“No one wants to be that team…”

Is the Michigan upset a blessing or a curse for Appalachian State?

Well, put it this way.

“Well, I think the fact that the Michigan thing always gets thrown up every year we play a Power 5 school, and the fact that we did what did at Tennessee last year, their kids are not going to overlook us,” App state coach Scott Satterfield said. “Kirby’s also telling them about it every day. So they’re not going to overlook us. I know it’s a big game for them. They want to start the season off on a good note.”

They’re gonna get Georgia’s best shot, alright.

  1. If they get our best shot, App doesn’t stand a chance. If they don’t, we’ll be in for a fight. If you analyze that upset in 2007 and look at the Tennessee game last year, they hung around and kept it close. Against Michigan, they got the break at the end. Against Tennessee, they didn’t and could hold up in OT. We need to jump on them early and often and don’t let them off the mat.

    App is my #2 team; my kid wore the jersey…94 DL…but the Dawgs really need to goose egg em with a nice 50-0…just the way it is coach Satt.

    If the scenario was that Georgia was undefeated halfway through the season, and getting ready to play Florida the week after, then MAYBE I could envision a situation where the Dawgs were not in the best mental state.

    However, this is the first game of the year. Those kids are ready to play in a real game, and hit some new people in the mouth. Add to that the presumed chip on their shoulder in trying to make a statement that Georgia is a team to reckon with, and I don’t think there’s any risk of overlooking or taking lightly a very good App St team.

    That being said, Georgia still has to go out and do it. I think they will.

      Agree completely. In the middle of the schedule they might have a slugger’s chance to land a lucky punch, at night, in the season opener, with a lot of young players getting their first chance in the spotlight, Appy can only hope to make ti competitive. And that is not minimizing that they are a decent mid-major returning lots of experience, but this is better talent than they faced against TN last season.

    Remind me again, what happened last time we played these giant killers?
