Good luck to your Lions.
I look forward to it t0oo. WB has been on the brink of bringing back a great tradition for a while now. It would be nice to see them to get over the hump and bring back that great tradition.

Not bad, not good, just what it is.

and Stark, why didn't Alliance and Marlington stand up to the threats. Salem and Minerva were the ones threatening - Carrollton old coach and South old coach were on board with it and pushing behind closed doors. Alliance Lville and Marlington would have had a league to play in

the IVC isn't going to take Minerva or Carrollton any time soon, so they would all have followed suit and not broke up the league. NBC should have been slow to go with Northwest.
Sorry everyone. I didn't intend to open up a can of worms here. My point was the "Old NBC" had a range of enrollment with Minerva the smallest at 234 and Louisville the biggest at 337. The EBC is Minerva at 234 and Alliance at 333 so nothing has changed except the league is down 1 team.. Also the wanted to touch on the competitive balance probably going away and how good of news that is for West Branch who will move back down to D4. It wasn't long ago when the NBC was one of the best D3/D4 conferences around and I think the ADs and coaches want to get that back. I think Louisville will benefit from being independent in football for 2 or 3 years but they need to find a conference. I have always admired all of Louisville's sports programs because this seem to successful in all of them. I hope things work out and they eventually get a conference.

MINFAN, I got to see the scrimmage yesterday and I still don't know what to think. The varsity offense did look pretty good, seems like they have a lot of weapons and speed, something we haven't seen since Dalton Hartshorn in 2014. But the defense is concerning. I heard East Canton's good running back didn't play and we still gave up 3 TDs in the half. But I do think they can put some points on the board. Markins took off for that 75 yard TD run and he can fly. That game next Friday is huge. They need to get that 0-30 monkey off their back so they can just play some football the rest of the year!!

Nice, Marlington was 35-0 over Springfield. The Dukes look like the team to beat.

Alliance got handled by North Canton 34-0 Varsity portion. JV’s actually won 14-0. Things of concern, Alliance doesn’t have a TB, this Massillon kid was nowhere to be found on Offense. Punting game was very weak, defensively we looked lost and missed tackles.

I know Hoover is a federal league school and returns a big Oline but I expected better from my Aviators

I Was at the Dukes scrimmage. They have some skilled players for sure ,but their level of aggressiveness just wasnít there. The 35-0 score is misleading . That Akron Springfield Team maybe be the worst team Iíve see play in the last 10 years . Pretty sure the Sebring Trojan would walk over then.

That's one hell of a statement. Sebring is generally considered the bottom of the barrel.
Pretty bad if they are worse than Sebring.

I know but I try An call it as I see it. It was a pitiful the lack of talent ,size and team preparation . Just looked lost.
Iím certain that any of the Duke posters would Concure that scrimmage did nothing for them but build false confidence.

Horrible scrimmage, horrible team. Springfield first first down come in the second 1/2 when it was mostly , freshman in. Marlington's defense was relentless and the offense scored at will. Dukes skilled people look pretty darn good from the QB, recievers and backs . They looked almost as good as they did against New Philly. But that means absolutely nothing. New Philly looks to be rebuilding and sadly Springfield was just bad. This Thursday at Marlington 7:00 vs. Poland Seminary will tell the story. If Marlington's QB and recievers play to there ability I like the dukes chances. There defense is very solid. In my opinion the difference in the game will be Marlington's passing game. The Dukes in a close one. Well hell I hope anyway 🏈

You're absolutely right 333. Akron Springfield was awful. I'm not to worried about the Dukes level of aggressiveness. Hard to be aggressive when the other team doesn't get a first down and your scoring at will. There were alot of jv players playing in the first half and some starters didnt play much at all. Good luck to WB and hope all EBC do well in OOC games

I agree about the aggressiveness when you are dominating...but dude started gassing up West Branch after a 7 on 7...we dominated the line of scrimmage last week vs New Philadelphia (who is ranked 7 in the first D3 poll) who turned around yesterday and beat federal League member Green ...meanwhile heís hyped because they beat a D6 school by 2 scores in a scrimmage ...seems to be trying to convince himself that they can play with the Dukes this year...I mean saying that 15 player Sebring (0-10 like 8 running clock games)would beat Springfield (5-5 last year) shows how uninformed he really is ..I guess you will find out week 9 if the Dukes aggressiveness is up to your standard ...

I assure you I’ve been around long enough to recognize talent. The Dukes have talent I’m not questioning that. Simply stating putting 35 points on a team the caliber of Akron Springfield did you no favors and possibly hurt you more than it did good. Perhaps you should do your own research and look at the quality of starters ,seniors and skilled players Westbranch is returning this year. For you to think that week nine will be a walk in the park and that West branch will not be competitive with the Dukes Tells me that you’re walking around with blinders on .

They know the level that Poland plays with, they will bring everything into well 1 I’m sure of that. I don’t think they have fared too well against Poland

I usually like your posts Warrior but this is in alphabetical order.. also if I were WB i would worry about Crestview next Friday because they may be the most athletic team you play all year.. they may not be the caliber team overall as Marlington but they have real speed and real athletes.. what was the score of the wb- crestview game last year??

I be pulling for wb but I donít think next Friday is a gimme!!

The Dukes will be the team the beat in the EBC. I hope they can pull it off against Poland- what a great opening game!! I would not read too much into scrimmage games- the playbooks are stripped down/ the coaches have a plan to get ready, the Dukes were 7-3 and and I believe return just about everyone. West Branch went 3-7 and lost probably the best QB in the league- i think wb needs to worry about Crestview who I believe handled the warriors last year .. I hope week 9 means something for both teams.. Meanwhile here in Minerva we just need to get one!! Lots of big games for different reasons next week!!

Crestview comes down to their RB, they have a good receiver but breaking in a new Qb might make them better later in the year, WB gets them at the right time imo

The Warriors were riddled with injuries last year theywere lucky to even win three games. When a team their size loses 5 two way starters it is going to have an impact. After three of the five returned against Alliance. it was obvious to me the team had potential. They had the game won up until the last 30 seconds .The following week at practice to more lineman go down there goes the season hence 3-7. Crestview does have some very nice team speed. I find it odd that Crestview has zero juniors on their team???.

As much as I don’t care for the team or the coach, I think Salem will be the 2nd best team in the league behind Marlington. The Quakers return a lot of linemen.

You are in the same boat as me with their coach, as arrogant as they come.

Minerva fans let me ask your opinion on the repository article. Part of me thought that's nice to give those young men props for working so hard and on the wrong side of the win loss score. But then the other side of me thought was it embarrassing to the city,school and team. I'm not being a jerk here. I'm not sure I'd want my team getting attention for a 30 game slide? Anyone else feel this. That being said I truly hope they get that elusive win and get that monkey off your back. Good luck Lions

For me it's not embarrassing. I think it's a good article showing all sides of high school sports. It's awesome when a team achieves a perfect season and wins a state championship. But the next Minerva win will almost be as important another teams state championship (not quite but emotions will be high). Of course in Minerva wish we would have won the 2 overtime games against Sandy Valley and Carrollton and the 1 procession game against United last year. We wish we would have beat Alliance and Canton South in very close games in 2016. But at best we would be 5 and 15 over the last 2 years, the program would still be down and this year's team would still be challenged to take the program to a more competitive level. The coffee shop talk in Minerva isn't as much about getting 1 win this year (although it is the elephant in the room), it's more about the excitement of the young talent on this team. It's been a while since we looked at the roster and saw hope for the future. This roster has size, speed and some strong kids. They are young and will take their lumps but there are some really good players. There is a very high ceiling with this group of kids.

I meant no disrespect to the city, coaches or players. My hopes is that the Lions turn things around. If it come across as negativity I truly am sorry. If it offends I'll ask them to delete. Again I hope things turn around for the Lions.
