Thought?

This is the 4th meeting between the two schools and 2nd straight playoff meeting. Burg beat them 42-21 last season. Burg is 3-0 against them.

I caught this match up last season and the game was never in doubt.

I can imagine this year will be just the same.

Yeah it's amazing to me how spread out this region is. Garaway is 3 1/2 hrs from Burg, Coshocton 3 hrs away. I understand that some teams are going to have a little farther drives then others and that getting the amount of DV schools into all areas sometimes might be difficult. Seems like though should be able to even it out a little more as the Garaway and Coshocton teams would be better served in region 18/19. Obviously this isn't the only region where spacing out like this happens but in my mind seems like a fix that could be made without having high school teams traveling 3.5 hrs to get to a game in round 1.

Burg has looked VERY vulnerable the last 3 weeks! I would not be surprised to see a loss in the first week! However I wouldn't be shocked to see a nice journey through the Region like last season.
What I do know Burg best get there crap together and play ball like they have the first part of the season to get to that level again!

Very interested to see the stats on the West game, one thing I've said ever since I watched the Jackson game was that I thought Burg as vulnerable against the run and it was something that needed to be shored up. Waverly hit some big plays in the running game. Last I seen Ridgewood they were a running team. Take away the 27 points Ridgewood gave up to Garaway, which was Garaway's lowest output, Ridgewood only conceded 21 points in the other 9 games on defense. This includes 6 shutouts on defense. I don't think Ridgewood should be taken lightly and I'm sure the coaching staff will have them ready and get the kinks worked out as they have a long ways to go and it starts with a tough matchup against Ridgewood. I like the Burg in this one by 2 scores in what could be a lower scoring game them some might predict.

Seems to me Burg has not been making it rain in the passing game the last couple wks....I could be wrong stat wise tho....Seems like they are forcing the run game. Did Tanner Holden get any catches last night?

Burg is fine. Burg still has lead in every statistical category. Score are indicative of slow drives, penalties, and play calling.

look at the stalled drives last night! Or the long runs that are given up! Seem like something has changed in the gameplan or playcalling
And yes Holden had I know of 1 catch but can't remember if he had more than that! Which is another BAD thing!

If it's this close. Wood's schedule isn't impressive. I look for the Burg to refocus now that the second season is here.

I believe Burg pulls it together for a long playoff run...

Couple Key players that have been out get back next week...

I think fans got spoiled when they were putting up scores against Ironton and Portsmouth of 42-0 by HALFTIME early in the year...

They also got spoiled when they have beat teams of late like Oak Hill 42-0 and Valley 42-0...

Burg will be just fine. Best Coaches in the State, Hardest Working Players in the State, Best Supportive Community in the State... Burg will be ready

Intensity will change I believe with the staff and kids, just human nature to be "comfortable" during the last couple games.

One thing about it there is a switch for the second season, and I believe they will flip it on in a week.

You can have 1000yds offense but if you keep turning it over and keep failing to score when your in the red zone it's going to catch up with you when you play good football teams. Qb and wr's need to get on the same page, very out of sinc last night.

Wheelersburg is good, but not even close to last year's team on either side of the ball. So far they have out athleted the teams around here. They will make a nice run, but they aren't what fans made them out to be.

What some fans "made them out to be". Plenty of people on here have said this team is no where near last years team.

Neutral observers would not necessarily disagree with this assessment, let's see if there is another gear this group has, if not point well taken.

I'm so embarrassed by this comment. I can see the west fan saying that but I find it embarrassing that burg fans are saying it. I mean wow! They went 10-0 in the regular season, beat every one they've played by at least two scores, and all people have to say is they are nowhere near last years team. lol they haven't lost a game!! I mean the statement is ridiculous

I agree woby Wheelersburg just went 10-0 in back to back years for the first time since 1973 and 1974 I believe yet that doesn't seem good enough. Trying to compare last years team to this years is like comparing apples and oranges.

2016 Burg 10-0 Scored 387 Points, Gave up 82 Points against the ten teams with records of W 50- L 50 26.5500 Joe Eitel Ave.

2015 Burg 10-0 Scored 410 Points, Gave up 74 Points against the ten teams with records of W 52- L 48 26.5192 Joe Eitel Ave.

I contribute the minor statistical differences above to the 2016 Burg Teams having 42-0 leads at halftime and having 2nd/3rd strings not scoring as much/allowing other teams to score more. Early in the year, in the Portsmouth and Ironton games alone, Burg could have put up 70-80 points in those games if they wanted.

Moot point. Both 2015 and 2016 teams are excellent and I anticipate 4 and hopefully 5 playoff games this year. And definitely 5 playoff games next year.

GO BURG!

No harm man.
I"ll be honest I'm not a huge stat guy. I'm more of an eye test guy. I don't think this team is bad, it's not easy going 10-0. Everyone associated should be very proud of this team.

I agree we should all be proud. You can break it down and see O line is not as big this year, we've had a couple key players out lately...there's a million ways to look at it. Both finished 10-0. I think that this team has challenges just like the 2015 team did and we will be rooting them to go as far as they can!
