Good morning, OK, Let’s get to it…..2014 SWAC season is nearing the end. Alcorn State has already punched it’s ticket to Houston. The Braves welcome the Jackson State Tigers to the Reservation as they meet for the annual SOUL BOWL. Coach Hopson has done an grande ole job in making the Braves a team to be reconded with. Lead by QB John Gibbs, the offense is deadly. The Braves defense lead by Coordinator Coach Peck, has been nothinh BUT solid. Jackson State is coming off a win at Texas Southern. However, things have gone awful for the Blue Bengals. Once a contender, the Tigers hired Harold Jackson and he has not lived up to expectations. Sitting at 4-6 IS NOT WHAT the doctor ordered. QB Tivy and WR Dan Williams makes the Tigers go. Well in this game , I see the Braves trying to make a statement to Southern and Grambling…BOLDLY……..Braves 63-7 OVER JSU……….In other games:
AAMU at UAPB
This game will be a game of sorts. The Bulldogs under first year head coach John Spady must move the chains against an upsstart UAPB team. Spady’s Pistol offense must be firing on all cylinders if the want to end the season on a good note. However, facing the coach that was fired, ANTHONY JONES want be easy. Jones has dealt with tough situations as he suffered the loss of his son last month. However, Coach Coleman and the Lions have been a breath of fresh air for Jones and family. QB BEN ANDERSON makes the Lions go….Playing at home will give the Lions much added incentive to win. My Take…..LIONS 31-17 …..
STILLMAN at Alabama State.
Stillman comes in at 5-5 and can beat the Hornets in this family affair. This will be the 91st annual TURKEY DAY CLASSIC between both of these teams. This year will be a little different. The game will be played the Saturday after Thanksgiving which would allow the students to spend Thanksgiving with their families. The Hornets are trying to finsish a once SWAC championship goal season with a winning season for Coach Reggie Barlow who seems to believe that he will return next season. But who knows what will happen Monday. Stay tuned…………www.realsportsrealtalk.wordpress.com
