How, you might ask, can we celebrate this annual extravaganza? With polls. Specifically the pre-season USA Today Coaches Poll! Wherein: UGA is ranked #12, Georgia State is first (when sorted worst to first) and Tech and Southern are not ranked.

Other takeaways: if you lose your bowl, your starting QB, don’t even play in your conference championship you will be ranked above a team that beat you and is returning almost all of its talent (Alabama #2 and Auburn #5), you can get ranked for being a worse team than you were last year when you were un-ranked (UNC) and despite having a great coach and good talent coming back, you can be un-ranked (Duke).

Watch out for Clemson. Yes they lost their offensive weapons but the Tigers are better at every position than they were last year. UGA is in for a rude surprise.

Oh, and your beloved Georgia State University Panthers start the Football Bowl Subdivision season on August 27 at the Georgia Dome against the Abilene Christian University whatevers. I will see you all there…

I am just glad that we can finally settle this The Six Time National Championship GSU vs GSU discussion on the football field.

Ed August 5, 2014 at 9:05 am

You’re not in Kansas anymore. Those “national championships” don’t mean a thing up here.

Ed August 5, 2014 at 9:05 am

Also–the Internet has already decided.

Lawton Sack August 5, 2014 at 2:33 pm

Nah. We’ll just settle in on the football field. Oh, and we have as many FBS wins as y’all do.
