ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Georgia Southern ran 21 plays in the first half and put up 23 yards against Navy Saturday the home opener for the Midshipmen.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – When Georgia Southern got set to kick off against Navy Saturday afternoon at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, it was supposed to be all about the triple-option offense run by both teams.
Navy began the season with high expectations. First, there was going to be 10 wins, perhaps an undefeated season. A Heisman Trophy candidacy for quarterback Ricky Dobbs. A funny thing happened on the way to the forum. A funny thing called Maryland. The underdog Terrapins, coming off a 2-10 season, took advantage of numerous Midshipmen mistakes and pinned a crushing 17-14 season opening loss on Navy last Monday. The Middies did ...
Both teams run the same triple-option offense, so both defenses will have the same goal Saturday when Navy plays host to Georgia Southern.

That win was for you. That one was for the folks who couldn't believe the option was gone but still came to every game from 2006 until 2009. You dressed in blue on Saturdays and cheered at the top of your lungs even though everything that was happening felt just a little bit off. <p class="MsoNormal" style="margin: 0in ...
It was the first time Georgia Southern ran the triple option in four long years, but as the Eagles knocked off visiting Savannah State 48-3 in the season opener Saturday at Paulson Stadium, that wasn't the only first.
The Savannah State Tigers have gone through a lot of turmoil this past offseason.
The level of play is higher, but Robert Brown said other than that nothing has really changed.
For most teams, opening week is a good time to see how you match up against non-conference opponents and get a feel for where you're at. One Southern Conference team will find itself immediately behind the eight ball, as Appalachian State and Chattanooga open the season with a league game at Chattanooga at 3 p.m. on SportSouth.

Alexis Sams was thrown to the wolves as a freshman during the 2012-13 season for the Georgia Southern women's basketball program.
