South Region football / Re: FB: Old Dominion Athletic Conference

I know a lot of schools have gotten turf, which looks nice, but there's something about a natural grass field that I love.  Personally, I hope CNU doesn't ever resort to turf...they have the means and ability to maintain a very nice grass field.  I'm not trying to be disrespectful, hasa, as I'm sure Guilford's turf is beautiful...just figured I'd throw in my two cents.
None taken.  Guilford's actually had turf for almost 10 years, this is a replacement with better graphics.  With five sports (and their practices) plus other events it was hard to keep the grass in shape.

Just drove by Guilford to take a look at the new turf field. ... Big maroon G at the 50, Guilford in the north endzone and Quakers in the south ... looks good.

I'm not naive.  If Guilford didn't have football, Pawlowski would have gone elsewhere.  Some schools over-recruit to fill beds.  Some coaches lead players astray with overly optimistic ideas of the playing time they'll see.  I just comment on the coaches and school I know ...

I believe this thread got its impetus because I repeated GC's announcement that 157 student-athletes reported for camp this week.  I only know of 20 announced first year recruits for the Quakers and I believe Coach Rusiewicz and his staff to be upfront and honest with incoming students and walk-ons as in ... "We will start the best players.  Currently you are #"ain't gonna see much time" at your position on our depth chart."  Matt Pawlowski was told he was 5th on the QB chart at the start of camp in 2012 and he came to Guilford anyway where he started 40 games.  The other piece of this puzzle is this:  Guilford is a good school with a beautiful campus that perhaps people simply want to attend whether they play football or not (read about St. John's in Minnesota sometime).  The chance to be on the football team would be a bonus.   Finally, lots of players will naturally be attracted to a team coming off four winning seasons and a 17-3 record in the last two.   I don't believe Coach R, his staff and Guilford College are trying to do anything unethical ... they have simply built and are encouraging a desirable DIII environment for student athletes and their families in a state with limited opportunities in this niche.  In NC, our DIII (with football) competitors are NCWC, Methodist, Greensboro and now Brevard.  Each offers different things and different locales ... I humbly think ours is the best in one of most attractive parts of the state.  In fact, perhaps one of the premier DIII academic with football opportunities south of Virginia.

Guilford webpage reports 157 student athletes checked in for football ... that's about a 100 more than many of the years I've followed Quaker football!  Hope it's a good season!

Good for Guilford College. Bad for those kids hoping to play D3 football. I can't say I really like this habit some schools develop.
I don't disagree.  It does create revenue and fill beds, but if you are 157th on the depth chart, when will you play?  Including special teams and three deep on position charts on both sides of the ball, you're only looking at 80 that will see any meaningful time.  I only saw 20 players that Coach Rusiewicz announced as recruits, so the rest must be returning lettermen and students who hope for a spot in the tradition of St. John's in Minnesota.

Just because he's been the most consistently successful coach in the ODAC in the D3football.com era, though Coach Clark reached the highest level, here's Coach Favret's record against ODAC opponents at H-SC:

Guilford: 15-1   Streak: lost 1      longest streak, 15 wins                 
E&H:      14-2   Streak: won 14    longest streak,  14 wins
Catholic: 13-3   Streak: won 3     longest streak, 7 wins
R-MC:     10-6   Streak: lost 2     longest streak, 7 wins
W&L:      10-6   Streak: lost 1      longest streak, 3 wins (twice)
Bwater:  8-7      Streak: won 1    longest streak, 7 losses, 7 wins
'Doah:    3-1     Streak: won 2     longest streak, 2 wins

So there you go. Coach Favret has a winning record against EVERY ODAC team. Only Bridgewater is close, and they have lost 8 of their last 9 against H-SC.
Thanks for the research.  I have to believe, however, that there is one more game vs BC in his 16 year career ... instead of 8-7, wouldn't it be 8-8 or 9-7?  (I just looked it up ... he's 8-8 vs BC).

EH has not beaten HSC since 2001.  Coach Favret is an amazing 30-2 against EH and GC.

Not quite true. Coach Favret lost to E&H in both his first two years in charge of H-SC, and Guilford last year. I suspect he is 29-3 against those two teams. Which is really no less impressive than 30-2, simply more accurate...
Out of nothing more than pure curiosity, I checked Coach Favret's record in "The Game" with RMC:  he's 10-6, having lost his first contest in 2000, then winning 7 straight from 2001-2007 and finally going 3-5 in the last eight games from 2008-15.

I wonder what the longest streak in the ODAC is? W&L lost 19 straight to E&H from '83 to '01. That's got to be up there.
I'd also be curious to know about nationwide ... I bet two of the best places to look would be Mt. Union and UW-Whitewater opponents in the OAC and WIAC, respectively.  I remember Ohio Northern topping UMU maybe ten years ago, but most of the time the Raiders are 9-0 in conference.  I would wager there are some 20+-game streaks there.

Not the dream I was hoping for. Woke up suddenly & upset. Damn Quakers !!!! we'll do our best to start another 15 year run but not holding my breath waiting for that to happen. Still think Generals will win another odac title in 2016, and get beat badly in first round, typical of the odac winner.
I hope the Tigers never have another 15 year run against the Quakers ... that was painful!  Some of our newer posters may not know that Guilford topped HSC in 1999 and then did not win again against the Tigers until 2015's 33-20 victory in Greensboro. So, 2000-2014 was a long drought!  There were a couple of seasons in that stretch that I thought GC had the advantage, but couldn't pull through.  One game that sticks in my mind was HSC's 2007 road victory in Greensboro ... the final was 56-49 with the Tigers scoring 8 times on the ground and the Quakers getting 7 TDs passing from QB Josh Vogelbach.  Another memorable game was a 2005 contest, also in Greensboro, when GC dropped a 47-45 homecoming decision to the Tigers in Vogelbach's rookie season.  Both games were entertaining, but frustrating for Quaker fans!

Congratulations to W&L's Michael LaSalla. Named a D3Football.com first team pre-season All American at tackle. Nice to see another W&L O-lineman getting recognition. We all know how explosive that triple option can be, and it starts with the guys in the trenches.
Nice.  It should also be noted that Guilford's explosive De'Eric Bell got a second team nod as a Return Specialist.  Expect him to put up some impressive all-purpose numbers this year at RB, Receiving and Returns.   He's fun to watch!

I didn't see his name or I would have added it. Big congratulations to him. He was a stud in the W&L game last year and a weapon for the Quakers. He had 2 good KO returns and a couple 20 yard receptions/runs. I'm sure the conference will be watching lots of tape trying to figure out how to slow him down!
Thanks.  I know you would have ... I suspected he might be there, so that's why I thought to look.  Again, congratulations to both young men!
