The road has certainly not been smooth for the Georgia State Panthers in their third year as a program, as the team has started 2012 0-3, but Georgia State athletic director Cheryl Levick is preaching patience as the one of college football's newest programs continues to grow.
After a 38-14 loss to the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners, Levick was quick to praise the work the program was doing in its infancy and offered a bright outlook for the future.
"We know the potential these young men have and we see the potential every day in practice and we can't seem to convert on the field yet," Levick told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "But we will figure out a way."
Georgia State finished 6-5 in their first year, 2010, and 3-8 in 2011.
The school has tried a variety of ways to increase attendance for home games, which are staged in the Georgia Dome, a prime spot to gain the program some local visibility, according to the AJC.
