Why? Do you feel Alter has been avoiding this game? When did you play them last?

Not at all, just can't believe the athletic director and new coach agreed to playing the game. I've always thought the game should be played every year because it's such a huge draw. Although Alter is a Division 3 team, and assuming Centerville beats them, they tend to win 8 to 9 games each year and would be better then playing a Division I team that goes 0-10.

Considering what happened last time Centerville and Alter played it might be smarter if Alter did duck Centerville on a yearly basis.

Alter will have a good chance to win this game. Alter's SR class will be strong in 2018 with Bivens healthy. The Elks lose a lot on offense (QB, RB, top 4 WRs, 3-4 OLs) and 3 D1 DLs.

Fake news... Alter and Centerville are playing a double header series vs two Canadian opponents. Alter and Centerville are NOT playing each other

A D1 team has more to lose than a good D3 in this situation. I give Centerville credit for playing this game and Alter as well for scheduling 2 D1 schools (Fairmont). Alter will likely be better than several of Centerville's usual D1 league opponents. (Lebanon, Northmont, Springfield, Beavercreek, maybe Fairmont)

They have more to lose from a Harbin standpoint.

Getting beat down by a "neighborhood rival" on a yearly basis doesn't do much for the confidence or the superiority complex most Alter fans have.

There is no shame in getting beat by a school with 3x the male enrollment. My guess is Alter will make it close.

As the Dad of 3 kids who went to a GCL Coed school I have no love for Alter. I've experienced a good amount of success v. Alter in my 2 daughters sports and son's baseball but football not so much. LOL

Schedule dates

All of these dates are Friday’s. I wonder if the Boro game will be moved to Thursday again. It’s had great turn outs the last few years being on Thursday.

Male enrollment is of less meaningful value when the few who do enroll are lopsididly loaded in favor of good athletes and good football players who would otherwise be starting for other bigger schools in their home district, but enrolled at Alter to get a good education and play football with a winning program.
Less than a 10th of Centerville's large male numbers ever evn try out for football....Just saying...Smaller private schools with historically successful programs get fewer numbers, but the ones they do get are mostly really good ones.
Centerville will be in trouble with Alter next year...

I have a feeling this may be somewhat true. Arbiter now shows just a game at Centerville, not the opponent as Centerville.

Lose 28 Seniors and 8-10 big contributors. I am expecting next year to be a rebuilding year. Junior class is much smaller 16-18 kids with fewer playmakers. It may be a rough couple years for the Elks.

I know Centerville is building on Chase Harrison's incoming frosh class next year.

2018 Elks

Big congrats to Max Wynn for his Cincinnati Bearcat offer today. He will need to have a big year for the Elks to be competitive this fall.

What a great honor for Max. Glad to see more Centerville kids getting some love from Big Time Colleges. Congrats Max. Who's next?

Based on the 2018 schedule added by Yappi, it appears the Alter vs Centerville game was either a rumor or a last minute no go replaced by some Canadian team. That's too bad, I'd like to see this matchup every year.

Yes, as noted above in December it is a double header with Centerville and Alter each playing a Canadian school. I got it wrong in the initial schedules in December

So we have 2 schools within miles of one another with an open date and rather than play each other, they're inviting 2 Canadian teams down to play a lopsided game of football. Hmm, makes sense to me, said no one!

I don't like the Canadien school games which have been a waste of time. It is an easy win with little or no playoff points. I think playing Alter is a "no-win" for Centerville. If Elks win, we were supposed to win with our D1 enrollment. If Elks lose, it would not be good for the program.

So the ELKS may lose once in a while, however the times they do win would benefit Centerville from a computer points stance. The ELKS have been hurt by playing teams that only win one or two games. Beating Alter on a regular basis would generate needed points as the Knights tend to win 8 to 9 games during the regular season.

There is way more upside for both teams in playing each other vs. a Canadian school.
