Xenia (3-1) at Butler (2-2)

Projections show Butler beating Xenia but that feels like a stretch. What do Xenia have besides Sincere Wells? Do they throw or are they a power running team? Beating Xenia would help Butlerís playoff hopes. Even if they lose to Xenia and Troy they should be good in the playoffs at 6-4.

Xenia is a power running team. For the season, the QB (Christian Severt) is 7-19 passing for 111 yards and 2 TD.

Sincere Wells carries most of the load, as he has 859 yards and 10 TDs through 4 games. Severt is 2nd on the team in rushing with 177 yards and 3 TDs, and the Kevin Johnson is behind those 2 with 127 yards on the season.

As for playoff hopes, Butler probably needs this one. Butler/Piqua/Tipp all have playoff aspirations, but I would venture to guess that only 1 will make it since they all play each other, and assuming they all lose to Troy. Then you also have Sidney, who has a harder path to the playoffs in D2, but if they beat everyone but Troy they'd have a shot as well.

Butlers new coach has some good experience defending the triple the last couple of seasons against Fairmont & Beavercreek, he was also there when Cville was running it. Xenia has a lot of weapons & a much improved (and big OL) which will be very tough to scheme against. Unless Xenia puts the ball on the ground I dont expect this to be too close.

Sounds like itís no secret the run is coming but stopping it is easier said than done. I see Butler losing to Xenia and Troy and having a great shot to win against everyone else as they match up much more closely to Greenville, Piqua, Sidney and Tipp.

Puckett is great he just doesnít have the horses yet. This will probably go the way of Harrison and Northmont. Big, physical teams imposing their will.

Itís pretty clear that Xenia seems to be much better this year compared to last. What is behind the turnaround? Best I can tell itís the same cast of characters. Vandalia didnít give up a run of more than 5 yards last week until Northmont finally broke one late in the game. Only having to worry about the run makes things more manageable for Vandalia. Last week they got gutted by the long ball. Iíll take Vandalia 24-21.

I agree if Xenia is mostly a running team. I think Butler was very good against the run in the Northmont game. It will be a tough hard fought game that I think Butler wins 28 to 21.

Troy only beat Xenia by 7. They are solid.

Watch out for that wide receiver that Butler has. He made a couple big plays against us in the first game and he can change a game at any time. Also, Butler played good run defense against Harrison as well. We ran for 155 but on 37 carries so we only averaged a little over 4 per carry. If Xenia rarely passes I think Butler will do well in this game. They also don't quit. Harrison led them 28-7 at the half but Butler fought the entire game and never gave up. Their effort, attitude, and sportsmanship were very impressive.

Agree with most points on Butler aside from the sportsmanship. Dirtiest Butler team in years. Seemed to be product of new coach.

Curious where you are coming up with them being dirty? Some people like to call hard hitting and aggressive players dirty.
