Multi-Regional Topics / Re: Top 25 talk
« on: Yesterday at 12:15:24 pm »
TQ, I think you might be overrating Randolph-Macon and overlookimg Guilford in your top 25. R-MC graduated four guys who led them for three years. Guilford lost to UW-Oshkosh by three in the Elite Eight and returns quite a lot.

Just something for you to consider for your work-in-progress Top 25.

Thanks, y_jak. 

This is a good example of why I am posting all of this here and asking for feedback.  I want to submit the best ballot I can and I figure with everyone chiming in here I can do that.  "The wisdom is in the room" as one of my co-workers likes to say.

I have a placeholder Top 25 spot for the ODAC favorite.  Has the preseason poll come out yet?  And is there consensus on the ODAC board who the favorite is?  I looked at it as a bit of a coin flip between the two on paper.

Thanks.

No preseason poll yet and very little acticity on the ODAC basketball board. Even the once very active ODAC football board has become fairly quiet.

RMC 34-7 at half, not even that close, RMC has left some points on the field.  Do yourself a favor and listen the the RMC/SVU game, the announcers are very entertaining!

While not a statistically lopsided game it was, nevertheless, a game R-MC was in control of the entire way. Lots of Jacket players, both offense and defense, got in for ample minutes.

Agree that the SVU announcers were entertaining. Unabashedly pro SVU but very honest in the assessment of the game.

RMC (4-0, 5-1) 35-14 over SU (2-2, 3-2).

RMC out gains SU 456 to 292 in total offense.

This felt to me like a more competitive game than the stats and score suggest. Turnovers killed SU -- three interceptions and two lost fumbles. The real killer was the fumble after an R-MC punt put SU on their own 3 yard line. On the first play the SU running back had the ball knocked loose and a Jacket defender picked it out of the air and was in the end zone in one step. The R-MC defense was good all game and the offense got the running game going several times to use the clock and score TDs. SU has a good passing game, just couldn't put it together enough to score more.

^^^ That is correct about Nworah based on his spring 2019 roster bio: https://www.rmcathletics.com/sports/mbkb/2018-19/bios/nworah_james_49e8

Regarding competitveness -- with a few years of watching football under my belt I've come to realize that you should take nothing for granted, always be prepared for something unexpected to happen, and never underestimate the other team's motivation to win. It's not always about which team is supposedly more talented. Actually, I think this applies to most sports -- both individual and team.

Like R-MC and Ferrum last week, Guilford went with a first time starting QB today. He was fast, quick, and shifty and saw the field well. The Jackets were up 17-14 in a really good first half. GC received to start the second half and was putting together a good drive, when on a run by the QB the ball was punched out by a Jacket defender around the 7 and rolled through the end zone for a touchback and R-MC ball on the 20. The Jackets drove for a TD, then added another TD and a FG to make it 34-14 before the Quakers put together a TD drive to make it the 34-21 final with just under 4 minutes to go. All-in-all a pretty good game. Guilford seemed better than their record and some of their scores might suggest.

Seems that after a run of success there is less tolerance on the part of fans for a down period in a program's fortunes. Wasn't Bridgewater in the national conversation a decade or more back, but now is back to a more typical ODAC program? They still have the same head coach, right. Are BC fans upset by this?

Webster roster is posted: https://websterathletics.com/roster.aspx?path=mbball

Seven freshmen, no transfers. The tallest is 6'4", shortest is listed at 5'1" but is pegged as a guard/forward. Something off there. We already know about the absence of Nigel Wilcox. Ethan Hughes, a solid, tenacious player, will fill some of that void. With the other returning players and some help from the newcomers it should be a good season. Yes, Nigel would make it even better. Still, this is a good team.

If everyone that was supposed to come back for Fontbonne came back, this schedule would be really sad for a team with great potential... but many chose not to return...

Many chose not to return?  How many are we talking about?

5 from my writeup this summer rating returning groups from each school...  DeLine, Ottwell, Leonard, Moliva, and Anthony Jones... I have had a brief communication with Anthony Jones, a young man who felt school and career needed to take precedence in his life....These 5 did not appear in the 2019-20 roster...

I don't remember all those guys, but I do remeber DeLine and Otwell. DeLine almost single-handedly beat Webster at FU last season. Tough losses for the Griffins.

For anyone interested I saw this video of the BC announcement posted on twitter: https://youtu.be/2HXv7h32qGM

The first four minutes are the formal part, the last two minutes are a quick interview with Coach Enright.

One interesting thing I notice is that Prin, Eureka, and Mac are each playing Knox and Monmouth. So for those, like me, who like to consider results against common opponents as a way to expect how a game between two teams (EC vs Mac or Mac vs Prin for example) might go, this is useful info. I'm sure there are other common opponent examples to watch as several play Wash U and some SLIAC teams are in the same "classic" so will also have common opponents. Thanks for doing this.

P.S.  If you can edit the post to add a return at the end of the Eureka write up it will make it easier to read the Mac write up.

^^^ I missed some of the broadcast so didn't hear an explanation for the QB change. I only caught one comment that makes me think it was a coaching decision and not an injury to Estes.
