BOONE, N.C. — It's a quiet Sunday afternoon after covering three games in three days — including Saturday's doubleheader of Appalachian State-Virginia Tech and Montana-Tennessee — and I am taking in Bethune-Cookman and Prairie View's matchup on ESPN in the MEAC-SWAC Challenge.
One of these days, I'll make it down to Orlando, Fl. for this classic, but today I am in recuperation mode as I watched Villanova and Temple play in person on Thursday night at the Mayor's Cup game at Lincoln
KNOXVILLE, Tn. — I made the three-hour trek from Blacksburg, Va and Virginia Tech to arrive at historic Neyland Stadium just in time for a major thunderstorm to move through campus.
Shortly after the national anthem, the Tennessee band was moved into a nearby tunnel and fans were asked to take cover. In a nearby parking structure, tailgating tents were being blown around by heavy winds and lightning strikes were flashing throughout the stadium area.
Heavy rain also
AMES, IA--Well, I made the hard drive on I-80 then to I-35 to get to Ames. This is a matchup between the Panthers and Cyclones that could be an upset in my opinion.
Temperatures are at 71 degress but with 94% humidity so this non-climate controlled press box is a bit steamy.
This is the 27th time that these two schools have played with UNI winning just once, in 2007. ISU won 27-0 last year.
UNI brings a wealth of experience back with 10 of its top
BLACKSBURG, Va. — You have to wonder what is going on at one of the country's most renown technological colleges when the wireless Internet runs at a slower speed than dial-up.
Such is the problem at Virginia Tech on the opening Saturday of the college football season as the FCS-No. 13-ranked Hokies take on the No. 2 ranked team in FCS, Appalachian State.
To tell the truth, the problems of the Virginia Tech Internet — being blamed on too much usage by fans in the stands
IOWA CITY, IA--I am in Hawkeye country for the Ohio Valley's Golden Eagle matchup with the Big Ten's Hawkeys for the first half of my double header in this state (will travel to Ames after this to see Northern Iowa play Iowa State tonight). This is the first time TTU has faced a team from the Big Ten Conference. TTU is experienced with 20 starters returning and 31 players that have at least started a game.
TTU is coming off a 5-6 record and 4-4 within OVC play. Iowa was 8-5 last
