The Coastal Carolina Chanticleer Football Team hosted Sun Belt rival Georgia Southern this past weekend. Georgia Southern is one of Coastal Carolina’s biggest out-of-state rivals and the lead up to this game was extra tense as the GSU Eagles were bringing the HEAT on social media.
The Chanticleers were 4-0 ahead of the matchup with Georgia Southern who were looking to spoiler Coastal Carolina’s perfect record. Also, for anyone that isn’t sure what a ‘Chanticleer’ is it’s “a proud and fierce rooster who dominates the barnyard”, according to the school’s website. And the name traces its origins to Chaucer’s ‘Canterbury Tales.’
Moving on… Georgia State was cranking up the trash talk ahead of the game. They released this hype video below. It was cool at the time, sure. But then the game happened and they got smacked in the face, blowing a 4th quarter lead to Coastal Carolina.
