1. Opening Night for Eagle Men's Basketball

["We're tired of mixing it up against ourselves, we are ready to play against somebody else and start our journey to a championship," said Young. "We've got a blue-collar bunch of close-knit, high-energy guys and they have committed to a defensive mindset."]


2. Lady Eagles Set to Tip-Off 2009-2010 Season Friday Night

[“We are excited about finally getting off the practice court and getting to compete against somebody. The season is here and the kids are excited about that and ready to go,” said Cram. “We are excited as a coaching staff because we get to see where we are at and what we need to work on – what we need to go to next and see how far we have actually come. And we can start working on our depth factor getting some of our younger kids experience on the court, which is what they need.”]


3. Eagle Golf Inks 2010-2011 Signing Class

[“With this 2010 signing class, we focused on getting the best players who fit our program and where we are headed. On paper, this is one of the best recruiting classes in Georgia Southern Golf history,” said head Eagle golf coach Larry Mays. “First and foremost, all three players are great young men. Each of them excels both on the golf course and in the classroom.”]


4. The CY era tips off today

[“To be honest with you, my biggest concern is winning games we shouldn’t win early and then fizzling out at the end of the year,” Young said. “I watched a program like Mercer last year – great coach and a great program – beat Alabama and Auburn (at the beginning of the season). At the end of the year, they were nowhere to be found.”]


5. Eagles never take Furman for granted

[“We’re playing for now,” Hatcher said. “We’re trying to finish up on a good note and give us a little momentum going into the offseason. More importantly, we’ve got some good seniors on the team, and we want to send them out victorious over our arch-rival Furman.”]


6. Young looking to turn around GSU basketball program

["We're going to get through it," Young said. "Any time you lose scholarships it hurts, but I understood what needed to be done. We need guys with character, guys who are championship people. When we put our hands together, we say "family"... If these guys buy in, we can exceed expectations."]


7. Justin Rose leads Children's Miracle Network Classic at Disney World

[But tour rookie Aron Price (No.149 among money earners) was up against it at 59th in the field after a 71.]
