‘86, Minerva has had 5 different coaches since ‘11. It’s an all around failure on all levels and at some point we have to accept that this just isn’t a good team. There is some talent but the kids don’t play hard and give up when they’re down.

I agree with ‘88 that names of players should not be posted. So, you get on and call it a crappy town and trash players and coaches. How much of a Lion are you? Maybe instead of trashing the town and program do something to make it better.
I was not able to watch the game because the stream stopped working for me. I did listen to most of it and the 2nd half was ugly. Seems like once again the Lions are hindered by a small roster and get dominated on the line of scrimmage. The running backs have no room the run and the quarterback has no time to throw. I don’t care if Terry Bradshaw is our quarterback the result would have been the same.
I thought we were going to have a bigger roster and I was told that we had 33 or 34 kids on the sideline and we dress freshmen, just can’t seem to get the kids to come back out. It is very concerning because I think we have 15 or 16 seniors so the numbers don’t look promising next year either . Hopefully the Lions can get something going this year because there are some athletes on that team but it seems like they will be overmatched just about every game.

So I heard Carrolton lines up to kick the winning field goal against Salem with seconds left. The kick was good to win the game and then out comes a penalty flag. Omg. The re-kick failed. Well it was Sr night at Salem.

I got to stream and watch the Alliance- Wb game. Had a few questions maybe some one can answer first I did not see Howard in the game at all and Hartsoe seen him in couple of times on offense with them two on offense adding to Alexander and company I think they would stayed in the game also why is jones 10 yards plus off of McKeever they could of thrown all day to him, evidently WB didn’t see it. the others question I got is Hiller never saw him play defense Other than one play the whole game with 3 min left up by 21 they stick him in the rest of the game Evidently didn’t cross there mind of him getting hurt. I talked to a couple wb parents they said they have a good back up that can throw the ball.

Watch the stream. They come out to kick and salem calls timeout (they kick anyway and it's good), they line up a second time and Carrollton calls timeout. They lineup the third time and actually kick the ball for real this time and it sails wide left

If it's any consolation I've heard both the junior high teams are relatively solid

yes they are. I hope they keep playing and have numbers in a few years. The top 3 classes at the varsity level were very good in 6th grade will big rosters and slowly kids continued to fall off.

Hard to gauge, the records of the teams they beat are 1-8. Improved tho I’d say
West Branch is for real this year. Very dynamic offense. I know Alliance is 0-3 but scoring 48 on them is pretty good and I heard they could have scored more if needed. the EBC is much better this year and more balanced.

I have an idea let’s all jump on the Struthers site an bash all their teams like they feel necessary to do on here. No doubt these two are both liberals
No I’m just coming at you, ever hear me trash Minerva? Carrollton? Alliance? Marlington? Nope you haven’t, who do I come at people who y’all nonsense Because their team finally won a few games and didn’t get a 30 game losing streak broken against them. Is it not fair to say alliance and marlington are having a bad year? And that if you look through the forums all of last season all posters said the EBC was bad minus those 2 teams and Salem. I was simply stating they are obviously improved but that could also be because the teams they played are 1-8 and you got pissy and defensive....... so
Let’s go down this rabbit hole, when’s the last time west branch has made it to the playoffs? When’s the last time west branch has beaten a team that went on to go to the playoffs? Are you going to go back to banging on the coach when things start to go south, and next year will be very south. Are you going to simply disappear because you look like a fool?

A shortened season with basically no off season is going to hurt the teams who are young “alliance-Salem-marlington” and the teams who have a lot of 2-3 year starters will be better prepared the first couple weeks. You cannot do simple math which I’m sad about, you forget your team was 2-8 last season “but we shoulda won we had the talent” give me a break you’re a clown

Good point - from what I hear Marlington is down but Alliance being 0-3 is really surprising. I thought they would walk away with this league with a QB committed to Youngstown State. They lost the lead late against Bedford and getting beat by Marlington was shocking. Salem seems to be pretty young too but just beat carrollton.. I haven't been to a game and some of the live streams have been difficult to watch. But i think most of the teams are better. Carrollton has a good defense and some skill on offense , Minerva still has a very small roster and continues to struggle but they do have some good football players. Canton South has a pretty athletic team and a 230 lb tailback that is a good athlete and physical runner - . They may pose a problem for West Branch and could be a dark horse.

West Branch changed their offense and they can score a lot of points. They have a couple of big receivers, a pretty fast receiver and a big running back. Most importantly, their quarterback is a dual threat quarterback and is having a great year so far. Yes they are beatable but you probably need to score 35 to 40 points to do so. Although the personal battle with TEAMEBC is entertaining, I am not trying t stir the pot. I think Struthers scored 30 something on them last year and they may not be enough this year?? WB can score some points.

But overall the league is better, most of the teams are better but I do agree that the "Big 2" are down this year.

Yep. That’s it. Obviously you must be 2 people ,cause no one person is as dumb as your A....
After the numerous spelling and grammatical errors, you sure have no room to call anyone stupid on this board. We are all dumber now. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
