I know you went to a bowl game last year, but you can't go backwards this year. Having a smaller, more intimate stadium should help draw some fans. I have no ill will towards Ga State. Panama, you still owe me an adult beverage for you guys losing to us last year.

RE: General Expansion Talk
So, what's the deal with turner field. How will it be retrofitted into a football stadium rather than a baseball field?

Magix

Actually the plan is to play in its as is in 2017 and then begin work on the building after the 2017 season.

So, with the Big 12 determining they won't expand, what does that mean? Is Jerry still confident that we will be FBS in a few months? I have heard some say the Big 12 decision is just the beinning of the end for that conference. Ince their GOR agreement ends the better teams will bolt for stronger more secure options.

I think Jerry was talking out his ass. It sounded really good to the audience but I just don't see how it will happen.

Likely lots of bluster. What conferences for a potential invite? What college prez/admins taking about forming another southern locale conference? What developments for seeking indy? It just seems like another knuckle head comment (sorry Knucklehead for the inclusion) without substance.

I've made my thoughts known on ever getting an FBS invite. I don't think it's ever going to happen. Indy is the only potential route and that's sticky as well.

I agree with everyone. I think Jerry was being optimistic rather than factual.

However Georgia Southern would make a better addition to C-USA than Georgia State. Why?

1) Savannah is no worse than Birmingham on media market size
2) Savannah is an easy road trip for FAU, FIU , and charlotte
3) Georgia Southern has a much longer football tradition than Georgia State and would be quickly competitive in CUSA just as they have been in sun-belt.
