Because some of you indicated by email or to me on twitter (@DougRobersonAJC) that you liked like series last year, I’m bringing back the Georgia State football A-to-Z series.
Quick recap: the Panthers went 6-7 last season with that last loss coming in the team’s first bowl game, the Cure Bowl in Orlando against San Jose State.
Coach Trent Miles will return seven-eight starts on offense (depending upon your definition of what makes a starter) and nine on defense.
The team should be picked to finish in the top half of the media polls and, if not for the lock that Appalachian State will likely have on first-place votes, might even receive a vote or two in that category.
Anyway, off we go:
G is for Georgia Dome
The Panthers haven’t had a winning record at home since its inaugural season in 2010 when it went 5-2.
Following that, the team went 3-3 in 2011, 0-6 in 2012, 0-7 in 2013, 1-5 in 2014 and 2-4 last year.
This year’s home schedule includes:
Sept. 2 vs. Ball State
Oct. 8 vs. Texas State
Oct. 22 vs. Tennessee-Martin
Nov. 3 vs. Arkansas State
Nov. 12 vs. Louisiana-Monroe
Nov. 19 vs. Georgia Southern
With a little bit of good luck and good health, the Panthers should post a winning record at the Dome this season and snap that streak of losing records.
