    yep, do what me and Old Fart(and soon to be pete) do, slam our privates in motor vehicle doors.

    Don't care for the shirts, but I think you're being a bit overly dramatic, here.

    First of all, it's not like Summers is Kevin Sumlin who has had some pretty good seasons and then has one bad season and people are mocking him. We're talking about an absolute turd of a coaching job.

    Second, where does the comment about Summers' family come from? I've got absolutely zero tolerance for anyone taking things out on a coach's family, but I don't see where that line is crossed, here.

    Third, I don't think any prospective head coach or Summers himself gives a crap if a couple of yahoos are wearing a shirt of his picture with a clown nose on it. If you can't handle jerk fans, not only should you not coach at Georgia Southern, you shouldn't coach pretty much anywhere in the FBS or any FCS school with a substantial fan base.
    Hey TK! Change the culture back!

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    POY. Talk about scheme or whatever you want as lacking but don’t publicly humiliate any player, coach or admin associated with our program. I’m not happy with field play but talk about that not the individuals.

    If your a Coach that would rather go to a program whose fan base and players don't expect to win every game then your a piss poor coach (No your not a coach at all) and a coach like that doesn't deserve to be at Ga. Southern. I can see Saban, Smart, Swinney, PJ, Malzahn, Fisher, Fritz or Monken thinking: "Gee I think I would like to coach there because you don't have to win there"

    I believe Sumlin was receiving death threats this year btw.

    IMO not winning "immediately and always," has absolutely nothing to do with whatever it is that TS is doing.

    And, just speculation here, but I seriously doubt his family is "continuously and mercilessly ridiculed publicly the entire time."

    That stuff comes with the territory when you work in the entertainment business

    Shut up. We get it. You are a student. You like the shotgun.

    Here is some truth. Our fans are no more or less embarrassing than any other school. No potential coach is making a career decision over two fat guys in T-Shirts.
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low
