South Region football / Re: FB: USA South Athletic Conference
« on: Yesterday at 11:50:48 pm »
USA South tweeted today that there is a big announcement coming Friday. Anybody got any ideas what it might be?
Confidence interval

45%   Which school is adding football?
40%   Which school has sought membership in the USA South?
5%    The USA South has voted to split in two?
~10%  Something else?
0.000000001%  LSU has hired a football coach from a USA South school to be the new head coach.

Going to guess some scheduling arrangement with the ODAC, maybe even loaning a school to the ODAC for football only.
I think this may be spot on ... USASAC will have 9 and ODAC will have 7 as is ... would solve a lot of scheduling issues if both have eight.

2010, I think. (Let me check with a friend of mine.)

War Hawks, two words is unique among college mascots.
I guess I wasn't paying attention during McMurry's DII years.

As two words (War Hawks), it is unique, but UWW and ULM (University of Louisiana at Monroe) are one word Warhawks, I think.

I've noticed that nearly every school with some form of Indian name has changed to some form of Hawk.
It was the winner over the three choices that we put to the students and alumni.  Circuit Riders, to reflect the Methodist heritage, and one other were considered. The statue of the brave and the Harris Hawk, called Spirit Wind, has been on campus for 30 years.

I did a little research also ... I think the other choice was Bison.  I have to say, though, Circuit Riders would have been unique for sure!

No ODAC football until the 29th!  What will I do?
One thing that you'll need to do is wait until the 30th.  Just heard the game has been moved to Friday night.
Okay, thanks for the update ... I was going to tune in Thursday to get a look at both squads.

Non-conference strength of schedule (based on my ratings, 0 to 1 scale) for each ODAC team:

Team   SoS   
Bridgewater   0.794   
Washington and Lee   0.680   
Randolph-Macon   0.495   
Hampden-Sydney   0.462   
Emory and Henry   0.449   
Guilford   0.250   
Catholic   0.242   
Shenandoah   0.187   

Bridgwater (excluding the NNA game) and W&L had the toughest schedules (thanks to TMC & JHU, respectively). RMC, HSC, and E&H played average competition, and the other three pretty much exclusively played cupcakes. It would be hard to argue that Guilford's schedule is demonstrably more difficult than Catholic's.
I don't think anyone disagrees.  We know, for example, that GCQ's OOC schedule is weak on a yearly basis and this year is no exception.

Looking at McMurry's 2Deep last week, they have mostly freshman and sophomores on their starting lineup. I suppose this stems from their transition back and forth from D2.  Should be interesting to see this week how they do against our potent front fours after racking up over 60 points two weeks ago.  Their game last week was canceled.
McMurry had trouble scoring against Southwestern. 14 points came on pick-sixes.
They beat Texas College. Lazindex had McMurry at least 30 point favorites. 'Nuff said.
They were losing to Langston when the game was called.

The entire offensive line transferred when the O-line coach did not return.

I still remember many of the scores from the pre-Mumme era. Ouch!
I see McMurry has a nickname (mascot) now ... when did that happen?  Let me down easy if it was five years ago.  lol

CUA is 3-0 ? My bet is your Quakers will have few problems coming away with a victory. Hope to see you at HSC on the 8th. Homecoming for the Tigers so we should have a nice crowd on campus, hopefully they will get out of the tailgates and make it to the stadium. Safe travels !!!
CUA is 3-0, but they beat 1-3 McDaniel 28-21, 1-2 Rochester 27-14 and the 1-3 Coast Guard Academy 37-35.  CUA's opponents' wins came over collective 0-11 Ursinus, Alfred (NY) State and Anna Maria.  To be fair, Guilford's opponents are a collective 3-6 ... Greensboro, Methodist and Averett are all 1-2.

Have never enjoyed an off week as much as I did this past Saturday. Tigers needed a break after the 0-3 ooc schedule start to the season. Now they just need to figure a way to go 1-0 each week going forward.

RMC and GC look to be the class of the odac so far this year. Hard to get a read on W&L but I assume they will make some noise along the way. Not predicting any outcomes, this may truly be a week to weTek progression unlike most seasons we have seen in the past. The fact CNU is 3-0 and AU gave GC a run makes me feel at least hopeful. As always, time will tell all.
I think several teams needed a break last Saturday.  I am concerned about Guilford's game versus Averett ... the Quakers won, but just never dominated as I expected, but the yards and time of possession were fully in Guilford's favor despite the 2-point win.  The 3-0 Quakers face a 3-0 Catholic squad this week, but I believe the Cardinals' foes were, relatively speaking, not as strong as GC's.  I also plan to drive to Farmville on the 8th, so I hope to say hello to Tiger posters.  HSC is resilient and will be up for the game, I'm sure.  Looking forward to the ODAC season starting Thursday night!

I really don't think it's that big of a deal. Playing in Salem was stupid, on both team's part. Why pay to rent the field, have fewer supporters, and lose the campus atmosphere? All so you can play on the same field as the Stagg? Kind of pointless to me. But, I don't think it's a huge deal that Ferrum isn't coming to H-SC. Both games played were neutral site, shading toward the other's campus. Regardless of whether it was meant to be that way or not, that's pretty much what happened and hardly unfair in the end. ODAC teams will have big schedule issues starting next year. Losing Ferrum from that week 3 spot isn't an issue because somehow H-SC got gypped of a home game, it's an issue because filling week 3, and the 4th OOC, is going to be a bear.

I don't often envy the USASAC, but I do envy them their 8 conference games. To me that's perfect for a 10 game schedule. The two OOCs help with SOS and getting ready, and the 8 conference games provide a large amount of stability and ease of scheduling.
My problem with the 8 conference games is that someone may have an off-week in the schedule when they may not want it.

Week 9?  Week10?  Week 11?
The ODAC will be back to where we were before Shenandoah joined.  Each team had a bye week or OOC once conference play started.  If I remember correctly, W&L had their ODAC record in the book after week 10 and had to wait a week to see how they fared in the final standings.  All league positions should be in play from 1-4 pm on week 11!

« on: September 20, 2016, 09:48:42 am »
My ballot:

1.  MHBU
2.  HSU
3.  JHU
4.  TMC
5.  ETBU
6.  Huntingdon
7.  Guilford
8.  Muhlenberg
9.  RMC

There are about four other teams on by radar.  Yes, Guilford should have dominated Averett more.  Unsure about La College so far.  ETBU is still Texas football.  I moved Huntingdon up a tad.  Can't wait for conference play.
10.  Centre

Looks as though the USASAC is poised to take the ODAC today.  If the scores hold up, it's 3-1 with Guilford at Averett still to go at 6.

Final: R-MC 34, Methodist 16. Is that the "1" in your 3-1? Never mind. I see that it is. Wasn't sure if Ferrum was USAASC. Hope GC can make it 3-2.h
Yes, it was.  As you say, Ferrum is USASAC.  Quakers did raise it to 2 out of 5 versus the USASAC, but the ODAC was a disappointing 3-5 on the day with CUA winning and BC and W&L losing.  Overall, a rather lackluster 14-10 OOC.  Oh well, on to conference play!
