Nice to see the Generals get a win. Wish I could have seen the game, but I was stuck at a wedding. I thought the team might be maturing, and I think they will be competitive with everyone going forward. We will see. At Bridgewater isn't a good omen. Always a bad place for W&L.
Bridgewater is a good team ... not great ... but very solid.  Even at 4-2 (1-2), I will not be surpised if they still go 4-3 in the ODAC.

Going 4-3 in the ODAC?  Who are they playing in the seventh game?   ;)
Well, Bridgewater's seventh conference game is Catholic the last week of the season. Are they not going to play one? The ODAC has 8 football members and a seven game conference season since Shenandoah joined.
Keep up CMR.  :) This is the third season the now 8-team football ODAC has played 7 conference games.  I see your post was deleted, so you probably realized that on your own.

Guilford played reasonably well yesterday, but could never put the hammer down versus a good BC team.  GC led by two TDs three times at 14-0, 21-7 and 35-21.  BC scored to make it 35-28 and then executed a perfect onside kick for their final drive.  The Quakers held on inside the five and got a stop on fourth and 1 with about 45 seconds to go.  The refs brought out the chains and the gap looked to be about 6 inches.  In reality, the Quakers are in "playoff" mode the rest of the season.  I think the ODAC champ will have only one loss at most.

Depression is only a week long adventure in the football world. Unless you are from Jones COunty.  ;)
not depressed, just realistic - that defense HAS to get better for the monarchs to reach their goals, and jones county is lovely...as long as you're just passing through :)
Well, it also has a Trenton.

Mr. Coleman would be sensitive to using the correct acronym (CUA) for The Catholic University of America since he is an alum of that fine institution and not of Clark Atlanta University (CAU), or University of Central Arkansas (UCA), or Abilene Christian University (ACU), or any other higher education institution that could use the three letters A, C, and U (in any order) for an acronym.
Well, the best place for dyslexic students is still probably IUPUI.  :)

I don't think CAU can pull an upset

Central Arkansas University?
I wondered when someone was going to right that ship.

Officials may not have been very good but they did not give up the 8 sacks and throw the 3 INTs.  Last year the loss to SU was actually a turning point for HSC.  That loss seem to strengthen their resolve to prove what a talented team they had. It will be interesting to see how Quakers respond this weekend against BC (who beat SU last week). That game will most likely eliminate the loser from having a shot at the ODAC championship.   

EH is the big surprise for 2014. Next week they are at HSC. HUGE game on "The Hill".  The winner will be all alone in first place.
I never said the officials were the OL.

GC gives up 47 and you are talking about having a chance?  Really?
Guilford scored with a couple of minutes to go to make it 41-31 ... came up short going for 2 which would have made it a one possession game at 41-33.  Last pick six for SU was run in after time expired, so meaningless.  I usually don't do this, but the officials were not very good today.

HSCTiger,

Trust me, I know Marty Ball is about scoring lots of points regardless of the weather.  I don't recall the 2009 game, but I recall some of the games I played against HSC.  I think sometimes I left the field going "what just happened?"   :)  I think guys like Ricca, Singh, and Clemmons gave me nightmares...it's my way of saying they were good players in a good system.  In fact, I think sometimes HSC has an underrated defense because the offenses are usually so good.  I recall the HSC/GC game last year.  I went to the game thinking, "wow, this might be a fun game to watch this year", only to quickly have my hopes dashed.  I think the HSC defense did a great job last year of flying around and putting pressure of Pawlowski and the rest of the offense.  It was certainly the best defensive effort I saw all year against GC.
I was at the 2009 washout and, I think, HSC put up 31 against a GC team on the decline.  It was raining so hard, I could not see the coin toss at the middle of the field.  Awful.  Last year, it was a beautiful day and the Tigers put up 52 against a team on the rise.  Again, perhaps more awful because I expected more than I did in 2009.  Hope springs eternal, but after 14 years, you have to be a bit philosophical.

Hasa,

That's true, it was certainly worth the five dollars I paid to get in the game...and then some.  I distinctly remember the offensive line coach, who was a teammate of mine, "imparting wisdom" on the young men after they had come off the field.  I remember being on the receiving end of more than one of those sessions.... :)
GC2005, come by and say hello prior to kickoff or during halftime on Oct. 18 or Nov. 1 ... I'm usually at the Quaker Club corner of the Pepsi Fan Zone ... if not, most folks in the area know who I am or where to find me.  If it's similar to some of the coaches I've had in my life, the folks in the back row could hear the "wisdom" as well as the players on the sideline.  lol

Tigerfan,

You're exactly right about HSC getting out in front early...I'm guessing they failed to do so in 2012.  W&L doesn't have the ability to play from behind, it's just the way their offense is built. 

ODACFan,

You're exactly right about not being able to predict what is going to happen from one week to the next.  Shenandoah concerns me, as I think they are ever improving.  I've also heard good things about Coach Yoder.  One game that really interests me this week is the E&H @ Bridgewater game.  I haven't heard much about Bridgewater this year, but everyone say E&H is improved from last year.  That actually scares me because E&H put the bully stomp on GC last year for 2 and 1/2 quarters...so I could tell the ability was there last year.
Ah, 2 1/2 quarters were truly ugly, but all Guilford fans will always remember the last 21 minutes!  Greatest come from behind win in my memory for the Quakers ... and that goes back to the fall of 1970.

Congrats on the great start to the season. I'm a little taken back by the # of tackles credited to one of your DB's. Other than he is a very good player, does that mean the front seven is having problems stopping the run ?

Who plays E&H this week ? The new coach out there has turned things around pretty damn quick. Shocked they beat RMC. Either E&H has really improved or RMC is struggling right now, maybe both.

JK

This coming weekend is no time for your Gennies to get their act together. Would greatly appreciate it if they were to wait another week !!! You said they were not very good but I'm not buying that until we get out of Lexington alive. Tigers better not take them for granted, if they do, their season could be ruined. Is BC and E&H for real ? I get the fact that GC is the real deal (although I wasn't buying into that until this past Saturday).
Thanks, tfa.  A bit of a statistical oddity, but GC has put up 52 in each of their three home games.  I think the 22 tackes and an interception by Stevenson can be attributed to two factors:  1) He is very good and is a preseason All-America pick 2) our front seven are a bit weak (so far) against the run especially against a team such as W&L ... so more guys are getting through to the secondary.  It's a fun time and each Saturday can't come soon enough this season.

Hello all, I am new to the board but I have been following the posts for years.  I look forward to talking football with you all.  Jknezek, I was at the W&L/Gc game yesterday and I did see a few good things from your Gennies.  They looked pretty young on paper so there are some guys racking up good experience on the field.  I will say I was impressed by the way the QB and the rest of the backfield excuted the option.  They take care of the ball and appear to try and get north/south quickly.  They gave GC's defense problems at times.  With those guys being so young I am willing to bet they will be very formidable in years to come.
I was there also and agree with you.  Welcome to the board.  +1

Thanks, abnrgr.  It is definitely fun for now ... I think Guilford has moved from the "hope to win" to "expect to win" mindset.

It's worth noting that Guilford is now 0.500 in the Chris Rusiewicz Head Coaching era.  After the Quakers were 0-10 in 2010, Rusiewicz has gone 2-8, 5-5, 6-4 and now 4-0 to reach 17-17.
