From today's edition of the Macon Telegraph........

FVSU not wanting to overlook winless Lane
By MICHAEL A. LOUGH - mlough@macon.com

FORT VALLEY — A week ago, the scouting report on Kentucky State was that of a team with some talent that hadn’t figured out how to get it all to mesh.

And Fort Valley State struggled to pull out a 14-12 win on the road, needed a stop on a busted two-point conversion play to avoid overtime and the possible upset by Kentucky State.

“It was a combination,” FVSU head coach Donald Pittman said. “You have to give Kentucky State credit. They’re a good team, and we knew they were.”

A week later, the scouting report is similar while the team is different.

Lane hopes for the upset of the year in the SIAC when it hosts 25th-ranked FVSU on Saturday afternoon.

The scare in Frankfort, Ky., could be bad news for Lane, which will face a group of Wildcats looking to tighten things up with next week’s Fountain City Classic on tap.

“We got ahead 14-0, and we got a little bit complacent,” Pittman said. “Again, that could’ve been Kentucky State also.

“It’s good for those guys to have to battle back, to be in a dogfight at the end and answer the call.”

FVSU is 7-1 overall and 6-1 in SIAC action, a game behind unbeaten Albany State, which hosts Stillman (1-7, 1-6) on Saturday afternoon.

The Wildcats and Rams hope to take care of business, setting up a huge Fountain City Classic at Columbus’s A.J. McClung Memorial Stadium. It could be one of the first times in several years that both teams are ranked for the game and that the SIAC title would be decided or shared. 

And that’s one reason safety Dejuan Williams isn’t worried about how the Wildcats looked last week or what they need to work on for next week.

“It’s hard to look past anybody,” he said. “We need every win. No matter what their record, you gotta watch every team.”   nod

While Lane (0-8, 0-7) has struggled, it has the attention of Williams and the defense.

“My focus is Lane,” Williams said. “They run the triple-option. That’s why they’re my main concern.”

Lane was close to getting its first win last week. After scoring with 30 seconds left to take a 25-20 lead, Lane gave up a 65-yard touchdown pass on the final play to lose 26-25 to Stillman.

The Dragons average 113 yards rushing and 54.2 yards passing per game, while giving up 147.8 and 144.8.

They’re fourth in the SIAC in pass defense and sixth in total defense, rushing offense and rushing defense, but otherwise around the bottom elsewhere statistically.

Tahj Dent is seventh in the conference with 50.5 rushing yards per game.

“They’re going to run triple (option); they’re going to run midline (option),” FVSU defensive coordinator Haskel Buff said. “And they’ll mix in some misdirection, some counters, some sweeps, very much along the lines of the Wing-T.”

FVSU quarterback Eugene Smith (ankle) is expected to start after sitting out last week, save for a few plays. Tony Reid, a running back and Wildcat formation quarterback, got plenty of touches.

Having been taken to the limit a week ago by a team with a losing record — and after about a nine-hour bus ride to get there — FVSU may have been a little humbled and thus ready to get back to big wins.

“You never know,” Pittman said. “But more than likely, we’re gonna get out there and play Wildcat football from start to finish.”    nod clap

To look at the records for an extended period of time really gives a true picture of what has taken place.  In this case, it shows if a program is truly successful or one that has had recent success.

This is unfortunate. 

Hopefully the remaining funds needed will be secured so the construction of the cross walk will take place.

IMO, This is just stupid.  Armstrong is suppose to be a Pastor of a church.  It is almost certain that HIS church has business that needs his attention.  But then again, he is doing just that - seeking attention.   tongue2

As stated in the article, this lawsuit was a waste of time, energy, and effort.  There has been a lot of resources devoted to this drama between Reed and AL State's BOT.   no

I am in agreement with other posters.  This is definitely an interesting bit of history.  Thanks for posting.   nod
