Each day we strive to find article links involving Georgia Southern athletics and former Georgia Southern athletes. Should you find we missed an article link, please reply to help keep the Eagle Faithful informed:

1. Men’s Soccer Defeats Davidson 2-1 in the First Round of the SoCon Tournament

[“Davidson is tough,” said head coach Kevin Kennedy. “It was a great win for us. We were able to rally from a goal down to win.”]


2. Charleston Edges Volleyball

[“I thought we competed well I just don’t know that we executed the way we needed to, particularly in critical situations,” said GSU head coach Chad Callihan. “When the games got to about 20 we didn’t take care of the ball good enough to score in critical times. Charleston’s a great team and did a great job – they’ve played in tight situations a lot the last few years now and I think we’re still learning how to handle those situations.”]


3. Georgia Southern stumbles again at home

["It's an embarrassing defeat," Hatcher said. "This is one of the most disappointing defeats I've ever had as a coach. Defensively I thought we played really well. We gave up two big plays, but other than that we stuffed them. "Offensively it was a very poor showing. Early on we had opportunities to put them away, and we didn't take advantage of them. That made it hard to beat Samford, a team that doesn't beat itself."]


4. GSU men get hoops season started

["The goal for this year's team is to be better in March," Eagles sophomore guard Willie Powers said. "We were so much better than we showed."]


5. Ready or not, Duke fans, the season starts tonight

[Georgia Southern freshman guard Nate Blackburn, a former high school player at Western Alamance and Graham, could make his collegiate debut. He won't be in the starting lineup, according to information from the university.]


6. Reloaded Cougars ready for basketball season

[“It’s a great opportunity for us if we can get a win in that first game,” said Houston coach Tom Penders, whose team went 24-10 last year. “It’s not like I haven’t mentioned Duke. I’ve told them, ‘If you guys want an opportunity to play Duke, then you’re going to have to play a great first game. But first games are a Twilight Zone, particularly when you have a lot of new people.”]


7. Price is right: Aron joins PGA's heavy hitters now he's good and ready

[However, just as Price had chosen to stay at Georgia Southern University an extra year when his game seemed ready for the pro tour, he wanted to make sure. He did not want to be one of those one-year-wonders who jump too quickly, crack under the pressure and spend years trying to put the pieces back together.]


8. Leishman comes in seventh

[Aron Price shot up the leaderboard with a six-under par final round to move into a tie for 16th with fellow Aussie Gavin Coles at nine-under overall.]


9. Fab Four heading for the Big Show

[At the conclusion of the 2008 Nationwide Tour Championship on Sunday (US time) Jarrod Lyle, Greg Chalmers, Aron Price and Marc Leishman booked their tickets to the big show and the chance to win a prized US PGA Tour event next season.]


10. As Patriots' wins pile up, so does trust in Cassel

[No one plays that chess game, mixing coverages and deceiving opponents, like Belichick. It's why he has won with guys like Earthwind Moreland and, yes, receiver Troy Brown at cornerback in the Patriots' Super Bowl years. And it's why they keep winning now despite subpar talent at that spot.]


11. VanGorder finds home in Atlanta

[He understands his reputation as a vagabond, but believes it’s “a little unfair.” He left Georgia for Jacksonville in 2005. He felt he needed NFL experience on his resume in order to eventually get a head coaching job. But leaving the Jaguars after one season for Georgia Southern’s head coaching job he concedes “was very questionable.” In Statesboro, they would agree. He went 3-8.]
