1. Hail Southern!
We love our Eagles and we’re cocky about it. Especially after five hours of tailgating, preceded by two hours of pregame…despite being hungover from the previous two nights. Six Flags over Georgia baby. Hail Southern.
2. Erk Russell
Father of the modern Georgia Southern football program. Went 83-22-1 and won three I-AA national championships in his eight years as head coach. Heros get remembered but legends never die.

Nerds can party too.

23. Old Dorms vs. New Dorms
If you’re old like me you probably stayed at Olliff, Johnson, Winburn, Hendricks, Sanford, or Veazey and wear it like a badge of honor. You pity the kids that stay in super fancy EV or Centennial their freshman years.
24. You read the George-Anne between classes..
and point out the spelling mistakes.
25. You had to run to the County Line to get liquor.
