Quick! Which SoCon team has been the most abused points-wise by AE? And by abused, we mean picked apart worse than Jake Delhomme.
The answer? Poor, poor El Cid. In three meetings between the Bulldog D and AE, the noted landscaper has cut his foes down no fewer than 12 times.
12. Times. No other league rival has given up double-digit TDs to him (yet).
The final dance between the two is Saturday.

Apparently there’s a true dark horse candidate for Heisman. As in, we’re in the dark as to who this is. Wolfpack fans can not be happy. We guess ESPN just assumed the best college football player in North Carolina would be at App State.
FOR THE RECORD: Here’s our “real” Russell Wilson, a four-year Mountaineer best known for his work as a long snapper.
It’s not a challenge to play El Cid there. It’s a challenge to beat them there.
The El Cid blog. Verrrrry nice.
Higgins talks App State. Apparently from outside his dining room.

D.J. Smith gets love for his 16 tackles, two break-ups and two hurries against Lil Sammy – “Smith has been ASU’s leading tackler in all three games this year and ranks 7th nationally with 12.7 tackles per game. In 26 career starts, Smith has registered double-digit stops 12 times.”
The Curry Show has yet to debut in the NBA, and already it’s being trashed – “Q: Can you see yourself playing with Curry in the backcourt? ELLIS: I can’t answer that. Us together? No.” Sorry Curry, but your boast is looking like one long shot you can’t hit.
We got a center for the future – “Fisher is the first Western North Carolina player to accept a football scholarship from Appalachian State since Erwin’s Sherman Holt in 2007. “Graham has proven himself time and time again for us,” Tuscola coach Donnie Kiefer said.”

BTW, in our humble opinion, with regard to that No. 4 throw – the catch was MUCH more spectacular. Awesome footwork. Awesome. But not as awesome as two near sacks, a dropped ball, composure and completion.

It was the kind of play that made standing in a three-hour downpour worthwhile.
And the kind of play that makes Armanti Edwards special.
It was at about the 13-minute mark of the second quarter. Apps facing 2nd and 11 at the Samford 39. AE took the snap and rolled back a bit. Bulldogs came running. One hit him, but couldn’t hold on. AE stayed upright, scanning. Another Bulldog came charging from the other side, AE flinched to flee . . . → Read More: We love a rainy site
