I feel like the polls are showing a lack of respect for Southern. Yes, these guys can play football too and people need to realize that. The difference between UGA and Southern is the second string and third string. The first strings in most case are evenly matched, but as the games wears on, the second help rest the first string. Teams like Southern cannot do the same thing because it is a huge drop off int talent; whereas at UGA, the second string can be almost as good as the first.
UGA first team players are four and five star players, while Southern may have a two start here and there. I am in love with HBCU sports, but realize that there is a huge difference in the quality of athlete at most FBS when copaired to HBCU FSU. When you ad the difference in coaching and facilities, then, Southern or any-other HBCU can come close to being equal. In fact UGA not playing their first team much is what kept the score down... or from being as bad as it could have been.
What game were you watching and on what type of television set?

Huh? ? Georgia's starters in most cases are at least 4 star athletes and some 5 star but they are evenly matched
This is the problem with your average couch potato fan they think a player ratings plays the game.
Even though year after year players that weren't ever rated are inducted into the NFL HOF, they still put more worth into the propaganda machine design to lure our kids away from us.

So, you basically, believe that the drop in the polls had to do with the sluggish start against Southern? Southern wishes it had that much power, but it doesn't. Stick with beating up on the SWAC. You Louisiana people are funny.
So how did you think polls work? I bet when you heard the term straw poll you took that literally.
Dude please tell me you aren't this dumb and it just more crab in the barrel mentally. That would look better on you.....SERIOUSLY
I bet you were one of them applauding the fact that App State beat Michigan and that they dropped 5 spots after that game. But God forbid you handkerchief head negroes give an hbcu any recognition for having the same effect.

ATHENS, Ga. — Realistically, September couldn’t have gone any better than it did for Southern.
Sure, it began with a lopsided loss (62-15 at Louisiana Tech) and ended with another (48-6 at No. 7 Georgia on Saturday).
But this month and this season were never going to be judged by the outcome of those games, which earned the Jaguars a cool $1 million combined.
That’s a big boost to Southern’s bottom line, and the football bottom line is looking pretty good, too.
That’s because the Jaguars sandwiched two Southwestern Athletic Conference victories — 50-13 at Mississippi Valley State and 50-31 against Jackson State in the lone home game to date — between those games against Football Bowl Subdivision foes.
Southern now gets an open date. It’s a week to heal, catch its breath, self-evaluate and gear up for what matters most — the heart of the SWAC schedule. The presumably biggest challenges — Alcorn State, Prairie View and Grambling — lie ahead, but the Jaguars won’t have to deal with any more FBS distractions.

this is another sign that these pay for play games won't last forever.
You negroes are just determine to find a dark cloud any where you can when it comes to hbcu's aren't ya?
Father help our people to free themselves from their self inflicted prison. Amen
I said that there is no mandate by any other conference to do so.The Pac-12 has no such rule, and most athletic directors say they don’t think the league should dictate policy on the matter. But UCLA proudly maintains it has not scheduled an FCS team in more than 30 years because that’s just part of the Bruins’ scheduling philosophy.
So what’s the secret to putting together a winning nonconference schedule? Well, it depends on who you ask.
Teams like Oregon, USC, UCLA and the two Arizona schools have different scheduling parameters than teams such as Utah, Washington State and Colorado.
There’s also the question of whether it’s acceptable to schedule FCS teams in what’s commonly known as “buy games,” where one school pays a lower-level opponent to come to its home stadium.
The Big Ten recently voted to stop playing FCS teams starting in 2016.
“We have nine conference games. If you win your division, you’re playing a 10th conference game, and 10 Power Five games in one year is significant,” said Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne. “You have to have that as an underlying thought
Arizona, on the other hand, has no problem including an FCS team every year as it tries to maintain that elusive strength/competition balance.
FYI: Arkansas just finish inking a deal with Alcorn

GA dropped one spot to No. 8 in the latest AP Poll.
After defeating Southern University 48-6 on Saturday, UGA was bumped from the No. 7 spot by UCLA, which moved up following its 56-30 victory over Arizona State on Saturday night.
This is the lowest spot in the rankings that UGA has occupied since beginning the season at No. 9. Despite its 4-0 record, the voters may not have considered the quality of UGA’s opponents to be as high as some of the other schools’ in the top 10.https://www.dawgnation.com/football/team-news/uga-falls-to-no-8-in-the-latest-ap-poll

Southern played well the majority of the game. Once they adjusted to the UGA speed at every position, they simply played football. The only ones I saw that were timid were the one return dude (not #25) and that one RB was afraid to aggressively hit the hole.
Huh? You do realize that #25 is Willie Quinn who ended up with 104 total yards 82 of which were return yardage (when they did kicked to him)
And that running back is our leading rusher who end up with 19 carries for 82 yard and a 17 yards run for a touchdown five yards of which he carried a GA DB into the endzone with him.

A Southern University football player underwent spinal surgery Sunday afternoon at Athens Regional Hospital to stabilize several fractures in his neck after being injured a day earlier in a game against Georgia.
Wide receiver Devon Gales continues to have movement in his upper body. The school called the surgery “successful,” and said the player “remains in good spirits.” He will remain in the hospital in Athens until he is released to return to Baton Rouge, La., for further treatment.
Gales, a third-year sophomore from Baton Rouge, La., was placed on a backboard and stretcher and taken by cart off the field. He sustained the injury while blocking during a kickoff return late in the third quarter of Saturday’s 48-6 Bulldogs victory.
Gales’ parents were with their son Sunday at Athens Regional after Georgia paid for their flight from Louisiana.
Georgia coach Mark Richt and members of his coaching staff, including offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and his family, went by to visit him on Sunday.http://onlineathens.com/breaking-news/2015-09-27/updated-info-injured-southern-wide-receiver-devon-gales

ATHENS, Ga. — For the first 30 minutes of Southern’s showdown with No. 6 Georgia on Saturday afternoon, the Jaguars more than held their own against a dangerous Southeastern Conference power that’s known for striking early, often and with great efficiency.
After the break, however, it was a different story. The Bulldogs exploded for 28 points in the third quarter and wound up flattening the Jaguars 48-6.
But what a first half it was for Southern, playing an SEC opponent for the first time.
The Jaguars limited Heisman hopeful Nick Chubb — who was seeking his 12th consecutive 100-yard rushing game — to 31 yards in the first half. They also ended quarterback Greyson Lambert’s consecutive completion streak at 22 and sacked him once (thus preventing the Bulldogs’ offensive linemen from a postgame ice cream reward), and Southern forced Georgia to settle for two field goals.
