They will be pretty scary this year, I could see them going undefeated if they stay healthy all season. Not many teams will be able to stop them this year especially their defense will be the best in the state. It will be a walk in the park in the playoffs and will be state champs once again. I don’t think anyone will be able to prove me wrong.

A top 10 team in the country would have some struggles with this schedule. Expectations are winning the GCL and state, but being undefeated will be very difficult.

Yes that would be tough for any team, they do have Dunbar and a team from Buffalo that is not very good. Those are two easy wins and LW will be pretty easy also. Moeller and elder will both have a down season so those are 5 wins right there. St X is always challenging no matter what record they have but lasalle will be tough for them. The Winton woods game will be the most challenging for LaSalle and region 8 could be decided in week 2

I'm not so sure the Buffalo game is still scheduled. LaSalle recently posted they were looking for a game after the Buffalo game was posted on Arbiter. Plus, I have seen their schedule, and LaSalle is not on it.

I am 90% sure that Lasalle is working on a week 3 game in place of the Buffalo game

St. X will be challenging but the fact that it is at home reliefs me a lot. The Elder game is what I'm worried about at the Pit for the last game

Iesa Jarmon has just committed to Cincinnati this past week, this DB core is going to be scary. Only one not committed is Jaymar Mundy, which he has quit a few D1 offers as well. This is going to be a scary defense and and just as scary offense with Gi’bran Payne and Zach branam coming back at RB and QB with more assets that will be added to the team such as the transfer from Maryland, I will hold off his name for the time being. Better watch out for these Lancers this year.

Any substance to the rumors over the last year that LS could move back to D1?
We can thank Roger Bacon for that. If you recall they sued the OHSAA about their competitive balance number and they case was settled out of court with an expanded area where no one gets added numbers. The settlement helped all Catholic high school in Cincinnati. Of course it won't help St. Xavier, Moeller, or Elder who will stay DI. La Salle's feeder schools now extend for 12,5 miles in any direction from the high school.

LaSalle will stay in division 2. The OHSAA has already moved the appropriate teams in each division due to competitive balance. For football they have to make the decision in the spring because the won’t know the true enrollment until the fall and by then it is too late to move schools from one division to another. Also yes, the Dunbar deal was only two years but they can always extend it if they would like too.

If you look at the article quoted above, Tom Nerl, AD at Mariemont, says the formula to figure out the boundaries of a non public school is now ╚ r² . Any math teachers on here agree with the formula. He claimed his school district is 10 square miles while the non public schools can use 491 square miles. If the formula is correct, I agree that the amount does total 491. You have pi = 3.1416 times 12.4 squared = 156.25 = (3.1416 X 156.25) =490.8 rounded up to 491 square miles.

According to my La Salle math, the area of a circle is pi (r squared). That is what the AD at Mariemont is talking about when he refers to school district boundaries.

Looks like they will log more travel miles than most teams in the MAC (the NCAA conference).
Historically the Canadian teams have not been very good, but it’s good for them to get out in the US if they have hopes of playing in college. I think it’s pretty cool they get to travel all around and play different types of football.

X returns a lot of talent back there were about 7 6 sophomores getting sizable playing time with the offense all being soph and juniors besides Rueve.

On paper, this may be the best La Salle football team ever. They at least match the 2014 team, which should have been 15-0 if not for a hiccup against X. Hopefully they can handle the schedule this year and send this amazing class out with another ring.
