The AP is back on the Austin Peay helmet


apsuhelmetAustin Peay State University LogoThe AP is back, on the helmet, that is.

Austin Peay’s football team was surprised Saturday afternoon when they reported to the Dunn Center to play Eastern Kentucky. The players found the AP back on the helmet for the first time in three years.

“It all part of the process, all part of the plan,” said APSU coach Rick Christophel before the game. “Everything is going to be red and white. We got new uniforms this year with white pants. Our next thing will be going back to white facemasks.”

When Christophel took over as APSU’s head coach after the 2006 season, replacing Carroll McCray, who resigned, the AP was not placed on the helmets when APSU bought new helmets.

Christophel is an APSU alum having played quarterback from 1971-74.

Governors stun Colonels; end 22-game losing streak to EKU


Austin Peay State University LogoAustin Peay State University snapped a 22-game losing streak to Eastern Kentucky, Saturday night, as it rallied in the second half to defeat the No. 20 Colonels, 24-20, at Governors Stadium, in Ohio Valley Conference action.

The victory ended the nation’s third longest losing streak to a single opponent. APSU last defeated the Colonels, Oct. 1, 1977 when Randy Christophel, the brother of current APSU coach Rick Christophel, was the quarterback. It included back-to-back losses to the Colonels after the Govs returned to the OVC in 2007. It also snapped a 17-game Govs losing streak to the Colonels in Governors Stadium.
The Governors got 176 rushing yards from Terrence Holt, including an 80 yarder and a go-ahead 12-yard third quarter score to snare the victory. APSU defense, which had forced just seven turnovers all season long, recovered three fumbles and grabbed one interception in the game—that interception by Zac Burkhart came with 1:19 left in the game at the APSU 41 yard line.

From there Austin Peay ran out the clock as the Govs won their second straight to improve to 3-4 overall, 2-2 in the OVC while the No. 20 Colonels slip to 4-3 overall, 4-2 in the OVC. «Read the rest of this article»

APSU wraps up 1st capital campaign


Austin Peay State University capped it’s first capital campaign with an appreciation dinner for campaign donors and the APSU Foundation Board of Trustees on March 31 in the Morgan University Center Ballroom. APSU officials  announced that $39,475,943 has been committed during the Changing Minds, Changing Lives Capital Campaign, which kicked off in 2003.

Half of the initial goal of $15 million was surpassed during the silent phase of the campaign—a feat, considering that former President Sherry Hoppe bucked the advice of a consultant who recommended against starting a major fundraising campaign, given the lagging economy of the time, the fiscal uncertainty of Tennessee higher education and the many other local nonprofit organizations already in the midst of fundraising efforts. «Read the rest of this article»
