  1. The Second Season Begins

    Well, I never imagined it would happen. But, it did.

    At the end of last season I thought to myself, it would be such a cool storyline if West Florida could have a strong year in 2017 and somehow defeat West Georgia to end the season on a high note. The exact opposite of last year.

    Little did I know, right?

  2. CIAA Championship Week and All-Conference Controversies

    Let’s play a game.

    Suppose I were to give you a couple of stat lines. Who would you choose as an all-conference player?

    Player #1: 49 Tackles, 1.5 Sacks, 2 Tackles for loss, and No interceptions

    Player #2: 40 Tackles, 1 Sack, 3 Tackles for loss, and 1 interception

    Player #3: 70 Tackles, 2 sacks, 13.5 Tackles for Loss, 2 interceptions

  3. CIAA Week 8 - The State of the Conference address

    The pretext for this week’s dialogue really starts about two years ago. The occasion was Spring Ball 2015 and one particular team was looking to find a new signal caller.

One particular quarterback was deemed academically ineligible during spring ball, a second was deemed so after spring ball, and the third went on to be the starter.

    The team referenced here is Winston-Salem State. Quarterback number one was Justin Johnson, ...

  4. CIAA Week 7 - The game of the year is here!

    Life in the CIAA sometimes leaves our heads scratching. One particular area of concern within the conference is officiating. Games should be decided by the players and less by the zebras. There’s no doubt that officials have a tough job to do when it comes to getting calls right and the lack of instant replay makes those decisions harder.

  5. CIAA Week 6 - Divisional Play Begins

    Special teams. In the CIAA, they are known to create and destroy fortunes in one fell swoop. Special team follies happen with such regularity that you actually tune in to these plays just to see which team will blink first. Such was the case last Saturday. This week’s victim was Elizabeth City State University.

    In the third quarter of last week’s contest, the Vikings lined up to punt after stalling on their own 25. They ended up botching the punt and losing 12 yards on ...
