Post

Well, how could this year get more weird. How about out first game being affected by a hurricane.

Exactly, projected path goes very near Statesboro!

Well…. today's presser has been cancelled. Sally is expected to be in Georgia on Friday and trek beyond the South Carolina border by Saturday. But, it should be a non-factor as Sally will be a tropical depression at that point.

Now, remember that FAU tests players for COVID three times a week. Moreover, Georgia Southern had multiple players inactive last week because of COVID protocols.

As of around 12:30, we can confirm that test results were given today.

Practice wasn't necessarily cancelled, as the team worked out in the weight room instead.

We'll be sure to update y'all when the athletic department schedules the next presser.

Looks like our team got hit pretty hard with COVID. Hope the infected ones are doing okay. Get well soon!

Let's hope for the best. Hearing they're still in the weight room is a good sign…

Revolution- n. A large amount of change in a short amount of time.   FAU- n. The place where tomorrow begins.

Too bad. This isn't going away. Somehow, someway , we need to figure out how to keep moving forward with this thing. The only good news is the kids are more likely to have no or minimal symptoms. But a posative is a posative. I don't have an answer.

Wow. After opening at FAU -6, the line has now shifted to either a toss-up or Georgia Southern -1/-1.5.

Gee… last time a line shifted like this we won 52-28 against a team that was ranked most of the year.

Can history repeat itself?

It is so much harder then doing this the first game with a new coach.

At least with the replacements vs SMU, you had weeks of being in the system.


GSU's secondary and oline appears to be weak and hopefully, we can exploit those, but we we take more losses on the D we could be in for a long afternoon.
