  1. SAC Football Preview: Week 3

    A lot has happened since I first started writing this last weekend. By now everyone is aware of Hurricane Florence and the potential impact it may bring to our area of the country. It has led to a long list of schedule changes and cancellations and of course that includes the SAC football schedule. As of this publication, only one SAC game is still scheduled for its original time slot. I am happy that the schools and the conference have been able to move things around so we still have a chance to ...

  2. SAC Week 2 Preview: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

    In football, everything is measured in wins and losses. That’s it. Wins and losses. And by those simple metrics, week one for the SAC was as bad as it could be. The SAC teams, UNCP included, went a combined 1-8 in out of conference action over the opening weekend. That’s one win, eight losses. Even if you toss out the FCS games, which is fair to do since they don’t count for regional rankings, 1-5 against D2 isn’t much better. Three months from now, if we end up in the same situation we ...

My wife resigned herself to this understanding a long time ago…

  4. SAC Playoff preview and Week 11 recap

    Nothing worked out the way I thought it would last week. Not on the field and not in the bracket. The biggest news of the final game day in 2017 was Tusculum’s upset of previously undefeated Wingate. The Pioneers played inspired football from start to finish and had a perfect game plan on both sides of the ball. They were able to play to their strengths and took advantage of a quick start to stun Wingate early and never let them recover.

    Several things stood out in that game. One ...

  5. SAC Week 11 Preview

    With only one week left in the regular season, the SAC is still in position to have a major presence in the playoffs. Wingate held onto the number one ranking in Super Region 2 for the third straight week, while Catawba hung onto sixth place (good enough for a post season invitation) and Carson-Newman moved up two spots. As it stands today, The Eagles would not make the field, but we still have a week to play and with just a little bit of help, Carson-Newman could find themselves playing again next ...
