Oakwood was a good team with a lot of speed. Miami East just couldn’t match Milton’s speed and athleticism.Van Noord is a concern due to MU struggling with Pass protection. I’m sure NW will take advantage of youth in our secondary. I wouldn’t be surprised if Milton doesn’t try to control the ball with long drives to keep the ball out of VanNoords hands.I don't think much can be read into NW at this point as both teams they've beaten have been pretty weak. Milton's wins have been far more impressive IMO and I would favor them by a few TDs this coming week. We'll know a lot more about NW Friday night.
The only definitive thing I can say about NW is that the Van Noord kid is a stud and has to be one of the best players in this league. The competition so far has been bad, but through two games he has a dozen touches (carries, receptions and kick/punt returns) for about 380 all-purpose yards and 8 TDs. He's dynamite.
For bellefontaine fans how does this offensive line stack up with other really good teams lines? I know they were highly regarded coming into the year and will need to continue to play really well with them struggling to pass the ball
We will not know until we play another team who can match our line. If and when they come across a team that can. It will probably be the same result as Wapak. Everyone already knows if you stop the run against us we will be on the ropes. One thing for sure is Bellefontaine can not hand the ball off to Gross 30 plus times every week. Bellefontaine Qb was able to connect on some 5-10 yard quick passes against Sidney they will need him to build off of that.
I suspect London,Shawnee,Alder will test Bellefontaine's line.
Defensive game plan is pretty simple for Milton IMO -- just avoid giving up multiple explosive plays. Kick/punt returns, go routes, tunnel/bubble screens, jets/sweeps. I haven't seen much evidence to this point that NW can really sustain a drive and grind out a score on a somewhat consistent basis. From the scrimmage and game I've seen it's a big play offense at this point. Despite dominating the scoreboard their first two games they basically split TOP with Southeastern and Northeastern.Oakwood was a good team with a lot of speed.

This should be a high scoring good game. Defense is going to win this game.
Lol Sidney would score 30+ on everyone in the CBC and wapak would beat everyone 14+. Bellefontaine is the 2nd best team in the CBC as far as talent behind London but it’s not that big of a difference. Bellefontaine schedules teams that make them better for league not cupcake games to get fake confidence. London vs bellefontaine week 9 will be for all the marbles including a home playoff gameIs that the same Bellefontaine team that has given up 72 points in 2 weeks?
They were up 34-7 against Sidney at halftime and they put on airplane mode and won 42-34. They gave up 28 to Wapakoneta. People love throwing up numbers without contextIt's 62, not 72. They've played a playoff DIII team and a DII team. Not that big of a deal if you ask me.
