Editor James Bennett's column: Give spring football a chance to blossom beyond this season

JSU OVC Champions

JSU players and coaches celebrate their fifth Ohio Valley Conference championship in a row in 2018.

The Gamecocks were scheduled to open their spring season on Sunday at Tennessee State University in Nashville, but the game was postponed because of harsh winter weather in Middle Tennessee.


Jacksonville State lost to LSU, 34-13, during a 2016 game in Baton Rouge, La.
