1. Golf Ties for Seventh at Shoal Creek

[“We got off to a dreadful start, that first round killed us. I challenged our team last night not to make any double bogeys and we made only one all day,” said head coach Larry Mays. “We went out and redeemed ourselves, playing well on a really good golf course. I thought our team showed a lot of heart to bounce back like that. I think at the end of the season you could see 10, 11 or maybe all 12 teams in the postseason.”]


2. Elusive freshman Barney sparks GSU's offense

["I liked Coach Hatcher," Barney said. "He knew what he wanted me to do. He talked about winning all the time. He told me expect to win. ... Other coaches said it, but they didn't stress it like Coach Hatcher did."]

6. UTC Blog: SoCon slate in full swing

[The nightcaps are Presbyterian at Appalachian State in a non-conference affair and, in the game of the day, Wofford at Georgia Southern, also on CSS.

8. College Football Treats Georgia Schools Well
