  1. I was at that Georgia Southern game. First, and only, game I’ve ever pulled against Auburn. I was a 9 year old who had grown up attending Georgia Southern football games every Saturday in the fall. I think if the core of the 1989-90 National Championship teams had been around (and coached by Erk rather than Tim Stowers), GSU could have won that game. It should have been 24-0 GSU at the half, but our DB dropped a CLEAR pick-6, and Auburn kicked the FG to make it 17-3 before time ran out.

    I’ve maintained since then that I would always pull for Auburn because it would be worse for Auburn to lose than it would mean for Georgia Southern to win it while GSU was still FCS. With the transition being made, I just hope my two teams never play each other again.
