It's a year of transition for Georgia Southern, which is making its move from Division I-AA to I-A. The Eagles are now members of the Sun Belt Conference but won't be eligible for a bowl until 2015. The team also has a new coach in Willie Fritz, who was at Sam Houston State. He replaces Jeff Monken, who left Statesboro for Army. Fritz is changing the offense from an option attack to one featuring more balance. If you remember, Georgia Southern closed last season with a stunning 26-20 victory at Florida.
