Game Day: Too good to leave

Back in the early days of, I would be forced to stick close to home. Version 1 of the site could only be updated with the right software, and the scoreboard was all manual. Scores came in via email. I would post them on the site.

If I were on the road, I might be able to get my wife to check scores a couple of times. Sometimes I would painstakingly dictate updates to the front page to her so she could upload them. But as you might expect, that wasn’t very popular.

Those days are long gone. The system has been upgraded, now twice. I could update the site from a cellphone if I needed to. But there are too many good games that it only makes sense for me to stay home and work the desk this Saturday.

Too many games to count, too many screens to follow, and probably too much caffeine by the time it’s all said and done.

There are the three games between Top 25 teams — that’s obvious. Wittenberg faces Allegheny at 11 a.m. my time, on DirecTV channel 659. (This is why I have the Sports Pack, right?) Springfield and Alfred face off, Hampden-Sydney faces Salisbury, etc., etc.

Let us know what you’re following and what you’re seeing on game day here in Week 4.

  1. What-a-day What-a-day gonna watch and or listen

    Salisbury “W”
    Alfred “W”
    Hobart “W”
    Ithaca “W”


  2. Allegheny standing tall in the early going against Wittenberg. Stopped the Tigers on fourth-and-short at about the Gators’ 30, then later forced a 33-yard field goal which was wide right.

    7-7 late in the half.

  3. Besides my son’s GCC Wolverines, will be rooting for the Wittenberg Tigers, on which my nephew Eddie Vallery plays. Here’s hoping they make the right adjustments at halftime.

  4. They did block a punt and kicked a field goal to take a 10-7 lead.

    Some good games kicked off at 1:30 p.m. ET, including Thomas More-W&J, Wesley-Capital, Otterbein-Heidelberg, Franklin-Defiance.

  5. Wesley moves ball inside 10 but missed FG on first drive. Wesley then scored on a reverse on the initial play of the second drive 7-0

  6. Ouch. Waynesburg has jumped out to a 14-0 lead with 3 minutes left in the first quarter on a GCC turnover and a couple penalties.

  7. I’ve never watched Allegheny on TV before, this is awesome.

    I think they can come back … this is a great test.

  8. Fun to watch, isn’t it? Wish they had a couple more cameras and that the announcers knew a little more about Wittenberg and the playoff structure in D-III, but oh well.

  9. 73 yard pass to Blaine Miller (longest Wolverine pass since 1997) gives GCC its first score, but they trail 21-7 with 7:18 left in Q2. Good to see a breakout.

    Come on Witt. Keep ’em off the scoreboard.

  10. Back to back TDs for Wittenberg and the Tigers lead 24-14 with 8:20 left. Zoeller has looked alright for Wittenberg but has missed a couple wide-open receivers on deep balls. Also DVRing this game so I can focus on it later.

  11. Capital holds Wesley on a 4th and short. Capital marched down and scored. Wesley blocked PAT . Wesley scores next series 14-6 Wesley 3:22 til half

  12. Waynesburg up 28-14 at the half, Wolverines can’t move the ball on the ground but seem to have figured out how to make the quick pass work. Waynesburg’s relatively small dline seems to be very, very effective.

  13. OK, thanks. Too close for the Tigers though… they struggled more than I would have thought. As is GCC with Waynesburg.

  14. Wesley keeps answering But the penalties are still adding up… I fear Coach Drass will have a longer post game chat with the team than he had last week!!!Wesley scores on a catch and run by Knight 28 -13 Wesley
