2014 SoCon Week 8 Recap

Rhapsody TrialThe Southern Conference Standings are starting to take shape with Western Carolina and Chattanooga remaining unbeaten atop the standings and Wofford just a game behind. All 3 had impressive road wins on Saturday to maintain their position while everyone else jockies for position from 4-8. There is still a lot of football to be played but the November 1 showdown between Chattanooga and Western Carolina is looming just two weeks away. Both teams have to be careful with trap games (Mercer at UTC/Citadel at WCU) this week though with both at home it seems likely we will get our battle of unbeatens in Cullowhee in two weeks.

Western Carolina

2014 SoCon Week 8 Preview: Western Carolina at Mercer

Western Carolina makes their first trip to Macon, Georgia on Saturday to take on the Mercer Bears. The Cats enter tied atop the conference at 2-0 while the Bears enter at 1-2 in the SoCon. Mercer has been extremely competitive with a win at VMI and narrow losses to Furman and Samford. Western has knocked off Furman and Wofford to get the conference’s full attention. Neither of these teams are going to sneak up on anyone from here out, this should be a very interesting game. Read more

2014 SoCon Week 8 Preview: Wofford at Samford

Samford hosts Wofford on Saturday afternoon with both trying to stay within a game of conference unbeaten Chattanooga and Western Carolina. For the Terriers the conversation this week has surrounded the injury to QB Evan Jacks with reports varying from out of the season to he could play this week. I have heard nothing conclusive out of Spartanburg but prevailing opinion is that he will not play this week. For Samford, its all about the rushing game on offense and stopping the rush on defense. Circumstances would make the Bulldogs the favorite, but the Terriers have a habit of keeping games close and giving themselves a chance to win. Read more

2014 SoCon Week 8 Preview: Furman at South Carolina

Furman began the season with high hopes to once again competing for the conference championship. At 1-1 in the SoCon the Paladins are still in the conference mix, but early season offensive struggles have Coach Fowler’s squad 2-4 heading to Williams Brice to take on the Gamecocks. South Carolina has their own problems at 3-3 overall coming off a pair of SEC losses. Neither team feels like they’ve lived up to their potential but the Gamecocks have a lot more to lose here than the Paladins. Furman should just let it fly and see what happens. Read more

Altamonte Springs, Florida offensive lineman Justus Basinger has chosen the Wofford Terriers. Justus (6-4, 285) was 2nd team all-conference as a junior and Top Performer at the NUC Top Prospect Camp.

2014 SoCon Week 7 Preview: Austin Peay at Mercer

Mercer is hosting Ohio Valley doormat Austin Peay. AP has not won since 2012 at 0-5 in 2014 after going winless in 2013. The Bears are coming off perhaps their best defensive effort of the season, holding Samford to just 21 points in a narrow loss. Coach Lamb, his staff, and team should be commended for reaching this level of play so quickly. I don’t think anyone is surprised at the level of talent on the team, what is so impressive is the way they have been able to gel as a unit despite resuming football just a season ago. Read more
