Georgia State game day blog

Greetings, all

I’m about to head out the door for the dome. Let me know if you’re out there. I didn’t do much of a job keeping the blog updated last week, for which I apologize.

As we get to kickoff, give me a prediction.

I hope Coach Curry plays Star Jackson because his athleticism could be the difference between winning and losing. Go Panthers!

I hope Coach puts the best players on the field. We’ll see!

It’s gonna be bad today for Ga State. You guys should really know where you’re program stands after today. I’ll pull for guys the rest of the season…just not today.

welcome, JSU
at 12:55, kinda sparse in the dome. i’d say maybe 750 in the student section, maybe 5,000 (a very rough guess) altogether.

JSU QB getting all sorts of time to pass, marchign down field. 1-10, gsu 11.

JSU 3, GSU 0. 13 plays, 69 yards. but GSU after JSU 1st down from GSU 11-yard line. Could be worse. midway first quarter. the run defense looks a lot better, but Marques Ivory is getting a lot of time to throw.

GSU has got to schedule around Saturday FB. They need to look at Friday or Thursday night games. I’m an alum and fan, but I just dont think GSU can compete yet with teams that have been around for a hundred years. The crowd looks terrible on TV.

Nice 1st qtr for GSU…JSU looks dismal…no running game, and we waited too late to bring #11 Blanchard in the game. Gotta get the big head deflated a bit guys!!!!

JSU, I’d guess 10,000, maybe? i can’t see all of the lower bowl.
end of first quarter, 7-3. (darren mccray ran a reverse 41 yards for touchdown.)

The big head does everyone in. I hope you guys don’t take your asprin and keep your head inflated as this would be a great win.

Does anyone have a link to the game? It’s kinda hard to view while living up in New England.

Go State!

touchdown, JSU. Marques Ivory 3rd-and-goal pass for score. 10-7, JSU. GSU D is making work, but can’t get off the field. They’ve been on the field for 24 plays already. Panthers need to grind some clock here.

Just heard JSU has had the ball 12+ minutes and we’ve only had it less than 2 minutes so far. I like that we score quick but feel the clock management will wear out the defense. Let’s go State!

Drew Little looks way, way better than last week. his pass to Bo Schlechter was a dart against tight coverage. Schlechter’s first career catch by the way after switching from qb.

3 and out for GSU. that’s not what the defense was hoping for. plus the field got flipped.

Whistles being blown all over the place! Some Zebras were spotted in the stands! It sounds like everyone wants to have a say in the matter for GSU Football!

If keeping up is all we need to prove ourselves were not doing badly

Hows that student section? Seems pretty spacious on TV….Hows it look live?

I like how we’re playing but need to get a scoring drive going again.

@itsmeagain – who are you rooting for? GSU or JSU?

@GSUAlum – do you have a web link for the game?

Ken Sugiura

I agree, itsmeagain (who i trust is for GSU).
ALUM – i’d say it’s kind of like last week. maybe 3,000 and I think I’m being generous.

GSUALUM

No, I’m watching on TV.

I just do not get why the students are not showing up. If I was still in school I would be there, and I would guess that most of my friends would be too.

i find it odd, also. maybe not a lot of students are football fans or GSU fans, specifically.

I agree with you GSUAlum. If I were in Atlanta I’d be at the game.

this is kind of cool, though. Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt, Bill Curry’s quarterback at Tech, has one free weekend from now until the end of December. He’s spending it here. He’s in Curry’s box.

I really think the Thursday night game is the way to go. Less competition.

The more i go to these games the more i realise that it’s gonna be a probably next year before we get the students really into this. But as a team I think were definitely improving. Btw, jsu’s band is ridiculous

That’s impressive Ken. One of the many reasons why Curry is the right guy to get GSU off the ground.

@GSUAlum – we need to be better at our scheduling. Timing is limited for football reservations in Georgia so we have to improve.

Anybody have any photos of the game so far? Ken do you have any pictures you can post via twitter or an AJC Facebook accound?
