It's the Brave Eagle -vs- The Duckman!


                        -VS-





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!!


Our good looking Southern Boy!

This is going to be a problem- Trey Luckie who is a little worried...

This is not going to be a problem- The Duckman who looks forward to some southern hospitality...

Your running game is DONE

Trey said...

Ask Alabama about our running game and get back to me!

Erin said...

GO MAINE! Sorry Trey, but Im a Maine girl and need to cheer for my alma mater

The Downeast Duck Hunter said...

Appalachian State, 3 rushing yards on 25 attempts and Jaybo can't throw for peanuts...

The Downeast Duck Hunter said...

And see Trey, our girls from Maine are good looking and hunt also!!!

Trey said...

Keep thinking Jaybo can't sling the rock. We will beat you deep with our speed all day long!

Trey said...

It's ok Erin, but be careful. The Duckman is liable to get a little ugly in here!

Erin said...

Thanks Duck Hunter = )

and thanks for the warning Trey. Im more of a hockey girl than college football, but gotta stick with my school pride.

Erin said...

And I want to see how creative you two get. I think you should have a bet of some sorts going on

I say GSU rolls on in the quest for #7! The Teddy Bears have along trip (2 weeks in a row) and Paulson will be rockin!

Many have come with visions of grandeur in their heads.Few have realized those dreams when they come to our house.We play the game.No one has stopped our run this year and I don't look for the forest fire mascots to do it.GATA

Alex said...

Eagles by 2 touchdowns. Maine may be able to stop the run, but the 3-O isn't exactly just "the run". Don't worry Duckman. We'll ask 66 to take it easy on your Heinicke wannabe QB. Tell your guys to get the icepacks ready. Cutblocks are hell on the knees ;) GATA Eagles!!!

CHERI said...

This Southern Gal is all for the GSU Eagles!

The Downeast Duck Hunter said...

The eagles were put back on the endangered species list again... Something about forest fires that were preventable...

Remind me of Maine's record in the quarterfinals.

Maine is going to get SWOPED!

Talking football with a guy called "Duck Man" is like talking astrophysics with a girl called "Sweet Lips Misty". They don't have a clue!

Eagles by at least a 14 point margin.

Come on Jaybo, at least use something other than Anonymous.

Ask the Duck Man when was the last time he actually watched Maine play a game?

eric cumbee said...

Hope the Maine fans enjoy the trip down, but just dont let the score hit you on the way out.

The greatest gift to our country from the State of Maine was General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlin and the 20th Maine. He was a college professor at the start of the civil war but became a decorated general by the time the war ended. I can't think of anything else (Bears included) that the State of Maine has to offer.

Trey said...

Oh, I think the state of Maine is full of some pretty good folks, just not football teams! GATA!

Oh.My. I am neutral but I agree with Erin.....there needs to be a bet going on around here!

Congrats Trey Luckie, you are the master of the universe and good luck to the the Georgia Southern Eagles.. I'll be rooting for you and as a man of my bet, I will be shutting down my blog for six months. Take care all.
