Re: D6 Region 23

First of all, you dont know what 23 looks like yet. 2nd, 23 may be tougher (or was), but when you're beating teams in 27 by 50+ pts, you're probably as good as those teams in 23. 3rd, Lucas & Prep were very good football teams last year, so was Cuyahoga Heights, I dont think Fort Frye or Paint Vall...

Nelsonville will be good. Meadowbrook is a lot bigger. Wheeling Central is like a good AAA team disguised as Single A. Is Magnolia supposed to be good this year?

Best team: Meadowbrook?
I would say Wheeling Central. Meadowbrook returns some but they lost coach.
Yes, maybe them. Meadowbrook has more than double the enrollment, so it's easier for them to reload - if the new coach can get the players to come out.

Yes because in the real world they will never have someone telling them what/how to do a task. Gotcha.

Re: Is the Pitch Count Rule Hurting the Game?

I would love to believe this was true. Kids instincts tell them to throw junk or try and "blow it by" the guy. Kids throwing 70 aren't blowing it by many kids. I think the bottom line is this, coaches want to be successful, if they struggle, parents (for the most part) don't care if little Johnny l...

Re: Is the Pitch Count Rule Hurting the Game?

I think most coaches call pitches simply because they keep track of what pitches have been thrown to each batter. You don't want a catcher guessing about what was thrown last time. If the pitcher doesn't throw a single curveball 1st time thru the order but is effective, then next time thru you're s...

I appreciate the detail in your update. Our local newspaper reported that Boone Jones will be going to Muskingum. Your source says Marietta? I wonder which one is correct.

Re: Best fit for the TVC- Fort Frye or Oak Hill

I may be the only one thinking this, but I think both schools are great fits for the TVC. I just think because of location, Oak Hill should be the 8th team to the Ohio, and if the TVC decided to keep the 9 team format for the Hocking, Fort Frye would be the team to replace Wahama. I know Fort Frye ...

Re: 2019 Cincinnati Reds

The way I look at it: With 162 games in MLB and 16 in The NFL, 10 MLB games are about equal to 1 NFL game. So, 1-4 would be like The Bengals coming out and playing a bad first half in week 1. It's disappointing, but I wouldn't read a lot into it yet. I'll wait another 10 games before making any broa...

Re: Eastern vs Waterford controversy

That is part of the game. In my opinion, if Eastern's coach did in fact have that meeting with the umpire to try and get the darkness call, then he is doing his job well. Aren't coaches supposed to put their team in the best position to win? If that is the case, then getting them the extra time, ma...

Re: Best fit for the TVC- Fort Frye or Oak Hill

Fort Frye would be looking at The TVC out of necessity, not because they want to be in the club. By all means, if Oak Hill wants the "Best Fit for The TVC" trophy, I say we give it to them.

I just love how, no matter how many playoff teams Fort Frye plays, as soon as they get added to our schedule, the peanut gallery informs us they're all hot garbage.

Re: Fort Frye adds WV State Champs to schedule

Interesting, pretty sure a top half finisher in the SOC II lost to them last year!! West lost 52-7 in the first round of the Ohio playoffs, meanwhile only lost by one score to the State Champs in WV?

I might be wrong, but I think this is Coach Henniger's best tourney showing so far? It looks like he'll be returning a pretty strong lineup next season as well.

I hope I'm wrong, but I would have to give the edge to Garaway. Again, hope I made a mistake in not picking Fort Frye. Garaway is the higher seeded team for a reason. Anybody who doesn't favor them better have a great reason. Fort Frye is battle tested and playing their best basketball of the seaso...
