised. The tired argument that this is "big boy" football just isn't valid. We knew we could compete and win and a few of you were smart enough to acknowledge it, but most of you tried desperately to "put us in our place". Well that didn't work out for you and now you've taken to insulting or fans calling us petulant children among other things. We're not children anymore now are we? You can call us daddy now.

This was the worst Sun Belt slate by a champion in nearly a decade. Your comparisons to the SOCON would not hold water from about 2008-2013. There was a precipitous drop off this year.

This thread is hilarious. *cough* That being said....The Sunbelt Started football in 2001 correct? So we're talking 13 season of playing football...I'm not sure if this is a bash at the Belt or not, but it sounds like to me that you're saying that the conference has been decent off and on for...almost half of it's football life thus far? 04-jawdrop I'm glad we're not in the Socon anymore, and I do think that top to bottom, the Sunbelt is a stronger conference, but if you go back 13 years in the Socon as well, I would bet that 10 out of 13 years, the socon champs of that era would also be number 1 or 2 of the sunbelt as well. Just my opinion.

That comparison is inappropriate in ANY year. And if they truly feel that way, they're certainly free to go back where they came from . . . ..05-mafia

The Sun Belt from 2001-2005 and in 2014 was pretty terrible. I don'tknow about the top 4 in the SOCON, but two barely removed SOCON programs fared pretty well this year.


Its hilarious that after 20 plus pages of being completely and totally wrong that any of you haters would think that your excuses or reasoning have one ounce of merit. You look like buffoons trying that crap. Talk about childish, wow... We won, we did it by going undefeated and we get but, but, but .... Man up, accept it that GS and App are better and will have to carry this conference on our backs. Obviously there's hope for ULL, stAte, and Texas State, but yall have to bring it next year. Why in the hell GagState was picked to join is still a mystery. Don't like me bashing the Sun Belt? Never get on an ACC or SEC board, you'll really get your feelings hurt. The Sun Belt is bad but never fear, GS and App are here to help. To paraphrase Ricky Bobby, "We're winners Chip, and winners get to do what they want". Also, "Together we rise" is communist. Possibly even dictatorial like North Korea. This is America. We'll work hard and reap the rewards. The rest of you can live off the welfare. Enjoy.

RE: SportsWatch predicts Georgia Southern to win the Sun Belt in Football!
4 reasons we won the conference, in order of importance...

#1 A lot of things came together for us as far as coaching and personnel. Seriously, how many of our fans knew who Matt Breida was before this year?

#2 We aren't a typical move-up…we (like App) are more comparable to Marshall than WKU and UMass.

#3 We got a break with the schedule…I'm not going to apologize for it but we still did.

#4 A few scattered strokes of luck (most teams who run the table in their conference need some luck). We needed some luck to escape from San Marcos. The rest of the conference games I felt we outplayed our opponents.

Saying the conference is just crap just doesn't give our team enough credit. At the bare minimum you'd have to go back to the 90s when Marshall and App State were both in the SoCon to find a tougher conference slate.

Fritz said after the season that when he saw the talent level in the GS program first hand before the season that if they were FCS he would be disappointed if they didn't win the national title. Obviously he had no frame of reference for the Belt so that's a pretty powerful statement.

I agree with pretty much everything you said, but Abilene Christian(a year removed from DII) likely would have gone at least 3-5 against your schedule, you still don't owe anyone any apologies.
