((HT: College Football Talk/The Coastal Source))
We discussed earlier in the week just how successful Georgia Southern has been in their first Sun Belt Conference-Division I season- doing it the right way in developing a football program.
They took care of Troy 42-10 last night and took their win streak to six.
CFT has the numbers on the win:
Georgia Southern, the top-ranked FBS rushing offense at a shade over 400 yards per game, has racked up 1,034 rushing yards in the past five days. They’ve punted twice in 22 combined possessions.
All that running limited Troy to just 44 offensive snaps.
Here's The Big Guy with the highlights
The larger question is: Who will replace Larry Blakeney as the new coach at Troy...?
Here's a name for you...
The current Colquitt County (GA) head coach has his Packers ranked top-five in the country and are the favorite to win the state title in the highest classification in the state. He has maintained in the past that he is the "best college coach in the country that no one has hired."
The situation makes sense. A program in trouble in need for renewal and rebuilding. It gives Propst the chance to go back to Alabama to coach and he can work his system to build it his way in a Division I football conference.
Propst needs seven more weeks worth of wins to go coast-to-coast and, then, it's on Troy... and up to Troy...
