Eagles not overlooking St. Augustine’s in season-opener
http://www.heraldsun.com/sports/eagles-not-overlooking-st-augustine-s-in-season-opener/article_6f253dd2-5376-11e5-bfd6-63d7f54ab550.html

 Brooke Pryor

DURHAM — On paper, N.C. Central’s season-opening game against Division-II opponent St. Augustine’s (6 p.m., NCCUEaglePride.com) should be a cakewalk.

 The Falcons, who went 3-7 last season, are seeking their first win against a Division I opponent, and NCCU, a defending MEAC co-champion, returns 51 lettermen to the Falcons’ 30. NCCU also holds a 27-2-1 record in the series.

 But in 2013, the Falcons marched into O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium and nearly stole one from the Eagles, leading until late in the game when then-quarterback Jordan Reid threw a touchdown pass with seconds left to force overtime. NCCU eventually won that contest 23-20 in double overtime.

 “It was one of those games that some of the young men feel like they took for granted,” coach Jerry Mack said. “They didn't go out there and execute the game plan well. They allowed the other team to hang around throughout the second and third quarters and when you give anybody that kind of momentum, you're going to be in a dogfight at the end.”

 Reid, now an offensive assistant for the Eagles remembers the game well. Junior quarterback Malcolm Bell and senior defensive back C.J. Moore were on the sideline for that game and watched on as Reid added another touchdown to force the second overtime and Oleg Parent made a 19-yard field goal to win.

 “From what I remember from that game, it was a lot of taking people for granted,” Moore said, echoing his coach. “You come in and you take a team like that for granted, and they're going to come in ready. They're still well coached and any time you play a team that's well coached and prepares hard, they're going to have a chance to beat you.

 “I just remember they ran the ball well. Their defense was attacking our offense and gave our offense a lot of problems. It was a tough day. The game was longer than we expected.”

 The game, which lasted 3 hours 40 minutes, is still talked about and used as an example throughout the program. With a lack of film on St. Augustine’s, NCCU must rely on tape from the last couple of years, including the infamous 2013 meeting. Many of the players on the team now, including starting running back Idreis Augustus were on the field in the 2013 game. Augustus led the team with 66 yards on 14 carries in that game, including a long rush of 23 yards.

 On the other side of the ball, NCCU had trouble stopping the Falcons’ ground game and allowed Roderick Davenport to run for 94 yards on 15 carries, including an explosive run of 49 yards.

 Davenport, an All-CIAA selection after leading the conference in rushing last season, will anchor St. Augustine’s ground game once again Saturday afternoon.

 But this time around, NCCU is prepared for the attack.

 “It's one of those things because you have to respect anyone that lines up in front of you, and I don't think we did that a few years ago,” Moore said. “Now we're really respecting them like we should. They've got some good players over there. They've got a good running back and can run the ball really well. They're a well coached team and we’ll see a lot of play action.”

 Since that game, a lot has changed around NCCU’s program — new coach, new quarterback, new defensive scheme. But one thing remains a constant after an almost calamitous start to the 2013 season: no team, no matter the size, record or division, should be overlooked.

 “They're still the same team and they're still the same school,” Reid said. “Being that we're an FCS I-AA team, they're going to come in here hungry with that extra motivation being that they're a Division II team. We've got that target on our back.”

Southern 39-28  and it was not that close.

Hillside is in for a major butt whipping on Friday night when they come to Greensboro to play Dudley High.

Lighten up, what do you think your rivals should say, regardless of who ya'll play. I am sure you will beat them again this year.
Besides, picking a fellow CIAA member over an rival makes perfect sense to me.

NCCU didn't play a rival today.  Just a fellow HBCU, not a rival.

Nation, I do believe we got ourselves a coach and a football team.  We did what was to be expected and much, much more.  How we fare against Duke might give us a gage as to how far we have come as a DI football program.  I think we will do far better than we did when we last played them.  So far, Mack has proven a better coach than our last two coaches; I just wonder how long we will be able to keep him in Durham.

I will text you Friday night after the drubbing.   There are some NCCU fans coming to Greensboro on Friday because they are Hillside grads.  I told them on Saturday what to expect.

I do believe we will do better against Duke than in any of our previous games with them (I am not saying we will win).  FIU is going to be tougher than some of us expected.  They have a new coaching staff and they beat UCF last Thursday night.

Lets not start the talk about long will Jerry Mack stay in Durham.  Let's just go along for the ride that he will take us on.

Saw Duke and Florida International on the tube.  Duke is sharp at QB with speed at receivers.  Duke is a bowl eligible team, national recruiter, and very well coached. FIU beat Univ of Central Florida which is a major institution too.  You have to play this type to see where you are in your development and expectations.  The main thing is to come out of these game healthy because, our guys don't fear, but respect these top division teams.  They know many of Duke  current squad through interactions with the same medical staff and facilities at Duke Sport Medicine.  I will be there.  Some asked did we run the score up on St Aug?. No. Coached used his bench and  everybody participated except the red shirts not dressing. St Aug could not stop our team and they appeared tired from NCCU platooning fresh bodies throughout the game. We just wore them out.  Don't let the score fool you.  They got talent and will win some games. I saw some bright spots and fight to the end.  This could be good because teams will think they can't play. Watch out! St Aug controlled the ball most of the game.
