Thinking out loud here:

I wonder what kind of support there would be for a Week 12 "Bowl Game" between the 2nd place USAC and ODAC teams?

May not be feasible due to the inter-conference play OOC and by the time the regular season ends, people are ready for basketball to start. Thoughts?

I admit to not thinking this out more than "it would be cool if..."
In some cases, it might be the second meeting of the season ...

I tried eluding to that.
Yeah, I see you did ... thanks.

Ad's have admitted finding three OOC games is becoming harder and harder each and every year. I think it makes sense for the odac to expand to eliminate the rising problem. I'm sure most disagree, however, lets act like most do agree and lets suggest a couple of schools suitable for the odac. I'll suggest Maryville and Frostburg St.

Absolutely not on Frostburg. The ODAC is private schools and it should stay that way. As for expanding, for football only or for all sports? Because there are a lot of ODAC sports that are bursting at the seams, especially women's sports. Football isn't the only sport played in the conference.

If it was me, Maryville would be ok but they've already been in and out of the ODAC and it would extend the conference further south. I'd be interested in Southern Virginia, Greensboro, or Averett from a geographic standpoint. The footprint wouldn't really get any larger. Good teams come and go, geography is permanent (on a human scale anyway) and affects costs.

Those three would probably all be pretty good fits, and geographically you could maybe add Ferrum into the mix as well. Or maybe all the ODAC grads who are interested in football could make a one-time donation to Randolph with the proviso that it could only be used to start a program.   ;)
I think the ODAC has the philsophical, if not geographic, mix it wants.  There are other reasons besides geography to add a school to your conference.  A more likely scenario to adding schools (for football) is to convince schools such as LC, Roanoke or even VWC to add footfall.  I think EMU abstains for other reasons and Randolph might not be ready for the number of male students and facilites required.

just need to keep the Ad's talking. I think take four years off and put Wabash back on the schedule for another home and away. If HSC would start charging for home games the gate receipts would cover the cost. I think it cost about $75K to get the HSC squad out to Wabash last year and the gate receipts would easily cover although I think it would take an act of congress to force HSC to actually charge for admission. Thats a real sticking point for me, why leave the $$$ on the table ?

Lots of D3 schools give free admission to their own students (and sometimes certain others), but HSC must be among the very few that don't charge admission for anyone. :o

(Or am I again thinking IWU is 'typical' - I caught a lot of flak a few years ago for assuming attendance at basketball games in D3 was closer to CCIW standards than to zero! ;D)
While true that there was no charge for admission, I was charged $10 last year to park in the lots around Fleet, so HSC is getting some money.  A trip to SU last year cost $5 to park and $5/6 (can't remember) for the game.

Just saw the Guilford 2015 football schedule .... other than venues, really only one possible change with seven ODAC games and the currently unbroken streaks with intrastate rivals Greensboro and Methodist (Guilford has played both every year since they started football) ... we host Averett after a year's hiatus to play Southern Virginia.  C'mon, live a little and play a broader mix ... in my opinion, the boys deserve a home and away with another school every four year period ... much along the lines of HSC and Wabash.

Budgets my friend. It's all about budgets. Get some of those big donors to open up for athletics.
Yeah, I know what it's about ... trips to Danville and Salem are relatively cheap and do not require overnight stays.  Guilford to Averett is about 50 miles up US Hwy 29.  In my memory, GC has played Davidson, Ferrum, Maryville (TN), Chowan (now DII), Sewanee, Salisbury and Carson-Newman (DII) ... but not very often since Methodist, Greensboro, Averett and Southern Virginia started football.  Interestingly, Guilford and intrastate DIII NC Wesleyan have never played each other in football, although we have met in many other sports.

Hi, OAC fans. I'm a Guilford College alumnus from the ODAC.  I recently read Steve McNeely is leaving Mount Union to join the Guilford staff as QB coach.  Guilford's 7-year veteran QB coach took a DI job at NC A&T across town in Greensboro.  Everyone in DIII knows the type of success Mount Union's had and that their QB Burkes won the Gagliardi award.  Guilford's rising senior QB Matt Pawlowski was a Gagliardi nominee and has steadily improved with all 30 starts finishing 5-5, 6-4 and 8-2 (lost tie-breaker for ODAC title to Hampden-Sydney).  Based on your observations, what will McNeely bring to a relatively high-powered Quaker offense that scored 52 four times and averaged 41 ppg in 2014?  Thanks

As seen on Guilford's webpage and the first page of D3football.com:

Steve McNeely joins Guilford staff from Mt. Union to coach QBs.

Hasa

Thanks for the update. Is 2015 going to be the year of the Quakers ? Certainly will be preseason #1 in the odac with a real opportunity to end HSC's dominance over the Quakers. In fact I favor GC by 14 over the Tigers in 2015. I think BC and E&H will be good and W&L much improved. Don't know about RMC.  SU will improve but will still struggle in the odac; CUA can only get better, I think.
You're welcome.  Coach Chris Rusiewicz and SID Dave Walters are quite conscientious about releasing 5 or 6 names at a time as they get commitments - very nice from a fan's point of view.  Is 2015 the Year of the Quaker?  On paper, I think you'd have to say so with many skill positions on offense back for their Senior season.  QB Pawlowski has all 30 starts under his belt and has improved each year.  The schedule is favorable also with E&H, RMC, SU and HSC at home and W&L, BC and CUA on the road.  As far as the HSC monkey is concerned, it must be partly psychological ... there have been years we were better and still couldn't get it done.  Fifteen straight is long enough!  I went to Farmville last November and personally thought we should have gone for two and the win on the TD that tied it rather than relying on a kicked PAT and OT, but I may not have known all the facts.  It looked as though momentum was on our side.  It was a disappointing ride home for sure.

Congratulations to the Marlins on a fine season.  I believe the ODAC will win another championship soon.  With several conference teams at this level, the competition helps us all get better!

RMC faced a tough situation. Beating a good team three times in one season is almost impossible, the 4th time is even more so. Should not be forced into that situation until the final four, my opinion.

Good luck to the Marlins this coming weekend. I'll try my best to get there.

Hasa, short drive from Greensboro !!!!
We'll see ... work is killing me at the moment ... not many Saturdays off!

Congratulations to both VWC and RMC for great runs!  How many times do you play the same team four times in one season?  Go Marlins ... represent the ODAC well.

Congratulations to VWC and RMC ... ODAC with 2 in Elite Eight and one guaranteed for Final Four!  Reminds me of EMU at GC in 2010.
