W&L opens tonight at home with Averett. Here's hoping it goes better than last year. I do believe this team will be better and these first three games are all home and all winnable. If the Generals get off to a good start it could set the tone. I have no doubt that early close losses in all 3 OOC games last year set the tone especially as injuries mounted.
Good luck, Generals!  Get the ODAC off to a good start tonight!

Alright gentlemen, need to double check the particulars for Saturday.  Cash ($10?) to park and no ticket cost?  Do I have that correct?
That's what it was for the Guilford game at Hampden-Sydney last November 8 - not a bad deal if you have multiple people in a vehicle.  I'm sure the Tigers will have a lot(s) set up for LG fans - usually around the Fleet Center which is down the hill a short distance from the football field.  Hope you have a great time!

The University of Chicago was a charter member of the Big Ten ... not sure how long that affiliation lasted.

Another interesting tidbit. HSC's Kaleidoscope list the 11 starters and the remaining players as "Scrubs". I found that funny for some reason.
Scrubs used to be the term for reserves or back-ups ... I remember it being used when I was in high school.

It looks the score might be is accurate.  :'(. The Kaleidoscope must have been written in the spring of 1920 discussing the 1919 season in which VMI won 3-0.

Hasa I was on the sideline watching a worse beating than 60-6. In 1987 Catawba beat the Quakers 73-14.
Oh, I didn't say it was our worst beating ... I think one year GC and Mars Hill both entered the game 4-0 ... and it was 73-0 MHC.  Ouch!

Sitting in the office with an HSC co-worker who happens to have played at HSC, looking at the list. I got down to the "V" section and thought "well, I don't see a Maryville game on here..." Boom. Then I see where Vandy drummed us 100-3 in 1912. My Tiger buddy sees it, says something along the time of "That sucks for you." I start scrolling again.
Three lines down: VIRGINIA MILITARY 136, HAMPDEN-SYDNEY 0.  (1920)
Timing could not have been better.
A little slice of humble pie all around ...

I don't know the final score, but Guilford played at Maryland during Bear Bryant's days there as HC ... the Terrapin cheerleaders did push-ups and sang the alma mater after each UM score.  Rumor is, by the end of the game, all the GC Quakers knew the UM alma mater by heart!

narch, will you be at the GCQ game in Fayetteville on the 12th?  If so, I'd like the opportunity to say hello again.

Well W&L owns one of those monkey stomps. Centre owns a surprising amount. I guess those games in the early 1900s didn't really match up like institutions very well!
Two I already knew:  the infamous 222-0 Georgia Tech whitewashing of Cumberland and the "modern era" 1968 University of Houston 100-6 win over FBS-foe Tulsa.  I remember reading a quote from the Houston kicker in Sports Illustrated about how much pressure he felt late in the game when he lined up for the 100th point ... not wanting to let his teammates and Cougar fans down.

I hope Wabash wins by 100.

That would be a noteworthy accomplishment!

My argument was and still is that no one should disparage HSC's accomplishments while at the same time their team or program has not accomplished any more. It doesn't matter what I know about the national stage. None of the current LGs or Tigers have advanced past the 2nd round. Fact. You can argue about which program is better. You know more about the programs across the country than I.

I've said I am blinded. I admit it. I'll also concede I know little about about the national stage. That's ok. Is that any different than 99% of the fans on these boards?

Hasa how the heck do you expect me to spell that? :)
T-H-A-T.  One letter at a time.  Besides, I spelled it for you.  :)

It's all good Wally. I'm tend to beat a dead horse. Jk and Hasa I'm sure wished HSC would have changed conferences to the NJAC with CNU for the sole reason of not seeing my rants.  :)
It is very interesting entertainment.  One thing of which I'm pretty sure:  HSC would not be getting a ring in the NJAC this year.

I know, let's have a spelling bee between the NCAC and the ODAC.  Okay, contestant from HSC, your word is "proselytize" and contestant from Wabash, your word  is "hermeneutics."
