Wow, apart from West Virginia, this is my other school that I claim (who can resist a free education, right?). 
They finally got a football program going and decided to schedule Alabama their first year as a team.  I know that this will give them a paycheck and some decent exposure, but is this worth it?

$400,000 is a lot of money to a new football program.

And this is EXACTLY what's wrong with college football scheduling...

Why is a huge program like Alabama even allowed to play Georgia State in football?

Who knows, what does Alabama have to gain from playing them?  I hope they're in the running for a NC spot at the time, then a) it'll get GSU's name out more and b) people will ridicule Ala for it. 

Either way, I'm a little worried it'll be a bad start for the brand new fan base/team.  They'll be the guys who lost 77-0 to Alabama.

Programs shouldn't be able to play teams out of their divisions.

Like there aren't enough cupcakes in Division I-A to choose from...

Off the subject,  but since you're another Atlanta fan, don't forget to get your tix in our Buc section for the Nov game (I know its really early).
