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. Eagles Conclude UNF Fall Invitational

[Senior Kristi Kegerreis and freshman Taylor Jones advanced to the quarterfinals of the ‘A’ and ‘C’ back draws respectively, while teammate Ashley Hungerford made a run to the quarterfinals of ‘B’ singles at the UNF Invitational (October 9-11). The Eagles concluded the three-day tournament on Sunday.]


2. GSU shouldn’t look for positives in losing

[Forget about finding the positives in shutting out North Carolina in the second half. Maybe the Eagles should concentrate on not falling behind 42-7 by halftime. The lack of a deep threat makes GSU’s short passing offense a little too predictable. And if defenses can predict what’s coming, what happened Saturday occurs.]


3. Georgia Southern defense holds UNC scoreless in the second half, but still loses 42-12

[“Our offense did a great job blocking on that play…and once I realized that I had broken free, I saw that I had a chance to score. That was a really big play for us and at that moment I think everyone felt like we had a chance in the game,” said Urbano.]


4. ACC INSIDER: Fifth quarter … 40-something Saturday

[North Carolina, B-: It would be easy to say that the Tar Heels solved their offensive problems just because they rushed for 164 yards – more than twice their total from the two previous games combined – and scored 42 points. But the enthusiasm should be tempered by the fact that the opposition, Georgia Southern, was from the Football Championship Subdivision, and the fact that the offense’s job was made much easier by the six turnovers forced by UNC’s defense – including two for touchdowns.]


5. Extra Points: Grand Theft

[The easy win over Georgia Southern certainly did not wash away the sour taste in the Tar Heels' mouths from their recent miseries induced by Georgia Tech and Virginia, but it served several purposes.]


6. Heels need to stay in takeaway mode

[North Carolina's defense had been itching for some turnovers. It got 'em during its 42-12 rout against Georgia Southern. Bruce Carter, Zach Brown, Kendric Burney and Gene Robinson grabbed interceptions, while Quan Sturdivant and E.J. Wilson recovered fumbles. Not bad for a team that had previously forced only seven turnovers -- although it should be noted that of the 13 turnovers now forced this season, 10 have come against FCS teams. The question now is: Can the defense produce similar takeaway performances against ACC teams, when it counts?]


7. The 4-1 Mocs are Tops in Tennessee

[And so are the Mocs which are tied for second at 2-1 with Furman and this Saturday's opponent, Georgia Southern. But Huesman knows not to enjoy the win too long and is quite aware that a tough road trip to Statesboro, Ga. awaits ''B.J. and the Boys'' come this Saturday. “We will let out guys enjoy this win tonight and evaluate the game Sunday afternoon, but then it is behind us and we start working for Georgia Southern on Sunday night,'' he stated on Saturday.]


8. Baryla Wins Chattanooga Classic At At 19-Under 269

[Blake Adams, who grew up in Dalton, Ga., finished in a tie for 15th with a 5-under 67 on Sunday. He finished at 14-under 274.]
