I see Saturday, Oct. 25, is Homecoming at RMC for the Guilford game.  I've been on the campus twice before and know where Day Field is, but I've never been to a Randolph-Macon football game.  Any advice from Macon fans on the best (any) places to park?  Thanks.

PS  I've been to Guilford's first six games ... and hope to make it to all ten this season.

I expect there will be parking on the grass across from the softball field (#75 on the map link below) - up W. Patrick Street.  The lots closest to the football field (#63) are reserved, Lot J is for tailgating, and Lot F is for handicapped.  You can try you luck parallel parking along Henry or N. Center Street or any of the streets or smaller lots but they fill up quickly.  You could also probably park at the elementary school which is a little ways North up Henry Street (past Smith Street).

Thank you, hoopstermom.  I appreciate the advice.  If you are at the game Saturday, walk by the Guilford stands and yell "nova".  lol

Thank you, narch, for looking up the actual numbers.  +1  You are the best non-QB poster in d3 who actually looks up the stats.

I do concede opening with Greensboro at home in 2014 is not the same as opening at Wabash, but MU and CNU appear to fairly evenly matched as evidenced by their classic OT game.   And CCA ... I'm confident several QB/WR tandems could score big stats against the Bears.

With all this said, the proof is on the field head-to-head ... and the sad truth is HSC has beaten my alma mater 14 years in a row.  HSC is the better team until someone else proves they can match up and play.

Hasa,

We noticed Schow was not playing in the W&L game, but the good thing is that Bell has been doing a nice job filling in and getting good experience for a freshman.  We also kicked around the idea that Pawlowski had a rough outing against SU and there might be some mental doubt or hesitancy there.  It seems as if GC has a group of capable receivers so at times we got frustrated.  I definitely got tired of seeing a running back in motion pre-snap and just seeing that swing pass.  It wasn't all that effective.  The good thing is that GC showed a little versatility being able to change up the offensive game plan and still be effective.  They did have a couple of nice draw plays along the way.
Schow was out a couple of games with an injury suffered in practice, but you're right, Bell did great.

I think there were a several factors at play in the run-oriented offense by GC versus BC:

RB Schow was back from an injury
Perhaps they were trying to take a bit of mental pressure off Pawlowski since he had a three INT (2 for pick six) game last week
It was working from the onset

Last year GC was 4-0 in the ODAC with 3 games to play. They lost 2 of those games. Point is at 3-0 HSC has only locked up a .500 season. Their are a lot of games to be played.
That's for sure ... there are a lot of games remaining that can decide the ODAC championship.

Nice to see the Generals get a win. Wish I could have seen the game, but I was stuck at a wedding. I thought the team might be maturing, and I think they will be competitive with everyone going forward. We will see. At Bridgewater isn't a good omen. Always a bad place for W&L.
Bridgewater is a good team ... not great ... but very solid.  Even at 4-2 (1-2), I will not be surpised if they still go 4-3 in the ODAC.

Going 4-3 in the ODAC?  Who are they playing in the seventh game?   ;)
Well, Bridgewater's seventh conference game is Catholic the last week of the season. Are they not going to play one? The ODAC has 8 football members and a seven game conference season since Shenandoah joined.
Keep up CMR.  :) This is the third season the now 8-team football ODAC has played 7 conference games.  I see your post was deleted, so you probably realized that on your own.

Guilford played reasonably well yesterday, but could never put the hammer down versus a good BC team.  GC led by two TDs three times at 14-0, 21-7 and 35-21.  BC scored to make it 35-28 and then executed a perfect onside kick for their final drive.  The Quakers held on inside the five and got a stop on fourth and 1 with about 45 seconds to go.  The refs brought out the chains and the gap looked to be about 6 inches.  In reality, the Quakers are in "playoff" mode the rest of the season.  I think the ODAC champ will have only one loss at most.

Depression is only a week long adventure in the football world. Unless you are from Jones COunty.  ;)
not depressed, just realistic - that defense HAS to get better for the monarchs to reach their goals, and jones county is lovely...as long as you're just passing through :)
Well, it also has a Trenton.

Mr. Coleman would be sensitive to using the correct acronym (CUA) for The Catholic University of America since he is an alum of that fine institution and not of Clark Atlanta University (CAU), or University of Central Arkansas (UCA), or Abilene Christian University (ACU), or any other higher education institution that could use the three letters A, C, and U (in any order) for an acronym.
Well, the best place for dyslexic students is still probably IUPUI.  :)

I don't think CAU can pull an upset

Central Arkansas University?
I wondered when someone was going to right that ship.

Officials may not have been very good but they did not give up the 8 sacks and throw the 3 INTs.  Last year the loss to SU was actually a turning point for HSC.  That loss seem to strengthen their resolve to prove what a talented team they had. It will be interesting to see how Quakers respond this weekend against BC (who beat SU last week). That game will most likely eliminate the loser from having a shot at the ODAC championship.   

EH is the big surprise for 2014. Next week they are at HSC. HUGE game on "The Hill".  The winner will be all alone in first place.
I never said the officials were the OL.

GC gives up 47 and you are talking about having a chance?  Really?
Guilford scored with a couple of minutes to go to make it 41-31 ... came up short going for 2 which would have made it a one possession game at 41-33.  Last pick six for SU was run in after time expired, so meaningless.  I usually don't do this, but the officials were not very good today.

HSCTiger,

Trust me, I know Marty Ball is about scoring lots of points regardless of the weather.  I don't recall the 2009 game, but I recall some of the games I played against HSC.  I think sometimes I left the field going "what just happened?"   :)  I think guys like Ricca, Singh, and Clemmons gave me nightmares...it's my way of saying they were good players in a good system.  In fact, I think sometimes HSC has an underrated defense because the offenses are usually so good.  I recall the HSC/GC game last year.  I went to the game thinking, "wow, this might be a fun game to watch this year", only to quickly have my hopes dashed.  I think the HSC defense did a great job last year of flying around and putting pressure of Pawlowski and the rest of the offense.  It was certainly the best defensive effort I saw all year against GC.
I was at the 2009 washout and, I think, HSC put up 31 against a GC team on the decline.  It was raining so hard, I could not see the coin toss at the middle of the field.  Awful.  Last year, it was a beautiful day and the Tigers put up 52 against a team on the rise.  Again, perhaps more awful because I expected more than I did in 2009.  Hope springs eternal, but after 14 years, you have to be a bit philosophical.
