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. Daniel Smith Named Men’s Soccer Player of the Week

[Daniel Smith (Marietta, Ga.) was named the Southern Conference Men’s Soccer Player of the Week for the week of September 9.]


2. Hill happy to be back

["The coaches expect more of me as a junior," Hill said. "I'm expected to be a leader on and off the field. We've got a young team, but we've got some very good young players. "The way we won (Saturday) - we weren't playing that well - shows we can get over adversity. The game is never over until the clock is at zero."]


3. Under the Helmet: Lee Chapple

[Coming to Georgia Southern, Chapple was very aware of the program’s storied history and wants to build on that history during his tenure here. “We are all here to win that National and [Southern Conference] title back,” explained Chapple. “We really want to get the titles and rings and bring that football glory back to Statesboro. That is probably [the] main goal not only for me, but for the entire team.”]


4. Former Tift County Blue Devils have good games

[Charlie Edwards continues to do a nice job as the punter for Georgia Southern. For the season, Edwards is averaging 40.6 yards on 11 attempts, and averaged 44 yards per punt against Georgia in the opening game of 2008.]


5. Fumbles cause Govs' stumble to 0-2

["You can't come into an adversarial place and turn the ball over and lose the kicking game," Christophel said. "That is the two things we did. We turned the ball over in crucial situations and then the kicking game, as good as it was last week; it may have been as bad this week." Despite a slow start, the Govs kept pace with No. 16 Georgia Southern for three quarters, improving dramatically from last week.]


6. Football: Who should the OVC schedule for early-season?

["I'd love to play just one game and make a lot of money," Austin Peay head coach Rick Christophel said. "You're going to get beat up no matter how it is. We play North Dakota State and Georgia Southern and don't make the same things as other guys made, and there's just as physical as some of the bigger teams."]

7. Gracious hosts?

[According to an article Tuesday in Georgia Southern's newspaper, The George-Anne Daily, a University student accosted a Georgia Southern student attending the football game Aug. 30 and then shoved him. The Southern student fell down a set of stairs and landed on his face, according to the police report. We've all heard verbal jabs thrown around town and the stadium on gamedays. But is it necessary to physically harass people? The score of 45-21 should have been painful enough for Georgia Southern. There's no need to give their fans cuts and abrasions.]


8. Online edition more than top stories

[Here, readers find a forum to submit comments directly relating to a particular story, share favorite photos, post community-wide calendar events and keep up with the latest sports schedules and scores. There is also a special link for Georgia Southern fans wishing to keep up with the Eagles through the Eagles Nest site.]


9. London column: Catawba's Cuthbertson takes on more responsibility

["I like to kid Coach (Bob) Lancaster that Catawba didn't recruit me — that I had to recruit myself," Cuthbertson said. "I wanted to go to Georgia Southern, but when that didn't work out, I was sitting there with nowhere to go."]
