It is promoting diversity and inclusion, etc. It seems like on any other social media site just the mention of those words flares up both sides. I was hoping it doesn’t. I really think it’s a great thing to promote.

Opportunity Bowl

EKUs game versus Western Carolina on November 21st has been dubbed the Opportunity Bowl and will become an annual event. Winning team gets trophy and rings.

Re: Central Arkansas

These "Cardiac Colonels" are killing me! 3 straight games down to the wire...finally we get the bounces! Our team has really come together over the past 4-5 weeks! The Defense can play with most anyone at the FCS level...early in the year I didn't think our D had the manpower to play this tough! Ho...

Re: Central Arkansas

Great job pulling one out that we deserved to lose in the 2nd half. We really need to spend some time in the off season with football 101. Fielding a kickoff at the 10 as you run out of bounds, when we tried to run the clock before they scored, we scramble and sprint to the sideline to stop the clo...

Re: Expectations vs. Troy

Although I don’t have an exact number, Pretty sure that more than 4 opted out this season. I’ve mentioned this before on this board but, just looking at how things have played out, I think the goal is to move up into the FBS division (and this would be a good time to do so) in the fall. Wells was o...

Re: Expectations vs. Troy

The schools can choose to extend scholarships, for guys that are on the high end it allows another year, for a lot of guys that things done work out great, they will still graduate and move on, it could really help us for a few years. Exactly. One of the reasons (I personally think) that this staff...

Re: Expectations vs. Troy

Looking back on today, had a couple realizations. 1. I was angry at the end of the game, We were playing a good team from a division above ours and We did enough to win today, looking back now that's a great sign. 2. This teams has progressed SO FAR during this season, after week 1 I was worried if...
