You gotta love this Gridiron Now post that’s all Danger, Will Robinson! about Georgia’s opener against Appy State for burying the lede in the last paragraph.
The 2007 Appalachian State team that knocked off Michigan went on to win a third consecutive FCS title, helping catapult the program toward FBS status. Since starting the transition to college football’s highest level in 2013, the Mountaineers have yet to ambush another Power Five conference team, losing at Georgia in 2013, in a return to Michigan in 2014, at Clemson in 2015 and to Tennessee and Miami last season. [Emphasis added.]
Hey, look, Nicholls gave Georgia a game last year, any given Saturday, yada, yada, yada… I get it. But to pretend that a Sun Belt team that’s yet to beat a P5 program presents an existential crisis because of a ten-year old upset is really straining to make a mountain out of a molehill. Just ask Georgia’s 2013 team.
