I like how the one guy apparently forgot to bring a jersey to the photo-op, and just decided that wearing shoulder pads was good enough.

That's the kind of finishing attitude that you like to see.

Good news, your school is mildly relevant within the city in which it is located.

Now comes the hurdle of becoming relevant outside the metro-area.

State got just as many mentions as "that guy from TBS" while Tech and UGA dominated the conversation. They probably only put a picture of State on there because it was too expensive to pay UGA's or Tech's licensing fees. Nice job earning honorable mention in your home town.

I totally called your response. I've already explained why state is the cover of a women's magazine, its too expensive to pay schools that actually have an image.

Here, I'll play this round. Let's go over your "aggregate" numbers a bit, oh bright one.

First of all, let's ignore the fact that only a complete dumb@$$ would compare a 40-second laser show stint of a school's fight song to the main story of a monthly magazine, but we'll just let that one slide as I honestly can't expect any better from someone affiliated with Southern. Of course, if playing a school fight song provides such tremendous exposure to a program, GSU is well ahead of Southern in that department since we've been airing daily commercials of season ticket info with our fight song in the background on 680 the Fan, which has literally millions of people tune in on monthly basis.

But back to the laser show. So you say roughly 800,000 watch the laser show ever year. Ok. Southern's fight song has been part of the laser show, what, 3 years max according to one of your posters? So ignoring the fact that you are fighting for people's attention by being sandwiched in-between other school's fight songs, not to mention Jock Jams (LMAO!), you would at the very most, have had about 2.4 million people see the Southern fight song. Our 680 the Fan and 790 the Zone commercials and Curry radio interviews in the last 3 months alone dwarf that beyond discussion.

But going back to the Atlanta Magazine. There are roughly 35,000 subscriptions circulating in the Metro Atlanta area. This doesn't even take into account how many times this magazine gets read by people in the households, or lobbies of businesses like doctors, lawyers, etc., or even how many people pass by or pick up a copy for a quick read at kiosks, grocery stores or the busiest airport in the country. Then, of course, there is this thing called the internet, where the Atlanta magazine gets hundreds of thousands of hits every month online, where people can not only see pictures, but read meaningful info about a program as opposed to watch a laser beaming on a granite mountain.

So thank you for playing the "aggregate" game, but if you don't mind, next time use a better sample size, or you know, maybe some common sense.

Look, you tell yourself whatever you need to say to cope with the fact that Georgia State University is on the front cover of the Atlanta Magazine Football Issue. Really, whatever works. If you can't comprehend that being on the cover of a magazine (we are the main story of the entire issue for crying out loud) warrants more prominence than a couple of small captions of others schools, then there really is not much I can do for you.

And of course you already know my response. What else is there to do but laugh out loud and call people out on their stupidity on this board? I mean, it's not like Southern fans post anything other than the typical MARTA/bullet-proof vests/homeless/Atlanta sucks comments.

Not heart huh? You would think Atlanta Commuter College would offer a typing class.


A magazine about the Atlanta area has a football issue and is covering a school starting football for the first time and that school is located in Atlanta....holy crap that is the craziest thing ever, I would never expect that to happen. It's about as crazy as the Statesboro Herald or the Savannah Morning News having articles about us.

Kudos on that. I'm being serious. A cover on ESPN mag is something significant ... even if it ends up being a regional cover ... that is more to what should be your target audience.

The key is sustaining that sort of coverage. Otherwise, it is flash-in-the-pan.

Georgia Southern has had several multi-page articles in SportsIllustrated as far back as 1981 ... nothing recent of course, because in the last four years we've done nothing to be relevant. We'll see if that changes with our new staff in place. Maybe it will, maybe it won't.

I suspect that the AJC will probably have front page coverage for state football, at least in the Sports section, on your opening day game ... probably with a photo or two.

Compare your opening day coverage to what you get on the third Saturday in October, and that will be a better bellweather of the coverage you can expect week in and week out. My guess is that ESPN covers aren't going to be a frequent occurrence for state football.

All kidding aside, I read the Atlanta Magazine article last night and was shocked at the level of research the writer did (They article is actually called the F word which was what football was called under the former administration as in forbidden to be mentioned in the Prez' presence....seriously) as well as the high rollers Downtown who have donated $$$ and/or purchased season tickets including one former mayor, a congressman, a senator and the current Lt Guv. That's not to mention the CEOs. So sustaining it will be important because this level of person is investing on the ground level but expecting big things.

lmaoIt's time for me to let y'all in on a little secret. The recent covers, both Atlanta Magazine and ESPN are the result of editorial IOU's. Here's what happened:

Atlanta had an Journalism convention (I don't remember the name of it, something like Writing Wrongs or something stupid like that) back in January at the World Congress Center. The editor of Atlanta invited the editor of ESPN to a round of golf at the Golf Club of Georgia. They hired a caddy, who happened to be a Georgia State grad, one of their most successful in history, to date - believe it or not, he has actually held a job for 22 years in a row!!!! Congrats, Georgia State! Back to the story.....

So, on the 13th hole, the editors made a $10,000 bet on the score on this particular hole. Well, the caddie, seeing his opportunity to strike it rich, decides to get in on the bet. He tells the players that they will both 3 putt on the hole (he knew the green was particularly difficult on this hole). As it turned out, both players triple bogeyed and three putted. The caddie won the bet.

So, in order to try to avoid giving the caddie five grand each, they offered to put the caddie's college football team on their covers in an issue this year. The caddie didn't know that Ga State had a football team and refused, wanting instead a chance to audition for the new TP for my BungHole - A Beavis and ButtHead Reunion movie coming out this fall. The editors convinced him that they had no influence in the cinema industry, finally explaining the difference between "editor" and "director". Furthermore, they whipped out their Blackberry's and proved to the caddie that GA State did indeed have a football team. Although the caddie didn't really care, they were able to convince him that the covers were worth enough to cover the ten grand debt. So, he reluctantly agreed.

The two editors could sense the caddy's disappointment during the remainder of the round and felt bad for him. They each tipped him a dollar and bought him some popcorn and a Coke at the clubhouse, and the caddy felt much better afterwards, so it all worked out in the end.

So, that's how it happened.

The two editors could sense the caddy's disappointment during the remainder of the round and felt bad for him. They each tipped him a dollar and bought him some popcorn and a Coke at the clubhouse, and the caddy felt much better afterwards, so it all worked out in the end.

So, that's how it happened.

All kidding aside, I read the Atlanta Magazine article last night and was shocked at the level of research the writer did (They article is actually called the F word which was what football was called under the former administration as in forbidden to be mentioned in the Prez' presence....seriously) as well as the high rollers Downtown who have donated $$$ and/or purchased season tickets including one former mayor, a congressman, a senator and the current Lt Guv. That's not to mention the CEOs. So sustaining it will be important because this level of person is investing on the ground level but expecting big things.

Cagle went to Ga Southern and walked on the football team before an injury put him on the sidelines. I am sure he is doing his "political duty" by supporting the new team the 1st game, but that is the last you will see of him. Besides, aren't season tickets $70 bucks a year?......He gets credit for helping the program and it cost less than a dinner in Buckhead. Big political points on the cheap for Cagle with the Ga State crowd. lol! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casey_Cagle

It's time for me to let y'all in on a little secret. The recent covers, both Atlanta Magazine and ESPN are the result of editorial IOU's. Here's what happened:

Atlanta had an Journalism convention (I don't remember the name of it, something like Writing Wrongs or something stupid like that) back in January at the World Congress Center. The editor of Atlanta invited the editor of ESPN to a round of golf at the Golf Club of Georgia. They hired a caddy, who happened to be a Georgia State grad, one of their most successful in history, to date - believe it or not, he has actually held a job for 22 years in a row!!!! Congrats, Georgia State! Back to the story.....

So, on the 13th hole, the editors made a $10,000 bet on the score on this particular hole. Well, the caddie, seeing his opportunity to strike it rich, decides to get in on the bet. He tells the players that they will both 3 putt on the hole (he knew the green was particularly difficult on this hole). As it turned out, both players triple bogeyed and three putted. The caddie won the bet.

So, in order to try to avoid giving the caddie five grand each, they offered to put the caddie's college football team on their covers in an issue this year. The caddie didn't know that Ga State had a football team and refused, wanting instead a chance to audition for the new TP for my BungHole - A Beavis and ButtHead Reunion movie coming out this fall. The editors convinced him that they had no influence in the cinema industry, finally explaining the difference between "editor" and "director". Furthermore, they whipped out their Blackberry's and proved to the caddie that GA State did indeed have a football team. Although the caddie didn't really care, they were able to convince him that the covers were worth enough to cover the ten grand debt. So, he reluctantly agreed.

The two editors could sense the caddy's disappointment during the remainder of the round and felt bad for him. They each tipped him a dollar and bought him some popcorn and a Coke at the clubhouse, and the caddy felt much better afterwards, so it all worked out in the end.

So, that's how it happened.
I actually live in the neighborhood where the Golf Club of Georgia is located in Alpharetta and there is no way they would hire a caddie that graduated from a low-life commuter college such as Georgia State. Possibly a valet, but not a caddie.

What is ironic about the idiocy of this story is 1) the number of golfers we have on the PGA Tour currently and 2) The number of corporate leadership level executives we have graduated who are obviously not caddies.

Now a degree from University of South Georgia...now that screams caddie, parking lot attendant or Wal Mart shift manager.

True story. A buddy of mine bought a house in East Atlanta about 5 years ago, just a few blocks down from the Flat Iron, etc... Crack heads lived just across the street. He had to keep a gun nearby in his house at all times because his house was nearly broken into at least once a year. So, yeah, East Atlanta Village is a great place to live.

Georgia State has a good Executive MBA program which is where all these "CEO's" come from that you talk about, but the undergrad program at State isn't all that.

What it lacks is notoriety which we will get in due course with a shiny new football team, media coverage and doubling the number of dorms by 2015. Look, we're two schools going in opposite directions. Conventional wisdom 20 years ago was that by now you guys would have expanded your stadium to 50,000 seats and be playing FBS. Hell, even I assumed that. You didn't and you aren't. Conventional wisdom 10 years ago was that GSU would never EVER have football especially with a president who banned the mention of the sport in his presence to the point that it is still jokingly referred to as The F-Word. But here we are and we have a new Prez and AD and new head coaches all over the athletic department who get it. Central Atlanta Progress, the Capital Club members and Atlanta Convention and Visitor's Bureau want this and we all know they always get what they want. (see Olympics, 1996). So we all know where this is headed. Just chew on this for a bit; Of the last say 5 or 6 programs that have moved to FBS, who has had MORE economic, geographic, media and in place infrastructure advantages than GSU? I have been thinking about this for a couple of weeks. USF and UCF maybe in that they are larger but they had roughly the same amount of students as us when they started and both are in smaller cities. Certainly not FIU an FAU in that they did not have a close by top flight NFL/BCS Bowl Stadium and are in a permanently economically depressed metro area. UAB or Troy? Not a chance. Memphis? We have a better stadium, coach AND media market than when they move up. I am running out of teams here. How about the ones due to move up? UTSA? I give us the edge in alumni size, stadium and media market. USA? Not even close in any category. Am I missing anyone?

So the question is not who do we think we are or even why would we move up? It should be , why would we NOT move up? Nothing else seems to make any sense. I can tell you one thing, if we do not move up by 2013 or 2014 we will not have the backing of alumni, movers and shakers and Atlanta civic groups in 2015. THAT you can take to the bank.

Georgia Tech doesnt fill their stadium because they have no populist appeal. I never see kids downtown in SE or SW Atlanta wearing GT gear. NEVER. You do see a lot of UGA gear however and we're talking about blocks from their campus. There is just the slightest hint of elitism among Tech grads and fans that prevents them from having the following of a Georgia, University of Miami, Texas or Ohio State. So i am definitely not worried about GT. When I see some GT flags in Lithonia or Douglasville or Rome or Calhoun then I might think they are expanding their base. I mean, who attends UGA games? Everyone? Now who attends Tech games? Alumni? Students? Anyone else? Nope

You ARE referring to YOUR administration right? Because ours just *cough cough* ahem, sidesteps the question in order not to piss off the CAA. But we know what happened to the last administration that opposed the alumni and business.


You guys are getting trolled ridiculously hard by posters who have admitted that the administration has displayed no desire to move to FBS. They're simply trolling you for fun.

Give it up.

There's no question that ours has no desire to do so. However, it's been stated by your own posters (and you just clarified it again) that yours doesn't either.

Now, I'm not saying they should, because it requires a large financial commitment and a new team should spend around 4-5 years in FCS regardless.

Whomever stated that is misinformed because every interview I have seen or heard its not an emphatic no but rather the classic media sidestep. In fact our prez let it slip a year ago in Tampa at an alumni meeting before he was obviously told to bring it down a notch and not mention it. Look I love football at all levels. I watch it all including CFL. But the idea that FCS football will make it in downtown Atlanta vs GT, UGA and the Falcons is suicidal. I would rather be Div III or FCS non scholly than go though the nightmare of trying to schedule GSU vs James madison in the Dome while GT vs Miami is 20 blocks up Northside Dr on the same afternoon.

Most of have been around a long time and we do not want another episode of what happened after Lefty left. We went 29-5 and beat Wisconsin and nobody cared because frankly this city is too big with too much to do. Nobody was driving downtown to see us play Stetson or Samford. If people are going to drive to the Dome from Stone Mountain Alpaharetta and Fayetteville in 2014 it will not be because we're playing Wofford or Maine.

Try that commute at 8:00 a.m. on a Wed. once school is back in session an then try leaving work at 4:30 to return.
You are slow. I get that. You let me know when the Braves have an 8:00 am game on a Wednesday and I'll make the commute for you. ;)

And youre an illiterate. Most Alpharettans are 9 to 5 'ers as if it bares mentioning at all.

I had JUST STATED that I work for the Braves and only make the commute to Turner Field when there is a home game. At what point did we begin discussing "most Alpharettans" commute times? It's called reading comprehension. You should look into it.

YOU mentioned your commute to refute my contention that GA 400 traffic is horrible. YOU do not have a typical commute. YOU do not commute at rush hour Monday through Friday by your own admission. So YOU look into reading comprehension because NOTHING you say makes a bit of sense.

Did I...did I just have to explain that???? Holy Cow!
