Things went bad for visiting Fairmont State University less than two minutes into its Mountain East Conference battle with Urbana University here Saturday afternoon at Urbana Stadium, and they never got better.
Fairmont prepares for Urbana’s high-flying offense
The challenge is clear.
When Fairmont State University (2-4, 1-4 Mountain East Conference) travels to Urbana (5-2, 5-1 MEC) for a noon game today, the Falcons will be trying to contain the Blue Knights’ top 10 passing offense led by quarterback D.J. Mendenhall, a preseason All-American who has thrown for more than 2,300 yards and 24 touchdowns this season.
FSU kicks off season with Fan Fest: PHOTOS
Fairmont State’s basketball programs started off the season with a slam dunk. Several of them, actually.
Caleb Davis used a windmill dunk and a pair of 360 slams to edge teammate Trevor Andrews-Evans in a dunk competition, much to the delight of the Fighting Falcons basketball supporters gathered at Joe Retton Arena.
FSU opens practice amid great expectations
Call Allen Iverson. We’re talking about practice.
Fairmont State University opens its 2013-2014 season today with the first practice.
While Iverson, an 11-time All-Star, infamously touted the workouts as meaningless, the Falcons know better.
Fan Fest set for Thursday
The way Fairmont State basketball coach Jerrod Calhoun sees it, the Falcons have the best fans in the conference.
They’ll have a chance to prove it on Thursday when the Falcons hold the second annual Fan Fest at 7 p.m. in Joe Retton Arena.
Hiltoppers turn FSU miscues into 27-21 win: PHOTOS
All season long the two teams that have hurt Fairmont State and West Liberty the most have been Fairmont State and West Liberty.
Thus, heading into Saturday's Mountain East Conference showdown between the two schools on homecoming for the Falcons at Duvall-Rosier Field it was very likely that the team which made the fewest amount of miscues would emerge victorious.
Fairmont State hosting Fan Fest on Thursday
Fairmont State basketball fans won’t have to wait long to see their teams in action.

Fairmont State gears up for defensive battle
Fairmont State University football coach Jason Woodman isn’t one to make excuses or beat around the bush.
He’ll admit that the defense has been the strength of the team, producing key turnovers and coming up with timely stops, while a lackluster offense led by freshman quarterback Cooper Hibbs has struggled to find its footing.

Second-half miscues cost FSU in 34-17 loss
The scene here Saturday afternoon at Callaghan Stadium was a bit too familiar for first-year Fairmont State University head coach Jason Woodman.
For the second time this season, Woodman watched his FSU football team take a lead into the halftime locker room only to see it completely disappear due to poor play in the final 30 minutes.
