I've not seen HSC this season but I hear they are really, really bad; like the worse in the ODAC, maybe in the south region. Go figure.
How did the program sink so low and how do you build it back up ?
You know, programs go through cycles.  Guilford, for example, won the 1973 NAIA championship (when it really meant something, BTW) and continued to be a national player through the 1980s.  By 1999, after a tough 8 years in the ODAC, we fell to 3-22.  Another coach for four years until Palombo came in 2003 and by 2006-10 a regular NCAA participant and in the Final Four twice.  You do have to recruit good, coachable team players and help them develop, but consistency is key.  I hope HSC bounces back ... the ODAC is a better conference when HSC is in the mix.

I've seen what they are doing, but as you said... doesn't mean much. Not sure how many players are still around from their scholarship days. By the time Pfeiffer has any standing, most if not all will be gone. Nice to see them playing well, but sadly they are in no-man's land right now.
I also noticed the scores, but chalked it up to them being in transition and still having D2 players on the roster.  No matter, it must be fun to watch!

rmc1982, did you delete your post about H-SC basketball out of pity?  It was not inaccurate.
I read it last night.  I've only seen HSC twice this year at the tournament at Guilford, where they split 1-1 by losing to Huntingdon and beating Concordia (TX).  Traditionally, the ODAC has definitely been more accustomed to HSC being competitive every time on the court, but especially against RMC.

Roanoke loses at home to Guilford tonight 77-65. The game was close until around the 6 minute mark in the first half when Guilford went on a big run to end the first half. Roanoke just got dominated at every position tonight, hopefully they can turn it around when they play at Bridgewater  :o on Saturday.
I watched online tonight ... decided against making a two-hour drive to Salem from Greensboro with roads still iffy.  Guilford played well tonight ... had not seen RC this season, but they seemed a little out of synch.  It was, in my opinion, a must win for the Quakers to stay in the race for a top four ODAC spot.  Nine games to go, but stacked at the top with two 7-0 teams and a 6-1.  One 7-0 team will emerge on Saturday as E&H/RMC square off.  Interesting weekend coming up!

Quakers played well last night and got to .500 overall and one game up in the ODAC.  Hopefully, they can finish strong down the stretch.

Overlooking the Wasps may be a mistake this year.
The Wasps are good ... simple as that.  With that said, however, for whatever reason, GC has not jelled this year.  Honestly though, even if Guilford had played better last night, E&H was the superior team in this game.  Probably obvious, but I'm dismayed at the 5-7 (1-2) start by the Quakers.  I sure hope the second half of the season will be better, but congratulations to the Wasps on a well-played game.

Am I reading the wrong thing or does Hampden Sydney really have nearly 30 players on thier team?
Not sure what you read, but I bet many ODAC programs have 25 or more.   That doesn't mean they all dress for games and some may only see action in practice or a JV team.  I think Guilford, for example, lists 25 or 26.

Dreadful shooting night for VWU vs Averett -- 7 of 27 on 3 pointers, 11 of 32 on 2s, 16 of 26 free throws and lose 63-59. The Marlins controlled the boards 51-32 (23 offensive boards) but missed countless put backs. In spite of that they were close to coming back late in the game. So Averett is now 5-0 vs the ODAC. They are a good team and played well against a tough VWU defense. If the Marlins shoot better they probably win.

GC beats Methodist and W&L beats William Peace in non-conference games. In the battle of the RCs, Roanoke beats Randolph. Earlier in the week SU lost at home to Washington College and E&H beat EMU.
This is why VW is not yet in the Top 25.

Quakers improve to 4-3 with a 79-62 win over Methodist (now 4-2).  GC led 40-26 at the half, but MU cut it to 5 at 52-47.  Inexplicably, MU coach David Smith allowed the Quakers to go on a 19-0 run without calling one of his 6 available timeouts.  At 71-47, it was over.  Four Quakers in double figures:  Thompson 18, Curry 16, Long 16 and Gregory 12.  GC shot 33/59, 6/13 threes and 7/10 FTs and MU 22/55, 5/20 threes and 13/16 FTs.  GC eked out a 31-30 rebounding edge over the Monarchs.

The DIII nation is watching how Mount Union handles this.  Personally, and I know I am old school, he should never have started the last two weeks.  Life before football.  Most people don't grow up unless there are consequences for their actions ... and inactions, as the case may be.

I agree 100%. I think more Mount fans agree with this than will admit it as well.

BTW - from a pure football stance. IF Fulford was benched against WL and Poorman had played. Then Poorman would have had a playoff start and recent meaningful snaps. Plus (No Offense to WL) I think Mount still beats WL with Poorman (they could have done the right thing AND prepared the back-up at same time). Fast forward - IF Fulford is gone (and I think he will be) then Poorman gets the start and has not taken a meaningful snap since...what October of last year?
desertraider, I agree that Mount Union probably tops W&L with their back-up quarterback in the first round (we ODAC fans realistically know where we stand on the national stage).  As you correctly stated, Poorman would have gotten some snaps earlier in the playoffs.  If he goes in now (and he should, in my opinion), he will be facing heightened competition during his learning curve.  A potential football win is not worth UMU's academic reputation ...  and that reputation has taken a hit the last few weeks.

Did you see HSC play over the weekend ? If so, tell me they are not as bad as the results indicate they might be.

Good luck to your Quakers. Sounds like they are off and running.

Hopefully the ODAC winner will have a successful run deep into the tourney this year.
Hey, tfa2.  Yes, I did see the Tigers twice:  a 20-point loss to Huntingdon and a 3-point win over Concordia (TX).  I also know HSC lost an earlier game to Averett, 80-66.  The Tigers are young ... many times I saw HSC with 3 first year players on the court, which led me to believe the coach is playing more for the future than this season, but he knows his personnel and I don't.  Although the Tigers have some height, I think they will be outrebounded and lose the inside game to really physical teams.  I think 12-15 wins is a nice goal for the youthful Tigers and they will mature in the second half of the season ... even at the DIII level, it is a big jump from HS to college.

The 2-1 Guilford Quakers welcome the 1-1 Averett Cougars to Ragan-Brown tonight.  AU beat HSC 80-66 last week and got thumped by Concordia TX 91-68 on Sunday.

Congratulations to HC Caleb Kimbrough and the Huntingdon Hawks on their 2-1 start, which matches last season's win total.  I got a chance to watch the Hawks play twice in Greensboro where they soundly beat Hampden-Sydney 80-60 and were slightly outmanned by Guilford 90-63.  Things are looking up in Montgomery.
