Before Furman changed their mascot to the Paladin, I heard that the cheerleaders used to have shirts that read:

Furman University
Christian Knights

They're too high-filutin' for us! To heck with them. GO CATS!!
Took it a while to register but, :laugh: :eek: :laugh: :eek: :laugh: :eek: :laugh: :eek: :laugh:
Gosh. Never heard that one before. You Igglets fans are quite witty. :snore:
Well, the Tech boys thought it was funny. 03-wink
Now there's something to think about....

Them's fightin' woids! 05-nono :saber:
Now now.

As a Tech man, you don't want to fight with a Furman man, do you? I mean, check the football records since 1983. :laugh:

FWIW, I like Tech.

Every time they play Clemson.

Hey, Stumpy.......

Ooops, wrong thread

Hey wait a minute, wrong board.

FWIW, I like Tech, too.

Except when they play Clemson.
I'll join in too. I root for Tech when they play ACC teams from the Triangle up here.

1983...that must be the year that Furman beat us. :bang:

BTW, all you casual Tech fans can come over to our board if it ever gets slow around here. There is almost always some kind of conversation going on over there.
Didn't Furman nearly beat GT back in 1991? 19-17 or something like that. I think FU missed the game-winning fg didn't they? GO CATS!!
Sure did. I don't how you remembered that... :eek:
And for all my Georgia Southern friends out there who jaw on about how chicken Tech is for not scheduling us...

<span style='font-size:21pt;line-height:100%'><span style='color:blue'>THIS IS WHY!!!</span></span>

The Jackets know first hand what a 1-AA team can do to your season. So, why in the hell would they schedule the perinnially best team in 1-AA.

1)There is a damn good chance of getting beat, which is what Oregon St. found out in '99 :eek:

2)The game will be a sellout...not because big money Tech alum will flood in to see GSU...but, every halfwitted UGA fan who remembers what Erk did WILL flood in just to see the carnage if Tech got beat.

3)Tech has to write Georgia Southern a big check to have the "privilage" of risking the first two reasons. :bang:

As much as I'd LOVE to see GSU get the chance to take the trip to North Ave., IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN! :crying:

We won in 83, got a tie in 86, should have won in 91, and I believe got the ever-living hell beat out of us in 95.

BTW, in between the first win and the tie in 1986, we beat the snot out of NC State two years in a row. I attended Furman from 83 to 87...we never lost to a I-A team while I was there. Then I graduated, and we lost three in a row to FSU and Clemson (twice).

Should I go back for my masters before we play Clemson this year?
