1. Hurricane Irene Pushes Women’s Soccer Clash to Sunday

[Georgia Southern's trip to Conway, S.C. for a planned Women's Soccer match on Saturday, August 27th, has been postponed due to Hurricane Irene. With severe weather possible in the region, Coastal Carolina has moved the match to Sunday, August 28th at 3 p.m.]


2. Athletics Announces 2011-2012 Eagle Vision Service

[Georgia Southern Athletics announces new Eagle Vision video service packages for the 2011 Eagle Football, Soccer and Volleyball seasons. The subscription-based service offers fans the ability to view live webcasts of Georgia Southern home events. Audio broadcasts of Eagle Football are offered as a free service on GeorgiaSouthernEagles.com/Eaglevision.]


3. The Eagles Nest: Jerick McKinnon's Unique Role


4. Lady Eagles set to defend SoCon title

["It was one of the best experiences of my entire life," said Hannah Nelson, one of four seniors on the 2011 team. "We clicked so well, especially in that [SoCon Championship] game against Charleston. We came together as one, and that's really what we strive for every single time."]


5. Riley overtakes Tinsley at defensive tackle on GSU depth chart

[“Roderick has been nagged by a knee injury and he hasn’t practiced as much, and Riley has been struggling through a hamstring,” Monken said. “They’ve both been hurt, but Riley’s toughed it out and really has played better through camp. That doesn’t mean Rod won’t beat him back out by the time we play, but if we played today, Riley would be the starter.”]


6. First-year Samford offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee learned from Gus Malzahn

[But the learning curve is still steep. Sullivan, whose team opens the season on Sept. 3 at Seibert Stadium against nationally ranked Georgia Southern, doesn't expect the offense to be as effective early in the season as it will be by the midway point. But he certainly expects the offense to be prepared when Lashlee stands on the opposite sideline from his mentor in the final game of Samford's regular season against Auburn.]


7. Mercer Women Shut Out Eagles

["It was a much improved Georgia Southern team and we have to give them credit, they fought very hard," Serafy said. "It's always hard to play on the same day as you travel, so from that standpoint I am pleased and it's good to get another shutout."]


8. Revs see five-game win streak snapped on Long Island

[The Revs tied it with a three-spot in the fourth. Chris Walker scored on Bryant Nelson's double-play grounder to get the Revs on the scoreboard, and Chris Nowak followed with a two-run homer, his 18th of the season.]


9. San Jose relinquishes early lead and game to Stockton, 5-4

[Meanwhile, the Ports counter with Jacob Brown, who is also looking for a win and is coming off of a loss to Lancaster in his previous start on August 19.]
