Burg got one game further last season than Ironton and then lost bad to the same team that put Ironton out. Ironton is changing what they were struggling with, now with the majority of the kids working hard in the weight room since the Monday following their loss to Coshocton.

Ironton won't have first year players at Defensive End this year as they had both sides with first game at Burg last year. 400 plus rushing yards came from the DE not understanding how to read to QB fake. If we can improve at that this year, it should be the difference we need to have a good shot at winning. At least this year nearly every player has experience at all positions.
Don't put it all on your DE there. You LB were not the fleetest of foot. Maybe with a little more speed they could run downhill.
Don't forget the secondary either, confused the entire game
I wouldn't consider a 10 point loss bad but I guess thats a matter of opinion
Not really a qb fake, he's reading that end

Why can't we just say we got beat by a better team. Burg adapted to the new style of play and Ironton has stuck with their T formation. The place where they are getting hammered is defensively...the ole 5-2 Cover 2 days have long since gone, especially against Wheelersburg. We need to update the defense and secondary play must improve. I think the offense can be okay, if the kids are in shape to run it right!

Don't tell Coldwater that the 5-2 is out they make a living on it. The problem is the Ironton staff does not know how to teach the 5-2 with stunts and man coverage. They try to teach the 4-3 and when you don't know something it shows on the field. I will say it again it's time for change. When the kids have no respect for the staff and they have earned it. It's time for them to move on.

they used to stunt and blitz all the time out of the 5-2. but rarely ever blitz anymore. the offense is more the suspect as far as evolving. but we get burnt deep ALOT IN SCEONDARY COVERAGE.a good passing team always gives ironton fits.
coldwater is a beast all it's own.

I felt at the burg game last year that the 5-2 couldve worked. A team that throws the way the burg does warrants the extra safety. However I believe the linebacker play was too soft that allowed the burg to tie up the defensive front. Backers have to flow to the ball and be aggressive. The d ends were the only defensive bright spot I personally saw during that game. However the defense improved through out the year and hopefully carry over into this year.

What it came down to in the Burg game last year was outside of one lineman, a corner and a safety, Ironton's players on defense had never played at the position they were playing. Only three kids had any experience. The corner had only been cleared the day of the game. So for Ironton's inexperience to go up against Burg in the first game of Varsity football in 8/11 positions, what happened probably should have been somewhat expected. Anything that could go wrong did. Offensively, the tigers weren't much different. The backfield had one returning starter, while the other three backs had not caried a football since junior high or in one case 4th grade. The line was playing a couple of freshmen because of all of its injuries while the ends were also first year varsity players. This year's team will be much more experienced and looking at the kids who have had injuries, all are doing well. We hopefully have a good group. From what I see it should be a great start as long as they keep up the hard work. Football season is still over 5 months away.

So where did the all world D1 prospects that IBTT spouted about last year sign? Remember "South Carolina wants him bad". Really?

[quote="Buramgerdin"]So where did the all world D1 prospects that IBTT spouted about last year sign? Remember "South Carolina wants him bad". Really?

That kid got hurt early on in the season with a season ending injury. He had played very little in the previous season at wide out in Atlanta. He didn't really get started before he was hurt. The kid had been seen while in Atlanta and was being looked at, he does have very good talent, not much film. One of the others chose to play right away and went to a division 2 school. Very good kid. Others are younger and do have Division 1 schools very interested. We will probably see a couple of nice offers September 1. Hopefully there will be a couple more after this season. Ironton is full of talent again this year. Hopefully everyone is fortunate to be injury free. Looking forward to another exciting year.

Sorry but you have no clue what D1 talent is. There was ZERO D1 talent on the field last year for Ironton, which is why ZERO kids went D1. There are dozens of kids that get hurt and get D1 offers. That is a bullcrap excuse. You just have no idea what you are talking about as usual.

We will see again week 1. Then you will disappear for a few weeks as always.

So you are okay with him blaming one defensive end for the slaughter we watched last year? That is "positive about kids"?

I find that disgusting when 11 guys are on the field making mistakes and getting taken to the wood shed. How you can single out one kid is beyond me. That is not "positive" but instead just ignorant like most of his other posts.

Looking back at Ironton last year, I thorough that the Webb kid and some other big kid that played on the defensive line had d1 size. The kid that came from Georgia had d1 size and speed. Problem was he didn't play that way. I didn't see anyone else with d1 size.

But here are some facts.

There are roughly 37,000 high schools in the United States. There are 128 d1 football schools in college. You have to be extremely talented, fast, and/or have size to get an offer. More than likely most of these kids will just play high school or maybe go play d3. Sometimes a kid will pop up in this area that we can get excited about but it's very rare. Or someone can luck into walking on somewhere.

I never blamed anyone on Ironton's team. The whole team came in not ready for that game. Most of the team was inexperienced. The defensive end you are mentioning was just one of many who wasn't ready. It happened that the Burg team took advantage of that weakness probably more than others. I don't think it would have mattered that game what they did we weren't ready. As I said, only 3 kids ever played the position that they played that game. One of the three who did have experience was cleared the day before the game. No excuses, Burg was the better team that game. Not even close. Hopefully things change this year. The kids are hungry.

I think there were people who tried to explain to you that expecting these kids who hadn't practiced all summer to show up the week of the burg game and dominate the way you said they would was very unrealistic.

Do yourself a favor and consider this friendly piece of advice. Stop mentioning words and phrases like D-1, junior high, and little league in your comments. It will make you much less of a target by both Burg and Ironton fans alike. It hurts me to say it but Ironton got their butts handed to them in week 1 by the Burg in 2016. I have never witnessed such a poor effort to open a season.

Just my two cents worth.

If I remember correctly, the defensive ends name was heard on the loud speaker an awful lot during the Burg game to put the blame on him. That kid played his butt off that game and every game until the end of the season. That kid has great work ethics and never quits.

      I believe they all had great work ethics. 8 players last year game one were very inexperienced. We as a team had a bad game. We did however pick up and come together to finish strong. Now, this season we lost a few real good linemen, a quarterback and a great athlete who could play just about everywhere. I believe this year's team has a much better experience level, hopefully they will come together and play like it by game one.

      Actually IBTT you did blame the defensive end while you you were running your mouth while substituting at school. You are not a coach. Don't talk about other kids. Especially kids who did their best the entire season. NEVER giving up!

      Well let's keep it civil here. Ironton should be ok this coming season. Their backfield is back and the new kid from burg will help. He's an older sophomore, so he's stronger than most sophomores. He's also a good athlete. Ironton will probably find its way into the playoffs. I'm not sure they match up with burg yet but the game should be a closer matchup.

      actually abe the fact that the topic gets so much notice is because for so many years this was the marquee game in southern ohio to start the season out with the playoffs on the line from week 1 , before the divisions got watered down to taking 8 teams. in the not so far away past the loser of this game may miss the playoffs because of losing this game week 1. and be clawing to come back all year as a result praying the other team lost along the way. ----------------- but it hain't no secret the burg has built a clear advantage the last say decade over the tigers. while before 2007, they could do little to near nothing to stop the tigers. in a very lopsided series up to that point in ironton's favor. now since then the burg has owned the tigers and are generally catching up on the series 2 wins a season towards evening the series back out. --------------I think fans on both sides wants this to be a slobberknocker again. it behooves ole bait how the tigers can have the whole offseason to get in shape and prepared for burg and keep layin eggs week 1. and the burg has been without question the better prepared and more physical team of the 2.-------- I hope perhaps we can field a better coached team and a more physical team from the tigers and for their fans that this game will once again be the premiere game to jumpstart week 1 in southern ohio. but a lot, I mean a lot has to change. these are the 2 most successful programs in the south bar none. aside of cincy schools in the southwest. ------------- and I think everybody coaches, fans and everybody else expects a better effort from the tigers. it doesn't matter how many pages it gets to, we're just glad to be talkin football. means we all got the itch. no need of proclaimin any one as a d1 possibility. if they are from either side it'll show. but they are few and far between in these parts. I just want a competitive prepared fighting tiger team that quits using the prehistoric philosophies and formations and plays that we've used since the stoneage. back then they were workin like a singer sewin machine because the tigers were more physical team, and a superior coaching staff. but times have changed as well as formations, it's about keeping people off balnce, not being predictable, and getting the right people in the right places.---------but more than anything being prepared mentally and physically. and maintaining composure, and limiting penalties.

      the fact waverly has 3 posts about their team to date is that waverly has no where near the football prowees or playoff history as wheelersburg or ironton. and before the seop site was basically half were fighting tigers n burgites.

      actually abe the fact that the topic gets so much notice is because for so many years this was the marquee game in southern ohio to start the season out with the playoffs on the line from week 1 , before the divisions got watered down to taking 8 teams. in the not so far away past the loser of this game may miss the playoffs because of losing this game week 1. and be clawing to come back all year as a result praying the other team lost along the way. ----------------- but it hain't no secret the burg has built a clear advantage the last say decade over the tigers. while before 2007, they could do little to near nothing to stop the tigers. in a very lopsided series up to that point in ironton's favor. now since then the burg has owned the tigers and are generally catching up on the series 2 wins a season towards evening the series back out. --------------I think fans on both sides wants this to be a slobberknocker again. it behooves ole bait how the tigers can have the whole offseason to get in shape and prepared for burg and keep layin eggs week 1. and the burg has been without question the better prepared and more physical team of the 2.-------- I hope perhaps we can field a better coached team and a more physical team from the tigers and for their fans that this game will once again be the premiere game to jumpstart week 1 in southern ohio. but a lot, I mean a lot has to change. these are the 2 most successful programs in the south bar none. aside of cincy schools in the southwest. ------------- and I think everybody coaches, fans and everybody else expects a better effort from the tigers. it doesn't matter how many pages it gets to, we're just glad to be talkin football. means we all got the itch. no need of proclaimin any one as a d1 possibility. if they are from either side it'll show. but they are few and far between in these parts. I just want a competitive prepared fighting tiger team that quits using the prehistoric philosophies and formations and plays that we've used since the stoneage. back then they were workin like a singer sewin machine because the tigers were more physical team, and a superior coaching staff. but times have changed as well as formations, it's about keeping people off balnce, not being predictable, and getting the right people in the right places.---------but more than anything being prepared mentally and physically. and maintaining composure, and limiting penalties.
      Win loss wise it was in the tigers favor but most of the games in the 90's and 2000's were usually very close ballgames decided in the 4th Q

      Burg got one game further last season than Ironton and then lost bad to the same team that put Ironton out. Ironton is changing what they were struggling with, now with the majority of the kids working hard in the weight room since the Monday following their loss to Coshocton.

      Ironton won't have first year players at Defensive End this year as they had both sides with first game at Burg last year. 400 plus rushing yards came from the DE not understanding how to read to QB fake. If we can improve at that this year, it should be the difference we need to have a good shot at winning. At least this year nearly every player has experience at all positions.
      Weren't you the one predicting dominating basketball teams for the tigers to. Based on what these current kids had done at the 5-6-7-8 grade level. May turn out but hasn't happened so far

      Ok, but the topic is 2017 YTB, not 1970's-1990's Ironton Fighting Tigers.

      We get it. You WERE good. Got it. Check.

      I think 2017 is going to be a lot like 2014, 2015, 2016. Start 1-3 or 2-2 and finish 7-3ish and squeak in playoffs maybe.

      The time is fast approaching where the OVC games are not even going to be a sure thing.

      JMO, I could be wrong and often am.

      Might not want to let OHSAA know you were in the weight room three days after the Week 11 loss. I am pretty sure there is a 30-day wait period after you finish the sport season prior to engaging in any sort of "open" gym/training/lifting/etc. for the sport you just completed.

      So I have my doubts that happened, or happened with any coach in attendance.

      I agree that's why the series has been so awesome.

      abe I think I have given the burg their props. all I ever been trying to say was both sides want to see these kinda games again. and I hope you all have luck against these new 2 teams you've signed. ironton scheduled like that for 25 years or so as well. but the soc is no stronger than the ovc football wise overall. AND IT WAS A FEW SHORT YEARS AGO LUCASVILLE was beatin the burg.
