Hate to see Guilford cancel another game,but  being safe is the best way. Missing stats from two game could easily take 8 to 10 sway from Bell's career total as well as the yardage.
I just looked at Davidson and Guilford's schedules their only open date is Nov. 3 and Guilford's is next week on the 22nd. The Quakers may not play for 3 weeks and only have one game heading into ODAC play and Homecoming on the 29th.
We're open this Saturday. Maybe we could meet somewhere in the middle and finish the 4th quarter?

I'm not sure what to think at this point. Into the third quarter it seemed like we were in control. We got the turnover to start the third and drove for a TD to make it 28-13. Then BSC drove inside the ten but we stopped them on 4th and goal at the 11. From there on it was a nightmare that was all BSC. Our offense stopped executing and the defense started giving up these long bombs and BSC scored 28 straight before we scored with 7 seconds left and didn't get the onside kick. Glad we have the open date next week so we have two weeks to stew over this and find a way to fix the mistakes. Hopefully we can get things straightened out.

Go Hawks!

SO ready for Saturday to get here, at home against BSC under the lights. If our offense can approach what they did last week then I think we will be okay, especially if the defense can correct some things and put together a good game.  It's Birmingham-Southern, though, so if we aren't sharp they can always cause us problems.

Go Hawks!

In other stuff to gripe about, I'm not sure what's up with the Montgomery Advertiser but there has been almost no coverage of Huntingdon or Faulkner this season. I think we both had a single article about the first day of camp and small game write-ups on Sundays. In the past they have had season previews the week of the first game and game previews on game days along with videos with coach and player interviews on Wednesdays. All of these things are still there for Auburn, Alabama, Troy and Alabama State but zero for us. They still have plenty of high school coverage but I guess something had to get cut and we were it.

I'm not sure who decided to even send the teams onto the field when they did. It was lightning as bad at that point as it had the whole time. Sure wish we could have finished it.
There's no way I was getting all the way to Alabama tonight at this point. Decided to just stop in Salisbury and start fresh in the morning. I'm glad we got to speak and thanks for the campus tour. That was cool. Good luck to Guilford the rest of the season.

This sucks. We wait 3+ hours then in a 20 minute stretch go from headed onto the field,called back off the field, to game canceled, no contest.

Two hour delay so far at Guilford. They have lights so I guess we can keep waiting.

Enjoyed the scrimmage against Berry last night. The defense showed some good things overall. There were a few breakdowns where we gave up long plays but I didn't see anything that can't be fixed over the next two weeks. I'm not as worried about linebacker as I was. Some of the returning guys looked good and a couple of the first year guys look like they can play.
Offensively the line looks strong and we know we have good receivers and three strong RB's. All three of the returning QB's made good plays but there were also mistakes. Still waiting for one of them to separate from the pack. 

Then there's this that I found out about. It was put together by one of our LB's, Casey Kropp, and is pretty awesome.

We have some interesting Week 1 match ups in the USAC this year. Not many that are going to end favorably for the USAC or be an ESPN Instant Classic, but interesting nonetheless.

-Huntingdon @ Guilford. HC makes the trip this year. Surprised me a bit with last year's score and the way the season turned out for the Hawks and Quakers. It's hard to bet against Papa Turk. I think HC gets it done this year.

Remember that those first 2+ games we just weren't a good football team. We were very lucky to beat BSC then sometime in the middle of game 3 against NC Wesleyan the defense started coming together and making plays and got it turned around. Hopefully we can find that groove a little quicker this year. We do have a big question mark at linebacker as two starters from last year, Brandon Williams and Linell Tarver didn't come back. We have good experience back at most other positions so I think we will be okay if we can get LB taken care of. I'm eager to see how the QB race works out with the three different guys who got playing time last year. I assume we're scrimmaging Berry Saturday but haven't seen or heard anything so I'm not sure.

Huntingdon had over 140 report today including 76 returning players. Practice starts tomorrow.
Now I begin the process of refreshing the roster web page about a zillion times a day until the new one is posted. ;)

Go Hawks!
Hawks88, are you making the September 1 trip to Guilford?  Let me know your plans.
We're still coming. I've got a room booked but that is about as far as my planning has gotten right now.

Even though I played for a rival team that battled Berry for championships in my last two years, I have to admit the 2017 season ring with the blue effect looks pretty cool! Attached for your viewing pleasure...
I like that a lot. That's a really nice ring there.

Yeah, Brevard is a pretty small town, not much there. We spent a couple nights in Asheville and just went into Brevard long enough for the game.

I was hoping that our coaching staff had made it through the off-season without any turnover but it looks like DL coach Landius Wilkerson has moved to Jacksonville St to coach DE's. He'll be tough to replace but Turk has done a great job plugging in new guys in the past so I expect he will find someone who can come in and do the job well.

Go Hawks!

Huntingdon hasn't published the schedule yet but this is what I assume from the other schedules that are posted. Methodist is already listed on other schedules for 10/13 and 10/27 so that only leaves 9/29 for us to play them. LaGrange has Greensboro on 10/13 and Brevard on 10/27 so I guess it would be safe to assume those are flip-flopped on ours. This also assumes that all home/aways from last season are reversed. I do know homecoming is set for 10/27.


1-Sep      at Guilford    1:00 PM
8-Sep      vs. Birmingham-Southern    7:00 PM
22-Sep      vs. Thomas More    2:00 PM
29-Sep   ??   at Methodist *    
6-Oct      at Maryville (Tenn.) *    1:00 PM
13-Oct   ??   Brevard *    
20-Oct      at Averett *    TBA
27-Oct   ??   Greensboro *    
3-Nov      at N.C. Wesleyan *    1:00 PM
10-Nov      vs. LaGrange *    2:00 PM
Hawks88, I hope you are able to make the Sept 1 trip to Guilford.
That's still the plan, Hasa. Planning to make the Guilford and Maryville trips for sure. We haven't missed the Maryville game since the first one in '04. Averett is the only conference school left that we haven't been to yet so we may do that one too.
