The Cedar Rapids Titans boast the only 2-0 record in the league. They’re also, along with the Chicago Slaughter, the only teams to play in the first two weeks of the Indoor Football League season.
The Titans own two wins against the Slaugther, but they came in opposite fashion. The first involved a comeback at home; the second involved extinguishing a rally on the road.
Friday night, the Titans return to the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena and finally play someone other than Chicago. They host the Texas Revolution.
When the Revolution take the field Friday, it will mark the first time this season. Texas is the only team in the United Conference that still hasn’t played a game. All four teams in the Intense Conference have yet to compete in a regular season game. In fact, the Titans have the misfortune of playing back to back games without any scouting reports on their opponents. Next week, Cedar Rapids hosts Wyoming for its first game of the year.
The book on the Titans hasn’t changed through two games. They have yet to piece a complete game together. In the home opener Cedar Rapids exploded for 34 points in the second half after scoring just seven in the first. The following week in Chicago, the Titans put up 44 points in the second and third quarters, but just 14 in the first and fourth. They also allowed a mind-blowing 31 in the fourth quarter alone.
After a slow start to his Titans career, Charles McCallum has come on. In his first half in Cedar Rapids, he found the endzone once. Since that time, in six quarters, the quarterback has seven touchdowns.
