Good, I hope to meet you and your "rowdy" friends. Any of those rowdy friends play in 1974-77 ?
Yes, Cliff Hunsucker played in that era.  His '74 Guilford team went 6-3-2 with a tie (got trophy with some tiebreaker rules) against William Penn College in the short-lived Poultry Bowl and his '75 team went 8-2.

I looked at making the trip to HSC but I felt like if I traveled back-to-back weeks, then had Selection Sunday, then basketball overlapping with playoffs that I might run myself too far down. I have to protect my sanity a bit, too.

If it had been at Guilford, I would have been more inclined, because that's a stadium I haven't seen a game in yet.
I certainly understand.  In the last month, I have been to Savannah, Dallas, Cleveland and Monterrey, Mexico!  I knew the GC at HSC game would be on your radar, but also knew there were other games on a regional and national level.  I wish the game was at GC for a variety of reasons!  lol  I do hope you get a chance to visit Guilford for a game ... as I'm positive you're aware, the Quakers host your alma mater this weekend.  Guilford has many players that are Juniors this fall, so I do hope you can see Matt Pawlowski, Adam Smith, Tyler Hunt and others play before they finish their eligibility in 2015.

You planning to travel to HSC on the 8th ?

CUACARD59

I agree with you, the 2013 CUA team was better than the 3-4 odac record. In fact I thought they might have been the 3rd best team in the odac, bottom line, their record does not reflect that. Good luck to your Cards for the remainder of the year, I've got a feeling we'll see a much improved CUA team in 2015.
Yes, I plan to be there.  Hopefully, with a couple of my "rowdy" friends, some of whom played for the Quakes.  I've been on HSC's campus before, but I've never attended a game there.  I hope GC has a better outing than 2013 - the Tigers are always tough!

I think Guilford will win, but 45 is a stretch.  It's Homecoming at GC this weekend and I know Coach Rusiewicz does not want a repeat of last year's letdown at CUA.

I always hated the term letdown and I have always felt it gets unfairly thrown around at CUA whenever we get a quality win. That somehow Catholic didn't win the game, rather the other team didn't play well and therefore lost it themselves. As if to imply that Catholic didn't play a quality game against a quality opponent and flat out beat them. 

Now I'm sure you merely meant it as Guilford was 4-1 in the ODAC prior to the game and the loss all but ended their chances of winning the title, thus making it a letdown. In fact all games you plan to win and don't are "letdowns" of some form. I just wanted to stick up for the 2013 Cards! Still think we were a much better team than our 3-4 record would indicate and those losses to E&H and W&L will haunt me forever. Hope that doesn't sound too bitter! haha
You make a good point, CUACARD59.  It wasn't intended to be a dig at the Cards.  I do know Guilford was 4-0 in the ODAC going into the HSC game and got a royal smackdown.  The Catholic game, at least from GC's perspective, was a game I think they reasonably thought they would win.  It was certainly a disappointing loss for the Quakers, but almost certainly an equally inspired effort by the Cardinals.  I've been around long enough to never take an opponent for granted and I'm sure Guilford's team won't either this weekend.  I hope to make it to CUA for the game next season.  +1 for you

FYI Guilford by 45 or more over Catholic this week. 

I'll take that bet

Final Guilford 28 at RMC 6

Former Guilford letterman Cliff Hunsucker and I drove to Ashland yesterday to watch the Quakers (6-1, 3-1) play RMC (3-4, 1-3) at their homecomng ... what a beautiful Day Field and an equally gorgeous day.  When we got on the shuttle at the elementary school just north of the college on Henry St., we recognized another former Guilford player, Mike Minor, who lives in the Chester area.  We had a great time watching the game and catching up.

As for the game, it was, in my opinion, unnecessarily close in the first half.  RMC is a solid team with good athletes, but they're a bit one-dimensional on offense.  Guilford moved the ball at will, but dropped two potential TD passes while in the red zone and then missed what are usually two chip shot (35-39 yard) FGs and ended up with zero points on both possessions.  In the kicker's defense, the US flag was at a 90 degree angle to the pole, so there was some wind.  RMC took the early 6-0 lead, but GC blocked the extra point.  In the 2nd quarter, the Quakers scored and took a 7-6 lead to the locker room.

In the 3rd Quarter, in what I believe was the pivotal series in the game, GC had a 3rd and 1 at their own 38.  A QB sneak gained about a half yard, so the Quakers were facing a 4th and 1 at their own 38 nursing a 1-point lead.  Most coaches would punt, but GC chose to go for it.  The Yellow Jackets stacked the box with 8 defenders and RB Josh Schow took the hand-off left of Center.  When he broke through the line, no one could catch him as he sprinted 62 yards for the TD and a 14-6 Guilford lead.  I know that TD energized the Guilford sideline and had to have demoralized the RMC squad.  After that, the Quakers scored two more TDs and snuffed three RMC drives with INTs.

Pedro Arruza and his staff didn't help matters by getting two 15-yard penalties while the Quakers were on offense.  One was when he protested a horse-collar penalty on an RMC defender when GC was in the red zone.  I'm not sure what the other one was, but it may have been related as Pedro came to the middle of the field to confront the official.  I know RMC was upset, but the play was on the GC sideline and looked like a pretty obvious call.

RMC has a good team, but Guilford was better on this day.   I hope the Yellow Jackets can finish strong ... so far I can sense their season is not meeting their preseason expectations.  Great facilites and beautiful campus.  Nice.

Quakers are coming to the party !  Get ready HSC !
Please, not a wise post for a team that's lost 14 in a row to the Tigers.  First, take our preparations for CUA seriously, then focus on giving both CUA and HSC our best shots.
yes your right but CUA is dismal this year. Don't think HSC starting offense played in 2nd half vs CUA . Quakers should roll easily. Don't kid yourself Quakers are looking ahead to Nov 8. HSC does have a tough one against BW. E&H still in hunt too . Quakers & HSC control their own destiny. If HSC wins the next 2 they will be ODAC champs. Quakers have to win all 3 remaining.
GC should not be looking ahead to Nov. 8, especially since CUA upset the Quakers in DC last year.  Coach Rusiewicz and his staff will not let that happen.  Guilford knows they have to win out ... that's why overlooking Catholic would be a huge mistake.  I just don't want to see posts that end up on HSC's bulletin board ... they have in the past and they've come back to bite the Quakers.  As I mentioned earlier, Guilford has not topped the Tigers since 1999, so not a lot of room for verbal bravado ... prove what you can do on the field, one game at a time.

Thank you, narch, for looking up the actual numbers.  +1  You are the best non-QB poster in d3 who actually looks up the stats.

I do concede opening with Greensboro at home in 2014 is not the same as opening at Wabash, but MU and CNU appear to fairly evenly matched as evidenced by their classic OT game.   And CCA ... I'm confident several QB/WR tandems could score big stats against the Bears.

With all this said, the proof is on the field head-to-head ... and the sad truth is HSC has beaten my alma mater 14 years in a row.  HSC is the better team until someone else proves they can match up and play.
I think it's laughable that someone must have taken offense to this.  I don't think I could have been more fair and balanced.  Nance is great ... I've seen him play, but is he the best?  Others with a broader knowledge of D3 than me seem to think not.

Someone dinged you for that? That's hilarious. I think discussions about Nance over the last 18+ months have driven more negatives for me than anything else. Amusing how protective people get. And I really haven't seen anyone say anything but good things, but for some people there simply aren't enough platitudes you can give him...

Either way, here's a +K for you Hasa...
Thanks, jknezek.  It was either this message or the one where I thanked hoopstermom for parking advice at RMC.  lol

Oh, well.... If it was the parking advice I'm taking my +k back. That deserved the ding!    ;D
Thanks, you made me laugh.  lol

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.

My one scream about Havelock. 84 laid on White Oak. 70 in the 1st half. We laid wood for about 64 on West Craven in 74 but 64 is all that I have been part of. Good going GC-Q for you NOVA
Thanks, abnrgr.  Hope the Quakes keep their focus for last four games!  With the great numbers narch's MU is putting up, the Guilford win over the Monarchs is looking better and better.

I see Saturday, Oct. 25, is Homecoming at RMC for the Guilford game.  I've been on the campus twice before and know where Day Field is, but I've never been to a Randolph-Macon football game.  Any advice from Macon fans on the best (any) places to park?  Thanks.

PS  I've been to Guilford's first six games ... and hope to make it to all ten this season.

I expect there will be parking on the grass across from the softball field (#75 on the map link below) - up W. Patrick Street.  The lots closest to the football field (#63) are reserved, Lot J is for tailgating, and Lot F is for handicapped.  You can try you luck parallel parking along Henry or N. Center Street or any of the streets or smaller lots but they fill up quickly.  You could also probably park at the elementary school which is a little ways North up Henry Street (past Smith Street).

Thank you, hoopstermom.  I appreciate the advice.  If you are at the game Saturday, walk by the Guilford stands and yell "nova".  lol
