Tusculum Blown Out in Final Four

Tusculum Blown Out in Final Four

Freshman QB Robert Abbott throws 4 picks as Tusculum tried to take advantage of West Georgia’s 4-4 defense.

Michael Schmidt was the lone highlight running back a kick 99 yards for a score in his final game as a Pioneer. The SAC put 4 teams into the playoffs and all the teams got a healthy boost in recruiting from the DII Playoff Payoff.

Recruiting is right around the corner.

Reigning SAC Champion Tusculum Shocked by Departure

Reigning SAC Champion Tusculm

Tusculum lost to Winston Salem State in the final game of the 97 season. Senior QB Thomas Reid decided to walk away from the program leaving a single redshirt freshman signal caller, “I know I still have a year of eligibility left, but since I`m not getting a lot of playing time I`ve decided to move on. It doesn`t look like it will payoff for me to stick around. See ya later.”

Coach Clememp caught up with the media in Greeneville, “Jason Clark is ready to start. We look forward to getting him some competition for playing time. It’s a great time to be a standout prep QB if you are looking to join the right program.”

Tusculum matriculated Thomas Anderson who led all of DII with 58 passing touchdowns last season before joining the Canadian Football League trying to make the Rough Ryders roster.

Welcome to the SAC 98

The South Atlantic Conference welcomes a new coach at West Virginia Wesleyan Indy_Indians for the 98th season in the Rockne World of Fantasy Fantasy football.

The SAC has 8 coaches under contract this season.  Last season the SAC was ranked as the most powerful conference according to the GUESS Reports by .02 points over the Northern Sun.

The SAC has some of the top coaches in Division II with great success. The preeminent coach in the league is dawgnuts. His Shepherd team contends annually for the SAC Title game from the West Division. He won the National Championship in Season 96 to add to his 14 conference championships.

Next in tenure and similar Air Raid offensive tendencies is flipdog0 at Mars Hill. Flip collects top talent well and is a recruiting junkie. His offense is tailored to the top talent that he drags onto campus, sometimes with under the table envelopes, throwback jerseys and other infractions have been alleged by the WhatifSports Commissioners Office in the past decade. Flip has one SAC Title belt that he failed to return to the league office.

Clememp has Tusculum back on track appearing in the title game last season, but has a tremendous rebuilding project in head of the coach for the 98th season. Clem has won 4 SAC Championships and is renowned for player development and flexible offensive schemes to showcase talents that he acquires on the recruiting trails.

MJRyan is a interesting case. He won a SAC Championship at Carson-Newman before taking over an Ivy League team, then returning to the Cradle of Champions in the South Atlantic Conference, or he got caught on a motorcycle with an intern. Well he relocated to West Virginia Tech where his 3-4 defense and amazing stable of running backs look to contend as a national power.

Abdfl joined the league the same year Mjryan returned and took over Carson-Newman after one year of simai recruiting on autopilot after the team was abandoned in mid-season. Abd has the team in a rebuild and has been recruiting classes to get Carson Newman back on track. He has 9 conference wins in the last 3 seasons.

Drdvh and Kings/40s are both WhatifSports compadres and joined the league last year respectively at Presbyterian and Newberry. They are setting up their dynasties and playbooks for the cutthroat competition for the SAC Title.
