I’m pulling for X— but if Elder is going to win, they are going to have to exploit the Ramsey/Nieman advantage versus X’s defensive secondary to the maximum degree— Elder will NOT win by running the ball.What does E have to do to beat X next week? Aside, from playing a clean game, no turnovers and no penalties, what do they need to do to win? Control the clock on the ground and limit X possessions. What else?
Elder will not control the clock on the ground, Hambleton will have to be on his game.What does E have to do to beat X next week? Aside, from playing a clean game, no turnovers and no penalties, what do they need to do to win? Control the clock on the ground and limit X possessions. What else?
That’s a bit strong. X is really good and a solid favorite, but they’re not a juggernaut.Play the game of their lives....X has been getting better every week and are damn good. Hambleton will need to be great to help make it a shootout. X is likely going to score a lot.
this is true and anytime Elder and StX play it is going to be a tough game for each program. one thing StX has going right now is this is the healthiest the team has been all season. TE#1 did do some kickoffs vs Moeller but if he get cleared to go back to TE that will be another big weapon for the STX offenseThat’s a bit strong. X is really good and a solid favorite, but they’re not a juggernaut.
I've just been seeing their QB (whether it's McCaughey or Nolan) putting up big numbers and Elder's defense is going to struggle with that.
I agree about X being the best team in the region, but this isn’t exactly David vs Goliath. Elder was leading the first game up until the 4th qtr.
This is one of things I’ve been pushing for yrs, just want to take a victory lap on that.. Im thrilled Ramsey has decided to play guys both ways as that helped them a lot against Princeton.
He played VERY well. Almost 300 yards passing and 3 TDs. He pretty much exposed the X secondary.I thought Hambleton played pretty well against StX in the first game. It was Elder's Defense, Special Teams, and Ramsey that didn't get much done in that game
While I agree with this, wasn’t the final score 28-14?He played VERY well. Almost 300 yards passing and 3 TDs. He pretty much exposed the X secondary.
X has been the only gameplan so far this year that has made it a point to take away Ramsey’s running. They also have the front 7 to do it.
You28- can guarantee that Specht is going to have a plan for Ramsey and Nieman. And while also getting pressure on the QB.
"I think we have better endurance than them," St. Xavier's Kellom said of the fourth quarter onslaught. "We push harder. We fight harder. That gets the job done. There's nothing like it. Especially in The Pit."
He wasn’t wrong.St. Xavier wins this game, because they have better endurance. They also push harder and fight harder.
