HS Football: Logan takes the ark from Central

By RICK SOLEMricks@mwfbroadcasting.com Five points, 3 minutes, 67 yards, 3,000 fans and the 88th meeting for one ark – no problem. Call them the odd couple: a 5-foot-10, 155-pound quarterback named Mitchell Schreiner and his 230-pound running back, Calvin Wright. The two led Logan High School’s football team to a ridiculous fourth-quarter, winning drive – […]

The Washington Redskins were never in the mix and the 38-20 score is no indication to how lopsided a win this was at Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon. Nobody in the NFC looked better, but, perhaps, that’s because the front […]

By RICK SOLEM ricks@mwfbroadcasting.com All the momentum had shifted. A crowd-oohing stick by UW-La Crosse senior Brett Benson forced a fumble.

UW-L FB can’t recover from slow start

By RICK SOLEMricks@mwfbroadcasting.com Sometimes, it looks like the first game of the season. For the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse football team, that was exactly the case – figuratively and literally. The defense didn’t show up to start. The offense took the first quarter off and, before the Eagles knew it, they had a 21-point deficit. That […]

Column: RICK SOLEMricks@mwfbroadcasting.com Finally, baseball is over and the NFL is here! That’s how I feel about it anyway. Then again, I’ve felt that way for most of the summer. Here’s the NFC by division. I feel like the NFC is a lot more competitive top to bottom than the AFC … except for the […]
