If the Watterson and CJ games are on the schedule, could have some losses but end up being better prepped for Week 11.

True. Who can we pick up to replace p-town now?
We dropped fairland and north college hill for watterson and CJ is my understanding so far.

I'm personally glad p-town dropped us. Now if we can get rid of fairland and oak hill and pick up someone who will prepare us ol cold h20. I'd like to see a burg - ny series or a burg - acc series

I can't believe that Portsmouth/burg aren't playing now. I hope the ironton/burg series is always a game.

Teams I'd like to see:

Clinton Massie
Cincinnati Indian Hill
Cabel Midland
Ashland Blazer
Chillicothe
Winton Woods--Probably give you a really good Coldwater similarity. However being DII could cause both teams to pause on that as Winton Woods never played bellowed DIII school this year and took on 4 DI. And have a host of DI players with multiple offers

Bishop Watterson finished the year 3-7, and 5-4 last year. Point is signing those teams is good on paper but if they're having down years really does nothing for you. The SOC as a whole needs to improve those are the teams you're playing right before playoff time. That's why the MAC schools do what they do.

a 3-7 Watterson team is also capable of winning a state title as well. I've seen teams like them and desales come in at 4-6 or 5-5 and waltz through the playoffs and win the state. and it's because of their schedules and the ability to draw from inner cities. trust me when I tell you a 3-7 Watterson will be a bounty of points for whoever can take them down.and you are right on point about what you said about the mac. I'd love to see the ovc and soc improving their out of conference schedules and build the teams into powerhouses again.we certainly need to learn from them don't we goose. football in these parts ain't what it used to be.

2007 is a good example play bigger schools go 7 and 3 missed playoffs, don't care for the playoffs anyway always ends badly for local teams.

OHSAA needs to modify the Harbin Points System to include strength of schedule. In the current format you get points for beating the worst team in the state but nothing for loosing to the best team in 15 overtimes. Seems stupid to me

Maybe because the economy in these parts SUCKS to high heavens! In Irontons hayday, they were able to "attract," (cough, cough) talent from surrounding areas, because you could find a job to support your family and they had very good football. Now, Burg is in the same boat, they are relatively small district, with a decent economy and housing market and you get that same attraction! lol

Wheelersburg is a small district so everyone is a few minutes from the school. More kids can play. But they are also close enough to Portsmouth, Minford, Webster, Green, East that kids can easily transfer in. Geographically they are in a good spot. Property values may be high, but they're are no jobs there either.

No jobs, but their proximity to Ashland, Huntington and other areas where their are white collar jobs is the first place most realtors push their high end customers to.

The economy and job loss absolutely plays a role, look no farther then Portsmouth at one point they were a DIII school and now sit within the DV ranks. Teams like East and Burg are perfectly situated to take in players from Portsmouth, South Webster not having football benefits both schools, Green being where they are allows for players to leave there as well, Clay and New Boston. Once the bypass gets built could see more Minford kids take off.

I've heard from several reasonable sources that the burg is in contact with canton central catholic for wk 3 next season. They also think that ironton will follow after next season

Wow you are a half empty instead of half full kind of person huh? I am sure glad that the Burg program and community does NOT have this kind of mindset... The Burg needs a stronger schedule early to improve their Talent and ability to go deeper in the playoffs. The SOC will not always be blowout games for the Burg.

Why would Ironton follow if they do I would fire the AD. This game is a money maker and the fans love the short travel.

still don't understand why portsmouth would drop us from a financial standpoint its not a good move, what other team are they gonna pick up that would bring in the gate that a wheelersburg - portsmouth matchup does, as far as picking up ccc, thats a gauntlet them, watterson, and jackson all in a row. If you lose all 3 does your other 7 ovc and soc schools give you enough points to make the playoffs?

It's close. But the other SOCII teams have to have good years to bring enough secondary points into your 4 conference games or your other 3 non-conference teams better win some games.

You are now experiencing the should we play up to get ready for the playoffs versus the will we win enough games to make it! Lol. This is exactly what Portsmouth had to do, balance their schedule with teams that they can compete with, money isn't as big an issue as you think!

Of course you want Ptown to stay, you beat them plus they get 5-7 wins a year! Lol. What good does it do Portsmouth to lose year in and year out? Losing doesn't make your kids faster or stronger, it does help you see better speed, but if you are losing bad, it's not worth it.

You were the one whining about a tough 3 games (that they havent even scheduled yet) in a row that Burg might not be able to win, and hoping the other 7 games gets you enough points to still make the playoffs! That is the same boat every team is in, if anything, it sounds like to me from you whining that Burg has consistently under scheduled! lol :lol:
