Let’s play a game of 10 questions this week.
1. Why is Alabama State head coach Reggie Barlow being asked to resign only months after signing a contract extension?
2. Can someone ask the grounds crew at Rice-Totten Stadium why the sprinklers activated during Mississippi Valley State’s game versus Grambling last night?
3. Will ESPN cover Grambling’s 2014 turnaround with same vigor as last season’s turmoil?
4. Will Norfolk State ever find an offense to go with their great defense?
5. Why do folks like John Wooten, who is leading the Florida A&M football coach search committee, keep wanting football coaches to double as father figures?
6. Speaking of FAMU, I see that former Notre Dame coach Ty Willingham is part of the search committee. Why isn’t he being considered for the job?
7. Should Winston-Salem State move back up to the FCS?
8. How can the NCAA help schools like Arkansas Pine-Bluff not be in a position where 100 ineligible athletes are competing over a five-year period?
9. Anybody care that Jackson State lost to Tougaloo in basketball?
10. Is the Xavier women’s basketball team the hottest squad in the country?
Alcorn State versus Alabama A&M
The Bulldogs still control their destiny in the SWAC East. Look at God…who is disguised as Alcorn this week.
Alcorn State 37, Alabama A&M 20
Texas Southern versus Southern
The Jaguars have to win to keep up with a Grambling bunch that doesn’t even acknowledge the loss column even exists.
Southern 28, Texas Southern 13
Morgan State versus North Carolina A&T
Both schools are still in a battle for first place in a crowded MEAC race.
North Carolina A&T 24, Morgan State 20
Tuskegee versus Miles
This will be a battle for a SIAC championship berth.
The Golden Tigers are unbeaten in conference play and should stay that way by the skin of their teeth.
