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.

It's that time of the year when the school system, from elementary to university level, start the prayers, organize the planning, order the books and stand back for the onrush of hopefully eager and determined students who will learn everything possible in preparation for the day of days!
