It truly amazes me that the world can be a very small place sometimes and how things can come full circle to meet in the most unlikely of places. As most of you who have been following my blog for some time may know, The Downeast Duck Hunter and I have developed a friendship through this little blogging nation of ours over the past year or so. I have enjoyed getting to know him and feel that I have a good friend in the great state of Maine. We are both planning trips to visit so that we can experience the hunting lifestyle that the other enjoys. This week though I am sad to announce that the Duckman and I will be on the opposite sides of the field!
Georgia Southern University defeated Old Dominion this past weekend to advance to the quarter final round of the FBS (formerly 1-AA) playoffs. The Eagles play real football where our Champion is determined on the field with an actual playoff, and the next opponent standing in the way of their 7th National title is none other than The University of Maine Black Bears. Take a wild guess who attended the University of Maine! You are correct if you guessed that it was none other than the Duckman himself! This is going to be a problem.
I'm sure that my friend from the North will be bringing all of the smack talk that he can muster and I have to admit that this game worries me. All games at this time of the year worry me. Maine defeated App State in Boone this past weekend, so I know that they have a good football team, but we do have a little history on our side. The two teams have met in the playoffs twice before with the good guys from Statesboro, Georgia winning both contest. I'm hoping that our defense will play well and the the Maine Black Bears will have trouble defending our triple option attack.
If we win the game we will advance to the semi-final round and send the Black Bears back to Maine. If we loose the game, I may have to shut down this blog to avoid the Duckman's wrath! It's a battle of epic proportions!!
