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. Men's Soccer Falls to Clemson

[Clemson, fresh off their upset win over #8 Virginia, edged men's soccer 6-0 in Tuesday's non-conference match. The Eagles were unable to find the magic from a year ago when they upset the Tigers 2-1.]


2. Wofford, GSU sharing similar struggles

[“They’re kind of like us - two teams that are struggling a little bit,” Ayers said about GSU. “They have really good players, they have really good speed, they’re big and physical, and it’s going to be a big challenge for us.”]


3. GSU opponents feel Eubanks' bite at rover

["He's played only four games and some of those older (opponents) will grab him and he can't get away from them just yet," GSU coach Chris Hatcher said. "But each week he's getting better and better... We knew Darius was a great player coming out of high school and we were very pumped to get him."]


4. 'Floundering' Terriers have the flu, too

["We had 10 guys out with the flu Monday," Ayers said. "Some guys, we had to send home. It's putting a strain on us, but the next game is coming and we've got to get some guys ready to play."]


5. Four Down Territory, Sept. 29: Vasher, the run game & the O-line

[A: I'd say your evaluation of the running game is pretty accurate, although I wouldn't say Forte goes down easily. That's not fair. He is a tough runner who has a knack for staying up. That being said, he has not looked particularly quick and there were a couple of runs at Seattle that looked like they should have gone for bigger gains. The Bears took it easy with Forte during the summer because of a hamstring injury he suffered in June. He dinged his knee against the Seahawks. He's probably not running at 100 percent right now, and the bye coming up in Week 5 will serve him well. Remember, the plan was for him to share the load with Kevin Jones, and that had to be scratched when Jones went down for the season. The Bears are sticking to their goal of limiting Forte's usage this season, and that is a smart thing. That is why Adrian Peterson and Garrett Wolfe have both been involved more. Teams can always find a running back on the street, but I don't see the Bears making a move. Not right now, at least.]


6. Tuesday's sports transactions

[CALIFORNIA REDWOODS - Released DE Damon Suggs. Added OL Nick Urban and DE Ryan Kees to the active roster.]


7. Berkeley's Jordan ready for her last shot

[While she figures out her postseason events, Jordan also is narrowing down her college choices. She has a lot of interest, but her top three are Vanderbilt, Tulane and Georgia Southern. She will be taking official visits at a later date.]
