I was under the impression Vann walked on at ECU as a punter. I guess that's not the case.

I hope the MC/MU game keeps being the last game of the year and if so, we need a trophy for the game. Any thoughts?
i think that was the intention, but apparently he did not make the team at ecu or decided not to play...

i think the trophy could be a holographic barn burning...8 of the last 10 games decided by 1 score, with one of those games that wasn't (last year) being very much in question under 4 minutes and one of those games (2009) going 4 ot's...those classify as barn burners, to me
If Methodist hadn't changed its name to University, you could award the MC Hammer as a trophy ... I envision a Thor-esque hammer nailing the game on the last play with a thunderbolt ... either that or a shadow box with a framed CD with an endless remix of "Can't Touch This ..." and the IRS logo.  It could happen.  :)
+1.... For obvious reasons.
Thanks.  The pen keyboard is mightier than the sword bored.

I went to Emory and Henry to see the MC Scots dismantle the team picked last in the ODAC and watched a close game instead. Either the Wasps are better than they are supposed to be, or....

Wasps had one player MC could not shut down and he scored 28.  They had a big guy in the middle who was not kind to Jaumanee Byrd, who fouled out having not done much.  Without Tanner Torres or Spencer Shoffner, I would have had to take a lot of crap from my friend at Emory.  Oscar did well on the boards.

It is early yet.
E&H surprised some teams at the end of the season last year ... not unexpected to see more progress.

Best reason I can come up with is weather; too damn cold at both of those places !!!!!
The only reason I felt compelled to post a response is because your time stamp is my exact birthday.  lol

HA! Beat you here by 12 days.    ;D
My parents didn't consult me on the day, so I'm sort of forced to deal with it.  lol

Guilford (3-0) over the Pride (1-1) at Greensboro College tonight, 76-65.  GCQ led by 20 in the second half, but GCP did pull within 8 in the last few minutes.  The Quakers had four players in double figures led by Matt McCarthy's 20.  Greensboro had two players in double figures led by Devan Gregory's 27.  I think the key was Guilford's 10 of 22 three-point shooting compared to Greensboro's 5 of 23.

Happy B'day. Your 29th I'm sure ?
Well, my birthday's in March.  I've had a 29th birthday, just not this year.  :)

VUL has put its athletic info on the school main website now -
Just heard their women's basketball coach was fired and all the players quit this week, and I was actually not surprised at all when I heard it. Now you realize why I was actually surprised they still have an athletic department!
I'm actually surprised they exist as a school.

Have watched both RMC games and this team is struggling.  No leadership and no shooters.  It's going to be a long season for the Jackets.

I watched part of tonight's game. CNU, ranked #24 pre-season, played hard nosed defense -- clearly tougher than the Jackets' defense. MWC also got top 25 votes. So, maybe a bit early to say how the season might go. Coach Davis has a way of bringing a team along. I looked at the schedule before the start of the season and thought it was entirely possible the Jackets could start 0-4, in spite of what the pollsters thought about them voting them #11. From what I could see freshman guard Rip Engle has promise. Lots of experienced seniors who are going to have to assume that leadership you referred to, which I agree appeared to be somewhat lacking tonight. There are a lot of traditionally strong programs across the country that have gotten off to rough starts so far. And the Jackets could have won tonight's game at the free throw line -- 56% won't win you any close games.
I agree ... 19 of 34 from the FT line tells a big story for RMC.

Managed to secure two tickets for Wednesday's SRO game at Greensboro.  It wasn't easy!  I know Greensboro College wants and deserves a home game on campus, but Hanes Gym is such an inadequate facility for this rivalry game.  Greensboro Coliseum is too big and Hanes Gym is too small.  What to do?  I know, play every game in Ragan-Brown! lol

I know you made the right decision but I'm sorry you had to miss the E&H game. Sounds like GC might have played their best game of the year.

Next year could possibly be the year of the Quakers. I know E&H and BC will be good, don't know about RMc but ya'll seem to handle them regularly, W&L will be a year older/smarter, HSC will be in a rebuilding mode somewhat, SU should be improved and you don't know what CUA will bring, all said, 2015 could be your year.

Enjoy the playoffs and I guess on to b'ball for you. I like b'ball put really can't get into until after Xmas break.
Thanks, tfa.  With a 11/12/13 birthday, I think Saturday parties for the twins are going to be de rigueur for the last week of the DIII season.  lol  I think this Guilford team will be really motivated for the 2015 season ... there are some key losses in this year's senior class, of course, but much of the team is made up of underclassmen.  The early signs point to a formidable team next season, but, hey, other teams in the ODAC can say the same.  Having never been to the NCAA playoffs in football, I'd certainly like to see an outright ODAC championship.  Next season's schedule should be favorable as well, with SU, HSC, RMC and E&H at home.  We should draw W&L, BC and CUA on the road.

Basketball is off to a 2-0 start, but not against teams high on the DIII ladder (Maine-Farmington and William Peace).  Greensboro is on tap Wednesday night in their tiny Hanes Gym.  The last game played there was a raucous affair in the fall of 2007.

Guilford over William Peace 90-72 yesterday while VA Univ-Lynchburg came from behind to top Maine-Farmington, 71-63.  Quakers shot 75% in 2nd half and Dragons overcame a 38-19 halftime deficit in consolation game.

I can't say enough how impressed I am with Coach R at Guilford. Sure he's still trying to get over the H-SC hump, but the coaching and recruiting job he has done the last few years is nothing short of impressive. I really figured Guilford would have a letdown game. It's so common after leaving it all on the field the week before and not getting it done. But somehow those kids and that staff did an amazing job getting the Quakers ready to play again.

I think Coach Newsome will get COY, and he's worthy. But if you are looking for a coach that has done the most over the last few years, I'd put that tag on Coach R. Congratulations to all the teams tied at the top of the conference. Truly a conference season hard fought.
I think Coach Newsome at E&H deserves the 2014 COY.  What a job in his first season!  jknezek, I agree with you, Coach Rusiewicz has done an amazing job in his four years at Guilford.  The Quakers were 0-10 the year before his arrival ... in his stint at the helm, GC's steadily improved going 2-8, 5-5, 6-4 and 8-2 giving him an overall winning record of 21-19.

How did the Quakers get so much better in one week? last week they lost to the Tigers now they are the best team in the ODAC?
How did the Tigers get so much worse in one week?  I'm not sure who's saying the Quakers are the best team in the ODAC ... with a four-way tie for first, it's certainly debatable.  The "best" team in all sports often loses a one-game head-to-head on a given day ... just look at 15 over 2 uspets in March Madness.  If, however, they played a best 4 out of 7 ala the NBA, I think the best team would prevail.  That's the beauty of many college sports (college baseball may be an exception) ... there are always these "one-shot" games.  It's the stuff of legends.  It was a great ODAC season!  So much more interesting than the BC dominance of 10-14 years ago.  Don't you agree?
