Terrier Notebook: Thoughts on the 2014 Football Schedule, Terrier Social Media, Wofford Baseball

Here's a look at some recent news of interest concerning Wofford athletics:

2014 Football Schedule

The Terriers' 2014 home football schedule was not exactly greeted with enthusiasm by Terrier fans.  In fact, especially for season ticket holders, this could be labeled as an unexciting lineup.  Jacksonville, North Greenville, Citadel, and newcomers VMI and Mercer?  Some may call that list "boring." When I see it, however, I see games that I believe that Wofford can win.  (Being a Terrier fan, I believe that they can win every game, but these a little more so.)  Play smart, win the non-conference games, and you have a good shot at a playoff berth, and maybe a SoCon title.

The Terriers will make the trip to Georgia Tech to open the season, and an outing to Boiling Springs, taking on Gardner-Webb in week four.  Road SoCon games will be against WCU, Samford, Chattanooga, and Furman.  Sounds doable.

Terrier Social Media
I was a little surprised by this poll given by  Sure, Twitter updates are informative, but I would've expected a greater push for TerrierVision (YouTube).  This is a great resource that is extremely valuable to me as a Terrier fan.  During football season, they have highlights after every football game, and have been providing some great perspectives this basketball season.  Not to mention, they gave us this amazing Mike Ayers quote: "We fight for that short-haired dog and that name across your chest!"

NOTE: The results of this poll were not final at the time of this writing.

Twitter's new "First Tweet" feature has brought us an unassuming first tweet from Wofford Athletics in 2009: 
"Saturday Baseball cancelled. See you at Noon on Sunday for a double-header vs. Western Carolina!"
Plus, I noticed that their account has been verified since they punched their ticket to the Big Dance (although it may be a coincidence).

Win games, and good things happen.

The Terriers are 15-9 with a 1-2 SoCon record.  Following a sluggish 0-3 start, the Terriers won five straight and have been steady since, including a series win over Longwood, sweeping a doubleheader against Alcorn State, and of special interest, a 20-7 win over Davidson.  Wofford continues a road trip, playing Gardner-Webb, Western Carolina, and UNC-Asheville before heading home against Appalachian State on April 4.
