I think the right coach could be very successful at Greensboro. They haven't recruited very well. They never called my son and he went to HS 15 minutes away at a HS with lots of potential D3 talent. My son was a 2 year starter at HSC on 2 ODAC championship teams. The Greensboro campus is beautiful, it's right beside UNCG, and it's in downtown Greensboro. It also has a reputation as offering a quality education. The fact that their stadium is at a local high school hurts but several USA south programs have or had really bad facilities. NCW plays at a local HS, Methodist plays at a below average college facility and until last year Averett played at the worst facility I'd ever seen. NCW and Averett won USA South championships playing at their facilities and MU went 8-2 a few years a go.
Until recently Guilford college was IMO in the same shoes as Greensboro (the schools are 10 minutes apart). But Guilford hired a coach that is as meticulous in recruiting as he is in coaching. Now they dominate local recruiting. Academically I don't see much difference in the 2 schools and it's not like the Quakers can point to a long tradition of excellence in football and their facilities are - now that Catholic left - the worst in the ODAC. Yet according to HASA GC has beat Greensboro 198-13 in the last 3 years! The Greensboro coach is going into his second year. Time will tell but there's nothing stoping Greensboro from being a winner.
I completely disagree on the highlighted point.
You're correct, Guilford's football facilities are probably last in the ODAC. They are light years ahead of where they were, but still good by DIII standards. That being said, however, saying Guilford's football facilities are the worst in the ODAC is kind of like saying Cornell is the worst school in the Ivy League. We'll get there.
