Realsportsrealtalk Commentary: MID SEASON GRADES ARE IN……YOUR THOUGHTS?….

As we approach the the mid point of the college football season, let just say things are starting to get a bit fuzzy to the least. Within the Southwestern Athletic Conference , the race to Houston and beyond looks like a NASCAR race in the west but the east looks like a bunch of gumbo. Let’s take a look see…

East Division


1.Jackson State Tigers ( 2-1)…..The Tigers started out slow with loses to UNLV , Tennessee State and Grambling State. However, Tony Hughes kept plugging away as he picked up wins against UAPB and MVSU. QB Brent Lyles has came on as of late as he thrown for 367 yards and 3 Tds. WR Dan Williams has caught 31 balls and 359 yards and 2 TDS. Coming off a bye week, the Tigers welcome a tough Southern team to Jackson. OC Chad Germany looks to have his offense in gear for the Jags.                                                                                                                                                                          


2.  Alcorn State Braves ( 2-2 )….The expectations were for three peat however, with injuries and a new coach, it may seem like the Braves are rebuilding instead of building. Coach Fred Mc Nair has suffered injuries at QB and looks like Frosh Noah Johnson will lead team until Lenooris Footman is back to 100%. Johnson’s 640 yards passing and 4TD’s paces the Braves offense. Question is can Alcorn regain their swagger after losing to UAPB and Grambling………                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    


3.  Alabama A&M ( 1-4)….if any team has under achieve…it’s the Bulldogs. Coach James Spady was expected to have his bulldogs in contention however, this may be his last season in Huntsville …Stay Tuned….                                                                                                                                                                      


4.  Alabama State ( 1-4 )…Alabama State paid a lot of money for Brian Jenkins and it seems like they are not getting what they paid for. After firing former coach Reggie Barlow, many beleived that Jenkins was the answer for winning a SWAC Championship. From the looks of things, it may look like a flop……Can the Hornets finish strong?                                                                                                  


5.  MVSU ( 0-5)…With little to work with and little to do…MVSU is about where they were expected to finish……Coach Rick Comegy has the toughest job in the conference……can he break through at some point…..

West Division




  1. Grambling State Tigers ( 3-0)….The Tigers have made a statement and the G-Men look like their on a mission to run the table. QB DeVante Kincade and WR Chad Williams have been unstoppable thus far…….

su logo

2. Southern University  Jaguars ( 2-0)..With two weeks off the heal and practice, the Jags will be at full throttle heading into Jackson State. QB Austin Howard , RB Lenard Tillary and WR/KR Willie Quinn are unstoppable. If any team can beat GSU, SU has what it takes.


3.  PVAMU ( 4-1)….The Panthers championship season may have came to a crushing halt after losing to Grambling State 36-16. The Panthers still have a shot however, they must improve their play with injured QB Trey Green INTS. The Panthers struggled against Alabama State and that may be a problem if Trey Green don’t get well again…….




Texas_Southern_Tigers_NCAA_Football_39638944.  Texas Southern Tigers ( 3-1)..The surprise of the SWAC thus far is the improvement of the TSU Tigers. Coach Mike Haywood has his Tigers playing great ball after wins over MVSU, Alabama State, and Alabama A&M.  However, the test comes as TSU travels to Alcorn State this weekend. TSU Still has GSU , SU, and JSU to play. We will find out if these Tigers are real….


5.  UAPB Lions ( 1-2)…The Lions started out conference play with a huge upset over Alcorn State in double OT 45-42. Since then , they have gone back to be the toothless Lions…..Can they regain their roar during the second half of the season?

Realsportsrealtalk Commentary : GSU’s Chad Williams aims to be next TIGER NFL entry?……


As we began the 2016 football season, there was a lot to prove by many teams. The Grambling State Tigers coming off a tough loss to Alcorn State in the 2015 SWAC Championship game in Houston, had something to prove. With the loss of All SWAC QB Johnathan Williams and now NFL WR Chester Rogers, WR Chad Williams felt like had had something to prove also.


Williams had a tough off season as he was arrested along with a few other friends in our hometown of Baton Rouge for marijuana possession. It was considered a misdemeanor charge so he was able to re join the Tigers. However, Coach Broderick Fobbs has rules and starting the 2016 season, Williams was suspended for the first game of the season.


After sitting out , Williams wanted to prove his worth in gold. The senior exploded against PAC 12 foe Arizona for 13 catches for 152 yards. The Tigers lead 21-3 at half before losing 31-21. Williams continued his scorching play at Jackson State as he caught 7 balls for 131 yards and 1TD. That game the G-Men dominated JSU 35-14. Williams has played like a man possessed. The senior best game came in a rematch with the Alcorn State Braves. Williams devoured the Braves secondary as he caught 13 balls for 188 yards and 1td. He helped the Tigers get revenge with a 43-18 victory. Williams has caught the eye of the NFL as he continues to move up the NFL potential draft board at the Wide Receiver position.

Grambling_State_Tigers_Helmet01The Tigers traveled to Dallas to take on the Prairie View Panthers in the State Fair Classic. This game was for the lead in the SWAC’s west division. After falling behind 16-0, the G-Men roared back to a 36-16 victory. In that game Williams, came alive to catch 6 balls for 83 yards and 1 td. Going into an open week, Williams is second behind Southern’s Willie Quinn with 39 catches for 554 yards and 3 tds. However, Chad Williams still has plenty of games ahead to increase those numbers. With the addiction of FBS Transfers Montrel Menader and Johnthan Williams , Chad Williams knew that he had to put his stamp as the leader of the Tigers receiving corps. Other returning Tigers were Verlan Hunter ( 17 for 179 and 4tds) and Dominique Leak ( 18 for 269 and 1td ) are also putting their stamp on the G-Men passing game. However, it’s Chad Williams whose making a name but also creating a brand for himself and the NFL scouts to take heed of. Williams goal is a 2016 SWAC championship and a Celebration Bowl victory. He next goal is to join former G-MEN Chester Rogers on Sundays……..

gsuhelment                                 prairie-view-am

As we move into mid season, the college football season has seen it’s twist and turns. However, as the Southwestern Athletic Conference goes, the ” wild, wild ” west will be won either in Texas or possibly on Louisiana soil. This weekend, the Grambling State Tigers take on the Prairie View A&M Panthers in what is billed as the Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic. This game means  a lot in the western division as both the Tigers and Panthers are fighting to stay on top along with the idle Southern University Jaguars. A loss could be damaging as the season goes on for the ticket to Houston. Last year the G-Men survived the massacre 70-56 as they were able to hang on for the rest of the season as the representative of the Western Division on the SWAC Championship Game. 


This year, the G-Men bring a new leader in town as he returns home to Dallas to play in front of his family. QB DeVante Kincade , an Ole Miss transfer has be nothing short of phenomenal as he has taken the Tigers to new heights. Kincade’s numbers reflect his value to the team. His 820 yards passing and 8td’s are tops in the conference. WR Chad Williams has been playing lights out all season. Williams has been Kincade’s top threat as he 33 catches for 471 yards and 2 tds are only second behind Southern’s Willie Quinn. Williams has been a monster as he hopes to continue his terrific play in hope of impressing NFL gurus. RB Martez Carter has been great also. Carter dynamic play has produced nearly 150 yards rushing and 2td’s . The Tigers defense has been great as the have held PAC 12’S Arizona Wildcats to 3 points in the first of their ball game 2 weeks ago. Guy Stallworth’s 27 tackles is tops for the Tigers.


Prairie View A&M has been a history maker all season long. The Panthers opened up their brand smack-in new stadium in front of a national audience with a victory of rival Texas Southern 28-25. After being blasted by SEC Texas A&M 67-0, the Panthers reeled off 2 road victories over Alabama A&M 40-21 and MVSU 56-21. Willie Simmons knows this game will go a long way in determining who will win the west. QB Trey Green’s 819 yards passing and 6TD’s is great. However, his 6 INT’s hurt. WR  KhaDarel Hodge (17 Rec/255 yds/3 TD) leads the passing game. RB  Sta’fon McCray (23 Rush/204 Yds/2 TD) leads the ground game. The Panthers defense will have a tough task slowing down the G-Men potent offense.  Terrence Singleton’S 27 stops leads the Purple Rush. 

With all the pageantry that comes along with this game, it could be another show stopper. However, the loser will have a tough time trying to recover. Southern University will have a lot to say as well. Stay tuned…………
