Realsportsrealtalk Midweek Commentary: J-State woes hit rock bottom at 0-6 ?..Who is to blame?

 

 

JSU HELEMNT

JSU sports—

I remember as a kid growing up attending Southern University football games with my grandmother ( MAMA JAG) and when the Jaguars played Jackson State, the match up reminded me of good vs evil, the jedi vs. the dark side and even Dallas Cowboys vs Pittsburgh Steelers. Those games in the late 70’s and throughout the 80’s were great battles, however it was Jackson State would dominate and intimidate as well. Those Tigers would jog onto the field with those red face mask and the Block letter JSU on their helmet and WC Gordon and his Tigers would go to work. Players like Keith Taylor, Sylvester Stamps, Carl Blue, Harold Heath, Kevin Dent, Darion Conner and many more were staples of the Blue Bengal Tigers. During the late 70’s and throughout the 80’s JSU along with Grambling State dominated the Southwestern Athletic Conference. WC Gordon knew how to find talent and talent would find him. The Tigers were getting players who were being recruited by SEC Foes Ole Miss and Mississippi State. Quality talent was rolling in to Tiger headquarters. The Jackson State Tigers were a team to be reckoned with during that era. Athletic Director Wallace Reed and President John Peoples ran a tight ship. The Tigers would pack Veterans Memorial Stadium with huge crowds of nearly 50k or more. When Southern came to town, it would exceed nearly 60k with the battle of the bands being added to the bill. Now as we speed into 2017, the Jackson State Tigers are a shell of themselves.

Gone are the glory days of Gordon and Reed. Now, the ship is lead by AD Wheeler Brown , a transplant from North Carolina A&T and a mid aged recruiting guru from Mississippi State named Tony Hughes. Brown took over an athletic department that was going no where when former AD Vivian Fuller ran the ship. Fuller did clean up the APR mess but she also fired Rick Comegy, JSU’s last winning football coach. From there, the Tiger program nearly hit rock bottom. Harold Jackson coached the Tigers for 2 years and to avail did nothing. Brown was hired to fix things and one of the thing he did was bring in Hughes, a local favorite who had recruiting ties in the state to get the Tigers going. Hughes promised changes and better results. After a 3-8 season, things looked up as Hughes and OC Chad Germany pulled in a good crop of recruits. However, after a 63-0 shellacking from TCU , question marks started to surface. Another loss to rival Tennessee State followed by a loss to Grambling State followed by loss after loss. The Blue Bengal Nation was left wondering if the JSU administration made a terrible mistake. Things went from bad to worse when Tuskegee, a division II HBCU school walloped the Tigers 34-7 just this past weekend. Losing to Tuskegee was a hard pill to swallow for the once proud program. Questions surfaced and folks are demanding answers. Whos is to blame? Do we blame Wheeler Brown ? Do we blame Tony Hughes. Do we blame Chad Germany? Do we blame the defensive staff? The Tiger Nation wants answers…..Heading into this weeks showdown against a rising and always tough Southern University Jaguars team will be a huge challenge. Hughes has gotten support from Brown. Hughes has also made changes on his staff signaling the possible exit of former OC and now Co-OC Chad Germany. Time will tell. Can JSU rite the ship now or another loss would put the Tigers in the history books at a possible 2-9 or and 0-11 season. Stay tuned.

Week 7 of college football means that we are at the midpoint and October will be the make it or break it month for many teams trying to participate in post season. Withing the Southwestern Athletic Conference, week 7 presents another make it or break it scenario which includes Coach Willie Simmons and his PVAMU Panthers, fresh off a tough loss to Grambling , needing a win to stay in the chase for post season. However, the Panthers must travel to Lorman, Mississippi and tangle with Coach Fred McNair and his east leading Alcorn State Braves. Simmons, a former OC under former coach Jay Hopson isn’t a stranger to the reservation. Simmons knows all the ends and outs of the territory as he recruited almost 50% of the remaining Braves on that roster. PVAMU will turn too QB  Lavell McCullers who has passed for 848 yards and 5 scores. RB Dawonya Tucker and Sta’Fon McCray form a 1-2 punch as the have combined for 469 rushing and 7 scores. WR Darius Floyd , Khadarel Hodge and Joshua Simmons former a 3 headed monster in the Panthers receiving corps. Anthony Stubbs paces the defense with 36 tackles.

MVSU (1-4 1-1)  at AAMU (2-4, 2-1)

Coach Comegy’s Delta Devils fresh off an upset win at UAPB will try for another upset victory when MVSU travels to Huntsville, Alabama to take on the AAMU Bulldogs. MVSU has seemed to have found a QB in Dewayne Betts who has passed for 520 yards and 5 scores. Betts put on a show at UAPB. WR Quinn McFresh and Steven McCintosh leads the receiving corps with nearly 600 yards and 3 scores combined. AAMU , fresh off at pasting at Southern looks to rebound and stay in the mix in the east behind Alcorn State. QB Aqeel Glass paces the Bulldog offense with 861 yards passing and 3 scores. WR Octavious Miles and Isiah Bailey leads the receiving corps with nearly 500 yards and 3 scores combined.

Realsportsrealtalk Prediction…..AAMU 24-21

 

Image result for alabama state football helmet  at Image result for texas southern football helmet

Alabama State (0-5, 0-2)  at Texas Southern (0-5, 0-2)

The Hornets enter this game with a new head coach and hopefully a renewed sense of purpose. Brian Jenkins was fired last week and Donald Hill-Eley takes over for the remainder of the season. With Hill-Eley , I do expect some tweaking on both sides of the ball. However, playing in Houston vs a Texas Southern team not only searching for their first win, but will be celebrating their homecoming also. ASU will counter with QB Kobie Jones, 429 yards passing and 2 scores. TSU on the other hand will bring on QB Dominic Delira 417 yards . WR Darvin Kirsey’s 27 balls for 377 yards and 2 scores is another Tiger threat.

Realsportsrealtalk Prediction…….TSU 24-17

Central State(0-6. 0-3)  at UAPB (2-4, 1-2)

Central State Marauders have struggled all year and are seeking their first win of the year. However, that may be a tough task on the road at UAPB. CSU is paced by QB Trent Mays 1, 025 yards passing and 4 scores. RB Tarrias Saffold 513 yards rushing and 2 scores paces the ground game. WR Lavon Meeks 26 balls and 337 yards and 2 scores leads CSU receiving corps. UAPB is fresh off a home loss to MVSU and will be looking to get back in the win column hosting winless CSU. UAPB QB Brandon Duncan’s 524 yards passing and 3 scores leads the Lions. RB Kershaw Williams 396 and 4 scores leads the ground game. 

Realsportsrealtalk Prediction……UAPB 42-2

Jackson State (0-5, 0-2)  VS Tuskegee (4-2. 3-0)

Coach Tony Hughes hasn’t seen really anything to smile about. Taking on Division II Tuskegee University still doesn’t bring a smile to his face. Hughes knows that those Tigers from Alabama have defeated SWAC foe Alabama State 14-6 in Montgomery. He also knows that Tuskegee presents more problems then many of the SWAC teams they have played thus far. JSU will counter with QB Brent Lyles, 635 yards passing and 1 score. RB Jordan Johnson 292 yards rushing and 2 scores leads the ground game. Tuskegee will counter with QB Jamarcus Ezell 460 yards passing and 1 score. RB Ezell along with Hoderick Lowe leads the Tigers ground game. This can be an ugly game, however anything could happen.

Realsportsrealtalk Prediction…..JSU 21-17….

Realsportsrealtalk Mid Week Commentary: THE BUCK STOPS HERE !! SOMETHING GOTS TO GIVE?…ALABAMA STATE OR TEXAS SOUTHERN?

                                       Image result for alabama state football helmet

Donald Hill-Eley

—ASU sports info

 

Both Alabama State and Texas Southern were picked to finish either near the top or in the middle of the pack. No one in their right mind figure that both of these teams heading into week 7 would be a combined 0-10. Alabama State started the season with high hopes as the Hornets were picked 2nd in the eastern division of the SWAC. However, after dropping on opening season loss to division II Tuskegee, things went down hill from there. Coach Brian Jenkins was paid a hefty salary to get the Hornets back to contention but, he lost his support system starting with the former Alabama State president, Gwendolyn Boyd who was ousted last last year. With a new president on board, things began to get worse. Former A.D. Melvin Hines was relieved of his duties just last week and that was sort of the writing on the wall for Jenkins. After suffering a Thursday night loss to Alcorn State on national T.V., the Hornets new president, pulled the plug on Jenkins ending their 4 year partnership. The Hornets will turn to interim head coach Donald Hill-Eley, a veteran with over 20 years of head coaching experience most notably at Morgan State University. Hill-Eley  spent 13 seasons at Morgan State (2001-13). After his first season as offensive coordinator, Eley spent the final 12 as head coach and was named 2002 MEAC Coach of the year. His 59 wins rank third all-time in Bears’ history. Hill-Eley also  spent four seasons at Hampton (1997-2000) as offensive coordinator and pro liaison, helping the Pirates win an HBCU National Championship, two MEAC titles, and the 1999 Heritage Bowl. Hill-Eley brings professional experience to the table as he spent four seasons in professional football in the Canadian Football League, first with the Baltimore Stallions (1994-95) as receivers coach before two seasons with the Toronto Argonauts as a guest coach (1996-97). Hill was on the staff of three straight Grey Cup championship teams (1995-97) during his time in the CFL. With all this experience, can Hill-Eley put together a game plan that would get them a much needed win down in Houston. I do expect to see a few new wrinkles in both their offense and defensive schemes. The Hornets have nothing to lose.

Texas Southern on the other hand will be seeking their first win of the season plus it’s the schools 95th Homecoming game. The Tigers will welcome back alumni and friends back to campus as well as to BBVA Compass Stadium for the game. Coach Mike Haywood’s Tigers has struggled this year trying to find the right chemistry to put on the field. Losing a few players in the process, Haywood turned to incoming freshmen as well as many underclassmen at certain positions and it showed in their 0-5 campaign thus far. With QB Jay Christophe struggling, Haywood turned to Dominic Delira to lead the Tigers offense. RB Brad Woodard has struggled as of late as opposing defenses have shut down TSU ground game. WR Darvin Kirsey is the only bright spot on offense for the Tigers as he has benefitted from the ground game stoppage grabbing 27 balls for 377 yards and 2 scores. The Tigers defense is having issues as the youth movement has hurt the Tigers. Veterans Dontrell Dobbins and Sean Jones are the bright spots on TSU’s defense.

Realsportsrealtalk Midweek Commentary : Can PV finally beat the G-MEN? I Believe they can….

 

Image result for state fair classic grambling v. prairie view a&m october 7

PVAMU has a rich tradition of HBCU football just like Grambling. The only stinging glare is the Panthers 80 game losing streak which dates back to 1989-1998 , chronicled via ESPN. However, since the 2009 season , the Panthers finally broke through with a 25-32 victory on a rain soaked Cotton Bowl over the Tigers. Since then, PVAMU managed a few more wins , however since PVAMU’s Willie Simmons and GSU’s Broderick Fobbs teams have played, its been all GSU dominating, even with the Panthers jumping out to a 16-0 lead, the Tigers scored 36 points to win last years matchup.

However, this year seems different to me. I have watched both teams and I see that PVAMU might have an edge as it regards to being healthier and hungrier. I really believe the Coach Willie Simmons and his Panthers have something to prove and this is the game to prove it. Let’s start with PVAMU’s offense. QB Lavell McCullers, a juco transfer has taken the reins as starter and has been solid for the Panthers. McCullers has passed for 654 yards and 3 scores thus far. He also has rushed for 285 yards and 1 score. RB Dawonya Tucker and Sta’Fon McCray poses a double threat as both have combined  for nearly 500 yards and 7 scores combined. WR Khadarel Hodge , Darius Floyd and Markcus Hardy form one of the conference best receiving core.

Defensively for the Panthers,  Anthony Stubbs leads the way with 29 stops.  Jalyn Williams and Jaylen Harris have 21 and 16 tackles respectively. In the game against Alabama State, the Panther defense shut out the Hornets 34-0 and kept ASU off the board. In the Jackson State game, the Panthers defense came to life as it caused havoc to JSU’s offense forcing several turnovers resulting into points for Coach Simmons high powered offense.

Coach Broderick Fobbs and his G-MEN are no means down this year. The Tigers have one of the best QB in FCS , DeVante Kincaide who would be a thorn in anyone’s defensive plans. RB Martez Carter , also can cause problems need be. Kincade has passed for 947 yards and 5 scores. He has also rushed for 124 yards and 1 score as well. Kincaide and PVAMU’s McCullers are alike as both are considered to be dual QB’s. Carter on the other hand can be a dangerous weapon for the Tigers in many ways. Carter has rushed for 313 yards and 4 scores. He is also a great return guy that can be deadly. WR Darrell Clark leads a bevy of receivers in the G-MEN corps that can get the job done.

Defensively, Coach Everett Todd’s G-MEN have not stopped. The Tigers play intense defense lead by D’Arious Christmas 38 tackles. Montrel Meader, a converted WR is second with 25 tackles. The G-MEN have 2 others with 23 tackles. The Tigers will be tested by PVAMU’s spread and read option offense. 

Coach Willie Simmons pride himself on getting PVAMU over the hump and this game against the Grambling Tigers may be the one to propel him along with his Panthers into the fore front in the west. The G-MEN will have to get up for the game as well. Beating the Panthers 3 straight years may cause them to get a little complacent. My take……..PVAMU breaks through 34-31.

G-MEN/PV WIN …SHOWDOWN SET…..AAMU SURPRISES….JAGS GET MUCH NEEDED WIN…….JSU/TSU WOES CONTINUE…..

FBBethuneSack

Week 5 of the college football season provided a few upsets….surely Troy University appreciates the nearly 1 million pay out from LSU , but the Trojans didn’t expect a victory that came along with the pay out. Well in SWAC play surprises are always in store in this conference. Looking at AAMU, no one predicted the Bulldogs would be 2-0 in conference play heading into the mid point of the season. Coach James Spady’s Bulldogs defeated UAPB 27-14. AAMU was paced by QB Aqeel Glass 291 yards passing. RB Trevon Walters rushed for 83 yards and 2 scores.

Coach Broderick Fobbs took his Tigers to Chicago to battle Kevin Ramsey and the Clark Panthers in the 20th addition of the Chicago Classic. QB DeVante Kincaid , resting for the big showdown in Dallas came off the bench to lead the G-MEN to a 31-20 victory. Kincaid passed for 230 yards and 3 scores. Clark’s QB Johnathan McCrary passed for 371 yards and 2 scores to pace the Panthers. With the victory, the G-MEN can now focus on the PVAMU Panthers in the State Fair Classic in Dallas. 

Speaking of PVAMU, the Panthers warmed up for the huge game by throttling lowly Jackson State at home 38-9. PVAMU was paced by QB Lavell McCullers passed for 190 yards and 2 scores. RB Dawana Tucker and Stephon McCray both scored also. With the victory, Coach Simmons and his Panthers can turn their attention to the G-MEN.  Both teams enter the State Fair Classic with 2-0 conference records and usually, the winner has the inside track to the west division crown.

WILDCATS FELL 31-14 TO SOUTHERN

The west crown can not be just yet handed to the winner of the GSU/PV match up without mentioning the Southern Jaguars. Though, hosting non conference foe Fort Valley State , the Jags got a much needed win 31-14 victory to continue momentum for next weeks homecoming showdown with undefeated 2-0 AAMU coming to town. Sitting at 0-1, the Jags know that each win is a must. RB Herb Edwards rushed for 141 yards to pace the Jags. 

Strong second half leads Bucs to 58-7 win over Mississippi Valley State

MVSU traveled to South Carolina to take on Charleston Southern and didn’t fair to well against the Buccaneers. Trailing on 10-7 at half, CSU scored 48 unanswered points in the second half to win 58-7 over the Devils. MVSU offense stalled the second half and it was big play after big play for the Bucs who ran the table on MVSU’S defense.

On Friday, Alcorn State visited Texas Southern and TSU gave the Braves all they could handle falling 24-17. Alcorn was paced by Lenooris Footman’s 241 yards passing and 1 score. RB Delance Turner rushed for 115 yards. WR Nolando Veals caught 6 balls for 140 yards and 1 score. TSU was paced by QB Dominic Delira’s 163 yards passing.  Alcorn sits atop of the east tied with AAMU 2-0. TSU still remains winless on the season….
