OVC Football

Thomas Cohern of the Herald-Citizen previews the new 1-2 rushing attack the Golden Eagles will hope to unleash on the league this year.

Undrafted former TTU WR Tim Benford is impressing some coaches at Dallas Cowboys’ camp. Of course, that also means the new WR’s must try and fill his void.

EKU’s RB Jeremiah Williams continues to prepare for the season after returning from a knee injury.

JSU has yet to have a practice in full pads. Really? They should be in the pads before Fan Day on August 18.

Of course, APSU goes full pads for the first time today. That’s less surprising…

TSU on the other hand…they’ve put on the pads.

Luke Thompson highlights Austin Peay sophomore WR Daryl Clack.

The Skyhawks are looking to the veterans to improve on a disappointing year.


OVC Basketball

Belmont will face college basketball behemoth Kansas this upcoming season.  No word on the date of the game. Do you give Belmont the change to pull off the Big 6 upset?

Cincinnati will open their season on November 5th against UT Martin. Do you give UT Martin a chance to score more than 30 points?

Former Morehead St. standout Kenneth Faried could see many more minutes at Power Forward next season.

SIU Edwardsville’s incoming transfer Grant Fiorentinos is currently playing with Great Britain’s Under 20 team. 5 points, almost 3 rebounds per game this summer.

Austin Peay will play Depaul (at Depaul), Western Carolina, and either Gardner Webb or Howard in this year’s Cancun Classic. Already stacking up to be an easier non-conference schedule than last year.

Former NBA and EKU Star, Arnie Risen, died earlier this week. He was 87 years old.
