COLLEGIATE SOCCER: Rare but sad compliment from Eagle Creek U

Georgia Southern is more fortunate than some in that its season is still on pace to happen. Multiple schools have begun to eliminate their soccer teams in coronavirus-related cost saving measures. The Eagles and the Sun Belt Conference will feel effects of that as Appalachian State was forced to cut its men’s team last month.

“That was very hard to take,” Murphy said. “I know we’re rivals, but no one is happy to see that. App State was a powerhouse back in the 70s and 80s. There are a lot of teams in that area due to how popular App was and how they grew the sport.

“At the same time, it makes me appreciate what we have here in Statesboro. We have great leadership and I feel like we have an efficient and professional setup that is reinforcing all of the good things about our program in challenging times.”


If it happens to the Apps, it happens to me!

App dropping soccer for whatever reasons still sucks.


If you can't take it, don't dish it out

Completely agree....as well as indoor track. I really hate seeing that.
