Y’all might have seen Lawton’s opus about the fake GSU (Georgia Southern). They’re making the trip up to Atlanta for a match of inter-collegiate varsity gridiron football on Saturday. Really, you can’t blame Lawton’s online enthusiasm. After all, Statesboro just got internet last year.
In case there’s any doubt which school is the real GSU, just consult the internet: we’ve got GSU.edu, they don’t. (Sorry, Grambling State!)
To help elucidate the difference, GSU created a couple hashtags #StateNotSouthern being one and the Orwellian #HateWeek. (For you Southern grads, that refers to “1984”. The book. Not the last year your threads were fashionable).
Speaking of the past, they keep harping on some “national championships” that they won. Of course no one thinks those are real championships and they were won in a division that doesn’t even exist anymore. I’m sure those will come in real handy for… something.
Southern’s confusion about their rightful place in the pecking order inspires about as much sympathy as one feels for Touchstone. But probably less.
And remind me please, which one of us had a perfect record last year? Oh yeah. GEORGIA STATE!
I say all this to say: I can’t wait for basketball season to begin. Go Panthers.
