2020 Standings:
Kenton Trail:
Alder (7-1)
London (6-2)
Shawnee (6-3)
Bellefontaine (2-5)
Kenton Ridge (1-5)

Mad River:
Graham (7-1)
North Union (7-3)
Indian Lake (4-5)
Ben Logan (2-6)
Northwestern (1-5)
Urbana (0-7).


Who do y'all think will be able to take each division and make a run in the playoffs. Remember, as is it will be the top 12 making the post season.


No word that I have heard from the coaching search at Indian Lake. Word is they were going through 6-7 applications, including one from out of state. (I dont know if that is the number they received or if that is what they whittled it down to after a quick scrub). Smart money is on their long time OC.



So CBC-ites, what say you?

The senior class at London this year will be extremely talented. Playoffs may be a rough go as R11 seems to constantly be loaded and London is always very one dimensional offensively. They've really gotten doinked creeping across that D3 cutoff line the last couple of years. If they were still D4, this coming year would have probably been the 5th straight year they would have been a top-3 team in R16 along with Wyoming and Massie. Wyoming especially is a bear every year, but between the class that's currently seniors and the guys that will be seniors this coming fall (especially if the RB stays healthy), I wouldn't have been shocked to see London break through and make a final four.

London should win the KT. JA takes a small step down and all the others improve.

NU is the frontrunner in the MR. Graham loses almost all production to graduation. IL and NW will be solid. BL and Urbana continue to struggle.

Crossover games continue to be one-sided. Maybe 1-2 wins for the MR division.

I agree with thevoice, OC should get the job.

Alder was actually 8-1 last year :) (6-0 regular season, 2-1 playoffs)

NW has a long way to go to be solid. They were not good a year ago.

Alder returns a good portion of their defense, Heisler at RB, Jonathan Keith at WR. They will be fine. I hate that London isn't week 10.

Concur.
I was interested to see their good RB but apparently he went onto greener pastures last year? I still have to get used to kids doing that.

Not sure what you mean. Proxmire was a SR in 2019, Heisler took over last year and was a JR.
I thought they had a good RB who had transferred, or was I wrong? That is what I was told at least.

If I am wrong, well, I usually make it until Novemberish before I make my first mistake.

I vaguely remember this too, you are talking about NW, not Alder, correct?

Yeah.
NW.
Rolling train is smarter than I so he is probably right but I swore when I asked about a good RB they had the season before I was told he transferred.

I’m sorry, I thought you were talking about Alder. yes, NW did have a running back that transferred to Springfield before last season. My bad!

It was quite early in the year for me to be wrong.............

if Bellefontaine gets the chance I think they will jump ship to the WBL. but that's a big IF
I say they wouldn't.

They left for a reason. Doubtful that reason has been fixed, considering it was probably travel.

Unless they're actively talking about how bad they regret leaving, they had their shot in the league and ditched it.

I expect IL to name their coach at the BOE meeting next Tuesday.


Bell ain't going to the WBL. They have a chance to dominate where they are at in the coming years, and that would not happen in the WBL.

Bellefontaine is a charter member of the CBC and has zero desire to go anywhere.......They were mentioned as logistically a "fit" if Defiance left (former WBL member) or if the CBC fell apart (not happening)............The CBC as constructed will exist for at least another 5 years. I would bet on it. Schools don't like conference changes unless necessary, and it's not necessary right now.

Unless something goes bananas with the OHC, I think the CBC will get through the 2020s with this current lineup. Possibly further.

I think once again Alder & London will battle for the KT title.. Moving that game to earlier in the season makes zero sense, bad decision by the CBC not sure I could understand any reason to make that move.

London will probably be the favorite based on who they have returning and if the QB who was hurt last year is ready to go. One could argue they have under achieved based on everyone's expectations since these upcoming juniors and seniors plowed through teams during there jr high school years. A couple of key injuries haven't helped either the past 2 years on offense. This could be there year.

Alder will have some big holes to fill on the offensive side of the ball (QB, OL & WR). Replacing a 3 year starter at QB isn't going to be easy. Defensively they return 9 on that side of the ball.
