burg absolutely handed it to them hands down. to be fair, greenon had 2 scores called back before the half, so it could’ve been more like 28-14. but again good teams don’t make mistakes like that. i’m sure it will be more of a game next year as greenon will have a better idea who to prepare for. but Burg is still my pick to go 10-0 and make a very deep run.
If Rice had a big WR to throw to that would make a big difference. I think we would have absolutely put it to New Middletown Springfield, hoping we can get to Canton

came oh so close the year with Romero at QB. i remember going to that game at Bellefontaine- wow! i think next years Burg team could be better than that..
I think so too, Forrest relied too much on Kaleb at times. The talent is well spread out now. Hurst and Conley are only sophomores, so we have two more good years. It's a toss up after that

and i completely agree. Anna was the best team by far but Burg had to be #2. gave Anna it’s best game in the playoffs. greenon doesn’t have many big kids, but they do have athletes. i guess you just have to work with what you have.

Agree, I have watched the Davis kid and Benson kid wrestle, wrestlers are generally good football players and those kids are pretty good. Greenon is still 100% more competitive than I've ever seen. It was a game I was nervous about last year

burg had a winning game plan and greenon didn’t, fair and square. it will be much closer next year. i think the greenon confidence was down after losing that one to Fairbanks. but still, burg was good, and they’ll be even better next year. as will greenon.

How can Greenon be better when they lose the Senior class, which was second best to their Junior class? I just don't see Greenon being better next year. Unless they have a stud class of 8th graders coming in. This is not a slam, I truly want to know how you think that.
 
as far as WJ, they had a solid backup running back, but he was no playmaker like jones. WJ having 70 kids on the sidelines almost makes me think they don’t belong in the OHC! but no better league for them besides ours. i don’t mind a trip to west jeff every year or so for sports, nice town for sure.
Gavin Frybarger ran for 680 yards with less than 6 carries a game, he will be a senior. Tyler B also has an arsenal of Jr and Sr receivers back for 2020. WJ will be fine in 2020.

We lose basically 6 kids and the bulk are coming back. With Anna losing so many players this year, I think this COULD be our year in 2020 but who knows
Kicker will be if the rest of the MAC comes back to R24.

West Jeff and Burg are 100% the favorites to win the OHC next year. WLS has a lot of holes to fill (QB, RB, OL, DL). They will be strong in the receiving game, linebacker core and secondary. The projected lack of a line greatly concerns me though, not much size in the halls of WLS these days.

I would make a friendly wager that the Knights see another running clock in that game next year. :)

We've had a few, but I haven't seen them in a long time. PitchinCEO and .....I can't remember his name.... Cade maybe? Both were great members.

I have to think the SE job would belong to AJ Woods if he wants it.
I like Sargent Schultz know nothing just a guess

Bigger question - Since going to 12 teams I get the feeling there is a level of discontentment with the OHC from multiple schools for different reasons.
But since the addition and the north south split it feels different and not a good different. I understand some posters may not know what it was like before the expansion but just a question.

Meh. It's not terrible, but I liked the old format a heckuva lot better. The expansion added some quality opponents for sure. Replacement instead of expansion may have been a better way to go though. There are far too few OOC games in just about every sport.

in my opinion, drop one of the crossovers in football. I made a proposal for what it would look like my way, ill send it to you through DM

I agree on the replacement over expansion in hindsight. Maybe time to blow this thing up and start again? 20 years is a decent life span for a conference affiliation

I don't see the OHC blowing up. it's fairly stable, but some schools are unhappy about 3 crossovers in both the north and south. it prevents some of the monsters in the north from getting enough harbins from an extra quality OOC opponent, and it prevents the teams from the south from being in a competitive game against an extra OOC.

It's more than just crossovers that bother people and more than just football. Big picture visions are vastly different around the OHC member schools.

but being football specific, Fairbanks, West Liberty Salem, Mechanicsburg, and West Jefferson are all happy playing each other. in the south, Cedarville, Catholic Central, and Southeastern are all happy with each other. I guess Greeneview doesn't mind it, but if they are going to be D5 again anytime soon (confident they will) then they can't be playing 3-4 D7 schools every season. Greenon may outgrow it but as a fan I'm okay playing Greeneview in sports, its a nice little division rivalry of two somewhat similar communities. I enjoy the drives to Cedarville but in reality don't like playing D7 teams. When traveling to the North teams, I have enjoyed every trip except triad. Burg, West Lib, and West Jeff are all nice small towns!

I would have to disagree with this sentiment. I consider Flint, MI a nicer small town than those I have bold and underlined....

you have jokes color! but in all seriousness and all hatred for the schools aside, nice communities to visit one or two times a year.

Northeastern picks up Bradford and Southeastern picks up Worthington Christian and Ridgemont. no clue who Cedarville has. Plains probably keeps Fredrickstown and Westfall. Greeneview has Middletown Madison (imagine that game two years ago!) and waynesville. Burg has KR and Urbana. West Jeff has Carlisle and Waterford. Triad has Ben Logan and Buckeye Central. Fairbanks picks up Cardington Lincoln. no idea on West Liberty Salem.
