Our weekly collection of links from writers across the OVC, and college sports.
One coach is struggling to count to two, I again make fun of one of my favorite writers, and one newspaper’s headline writing staff is having their best week ever.
IS IT REALLY A TWO QUARTERBACK SYSTEM WHEN THE SECOND QB THROWS JUST ONE PASS? — UT Martin plans to keep their comical “two-quarterback” system, even though we all know there’s really only one.
SOMETIMES, SMALLER IS BETTER — Cool profile on EKU’s
5’7 5’9 running back, J.J. Jude.
ONE’S GOT A CHANCE TO WIN — Three OVC football players remain on the updated Walter Payton award watch list.
SUPERSTAR! – Former Morehead State forward Kenneth Faried will appear on a Disney XD show this month.

BACK IN THE LEAGUE — The Utah Jazz sign former UT Martin basketball star Lester Hudson.
DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH ALL THE SENIOR QUARTERBACKS THAT GRADUATED LAST YEAR? — Luke Thompson of the Leaf Chronicle is a great guy, and honestly a really good writer. But for the second week in a row, I simply look at one of his articles and say, “you think?” This is that article.

HEADLINE OF THE WEEK CANDIDATE — After EIU’s 42-7 win over EKU, the Journal Gazette and Times Courier proclaims “This is what I call a blowout.” Even better is the first line. “This is one of those reporter-knows-more-than-the-coach-who-doesn’t-know-what-he’s-talking-about columns.” We have a lot of those here at OVC Ball…
ANOTHER HEADLINE OF THE WEEK CANDIDATE — Once again, we go to the JG-TC, about the same game. “After getting the wind, Panthers blow away Colonels.”
WORDPLAY IS FUN — “Tech comes back to chop down Sycamores”
