Get To Know: Georgia State
On the field, Georgia State has had a brutal year, going 1-10 and currently on a ten game losing streak. That's following up an 0-12 2013 campaign. They get ready for Texas State who is looking for their seventh win and hoping the stars align for a bowl invite. Here's some info and tidbits on the Panther program. (Football History) Georgia State has only been playing football for four years, first taking the field in 2010. This is their second year in the Sun Belt Conference, previously having competed in Colonial Athletic Association. After starting with a 6-5 record in their inaugural season, the Panthers have fallen on very hard times. Winning only 1 game in 2012, going win-less in 2013, and staring at only 1 win for this season. (Campus and Stadium) The GSU campus has an enrollment of just over 32,000 students and sits in the heart of downtown Atlanta. Currently the Panthers play their game in the Georgia Dome, the venue of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons. Although the dome does hold over 71,000, the lower bowl is opened for GSU games, allowing roughly 28k. When overflow is needed, then the remaining decks can be used to accommodate. Georgia State has been in discussions to purchase land from the MLB's Atlanta Braves in hopes of eventually constructing a 30,000 football stadium within the next few years close by in the downtown area. (Famous people, and tidbits) No confirmation on graduation, but wikipedia does list Chris Bridges (Ludacris), and award winning actor Julia Roberts, as two of the most well known celebrities having attended GSU. On the football alumni list, three former Panthers are playing on Sunday. Christo Bilukidi (Ravens), Ulrick John (Colts), and Albert Wilson (Chiefs). The Panthers have already secured agreements to play some serious heavy weights in their future non-conference schedule. On that list are Oregon, Wisconsin, Penn State, North Carolina State, and Tennessee, all in the next 4 years.
