Week 8 - St Ignatius

Status quo will have the Crusaders losing with a running clock. What BIG changes would you make to get results from a roster with at least 6-7 D1 athletes. Anything is on the table.

How do you come up with 6-7 D1 players? I count 4 maybe 5: Hawkins (Penn State commit), Carpenter (offers from just about everyone), Bates (UK commit) and Wills (Air Force). Thurman is a stretch but I believe he has some mid-major offers. Who am I missing?

I add in Szabados and Baby Gronk #11. Also you could add in Khayo as he will be a MAC kid for sure.

If your gonna run Khayo as a running back between the tackles like they did against Elder (which was a disaster) Why not give him a full back with double tights. that way when he bounces outside, there isn't all that traffic out there we create with the spread formation we run every play.

also heard there is a good chance Hawkins is done for the year based on his dads recommendation that this team isn't worth the comeback. If true I am truly disappointed. hope my info is WRONG! think what a buzz it would cause if you gained big Hawkins going into the last three games. Cmon Hawk, your boys need you.

Thurman was a Navy commit,

Kayo had a visit to Northwestern last weekend. the soph Valentine will be a d1 guy.

Pretty sure Qb Mitch McKinnze had a visit to Austin Pea a few weeks ago (technically d1)

So add that to Bates, Hawkins, Carpenter, TE clark, willis and there is apparently a Rutgers lacrosse commit on the squad so thats 9ish. Willing to bet there will be a at least a dozen kids from this team to play at the next level.

They showed flashes of being able to run the ball well off tackle with Thurman. I would run alot with Thurman, hold the ball for as long as possible and shorten the game.

Long timely drives are a must early in the game for Moe. Hopefully coach Majors can dial up some offense that moves the chains. I

Hawk played his entire Junior season with a torn rotator cuff and labrum... I'm sure he'd be playing if anyone would clear him. Not sure what his dad has to do with it either. GBM

Assuming no other injuries and the crusaders get hot, which two games are most winnable out of the three they have left? Im guessing WW and St Eds.

2017 Moeller 41- St. Ignatius 20 * Iggy Ranked #10 In USA Today

Hell, the more I think about it, tonight may be #1

I'm with you.....never saw that coming. Credit to the players and coaches. They played inspired football. They had a chance for "here we go again" when Iggy's cut the lead to 26-20, but they came right back and responded and didn't let up. To have a WR play quarterback with limited throwing makes it all the more of an amazing performance. It could have been worse....they had the ball inside the 5 yard line twice and didn't get points. Great all around performance. Did McKenzie get hurt last week?

Have heard a couple of different answers on McKenzie, not sure exactly, but heard back injury.

Have to give credit where it is due. They made us all very proud last night.

Not a concussion. Happened during practice last week plus he actually took a few snaps during the St. I game, wouldn't have been cleared to do so if under concussion watch.

So whats his prognosis for Eds? Do we have a chance? Do the coaches wave the white flag to get everyone fresh for WW?

From what I can recall, the last time we played well and won in Lakewood was during the Ross Oltorik era. It has not been pretty since then.
