It's just a simple fact of Wofford football: the Terriers like to stage long, meticulous drives that are both time-consuming and exhausting for the defense. When a snag is hit, the defense has to prepare for the fact that Wofford, led by coach Mike Ayers, who "hates to punt," isn't afraid to go for it on fourth down.

Yesterday, something amazing almost happened. The key word--almost--must be recognized.
Saturday, October 25, 2014
The Terriers welcomed VMI, an opponent that hasn't met Wofford since 2005, into Gibbs Stadium this afternoon, as they look to build off of a nice win over Samford last week.
Thursday, October 23, 2014
The last time that the VMI Keydets took the field at Gibbs Stadium, the year was 2005. On October 15th of that year, the Terriers hosted the Keydets from Lexington, Va., in a relatively pertinent, yet non-conference tilt that was won by the home squad, 38-23. While the victory helped bring an unusually vapid and substandard 6-5 campaign a bit of redemption, this game meant something more. It would be the final time that these two teams--squads that had grown quite familiar with one another--would meet until rejoined as conference members once again, playing on a homecoming Saturday a momentous nine years later.

Let's face it. Wofford's win on Saturday against Samford was big--there's no doubting that--and a crucial road conference victory, but in the grand scheme of things, it's going to be tough for the Terriers to bring their efforts into a playoff situation.
Yesterday afternoon, the Terriers were gifted with the addition of a player on offense. No wait, he looked familiar. He was wearing #99. Isn't that star defensive end Tarek Odom? On offense?

In 2012, the Terriers had the ultimate chance. Several teams in contention for a SoCon title fell that afternoon, and the pesky Samford Bulldogs were the only thing in between Wofford and an outright Southern Conference title.

On Wednesday afternoon in Asheville, N.C., Southern Conference coaches and media members named Wofford the preseason number-one team.

Both squads committed five penalties on Saturday afternoon at E.J. Whitmire Stadium in Cullowhee, N.C. The Catamounts' infractions actually cost them five more yards than those brought on by the visiting Terriers. However, a few penalties and the game's only turnover stand out as either big momentum changers or the marking of a turning point in Wofford's chances to win the game.

This afternoon, Wofford looks to continue a good start to their SoCon schedule with a game against Western Carolina, who have an identical record to the Terriers, at E.J. Whitmire Stadium in Cullowhee, N.C.

Wofford put four footballs on the ground yesterday afternoon, and lost three of them. Thankful streaks of momentum were killed in an instant; in the end, The Citadel only needed three yards to win, and had four plays to get it.
But they didn't.
But they didn't.

On a sunny fall afternoon at Gibbs Stadium, Wofford opened their 2014 SoCon schedule against The Citadel. The Terriers have not lost to the Bulldogs since 1998; they are seeking their sixteenth consecutive triumph over the squad from Charleston, S.C.
Friday, October 3, 2014
Wofford and The Citadel, both historically triple option-based programs, will meet at Gibbs Stadium at 1:30 P.M. Eastern, as they both look to start off the SoCon schedule 1-0.

It just so happened to take place on 'Anchorman Night' at Snyder Field.
