The Baltimore Ravens' John Urschels is attending MIT pursuing a Phd.  While there this semester he worked out with the MIT football team. Here's what he said ....I didnít know what to expect. But what I found was that the team at MIT is no joke. It is a football team ó in some ways, more of a football team than any Iíd ever seen. These guys love football. They are playing the game because they want to. No one is making them come to practice, no one is checking up on them. They know as well as anyone about head injuries; they know that football is dangerous; they know the feeling of exhaustion and pain. They still play. They donít do it for money, and they donít do it for status. The average size of their crowds is fewer than 1,000. On campus, no one gives them a second look. (The guys who won the Putnam Competition ó a national math contest ó three years in a row are the ones who get treated like star quarterbacks.) But they show up every day and work hard because itís their choice ó because they love to play...

I think this is very indicative of all of D3. To see the full article http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/john-urschel-s-excellent-mit-offseason-142359101.html
Some of you may remember MIT had an undefeated regular season in 2014.

Greensboro only shows a 9-game schedule.  Is that it or are they still trying to find a game for one of the two open dates on 10-Sept and 24-Sept?  I think they played Bridgewater (VA) the 2nd week in 2015, but the Eagles have Thomas More lined up for 2016.
Greensboro added NNA on September 10 ... so a 10-game schedule.

HSC 6-1
W&L 6-1
RMC 5-2
E&H 5-2
BC 4-3
GC 4-3
SU 2-5
CAU 1-6

Ok JK, tear this apart. Actually I have no idea but this could be a fun conversation to include Hasa and TigerFan

Well the easiest way to tear it apart is to send you back to remedial math!  ;D For every game a team wins against a conference rival, there is one winner and one loser. So overall, the whole conference has to go .500. You've set up a scenario where conference teams go 33-23 against each other. Has to be 28-28. You need to find 5 more losses and 5 fewer wins.
I've been in a meeting all day, so jknezek beat me to it.  lol  Both sides must add up to 28.

It's good to see the ODAC teams stepping up. W&L has stepped up big time this year. As has Bridgewater with Gettysburg and Thomas More (and Apprentice, but I'll take the other two over the soft boiled eggs they've played in the past). H-SC adding UWP is nice but at least they hold on to CNU this year. I think UWP is also a function of the ODAC staring down the 7 team problem in 2017. WIAC schools have the same issue. E&H has Brevard and M'Ville this year. Brevard is transitioning to DIII so might be interesting, but they went 0-11 last year in NAIA so they may really suck.

Nice to see Shenandoah stepping up in 2017 with Hobart. This year has nothing to write home about. R-MC back tracked, losing JHU and picking up Dickinson, who was cut out of their traditional game against Hobart on the heels of a long losing streak. And of course Guilford has what it usually has. Marshmallow fluff.

Catholic is leaving, so no point in mentioning them for the future, but this year they've only landed two OOC games. Putrid McDaniel and usually not so good Coast Guard.
Brevard has actually played in the NCAA DII South Atlantic Conference (Catawba, Mars Hill, Lenoir-Rhyne, Carson-Newman, Wingate), but the assertion they suck probably still holds true.

Disappointed in Guilford with the same old, same old, but I see that changing on one game in 2017.  For now, I think we are locked in with intracity Greensboro and intrastate Methodist because we've played each school every year since they started football.

With all the ODAC championships in the books for the year I'm just going to give a huge round of applause to my Generals. For the men, W&L finished first in Football, Soccer, Cross Country, Swimming, Golf, Lacrosse, and Tennis. The men finished second in Indoor Track and Field, third in outdoor track, 3rd or 4th in baseball, and the only stinker, toward the bottom of basketball.

The women did just as well. Championships in Cross Country, Field Hockey, Lacrosse, Swimming, Soccer, and Tennis. Second in Golf and Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field. Third in Volleyball and Riding, and tied for third in Basketball. 

Results won't officially post for a while, but I'm pretty sure the men will take home their 3rd of the last 4 President's Cups, 16th overall, the women their 12th straight President's Cup, 15th overall, and the school's 14th straight combined Cup, 19th overall.

A very dominant athletic year.
Definitely a good year for the Generals.  Many things of which to be proud.

Dave McHugh broke the news on Twitter - Clay Nunley going to Roanoke.
Kind of unusual to change Head Coaching jobs in the same conference, but I have to think Roanoke is a step up in pay and ability to recruit ... although I have to say Coach Nunley did a heck of a job at Randolph.  The recruiting at Randolph will get better when the college upgrades its gym.

  Yowza! That's a pretty extreme upgrade.
You're right ... it will be interesting to see the score!  I think the only saving grace may be it's a home game for the Eagles.

How many guys does he carry on the team ? We are limited to around 115 due to locker room space which I personally feel is too many. give me 3 deep at each position plus the kickers and lets go to work.
I know 140 ish were at practice when camp opened in August 2015.  You lose a few, of course, to attrition and injuries, but I imagine there were 120 dressed for many home games ... in the program, you see a lot of numbers duplicated between Offense and Defense.  By the way, I just counted the players on the 2015 roster ... 122 ... about twice the roster in years past.

The most impressive thing for GC is not the number coming in or how they are announced when they do. It's that GC graduated 18.  Teams win with juniors and seniors.

Just in case anyone wants to know - players report for fall practice in exactly 100 days!
Could not agree more ... 18 is a great number for GC ... I remember just a few years ago when it might have been 8!  These seniors will definitely be missed and have made a big impact on the program.

Still impressed how GC announces its recruiting class. Well done. This is one area I think HSC needs to improve. Alumni want to know, I get calls all the time asking me about recruiting class and there are no answers. At some point a list of recruits will be shared but includes little more than the name & hs.
Thanks, TFA2.  I think the credit should go squarely with Head Coach Chris Rusiewicz and SID Dave Walters.  I spoke with Coach Rusiewicz at last night's football awards banquet and he said some other commitments are forthcoming this week.  I like it too ... it used to be that I (and other alumni) didn't know who we had until opening day.  Speaking of Coach R, he said Guilford had a waiting list of guys who want to play for the Quakers ... there simply isn't enough room to accommodate all of them!  What a change from the days when Guilford might field a team of 50 to 60.  Along with the whole team, Guilford recognized 18 Seniors last night who've had a huge impact on Quaker football.  Hope we can reload and sustain the progress they made from 0-10 and 2-8 before they arrived to the 28-12 record in their four seasons (5-5, 6-4, 8-2 and 9-1).
