    Default [GREATEST GAMES - MASTER THREAD]

    By now I'm sure everyone has seen that the first round of voting is underway in the tournament to determine the Greatest Game in the History of Eagle Football!

    The games were nominated by you, the GSUFans...fans, and I simply categorized them by the era in which they occurred, which seemed to make the most sense and worked out extremely well from a numbers standpoint.

    Here is the full bracket -



    I encourage everyone to visit all the pages, watch the games, review the stats, and make your vote! This thread will be updated once the polls finish this week.

    Special thanks to Klak for all the hard work in getting gatadb.com up and running and getting as much game footage as possible for everyone to watch through these last few weeks before football season!

    Round 2 begins today! 2 more weeks of voting to get down to our Sweet 16 of the Greatest Eagle Games! Thanks to everyone for contributing to the discussions and for voting. This will be the final round of 2 week voting, then we will move to a 1 week format as the field grows smaller and the matchups become harder. Updated bracket is shown below.

    As a reminder, visit www.gatadb.com to get all the details for the games, and even some video footage not linked in the posts (Quick-cuts, coaches shows, etc).

    Florida and the 2 bowl games in the same quarter of the bracket?

    I would suggest after this round seeding every remaining game 1 to 4 and having 1 versus 4 and 2 versus 3 matchups etc matchups for each of the 4 brackets.

    Example:

    1 seeds:
    1985 Furman
    1989 SFA
    2015 Bowling Green
    2013 Florida

    2 seeds:
    2018 Eastern Michigan
    1999 Youngstown State
    2000 Montana
    1986 Ark State

    3 seeds:
    2007 App State
    1990 Nevada
    1985 MTSU
    1999 UMass

    4 seeds:
    2005 Furman
    2010 App State
    2018 App State
    2014 ULM

    Depending on which ones make it.

    The way I originally structured the bracket was based on eras, so you had the 1985-1995, 1995-2001, 2002-2009, 2010+, and the quantity of games broke down evenly among those eras (16 per bracket). As a result, the bowl games and Florida all got lumped together, as well as the early Erk games (85 title, 86 title, 89 title, Hugo Bowl) that could all be considered greatest games. And then the 2002-2009 era was really lacking in games that were extremely significant to normal GS standards.

    Perhaps after this round I will look at a way of reseeding the games based on who makes it through. I just don't want to meddle too much in it now that it is going in an attempt to get a certain outcome. The larger point of the exercise was to give everyone some football to watch while leading up to camp starting

    Round 3 is underway - voting for the next rounds will only last for 1 week, so be sure to get your votes in! We are down to 16 games, and honestly every match-up is tough to choose. Enjoy!
