I thank this will be a really good game. I really don't know that much about granville. But I do know western brown has a monster of a offense.

I have a Nephew that plays on Granville
I see Clinton Massie and (Monroe out of Dayton )beat them at the beginning of the year
From what I heard They have the Nations leading passing yards Qb Don’t know about the competition team they play
Granville will have to blitz and have a lb spying on him on night because he passes and runs
Also
Defense I heard is ok

I’ve watched some Western Brown the past few years. But don’t know a whole lot about Granville. I know Western Browns offense with that Novak kid is pretty good. They put some decent numbers up on quality teams this year. But in my opinion if you stop their offense then WB is gonna have a tough night. That being said I don’t know much about Granville so I could be wrong

WB lowest point total for a game this year is 33. And they won that game. Their defense has improved quite a bit over the season. Key to beating WB is being able to run the ball and control the clock. Their two losses this year the opponents threw the ball a total of 7 times.

Obviously shutting down their offense would be the best bet. But I'll believe it when I see it.

Massie ( run,run ,run beat them and Monroe
 
Massie and it's wishbone is pretty hard to stop. They do what they do and they do it almost to perfection. Wb has trouble with the wishbone. And monroe ran a wing t... (I could be wrong I can't remember) that being said... wb has gotten alot better agenst the run. They make adjustments. Like the Bellefontaine game. The reason was destroying wb in the c gap. The linebackers could not get over and fill the gap. Gave up 20 points in the first half then shut Bellefontaine out the rest of the game. When wb played jackson they gave up 21 in the first half. In the second half they gave up 7. I'm not completely forsure but I thank jackson had 300 yards on offense and I thank just a tick over 100 of them yards was passing...... also when teams run out of the gun wb is alot better at stopping the run game. They will take a few punches from the other team then make the adjustment. If a team runs in the a gap out of the gun wb is pretty good at stopping that. They do a good job at stopping b gap runs too. This is only if a team is running out of the gun. If it's comming from the wishbone.. we'll that's another story.. in all I thank Granville will score. If Granville has alot of players going both ways it will be tough because your looking at having to play around 100 downs... I thank the winner of this game will have to put mid 40s on the scoreboard.

So am i hearing correctly, Granville QB tore his ACL? That is very unfortunate if true. I've seen limited film in Granville but they play a physical style of fb which historically gives "Anderson Light" Western Brown fits

I heard their starting QB was out for the season the week for the London game, and he wasn't listed as a starter last week - but then he was out there on the first play.. Seemed to be moving okay, then went down for good in the second quarter. If he'd alread torn his ACL the previous week, then he must have a lot of toughness for even trying to play last week. Second-string guy seemed to have enough poise - maybe not quite as quick, but looked like he was mentally prepared. Hard to say how he'll do for an entire game.

I'm not an x's and o's guy, but I watched the Granville-London game last week, and my impression was also that they are very physical. Is that something like a double-wing offense? All I know is it's quick, hard-hitting, and that running back they have seems to be like the Energizer bunny. I think he carried the ball on 9 out of every 10 plays.

Again I’ve heard it wasn’t a acl injury misdiagnosed that’s why he played but landed back on it and hurt it Never know he might be back this weekend

I don’t think it matters what offense you run against WB although they are not as good at defending the power run game. The goal of WB is to get 2-3 stops per game. Doesn’t matter to them if it’s punts, turnovers, downs. Anything to give them more possessions than you. They are betting that their O is better than yours. To make that backfire on them you will have to force your own strategy on them. Massie’s was to eat clock but they still had to score TDs. Also, they gamble a lot on 4th down. Getting a stop or two on 4th Will go a real long way.

Monroe had an interesting game-plan. It appeared they knew they couldn't stop WB, but they also knew that WB couldn't stop them. Monroe pouch or short kicked all of their kickoffs, giving WB a short field and the opportunity to score quickly so they could get the ball back and grind out the clock. I think the final score was like 63-58 Monroe and Monroe's fullback set a school record with 403 yards rushing in the game.

So your saying WB has a hard time stoping the run

I like Granville in this one….WB certainly had the easy side of the bracket…Hartley destroyed them a year ago. Granville is pretty physical.

I watched the WB/Massie game and the personal fouls in the first Q were unreal - five of them total?
 
It is an ACL tear- it is not misdiagnosed. The injury at this point is a level of pain tolerance- for his sake I hope he does not try to give it a go Friday. Granville is small and lacks size on the lines but are very fast on the outside. The running back can break one at any point and the receivers are very fast. The backup QB is young and inexperienced but can make most of the throws Crouch could make, but isn't the leader and risk taker (yet) that Crouch is. I have attended every game this season and look forward to this matchup as well.

That massie game was a bit of an exception to the rule as far as behavior goes. I've never rooted for massie to win a game(respect the heck out of them but they've whipped my butt too many times for me to want them to win lol) until that game. It looked like they went out thinking they were going to "Bully the Bully" and it backfired.

I would agree - probably had something to do with Massie laying 86 on them the years before. WB didn’t act the same against Wilmington when I watched that.

I could be very wrong, but I see Granville controlling this one.

I haven't seen enough of Granville to make a decision. All I could find was week 2. And I doubt either team is much like their week 2 versions. Looked like Granville operated out of the gun mostly which WB seems to have a better handle on defensively than an under center approach. I'm curious to see if a defense can hold WBs offense to less than 30 points for the first time this year. WB isn't afraid to play physical this year(hasn't always been the case) so just being physical isn't necessarily an automatic win.

Just for wanting to see two SBAAC teams make state semis im picking WB haha

Jackson fans were right
Wb holds a lot every play
WB May Hold...Granville Oline just Tackles. No reason to Hold Just Tackle.
Zebras again must have been Fed by the Granny’s.
There is No Question we must get Replay in The a Tournament.
