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!
1945 University of Maryland 60, Guilford 6

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!
Intercollegiate games of 100 points or more ... some ODAC schools listed:

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."

Isn't "lessor" a landlord as opposed to "lesser" in terms of ranking goals?

Is someone else in insurance, hasa?
Actually, Scots13, I was for a short period ... once held five different insurance licenses ... more a student of languages and their nuances.  :)

That's fair and I agree that GC is the team to beat. When I say the road goes thru HSC it's because no one except WL and HSC has won an ODAC title in the last 5 seasons. Close last year does not put a ring on your finger. 

Didn't four teams share that thing last year?
Yes, they did.  Bridgewater, E&H and Guilford were all 8-2 (5-2) and Hampden-Sydney was 7-3 (5-2).  The first tiebreakers eliminated BC and E&H and the final tiebreaker eliminated GC in the head-to-head OT match-up with HSC.  I hope my Tiger buddies won't take this the wrong way, but HSC "limped" into the playoffs with a loss to RMC and some injuries and finished 7-4 after hitting the buzzsaw better known as Wesley.  Final point, however, HSC earned the title.

I believe GC got the preseason nod this year because they were playing effectively at end of the 2014 season (yeah, I know we lost to HSC in game 9), the number of returning Seniors and Juniors at key positions and a somewhat favorable schedule: 6 games in Greensboro (Soup Bowl with Greensboro included) and ODAC home games with SU, RMC, HSC and E&H).

I am cautiously optimistic ... i.e., don't count your chickens until they're hatched.  One game at a time and we haven't beaten HSC since 1999.

If they did the game in a full game format, then the 1's and 2's were in the first half, and the 22-0 score isn't surprising. Ready to see what happens in the OOC USAC/ODAC schedule.
That's pretty much the way it went.  I'm looking forward to the season.
