Bobby Lamb has been there before, but in 1982 it was in another role. The Furman coach leads the Paladins to Columbia, S.C. Saturday to face the South Carolina Gamecocks. The last time he was there in '82 he was the freshman backup quarterback to David Charpia at Furman, and he watched from the sideline as the Paladins defeated South Carolina 28-23 in what he calls one of the biggest wins in ...
In 2009, Georgia Southern gave up an average of 27.5 points per game.

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 ...

Six different Georgia Southern Eagles scored their first-career rushing touchdown in Saturday's 48-3 win over Savannah State, and 11 different players carried the football.
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. "Our opponent in that first game is a pretty good one," ...
