Eagles fans don't really have a problem with Elon. Sure, they're another conference opponent looking to upend GSU on another beautiful Saturday at Paulson…but it's still Elon. The Eagles have dominated Elon (founded 1889), winning six out of six with an average margin of victory of almost 24 since their first meeting in 1998. There like the new kid at the end of the street. Southern fans know he's down there, but have more important things to worry about.

My best fishing buddy is Coach Steve Cisson. He's a machine when it comes to finding and landing all kinds of creatures from the deep. Most of the things I know about the sport, I learned from him including the fact that you should never go out in a small boat on a big lake when there is a storm brewing.
