I don't believe anything but a "Who's your daddy" had been thrown at you. Beyond that how about an answer? Your students have a horrible reputation.

Interesting question since your student section has been known to do the exact same thing. Here's the honest answer for both schools....every school has several bad apples that get worse when a crowd mentality and alcohol are introduced into the equation.

I have met and had some great conversations with App fans. I'm sure if you were honest about it, you would say the same thing about Southern fans. Don't paint a group with a broad brush because of the actions of a few.

Honestly, I think the behavior of the students got worse after the first FCS title, and exacerbated after the 2007 Michigan game. The mentality that, "My school's football team is good, therefore I can act like an a-hope to whomever I want," has been around long enough that unfortunately that's our reputation. I don't remember it being that way when I was a student in the early 2000's.

I agree that fans around 30 and older, for both Southern and App, and fans of other schools for that matter, know how to be civil and have mutual respect for one another.

Considering both schools student body, this was abound to happen. Remember the times in Southern Conference play when games were at noon. Well that doesn't exist in SBC. All these home games are after 5pm. These kids are tanked by then and ready to smash things.

I only expect this to get worse.
I actually thought both sides have behaved better since moving up. I guess I was wrong.

First App students dont sit behind the GaSo bench and next to visiting fans
GaSo Admin until this year has GaSo students next to visitors...still has students behind visiting team
App Admin actively looks for problems and will escort offenders out very quickly.
GoSo does nothing............

I wont paint all GaSo fans as single finger saluting ice throwing fools but your Administration needs to clean it up.

Visitors haven't sat next to students since 2014.

I don't remember a lot of these types of comments back then, minus the whole Frisbee thing which was a mistake by the administration and admitted such afterward.

Security/police do remove people causing issues, whether you pay attention to it or not. They will not stop students from talking trash to the team....but the team is welcome to return it just like they did after taking the lead.

Both fanbases have a history of "bad" things happening when the other team is in town. Neither of us can claim a high ground here.

Ours are probably a little worse but neither are saints.
