Georgia State has tremendous potential. Georgia, with 10.5 million people, has only Georgia and Georgia Tech, and Tech doesn't really count (just ask Dan Radakovich). Compare this to Alabama, a state with 4.5 million people and four FBS programs (Alabama, Auburn, UAB and Troy). Georgia State is in the Atlanta mega-media market and plays its home games in the Georgia Dome (likely followed by the new Falcons stadium in 2017). The right coach and a few seasons of success can earn it Big East membership.
Agreed. SEC teams should be concerned because more SEC signees come out of Georgia than any other SEC state (because there are only two in-state FBS programs to grab 'em all). Grabbing Georgia kids is about to become tougher for South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Auburn, etc, etc.
