William Broussard , Southern University former A.D. , now the top aid the SU’S president had a reason for scheduling the SEC Powerhouse. One could be that the payoff would be much needed in the Athetic budget that has been crippled by state wide cuts among other things.

Southern’s Human Jukebox has already been included in the contract as many Georgia fans are in for a treat at halftime. With Southern and it’s band heading into Athens this weekend, many folk have gotten their tickets and the Jaguar Nation will be deep in the Atlanta area. Win, lose or draw, Southern bring it.
