Guilford had Roanoke on the ropes, but poor FT and 3FG (2 of 12) shooting did in the Quakers.  GC up 34-27 at the half, 46-31 in 2nd and 61-57 in last minute, but 10 of 22 FTs (including missing the front end of two key one and ones) did them in.  Finally, GC did not get off a shot with the ball and 20 seconds to go ... an ignominious end to a 64-62 loss.  Kudos to the Maroons for staying focused and not conceding.  Sigh.

I'm being told that Guilford and Davidson have agreed to a home and home series in the 3rd week of the season in 2017 and 2018, effectively dropping Averett from the schedule in those two years.  ESPN Ticker!  As I suspected, the Greensboro and Methodist series are considered sacrosanct for now, but additional options are being explored to fill the impending Catholic void in 2017.

To add to jknezek's remarks about OOC scheduling for the ODAC, I think the weak (in 2015) OOC threesome of Greensboro, Methodist and Averett contributed to an excellent 9-1 Guilford team being left out of the playoffs in 2015.  Not sure about the 2016 season, but I heard some rumblings about Guilford starting a home and home with a prominent NC-based non-DIII school after Catholic is out of the ODAC and a potential match-up with a prominent midwestern school.  I know the names of the schools, but I don't want to undermine or overstep my bounds by saying until I hear something more concrete.  To me, a more diverse schedule will be welcomed!

Guilford's 60-58 home win over the Generals on Saturday gave Coach Flamini her 200th victory with the Quakers and kept GC in first place in the ODAC with a 16-2, 10-1 record.  Congratulations!

Quakers can't handle prosperity ... letting a late game 59-51 margin over the Generals turn into OT at 62 all ... thankfully, if you're a Guilford fan, they pulled out an eventual 3 point win, 71-68.  W&L has some athletes ... somewhat surprised they are 3-6 in the ODAC and frankly, considering the many close games, that the Quakers are 6-3.

Guilford women are 16-2, 101-1 with a home victory over the Gennies, giving Coach Flamini her 200th win with the Quakers.  Congratulations!

Quakers (10-5, 5-1) jumped out to a 12-0 lead over the SU Hornets (3-12, 0-6) yesterday and then played even the rest of the game for an 81-69 ODAC victory.  Senior Will Freeman added 18 to support a team high 20 by Trever Hyatt.  A couple of big scorers for Shenandoah (Malcolm Clark had 32), but not a lot of firepower from others.

Another swarm of Hornets on Wednesday, Jan. 20 as Lynchburg visits Ragan-Brown at 7 pm.

Just left Crenshaw, easy to see how they have six loses already this year. But glad for this W!

You got that right...
I've seen 9 of 11 Guilford games this season ... easy to see why the Quakers have 5 losses.  I think most of our games this year will be close ... need to cut down on turnovers and hit more free throws!  Playing as many as three first years at times, so they will hopefully mature quickly.

Hasanova, some history I just ran across that you may or may not already know.  Guilford College is presumably directly named for Guilford County, but Guilford County is named for the first Earl of Guilford.  The first Earl of Guilford was the father of Lord North, the PM during the American Revolution, and the step-father of Lord Dartmouth (founder of the missionary school which became Dartmouth College), the Colonial Secretary who gave the order for British troops to attack Lexington and Concord.  So ... you are anti-American, but also the 'daddy' of Ivy League Dartmouth! :o ;D
Thanks, Mr. Ypsi.  I knew the connection to England and the Earl of Guilford, but did not know all ties to Dartmouth.  Quakers are surprising complex.  lol

Happy New Year everyone.  Host Guilford and fellow intracity DIII school Greensboro completed the sweep of visiting Pitt-Greensburg and Dickinson on Wednesday.  Greensboro handily beat the cold-shooting UP-G Bobcats and Guilford, despite playing poorly, hung on to top Dickinson 46-43 when a buzzer-beating 3-point attempt by the Red Devils rattled out.  The Quakers improve to 6-4, 1-0 and the Pride move to 5-4 with their 5th straight win.

Led by Will Freeman's 18 and Carson Long's 15, Guilford (5-4) pulled away from the Pitt-Greensburg Bobcats (6-3) last night, 89-57.  In the first game, the Greensboro Pride rallied to top Dickinson, 92-87.  GCP and GCQ switch opponents tonight with GCP facing UP-G at 5 and The Quakers playing the Dickinson Red Devils at 7 pm.

I need final polls from Crufootball Scots13 and ExTartan!

Thanks

I am in the poll?
Sorry MY BAD!

I need hasanova!

Sorry crufottball. I know you would have gotten me your poll.

So much for "The ODAC gets it done..."! ;D

OMG, I hope the Nova didn't die and he is in mourning! :o
Ralph and others, I have been "off the grid" for a few weeks and didn't realize I have not submitted a final poll.  Too late?  Either way, my apology!

Hasa, any thoughts on how well Guilford can keep it going with Pawlowski's graduation?  Some schools have built enough of a foundation that they keep rolling after a super QB (or super class) graduates (e.g., Franklin), but others sink right back to mediocrity (e.g., Trine and Monmouth).  At least a little regression is probably inevitable, but how firm do you think the foundation at Guilford is?
Some other Guilford fans and I have had the same conversation ... with varying opinions.  Obviously, a great QB is one of the key foundation blocks for a successful program and Guilford will lose Pawlowski (a rare 40 game starter)... and the #2 QB Ferrick, who are both seniors.  The current #3 QB, Miles, is a sophomore and may have 30 snaps in a live game.  It will be interesting to see who emerges next August. 

Even with the loss of Smith and a few other WRs, I think the Receivers are in pretty good shape.  Also look for Sophomore RB/KR De'Eric Bell to be an even bigger part of the offense in 2016/17.

At Kicker, we will lose Tyler Hunt, so I don't know what to expect.  In addition to being steady on FGs and PATs, I think it's fair to say he helped win more than a few games with great booming punts that helped the Quakers win the field position battles.  I personally witnessed 76- and 81-yarders that turned games in our favor.

Winning makes recruiting easier and I have to say Coach Rusiewicz and his staff seem to be a great recruiters and motivators.  I expect there will be a high number of Juniors and Seniors on the field again next year and a steady stream of quality recruits.

Can Guilford repeat a 9-1 season?  Probably not, but I anticipate a winning 2016 season ... I believe the foundation is that strong.

Congratulations to Guilford QB Matt Pawlowski on being named South Region Offensive POY.  I watched him play about 30 times ... he's good ... well deserved!

Very much agreed. He, and one or two others, were the face of that amazing turn around at Guilford. Something to be very much proud of to come in to a program that was so far down and to drag it back up. Congratulations and well deserved!
Thanks.  I just saw the update on the d3football.com home page ... Matt is one of the four semifinalists for the Gagliardi Trophy, so he'll make the trip to Salem for the Awards Ceremony next week.  Nice!

Hasa

Agreed, he is quite the QB. I enjoyed watching him but to be very honest, I'm glad he is done !!!! All good things must come to an end and he did not leave until he helped end HSC domination of GC.
I understand ... that's the problem with college vs the pros ... 4 seasons and it's over!  lol I know Matt and the other Guilford players (and coaches) worked hard to transform the program from 0-10 in 2010 to ever-improving 2-8, 5-5, 6-4, 8-2 and 9-1 seasons.  Number 15 started all 40 games and finished his career 28-12.  Well done!
