Let's talk about the college team in our area closest to a national title. That is, of course, the Valdosta State Blazers representing the southeast.
To the North they find the California Vulcans who came into the tournament ranked 6th in the nation, but they have only gotten better as their undefeated 13 and 0 record shows.
Judging by their teleconference with the media yesterday, the Blazers will battle a confident, and cocky team.
"They're just a very proud football team, and rightfully so, they're 13-0, they're playing with a lot of confidence right now. Their quarterback is playing very well, their defensive end and linebacker is the defensive player of the year in that conference, they're a very proud bunch," says VSU Head Football Coach David Dean.
