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 Travels to UTEP Tuesday

[“We view every game as a game that’s winnable,” said head coach Jeff Price. “If we go in there and are confident and we do what we’ve prepared to do, then we’ll give ourselves a chance to win on the road.”]


2. Swimming and Diving finishes the Georgia Tech Fall Quad with a 1-3 Record

[The Georgia Southern swimming and diving team faced some stiff competition in the Georgia Tech Fall Quad Saturday afternoon and went 1-3 on the day.]


3. Ex-prep standout waits his turn during first year with Georgia Southern

[Blackburn, a Graham graduate after transferring from Western Alamance, is at the start of his college career. He'll likely redshirt this season after becoming the first recruit in from the state of North Carolina for ninth-year coach Jeff Price. "I think it's probably the best so I don't waste a year of eligibility," he said.]


4. UTEP Miner freshman has the tools to be great

[The three freshmen and the rest of the Miners are preparing for a Tuesday night game with Georgia Southern in the Don Haskins Center. Georgia Southern, a team that won 20 games last year, should provide a challenge for the Miners. Georgia Southern is already 2-1, with a victory over Houston in the 2K Challenge.]


5. 'We just couldn't get it done'

[The Bears' healthy scratches included backup running back Kevin Jones, probably because Adrian Peterson and Garrett Wolfe are more useful on special teams.]


6. Quarterly report

[With the Bears down 34-3, Grossman replaces Orton, and Adrian Peterson is in for Forte. That kind of day: Peterson’s 21-yard gain on his first carry is nullified by a holding penalty on John Tait — his first holding call of the season.]


7. International field descends on Masters

[In addition, Jarrod Lyle, Greg Chalmers, Aron Price and Marc Leishman, all winners on the Nationwide Tour en route to progressing to the 2009 PGA TOUR will play in the Sportsbet Australian Masters.]
