hasaThanks. I'm glad we pulled it out. I'm always wary of a trip to HSC ... try not to get ahead of myself when we play the Tigers. To your point, the three has definitely changed the game.
congrats on the victory. that damn 3 point shot is one reason I no longer enjoy college b'ball.
good luck to your Quakers. Don't think you have much to worry about this coming Saturday. I here the Tigers are not very good this year, picked 7th in odac preseason and from what I've been told, are not playing so good 5 games in. hopefully that all well change when your Quakers come to town !!!!!
Hope this is not a repeat of last year for the Royals. A lot of "moral victories" but really close losses.EMU is athletic and can shoot. I think they'll win their share this year. Guilford let 6-10 point leads get away at the end of the game with, you guessed it, made threes by the Royals. Think about it ... 54 points on threes by the Royals and 40% shooting beyond the arc ... that's equal to 60% on two-pointers. It's tough to have to score thrice to counter two scores by EMU ... glad we were able to pull it out.
Huntingdon and Guilford have announced a new 4 year deal for Week 1 games. At Huntingdon next fall to begin.I have to believe former Guilford player and men's basketball assistant coach Caleb Kimbrough may have helped broker this. He was Tom Palombo's (mbb HC and AD) #1 assistant for six years before moving to Huntingdon. Caleb will be Assistant HC this season and is slated to assume the HC position for the Hawks next season.
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 !!!!
