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.
