Green Wave Hits Statesboro!

Here is recent photo showing town of Statesboro, home to University of Georgia Southern, in American Georgia SSR. Damage to town is because of giant GREEN WAVE OF TULANE!

In former United States, eagle is most important animal. Da, is very large bird. Da, is beautiful to sight. But many Americans think this is superior, most powerful creature. But American eagle is having one critical weakness – this bird is unable to swim in water!

Georgia Southern (12-2, #2 Top Power rank) is learning this difficult lesson, in Tier 2/Round 2 playoff game, drowning in 34-27 defeat to avantyura Green Wave of Tulane!

In next Round 3, is yet another Eagle come to fight dangerous water of Tulane Green Wave! But this time, opponent is #1 Top Power rank Southern Miss Eagles!

But that is next week. Behold! ROUND 2 results of 2015 Tier 2 playoffs:

r2-t2-1v8Game: Tier 2 Quarterfinal
Location: Hattiesburg, Mississippi SSR
Final Score: Southern Miss 63, South Dakota State 33
Notes: Little South Dakota State (9-5, #16) is display much vigor, but is no match for #1-rank offense of Eagles. Southern Miss is swooping down from sky, like MiG fighter jet, grabbing Jackrabbits of South Dakota State with strong claws, like iron, then lifting high into sky, then dropping from great height to cold, hard earth. Then USM is again swooping and lifting, to again drop to ground from high in sky, until Jackrabbits is dead. Then USM is feasting. Then perhaps removing pelt for warmth in cold, Siberian winter. Eagles is next facing Green Wave of Tulane (of District 7) in rematch of Week Eleven. Will Southern Miss again prevail? Or this time, will Green Wave drown Eagle?

r2-t2-2v7

Game: Tier 2 Quarterfinal
Location: Statesboro, American Georgia SSR
Final Score: Tulane 34, Georgia Southern 27
Notes: For second season consecutive, Georgia Southern Eagles (12-2, #2) is entering Round 2 of Tier 2 playoffs ranked #2 Top Power, playing on home field against opponent with weaker offense and defense rank! But for second season, is visitor team claiming upset victory! Da, 9-4 season record is not impressive, but Tulane is also District champion for two seasons consecutive! Playing in playoff game is familiar experience, like eating small bowl of mama homemade pokhlebka. But will Green Wave be enough water to drown Eagles of Southern Miss (of District 4) dead like Eagles of Georgia Southern (who is yet #2 Top Power rank, despite loss)?

r2-t2-3v6

Game: Tier 2 Quarterfinal
Location: Toledo, Ohio SSR
Final Score: Toledo 40, Villanova 18
Notes: Villanova (10-4, #9) is having #4-rank defense, but is not enough to prevent #19 offense of Toledo to always hit target in end zone with barrage of rockets. Can Rockets again fly high like Yuri Gagarin, and make true promise of glory from early in season? Is only one way to find out – Soviet supercomputer is deciding. Rockets is next facing Spartans of San Jose State (of District 8) in semifinal Round 3.

r2-t2-4v5

Game: Tier 2 Quarterfinal
Location: San Jose, California SSR
Final Score: San Jose State 48, James Madison 33
Notes: Both teams is possessing top-ten offenses, and both is spending many weeks of regular season in top ten of Top Power rankings.  But is only ticket for one team to Round 3 of Tier 2 playoffs. Perhaps due to advantage of home stadion, San Jose State is putting up many points on weak JMU defense (#57 rank). Spartans is next playing similar blue-and-yellow team, with weaker offense, but stronger defense. Can Spartan, fighting with only sword and shield, protect self from Toledo Rockets (of District 5) attack? Round 3 of playoffs is deciding.

ROUND 3 OF PLAYOFFS IS FINAL 4!

Here is schedule for Round 3 semifinals of Tier 2 playoffs:

  • (1) Southern Miss (13-1, #1) vs.
    (7) Tulane (10-4, #8)
  • (3) Toledo (12-2, #3) vs.
    (4) San Jose State (12-2, #4)

Is good semifinal schedule. Is shame #2 seed Georgia Southern Eagles is drowning in loss. But do not feel sad. Many Tier 2 teams is possible for promotion to Tier 1 next season, even if losing in playoffs. Is also possible for champion team, like 2013 North Texas Mean Green, to not qualify for promotion, if fans is not mandatory attending football game in sufficient numbers.
