re: Keep our cupcakes in-state?
USC and Clemson both play at least one FCS school from S.C. every year. Such as Wofford, Furman, Citadel. There’s no problem with that setup. I believe it is S.C. law for them to do so because of the money benefits. Sometimes it’s about more as an institution than just football and I think this would be a good idea for Georgia school to do so too.

re: Keep our cupcakes in-state?
I'm one of those Silver Dawgs and I've never left a home game early

That's awesome.
I'm a platinum dawg this year, myself.

But you know who I'm talking about.
I myself dont go to enough games to leave early (2 to 4 a season... I've got to squeeze every minute I can out of athens while I'm there).

Plus. I love recruiting? Why would I not watch to see who is next off the bench?

I'd rather UGA play Ga Southern than Murray State. Only out of respect for Erk Russell plus its an in-state game.

Based on Deeprigs post, I agree.
Based on respect for Erk, no. The Georgia Southern fans are worse than tech fans with their disrespect for the dawgs and athens (I know there are a few grads who pull for the dawgs... but the ones who attended the 2015 game were not the same dawg fans)

They have a huge chip on their shoulder and they dont wear it well. UMass is FBS. I'd take their fans over Ga Southern every day.

Really? I figured that since Erk was a part of UGA and then when to start GA Southern FB, the two teams would have some respect for each other.

They do.

Don't let random online anecdotes (however true they may be to the poster) sway your opinion. But that's just my opinion, as a random online anecdotalist.

re: Keep our cupcakes in-state?
I know a lot of Ga Southern grads who are dawg fans (my cousin has a ring with Erk, and he grew up bleeding red and black).

But the fans at the games the past 2 times they have visited are not those fans. They are only in 1 corner of the stadium. So it isnt the biggest deal. But I spent some time in their section and it was very disappointing. They hated everything UGA/Athens.
Like I said... give me UMass fans. Give me Vandy fans. Give me South Carolina fans. Give me Missouri fans. GA Southern fans were just wrong. Sorry for throwing the thread out of whack off topic.

Why do we need to prop them up? They aren’t having any issues finding those games.

No they don't.Though Clemson has done it more frequently than South Carolina.There isn't any type of law that requires either to play in-state FCS schools.

I imagine it's a matter of economics and courtesy when they do schedule those schools.

You honestly think a playoff committee gives a damn that we beat vandy, Tennessee, or Missouri? The only 9th conference game that matters is in Atlanta.

DumbSonny, I never said anything about what a committee would or wouldn't think about a 9th game. Not one thing. I'm coming at this from the standpoint of a logical college football fan.

But, if you want to bring up the committee and say a 9th game wouldn't matter...…..well, as usual, that's dumb too. Real dumb. Because it absolutely could matter. Especially when the SEC is down currently like it is.

In fact, having 9 conference games would significantly increase the odds of getting two SEC games into the playoff again at some point. Dumbo.

You can get all 13 teams. But there are crappy teams each year. About 4 of them. And there are bad teams that can't get a winning conference record. Probably 5 more. If you can't comprehend how average, below average, and above average works, replying to you makes no sense.

DumbSonny, Let me try this one more time.

You are claiming that much of the SEC is made up of "cupcakes". While simultaneously arguing that we should keep "cupcakes" on the schedule.

You see? You are arguing that adding a 9th SEC game would mean we'd just be playing a "cupcake" while arguing that playing "cupcakes" is the greatest thing in the world!!

According to you, we don't need to play a "cupcake games" because we should be playing "cucpcake games" instead.


Ha ha. So dumb.

re: Keep our cupcakes in-state?
Simple argument.

We can schedule whomever we please. Notre dame, clemson, murray state.

Or we can let a federation tell us who to play. We are always better off retaining control. You never give up control without something of significant value in return.

These are basic, fundamental principles that you of all people should understand.

I like Smart and even McGarity picking our opponents better than being rotated by the SEC to play more Arkansas and Ole Miss games.

Our fanbase travels. We should be sending them to more exotic locations (Austin, Madison, blacksberg, etc)

You've stated your argument.
How long should I wait for your proof?

Do you want to count the number of playoff games played by conferences with 8 games versus the number of playoff games played by conferences 9+?

I will wait.

Love the name calling by the way. It suits you like sand in the vag.

re: Keep our cupcakes in-state?
Time Out: Notice how the fake news contingent of deepacosta9 and maddowsonny are trying to use children and bench riders and etc to distort and distract on this subject. But peel back their transparent effort to appeal to a sucker's emotions.....and it's clear they are just trying to protect and maintain the corrupt status quo. Fake, fake fake news people.



A question for Logical CFB Fans though:

Q: When the CFB season ends, have you ever sighed in relief and been glad that it was finally over??

A: Of course not.

It flies by in the blink of an eye. Faster and faster ever year....

So, why not find ways to improve upon the schedule for the very short and brief time that we have?!!! To chock it full of better ingredients!

The fake newsers want you to focus on the three poor children that won't get to see UGA's fifth string against Muray State, but the reality is that adding a 9th conference game adds SEVEN TOTAL NEW CONFERENCE GAMES every year. For your viewing pleasure. Seven games! Seven. Spread out over the season. 7 with history. 7 old/new rivalries. 7 more chances for epic facemelters. What's not to love?.

To summarize, It's past time for a 9th SEC game.
And if you can't see this, then your probably a communist.

the best outcome to me is winning, period. Adding lesser teams increases your number of wins. That's fun. If we played Texas last weekend instead of Murray state, sure we'd be more excited overall but our chances at adding a loss go up exponentially. In this day and age you are pretty much out of the title race with 2 losses. Considering we have the greatest dynasty of all time to look forward to in Decmeber each year for the SECCG, it doesn't make rational sense to me to increase the chances of adding another loss prior to then.

SonnyAndersonCooper,

Nice try. But, we can still schedule those games with a 9th conference game.

re: Keep our cupcakes in-state?
Our poor children are 5 stars and high 4 stars.

But who cares about watching the freshmen and redshirt freshmen play, right?

We have 2 P5 OOC games this season. In the distant future, we have 3.
How much do you value home games? Scheduling 4 home and home OOC leaves us with 5 to 6 home games in a season.

The reality is that any team willing to play in your home stadium without a return visit is a cupcake. You can't have home only games without cupcakes. This quest of Jefferson is impossible. The best we can do is retain control of our schedule and do what we currently do (put together the best mixture of home only and home and homes in the country)
