CCU Football Week 12 Opponent: #BeatLiberty Flames

Thoughts on last week’s game: This was another solid win over a sub-par team. Alex came out guns blazing and easily could have broken the CCU record for TDs in a game if he wanted to. The KSU fans were very nice and I was pleasantly surprised with the number that showed up. They will definitely be a force for #BeatLiberty to deal with in the Big South in the future. Preview: #BeatLiberty was picked to...

CCU Football Week 11 Opponent: Kennesaw St. Owls

Thoughts on last week’s game: Finally! We played to our capability and did not stoop to the level of our competition. A loss will do that to you as well. Hop had a solid game and the defense stepped up – granted it was against a sub-par team. Preview: Kennesaw State was picked to finish last in the pre-season poll. The Owls did not have any players make the 2015 Big South Football Preseason...

CCU Football Week 10 Opponent: Gardner Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs

Thoughts on last week’s game: This was a carbon copy of two years ago in Charleston. We came out, fell behind early, the defense was as useful as a screen door on a submarine the entire first half and the offense we all know showed up but not until the 4th quarter. Ryan Granger did miss two big FGs which was very uncharacteristic of him. IF (huge if) he made those, we most likely win the game on that...

CCU Football Week 9 Opponent: Charleston Southern Buccaneers

Thoughts on last week’s game: This seems to be a common thought recently. We won again; it was very very ugly and uninspiring. Hop got his record-breaking TD in his 21st straight game, Alex threw for 280+ yards, Ryan Granger hit a clutch FG at the buzzer, and the D made 2 nice stops late in the game and those were about the only highlights during the game. Cheney ran wild against us to the tune of 196...

CCU Football Week 8 Opponent: Monmouth Hawks

Thoughts on last week’s game: We escaped with an ugly win over a not good Presbyterian team in crummy weather. It was another game where we stooped to the level of our opposition. Eventually that will catch up to us if things haven’t changed during the BYE week. I look for more teams to treat Hop the way the Blue Hose did with 7 and 8 men in the box. That’s fine with me though because with Alex...

CCU Football Week 6 Opponent: Presbyterian Blue Hose

Thoughts on last week’s game: I will not regale you with any great/terribly bad French novelist quotes, or gnats or text messages and babies eventhough a baby would be very apropos as my wife and I had to leave the game early as she is 8 ½ months pregnant and was not feeling good. But I digress… As TOBDB mentioned this week, this was similar to the Homecoming game against Liberty with Superstorm Sandy...

CCU Football Week 5 Opponent: Alabama A&M Bulldogs

Thoughts on last week’s game: When I thought back to the Bryant game, the first thought that came into my head was “the more things change, the more they stay the same”, a famous quote from the French critic/journalist/novelist Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr. Coastal Carolina football has come so far since 2003 when we tore the goalposts down when we “upset” Newberry. We’ve knocked off a defending...
