I wonder what Erk Russell would have thought of this.

If you’re tired of tailgating out of your RV or don’t want to buy another party tent this fall, Georgia Southern has contracted Glenvill Homes to design mini-mansions specifically for those fans who want to tailgate in style.

“Gone With the Wind” meets gone to get more chicken wings.

The 400-square-foot homes were built specifically for entertaining and include “four flat screen HD satellite TVs, wet bar, air conditioning and a private bathroom,” according to the athletic department’s website.

There are even front porches if you want to move the party outside, where there’s another refrigerator, propane grill and outdoor furniture.

Don’t worry about missing any of the action from other games.

There’s another TV out there.

Obviously, there’s a cost.

They can be yours for $5,000 a weekend.

The Eagles have six homes games this fall. You do the math.

Georgia Southern moved from the FCS to the FBS’ Sun Belt Conference last year, and finished an impressive 9-3, including 8-0 against conference teams.

The Eagles were in a transitional season, which accompanies moves, and weren’t allowed to participate in a bowl. The only losses were to Georgia Tech, N.C. State and Navy.

Georgia Southern also renovated Paulson Stadium prior to the 2014 season, increasing the capacity to 25,000.
