Georgia Southern is a team in transition, moving from the Southern Conference and the FCS ranks to the Sun Belt Conference and the FBS. But for Coach Jeff Monken and his staff, it’s been business as usual as they led the Eagles through preseason in preparation for their SoCon swan song. The focus has been on this season, and this season only. The Eagles will turn their attention to the SBC on Nov. 24, the day after they end the season at Florida.
