    Re: Furman @ Samford. Socon game of the week

    If they give it to Hodges that's basically saying they don't watch the games

    Furman going for their 8th straight win for the first time since 1989

    (In 1989 the defending national champion Paladins opened the season with a loss to Clemson, then reeled off 12 straight wins before losing a heart-breaker in the snow at Paladin Stadium to SF Austin in the playoff semifinals)

    Our last game vs ETSU we had 3 new starting O-Linemen. The center, RG, and RT. Our best WR, McKnight, has a shoulder injury. He played, caught one pass, and came out to be treated. Shaheed Salmon, our leading tackler who has been injured, played, but went out and was treated and I don't think he returned. I know nothing official, but what difference does it make? I gather from what is being said here that we don't have a snowball's chance anyhow. Furman has a better resume' even if they lose, and Blazejowski(who is a great QB and person IMO) is so much better than Hodges, that we are doomed. Hey, maybe Herink of ETSU should be #2 - didn't he have over 400 yards of passing vs Furman?
    Also, Furman has the SoCon tradition, NC, and is obviously the best choice to represent the SoCon in the Playoffs. There is even a threat of rain in Homewood for Saturday. I wonder if Samford should just do the right thing and forfeit this mismatch?

    Meh, no one buys the "Samford doesn't have a chance" line.

    Furman's a good team. Samford's a good team.
    FU all the time.

    "It's not like we didn't know what was coming. We just couldn't stop them" -WCU head coach Kent Briggs

    "The game we know and love literally grew up in the Southern Conference. To find the foundation for ACC and SEC football, you have to go the leagueís roots. To find an appreciation for a brand of football often-overlooked and seldom-appreciated, we as fans should do the same."

    If I'm playing Samford I'm feeling more nervous if I'm favored than if I'm the underdog
