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. Football Begins Four-Game Homestand Saturday

[Georgia Southern University begins a four-game homestand at Paulson Stadium to kick off its home football schedule. The 16th-ranked Eagles will play host to Austin Peay State, a scheduled 6 p.m. start.]


2. Welcome to the Q school

[Though only in his second year as an Eagle, Taylor has enough playing experience to make him a leader on the field, particularly when it comes to playing against teams like Georgia. To Taylor, who got accustomed to playing in front of SEC caliber crowds his first two collegiate seasons, performing in front of nearly 100,000 screaming fans was nothing new. “I’ve already been there,” Taylor said. “It was just me trying to get the other guys to come along. They saw all those people, I guess they freaked out.”]


3. NFL scout graces Govs' football practice

[Junior cornerback Tay Robinson will play more with the first team unit when Austin Peay travels to play No. 16 Georgia Southern Saturday at 5 p.m. Robinson will split time with junior LaDarius Davis.]


4. Brooks at home on O-line

[But his strength, humbleness, dedication — and unforeseen circumstances — have led him to become the starting right guard for Austin Peay, which will head down to play No. 16 Georgia Southern at 5 p.m. Saturday. "I've just been trying to find out where I fit in the best," Brooks said. "I've always trusted the coaches' decisions on whether I got playing time or not. I've just been lucky and blessed to get the opportunity I got this camp and they finally found where I could be in the mix."]


5. College Football's Week One Pops and Drops

[Georgia drops to No. 4 in a tie with Oklahoma. They didn’t show me anything in their match with Georgia Southern. Actually, that might be an excellent BCS Bowl game, Oklahoma vs. Georgia, but it won’t be the BCS Title match.]


6. SEC Power Poll: A Sea of Blue's Ballot for Week 1

[Georgia -- The Bulldogs beat Georgia Southern handily between the hedges, but when you allow a Southern Conference team to put up 21 points, you have to say that there might be a chink or three in the Classic City Canines' armor. Too early to say for sure, but this was a far less impressive performance than Florida.]


7. Berth earned in spring

[First-half ace and Midwest League Western Division starting pitcher Craig Italiano, slugging center fielder Corey Brown and No. 2 starter Scott Mitchinson have been promoted, leaving fellow All-Stars Larry Cobb, Greg Dowling and Jamie Richmond to navigate a ship that’s been off course at times since late June.]


8. Bees strike first

[A walk, stolen base and error put Juan Rivera on third. Ryan Eigsti was hit by a pitch. Lough came up with the second big hit of the night, bouncing a ball past first baseman Greg Dowling. The single scored Rivera with the tying run.]


9. Patriots Preview: The first half

[The last time these teams met – a 40-22 Pats win in St. Louis in 2004 – Adam Vinatieri threw a TD pass to Troy Brown on a fake field goal, and Earthwind Moreland played cornerback for the Pats. Ah, good times.]
