1. Golf Prepares for Raines Development Intercollegiate

[“It’s going to be a different format, during the first 36 holes all five of our golfers will play in the same group. This gives for many of the coaches their first look at how their players will compete in a tournament setting,” said Mays. “I’ll get to see our players in the heat and our guys will get to see one another in the heat of a tournament. There are a lot of SoCon teams and others from around the region.”]


2. Women's Tennis Wraps Up Final Day of Thomasville Invitational

[It was a Georgia Southern showdown in the consolation bracket as Ali Beavers (Kingsport, Tenn.) faced off against Kristi Kegerreis (Fairfax, Va.) and Molly Maddox (Rome, Ga.) competed against Melanie Rolle (Gainesville, Fla.).]


3. Reader Feedback: Do you agree with rushing the field against Northeastern?

[Georgia Southern came back in thrilling fashion to beat Northeastern 34-27 in overtime on Saturday night at Paulson Stadium. At the conclusion of the game, some fans rushed the field following the game in celebration of the win.]


4. Colleges find aerial assault popular

[Hurricane Ike wasn’t the only aerial force that blew into towns this weekend. It seemed that from Statesboro, Ga., to Orono, Maine and most locales in between, rifle-armed quarterbacks filled the air with footballs.]

6. Addition by subtraction

They played in a hostile environment against a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent in Ball State and managed to score 14 points, then went down to a very hot and very hostile Statesboro Georgia to play a Georgia Southern team ranked 14th in the country and lost on some last second heroics.]


7. Bruised ribs stop Hester

[It was somewhat of a surprise to see running back Adrian Peterson among the list of inactives, but Peterson said he knew all week he wasn't going to play. The Bears opted to go with five receivers and activated Mark Bradley.]


8. Grading the Bears
