Good morning, Ducks. This Saturday our boys take a break from Fingergate to play an actual football game against Georgia State. The early point spread lists us as a 40+ point favorite. I think it’s too much. We are facing an experienced and, frankly, violent team.
As is our custom, FishDuck.com researched the daylights out of Georgia State to offer you some insight you won’t otherwise find. Georgia State is located in Atlanta and has just over 32,000 students. Like most colleges, the students speak highly of the experience. The following is an actual review from a current student:
“Staff is rude. Absolutely horrendous. Not helpful at all. From the advisment (sic) office to admissions office they’re all the same. If you’re thinking about attending don’t expect any guidance or help from them you’ll be figuring it out all on your own”
Hmm, I guess that explains the somewhat cryptic set of official school mottos:
A quick look at the school website shows they are asking some of the tough questions. “Who is killing America’s bats?
Georgia State plays in the Sun Belt Conference alongside such opposition as Appalachian State, Troy, South Alabama, and …
Georgia State offers degree programs in 250 separate disciplines. These include (and I’m not making this up) three-dimensional sculpture.
By all accounts, Georgia State is excited to be coming to Autzen. Their fans, a more realistic people, are less than confident.
Go Ducks! Punish the Panthers!
