I hate games played in bad weather. Congratulations to the Tigers. Matthew was the winner yesterday.

I hope you're right ... no more injuries. I've been wondering about the effect of the rain on the field ... knew it was natural turf. Hope it doesn't unduly affect play tomorrow.Re Russell, no, I don't know why he wasn't on 2-deep submission.Thanks. Wonder what the deal is. Hope he didn't suffer an injury as well.
Various forecasts calling for nearly an inch of rain tomorrow. Hopefully, our field doesn't get torn to shreds. The ground is already saturated from the rain we got last night and this morning, though our athletic fields are built to drain much better than your run of the mill grassy areas. But between 1.25 and 1.5 inches of rain in 48 hours is going to be hard of any grass field.
HasaThanks. Everyone in Quaker Nation is disappointed, but hope De'Eric will recover soon. He was on track to break a lot of records this season. Fortunately, the Quakers are deeper than just #5. I'm not taking HSC for granted, so I hope the Quakers will show up ready to play. See you Saturday!
I enjoyed the article but I'm sad to learn your RB is hurt and out for the remainder of the season. I was looking forward to watching him play. Injuries are the one thing I really hate about athletics. These kids work so hard year round and boom, they are done. Happened to my kid earlier during preseason camp, third shoulder injury and doctor told him no more. Breaks your heart but I guess a good life lesson.
Good luck to your Quakers on Saturday. Try not to set scoring records !!!!
weather report at 4:30am this morning sounds promising, they are now saying Matthew will head off shore after hitting the SC coast and not affect NC or Va. Lets hope that model plays out.I saw that report this morning ... hope that's the way it goes!
sounds like football may be challenged this weekend as the hurricane is heading further west than originally thought.Rain at Homecoming is never good ... and it sure looks like rain this Saturday! Reminds me of Guilford's Homecoming in 2009 ... ironically against HSC ... it was raining so hard I could not see beyond the home bench. I was the driver and was with three other people, so they were looking to me to decide how long we stayed. After about 5 minutes, they looked over at me as if to say, "You idiot, if you're not going to pull the plug on this fiasco, we are!" Probably the earliest I have ever left a game, and just as well, as HSC won 31-6.
Richmond is now projected to received 5 to 6 inches of rain with 30 mph winds, HSC is 60 west of Richmond but not sounding too good at this point. Hasa, if you have any pull from above, your influence will be appreciated !!!!
hasaI'll be keeping an "eye" on Matthew ... hope it's offshore and causes minimal damage and interruptions.
I'd like to say hello. Hopefully that damn hurricane will not effect the game too much.
Can't say I'm looking forward to the game as I think GC will score at will, but I think HSC will score as well, just not at will.
Here is to hoping our defense figures out a scheme/game plan that can slow you guys down.
0-5 sounds painful but sure looks like a real possibility at this point.
I think HSC grew up a little bit this past Saturday, in the 4th quarter. BC up 45 to 20, faked a punt down to the HSC 30 yard line; instead of packing it in the Tigers turned what could have been a 52 to 20 blow out into a ten point game. Freshman QB looked really good in the 4th quarter.I am planning to drive to Farmville on Saturday and tailgate before the game ... hope to be able to say hello to some of the HSC posters at the game. Safe travels to everyone.
Still along way to go. Defense just cannot get enough stops; opponents pretty much run and pass at will. No answers yet. if the defense does not improve the season will continue down this path.
Great gameI saw the final. Wild. 48 all in regulation. 7/7/0/3 for AU to win. Naturally, LC went 7/7/0/0.
Averett 65 LaGrange 62. 4OT.
The audio went down but it looked like a 37yd FG to win.
Second and third. Fumbles, penalties. Uggh. But, let's focus on the win. Strong win in the end. Big plays at times, good defense at times. The pieces are there, and I have faith that it will all come together now that we are in the ODAC schedule. A food start, lots of things still to work on, but the win was the important part and there is no doubt the guys busted chops to bring that home.When it was 35-23 and E&H was driving, the Interception shifted the momentum back in W&L's favor. Good win for the Generals and a tough start to the season for the Wasps. Looks as though RMC will go to 4-0 at SU. With the Yellow Jackets win, it's a lock there will be two 4-0 teams in the ODAC after tomorrow since both Guilford and Catholic enter their game at 3-0.
