Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association
Week 4 The last week of OCC games gave us some interesting perspective on some teams. Additionally it gave us a measuring stick of how we measure up against D2 talent outside of the conference. CIAA teams went 5-6 this includes the crossover game (FSU-VUU).
What we have learned so far.
∑ Livingstone can score, but has yet to play a quality opponent but confidence is a funny thing. They may actually believe that they can win now.
Week 2 Are we finally turning the corner? CIAA teams had a good showing last week as it pertains to out of conference scheduling results. This past week CIAA teams played a fairly respectable OCC schedule resulting in 4 wins (LC, LU, VUU, WSSU). All of these wins I would consider good wins for the programs with the exceptions of the VUU win against a NAIA team not to mention Chowanís win that counts as a OCC win for conference play.

Whew!!! What an off-season so many changes affecting so many teams throughout the league. Iíll do my best to hit the major transactions that did not happen on the field but they directly affect what will happen on the field this year. Being institutions of higher Education our jobs are to educate students first and athletics are an added bonus and brings another facet of collegiate life. Most of the things I will touch on in this blog speak to the things that will affect the product

Well that its folks, CIAA football is over and itís officially basketball season a sport that the CIAA is more nationally recognized for. However, there is a little bit left to put to rest. In my preview this year I spoke of how special teams could be the difference for teams in the CIAA. Many teams in the CIAA do not focus much on special teams outside of the return game. It is well known to CIAA followers that WSSUís chink in the amour was their special teams play overall.

Itís the battle of the RAMS. In this corner we have upstart Shepherd Rams who are 10-0. Shepherd is a solid team and has a decent defense. While in the other corner we have the 2 time defending Regional Champion Winston-Salem State Rams. The winner of this game will be in prime position to win the entire regions as this bracket is the stronger of the two with #1 Shepherd and #4 Winston- Salem and we all know the story of how WSSU got to #4 still shaking my head on that one.
