Arkansas State knows the feeling... the Independence Bowl was created because the previous year we were 11-0 & no place to go.

Good luck to the Sun Belt teams in their respective bowls!

Just need to get those rings and banner made to go along with that trophy so the recruits can see them first. I am pretty sure recruits will understand we were denied a bowl spot rather than not being deserving or passed over like some will be. We knew this going in, being undisputed conference champs gave us a very small chance. It was just going to be a bonus, hopefully whoever gets the will win and not worsen our OOC.

For the fans of other teams who expressed understanding as to why our AD appealed the decision I say thank you. I know this delayed the bowls by a couple of days and schools like USA and Texas St. were understandably frustrated, but it is over now.

I am hoping all 4 of those bowl eligible teams get to go to bowls.

Now maybe this board can return to some form of civility.

Now the bowls can start selecting their teams. I am still hoping all 4 bowl eligible Belt teams get to go bowling.

Sorry to hear. Congrats on the season.

There's always the nuclear option of Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson.

RE: Appeal denied. Time to move on
JMOFO:

Personally i think the appeal denial was in our best interests..

Our GS Eagles kicked butt and took names early in the season, but at the end of it we had our 1st and 2nd string quarterbacks hurt....

Same with our thousand yard running back..

At the end of the season Ellison's shoulder injury would not allow him to pass effectively as he had early on, and it wasn't going to get any better by a bowl time..

As it now stands, our GS Eagles, who were projected, preseason, to finish EIGHTH in the Sunbelt finished first and won the Sunbelt Championship straight out...

A good year by anyone's standard.

Now is the time for our coaching staff to hit the recruiting trail and nail us down some good replacements for those seniors who are gone..

Now it the time for our injured players to kick back and rehab and be ready when the whistle blows for the first game NEXT season.

As the upstart team that won the Sun Belt conference in their FIRST year our Eagles can expect the very best from those we play, and that's what the game is all about.

So, congratulations to all of the Sun Belt Teams who go to a bowl..

I'll be pulling for each and every one of you to make the Sun Belt proud.

Thank you Georgia Southern coaches, staff, and players for an awesome inaugural season in the Sun Belt!

That is all.

J.

P.S. Thank you IZZY for bailing us out. lol

Very shrewd and immature statement towards your conference mates. The eligible teams you speak of went through the motions and have earned their place. We will wait to see if they are rewarded, if not then we will learn from the experience and focus on improving next year. Hopefully future transitional teams learn from this. Rules are rules and there should never be loopholes. The sense of entitlement parade is over, so let's be supportive of one another and move on in a more mature fashion.

We didn't get what we wanted. None of us are denying that you guys don't deserve a chance at a bowl. What we're saying is that we cant have it our expense.

If you guys knocked Western Kentucky out of a bowl, we'd have all praised you, but we couldn't have one Sun Belt Team knocking out another.

RE: Bowl Info: Georgia Southern Appeal to be voted on tonight
Bowl or no Bowl, It's been a great year. All the experts said 4 wins and finishing 8th in the conference this season would be a good year. I never believed that, Georgia Southern is not a team that strives for 4 wins, and an 8th place finish.

But never in a million years would I have believed that at this point in the year we would be 8-0 in Conference and the outright conference champions. I remember sitting in the Williams Center last year for the announcement that we were going to the SunBelt.

the Sunbelt commissioner made a comment that in theory the inaugural SunBelt Championship game could be played at Paulson Stadium. That did not quite pan out, but I wonder if he really thought the Sunbelt Champions this year would be crowned at Paulson Stadium, and it would be the home team?

I know alot of other Sunbelt Fans thought our talk was just arrogance.
But we showed them that "We Are Georgia Southern, We are Supposed to Win" and that we proved Paul Johnson correct.
Quote:"I'm a firm believer if you don't think you're going to win, you won't," "There's a fine line between confidence and arrogance. But we preach to our players, 'We're Georgia Southern, we're going to win.' "

I guess we will have to settle for our prize this year watching the ACC Championship game, and hear them talk about how we played Georgia Tech to within an inch of their lives.

And While I am behind the SBC teams 100% I am going to get a bit of wry satisfaction hearing the announcers in the SBC bowl games explain how we are the asterisk that the other SBC teams carry into the game.

"I'm gonna get out of here while I'm still alive, and I'm gonna say it one more time. We are Georgia Southern. Our colors are blue and white. We call ourselves the Bald Eagles. We call our offense the Georgia Power Company, and that's a terrific name for an offense. Our snap count is "rate, hike". We practice on the banks of Beautiful Eagle Creek and that's in Statesboro, Georgia--the gnat capital of America. Our weekends begin on Thursday. The co-eds outnumber the men 3 to 2, they're all good looking and they're all rich. And folks, you just can't beat that, and you just can't beat Georgia Southern. And you ain't seen nothin yet!!"
