Georgia State Promotion Has More Money Than Fans

((HT: Rick Limpert))

The Georgia State football program has decided to move from the Colonial Athletic Association to the Sun Belt Conference. And in their transitional year of moving from I-AA to Division I-Big Boy football, the Panthers are taking their lumps.

The average attendance has dropped under 10,000 and the NCAA mandates that you need a three-year average of 17,000 or you can go on probation (or other really evil penalizing things) for up to ten years on the Division I level.

Not something they want to have to look forward to...

So, they came up with this promotion in the wake of their game against New Hampshire- a game in which GSU lost again...

Wonder what the meeting was like to drop $10,000 in vouchers from the ceiling inside the Georgia Dome was like...???

Here's the evidence...


300 GSU students were chosen to run around and try and grab as many of the vouchers as possible in a set time frame at half time. Presumably, to get people to wander by and see some really bad football.

Oh, 10-grand in vouchers were dropped...
The announced attendance was just over 9,000...

The HQ feels for Bill Curry and what he has helped build in downtown Atlanta. We also hope the ascent to the Sun Belt wasn't too far-too fast...
