Men's soccer plays North Florida today
        The Georgia Southern men's soccer team takes on non-conference opponent North Florida in Jacksonville, Fla., today.  The game has been rescheduled from 7 p.m. to 5 p.m.
        The Eagles (7-3-3, 3-1-2), ranked No. 9 in the South Regional standings, come off a recent 2-0 win at Wofford.  The SoCon shutout is the Eagles' sixth of the season, and is a school record fifth in conference play.
        The shutout is keeper Adam Webb's fifth of the 2006 campaign and 12th of his career, which moves him into first in the GSU men's soccer career record book, surpassing former player and coach, Kevin Chambers.
        North Florida (3-9-1, 1-4-0 A-Sun) comes off a recent 1-0 loss to Atlantic Sun opponent Belmont on.
        "I know North Florida is going to be well prepared and organized," said head coach Kevin Kennedy.  "This match will be an opportunity for us to continue to prepare for our final conference game with Davidson (on Saturday)."
        The Eagles enjoyed a week off from a challenging stretch of three Southern Conference games within six days.
        "We needed that break, physically and mentally," explained Kennedy.  "It was mentally exhausting to play three conference games in a row.  Were excited to get back on the field after a week's break."
        In only three meetings, the Ospreys and Eagles have an even 1-1-1 record, with a recent 1-1 tie at Eagle Field (Sep. 9, 2005).

Stafford's in for UGA
        ATHENS - Georgia, looking to break its first two-game home losing streak since 1995, will start freshman Matthew Stafford at quarterback in Saturday's home game against Mississippi State, coach Mark Richt announced Monday.
        Stafford will be making his third start. He also started against Alabama-Birmingham and Colorado when senior Joe Tereshinski was out with a sprained ankle.
        Tereshinski, who began the season as the starter, has started in the Bulldogs' back-to-back losses to Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Georgia (5-2 overall, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) fell out of the Top 25 with the losses.

Monday's NLCS was game rained out
        ST. LOUIS - So much for all the scrutiny about pitching on short rest.
        Daylong rain caused Game 5 of the NL championship series between New York and St. Louis to be postponed Monday night, meaning Mets lefty Tom Glavine and Jeff Weaver of the Cardinals will start tonight on full rest.
        The teams are tied at two games each in the best-of-seven playoff. Game 5 was rescheduled for 8:19 p.m. EDT at Busch Stadium.
        For the second time in the NLCS, the clubs will travel without a day off. They'll play Game 6 at Shea Stadium in New York on Wednesday night, as scheduled.

Uribe wanted in shooting
        SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic - Dominican authorities were seeking Juan Uribe after issuing an arrest warrant Monday for the Chicago White Sox shortstop in connection with the shooting of two men.
        Uribe and a bodyguard are suspected of shooting and wounding a Dominican farmer and a captain in the Italian Navy with a pistol and a shotgun when the pair walked too close to Uribe's jeep around midnight Friday, authorities said.
        The navy captain, Dondolin Alessandro, was treated for wounds to his stomach and hands. The farmer, Antonio Gonzalez Perez, had an elbow injury.
        The Dominican athlete's brother, Elpidio, and an unnamed bodyguard of Uribe's were arrested Sunday, Lugo said.

Duke's Paulus is out indefinitely
        Duke point guard Greg Paulus is out indefinitely with a foot injury, though it's not known if the Blue Devils captain will miss any games.
        The sophomore injured his left foot Saturday, the second day of practice, team spokesman Jon Jackson said. Paulus apparently first injured the foot during high school, and reaggravated it over the weekend near the end of the workout.
        Paulus, who was re-evaluated at the Duke University Medical Center on Monday, will not need surgery. Instead, he is expected to follow a rehabilitation plan and make a complete recovery, the school said in a news release.
