Actually I am a very educated alum about the state of this school. I know a lot of things that the general public don't know that has gone on and may never know. If they did they would be appalled by it. And as for clowns their president of the school is one and so is the alumni director. 🤡🤡

Moeller is headed in the right direction but the football team is playing their home games at Norwood Shea Stadium. It is a dump compared to most of the big D1 programs in the area. How can Moeller allow this to be the standard for their football program? Go buy some land and build a decent football facility.

As an outsider, I’m surprised having its own football stadium isn’t a priority for a school with a tradition-rich football history like Moeller. Playing a playoff game at Shea Stadium seems like a second-rate experience for a big program. I can’t imagine alums are happy about it at all. How many fans are going to get shut out of this game? Several thousand in all likelihood.

It’s true, it’s true. Trust me …

For the hundredth time, Moeller has the land, in a great location, and when completed will be an awesome venue to watch a game. I'll give you 15-18 million reasons why it's going to take some time to complete. No one is happy with Norwood. Don't blame Moe administration, blame Archdiocese of Cincinnati for selling off all the land behind Moeller in the early 60's, virtually land locking the campus with no viable option for a stadium.

As far as the game on Friday, I get that some might have their doubts about this teams consistency especially at the QB position. But I think this coaching staff has shown and will show that they’re capable of getting their players mentally ready for the rigors of division 1 Ohio playoffs. Considering the one game they’ve lost this season was one they blew for themselves with dumb mistakes and miscues vs. the other best team in OH, I don’t know how anyone can say they’re playing their worst football rn. If this teams flaws do flare up in a disappointing loss in the playoffs, it won’t be vs. this St X squad. As much flack people give Dunn, it’s not like Herbstreit for X has lit the world on fire. This is still an X team that Moeller should and would’ve beaten by several scores had they not played one of their worst performances this season. I have all the hope in the world that this team comes to Friday and locked in and ready.

Moeller beats St X 32-14

They actually do have land and it will be built- the president you have a personal beef with focused on other areas first which in my opinion is to be commended. He repaired a relationship with a famous alum who is making it happen via a major donation and support. Joining yappi and immediately airing such garbage is juvenile and unimpressive.

I don’t see anyone here showing hatred toward Moeller.

It’s true, it’s true. Trust me …
There is not—on this thread anyway. It was an alum who is not happy with a few things administratively. That is his experience, and opinion, which he’s entitled to it. I happen to agree with him on a particular point.

In addition, he (and myself) made an observation/prediction about this team. That clearly didn’t sit well with others here.

The more I learn about the field at Norwood the worse it sounds. Very limited parking, even for Moeller fans. There are one set of bathrooms, one set of concessions, concrete seating (no bleachers or seats), and pretty much one way in and one way out. Sounds like it is going to be an absolute cluster.

I get it Moeller has played there all season but they have never had a crowd this big. Put the Egos aside and do what is in the best interest of both fan bases to provide a safe and fun environment. Agree to another facility that will properly accommodate both fan bases. And another thing, it sounds like StX fans bought the majority of the tickets. Both schools got a very limited amount of ticket allotments and passes for administrators, etc. They did not include tickets for players families or students. It was pretty much a free for all since OHSSA controls the ticket sales.

It’s obvious there are trolls that occasionally pop into this forum and act like they are Moeller people but are only here to stir the pot
. I’ve also learned the hard way if you really have an issue pissing and moaning anonymously here is not the way to go. Take your complaints directly to the source.

There’s no legit reason it can’t be played at Nippert, if there are enough volunteers to step up and help with in-game and postgame operations to keep the stadium orderly.

Or, hell, go up to everyone’s favorite, Welcome Stadium. Or go to Middletown.

It’s true, it’s true. Trust me …

All of these observations are correct except for tickets for Moe students. They were put aside for those wishing to purchase. And that’s the way it should be considering it’s their team. Hopefully St X students had/have that opportunity as well for their team.

Per the news article on this matter: “There was some thought by school officials that the game would be sold out by Wednesday”. This quote is both laughable and naive, whomever thought that. Sadly, it is too late for a venue change.

True, trolls are on the forum. But, if you check past posts, that is not applicable here.

The early 60'was around 60 years ago. That excuse is a bit old. While Lockland wasn't ideal it was centrally located, had ample room in the stands (for most every game) and had some parking for the Moeller faithful to tailgate. It is my understanding that they are looking to build the football stadium near the newly completed baseball stadium but the costs will be considerably greater and it takes time to raise those funds. Finding the location and funding it has been quite a challenge which is why Moeller is playing in Norwood, but don't give the Administration a free pass (or at least past administrations) as this has been a problem for many years.

LaSalle and Moeller were opened the same year. Both schools were built in residential neighborhoods. LaSalle had land for years that went undeveloped behind the school until they were able to build a very nice stadium in the back. I think you under estimate the impact of selling that land 60 years ago had on what Moeller could or couldn't do to grow it's facility.

I understand how selling the land impacted Moeller. My point is that it happened 50+ years ago. During this time they used fields that were owned by other organizations. I think one of the challenges is that Moeller, given its recent founding (compared to X and Elder) did not have the alumni base or endowment to do some of the capital projects, like a football field. I don't know how much land was sold, but even if they had enough for a stadium and parking getting in and out would have been a nightmare.

I hope their plans for a home field finally come to fruition as a program of their stature certainly deserves a permanent home field

It is my understanding the ticket allotment each school got pre-ticket sales was fairly minimal. OHSSA doesn't really give home teams that many tickets. I guess we will see Friday night but I expect StX will have more fans based on the intel I have heard. The fact OHSSA didn't even reserve tickets for player's families (Home or Away team) tells the whole story. It was a free for all!

It is pretty crappy for OHSAA not to reserve a set number of tickets for players families (Home or Away team).

Highly unlikely mason, sycamore or Princeton would agree to it. Walnut Hills has half the capacity of Norwood.
This was botched completely by the OHSA. They knew two weeks ago that there was a high probability that these two schools would meet and they needed a much larger stadium and they did nothing. What a shame. If this were Massillon going to New Philly (example) they would have made a priority to move it.

Sycamore, Walnut Hills, Mason, Princeton, or any d1/d2 field that won't be in use Friday. But it may be too late now.
I get X fans wanting this game moved to an alternative site but Moeller isn't going to do that nor should they. Moeller earned the right to play the game at their home field. Whether it's Norwood or The Gerry it's their home game. X fans need to stop the complaining! If they would have won more games then maybe they play at X and they aren't complaining, but they didn't win games this year. (If they would have let their freshmen play their varsity schedule maybe they would have won more games from what Reload has posted.) I remember the 2013 playoff game between Moeller and X was played at Lockland's Roettger Field. Yes at Lockland. One set of restrooms and one concession stand. The place was packed and the atmosphere was great. I'm sure the same will be true come Friday night at Norwood. I hope a train comes at least twice during the game just for the X fans.....LOL. GBM!!!

But if UC would have agreed to take the game ( or Paycor) would your feel the same way?

I actually would like to See Moeller return to Lockland until their stadium becomes reality. There was nothing wrong with them playing there, and it was by far better than Princeton for a year, or Norwood. Apperantly $ was the reason Moe left Lockland. Maybe it's time to go back to the table and try to get back there?
