« on: October 10, 2021, 06:15:32 PM »
The game winners of week 7 were:  Albany ST, Benedict, Clark Atlanta, Fort Valley ST, KY State, Morehouse, and Savannah ST. 


Week 7 was NOT pretty and was a repeat of previous weeks. None of the 20 participating posters were 100% with their weekly game predictions. 




The majority of the players, 15, were 43% for week 7.  Three posters were 57% for the week.  There was one poster who scored 71% for the week.  Whereas on the opposite end of the spectrum, there was a poster who was at 29% for the week.

Nineteen of the 20 participating posters, had selected both Miles and Tuskegee as game winners.  Only one poster had picked CAU to defeat Allen and only one poster selected KY State to defeat the Lane Dragons.

The posted results are based on 51 games.  One game separates those who are tied for 1st place from those that are in the 2nd place position.

NLRB memo: College football players are employees

By JIMMY GOLEN


College athletes who earn millions for their schools are employees, the National Labor Relations Board’s top lawyer said in guidance released Wednesday that would allow players at private universities to unionize and otherwise negotiate over their working conditions.

NLRB General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo also threatened action against schools, conferences and the NCAA if they continue to use the term “student-athlete,” saying that it was created to disguise the employment relationship with college athletes and discourage them from pursuing their rights.

“The freedom to engage in far-reaching and lucrative business enterprises makes players at academic institutions much more similar to professional athletes who are employed by a team to play a sport,” Abruzzo wrote.

Abruzzo’s memo does not immediately alter the dynamic between the schools and their athletes, who can receive scholarships and limited cost of attendance funding in exchange for playing sports. Instead, it is legal advice for the NLRB should a case arise.

Virus claims Black morticians, leaving holes in communities

By ADAM GELLER



MULLINS, S.C. (AP) — When the last mourners departed and funeral director Shawn Troy was left among the headstones, he wept alone.

For five decades, the closing words at countless funerals in this town of 4,400 had been delivered by his father, William Penn Troy Sr. Now the elder Troy was gone, one of many Black morticians claimed by a pandemic that has taken an outsized toll on African Americans, after months of burying its victims.

And as Shawn Troy stepped forward to speak in place of a man well known beyond his trade -- for his work in county politics and advocacy of its Black citizens -- the emptiness felt overwhelming. Not just his family, but his community, had lost an anchor.

“I walked over to his grave and I could hear him talking to me,” Shawn Troy said, his own voice breaking as he recalled kneeling beside the plot last September, on a low rise near two palmetto trees. “And he said, ‘You got it. You can do it. This is what you were built for.’ He passed the baton on to me, so I’ve got to get running.”

Fort Valley State prepares for historic opener against Tuskegee in Red Tails Classic

BY CALEB SLINKARD
SEPTEMBER 03, 2021 02:57 PM


FORT VALLEY
Fort Valley State University football coach Maurice Flowers had a challenging start to his Wildcat career. The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) canceled the 2020 season due to COVID-19, and the more than 20-year veteran had to wait until this spring to lead his team on the field.

The Wildcats were successful in their abbreviated season, defeating Shorter University in Rome 36-18 and running away from Erskine, 45-21.

This season, however, will be different. FVSU is planning to play a full complement of games, beginning on a major stage: The Wildcats will travel to Alabama to take on Tuskegee University in the inaugural Red Tails Classic. The event was created by ESPN to showcase Historically Black Colleges and Universities and honor the Tuskegee Airmen.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Sunday in Montgomery’s Cramton Bowl, and will be broadcast on ESPNU, part of an opening week schedule that began with a UAB and Jacksonville State game Wednesday. The Blazers won 31-0.

“I think it’s great to start the season off with a quality opponent,” Flowers told the Telegraph Friday. “They’re a championship program with a championship head coach in Willie Slater. They’re going to be well-coached, athletic and strong.”

Fort Valley last played Tuskegee in 2018, a 17-6 home loss.

“The travel is going to be something we’re familiar with as a team, because we played both games on the road in the spring,” Flowers said. “The big game environment; with the history and tradition of playing winning football at Fort Valley State, you expect to play in big games.

“It’s great the Tuskegee Airmen are being recognized for all of their contributions as fighter pilots. It’s a tremendous honor to play in the game.”

Flowers said that even though the Wildcats weren’t able to play a full 2020 season, he and his coaching staff have spent the past year and a half building relationships with players, implementing systems on offense, defense and special teams and emphasizing the importance of academics, which has resulted in more than 50 players maintaining a higher than 3.0 GPA.

The Wildcats will play on their recently resurfaced field in their season opener on Sept. 18 against Lane College. That game will be broadcast on ESPN+. Additional games that will be broadcast on ESPN+ include the Wildcats’ Oct. 16 matchup against Morehouse, their Oct. 30 showdown with Savannah State, and the Nov. 6 Fountain City Classic versus Albany State.
