Includes Football, Men's and Women's Soccer, Volleyball, and Field Hockey. All sports combined.

Didn't include the non-team sports.

2014: 10-33-3
2015: 17-31-0
2016: 10-36-2
2017: 7-37-4

Clearly going backwards.

This is a truly terrible W/L record. I don't think it is attributable to our athletes.
A clear reflection on the administration.

The W-L record is attributable to the athletes to the extent they are not as good as their competition. It is not their fault they are put in a position with little chance to win.

I've followed Davidson sports closely since the fall of '73. We've never been consistently good in anything other than men's basketball, tennis, and golf. We were good in golf and tennis when they were largely upper-class non-scholarship sports. Once just about every school started taking golf and tennis seriously and offering scholarships, Davidson began to struggle in those sports.

I bet our best Fall Sport record was in 1992. The men's soccer team was great and the football team had a winning record. I don't know how women's soccer, volleyball, or field hockey did that Fall.

We are in a campaign to raise $425,000,000. I would hope some of that money would be devoted to athletic scholarships. No one has asked my wife and me (in person) for money and no one has told us where the money is going, but let's hope it allows us to recruit some athletes who can win a match/game or two.

Terry Holland became Davidson's Athletic Director in July 1990. It has taken until the mid-2010s to begin a campaign to raise significant money for athletic scholarships. We've had 3 Presidents who have given lip service to the importance of D1 athletics to Davidson. It is time for the alumni and fans to show what D1 athletics mean to us.

The baseball team had a great season and suddenly $5,600,000 appeared for scholarship aid. It is more common that the money comes first, then the scholarships, and third the wins, but no one is quarreling with the order of the baseball team's success.

You can designate your giving if you like. That gives them three choices: They can accept the money and use it as designated. They can refuse the gift. They can use the money for something else and be subject to arrest.
