    To add onto this, every Thursday during football season, r/cfb has a thread specifically dedicated to trash talk that starts around lunchtime and ends up with THOUSANDS of comments by the end of the day so trash talking is definitely not going out of favor. And a lot of it is absolutely hilarious and well thought out as well as cliched in some cases. That's the direction things are headed. Check it out for yourself.

    Message boards really are falling to the wayside. The community here is probably one of the best/strongest you'll find for a school at our level that has lasted as long as it has. But we also probably have one of the most active social media communities as well...which has its positives and negatives. However quite a few people even on this board would not even know about that because they haven't kept up with the change in mediums (which is ok...sometimes we just don't care).

    But as a younger generation gets exposed to Georgia Southern and to the message board community, they're not going to follow the mold of the old timers that were around when message boards were the only social media type environment.

    This. And you'd be surprised how many GS fans are there and participating. Best part is it's all inclusive of everyone... except maybe GState.

Most G5 folks have settled for their place in the "big pond", P5's of course can't be bothered with G5's . I admire the ACC, only G5 Conferance that is putting up a "fight" vs the "Big Boys"
    I still lurk bud.

    And follow Georgia Southern as I have no conflict of interest anymore.

    But I've pretty much given up on AGS and most FCS internet forums because I've come to learn that they aren't worth the time and they aren't nearly as friendly/welcoming as they used to be. I could give you a whole spiel. NDSU and MVFC fans vicariously living through their accomplishments have ruined the FCS internet and the expanded field makes the playoffs more of a regional showdown where the same 5 teams get homefield advantage and semifinal appearances.

    To be completely honest with you, I'm convinced Georgia southern would have won the FCS national title in 2014 had they stayed down. But I would also love my team's (Wofford) success measured up to winning a national title every year. It's an unpopular opinion for FCS types but I would rather aim to win 9 to 11 games a year and play 1-2 postseason games. It's so much less exhausting than going on a playoff run where you win 2 games, play 3, and still feel like the season was a failure because you didn't even finish in the final four or so. 24 team playoff is arguably more demoralizing than 40 bowl games.

    YT, WTH has Josh Conklin done with your offense? 20 passes and a loss against SCSU?

    I can't tell if I'm in denial or just being very insightful, but I think he treated it like a scrimmage, expecting us to blow their brakes off so he went buck-wild throwing the ball. then when that didn't work we reverted back to our old playbook, only threw 7 passes in the second half with the major problem being 3 of them being picks. Too little, too late. I hope SC State makes the playoffs so we can have a rematch.

    Wofford's moving away from the option, but our OC is an option guy. I agree that we need to move away from it long-term (our talent is way better than it used to be and the problem with the option is the inability to make a play when you need it, if that makes sense) but SC State was a cluster----. But we'll be fine. As bad as things are, Conklin isn't as bad as Van Goober or Tyson Summers.

    If y'all ever need to replace your OC with an option OC that's good with the gun, I think Wade Lang would be perfect for ya. I'm not saying that because I'm disappointed with his coaching ability, it's just that we're trying to do something different than what he has experience with. I think his system would work a lot better with GSU in the Sun Belt, trying to win 9-11 games a year as opposed to the FCS, where no option team since Georgia Southern left can reliably score 30 in the playoffs.

    I like Wade Lang a lot. He was a big time innovator 10-12 years ago. He’s a bit long in the tooth for GS at this point, though.

    I would have been happy hiring Ayers/Lang in 2005, 2007, and 2013. They could have won a boatload of games here.

    If we keep the ball off the turf, I think we can win a close one. But our away games have been shaky the past 2 years, and likely starting our backup QB does have me worried.

    I'm not impressed with anything they have done, and I don't think our team will be intimidated by them.
