The season is nearly over and all the polls are starting to collect dust and moss but we still have one or two more college polls to roll out before it’s all over. Here are this week’s offerings and some of these teams are done already.
#1)Appalachian State(8-2) LW2-Any team that puts 79 points on the board is one to be feared and it cost Kent Briggs his job at Wetern Carolina after the Catamounts fell 79-35 to the Mountaineers.
#2)Catawba(10-1) LW3-The Indians closed out the regular season with a 45-0 win over Lenior-Rhyne and now await post-season possibilites.
#3)N.C. State(5-5) LW4-There are teams with better records but this is the hottest team in the state right now and the Pack’s 31-27 victory over North Carolina bears that point home. This week the Wolfpack takes a four-game winning streak to Wake Forest.
#4)Wake Forest(6-4) LW1-The Demon Deacons are still good but you wouldn’t know it by looking at the final from Clemson, 44-10 Tigers. WFU has much to do in preparing for NCSU this weekend.
#5)East Carolina(6-5) LW4-The roof came crashing through for ECU when the Thundering Herd of Marshall ran over the Pirates 26-7. ECU is currently in a downward movement.
#6)Winston-Salem State(6-4) LW8-You have to hand it to a team that totally takes care of business against N.C. Central, handing the Eagles a 35-10 whooping and the Rams do not play like lambs, they have a few Thanksgiving hams in their plans. Celebration-on, Eat-on RAMS.
#7)Elon(6-4) LW5-There’s been a let-down from the Phoenix the past couple of weeks with back-to-back losses after Saturday’s missle attack at the Citadel.(a 42-31 EU loss)
#8)Guilford(6-4) LW9-The Quakers finished up their year at home last Saturday with a 21-17 come-from-behind win over Emory & Henry. I hear that Emory plays like a girl but that Henry will kick your butt in a hurry. Guilford sophomore receiver Hagan Miller had 11 catches for 143 yards, breaking the Quaker’s single-season record with 103 receptions. A good way to close out the season for Guilford and public address announcer Harold Moag.
#9)NC Wesleyan(8-2) LW NR-They became the first USA South team to finish undefeated in the conference(7-0) with a 55-14 shellacking of our Greensboro College Pride at Jamieson Stadium last Saturday night.
#10)Davidson(6-4) LW10-The Wildcats were winners over Homer Drew’s old school Valparaiso, with 44-6 the ‘Cats on the prowl.
