I'm likely to be there Hasa. No promises yet if my wife decides we need to go on a motorhome trip over Labor Day, but at this point anywhere we were likely to go is probably booked.
jknezek, look forward to meeting you.  Hope you'll be able to attend.

My friend, and former Guilford football letterman, Cliff and I WILL be in Montgomery on September 2nd.  If any Huntingdon fans or DIII enthusiasts in Alabama will be at the game, let me know.  It's always great to put a face and a personality with fellow d3football posters.  Go Quakers!

What are you talking about ? HSC scrimmaged Ferrum yesterday ?

He said joint practice, not scrimmage.

I really like that idea.  NFL teams do it, but I've never heard of college teams doing it. Breaks the monotony of all day every day football with the same group of guys. Had to be refreshing to see other guys in a practice setting that wasn't a scrimmage or game. Kudos to whoever set that up.
Speaking of NFL teams, the Panthers had their second joint practice with the Titans yesterday ... and I think we play them in preseason tomorrow.

I admit GC has a very difficult schedule this season for the month of September; however having 4 of the 6 odac games at home is a real bonus and could go along way to determining the conference championship; greatly increases GC's opportunity to walk away with the trophy. Good luck to your guys this year.
Yeah, tfa2, thanks.  I was a bit disappointed when I saw 4 home, 6 away and no home game until October in 2017, but ... as you note ... any coach would take a 4 to 2 home slate in conference.  I saw where GC was tabbed 6th in preseason ... I suppose a lot of that is based on the unexpected collapse at the end of 2016.  I personally think we'll have a winning record this season and may at least have an impact on who wins the ODAC.  I would love to win it, but will settle for spoiler at this point.

Well I didn't see that coming. But I usually have a blind spot for E&H...

E&H might be a tough one the next two years. Looking at their roster, they have a good amount of production returning and not many seniors.

Heard a couple days back the MC/E&H series is going on hiatus again after this year and MC is returning back to Centre next fall. I wish they could find a way to have E&H and Centre both on the schedule since they are the longest running series Maryville has. Oh well.
I'm hoping with Ferrum jumping ship to the ODAC next year, MC drops that series and picks up another ODAC team. Guilford maybe? Ferrum will take the place of either Jacksonville or Davidson next year, potentially leaving another D3 slot open for hasa's boys. Hasa, any idea on future schedules for Guilford?
Hey, Scots13.  I'm pretty sure Methodist will remain on the schedule every year ... usually competitive and one of the least expensive travel games for both schools.  Greensboro may return at some point, but I suspect it will be 4 years or more.  I've heard Huntingdon is home and home for at least 2 years, so I think you'll see the Hawks in Greensboro in 2018.  I think I heard Davidson may be a multi-year deal ... and it's really close (85 miles) also, but it wouldn't surprise me if both games were in Davidson, NC.  I strongly suspect Jacksonville may be a one year deal ... in fact, NNA was originally on the schedule this season.  I believe Guilford wants at least a 9 game DIII schedule ... and certainly five home games.  Since Guilford has a 4 home, 2 away ODAC schedule this year, I really think Ferrum will be a home ODAC game for the Quakers in 2018.  With Methodist and Huntingdon ooc at home in 2018, that will be five home games.  Don't know if Maryville would be in the ooc mix ... I would like it ... the two schools have played before.  Don't be surprised if Guilford plays Brevard from time to time.  And as much as it doesn't add a lot of variety, Averett is the second closest DIII travel option after Greensboro College.

Took a walking tour of Wabash College as I passed by Crawfordsville, IN on I-74 yesterday.  Great DIII baseball, soccer and football facilities.  Saw the gym, but didn't go inside.  Of note, the Little Giants have a Malcolm X Institute.  Drove by Earlham on I-70, but just felt too pressed for time to stop.  Earlier on my trip, I toured DI Arizona, DIII Willamette, DI Gonzaga, DI Montana and DI Montana State.  By the way, skates, skateboards, pets and Grizzlies are not allowed in the MSU bookstore.

Guilford has six road games this fall:  to Montgomery, AL; to Fayetteville, NC; to Davidson, NC; to Jacksonville, FL; to Lexington, VA and to Bridgewater, VA ... so much more than normal.

Took a walking tour of Willamette University in Salem, OR today and drove a few blocks south to 890 Mission to view McCulloch Stadium, football home of the Bearcats.  Marquee says they host Rhodes Sept. 2 ... long trip for the Lynx.

I also have little idea what to expect from Guilford.  If Bell is healthy and the QB matured last season, the Quakers will be much better than last season's completely unexpected 4-6.  With a 4-0 start in 2016, I would have bet the farm we wouldn't finish 0-6!  The HSC monsoon game broke the momentum and the SU and BC games broke their backs.  After BC, the last two games appeared to be lackluster efforts mailed in to finish the season.  Not sure what to expect on the road versus ranked Huntingdon, DI non-scholarship Davidson and Jacksonville, but I bet GC will be in the mix versus Methodist and the ODAC.

  They could always hit up Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin estate at Spring Green, and they could probably pass it off as educational. Of course I have no idea if it's anywhere near Platteville, like DC or Appomattox are to HSC.

I've been to Taliesin. I'm thinking not many college kids would really care. And D.C. isn't exactly around the corner from HSC, but I was just having fun. I mean, who doesn't enjoy a good cheese curd? And beer boiled brats. But yeah, it's an awkward game that definitely was a match made by necessity.

Poutine is one of my favorite non-American/non-ethnic foods. Fries, brown gravy, and cheese curds. Not to shabby.  A cheese curd by itself is like a warm beer. If you need one, it's there.


As far as the Guilford conversation, I think it started off as "Wow. Great idea. Good chance for a quality OOC win." to "Eh. At least our schedule is stronger." Don't fool yourself though. I'll be pulling for the Quakers. Hoping they can rebound this year.

HSC scheduling UWP wasn't a bad move IMO. Never would have thought HSC would take a downturn like last year and what this year apparently looks like. If they had a crystal ball I think they try to get Ferrum again instead of UWP, though.
Starting in 2018, they will have the Panthers every year.

you're funny; one of our assistant coaches knows the folks at UWP, knew both schools needed games, worked it out.
not saying we will not regret, but at least we got 10 games !!!
That was a funny "reenactment" ... enjoyed reading it.  Regarding GC at Huntingdon:  We needed 4 OOC games ... notice we do not have a home game until October ... and former Quaker basketball greats Caleb Kimbrough and Ben Strong coach the Hawks.  Made a lot of sense to me.  When you talk to Coach Rusiewicz and his assistants, they know the weak OOC hurt the Quakers in 2015.

The ODAC gets no love in the pre-season D3football.com top 25. I'm neither surprised nor think that the ODAC is being underestimated. RMC has a ton to replace. W&L has a ton to replace off a team that under-performed. Guilford is coming off a bad season. The shine is off H-SC. This year will certainly be interesting.
The ODAC gets no love in the Top 50 ... there are 26 more teams that got votes!  lol  I agree, we have to prove we belong again ... lots of question marks throughout the league.

Congratulatons to former Guilford '10 All-American and National DIII POY Tyler Sanborn on being named HC at Ferrum.  After several years of professional basketball, Tyler has served as an Assistant at Hampden-Sydney.  Kudos!
