CIAA officials have cancelled the championship game, and I'm assuming the investigation is ongoing.

A VSU alum on r/cfb said that it's not surprising players were responsible for assault - many of the homecoming events were cancelled after a fight between several students devolved into stabbings.

It really sucks for the Rams and for CIAA fans in general - the conference has been good to the Piedmont over the years, but there's absolutely no place for that sort of idiocy.

Why am I sensing a conference-mandated forfeit for Virginia State incoming?

ClavellBCMI: Why am I sensing a conference-mandated forfeit for Virginia State incoming?


Everything I've seen so far indicates they're not even going to worry about that for the time being.  The conference officials are doing the smart thing and just saying it's all about player and fan safety.

Is it just me, or does this sound like a bunch of shiat was being talked by both players and one took a swing at the other and that was about it? I really doubt this guy was jumped by a bunch of players from the other team. It was just one guy, one punch and it was broken up. The player needs to be suspended, but there is no need for the other school to try to play this up as their player was jumped.

Should've just had your team's cheerleaders go sex the other team all night so they'd be tired for the game. Trust me, I saw it in a movie once.

I didnt read anything resembling that in the article. Is there another article somewhere?

FTA
Johnson had a swollen eye and a cut above his eye, according to the police report.

That sounds like one punch, not a sustained beating from multiple people.

FTA
Conference officials say athletes from both schools were in the fight, but Reaves told the Journal that Johnson was the victim.

That sounds like what I said, a bunch of guys talking shiat and one throwing a punch, then it being quickly broken up.

So wait I'm confused. What kind of football championship was this? Was this like FCS or a step below that?

If anybody is watching the UCLA/Washington game, UCLA has a true freshman that plays LB full time and RB part time. This guy has scored 4 rushing TD tonight on 15 rushes for 60 yards. His name is Miles Jack, and I'm sure his name is going to be really trending by tomorrow.

Game canceled after QB is beat up

It's all Richie Incognito's fault.

Good point.  They should just be glad nobody came after the QB's whole farking family.

They are so mad at the football teams that they canceled the volleyball championship.

Had to look it up to make sure you weren't calling the VSU team the Rams.  You understand my confusion, what with Virginia being a commonwealth and not a state.

\and amazingly, I can claim "in before the race card is played"

Ok guys, call off the investigation. Super detective here has solved the crime based on a poorly written article

No, you're supposed to destroy the star players car, then blame the other team for it.

Virginia State player Lamont Britt (r.) is escorted to a magistrate's office on Friday to face an assault charge.


I think the more important detail is that you felt the need to specify that the guy on the right, in handcuffs and street clothes, is the defendant while the only OTHER person in the picture is a fully uniformed and armed law enforcement officer.

I think he was mocking the actual picture that accompanied one of the articles.

Its amazing to me that even in college some people can't behave, leave shiat on the field douchebag.

Jesus, what a moron. Wait until the game, cheap shot the QB and put him out of the game, and all you get is a 15-yard penalty. And maybe an ejection.
