Guilford had a controlled scrimmage with Ferrum this afternoon in Greensboro, but it was over before I could leave work. Anyone know how that went?

hah. I pulled the breakdown from a message i got on facebook. that'll teach me to not check it over. 21 FY, 20 sophomores, 20 juniors, and 13 seniors. that makes 74. +K for the catch...I'm just messing with you ... but I do notice numbers. Hope the Generals have a good season ... except against the Quakers, of course.
W&L posted their roster recently. Seems like it wasn't the best recruiting year for the Generals, but nothing too abnormal. There were 83 or so Generals last year, there are 74 this year. 21 FYs, 19 Sophs, 19 Jnr, 12 Snrs. As is typical, the retention is excellent even if the numbers aren't huge. Unlike last year when a missing Alex Evans rang an immediate alarm bell I'm not seeing any significant attrition this year.As a numbers guy, what about the other three?
Just a few names to watch. Micah Fleet is back for the OL for his senior season, Austin Eisenhoffer back at RB for his senior year. The Taylors are back at DB in their fourth year, as is Stephen Mauk. The OL and DL should both have significant senior status. Junior Dillon Stanfield is back in the backfield, Alex Yacoubian in the defensive backfield, Russell Schmidt at QB/RB, Jake Barr in the linebacking corps.
But the real key is the sophomore class which brings back QB Charlie Nelson and RB Marshall Hollerith who were significant contributors as well as a few other lettermen like Will Dyson. I expect a bunch more from this class to see serious time this year as they seemed to be an exceptionally strong FY class last year and there was really good retention.
Thanks. I've been purposely quiet about the 5 points GC got in the DIII preseason vote. Without a doubt, HSC should be #1 in the ODAC and I'm happy with #3, but let's not forget GC has topped RMC the past two seasons. Now, if we can ever scale Tiger Mountain and not have a rainfest letdown against the likes of Averett, perhaps we can get over the 6-4 plateau as well.I saw Guilford WR Chad Christopher and his parents at the local Target store Tuesday night - probably helping him stock his room with a few supplies. We chatted for a bit and talked about practice starting yesterday and the upcoming season. There's a lot of optimism in Chad and in the greater Quaker Nation for a really good season! Go Quakes!
The Quaker Nation apparently is not alone in its optimism for this season, as Guilford was the only other ODAC school to receive votes in the D3.com Top 25 Poll. Best of luck this year (aside from 11/8, of course).
Nice little preview here for our game on the 6th, officially dubbed as The Gentlemen's Classic.Should be a great experience for both teams and their fans.
HasaYeah, still here. New boss is making life hectic. I've been on the road a lot as well. Not too much to report from Quaker Nation, although the guys did get 5 points in the Top 25. When I see a practice, I'll check in again. Lots of skill players returning (as well as 36 newcomers) from a 6-4, 5-2 squad.
You still with us ?
