  1. CIAA Week : Its Crossover Week #1!

    If you are CIAA fan, you probably are suffering from a case of split personality. In one corner, it’s the North, with the shine of offenses chewing up yards, scoring lots of points, and winning games.In the South, it’s a decidedly darker picture, with impotence spewing everywhere.It’s like having two conferences in one!
