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. The arrival of first-year head coach Chris Hatcher to the Eagle football family seems to have re-energized the fan base and the program as a whole, and Saturday GSU fans and former players were given a glimpse of the "Hatch Attack" in action.

I am not a doctor. I don't even play one on television, but since being diagnosed with cancer I have seen plenty of doctors. Therefore I feel fairly knowledgeable about what it is like to experience the dreaded disease.

Back then, I could sit in a crowded room with him and a lot of other visitors and prisoners trying to communicate by almost shouting over the crowd noise. I asked him, "What happened?"
