Week 4: Steubenville (3-0) vs. Boardman (3-0)

Thoughts on the game?


This will be Steubenville's first test of the season. The running game will be completely different now for Big Red since Jacob Bernard has made his return.

Looking for a good game with a great atmosphere

Boardman's offense is very much improved this year. Line play is better and O'Horo at QB leads the way with some athletes in the passing game. I am guessing it will be a higher scoring game. Looking forward to it !

Special teams in terms of punting is also much improved. Doubt we'll start with a 3 and out followed by a blocked punt this year!

But anyways, really looking forward to seeing Boardman in an extremely hostile environment coming off an emotionally satisfying win. Will be a big test. Hard to gauge Big Red given all of their opponents being out of state but Morgantown seems to be the best of the bunch. And based on a reasonably comparable scoreline in their loss to North Allegheny, I'd venture to say that Big Red is going to be a very tough test for Boardman.

This basically would lock up a playoff spot for Boardman IMO, as I don't see Big Red losing any other game. Also it basically is Boardman's last road game sans Week 7 in Warren...

Fun trivia, the all-time series is tied, and I think Boardman has to be among the few teams with a winning record in Death Valley, especially with an n>1...Check that, all-time series in Steubenville is 3-3...

How many returning starters do the BR return ? I know they lost Reeves who is at Pitt. He killed Boardman last year. Offensively and defensively.

Big Red returns 6 starters on offense and 7 on defense. But like it has always been said. "Big Red doesn't rebuild, they RELOAD"

Looking forward to this one.

Boardman has improved dramatically on offense from last year. Really it's almost like it's not the same team. O'Horo has been great at QB and is a dual threat (avg about 160 passing, 100+ rushing) He has spread the ball to several receivers. They also have got a lot of production out of both RBs - Ieraci and Dominhic Jennings. Jennings is a little more of the power back of the 2.

Defensively they had trouble with the pass last week but I'm not sure we'll see another passing attack as good as Jackson's this regular season. The run defense has improved from last year. Pretty strong play from DL and tackling has been good. Doing a good job of gang tackling and getting into the backfield. Last year they were doing neither.

Gotta give Big Red the edge here with their success and being at home, but I think this one comes down to the 4th quarter. I'd be surprised if it's a blowout like last year. The winner is going to hit it big on computer pts.

Not sure of the accuracy of schedule star, but Boardman's 2018 schedule is the exact same as this year with all sites reversed and an open date in week 4 so I'm not sure if it has been or will be renewed. Boardman didn't have an open date on the ohsaa website, however. The schools did play uninterrupted from 1988 to 2001, sans 1996 or 7 I believe.

While Big Red started off their traditional 8 home game schedule with interstate and international competition, Boardman has been steadily increasing their challenge. Biggest so far . Spartans by 4 in the Ville.

If the referees make it on time from the pre-game meal at Reno's house, I'll go with Big Red. Good luck Boardman

As I said on the other thread, barring some bad turnovers/mistakes by Boardman, I think this one comes down to the 4th quarter.

Boardman is dramatically improved on offense. Very balanced attack running and passing the ball, and is spreading the ball to different receivers. Also, O'Horo (QB) is a good/tough runner. It makes it very hard to key on just one or 2 things. The Howland game, I believe I read that Boardman had 7 WR's which had 2 or more catches. Compare that to last year, where we were lucky if anyone other than our big TE, Koontz, had more than 2.

Some good highlights in Week 2 and 3 of O'Horo on HUDL. You'll see what I mean regarding him and the offense. http://www.hudl.com/profile/5479471/michael-ohoro

The most underrated yet impressive talent of the Boardman receivers might be their willingness and ability to block downfield. Ieraci, Falleti, and Huzicka all had huge blocks against Jackson which probably netted an additional 15 YAC on each play.

I think Boardman wins 28-17 or something along those lines. Last year Big Red scored off a short field following a blocked punt, a 40 yard bomb on 4th and long, one backbreaking drive in the 4th after a Boardman INT, and against our second string. As awful as we played last year, we had a great chance to make that a 7 point game headed into the 4th. I think the Spartans are much better than any Death Valley home cooking will compensate for...

Read somewhere that it's Legends Night Friday at Harding Stadium, where Big Red will honor the 1990 team that went 11-2 before falling to DeSales in the state playoffs. Funny irony, their only other loss that year was at home to Boardman, 28-24 as John Ryan led a late comeback drive.

Would rather see this game GOtW, because they will most likely put mooney/boardman on there.... in my eyes boardman wins going away this season, their downfall was no offense against mooney, seems they are oiled up right now rolling

Doubt they will. Boardman will be on again in week 8 live on Thursday at Ursuline. Also the canfield game should be game of the week as canfield will probably be undefeated and Boardman 5-1 or 6-0. Though to be fair any of Boardman's best 3 could be GOTW.

It just kills me how you Big Red followers talk about reload, rebuild whatever. The 9 home games you play, the weak schedule that you play, the numerous black eye's you have taken, does not add up to an elite football program. Sorry, that's just the facts.
