Harding not throwing the ball this year is the equivalent of us not running Clarett on 1st, 2nd, & 3rd down from inside the 10-yard line against Cleveland St. Ignatius 20 years. Fans are still ticked off about that.
In every loss, Harding only started throwing lot after we were down. Now, the play calling last week vs. Boardman was perfect, but the execution early on could've been better. The threat of the pass opened up the running lanes though. If we use that philosophy from that night moving forward, we'll be playing deep into the playoffs.
Looking forward to seeing how all of the area teams fare, which is kinda weird with Mooney being so down. They helped carry the torch for so long, but as I said in my latest game preview, history suggests that they'll be back sooner than later.
