Have you guys had any success scheduling Georgia or Georgia Tech? They may even be willing to do a home and home seeing as you play in the Georgia Dome.

There is a certain likeability factor in Georgia State. I don't quite understand it. But I would love to have a 2-and-2 with them. I think UCF needs, if they really want to schedule FCS teams, up-and-coming and good programs. This program is going to go places.

01-lauramac2 They'd be a better rival for ECU...easy game for each to drive to.

I feel the same way about UCF. We need some neighborly Florida competition.
University of Georgia has University of Florida.
Georgia Tech gets Miami AND Florida State.
Georgia State played in the non-football Sunbelt with USF from '76-'81 and some combo of UCF, FIU, and FAU in the TAAC/A-Sun from '91 to '05. I would love to get a gridiron rivalry going with any number of these former conference mates.

They are avoiding us like the plague. They dont want to legitimize us I guess. We play Houston this year and then some SEC team may 'volunteer' to play us in 2012 03-wink

I would love that. Orlando is relatively close and UCF is one of our old basketball rivals. (Yes I realize I am dating myself)

ECU is another school I would love for us to schedule a home and home with. People in Atlanta know ECU and UCF so we could definitely get some butts in seats for that. Would also love to see those 50k pirates in person. Would be a great road trip.

We should be scheduling all of our old rivals in my opinion as often as we can. FIU, FAU, USF, UCF, Troy and USA should all be on our schedule. They are more recognizable in Atlanta than schools in Maryland and points North.

RE: All Things GSU
Georgia State is a great geographical fit for C-USA. However, there are many other factors at play.

I don't think a great rivalry would develop between ECU and GSU... it's what, an 8 hour drive from Greenville to Atlanta?

It would be an easy trip for UAB fans, though.

Its still closer than any of our CAA Football opponents. But then again we are also a major airline hub and a flight to Greenville is both short and cheap if planned in advance. UAB would be another great trip. Have followed them for a long time.
