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. Baseball Slips One Spot in National Ranking

[Georgia Southern Baseball drops one spot in the national poll as the Eagles prepare to end a six-game road trip and begin a five game stretch at J.I. Clements Stadium this week.]


2. Athletic Media Relations Blog

[I went to my office to tie up loose ends and pack it up. Whenever he was in Atlanta, Frank Hook (Georgia Southern's alumni relations director) would always stop by office and bring me bottles of barbeque sauce. I had five in my office that are now coming back with me to Statesboro. One of the coaches on the staff at Tech told me he is really happy I got the job at Georgia Southern, I think they were tired of hearing all the stories I would tell about this place. It’s very special to me.]


3. Softball Faces Familiar Foe Charleston Southern

[Holiday Inn Eagle Classic participant, Charleston Southern (20-25, 5-7), returns to Statesboro to face Georgia Southern (19-17, 9-6) in a doubleheader Wednesday at Eagle Field.]


4. NOTEBOOK: Eagles ready to finish road trip

[“If you look at our team now as opposed to a few weeks ago, there are more guys that have been involved,” Hennon said. “We’ve got a couple of spots (in the lineup) that are certainly interchangeable.”]


5. Ty Wright Extends Hit Streak To 16

[“I’ve been seeing the ball real well the last couple of games, however, yesterday I just missed on a few. Today I just tried squaring up on it,” said Wright. “You have to be ready to play every series, every game. For us to come out and take 2-of-3 at one of the top teams in the conference is a good weekend.”]


6. Ocho Cinco, Boldin likely staying put

[The great part about Robinson is that he is good enough to have a seven- or eight-year career. This situation reminds me a lot of Adrian Peterson in Chicago. The Bears love Peterson as a player, but they have always put other backs ahead of him.]


7. Ports remain winless

[Stockton made a bid to break its losing streak with a two-out rally in the first. Matt Smith doubled and Greg Dowling walked against Modesto starter Brandon Durden before Matthew Spencer hit a two-run double to left field. The Ports scored just one run in the first four games.]


8. Blue Rocks Bomb Kinston, 9-1

[Wilmington starter Everett Teaford carried that momentum onto the mound, striking out five straight men between the second and third. He departed after reaching his pitch limit in the fifth inning, two outs shy of qualifying for the win. The returning All-Star allowed just one run on three hits over 4.1 innings. He walked two and struck out six in total, using a deadly changeup with surgeon-like precision.]
