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.

2014 SoCon Week 6 Preview: The Citadel at Wofford

Wofford and Citadel each kick off their conference schedule on Saturday at Gibbs Stadium in Spartanburg, SC. The Terriers enter at 2-2 with wins over North Greenville and Virginia Wise while the Bulldogs got their first win over Gardner Webb last week in Charleston to improve to 1-3. This is always an interesting match-up between two traditional run oriented, option attacks. Wofford has beaten their cross state foes 15 consecutive seasons dating back to a 1998 win by The Citadel. Could this be the year? Read more

2014 SoCon Week 5 Preview: Gardner Webb at The Citadel

Gardner Webb continues their SoCon heavy non-conference schedule with a trip to Charleston to play The Citadel Bulldogs. GW has already played Furman (lost 13-3) and Wofford (won 43-36) with The Citadel and VMI still to play. The Citadel, ironically enough, has played a heavy Big South non-conference schedule with losses to Coastal Carolina and Charleston Southern already on the books. This is an interesting match-up simply for the contrast in style of play with the run heavy triple option attack of The Citadel vs. the spread attack of GW. Read more

2014 SoCon Week 4 Recap

It was a difficult day for the SoCon as a whole going a combined 2-4 on the day, 1-3 in out of conference games. For those fans creeping toward the ledge, remember Furman was 1-3 outside the SoCon last season and was able to find some magic and reach the playoffs with a share of the Southern Conference title. I wouldn’t recommend putting yourself through that “back to the wall” kind of season, but it can be done. StandingsSeason Stats Read more

2014 SoCon Week 4 Preview: The Citadel at Charleston Southern

The Citadel Bulldogs have played, without a doubt, the most difficult schedule of any SoCon squad so far in 2014. Coach Houston’s team has played FCS top 5 Coastal Carolina and FBS #1 Florida State. They will try to get into the win column on Saturday when they make the short trip to face cross town rival Charleston Southern. The Buccaneers got the win in the Bulldogs’ Johnson Hagood Stadium last year and will look to make it two in a row Saturday evening in front of the home fans. Read more
