Former Eagles emerge to check out 'Hatch Attack'

The Georgia Southern Eagles have been through a lot over these past few years. New offenses, new defenses, new coaches and new transfers have completely changed the look of the once-dominant Eagles, and with all of the wholesale changes to the program, the 3-8 2006 season left a bad taste in the mouths of many fans.
