  1. CIAA Week 3: It's a Short Week and a Scheduling Fiasco

    The CIAA underwent a lot of cancellations given that Hurricane Florence impacted both North and South Carolina. It will be interesting to see how the conference reacts now that most teams have a nine game schedule. Even more interesting is that this week could impact how teams prepare for the postseason. Qualifying for the D2 playoffs require a team to have won seven games. The most obvious contender for the playoffs would still be Virginia State, who played two FCS games and now had their game ...

    Ladies and gentlemen, loyal readers everywhere: Welcome to week one of the CIAA experience. This part of the schedule always gives me great joy and sadness. The joy comes in with the opportunity to sample the clashes with other conferences and their diverse venues. The sadness is – quite frankly – that the conference as a whole does not do well out of conference.
