^^^ LETER TO THE EDIB ;u TORM
To the Editor:
Woo Hoo! I really think
Blountstown Main Street has
something here with the River
Valley Marketplace that
opened Saturday. Although the
sun, the heat and the tail end of
a head cold prohibited me from
staying long, I thoroughly
enjoyed seeing what everyone
had to sell and even give away!
I was given a sample of a
pecan tassie and a pound cake
bite. I bought a box of the
tassies. Nuts are good for you,
right? I really could have gone
for one of those big homemade
layer cakes under one canopy,
but settled for a few homemade
chocolate chip cookies being
sold by a real beauty queen, a
small loaf of fruit bread and a
small jar of plum jam.
It was so. nice to hear live
music being played softly as I
walked around. The little balle-
rina girls were beautiful in their
colorful tu-tu's and added just
the right touch of class. The
white and beige tents and
canopies really gave the
Marketplace a clean appear-
ance. I was also thrilled to see
lemonade served in such a gor-
geous old-fashioned way! All of
the produce and nursery items
were well-presented. I saw peo-
ple taking end-of-season water-
melons to their vehicles and
some were asking about the
pepper plants for sale.
All'of the artists and craft
persons were diverse and
offered unique, quality hand-
made items at really good
prices. There were watercolor
renditions of the M&B train on
notecards, stroller blankets &
matching bibs lined in soft vin-
tage chenille bedspread fabric,
heavy and earthy pottery,
hand-strung beaded jewelry
The Wakulla Bank green-
way was a perfect spot for the
premier of River Valley
Marketplace, but I have a feel-
ing it's going to expand. As I
walked around, I caught bits of
conversation such as, "You
know, I could finish making all
those..." and "I think next time
I'll sell plates of chicken &
dumplin's with...." and "Hey, I
could make- pumpkin rolls for
October!" and even "My sister
in Alabama would probably like
to sell her, homemade.... "
In these hard times of eco-
nomic strife and assembly-line
products, it's refreshing to know
that our community is doing it's
part to keep alive the true
small-town American free
enterprise. Kudos to
Blountstown Main Street for
bringing together farmers and
artists, dancers and bakers and
jelly makers, potters, crafters,
musicians and cooks to the very
heart of downtown Blountstown
for an opportunity to buy, sell or
just enjoy the socializing. I'm
looking forward to the next
River Valley Marketplace!

Now that Youth Baseball All
Star Tournaments and World
Series are behind us, I would
like to try to answer a question
that I have been asked on
numerous occasions during the
years I have been associated
with youth baseball.
How are players chosen to
play on the All Star team?
I did some calling around the
state of Florida and a few other
neighboring states and asked
how these players are chosen.
In most cases the coaches of
the regular season teams nomi-
nate players from their team to
be entered on the All Star bal-
lot. The names are put on a bal-
lot and the coaches vote on the
Depending on how many
players are allowed on a roster,
then the top vote getters are
placed on the team.
Some leagues use a points
system with each head coach
and assistant coach being allot-
ted a specified number of points
to use to choose the All Star
Other leagues let the team
that finished the regular season
in first place represent that
league in their tournament.
In most cases, the coaches of
the regular season first-place
* team are asked to coach the All
While talking with the differ-
ent leagues, they were quick to
let me know that there are
many different aspects of the
game that they use to deter-
mine how their vote is cast.
Most leagues said that a
player's attitude during practice
and games is considered, as is
the ability to play multiple posi-

Does this always happen?
One would hope so but we all
know that this is not always the
As in anything, whether it's a
job, professional sport, All Stars
or youth baseball, there is
always a chance that the best
aren't always chosen.
Unfortunately at times,-
someone gets chosen because of
who they know, or who their
family might be or because they
have been on the team before.
Is there any foolproof system
when, it comes to choosing an
All Star team? Not that I have
heard of in my years in the
sport. Does this mean that we
sit back and accept the system?
As in anything we do there is
always room to improve upon
our current system.
Whatever system they use to
pick the All Star team in your
area, if you disagree with it, see

I'm glad I don't have to vote
on who makes it and who does-
n't because no matter how hard
we try there will be a number of
deserving children who will not

For those who make the
team, good luck in your
prospective tournament. Those
who aren't on the team, hold
your heads high because you
are an All Star and a winner for
just playing the game.
Almost two years ago, I
founded the Calhoun County
Humane Society to promote
animal welfare while serving
Calhoun and Liberty counties.
Because our local governments
have failed to provide essential
animal services to citizens, we
have been compelled to rescue
and shelter ninety-five animals,
even though it is not part of our
ongoing mission to do so.
Almost all were "dumped" and
left to starve. Many of these
were also sick or injured. Of
these, thirty-three remain, here
and in foster care.
Because so many resources
have been going for their sup-
port, we must find homes or
shelters for them to better
accomplish our mission and do
the most good for our communi-
ty. More importantly, these
-dogs need homes and the love
and affection of their own fami-
Not only have our County
Commissioners failed to provide
citizens with essential .animal
services and a shelter to take in
homeless, unwanted, abused
and neglected animals, our
Sheriff's Offices are not per-
forming their duties of enforcing
Florida animal control and pro-
tection laws. Consequently, as
soon as I founded the Humane
Society, citizens began calling
on us to help needy animals.
Most have been given shelter
here, where I have largely been
providing, and funding, their
care myself; the rest have been
in foster homes that are provid-
ing and caring for them. I trust-
ed that we would Tbe able to
shelter them until we found
homes for them or convinced
officials to provide a shelter for
them. Unfortunately, our offi-
cials have ydt to do anything
about our need .for animal serv-
ices and a shelter, and there
have not been nearly enough
homes for them.
resources that have gone into
sheltering these animals, we
have still been able to serve our
community in other ways. We
have responded to many citi-
zen's calls for assistance and
information; assisted citizens in
spaying and neutering over a
hundred animals; established a
website; and educated people
on humane attitudes towards
animals. This we have primari-
ly done through our participa-
tion in the 2006 and 2007
annual, Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement "Goat Day", festi-
vals. (In 2006, we educated
-the public on the pet overpopu-
lation problem and the impor-
tance of spaying and neutering,
and exhibited and taught about
the Dixiee dingos" that still run
wild in the swamps and piney
woods of the South. In' 2007,
we brought dogs for children to
visit and pet; distributed sever-
al hundred "Be Kind to
Animals" children's activity
books; and provided informa-
tion on. animal issues such as
pet overpopulation and animal
neglect and abuse.) We have
alsolobbied officials to solve our
animal control and protection
problems, giving four presenta-
tions to Calhoun County
Commissioners and one to the
Blountstown City Council, but
we have gotten nowhere with
them. The fourth, (and last),
time that I spoke to our. County
Commission, I told them that
solving these problems was
about more. than protecting and
controlling animals. It is also
about the example that we, as a
society, are setting for our chil-
dren, and the opportunities we
are missing to teach them kind-
ness, compassion, and responsi-
bility. When I finished, I saw
smirks on some of their faces. It
is clear that these
Commissioners will not solve
our problems; so we have been,
and will continue, actively cam-
paigning for the election of offi-
cials who are willing and able to
do so. We have also recently
begun pursuing the prosecution
of animal neglect and cruelty
There is still much to do. We
need to apply for the tax-
exempt status that would make
us eligible for grants and other
funding; plan and prepare for
our best "Goat Day" ever;, and
expand and improve our web-
site. We also want develop pro-
grams, such as visiting health
and rehabilitation centers and
classrooms, to benefit our sick,'
elderly, and children. Another
goal is find ways to reduce the
number of lost pets and aid in
the recovery of those that are.
With your support in giving
homes or shelter to our dogs, we
can accomplish these things.
These are all good dogs that are
vaccinated, socialized, and
house-trained. Most are
already spayed and neutered.
Most have been here a year or
more, running free on five
acres,'so leaving will be hard on
them. Placement in homes,
rather than shelters, would ease
their transition, so we is hope.
that many find homes right
away, and that those that must
go to other shelters have short'
stays before finding homes. You
can see their pictures on our
w e b s i t e ,
y.net. If you can help us, by
adopting or giving our dogs shel-
ter, please call (850)674-4075.

BY RON GILLIARD
Let me discuss a topic that's
very important to this hospital.
Most large hospitals, and
many small ones, have formal
"Foundations" that accept
donations to the hospitals. Such
donations assist in many won-
derful ways, for example, to
help defray the costs of pur-
chasing equipment, renova-
tions, building new additions or
even new hospitals.
To be very frank, it's tough
in the health care business
today, and especially for small,
rural hospitals. We're pleased
with the progress we've made
to "turn around" Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital. But we have
a lot of challenges still facing us
as all hospitals do.
The amount of,"free care"
we provide will approach over
two million dollars this year! If
we provide this amount of care
without any compensation, you
can begin to see a little bit of
our problem. Cuts to Medicare
and Medicaid continue each
year. So, Foundations can be
critical to hospitals.
It's a wonderful way for local
citizens and businesses to help
support their local hospital. It
also allows a well deserved tax
break for those making dona-

does not have a "Foundation."
However, we are a "not-for-
profit" hospital, operated by a
board of local citizens. That
makes us eligible to receive
donations just as any formal
Foundation. The official term
from the Internal Revenue
Service is a "501 (3) private,

it makes us just like a

ALTHA, SEPTEMBER 2 -
A day after celebrating Labor
Day, the Altha Lady Wildcats
Middle School A Team decided
to do a little celebrating of their
own. In Altha's first volleyball
match of the season, Coach
Leanna Hall led her Lady
Wildcats to a victory over the
Port St. Joe Sharks, 25-23 and
Dina Vaughn, who led the
Lady Wildcats with 6 service
points, opened the first game of
the match by giving Altha a 3-1
However, that lead was
short-lived as the Sharks
responded with 4 service points
of their own to go on.top 6-3.
Altha tied the game at 14
with Vaughn's last three service
points. They stayed a point
ahead and won it on Chelsea
Murphy's service point.
In Game 2 Port St. Joe
opened up a 7-3 lead but
Camilla Taylor knotted the
game at 9 with her three serv-

D.ina Vaughn and Tanner
McKenzie were the top scorers
in the match with 7 service
points each. McKenzie May
had 5, Camilla Taylor added 4
and Brianna Yon came away
with 3 service points.

in their match, 18-25 and 12-

Coach Carylee Sewell's jun-
ior varsity squad hit the hard-
wood ready to play last week
and it showed as they have yet
to lose a game and are 3-0 on
the young season. Last Tuesday
they squared off against the
Liberty County Lady Bulldogs
and quickly took care of busi-
ness, 25-15 and 25-23.
With her opening serve,
Ariel Folsom, gave Altha a 4-0
lead with 3 straight service
points and that would be as
close the Lady Bulldogs would
get the rest of the game.
In the second game Liberty
County jumped out to 6-1 lead
and the Lady Cats had to work
to climb back on top. Angela
Waldron answered that call
with 9 straight service points to
give Altha a 13-11 lead.

game at 19 but Ariel Folsom's

End the summer season with a
'staycation' at a Florida State Park
With the summer vacation
season winding down, the
Florida Department of
(DEP) is encouraging Florida
residents to plan one last "itay-
cation" at-any one of Florida's
161 award-winning state parks.
"A. "staycation" is a great
way for travelers to get away
without depleting their wallets
and gas tanks and explore
Florida's natural and cultural
resources in their own back-
yards," said DEP's Division of
Recreation and Parks Director
Mike Bullock. "With Florida's
abundance of springs, rivers
and beaches in state parks,
guests can beat the summer
heat while remaining close to
home and avoiding the stress of
a long distance trip."

Parks Web page at www.flori-

Florida's natural and cultural
resources instead of making an
out-of-state road trip not only'
reduces expenses it also enables
travelers' to reduce their car-
bon footprint, enjoy an unique
part of nature and remain envi-

vided by springs, rivers and
"Staycations" don't have to
be expensive either, the regular

Marianna rushes by Tigers, 34-7
The Marianna Bulldogs
turned three Blountstown Tiger
turnovers into 21 points Friday
night in Marianna and cruised
to a 34-7 non-district victory.
The Tigers put together a good
drive to open the second half
capped off by a Malcolm Ivory
2 yard blast for a touchdown.
Jared King's PAT made the
score 14-7 at the time, but the
Bulldogs put 20 points on the
scoreboard in the fourth quarter
to seal the victory.
"Our kids hung in there. for
three quarters with them.
They were a good blocking
team and their runningbacks
were talented and ran hard.
They had no turnovers and just
kept attacking us," Coach Greg
Jordan said Monday. "We've
got to become more consistent,
eliminate our turnovers and
make plays when we have the
opportunity to score."
Highly touted runningback
Bradley Battles carried the ball
24 times for 175 yards and two
touchdowns against the Tigers.
The Bulldogs amassed 361
yards rushing on 28 attempts
for a 7.4 yard per rush average.
Marianna attempted only one
pass in the game that was near-
The Tiger offense moved the
ball on several drives but would
commit a costly penalty or turn
the ball over. Some key passes
were dropped or overthrown to
end scoring threats. The Tigers
rushed for 128 yards on 28
attempts for a 4,6 yard per
carry average. Ivory led the
Tiger ground attack with 51
yards on 10 carries including a
touchdown. Quarterback heath
Bailey ran for 24 yards on 8
carries. Alexander Garrett
added 27 yards and Darrin Huff
rushed for 18 yards in the
Bailey was under pressure
on almost every pass attempt
and completed 3 of 12 for 47
yards and had one pass inter-
cepted. Backup PJ. Buggs
completed one pass, but for no
yards. Cavon Cox had two
receptions for 47 yards. Ivory
and T.J. Rainer each had a
catch in the game for one yard
Starter Chase Johnson suf-
fered an injury before halftime
when a Marianna player's foot
struck him in the face. Johnson
would later require 27 stitches
around his left eye. "Chase will
be a game day decision for
Friday night," Jordan noted.
Despite a painful shoulder,
Jason Money led the Tiger
defense with 12 tackles from his
defensive end position. Cavon
Cox also played well being in on
11 tackles. Shane Bailey had
10 tackles including 2 for losses.
Jeremy Watson and Lance
Clemons each had 8 tackles fol-
lowed closely by Ivory with 7.
Darrin Huff, Alexander
Garrett, Brandon Smith, Chase

A close game that got away.
That was the story for' the
Tigers as we traveled to
Marianna last Friday night to
take on the class 2A Bulldogs.
Marianna used a very phys-

to go in the third quarter turned
into a 34-7 blowout by games.

tum after the third quarter TD,
but Marianna answered with a
95 yard drive to take a 21-7
lead and control of the game.
The Tigers had three huge
turnovers that Marianna con-
verted to 21 points that was
the difference in the game. Our
kids played as hard as they
could but too many mistakes
and some poor tackling late in
the game was too much to over-
come. Marianna has a very
good high school football team

early in the season. The effort
was there and we will learn

Lady Wildcats cont'd
the Lady Cats back out in front,
Angela Waldron led her
team with 9 service points,
Ariel Folsom added 8, and
Sharlyn Smith posted 6 points.
Coach Miranda Rehberg's
Varsity Lady Wildcats (0-1)
started out strong against
Liberty County (1-0) winning
their first two games, 25-16 and
25-19, but lost their focus that
resulted in the loss of their last
three games,. 17-25, 9-25 and
Altha fell behind 6-3 but 3
straight service points by
Cessna Folsom gave the Lady
Wildcats a 13-11 lead. Lonnie
Johnson followed her with 3
service points and extended
Altha's lead to 17-14. Folsom
would seal the win for the Lady
Wildcats with 3 more service
Game two was close until
Christy Simmons put Altha
ahead by two points, 9-7.
Rebecca Wiltse stretched that
lead to 14-9 and Emily Brooks
left no doubt about the outcome
as she caught fire with 6
straight service points of her
own to put her team out in
front, .22-15. The final tally
was 25-19 in favor of Altha.
The wheels began to come
off in Game 3 as the Lady
Wildcats got out of position that
resulted in 78 errors and left
huge gaps in their defense for
Liberty County to exploit. It
was a nip and tuck affair until
Liberty County pulled ahead
halfway through the game, 12-
6. Then they put it out of reach
with a 5 point run that made it
21-10) and Altha couldn't make
up the deficit as they went
Altha's inability to get their
first serves in Game 4 made it
easy for Liberty County to take
a 25-9 victory.
Again, the Lady Wildcats
were still infected with "first-
serveoutis" and Liberty County
won the final game, 15-7,. and
Leading the Wildcats ini
scoring was Emily Brooks with
11 service points; Cessna
Folsom had 10 and 4 aces; Loni
Johnson tallied 9 points and 2
aces, Rebecca Wiltse came
away with 6 points along with a
team-leading 5 aces; Christy
Simmons chalked up 5 points
and 2 aces, Cortney Harris was,
credited with 4 points and 2
aces; and Tammy Johnson
scored 3 points.
A French proverb says,
The day is lost in which
one has not laughed."
Aswith most proverbs,
this is not always true.
Laughter is out of
T77m Adams place in a situation of
Funeral D to serious sickness or
death. With the
exception of these and
perhaps a few other cases, it can otherwise
be said that mirth is the medicine of God.
Laughter is a language everybody
understands in most circumstances. It is a
healthy outlet and especially when you can
laugh at yourself. Laughter is in fact a sixth
sense. Look around you. Surely you can find
something to laugh at. It is an excellent tonic
to relieve jitters, nervousness and memories
of past agonies. Even in troublesome times,
many situations can be kept under control
with a smile or a good laugh.
Don't ever doubt that humor, a smile or a
good laugh can often bring hope where there
is hopelessness. It can lighten the load and,
stop the sting of personal problems that
come to us all. Actually, and there is no doubt
about it, he who laughs... lasts:

varsity came away with their
first win of the season with a
four-game set against
Bethlehem, 21-25, 25-13, 25-
19, and 25-11.
Maybe it was the long bus
ride or the fact' that it was
Friday that made the JV Lady
Cats play sluggish in their first
game. They fell behind 6-1
before Kelsey Rehberg's four
service points brought Altha to
within a point, 12-13. Ariel
Folsom put the Lady Cats
ahead, 19-16 with 5 straight

before the deadline for filing a petition. Choosing
mediation will not adversely.affect the right to a
hearing if mediation does not result in a settle-
ment. The procedures for pursuing mediation are
set forth below.
Mediation may only take place if the
Department and all the parties to the proceeding
agree that mediation is appropriate. A person
may pursue mediation by reaching a mediation
agreement with all parties to the proceeding
(which include the Respondent, the Department,
and any person who has filed a timely and suffi-
cient petition for a hearing) and by showing how
the substantial interests of each mediating party
are affected by the Consent Order. The agree-
ment must be filed in (received by) the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, MS #35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, within 10 days after the

(h) The signatures of all parties or their author-
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida
Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to
mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, 'Florida Statutes,
for requesting and holding an administrative
hearing. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties,
the mediation must be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of the agreement. If medi-
ation results in settlement of the administrative.
dispute, the Department must enter a final order
incorporating the agreement of the parties.
Persons whose substantial interests will be
affected by such a modified final decision of the
Department have a right to petition for a hearing
only in accordance with the requirements for
such petitions set forth above, and must therefore
file their petitions within 21 days of receipt of this
notice. If mediation terminates without settle-
ment of the dispute, the Department shall notify
all parties in writing that the administrative hear-
ing processes under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for dis-
position of the dispute, and the notice will specify
the deadlines that then will apply for challenging
the agency action and electing remedies under
those two statutes.

GAME 0OF THE WEEK
Georgia at South Carolina
"Dawgs look for respect
O nce the national darling, the Georgia football team
appears to be getting the Rodney Dangerfield treat-
Despite a 45-21 victory over Georgia Southern in the
season opener, the Bulldogs slipped a spot in the national
polls to No. 2. The second slight occurred this past week-
end when Knowshon Moreno's spectacular 29-yard run
that saw him hurdle over a Central Michigan defender
was ignored by the national highlight shows.
"They missed the boat or didn't do their homework,"
Georgia head coach Mark Richt said a day after his
team's 56-17 win over the Chippewas. "I don't know how
they didn't use that. It will be on our highlights for years."
Georgia, which essentially guaranteed itself the top
spot in the preseason polls with its dismantling of Hawaii
in the 2008 Sugar Bowl, is unfairly being torn down by
the media. Only after the release of the preseason polls
did the pundits start to talk about the Bulldogs' brutal
schedule, which includes games at Arizona State, LSU
and Auburn, plus the annual showdown in Jacksonville
Perhaps the naysayers are right about Georgia, and
Steve Spurrier's South Carolina Gamecocks may expose
the Bulldogs' weaknesses this Saturday afternoon at
Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia. Spurrier's teams at
Florida and South Carolina have always given Georgia
problems, but even avenging last year's 16-12 loss to South
Carolina will most likely not help the Bulldogs' cause.
Records: Georgia 2-0 (0-0 SEC East); South Carolina
1-1 (0-1 SEC East). Coaches: Georgia's Mark Richt'
(74-19); South Carolina's Steve Spurrier (164-57-2).
Series: Georgia leads 44-14-2. KickOff: 3:30 p.m. ET
Saturday. TV: CBS.
Outlook: The nation's top-ranked pass defense will
look to deflate Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford,
but the Gamecocks may struggle to slow Moreno.
Spurrier has to turn it down a little bit and demonstrate
some patience with the team's quarterbacks.
THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
UAB at Tennessee
Records: UAB 0-2 (0-1 Conference USA East); Tennessee
0-1 (0-0 SEC East). Coaches: UAB's Nell Callaway (2-12);
Tennessee's Phillip Fulmer (147-46). Series: Tennessee
leads 2-0. Kickoff: 12:30 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: Raycom.
Outlook: The Volunteers have to use Saturday's game
as an opportunity to improve their special teams. Place-
kicker Daniel Lincoln, a 2007 Freshman All-American,
missed three of his four field-goal attempts against UCLA,
and the 2008 squad became the first Fulmer-coached team
to yield a touchdown on a blocked punt
Arkansas at Texas
Records: Arkansas 2-0 (0-0 SEC West); Texas 2-0 (0-0 Big
12 South). Coaches: Arkansas' Bobby Petrino (43-9);
Texas' Mack Brown (191-99). Series: Texas leads 55-21.
Kickoff: 2:30 p.m. CT Saturday. TV: ABC.
Outlook: The Razorbacks' upset hopes will hinge on
whether QB Casey Dick can repeat the success he had
against Western Illinois and Louisiana-Monroe. Texas will
counter with Colt McCoy, who ranks 10th nationally in
passing efficiency and 13th in total offense, and a defense
that has given up only 23 points in two games.
Samford at Mississippi
Records: Samford 2-0 (0-0 I-AA Southern); Mississippi 1-1
(0-0 SEC West). Coaches: Samford's Pat Sullivan (30-49-1);
Mississippi's Houston Nutt (112-71). Series: First meet-
ing. Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT Saturday. TV: None.
Outlook: The Rebels cannot afford to overlook uns
feated Samford, but the Bulldogs should help Housto:
Nutt's squad work on its defense and return game.
Mississippi ranks last in the conference in four defen:
categories, while the kickoff return and punt return u
rank 94th and 116th, respectively, among Division I-A
Auburn at Mississippi State
Records: Auburn 2-0 (0-0 SEC West); Mississippi Stat
(0-0 SEC West). Coaches: Auburn's Tommy Tubervill
(107-53); Mississippi State's Sylvester Croom (18-31).
Series: Auburn leads 56-23-2. Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT
Saturday. TV: ESPN2.
Outlook: Mississippi State must have success on f
down against an Auburn team that ranks first in the c
ference with an opponent third-down conversion rate
9.4 percent Will the Tigers get another big game out
senior wide receiver Rodgeriqus Smith, who has colle
201 of his 1,323 career receiving yards in three game
against the Bulldogs?
Rice at Vanderbilt
Records: Rice 2-0 (2-0 Conference USA West); Vanden
2-0 (1-0 SEC East). Coaches: Rice's David Bailiff (26-2
Vanderbilt's Bobby Johnson (82-86). Series: Vanderbi
leads 2-1. Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT Saturday. TV: None.
Outlook: The Commodores have to contain Rice q
terback Chase Clement and show that they can hand]
success. In addition to averaging 83.5 rushing yards i
the Owls' first two games, Clement ranks seventh nat
ally in total offense.
Middle Tennessee at Kentucky
Records: Middle Tennessee 1-1 (0-1 Sun Belt); Kentu
2-0 (0-0 SEC East)..Coaches: Middle Tennessee's Ric
Stockstill (13-14); Kentucky's Rich Brooks (118-144-4)
Series: Kentucky leads 1-0. Kickoff: 7 p.m. ET Saturd
TV: None.. I
Outlook: A little consistency to complement the bi
play ability of Kentunky quarterback Randall Cobb, w
relieved starter Mike Hartline and accounted for 135
yards of total offense and three touchdowns against
Norfolk State. After intercepting three passes in last
week's 24-14 win over Maryland, the Blue Raiders agr
once again hoping to thrive on turnovers.
Western Kentucky at Alabama
Records: Western Kentucky 1-1 (I-A Independent);
Alabama 2-0 (0-0 SEC West). Coaches: Western
Kentucky's David Elson (8-6); Alabama's Nick Saban
(10048-1). Series: First meeting. Kickoff: 6:07 p.m. C
Saturday. TV: Pay-per-view.
Outlook: The Alabama offensive line has to dp a be
job of protecting quarterback John Parker Wilson, wh
was sacked four times and completed only 11 of his 23
pass attempts in last week's 20-6 win over Tulane. Wes
Kentucky rushed for 248 yards and yielded 20 rushing
yards in Saturday's 37-13 win at Eastern Kentucky.
North Texas at LSU
Records: North Texas 0-2 (0-0 Sun Belt); LStJ 1-0 (0-0
SEC West). Coaches: North Texas' Todd Dodge (2-12
LSU's Les Miles (63-27). Series: LSU leads 2-0. Kicko
p.m. CT Saturday. TV: Pay-per-view.
Outlook: The defending national champions will h
to block out the outside distractions in what should b
glorified scrimmage. North Texas ranks 102nd or wo
nationally in scoring offense, total defense, pass effici
defense, pass defense and scoring defense.
