So with Summit county heading in the direction of a delayed start what are the odds practices actually begin Saturday?

With all but one of the schools in a Level 1 county on Dewine’s Rainbow of Doom (and WB is in the middle of nowhere, half in Columbiana anyway, and likely doesn’t contribute at all to Mahoning being level 2), the Summit County thing will have no bearing on them.

You'd hope but I think we're almost certain to see new rules and regulations before the 1st, I'm just wondering if it will end up being more guidelines or a postponement
 
Any idea why the success in other sports hasn't transitioned to football? They're not exactly world beaters in other sports as of late but you're right they're not struggling either, you'd think that some of those athletes would be making impacts on Friday like they do at every other EBC school but for some reason that isn't the case
I will add to what Lions Guy said: Minerva won the league title in wrestling this past winter. The track/XC and bowling programs have been excellent for several years. All of these programs have sent individuals and squads to state year after year.

The basketball and volleyball programs have been competitive to very good. The golf, baseball and softball programs have been as well.

The outlier is football and Lions Guy is spot on. Minerva doesn’t need to switch leagues, we need talent, depth and a stable coaching staff.

We have seen an emphasis on building up all of our athletic programs over the past 25 years. The former AD Don Spinell wasn’t even a Minerva guy but was handed the keys in the early 00s. The new AD knows the importance of football and I look for things to change soon.

We have been out of state staying with family to help with day care most of the summer and haven’t been around much to hear how the team looks, but I did hear that this is one of the fastest and biggest teams the the lions have had in quite some time- should not be a pushover this year- just hoping the boys get to play..

I hope so too because this group has a chance to win some games this year. Last year it seemed they were getting better every week early in the season and lost a pair of close games. After winning at WB everything went downhill. I can see after losing all these years it’s tough to break the cycle. This will be year two in this system and I hope to see improvement.
