Alter vs. Fairmont - Thursday August 23rd

Just wanted to wish my nephew, a Senior playing for Alter, a great game and final season with his teammates.

Should be a great game as I believe both teams are strong and are expected to be playoff bound.

I'll give the edge to the Knights on this one as they look to avenge last years close loss to the Firebirds.

Pretty quiet on both fronts as to how the scrimmages went.

And agree Alter has the revenge factor, but Fairmont now has the confidence factor with last year's milestone victory.

Itís a push at this point. The knights have a dangerous backfield and a ton coming back, but so does fairmont. Could go either way.

Is Blevins playing? I thought he was out, maybe for the season. The back up is good but not at the same level as Blevins. The QB is good too.

I donít know the status on bivens. I really liked what I saw out of the kid with the dreadlocks and the other tailback. I would not shock me at all if he ended up playing on Saturdays.

This should be a good game if Fairmont's defense can stop the outside runs. They've had some trouble with that in their scrimmages. I think a lot of that has to do with changes that were made on the defensive side of the ball. Offense has been looking really good and really big across the front. Running backs are fast and elusive as well as Miller at QB. Alter has looked tough in all of their scrimmages, especially against Beavercreek. Their RB's are solid and fast. Going to be a great game, hopefully!

Alter is not near as good as people think. I heard that Belmont handled them in their last scrimmage.

Belmont isnt the same program from 5 years ago . I mean thurgood beat alter a few years ago in regular season game. Same coach is now at Belmont .
As for the game I’ll take fairmont . They have more size and depth in size . Their deep with big bodies . My brother plays on d line as 6’4” 215 sophomore , they just bring a lot of depth at you , I think that decides it down stretch . Boy it’s a close one !!!

Before you make judgement. Rember Belmont was undefeated DII last year going in to playoffs. Coach white is turning belmont into a football program like he did with Marshall. I was at scrimmange it was even. Belmont has some big kids. Alter has good talent depth will be issue. Should be a grest game

I am taking all the money people want to lay on Fairmont -3.5 (that spread is my minus the Alter RB factor).

I like that line. However, something tells me Birds by 10-plus. Alter has the talent, but the fresh legs in the 4th will take its toll.

-3.5 to Fairmont? You're crazy! Alter is the definite favorite with that Mizzou QB and the revenge factor. Every drill has been "beat Fairmont" this summer. Alter is no dog.

I agree. I think Fairmont still wins but we've got to remember that last year's game was one play away from being just another Alter win.

People are giving Fairmont too much credit. They still haven't beat any great DIV I programs(losing by one score doesn't count). Once that happens people can start to talk.

It will be interesting to see how physical Fairmont is. 3 years of consistency in the weightroom should really be paying off by now. If they've stalled in that area it's really going to show. You just can't run that offense without a strong, explosive O-line

Fairmont wins by 7+. Bivens is out, and Alter will try to throw the ball which is out of character for them. This season reminds me of Zaire's senior year.

It is funny you mentioned that. I don't know if Alter is making some sort of transition on offense because both QB2 and 3 can both sling the rock. I've always wondered how dangerous they would be with even on halfway decent wide receiver. Before the scrimmages I was concerned about the running back situation. But I see they have two kids that are more than capable of shouldering Bivens' load. But like I said, if it comes down to fresh legs in the 4th, Fairmont pulls away.

This site always makes me feel like i'm taking crazy pills. Alter is loaded, how is this being overlooked? It was even the headline by the DDN/WHIO. Certainly my Birds are an underdog once again this year. As just mentioned they have 2-3 super talented guys who have stepped in at RB, don't feel sorry for the Knights.

Can't speak for everyone ,but certainly the series highlight for many is when the Alter band charges out of the end zone and defiantly crosses the "T" in the script ALTER

The article didn't talk about anyone except Bazelak... All it mentioned was Alter had a lot of seniors. It didn't describe who all these other "superstars" are.

Fairmont's line looks 'doughy' and out of shape. Even if they win this game I won't be impressed.

Gotta be smart during the offseason.

What a game, some how I can watch it in Columbus. Wish Centerville still ran this offense.

Alter played sloppy, too many turnovers. Fairmont’s offensive line did not look good.

Yeah, Alter was clearly in better physical shape. What was Fairmont doing all off season? They look nothing like the old Centerville lines. Fairmont will go 7-3 at best.

I was kind of hoping to see glimpses of the old C-ville teams. Not even close

Fairmont only won by 6 - dang kicker. Alter may be too hyped and Fairmont will be a tough win for GWOC teams.
