2010 Around the South columns

November 18, 2010 Dealing with devastation DePauw entered the playoffs on a losing note last season as well, but that wasn't 47-0 and it wasn't the Tigers' first loss of the season either. Robby Long's job is a little more difficult this week.

November 11, 2010 B-SC ready to compete The 2011 season will be the first in which Birmingham-Southern is eligible for the SCAC title and the NCAA playoffs. And the Panthers seem to be aiming at a 2011 run.

November 5, 2010 Independents have a lot on the line Although independents Huntingdon and LaGrange have no playoff hopes this season, both have a lot to play for when they meet this Saturday.

October 27, 2010 DePauw back in the dance Last year was a great moment in the history of DePauw football, but it wasn’t a moment that coach Robby Long wanted to repeat. This year the Tigers controlled their own destiny.

October 21, 2010 ASC all about offense If you’ve been following the America Southwest Conference scoreboard this season you may have noticed a pattern. A pattern in terms of the number of points being scored. More in Around the South.

October 13, 2010 TLU quick to turn around After going 0-10 last season, having disciplinary issues and changing coaches, one would think it would take time for Texas Lutheran to get on its feet. But at 3-2, they're off and running.

October 6, 2010 Getting his shot under center When you're one year behind a D3football.com regional player of the year, quarterback, you're not going to get much work. Michael Engle had a long time to wait but is making the most of his chance.

September 29, 2010 Millsaps rallies from slow start An 0-2 start had first-year coach Aaron Pelch worried, but the Majors have turned it around since.

September 22, 2010 Making up for lost time The expectations were high, and so was their ranking. Except that for Hardin-Simmons, the calendar read 2009. This year they're making up for lost time.

September 15, 2010 Will McMurry's start translate? The teams McMurry has beaten are suspect when compared to the powers of the ASC. But with Hal Mumme in his second year at the reins, this week's game with UMHB should reveal the program's status.

September 8, 2010 The season of expectations The start of a new season is ripe with expectations as everyone starts out equal. Except expectations can be different for different programs.

September 1, 2010 10 games to watch for 2010 For the third season, I am writing this column which covers the America Southwest Conference and the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference as well as region independents Huntingdon and LaGrange.
