I agree. Trophy needed.

I am just not sure what that trophy should be. Paddles? Seems too ... um ... sophomoric.

The JUG was perfect for the ASU/WCU rivalry. But, what do GaSo & ASU have in common? I can't think of much. It's a LONG way down there. Swamp land vs. Mtn. land. They have gnats & we don't.

Surely some tangible item could be found that would capture the essence of the rivalry. Bug spray? Nah, they prolly wouldn't go for that.

Creek water buckets? The Golden Bucket? A wooden bucket?

Don't know. I am open to suggestions.

This is easy, black and blue bowl and play for an old paddle. Someone mock one up and send it to Gillen. He can convince GS's inept AD to do anything.

True that.

I'm eager to see outcome against NMSU this weekend.
I think you might be a week behind.
Southern and NMSU play this coming Saturday. So, no, not a week behind.

Because the thread is about Georgia Southern, to an extent. Likewise, do you really think someone on this board would not have known that WE played NMSU last weekend?

I think it would be cool if the trophy was awarded to the loser, and the loser has to display it until they win again. A trophy nobody wants.

Have you been on this board before? 50% are senile, so it isn't out of place :lol:

That would put a unique spin on a traveling trophy. It would definitely get national attention.

Black and Blue football would work for me. The game has to be played rivalry week regardless!

I love it!

Make a resin mold of a crushed pizza box with a picture of goal posts sticking through a bus window on the box top and award it to the loser of the game.

How about a Socon Championship replica trophy that goes to the loser?

Holly Farms chicken(now Tyson) started in Wilkesboro/Zacsby's started in Statesboro GA. Losing team serves winning team teams AD chicken dinner. Trophy is a big golden/Blue fork for DG to hold in the stands for years to come.

I'm surprised at the response. I did not realize so much of our fan base thought the idea was so lame. The jug seemed to be fun for the player, coaches, and the fans. It also seems that the best rivalries in college football have something similar at stake. I guess I misread the level of interest.
For one thing, the rivalry with Western was a true geographical rivalry. Both schools relatively near each other slugging it out for supremacy in the mountains. The jug was a natural and very appropriate trophy. We have none of that with GS. These things just dont work when they are contrived. Just beating them is fun enough.

I guess you could mock up a trophy of a yellow school bus with goalposts thru the windows and pizzas scattered about.

True, we are not geographically compatible with GS, but I did not realize that was part of the criteria for a rivalry. ND and USC, Tenn and UF, UM and OSU, and the list goes on.

While we are not close in proximity with GS, the competition between the schools has been fierce. It seems natural to celebrate the game with a symbol. I don't see how doing so would be contrived, since the rivalry already exist. Now if we did this with Troy or A-State that would be completely contrived.

I wonder what the reaction was when jug idea was introduced in the 70's.

Given the short distance, I would prefer a rivalry trophy, if we have one be with WFU. We are close, we share the same colors...basically. Its a better geographical match, and the stadiums are packed! This needs to be our annual rivalry when DG and the WFU AD can set it up; given schedules are set years in advance. And, I think, both schools desire it.

I'm not sure the AD or fan base at WF feel the same. GS is our rival. Just slap an unusual trophy on the game and in a few years we have a tradition, just like we did with WCU in the 70's.

Unless I'm mistaken, ND-USC is the only one of the rivalries you mentioned that has a trophy.

My father has a leg lamp which my mom insists he's being buried with because she despises it so much. I could probably convince her to let it depart our household for a better purpose ;)
