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.
    Thanks, Rastabot!

    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.

    I like that prediction, but can we score 31 points against the Gophers and if so we have a kicker that can make 48 to 50 yard field goals which means GSU has a chance to win or go into over time if its a close game.

    The T-Option is the powerful ground game ever devised & the FLEX is the best way to run it.
    If I want your opinion & don't like it I'll tell you what it should be.

    We win by 10. We are better than Fresno St and SDST. Minnesota has bigger issues than we do.

    Iím not convinced Minnesota is a very good team. But on the other hand, Iím not convinced we are even a .500 team at this point.

    We definitely would in Paulson.

    I would love to see us do it on the road, but as a rule we are not great in road games.

    I didnít mention the coach. Relax you will be agreeing with me before the season is over.
