Greensboro is building from the ground up with their new coach.  Had over 50 Freshman on this years roster. We visited due to its location and really liked the school and Head coach. Believe me , he made a great pitch to the kids and was very aggressive in recruiting. He didnt sugar coat it either. Told us they had plans for an on campus stadium.  If they give him time and he can upgrade his staff,  Greensboro has a lot to offer a kid.
To be honest, they've been pitching the on campus stadium idea for a while now.  Hope they get it ... tough to play at Grimsley with so many unsold seats.  It's good for everyone in the USASAC and, for that matter, in the ODAC, if Greensboro builds their program up.

Obviously things did not go Quakers way on Saturday. Curious to know your thoughts on the Tigers. Good luck this coming Saturday.
Thanks, tfa2.  It didn't, but thanks for your best wishes this weekend.  HSC has a fine defense, but if you look at the box score, the Tigers had the ball 38 minutes to 22 for Guilford.  All your drives felt like 8 to 10 minutes.  The score looks as though Hampden-Sydney had 3 TD's plus PATs, but the Tigers missed two PATs and came up short on a 2-point conversion attempt ... not sure if kicking will be a problem for the Tigers.  With the score 21-18 when HSC fumbled with 4 minutes to go near midfield, I thought Guilford was going to pull it out ... we couldn't move the ball, however, and HSC got a couple of first downs and were able to run out the clock.  I thought the penalty that called back Guilford QB Miller's long first quarter TD run was key.  It's depressing losing to HSC so often ... I hope we can pull another one out sometime soon.  lol

New to D3 football and the ODAC. Have really enjoyed the start of the season so far. This board has been very informative and fun to read. I'm a Quaker Dad, with several years of coaching in the rear view mirror. Has been real interesting in seeing the big differences in how each school runs its program.
Welcome to the ODAC forum, gridironsouthernboy.  I will be at the HSC game today ... come around the Quaker Club tent area and perhaps we can meet.  Many people will know me if you mention Nova.  +1 Karma  Go Quakers!

Darn.  Ten day weather forecast originally called for rain in Greensboro Sunday to Tuesday ... it's now slated to start midday Saturday.

Just got the scouting report on your Quakers; bottom line, the Quakers are reported to be loaded and may be the most talented team in the odac.
If this is true, take it easy on my Tigers this weekend.
tfa2, the Quakers are a good DIII team ... their 2-2 record is a bit deceiving taking into account our last two games vs Davidson and Jacksonville.  Considering the head-to-head results with HSC in the last 18 seasons (uh, 2-16), I think I should ask the Tigers to ease up on us!  It's a big game ... I know both teams will show up to play.

jk, you're spot on in regards to Greensboro being the worst team in the South Region.  They've had some lackluster performances over the years, but this year takes the cake. After looking at the roster and seeing who had the ball in their hands most of the game, hats off to the freshmen and sophomores that have taken the beatings for ol' GC.  Didn't seem like they quit or threw in the towel--got to feel bad for the kids in that situation. Greensboro needs to look at the Guilford model to right the ship.

I'd heard rumblings after the loss to NCWC and the rumors were true. MC had a ton of kids serving 1st half suspensions. Not sure what the issue was after the NCWC game, but kudos to Coach Hayes for laying down the law.  MC has a relatively young team, but I hope the team responds and gets going back on track.  MC has a week off then it's off to Montgomery. Hoping we can break the streak.
Looking at scores this year, I understand why Greensboro opted out of the Soup Bowl with Guilford after a 20 year run  ...  not sure when, or if, it will return.  After a cumulative 198-13 score in 2014-2016, the game was doing very little to prepare the Quakers for ODAC play or a potential NCAA bid in 2015.  I sincerely hope Greensboro can find ways to strengthen their program.

Hoping the best for you guys, beginning October 14th !!!!

Good luck this weekend, hope the game is well played and w/o injury.
I understand tfa2.  lol   A well-played, injury free game would be great.  BTW, I checked the forecast for Saturday in the 27410:  Cloudy and 84.  No rain forecast until Sunday.

Great win for the Tigers. I think it is very clear, any team in the odac is capable of beating you on any given Saturday. Will be fun to watch it play out.
Hopefully we can pull a road victory this coming Saturday.

W&L vs. E&H must have been entertaining, although I did not like the result.

GC looking forward to D3 play I'm sure, and the past two weeks could have them well prepared to compete.

Not sure what to think of the SU vs. RMC result, why in the heck did they play on Thursday nite during Parents Weekend ?

I'm sure the first part is true and I hope the second part is true.

Nice 51-38 win for the Hornets over RMC last night ... in Ashland, no less.  I didn't realize it was SU's first ODAC win over the Yellow Jackets until I read the recap.

^^^ Several quality non-conference opponents there -- Emory, North Park (18-8 last season and took 2 of 3 vs Augustana), Transylvania.

R-MC posted it's schedule a few weeks ago. Non conf vs CNU, Ramapo, Marymount or SUNY Geneseo, Ferrum, Misericordia, Juniata or St. Joseph (VT), Mary Washington, Frostburg State, Rowan or Hobart. ODAC -- twice vs SU, Randolph, W&L, H-SC, E&H; once vs Roanoke, GC, EMU, BC, VWU, LC.
I also looked up the records of GC's opponents.  I agree, a formidable ooc schedule.  Always worried about RMC, especially in Ashland!

Hawks hold on to win 31-28. Holding our breath at the end with it looking like Ferrum got the onside kick but they touched the ball before it went ten yards so we were able to run out the clock. Would have liked to see more scoring from our offense in that second half but the one TD ended up being enough.
@ Brevard next week.
Go Hawks!
Tough win, Hawks88!  Congratulations.

Offweek =  :(

Just wanted to bring us back up top.  :D
Thanks, Birddawg79.  I've been thinking about the St John's/St Thomas rivalry in the MIAC and, for that matter, our own HSC/RMC tradition which has produced many of the top attendance figures in DIII.  What does the ODAC need to do to create some other key rivalries?  For example, who should play the last game of the season in 2018?  Here are some suggestions based partly on tradition and partly on geography:

HSC and RMC   Duh, leave this one alone!
BC and SU   Sort of a NoVA/I-81 thing.
E&H and FC  Already some bad blood here in the hills of SW VA ... Hwy 58.
GC and W&L  Three hours and a billion dollars apart ... Lee vs the Underground Railroad.

It's good to finally be able to take part here as a supporter of a USA South conference school.  Brevard's years in Division II are best remembered dimly if at all.

We weren't sure just what the new Brevard coach (Bill Khayat) and his staff had to work with with the classification change and what type of offense they would choose to install to replace the old Brevard triple option.  The results against Davidson (ranked dead last in the Sagarin ratings of all FBS and FCS schools) and Emory & Henry weren't all that heartening, but the emphasis on passing was something BC fans hadn't seen since 2008, when the former coach brought in his son as a transfer and BC threw the ball all over the place for a season.  The new coaches attributed the Davidson and E&H losses to the defense having to spend too much time on the field--and that due to an inexperienced offensive line that resulted in far too many three-and-outs.  But Saturday against Greensboro (I saw most of the game on the Greensboro video feed) Brevard showed that a lot of excellent coaching had taken place in the last week and the coaching was starting to take hold.  Maybe Greensboro just isn't that good, or had a particularly bad day, but Brevard handled them the way many South Atlantic Conference teams used to handle Brevard.  It was pleasant to be on the other end for a change.

As the Tornados move on to LaGrange this week and into the rest of the USAC schedule beyond that, we'll see.  But BC has some offensive weapons, with a Division I-size quarterback who has a good arm and skilled veterans of the past couple seasons moved from alternating at option QB to pass receiving positions.  The offensive line looked respectable against Greensboro and is gaining valuable experience with each game.  The defense is solid but can't play 40 minutes, as the coaches recognize. . . .  LaGrange will be an interesting game from several perspectives, and I look forward to what veteran USAC fans think of Brevard as the season progresses.
Welcome to DIII, Subway Alum.  I know a little about sports at Brevard (my nephew played basketball there and graduated in 2009) ... Brevard just never had the numbers and budget to make DII work, especially in the SAC.

As jknezek said, don't read too much into a rout of Greensboro ... the Pride will suffer several this season, I think.  It will take several seasons for Brevard to be a viable player in the USASAC, but the coaches and players will learn a lot this season.  Good luck!
