  5. MEC Week 11 on Thursday -- Fairmont State marches toward the Playoffs!

    It's the week to wrap things up. The election cycle wrapped up for a couple of years, I wrapped up a major inspection at work this week, and now we reach the conclusion of the regular season.

At Fairmont, the Falcons fight to stay in the playoffs. Win, and they're in.

    It's Thursday night, and it's almost time for MEC football! ...
