Fighting fire: The cost of




protecting your iieighhrs


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Volunteering for any organization isn't
always easy, but for the men and women
who have stepped up to'the plate to pro-
vide fire protection in Calhoun County,
it's downright difficult.
Two weeks ago, The County Record
shared some of the issues local volunteer
fire departments are facing, particularly
the lack of funding. Coupled with that is
the increasingly harder job of finding
more folks willing to give of their time,
energy, and, yes,: even money to protect
their neighbors.
"The largest challenge that I face at
Magnolia is recruiting new volunteers
and retaining them once I do get them,"
says Kevin Parrish, who serves as chief of
the youngest VFD in,, the county. "At
Magnolia, the requirement to become a
member is mostly to be willing, to show
up at first, but after a short period of time
we like to get our volunteers to take the.

It's been over two

County has been directly
impacted by a hurricane.
And that has Emergency
Management Director
Sonny O'Bryan a little wor-

claimed four lives in our
community, but actual hurri-

mary concern is we're com-
placent," O'Bryan remarks.
"We're saying it's always
going to happen somewhere
else. That causes people to
not do their own person pre-
paredness."
From his desk in the
courthouse basement, com-
puter models have O'Bryan
a bit worried. "We've got
about five disturbances in

O'Bryan reminds resi-
dents that small communi-
ties will never garner the
immediate response of met-
ropolitan areas after a disas-
ter even more reason to
prepare your family for
potential disaster.
"I would prefer people
not forget that [the
Emergency Management
Office] exists, but prepare
themselves as if we did not
exist," he stresses. "Prepare
for power outages with can-
dles, gather a sufficient


stock of canned goods to eat
cold, have an alternate
source of stored water on
hand, and do the things you
need to do to survive. It
takes FEMA 72 hours to get
assistance to a big populated
area; that would not be the
case for Calhoun County.
It's called a trickle down
effect and we may be weeks

side, we've got a lot of expe-

After close

primary,

candidates

gear up for

November 4
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The primary election ended
last Tuesday night with some of
the closest races in the history
of Calhoun County politics.
When The County Record
went to press at 9:30 p.m., the
District 1 and 5 County
Commission battles were too
close to call. An hour later, the
results were in: District 1
incumbent Danny Ray Wise
took the Democratic win with
353 votes, just seven more
than opponent Jerry Guilford
and 18 votes ahead of Shelby
Hires. Wise will face
Republican Cecil. R. Cochran
Nov. 4.
Harold Pickron came out on
top in District 5 with 230
votes, 10 mord than his closest
opponent, Thomas Flowers.
He will meet Republican
Tammy Rushing on the ballot
in the general election.
The Tax Collector's race
was another close one with
Becky Trickey Smith unseat-
ing Doris Burkett by 32 votes.
Smith will' goS up against
Republican Ken Sheppard in
November.
The county commission
races were inconclusive at
press time due to two dozen
outstanding provisional ballots
- meaning voters who cast
those ballots did not bring
proper identification to the
polls and they had to be veri-
fied by the canvassing board
before being counted. "We had
three close races. The provi-
sional ballots could have made
a difference," says Supervisor
of Elections Margie Laramore.
"It's very important for people .
to bring their identification so
we have results on election
night. All but one of the 24 pro-
visional ballots were valid. The
one that wasn't, the voter did
not .sign the envelope so we
had no signature to compare."
Laramore says there were
issues with the result screen in
front of the courthouse on elec-
tion night and they are being
addressed so candidates and
voters will be able to get results
quickly. "We realize there were
problems with that, ,but they
will be corrected by the gener-
al election," she stresses.
The deadline to register to
vote in time for the general
election is Oct. 6. Early voting
is Oct.. 20-Nov. 1, Monday-
Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Firefighter issues cont'd


fire services, whether it be
working on the new fire station
his department recently com-
pleted or raising funds to help
pay for it.
- Unlike Parrish, most volun-
teers don't come with much or
any training and it costs money
to gain the skills needed to fight
fires.
According to Doug Harrell,
West Side VFD Chief, it takes
volunteers about a year to finish
the initial Firefighter I class -
and that's with five hours of
training per week. On top of
that; they must pass the state
exam to become certified. "If
you are not certified, you can-
not be in the "hot zone", which
means roughly within 30-50
feet of a burning house,"
Harrell explains. "If you're not,
certified and you get injured.
you will not receive workman's
compensation, and the depart-
ment and the county can get in
serious trouble, and the chief


can potentially even be arrested
and charged. Our department,
like most, does not have enough
certified people, and I live with
this every time. the pager goes
off."
The cost of getting certified
often falls to the volunteer. "For
the most part, the firefighters
pay for their own training," says
Harrell. "While the county has
partially paid for one
Firefighter I class in the past,
there's no promise they will
again, and there's no system for
it. The last class of people had
to pay for their own, at nearly
$300 per person, unless their
department could afford to pay
for it, which given the current
funding situation, isn't too like-
ly. We have about 150 volun-
teers in the county, and maybe
35 currently in the eight county
departments have completed
Firefighter I certification."
Harrell points out that the
lack of better fire services is


Charles Jenkins alternate

delegate for Angus Assoc.

Charles R. Jenkins of Altha 34,000 active members and is
has been elected as an alternate the largest beef breed organiza-
delegate to the 125th Annual tion in the world.
American :Angus Association@
Convention of Delegates,
November 17 in Louisville,
Kentucky, reports Bryce
Schumann, chief executive offi-
cer of the American Angus
Association.
Jenkins, a member of the
American Angus Association
with headquarters in Saint
Joseph, Missouri, is one of 372
Angus breeders who have been
elected by fellow members to
serve as an alternate state rep-
resentative to the annual meet- 07 HYUNDAI SONATA
ing. Representing 45 states, Auto, Air, Powe
the District of Columbia and' Windows, 33k
Canada, the state delegates will Miles
participate in the business
meeting and elect new officers
and five directors to the
American Angus Association
board.SPR TD
The annual event is held in 07 FORD SPORT TRAC
conjunction with the annual 13KMILES
banquet and the Super Point
Roll of Victory Angus show,
November 15-18 during the
North American International
Livestock Exposition.
The American Angus
Association has more than fl7 F.).IIPFP-RDIITYV1/WAI,


costing citizens through higher
homeowner's insurance rates.
"I just bought a house and when
I shopped for insurance I fund
that if I was a mile away in the
City of Blountstown, where the
fire department is better fund-
ed, better equipped, and better
trained, my insurance would
have been about a third less
than it is in my own fire district,
where we have a poorer ISO
fire protection rating. Having
better funded fire departments
could actually save many, if not
most, of the homeowners in the
county money, not to mention
increase the professionalism
and the abilities of the people
responding when someone or
their property is in trouble."
As a new budget year is on
the horizon, local firefighters
are hoping county commission-
ers will take a hard look at fire
protection and consider raising
their current allotment.
Although it has been bumped
from $3000 to $4000 per
department, firefighters say,
that figure is still way below
what is needed to properly
operate.
"The 'current commission
did not create this situation,"
says Harrell, "It's not their
fault. But they have an oppor-
tunity to correct it."

BRISTOL -The Florida
Highway Patrol conducted a
"Comprehensive Roadside
Sobriety Checkpoint" (DUI
Checkpoint) on State Road 20
just east of the
Bristol/Blountstown Bridge
Bristol from Friday, August 29,
at 9:00 p.m., until Saturday,
August 30, at 1:00 a.m.
This was a joint operation
with FHP from Panama City
who were in Calhoun County
just west of the
Bristol/Blounritstown Bridge.
Liberty and Calhoun counties
are sending the message that
impaired driving will not be tol-
erated, FHP Troop
Commander Major Timothy
Ashley. .
'The operation netted one
drug arrest two DUI arrests and
two persons arrested on out-.
standing warrants." said Lt.
Mike Burroughs, District
Commander for Troop H FHP
"We encourage parents to know
who their teenager's friends are
and where they are going"
Burroughs said.
The DUI Checkpoint
processed 391 vehicles and
yielded the following enforce-
ment activity:
4- Physical Arrests
2- DUI Arrests
1-Drug Arrest
2- Driving While License
Suspended/Revoked Citations
13-Other Citations
8-Written Warnings
9 Faulty Equipment
Notices
The Florida Highway Patrol
is encouraging community
members to join the law
enforcement community in
helping to keep our local high-
ways safe everyday. "In an era
where our teenage driver fatali-
ties are at an alarming level, it
has never been more important
for business owners, clergy,
community leaders and mem-
bers to join together to educate
our children and families about
the perils many motorists
encounter as a result of
impaired drivers," said FHP
Troop H Commander Major
Timothy Ashley.
There are preventive alter-
natives to impaired driving, the
FHP warns. The Designated
Driver program is an effective
method. "Plan ahead if you're
going to celebrate, but keep in
mind that a designated driver is
not the driver who has had the
least amount to drink,"
Burroughs said. "Many busi-
ness owners could help us by
placing safety messages on your
marquis and clergy could assist
us by the inclusion of safety

messages to teenagers and
adults in their sermons,"
Burroughs said.
Most importantly, the FHP
encourages getting back to the
basics. Begin at home by dis-
cussing driving safety with your


teenagers and family to remind
them of the perils today's driv-
ers face on our local streets and
highways.
The FHP encourages every-
one to Celebrate Safely so you
can "ARRIVE ALIVE."

4-H THANKS
VOLUNTEERS AND
SPONSORS OF OUR
SUMMER DAY CAMPS
By Whitney Cherry,
4-H Agent
Calhoun County 4-H has
been very busy this summer
with day camps.
A two day Arts and Crafts
camp was held in July during
which 20 youth decorated
aprons, made paper, glue, mod-
eling clay, and enjoyed the tal-
ent of Mr. Willard Smith at the
Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement's blacksmith's shop.
In addition to Arts and
Crafts, two days were spent in
August at a Wildlife camp.
During this period another 20
youth were both educated and
entertained by volunteers from
the Calhoun. County
Emergency Management
Service, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), the
Division of Forestry, the local
National Wild Turkey
Federation chapter, the Betsy
Knight Wildlife Sanctuary, local
butterfly expert and naturalist
Bill Boothe, and artist Betty
Wilson with her Swamp
Creations.-
The youth learned first aid
and hiking safety, met birds,
butterflies, and alligators, and
were wowed by the skills" of
Jake, our local FWC K-9 offi-
cer. They were also schooled in
turkeys, bats, and fire safety,
and enjoyed creating a Swamp
Creation for their own "swamp
creature."
c A huge thanks goes out to all
of the volunteers who made
these camps unforgettable for
our youth, and to the Pioneer
Settlement for allowing 4-H to
use their facilities which were
ideal and much enjoyed by the
campers!
The final camp of the sum-
mer was a .field trip for ten
youngsters to St. Joe Peninsula
State Park where participants
and adult volunteers were guid-
ed by park rangers through tur-
tle nesting areas, grass beds,
and park trails. Campers
caught and learned about a
variety of local creatures, and
enjoyed swimming and sand
castle building.
Overall, the 4-H summer
programs are considered to'
have been a tremendous suc-
cess. The Calhoun County
Extension Office expresses
their gratitude to our communi-
ty for all of its support and look
forward to another great camp-
ing season next summer!

Tigers shutout LCHS 20-0 in Classic


The Blountstown Tigers
opened the 2008 season
Friday night in Bristol with a
20-0 shutout victory over
rival Liberty County High
School. Both teams commit-
ted far too many turnovers
and penalties and both will
have to make tremendous
improvements to make the
playoffs at season's end.
"We've got to cut down on
our penalties," coach Greg
Jordan said Monday. "We
had far too many big plays
erased by penalties.
Defensively, we played about
as well as we could expect.
We missed some assignments
but we tackled well and
forced some turnovers. Our
offensive line also played
well. We're pleased with the
win, but we've got to get bet-
ter," Jordan noted.
LCHS was without the
services of five players and
BHS was without two follow-
ing an unfortunate incident
last Tuesday at the BHS
auditorium. Whether the
outcome would have been
different had all players for
both teams been available
will never be known.
Malcolm Ivory opened the
scoring for the Tigers with a
33 yard run in the first quar-


ter following an impressive
drive. Ivory led the Tigers
with 67 yards on 13 carries
and caught two passes for 33
yards. Quarterback Heath
Bailey rushed for 96 yards on
12 carries and completed 2 of
6 passes for 33 yards.
Alexander Garrett rushed for
46 yards on 3 carries and
scored the Tigers second
touchdown in the third quar-
ter on a 33 yard scamper.
The Tiger offense totalled
284 yards but suffered 120
yards of penalties against the
offense and 150 yards in total


penalties. Most were for
blocking in the back down-
field, some were for jumping
offside, some were unsports-
manlike, and some were
against the sideline (coach-
es). The offensive line led by
seniors Jeremy Watson,
Shelby Godwin, Shane Bailey
and Chase Johnson played
well according to Coach
Jordan. Blake Shelton,
Jason 'Money and Michael
Gibson also did a good job
blocking. The Tigers came
up with three fumble recover-
ies and linebackers Jeremy
Watson and Darrin Huff each
had an interception.
Watson's interception came
in the fourth quarter and he
returned it 76 yards for the
Tigers' final touchdown.
Kicker Jared King missed.
two PAT's, but Heath Bailey
scored two points on a keep-
er following the Tigers' sec-
ond sc6re.
Defensively, the Tigers
held the Bulldogs to 81 total
yards on 45 offensive plays.
Watson led the Tigers with 12
tackles, one interception, and
two caused fumbles. Darrin
Huff had 8 tackles and one
interception for the Tiger
defense. Shane Bailey also
had 8 tackles followed by
Rafael Lockhart and Frankie
Murrell with 6 each.

Central Florida commitment
Bradley Butler to as little as
possible. They have a big

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN t


The Tigers kicked off the
2008 football season in good
fashion with a 20-0 win at
Liberty County, this past week.
The DEFENSE played
lights out all night, holding
Liberty to 81 total yards on 45
plays. The most important
thing was the shutout, not
allowing our opponent in the
endzone. Leading the way on
defense was senior linebacker
Jeremy Watson with 12 tackles
and an interception return for a
TD! Darrin Huff and Shane
Bailey each had 8 tackles. Hats
off to all the defenders that took
the field for the Tigers in the
shutout.
Offensively, the Tigers had
289 net yards on 42 plays. We
lost well over 100 yards of
offense on penalties. We were
our own worst enemy offensive-
ly. We were trying to beat'our-
selves and our opponent to gain
yards. Heath Bailey had his
first start at QB and did a good
.job managing the offense and
:calling plays. Heath had 96
yards on 12 carries. Malcolm
Ivory had 67 yards on 13 car-


ries and a TD. Rafael Lockhart
had 22 yards on 4 carries and
Alexander Garrett had 46 yards
on 3 carries and a TD. The
offensive line played well most
of the night with seniors Jeremy
Watson, Shane Bailey and
Shelby Godwin leading the way.
Jason Money, Michael Gibson
and Blake Shelton also played
well. Chase Johnson.also had a
good game at TE and DE for
the Tigers.

The road does not get any
easier for the Tigers as we head
to Marianna to take on the class
2A Bulldogs. We must stop
UCF commit Bradley Battles
at running back to have a
chance this week. The Bulldogs
have a big and physical offen-
sive and defensive line that will
test our Tigers strength and
stamina. Marianna lost to class
3A East Gadsden this last week
so they will be hungry for a win
this week. I think our players
will be ready to go and it should
be a great high school game.
The kickoff is at 7:00, see ya
there!!! Go Tigers!!!!

Communities Coordinator at the
Liberty County Health Department.


Dear Calhoun

County Citizens:
It was my privilege to serve as
your superintendent of schools
from 2000-2004. During those 4
years I was able to compensate the
teachers that taught dual
enrollment classes with a small
bonus so they could afford to
complete the required 18 hours .--
above a master, and thus allowing .
us to offer our students college
credit courses other than college
English. We were able to add
social studies, science, math, and
foreign language credits to give
them a head start.
We were able to add girls
basketball, golf, and boys and girls
weightlifting to the Altha School .
program. We also added girls and
boys weightlifting to the
Blountstown High School program.
* During my tenure as
superintendent I received state
certification in the school superintendent
area, and also spent 2 additional years of
training to complete the necessary
requirements io the Chief Executive
Officer Leadership Development Program.
During my term/in office we had 4 years
of being called a honor roll school district
with FCAT scores that were among the
best in the state. Also our school grades
were all A's and B's with the exception of
one lone C at Blountstown High School.
There were so many outstanding
achievements by individuals and
programs during that time. We had a very
successful state recognized football
program at Blountstown High School.
Altha and Blountstown both had highly
successful weightlifting programs during
that time with several state winners,
including a state championship at
Blountstown High School. Altha had a
very successful volleyball program that
was among the state's best in their blass.
Altha also received recognition as the
best athletic program in the state in their
class during that period. Both Altha and
Blountstown had very successful
basketball programs during my tenure.
The Altha School'culinary arts program
was the best in the state and one of the
elite national programs. Altha and
Blountstown dominated the Chipola
College math competition with both
schools usually 1 and 2 in the area most
of that time. Adam Harpool of
Blountstown High School was awarded a
number one national award in technology
achievement. Both Altha and Blountstown
had successful softball programs. Those
are some of the many accomplishments
made during my superintendent years. I
am proud to say it was a wonderful 4
years of achievements. I made a
dedicated effort to write each student,
sponsor, coach, and teacher a
handwritten letter recognizing and
complimenting them for their
achievements.
I am very community minded with a'
real commitment to improve all of our
schools, but in their ow individual
communities. I feel that schools and
churches are the backbone of our
communities, and very precious

institutions that are strongly supported
by the citizens of those communities.
Also, I don't want to be known as the
person that put a stake through the
hearts of those communities, or the
villain that divided our county down the
middle. You were told 4 years ago that I
was going to consolidate Blountstown
and Altha. Many people believed that
rumor, but I never had that in my plans.
You were told I was going to raise your
taxes, and that wasn't my plan either. I
believe it is my duty to be a good
steward of the money I was entrusted
with and to use it wisely. It is a very
tough financial.era we are in and
everybody is feeling the crunch. I don't
have all the answers, but I pledge to
work sincerely and earnestly with the
school board members to find the best
solutions to these problems.
We must be a team and seek the best
plan* of action that will benefit all
students, staff, and community
personnel. We will have an awesome
responsibility to undertake. It will take
much careful planning, soul searching,
and a lot of prayer (both ours and yours),
and with God's help and guidance we will
try our best to do the right thing. This
office and all elected offices belong to
the people and, when elected, we are
public servants who must stay in touch
with the people, listen to their concerns,
and follow the will of those that elect us
to the best of our abilities. Our country is
built on the premise that our government
is of the people, for the people, and by
the people. We cannot operate without
you and your support, nor should we try
to. When we ask for your trust and
confidence, our objective should be to
prove you made the right choice.
My grandfather taught me to "let your
word be your bond" and that is
embedded in my mind permanently. I will
try to keep my campaign clean, honest,
and work hard to live up to the highest
degree of expectation and performance.
What you see is what you get with me. I
hope seeking this office is in God's plan
and, if not, I will accept the
consequences without question.
Sincerely,
Tommy McClellan

EVELYN HOBBS
Evelyn Hobbs, 78, of

Florida, died Friday, August 29,
2008, in the Sycamore

Defeating Fear
Isaiah 12:2
Evangelist and social worker
John Perkins tells the story of
one southern state that made
an effort to reform its penal sys-
tem many years ago by
installing its first gas chamber.
The day had come for it to
be used for. the first time. The
victim was brought into the
chamber and strapped into the
chair. Moments away from
eternity, he used his final
breaths in an unusual way. He
became hysterical and began to
scream, "Save me, Joe Louis!
Save me, Joe Louis!" Perkins
comments, "People are looking
for something to save them, to
make them whole, to give them
meaning and peace and happi-
ness. In whom or in what we
place our faith is of eternal
importance. Do we have faith
in God or do we fear?"
Circumstances looked terri-
ble.,for Israel. Politically and.
spiritually they had been cor-
rupted on the surface, they
appeared close to extinction.
Yet Isaiah had, a vision from
God that the future was bright.
He called the leadership of his
country* to repentance and



A thought to

member
Since the beginning
S of time this old world
of ours has been
e'i experiencing
j disasters and tragic
events. Many are
unbelievable! The
Tim Adams Black Death in the
Funeral iiecor .14th century took the
lives of. 75 million
people. In a period
of just six months of 1918, more than
26 million people died from influenza.
Yet, the most tragic, and most
touching of all disasters is that almost
10 million people died in Northern
China in 1877 from starvation.
Somehow, we can accept disease
and illness, but when we hear of
millions of people perishing just
because they had nothing to eat, it
does something to us.
Today there are nations in the world
where two out of every three of the
people go to sleep at night hungry, they
awaken hungry in the morning and it
lasts all day.
Looking at in this light, it is no wonder
millions of people have time to bow
their heads and give "Thanks" before
each meal they eat.

WARREN TALMADGE
WHITE
Mr. Warren Talmadge
White, 73, of Blountstown, FL,
passed away Friday, August 29,
2008 in Blountstown.
Warren was born on May
20, 1935, .in Blountstown and
had lived here for most of his
life. Warren was an airplane
pilot and worked in general avi-
ation. He served in the United
State Marine Corp. Warren


urged everyone to obey God,
and not fear. He placed his
faith in the coming of the
Messiah, who would redeem
and restore all that had been
lost due to sin and rebellion.
It's good to know that God is
reachable at all times. When
you pray, you'll never get a
busy signal or have to listen to
an answering machine tell you,
"You have reached heaven, but
God is away from the phone."
You'll never have to record your
emergency on voice mail. Pray
and God will answer you. Trust
God, and you will never be dis-
appointed that you depended
on Him. If we are weak and
heavy laden, hindered by a
load of care, remember Jesus is
our refuge. Have faith in Him,
and never fear.

Hurricanes storm Gators


ife is already good for University of Florida quarter-
back Tim Tebow, but the reigning Heisman Trophy
winner can further endear himself to the Gator
Nation Saturday night.
After recording a 56-J0 victory over a Hawaii team that
is essentially the defending Western Athletic Conference
champion in name only, the Orange and Blue face their
first test of the season when they renew a bitter in-state
rivalry with Miami. Despite their recent woes, the
Hurricanes still manage to draw the ire of the Florida
faithful.
With the lone exception of 1943, the programs met
every year from 1938 to 1987. They resumed their rivalry
in the 2000 Sugar Bowl, and Miami has continued its
dominance throughout the decade with four more wins to
bring its winning streak in the series to six.
Records: Miami 1-0 (0-0 ACC Coastal); Florida 1-0 (0-0
SEC East). Coaches: Miami's Randy Shannon (6-7);
Florida's Urban Meyer (71-16). Series: Miami leads 28-25.
Kickoff: 8 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ESPN.
Outlook: After getting four rushing touchdowns from
three different players and a Brandon James' 74-yard punt
return for a touchdown this past week, the Gators hope to
again showcase their playmakers. Miami's young quarter-
backs, Jacory Harris and Robert Marve, can't make mis-
takes against a Gator defense that forced six Hawaii
turnovers and scored on two interception returns.

THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
South Carolina at Vanderbilt
Records: South Carolina 1-0 (0-0 SEC East); Vanderbilt 1-0
(0-0 SEC East). Coaches: South Carolina's Steve Spurrier
(164-56-2); Vanderbilt's Bobby Johnson (81-86). Series:
South Carolina leads 14-3. Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. CT
Thursday. TV: ESPN.
Outlook: Vanderbilt quarterback Chris Nickson will
attempt to find holes in a South Carolina defense that cur-
rently ranks third nationally in pass efficiency defense
and fourth in passing defense. Can Chris Smelley ease
Spurrier's concerns about the quarterback position?
Southern Mississippi at Auburn
Records: Southern Mississippi 1-0 (Conference USA
East); Auburn 1-0 (0-0 SEC West). Coaches: Southern
Mississippi's Larry Fedora (1-0); Auburn's Tommy
Tuberville (106-53). Series: Auburn leads 16-5. Kickoff:
11:30 a.m. CT Saturday. TV: Raycom Sports.
Outlook: Like Auburn, Southern Mississippi showed
this past week that it can run the football. The Golden
Eagles ran for 427 yards and collected 633 yards of total
offense in its 51-21 victory over visiting Louisiana-
Lafayette.
Mississippi at Wake Forest
Records: Mississippi 1-0 (0-0 SEC West); Wake Forest 1-0
(0-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Mississippi's Houston Nutt
(112-70); Wake Forest's Jim Grobe (80-72-1). Series:
Wake Forest leads 1-0. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday.
TV: ABC.
Outlook: An effective Riley Skinner, who became
Wake Forest's all-time winningest quarterback with the
41-13 season-opening win at Baylor, has completed 69.8
percent of his career attempts. The Rebels will counter
with Texas-transfer Jevan Snead, who collected 183 yards
of total offense in a 41-24 win over Memphis.
Central Michigan at Georgia
Records: Central Michigan 1-0 (MAC); Georgia 1-0 (0-0
SEC East). Coaches: Central Michigan's Butch Jones (9-


6); Georgia's Mark Richt (73-19). Series: First meeting.
Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: Fox Sports South.
Outlook: Central Michigan will have to bring'the heat
like it did against Eastern Illinois if it hopes to stifle
Georgia's passing attack, which accounted for 323 yards
in this past week's 24-point win over Georgia Southern.
The Chippewas registered four sacks in their season-
opening 31-12 victory.
Norfolk State at Kentucky
Records: Norfolk State 1-0 (0-0 I-AAMEAC); Kentucky 1-
0 (0-0 SEC East): Coaches: Norfolk State's Pete Adrian
(53-54-1); Kentucky's Rich Brooks (117-144-4). Series:
First meeting. Kickoff: 6 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: None.
Outlook: As long as the defense plays like it did
against Louisville, Kentucky can use this game as an
opportunity to get the offense untracked. The Wildcats
only had 210 yards of total offense and the defense
accounted for two scores in Sunday's 27-2 win.
Tulane at Alabama
Records: Tulane 0-0 (0-0 Conference USA East); Alabama
1-0 (00 SEC West). Coaches: Tulane's Bob Toledo (82-
76); Alabama's Nick Saban (99-48-1). Series: Alabama
l.aJ 'rll 3 Kickoff: 6 pin. CT Saturday. TV: None.
Outlook: Ther rriTson Tide defense and the running
game, led by Mark Ingram and Glen Coffee, will again
look to shine. Alabama limited Clemson to zero rushing
yards, while Ingram and Coffee combined for 187 yards
on 34 carries in last week's 34-10 win.
La.-Monroe at Arkansas (at Little Rock)
Records: Louisiana-Monroe 0-1 (0-0 Sun Belt); Arkansas
1-0 (O-0 SEC West). Coaches:.Louisiana-Monroe's Charlie
Weatherbie (66-102); Arkansas' Bobby Petrino (42-9).
Series: Arkansas leads 7-0. Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT Saturday.
TV: Pay-per-view.
Outlook: The Razorbacks, who had a little bit of suc-
cess running the ball against Western Illinois, must test a
Louisiana-Monroe defense that gave up 321 rushing yards
in last week's 34-0 loss to Auburn. Arkansas' defense reg-
istered eight tackles for a loss last week, but the unit has
to be more opportunistic and force turnovers..
Southeastern Louisiana at Mississippi State
Records: Southeastern Louisiana 1-0 (0-0 I-AA Southland)
Mississippi State 0-1 (0-0 SEC West). Coaches:
Southeastern Louisiana's Mike Lucas (4-11); Mississippi
State's Sylvester Croom (17-31). Series: First meeting.
Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT Saturday. TV: None.
Outlook: Southeastern Louisiana's quarterback combi-
nation of Brian Babin and Mike Neville could present
problems for a Mississippi State secondary that ranks
11th nationally in pass efficiency defense. After throwing
three interceptions and losing two fumbles in last week's
22-14 loss to Louisiana Tech, the Bulldogs have to keep
turnovers to a minimum.
,Troy at LSU
Records: Troy 1-0 (1-0 Sun Belt); LSU 1-0 (0-0 SEC West).
Coaches: Troy's Larry Blakeney (137-68-1); LSU's Les
Miles (63-27). Series: LSU leads 1-0. Kickoff: 7 p.m. CT
Saturday. TV: Pay-per-view.
Outlook: The Tigers will have to contend with the
Trojans' DuJuan Harris; who rushed for 148 yards and
two scores and had one touchdown reception in last-
week's 31-17 win over Middle Tennessee State. Troy
needs to keep an LSU team that scored 31 first-half points
against Appalachian State in check during the first 30
minutes.

AAMA The Crimson Tide's 34-10
win over ninth-ranked
Clemson was the program's first over a
top-10 team in nearly three years. QB
John Parker Wilson threw for 180
yards on 22-of-30 passing and set two
school records: his 500 completions and
882 attempts broke the previous records
of 488 completions and 869-attempts,
both were set by Brodie Croyle.
I lKANSAS Quarterback Casey Dick
threw for a career-high
318 yards and two touchdowns on 24-of-
41 passing and ran for two touchdowns
in Saturday's 28-24 win over Western
Illinois. The 318-yard performance ranks
Dick seventh on the school's single-
game passing list.
URN Senior Robert Dunn scored
on a 66-yard return in this
past week's 34-0 win over Louisiana-
Monroe, breaking what was the nation's
longest active streak of consecutive
games without a punt return touchdown
at 144. Dunn, whose punt return was
the 10th-longest in school history, is the
first Auburn player to score on a punt
return since Robert Baker did it during
the 1996 season. -
IMRIDA The Gators extended the
conference's longest active
streak of consecutive season-opening
wins to 19 with Saturday's 56-10 victory
over visiting Hawaii. Reigning Heisman
Trophy winner Tim Tebow passed for a
touchdown, but he was unable to extend
his NCAA record of 14 straight games
with at least one rushing touchdown
and at least one passing touchdown.
IORGIA The Bulldogs exceeded the
500-yard barrier with 535
yards of total offense in last week's 45-
21 win over Georgia Southern. The last
time Georgia exceeded the 500-yard
mark came in the 2006 Sugar Bowl,
when it collected 501 yards in a 38-35
loss to West Virginia.
I UgyII fY The Wildcats extended
.. their nonconference
winning streak to 11 games with
Sunday's 27-2 win over Louisville. It is
Kentucky's longest winning steak
against non-SEC competition since it
won 17 games from 1954-60. Kentucky
had not held an-opponent without an
offensive score since a 25-0 win over
Vanderbilt Nov. 16, 1996.
Junior Charles Scott rushed for
160 yards and two touchdowns
in Satuday's 41-13 win over three-time
defending Division I-AA national
champion Appalachian State. Scott'is
the first LSU running back to rush for
more than 150 yards since Joseph
Addai, now a running back for the
Indianapolis Colts, had 156 yards
against Florida in 2005.
llSSISSIPPI The Rebels had their
highest scoring
output in nearly five years this past
week as they posted a 41-24 win over
Memphis in Houston Nutt's debut. It
was the most points Mississippi has
scored against Memphis since a 61-8 win
during the 1980 season.
MSSW STATE The first SEC team
since 1908 to visit
Ruston, La., for a football game suffered
a 22-14 upset loss to Louisiana Tech
Saturday. It was Louisiana Techs first
s win over a BCS-conference team since a
2003 triumph over Michigan State, and
it was the school's first win over an SEC
team since it upset Alabama in 1999.
I ORNAIHA Back-up quarterback
.. .Chris Smelley, who
started six games in 2007, led the team
on three fourth-quarter scoring drives in
last week's 34-0 win over N.C. State. The
win was head coach Steve Spurrier's
16th'straight opening-day triumph and
the Gamecocks' first win since a 21-15
victory over North.Carolina last October.
ESSEE Linebacker Gerald
Williams was recently
cleared by the SEC to play this season.
Williams, who originally signed with
Tennessee in 2005, attended a prep
school for a year and,spent two years at
City College of San Francisco before ,
returning to the Volunteers this season.
ImNDERBILT The Commodores got a
career-high 166 rushing
yards and two touchdowns from
quarterback Chris Nickson in their 34-
13 win over Miami of Ohio. Nickson's'
rushing performance was the best by a
Vanderbilt player since tailback Lew
.Thomas had 173 yards against Auburn
on Sept. 29, 2001.

v


Jackets flying high


' while it may be short-lived, there is an air of excite-
4,,' ment and optimism surrounding the Georgia
J. Tech program.
Things began to go downhill for the Yellow Jackets
late in the 2006 season as they fell to Wake Forest in the
conference championship game and blew an 18-point sec-
ond quarter lead in the Gator Bowl against West Virginia.
It became evident to school officials after a 7-5 regular
season in 2007 that a change was necessary.
After giving former head coach Chan Gailey his walk-
ing papers, Georgia Tech brought in former Georgia
Southern and Navy head coach Paul Johnson. Johnson is
a proven winner, but the Yellow Jacket faithful had doubts
about Johnson's triple-option offense and concerns about
Jacksonville State's quarterback, LSU-transfer Ryan
Perrilloux.
With a 41-14 win over the Gamecocks, Georgia Tech
cleared a major hurdle and now looks for its first major
road win of the Johnson era this.Saturday at defending
Atlantic Division champion Boston College.
Records: GeorgiaTech 1-0 (0-0 ACC Coastal); Boston
College 1-0 (0-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Georgia Tech's
Paul Johnson (108-39); Boston College's Jeff Jagodzinsldki
(12-3). Sefies: GesrgiaTech leads 4-2. Kickoff: Noon ET
Saturday. TV: Raycom Sports.
Outlook: The Eagles' Chris Crane, who averaged 6.7
yards on his-seven rushing attempts last week; could use
his legs to hurt a Georgia Tech defense that collected
four sacks against Jacksonville State. Unlike Jacksonville
State, Boston College has the athletes to play assignment
football against Johnson's trademark attack.
THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
Furman at Virginia Tech
Records: Furman 1(0-0 I-AA Southern); Virginia Tech 0-
1 (0-0 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Furman's Bobby Lamb (50-
24); Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer (209-109-4). Series:
Virginia Tech leads 4-0. Kickoff: 1:30 pmn. ET Saturday.
TV: ACCSelectcom.
Outlook: If Sean Glennon performs poorly against the
Paladins, Beamer can't hesitate to take the redshirt off
Tyrod Taylor. Even a good performance against a
Division I-AA team that posted a 62-14 win over Mars Hill
last week might muddle the Hokies' QB situation.
The Citadel at Clemson
Records: The Citadel 1-0 (0-0 I-AA Southern); Clemson 0-
1 (0-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: The Citadel's Kevin
Higgins (73-42-1); Clemson's Tommy Bowden (87-47).
Series: Clemson leads 29-5-1. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET
Saturday. TV: ESPN360.
Outlook: The Tigers have to put the 24-point loss to
Alabama behind them and focus on getting better for the
conference portion of the schedule. In addition to zero
rushing yards, Clemson yielded three sacks and was 1-
for-9 on third-down last week.
Mississippi at Wake Forest
Records: Mississippi 1-0 (0-0 SEC West); Wake Forest 1-0
(0-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Mississippi's Houston Nutt
(112-70); Wake Forest's Jim Grobe (80-72-1). Series:
Wake Forest leads 1-0. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday.
TV: ABC or ESPN2.
Outlook: The Rebels tallied 438 yards of total offense
in last week's 41-24 win over Memphis, which was their
best scoring output in nearly five years. Wake Forest
forced five turnovers against Baylor, but it also fumbled
four times, losing two.


Richmond at Virginia
Records: Richmond 1-0 (0-0 I-AA Colonial); Virginia 0-1
.0 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Richmond's Mike London (1-
Virginia's Al Groh (51-38). Series: Virginia leads 24-2-2.
Kickoff: 3:45 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ESPNU.
Outlook: Richmond, which yielded 22 rushing yards
last week's 28-10 win over Elon, will look to compound
Virginia's rushing woes. The combination of QB Eric
Ward and RB Josh Vaughn will pose problems for a
Cavaliers defense that gave up 558 yards against USC.
Western Carolina at Florida State
Records: Western Carolina 1-0 (0-0 I-AA Southern);
Florida State 0-0 (0-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Western
Carolina's Dennis Wagner (45-37-1); Florida State's Bob
Bowden (373-119-4). Series: Florida State leads 2-0.
Kickoff: 6 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: Pay-per-view.
Outlook: It will be difficult for Western Carolina to
replicate the success it had in last week's 35-0 win over
Shorter College, but the Seminoles should be leery of
quarterback Andy Horn. Florida State must play with
more discipline after ranking last in the conference witl
66.9 penalty yards in 2007.
William & Mary at N.C. State
Records: William & Mary 0-0 (0-0 I-AA Colonial); N.C.
State 0-1 (0-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: William & Mary':
Jimmye Laycock (182-134-2); N.C. State's Tom O'Brien
(80-53). Series: N.C. State leads 11-8. Kickoff: 6 p.m. E
Saturday. TV: None.
Outlook: This game gives N.C. State the opportunity
to instill some confidence in an offense that collected 13
yards and committed four turnovers last week against
South Carolina.
Maryland at Middle Tennessee State
Records: Maryland 1-0 (0-0 ACC Atlantic); Middle
Tennessee State 0-1 (0-1 Sun Belt). Coaches: Maryland'
Ralph Friedgen (57-31); Middle Tennessee State's Rick
Stockstill (12-14). Series: Maryland leads 2-0. Kickoff: '
p.m. ET Saturday. TV: Comcast Sports South.
Outlook: As long as Da'Rel Scott runs the ball effec-
tively and the defense can penetrate the line of scrim-
mage, the Terrapins should dodge another bullet. The
Blue Raiders yielded five sacks and gave up 164 rushing
yards in last week's 31-17 loss to Troy.
Northwestern at Duke
Records: Northwestern 1-0 (0-0 Big Ten); Duke 1-0 (0-C
ACC Coastal). Coaches: Northwestern's Pat Fitzgerald
(11-14); Duke's David Cutcliffe (45-29). Series: Duke
leads 8-7. Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET Saturday. TV:
ACCSelectcom.
Outlook: Northwestern's Tyrell Sutton, who rushed
for 144 yards in last week's 30-10 win over Syracuse, wi
look to expose a Blue Devils run defense that looked vn
nerable on James Madison's lone touchdown drive.
Miami at Florida
Records: Miami 1-0 (0-0 ACC Coastal); Florida 1-0 (0-0
SEC East). Coaches: Miami's Randy Shannon (6-7);
Florida's Urban Meyer (71-16). Series: Miami leads 28-
Kickoff: 8 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ESPN.
Outlook: This game against reigning Heisman Trop
winner Tim Tebow and the Gators may just show that t
Hurricanes are a year away. Florida returned two inter-
ceptions for TDs, got four rushing TDs and scored on.

GAME OF THE WEEK
Georgia Tech at Boston College


'IOSTON COLL Making just his
second career start,
fifth-year senior Chris Crane scored on
nc. touchdown runs of 10 and 6 yards and
led the Eagles to a 21-0 win over Kent
State. Former QB Matt Ryan, who will
be the Atlanta Falcons' opening-day
starter, scored two rushing touchdowns
during the entire 2007 season.
t SON Saturday's 34-10 loss to
Alabama marked the first
season opener that a nationally ranked
Clemson team has dropped since a 13-7
setback to Georgia in 1982. The Tigers'
zero rushing yards is their worst
performance on the ground since 1947,
when they collected minus-1 in a 32-22
loss to Boston College.
Quarterback Thaddeus Lewis,
who had his eighth career
multi-touchdown game in the Blue
Devils' 31-7 win over James Madison, is
one of four Duke players to have started
at least 24 consecutive games. Eron
Riley has gotten a start in each of
S Duke's past 26 games, and Vince
Oghobaase and Rob Shirmann have
started the past 25 contests.
IORIDA ST. The Seminoles will be a
running back short
when they play host to Western Carolina
Saturday. Junior Tavares Pressley will
miss the entire 2008 season after
tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in
his left knee in practice. Pressley was
expected to be a backup to senior
Antone Smith.
IUi-TECH The Yellow Jackets' triple-
option offense made its
debut with 349 rushing yards and six
m) touchdowns against Jacksonville State.
Running back Jonathan Dwyer had 112
yards and two scores on 10 carries, while

yards and two touchdowns.
HMRYLAND Helping Maryland to a
"llY 14-7 win over Delaware,
(0- Da'Rel Scott set a school record
0); Saturday for most rushing yards in a
season opener with 197. The
performance tied for 16th on the
in school's single-gamelist and was the
best by a Maryland player since Bruce
Perry rushed for 237 yards against Wake
Forest in 2003.
lllM Il Bolstered by a 21-point first
quarter, the Hurricanes
recorded a 52-7 win over Charleston
Southernin their first home opener at
bby Dolphins Stadium. The first quarter was
Miami's highest scoring quarter in
nearly two years, and the 52-point
performance was the Hurricanes' highest
output since Oct. 5, 2005 against Duke.
ibSAROUNA Senior wide receiver
hBrandon 'ate
collected a school single-game record
397 all-purpose yards in Saturday's 35-
27 win over McNeese State. The previous
school record of 339 yards was posted by
s Derrick Fenner in 1986 against
Virginia. The 397 all-purpose yards are
T the second-most in ACC history, trailing
only Wake Forest's John Leach's 15-
y year-old conference record of 411.
38 QoB0TATE B Russell Wilson was
carted off the field with a
grade 3 concussion after taking a knee
to the head in the second quarter of the
season-opening 34-0 loss to South
Carolina. N.C. State has suffered
s consecutive shutout losses for the first
7 time since 1956.
gGINIA Third-ranked Southern
California posted a 52-7
victory over the Cavaliers in Saturday's
opener at Scott Stadium. The Trojans
g were the highest ranked non-league
opponent to face Virginia since then-No.
2 Notre Dame in the 1998 Kickoff
Classic. Virginia dropped to 2-16-1 all-
time against top-five programs.
flTEmCU A touchdown return off a
blocked punt late in the
fourth quarter propelled East Carolina to.
a 27-22 upset victory over the 17th-
S ranked Holdkies. Earlier in the game,
- Virginia Tech burnished "Beamer Ball's"
reputation by scoring two points off a
blocked extra point. The Hokies are 17-1
in games where they have scored off
unsuccessful conversions.
-5 KE FOREST With the season-
25. opening 41-13
victory at Baylor, junior OB Riley
hy Skinner became the winningest signal-
the caller in school history. It was the 19th
career win for Skinner, who completed
a 12 of his first 13 passes and collected
ii. 220 yards and three touchdowns.
