It's good to see the ODAC teams stepping up. W&L has stepped up big time this year. As has Bridgewater with Gettysburg and Thomas More (and Apprentice, but I'll take the other two over the soft boiled eggs they've played in the past). H-SC adding UWP is nice but at least they hold on to CNU this year. I think UWP is also a function of the ODAC staring down the 7 team problem in 2017. WIAC schools have the same issue. E&H has Brevard and M'Ville this year. Brevard is transitioning to DIII so might be interesting, but they went 0-11 last year in NAIA so they may really suck.Brevard has actually played in the NCAA DII South Atlantic Conference (Catawba, Mars Hill, Lenoir-Rhyne, Carson-Newman, Wingate), but the assertion they suck probably still holds true.
Nice to see Shenandoah stepping up in 2017 with Hobart. This year has nothing to write home about. R-MC back tracked, losing JHU and picking up Dickinson, who was cut out of their traditional game against Hobart on the heels of a long losing streak. And of course Guilford has what it usually has. Marshmallow fluff.
Catholic is leaving, so no point in mentioning them for the future, but this year they've only landed two OOC games. Putrid McDaniel and usually not so good Coast Guard.
Disappointed in Guilford with the same old, same old, but I see that changing on one game in 2017. For now, I think we are locked in with intracity Greensboro and intrastate Methodist because we've played each school every year since they started football.
