    Default Blueblood’s Article Links—Friday, December 11, 2009

    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 Basketball Heads to N.C. State for Saturday Contest

    [After two conference games last week, Georgia Southern heads back into the non-conference portion of its schedule for the rest of the month of December. The Eagles head to N.C. State for a 2 p.m. game at Reynolds Coliseum on Saturday, December 12. Both head coaches, Charlton "C.Y." Young and Sidney Lowe played point guard for their respective teams, with Young playing point guard for the Eagles from 1989-1993, and Lowe for the Wolfpack from 1979-83 as it made its Cinderella run to the 1983 national championship.]

    2. Eagles Set to Travel to Mercer

    [After a short break, the Georgia Southern women’s basketball team returns to the court traveling to Mercer on Friday, December 11. Tip inside the University Center is set for 7 p.m. The game can be heard locally on 102.9 WPMX-FM and globally on www.GeorgiaSouthernEagles.com.]

    3. GSU women look to continue winning trend at Mercer

    [“We’re not about the big numbers, we’re about losing yourself and getting more consistent,” said GSU coach Rusty Cram. “That’s how it’s been for the last few games for us. Three or four people are within a point of each other, so for J’Lisia to surface out of that, my hat’s off to her. They recognize the little things – blocking a few shots and rebounding on top of scoring on a high percentage, staying out of foul trouble – that kind of thing.”]

    4. What If You Built It But They Still Don't Come?

    [The concerns that many have include the displacement of the student-athletes and staff, losses for some local businesses and with the Colonial Athletic Association’s seeming shift to the South with Old Dominion joining the conference and Georgia Southern being considered for membership, so soon after losing two Northern schools.]

    5. Around FCS: Great teams, great coaches

    [Six days later, Montana came from a 20-3 deficit to take a 23-20 lead against Georgia Southern on a Humphery scoring run in the fourth quarter. But Payton Award winner Adrian Peterson broke free for a 57-yard touchdown scamper that lives in Eagle lore as the son of the run. That gave Georgia Southern a 27-25 victory. Both Appalachian State and Montana were left short of their championship dreams.]

    6. Pack needs a bowl win

    [They are tired of losing spotlight games. See the last three bowl games, the last 10 Boise State games, the Nebraska game in 2007, Texas Tech in 2008, Missouri in 2008, 2009, Arizona State in 2006, Georgia Southern in 1990 (it still hurts).]

    Would we honestly consider moving to the CAA??

    I think it's a typo. I believe Ga. St. is who they were talking about.

    In my opinion, the upside of joining the CAA (football) pales in comparison to the downside (travel expenses, etc...).

    If we look at like that we will always have upstart teams passing us by.

    Doesn't make any sense to spend more money just to stay in 1-aa.

    I was speaking in terms of travel costs and other associated costs of joining a new 1-aa conference.

    I agree that putting more money into Paulson is well worth it...as well as long over due.
