    The biggest NFL Draft story out of Georgia might have been Division II West Georgia’s defense.
    The Wolves had two players drafted — Dylan Donahue in the 5th round and Alex Armah in the 6th round — and three other defensive players signed free agent contracts. That makes for five total players signing NFL deals from defensive coordinator Scott Symons’ defense. The two draft picks were more than Georgia, Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern or Georgia State this year. UWG’s defense was No. 18 in D2 scoring defense last year and second in the Gulf South Conference. Read full story online at

    New Eastern Washington running backs coach Kevin Maurice ready for challenge
    How badly did Kevin Maurice want to coach to coach at Eastern Washington? Enough to move far from his Midwestern roots. Enough to give up a successful three-year gig at Big Sky Conference rival North Dakota, where he developed some of the best running backs in the Football Championship Subdivision. And enough to give up the not-so-bright lights of Grand Forks for an even smaller setting in Cheney. Then again, consider that Cheney is home to an Eastern Washington program that has cast a light

    Success of Syracuse Women's Basketball Could Push Top Assistant to New Job
    Storrs, Conn. -- The recent soaring accomplishments of the Syracuse women's basketball team has put a shine on everyone associated with the program. Such ascensions almost always come with a price, however. In this case, all those wins will almost certainly cost the team its top assistant, associate head coach Vonn Read. Read has worked under SU head coach Quentin Hillsman for six seasons and looks every bit ready for the job of Division I head coach somewhere. He said he's had a couple of

    How is the Syracuse Women's Basketball Team Modeled after the Soviet Union Hockey Dynasty?
    Syracuse, N.Y.  -- Vonn Read was 9 years old when the "Miracle on Ice'' U.S. hockey team shocked the powerhouse Soviet Union squad in the 1980 Winter Olympics. Like all sports fans at the time, he was filled with pride and awe at the Americans' seemingly impossible accomplishment. As it turned out, that moment was also the beginning of a wonderment that would eventually fuel the philosophy behind his current stint as associate head coach of the Syracuse women's basketball team.

    Rhodes Football Hopes to Returning to Winning Ways under New Coach Jim Ryan
    Since its last season opener, the Rhodes College football program has hit a speed bump, and the reset button. The promise of back-to-back 8-2 seasons evaporated last year when the Lynx lost quarterback Blake Box (concussion) and defensive leader Spencer Smith (knee) on opening weekend. The team finished 4-6 and in December changed head coaches. The new boss is Jim Ryan, a 40-year-old Coloradan who spent the last four seasons as defensive coordinator at Washington University-St. Louis. He

    Basketball Legend Wooden was a Mentor to JC Carter
    What seems like a relatively short time frame of meetings — every couple of weeks over a period of about three years — resulted in a life-altering experience for J.C. Carter, head coach of the Southwest Baptist University’s women’s basketball team. Carter’s chance encounter and subsequent friendship with a basketball legend seems like the stuff of Mitch Albom books or PBS documentaries, but for Carter, it was a time of gaining inspiration for both his on-court and off-court life. From 2004 to
