re: Game time for Georgia Southern - makersmark1
Did we have a football team in 2012? I went to the games and stayed until 0:00. I drive 225 one way so leaving is not a consideration. I stayed and watched the carnage. I did give up season tickets that year so I guess they did make me quit. I just stub hub it now for a few games a year. I check...

re: Starting 11 on offense. Right now - makersmark1
