Greetings, all –
Hope this finds you celebrating a memorable night in Georgia State history. It was something I’ll remember for awhile. Six quick takes as we move forward.
1. Star Jackson has some work cut out for him.
Starter Drew Little did his job well and earned kudos from coach Bill Curry after the game. He finished 13-for-17 for 135 yards with two touchdown passes and, perhaps most importantly, no turnovers. GSU put up 20 points in the first half, 10 of those points coming on drives of 59 yards or more. For the most part, he kept the team out of bad spots and didn’t look like the game was too big for him.
Jackson, who is the No. 2 behind Little, was benched for the first half for being late to the team bus on Wednesday going to the hotel. Curry decided to not play him the entire game, using No. 3 Kelton Hill instead.
If I had to guess, I’d say Jackson will end up the starter eventually, but Little isn’t going to make it easy for him.
2. It was 41-7, but let’s not go
