Here’s week number two of our poll and we have received confirmation that all of the Appalachian State football players have qualified academically and are eligible for post-season honors.
#1)Appalachian State(2-0) Last week #1..The Mountaineers are the best college team in the Carolinas and they would beat Clemson and Steve’s Gamecocks.
#2)East Carolina(1-1) Last week #4..The Pirates found out the new Pinkney may be better than the old one, James Pinkney.
#3)North Carolina(1-1) Last week #3..The Heels lost to a lesser-known down East team, but now ECU rules Eastern North Carolina football again, but they can not beat Appalachian.
#4)Guilford College(2-0) Last week #6..The Quakers may have the best chance at beating the Neers. Guilford’s Josh Vogelbach could well be the top passing QB in the state. Much better than Jake Delhomme or David Carr.
#5)Catawba(3-0) Last week NR..The Indians won the Salisbury Mayor’s Cup game Saturday defeating Livingstone 46-7. Isn’t that special, you have to believe the Indians are on the war-path again.
#6)Wingate(3-0) Last week NR..The Bulldogs squeezed out a 33-30 victory over Davidson last week and now travel to UNC-Pembroke this Saturday.
#7)UNC-Pembroke(1-1) Last week NR..The Braves held off Greensboro College 26-20 in front of over 4,000 fans and now they meet Wingate at the Lumbee Field this week.
#8)Wake Forest(0-2) Last week #2..WFU is the best 0-2 team in the country. Any arguments? Just look at how hard they played in the first 2 games. At this stage of the season, Kenneth Moore is the ACC Player-of-the-Year, maybe the best in the enitre nation.
#9)N.C. State(0-2) Last week #5..The Pack is fading fast but with Wofford coming to town there may be hope on the way. Bring on the Terriers.
#10)TIE Elon and Greensboro CollegePride(0-1) and the Phoenix are (1-1). Greensboro was #8 Last week and Elon was tied for #6. With the new teams coming in Elon had to drop and we need to keep Greensboro College in the poll as long as we can with the name, GREENSBORO.
