Curry has to play diplomat in first season

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia State will not play their first game until September but head coach Bill Curry already feels like his Panther program is a winner.

The Georgia State program has added their roster with several transfers this spring for top SEC and ACC teams.


The most notable transfer is quarterback Star Jackson from Alabama.

Georgia State has also added tight end Bailey Woods from Auburn and offensive linemen Joseph Gilbert and Clyde Yandell from Georgia Tech.

Coach Curry has told all his transfers they have to earn their starting jobs on the practice field.

Curry knows when that happens there may still be hard feelings in the locker room.




Bill Curry said. "To have a bunch of football players who are going to show up that are real good football players and that maybe better than the ones we have had working. Who may take their places and that is going to see unfair because these guys have been through 75 practices. I think that is the dynamic that is going to be my biggest job. To get a team ready that is cohesive."


Georgia State will play in the FCS in the Colonial Athletic Association.

The Panthers first game is September 2nd against Shorter at the Georgia Dome.
