I'm a UE alum, but I think we need to look at opponents. This isn't the same Minerva from the mid 2000's. They've lost 31 games in a row for a reason.

Lack of intensity and motivation are good analogies.

Use all 3 Aces.

That bad start to 2018 has already begun Raider. No excuse for it.

I would hold off till week 2 see how united stands up to Salem. if they hold their own through the first half then they might be a threat to the league, but I don't see them winning the game but it is a big game for them and they do play hard against salem just going both ways all the time usually kills us against these bigger teams that have enough guys so they can rest I think the salem game should give an idea of where united stands in this league if they are up there near the top or somewhere around the middle of the pack

Salem plays some both ways. They are very beatable, if you stay fundamentally sound. With that said, good luck.

You cannot compare Salem against Minerva. Salem is more competitive and experienced.

Did not see Salem beating Ep but that’s why you play the games, coaching can’t be too good down there

No one seen that coming, there were several factors in the game that need rectified by Friday.

Hands down yes.

But Brookfield isn't. Just a little thought about the last scrimmage that caught our attention.

I go back and forth on EP-WR, so I’d say it’s a toss-up. After seeing WR Thursday night, they have a very good D. A bit undersized but they make up for it with speed and aggression. Offensively Reserve wasn’t too impressive, but they do have a really good runner in Gatrell and the QB also is a good runner/athlete. With the game in Reserve I’ll say WR by 7 but wouldn’t be surprised with any outcome.

All I'm going to say is with the talent the Dogs have, Salem should not have won.

Brookfield should have had their azz handed to them in those 2 qtrs.

Ep has more talent then WR that’s an easy one, but hake can coach, if Ep plays offensively like they can then WR won’t be able to keep up

Never should have lost. That said:

Reserve did not impress me and I was surprised to see a Spaite team so mediocre and one dementional.

Dogs have some identity issues, didn't surprise me, last year's act is hard to follow, knowing full well they should have been 9-1 and not lost to Salem. Same as this year.

Salem's Ron Johnson is a good coach, his kid is a good QB, it was big plays from Salem and EP dropped balls, failure to recover numerous Quaker fumbles and that pick 6 on EP's part. Erase all that garbage and EP wins comfortably like they should have. They should have won last season and been 3-0 in the current series.
You guys debate all you want, I'm done for this week.

Lisbon looked very impressive in all facets of the game. Could not be happier with the start. Tougher competition week 3

It will be interesting to see how they improve from week 1 to week 2.

The way they built up VC, I thought they'd crush Campbell...maybe Campbell is better than Dana gave them credit for.

Go to vindy.com and look at the stats for the Campbell VC game. Campbell had 62 yards total offense and 1 first down. VC had close to 300 yards offense. 2 TDs called back because of penalties and other big plays negated because of penalties. Campbell scored by falling on the ball in the end zone after a bad snap on a punt. I'm usually not the " we should have won by 4 Td" guy, but the score was not indicative of the game. Should be a good game week 3 in Lisbon

Campbell is that bad, 60 yards is embarrassing. I thought Campbell woulda been a lot better offensively

Some old coach once told me that the good teams improve the most during the season from week 1 to week 2. Hard to think Lisbon could improve that much from what they did this past Friday. We shall see.

Some old coach, well Coach Butcher isn't around anymore and Coach T isn't an old coach yet. Had to be some old gypsy that was passing through.

Thatís an old football trope that gets said on all levels every year. I do think there is some truth to it, but it may just be better conditioning.

Also hasnít been mentioned yet is Leetonia getting in the win column for the first time in almost 2 years. Looking at their schedule (Mathews who lost to Ashtabula St. John and Southington) I think thereís a realistic shot they start 2-1 or even 3-0.

Leetonia going 2-0 I would say is almost certain as Mathews has nothing at all to compete with this year... Southington may give the Bears a challenge, but getting Leetonia back in the win column is a great thing for building that program back up...

Something to think about, Leetonia goes 5-5, they could be in the playoffs in D7.

Most of the D7 schools would have a strong chance at the playoffs with 5 wins.


Congrats to Leetonia on the win last week, and good luck in week 2!

Bulldog 74 I heard that this was the last game between Salem and EP for a while. Didn't know if it was true or not do you know anything about that.
