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 Basketball Releases 2008-09 Schedule

[“This is probably one of the most challenging schedules we’ve had in the last 10 years in regards to non-conference opponents,” said head coach Jeff Price. “We’re playing at Florida, at UTEP, in Cameron Indoor, at Drake’s tournament, who was an NCAA Tournament team, not to mention we play Davidson twice who was an Elite Eight team. So with the addition of what they’ve done in the league, the schedule is as good as it’s been in the last 10 years.”]


2. State of '08: Georgia

[Although Georgia Southern hasn't made the NCAA Tournament since 1992, the program has been consistently solid in Jeff Price's 9-year tenure. In 2006, he guided the Eagles to the NIT, where they lost to Charlotte in the opening round. Last year was another solid campaign, which included 13 wins in the Southern Conference, and upset victories over highly touted UAB and Cleveland State.]


3. Orr improving his game

["This gave us some momentum," Orr said. "Some people may have had some doubts after we got beat real bad. This week we showed we're a team who can compete with a team like Georgia Southern and that we can play with these guys."]


4. Syracuse football unlikely to go winless

[I hope Robinson and his players aren't caught looking ahead to their home game against Division I-AA Northeastern on Sept. 20. It would be difficult to lose that one. The Huskies were 3-8 in 2007 and are 0-1 this season after a 48-14 loss at Ball State Aug. 28. They figure to get spanked Saturday at Georgia Southern.]


5. Class of ‘05: Only one-third of blue chips live up to hype

[Tavares Kearney, Tucker: Signed with Georgia, left school, landed at Georgia Southern and played one season under Brian VanGorder.]
