Independently covering the OVC since 2011. To learn about us, click the button below.

Let me start with a non-sports link. It’s called the Facekini, and it’s taking China by storm. Warning: You can’t unsee this. (It will haunt you in your next nightmare. I promise)

Also the AP has posted “previews” of every OVC football team in the past week. That being said, they were about 5 sentences long, so I didn’t feel the need to add them to the web watch.

Anywho…On to the important stuff:


From the Schools (other than practice recaps) Racer Football Meet and Greet this Saturday. Austin Peay finishes 2-1 on Canadian exhibition tour


OVC Football:

Leaf Chronicle: Austin Peay kicker looking for consistency as season nears.

Gasden Times: JSU begins 3rd week of camp.

Lost Letterman: The solution to Duke’s football woes? Murray State head coach Chris Hatcher.

Jackson Sun: Skyhawks think they’re underrated heading into 2012 season.

Herald-Citizen: Defense shines in TTU’s second scrimmage

Gadsen Times: Strength lies within Jacksonville State’s line


OVC Basketball:

SE Missourian: Former Redhawks center Leon Powell signs with (only?) professional team in Luxembourg. (It’s a small country. There can’t be that many)

Hardwood Houdini: Former Eagles standout Kenneth Faried working out with NBA Legend Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon Charleston Classic (which includes Murray State) named among best early season tournaments.

Hoops World: Who to watch list from Adidas Nation includes TSU’s Robert Covington, but not Murray State’s Isaiah Canaan, because he “didn’t perform as well.”

Roto World: Warriors interested in former UTM F Lester Hudson


Other links (that have nothing to do with the Facekini):

Daily Eastern: Eastern Illinois to launch fan app with links to live audio and stat streams during games. (I really, REALLY like this idea)

STLToday: Cougars D-I status could bring more money to Edwardsville, a.k.a. “Metro East?” (Metro East St. Louis, I presume)

Lane Report: Morehead State University starts 125th year by breaking record

Register-Guard: Assuming Oregon can sell out against Arkansas State (which isn’t looking so good) the Ducks home-sellout streak with is more than 10 years old is in jeopardy when they host Tennessee Tech.
