CSN West

Just starting the blog. I will try to get some FCS West team info here in the off-season and some possible national news that pertains to any or all of the CSN West teams.

    I agree with our old CSN friend Dave Coulson that WIU handled this situation about as poorly ...
  4. Just getting started

    I have been covering FCS football for the past six years or so. As most of fans, I believe this is the best level of play and has the best system of the playoffs of determining our champion.

    As most will say, I am biased to my side of the country's teams. I will be trying ...
