Black College football trends beginning to develop

Week three of the Black College football season is in the books and there are some interesting trends that are starting to develop.

It appears that South Carolina State and Florida A&M are the class of the MEAC. The Bulldogs followed their win over Grambling last week with a 24-3 thumping of Bethune-Cookman. The Rattlers improved to 2-0 with a 24-point win at Winston-Salem State.

In the SWAC, Grambling bounced back from its loss to S.C. State by defeating Northwestern State 38-17 while Alabama A&M, which won at Tennessee State in its opener, added another win by defeating Hampton 31-24

Albany State remained perfect in the SIAC with an easy victory over Stillman while Atlanta University Center schools Clark Atlanta and Morehouse recorded victories. In the CIAA, Shaw improved to 3-0 with an eight-point win over Concordia.

So, what are your thoughts following this weekend’s games? Let everyone know what you think.

It would really be nice if our main newspaper in Atlanta our AJC would do more towards their Division II football teams. AJC can do writes up on the major colleges and the high school teams. But, they just throw Clark and Moreshouse to the curb. These guys play good ball. Where is the support for these teams, they are a big part of your city. AJC needs to stand up and let these schools know that they are important and supported too!!

As I discussed earlier, the MEAC will be decided between SC State and FAMU. Being an alumni of SC State, my loyalty belongs with Dogs. If either teams manage to go undefeated until they meet on Oct 17th, it’s going to be one hell of a showdown in Orangeburg. I do not like FAMU but I do respect them, however; I think that State’s defense and special teams will make the difference in the game. My prediction is State will pull off the victory 24 to 17. Again, this game will be much closer than my prediction indicates.

This is Albany State Rams year; look for them to win the NCAA D2 Championship. They can run, pass, and play defense.

Hey Y’all:

Delaware State University (DSU) of the MEAC will be playing the University of Delaware (UD) this week. This is the first time DSU and UD played in a regular season game since they have been in existance in Delaware (almost 100 years). UD was “forced” to play DSU (10-1) in the I-AA playoff 3 years ago wherein DSU lost. UD had “Flacko” who now is the starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens. This game has historical signifance in black history for the state of Delware as was with S.C. State when they first got the opportunity to play Univ. of S. C. Therefore, y’all cheer for a win for Delaware State University. We hope they make black college football, especially in the MEAC, “PROUD”.

GO DELAWARE STATE UNIVERSITY HORNETS!! BEAT THE UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE BLUE HENS.
