South Region football / Re: FB: Old Dominion Athletic Conference
« on: Yesterday at 09:50:11 am »
While shopping at the New Garden Road Target in Greensboro yesterday, I met the parents of Nick Jones (2013-14 WR at RMC, #14).  Nick graduated from Northern Guilford HS in Summerfield, NC and attended RMC for a year and a half.  In January, Nick transerred to Guilford and participated in spring drills with the Quakers.  According to his parents, Nick is recovering from some nagging injuries and may sit out the 2015 season.  It's a shame because Nick knows Matt Pawlowski (Northwest Guilford HS) and would be another receiver for an already potent offense.

Hasa (or whomever) - I spent a few minutes on the Guilford website tonite, and noticed than neither Ben Strong or Tyler Sanford was in the HoF - any story behind that?

Guilford requires student-athletes to be 10 years removed before they are eligible to be nominated. A fairly standard requirement, most schools seem to have a 7-10 year window. If the graduated the same year they were seniors on the basketball team, Sanborn will be eligible in 2020 and Strong in 2018.
All true statements from hscathletics ... I most certainly think both will be in the Guilford HOF ... both were National DIII PoY, Strong scored 59 in an NCAA playoff game and averaged over 20 ppg in his career and Sanborn went to the Final Four twice.

Brevard is in western NC, so not so far from Maryville, Piedmont and the like.  It's a haul to NC Wesleyan in eastern NC and would have been a very long trip to CNU.  NC covers a lot of territory east to west ... with Tennessee, you can go Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River in only two states ... same with Virginia and Kentucky or Virginia and Tennessee (and, for you purists, Georgia and Tennessee lol).

I do not think Brevard would be a successful candidate for the ODAC or SAA ... USASAC is, in my opinion, their best option.  My nephew attended there as a DII basketball player, so I know their history in the DII South Atlantic Conference.
Me either to the bolded part. I'm just thinking more overall density. The USASC is a huge geographic footprint, although not as bad as the ASC. The south just needs more density to lower the costs in a few of these conferences. The SAA is probably less worried about costs than fit, but I'd think the USASC would love to consolidate a bit. Huntingdon to CNU was a bear, so dropping the northern team helps. But Huntingdon to Averett is still almost 550 miles as is Huntingdon to Methodist. That's a long trip...
Brevard was a JC in my lifetime and has a relatively small student body and alumni base ... I bet they don't have the finances (including endowment) to support far-flung travel.  I think they were taking their lumps in DII football with the likes of Carson-Newman and Lenoir-Rhyne in their conference.
Speaking of taking their "lumps", Brevard was 1-10 in 2014: started the season 0-10 and ended the season with a 66-0 win over Charlotte-based College(?) of Faith, a team that set all sorts of records for futility ... including a very lop-sided loss to Wesley.

Brevard went from NAIA to D2 last decade.

Yep, they used to play in the Appalachian Athletic Conference, which does not have football:

Rough travel time from Brevard to the rest of the USA South:

Maryville 2:40
Huntingdon 5:30
LaGrange 4:25
Methodist 4:40
Averett 4
NC Wesleyan 3:15
Ferrum 4:20
Greensboro 3:15

Huntingdon to CNU is like 11 hours and HC to Ferrum is like 9. Ya win some, ya lose some.
Thanks for putting this together ... I have to think Brevard to NCWC might be an error ... probably more like 5:15.

Interesting headline:

http://www.mypanhandle.com/story/d/story/two-graceville-football-players-sign-scholarships/17360/4MJ-ygRtfUWAK8Cu4hBxIw

Simple fact checking is beyond the reach of newspapers these days... To be fair, headlines are usually written separately from the reporter who wrote the story, so it's likely the headline writer is at fault since the story does not mention scholarships.
Would have been nice if they could have spelled Huntingdon correctly too.

The bottom 50% of the class have to find jobs somewhere.....I think we found where a few of them landed.....writing headlines. It is annoying when people, who have access to thousands of readers, do not get the facts straight or can't spell the name of a college correctly.

^ ouch.

You would think it's common knowledge D3 schools don't have athletic scholarships. I mean come on..aren't there like twice as many D3 schools as D1?
The average D1 alum/football fan, has no Idea that D3 exists, other than maybe club sports.   
I spoke with a set of Florida State Alums in Talahassee last week, and we got on to the suject of football, since FSU had a scrimmage that day.   They had no idea who Mount Union or UWW was.  When I mentioned that there was indeed a D3 football championship, there was general smirking...and I have run into that elswhere.  In general, unless someone is a real football fan, D3 is not on a D1 alum's radar...
I run into Greensboro natives from time to time who ask "Does Guilford play football?"  Sigh!  The answer is yes, since 1892, but 95% of what they see or read in the local news is about DI ... and I accept we are in the middle of Tobacco Road.  I doubt Guilford and Greensboro would make the front page of the Greensboro News and Record Sports section even if they went 15-0 and won the Stagg Bowl ... although I'd love to find out!

Congratulations to Methodist and LaGrange for their 1-2 finish at the DIII National Men's Golf Championship in Greensboro.  Host Guilford finished 8th in the 41 team field.

And my Titans finished 9th, just five strokes behind the hosts.  I'd be happier about that, except they went steadily down hill: t3rd after day one, then 4th, 6th, and 9th, with their strokes going up each day. :(

We were in Greensboro for several days soon after the tourney so my wife could do genealogical research (including at Hege Library).  One branch of her ancestry was Quaker - some devout (and several buried in the Deep River cemetery); others were 'unFriended' ;D a century or two before Facebook!  Her most direct proven ancestor was a Thrift, which then ties to several other family names.  She suspects the Mendenhalls (founders of Jamestown (NC, not the one in VA!) and among the founders of the New Garden School which evolved into Guilford College) are also related, but has yet to establish a definitive link.

I was VERY impressed with the beauty of GC - I'm a sucker for campuses which have uniformly classical buildings and plenty of mature trees!
Thanks, Mr. Ypsi.  It is a beautiful campus.  BTW, one of the public schools in Greensboro is named Mendenhall.  Deep River Friends Meeting is an oasis of Quakerism that is rapidly being surrounded by urban sprawl in north High Point.  Yes, your IWU Titans are always in the mix.

Here is na article from the HSC website that has info o the fire, and video too

http://www.hsc.edu/The-Record/The-Record-Archive/2014-January/The-Legend-Lives.html
Thanks for the link ... very interesting.  +1  So, how does alleged arson and reportedly interfering with the fire department jive with "forming good men and good citizens since 1776"?  :)
Sometimes the means justify the ends!
I know ... you're absolutely right.  Guilford has an old dorm (students traditionally earned part of their board by helping with chores:  cleaning, laundry and meal preparation) named Mary Hobbs that's undergoing a $2,000,000 renovation because the sentimental value among the alumnae who've lived there is so high.
