Listened to coach's show earlier this week and Coach Summers seemed to be pointing to travel concerns and how we would spend Sat night before coming home Sunday and practicing to get ready for Thursday's game. Better be careful. Season could go down the drain Saturday night.
    I remember Fritz talking about two years ago how the team didn't get back into Statesboro until 7:00 in the morning. No need to make those players have to try and do that and be thrown off for the rest of the week. Especially with a game on Thursday.

    The Sun Belt should really be ashamed of itself for sending our team across the country before the game against App. They knew it was going to be a Thursday night game. There is no reason they should have let this happen. This is a competition issue, it could very easily cause academic issues and this is a player safety issue.

    I've spent some time in deserts. The lack of moisture in the air is difficult to acclimate to. A high desert adds to it. However, the Eagles will soar! It's a 0200 game for me, so I'll catch it on the ESPN3 replay. Looking forward to see the turnaround that CTS builds on. Last week was a game to build on. Go Eagles!

    This is especially true since App ST has a home game with Idaho

    Our schedule oddities are more due to our late OOC game with Ole Miss and the fact it lands in the middle of Sun Belt play, imo.

    If you look past this year in future schedules we have OOC games in the first third of the season which will afford us greater flexibility in scheduling balance.

    It was inevitable with midweek games and seven road trips we would have some short weeks. It could have been much worse, actually having the Wednesday game was an advantage we probably didn't take full advantage of, having additional prep time for 2 teams instead of the one we would have had if it was a traditional off week.

    Fortunately we only need extra time to work on perfecting our punt game. Making our opponents have a long field is the best chance we have to keep games close. We might have a "blind squirrel" play here and there and could get 5 wins.
