  1. Week 9 Column...Wait, week 9? How did we get here so fast?

    Where did the time go? Remember when we were all pulling out our hair in August hoping for any sign of football? Now there is just three weeks left for most of the SAC teams? Unbelievable! But at least we are going to have so much to play for. Isn't is great to see five SAC teams in the top ten? And even for those teams that will be home for the holidays, they get to play spoiler. Saturday puts all five games in North Carolina for the only time this season. Let's go!

    In order of time:

    Week 8 Story lines


    Déjà vu for LRU
    : The Bears and Lions were facing off at 2-1 and 4-0 in the SAC respectively for the second straight year. This year though the game was played in Hickory and it looked like the road team would win for second straight year. But the paws came off for the Lions. Leading 21-3 with 3:30 left in the 3rd quarter, the Lions blinked and there was 14:09 left in the fourth and they were down 31-21. Yep, no typo there. Here we go: LR TD, 3 and out for Lions, ...

  3. Pressure continues to build in another crucial week of the 2012 SAC season

    It's cooling down outside in the south but the South Atlantic Conference season is really heating up as we hit the beginning of the final stretch. Four massive weeks of games remain beginning on Saturday. Believe it or not, we could end up with FIVE teams as SAC Champions. Just humor me a minute and imagine this crazy scenario:

    LR beats Mars Hill and Wingate, loses at Newberry, beats Catawba
    Wingate beats Catawba, loses to LR, beats Tusculum
    Newberry beats Tusculum, LR, ...

  4. Week 7 storylines, helmet stickers, stats, and power rankings.

    South Atlantic Conference = Week 7 Story Lines

    Cat on the loose: The Lions do it again. Another win by one score. If you look at the last two years for Mars Hill in SAC play,(in games excluding Brevard) the Lions have won games by 2,7,3,10,3 in 2011 and 7,6,7 in 2012. That is an average win by 5.6 points per game. I wouldn't say they are squeaking by but they sure do make it interesting. Good teams find ways to win the close games. They had big leads vs WU and CAT but gave up 21 points ...

  5. One goose egg remains after Saturday. Week 6 preview in the SAC

    Another exciting week in the conference.
