What seems most notable about J.U. Blacksher is the sheer number of points it puts up. The Bulldogs are averaging more than 36 points per game and have scored at least 38 in seven of their 11 games thus far.

With football season coming to a close any week — and certainly within the next five weeks — Inside the Lines Podcast will slowly start shifting its focus to the winter sports season. Basketball season begins this week and wrestling follows shortly behind.
