    So what you're telling me is 52 of 65 P5 teams (80%) are willing to travel to G5 stadiums and 48 of 65 P5s (74%) are willing to do straight-up Home & Homes with G5 teams, AND every G5 team except Georgia ****ing Southern has hosted a P5 in their stadium, but for some reason we can't pull this off because we're in a small town and run the option. I'm sorry, but that's bull****.

    I just got pissed off making this list.
    Your list basically proves my point. I see a lot of in state match ups and big city venues.. But continue your rant. You people just want to force a P5 to come to the boro. Again give me a reason those schools GS over all the others listed.

    Number of option teams that aren't US service academies with P5 1:1s scheduled: 0.

    I am shocked Alabama is traveling to USF, just because its Bama. We'll see if USC keeps the return game with App. Kansas seems to be our best bet based on the schools they have and will play. Other than that Most look to be P5 going into big recruiting areas, big cities, or short distance travel. Recruiting is convenient for.GS, but the boro and os not a hotbed, not sure if Savannah is that good. Our coaches can just take a 4hr drive radius pretty easy for recruiting, but visiting coaches want recruits directly in the area hence the lure of big cities.
    Proximity plays a big part for alumni and ticket sales. GT would be our only hope for this scenario. Not likely though.

    I can't think of any that have the Option label tattooed on them like GS does. A lot of teams will mix in the option, but does anyone else really use it so prominently? Can't think of any. Lets just say the Option offense isn't helping our chances to attract a P5 or even G5 teams.

    That may have been true(ish) when we were a veer-based offense with that style of OL play.

    What we do now doesn’t concern anybody.

    Based on what? And why didn't UNM get a P5 home game scheduled while Bob DeBesse was there?

    Based on the fact that we’re not using veer blocking techniques. THAT was what opponents always complained about.

    As long as we’re a zone-blocking team, why would defenses care whether we run the ball all the time? I mean, virtually every offense in college football runs IZ and read-option plays. They just don’t do it 80-85% of the time like we do. Are they really concerned that we use our H-Back different from everybody else?

    What those P5 teams didn’t want was their defenders trying to dodge blocks below the waist by offensive linemen. That, however, is no longer fundamental to our offense.

    +1000, NO ONE fears GS, time for us to remove our blue colored glasses.
