2. GSU AD Sam Baker looks ahead to upcoming season

[“I had one gentleman — we were talking about it a couple years ago — and from what he was talking about, he thought we ought to be in the ACC,” Baker said. “Well you can’t have a rational conversation when somebody’s talking in those terms. My feeling is, I want us to be the very best we can be at whatever level we’re at when that decision’s made. But right now, we’re competing for an FCS championship. I want to make sure that when the decision is made, that it isn’t one of those things like they told me at (Louisiana) Monroe when they went (to Division I-A). Everybody got them to go, and when they went, (the fans) left and went to LSU. They’re sitting there with a half-empty stadium and struggling. I don’t want us to get to that state. I want us to have a program that can win.”]
