Alter by 12
Tipp's coaching staff is already looking past alter, looking forward to their rematch against Bellbrook. Seems like big talk for someone in a "bad, bad league."Outside of Piqua....the MVL is a bad, bad football league. I think Alter wins this one because of strength of schedule is in their favor.
How would Tipp have done against Northwest? Mt. Healthy beat Northwest by more than Alter did, and Tipp beat Mt. Healthy by 44.How would you think Tipp would have done against Hoban?
Or you could do what Badin did and run the ball down their throat and stone them on defense. Sorry, I couldn't resist ?Agreed. Almost all of Alter's losses, and their barn burner against sub-par northwest, could at least be partially chalked up to deep coverage lapses. If you want to dominate Alter, you throw deep. Even Fairmont put the game away with a deep pass against the knights. Tipp's lack of deep ability plays right into the Knight's strength.
I'll through caution to the wind here, MH had 5 starters out for Tipp. Score comparing always gives a false sense of confidence.How would Tipp have done against Northwest? Mt. Healthy beat Northwest by more than Alter did, and Tipp beat Mt. Healthy by 44.
I get that you're fishing for the point that Tipp would get smoked by Hoban. All these speculative/transitive property results mean nothing. The teams appear pretty even, and should be a good game this Friday.
The full quote was:their coach said it in an interview, said he is looking forward to their game against bellbrook
“We’ve got a great road ahead of us,” Royse said. “We’ve got Alter next week. It’s a great opportunity to go play a great team and show what we’re made of. Then, it’s most likely Bellbrook after that in a rematch. We’re really looking forward to it — I think we can make a difference this time.”
He said exactly," we're really looking forward to it". Just shows where his head is at, even if its subconscious.The full quote was:
I get what you are trying to say, but I highly doubt he's actually "looking ahead" so much as just mentioning it there. Sure, one might say it's bad optics to even mention it like that, but I wouldn't take much from it.
Kmac57 , Good points on the penalties. normally I would agree with you on that however, I have to believe it will be cleaned up and honestly I have been impressed that Alter was able to beat Monroe despite the 10 or 11 penalties they had, alter constantly played behind the sticksNormally would love to have Alter play Tipp. However, this year's Alter team is one of the weakest in years. They have come together. Played a tough schedule but don't think will be enough. The bonehead penalties are still happening. Alter will not be able to overcome those against a good team.Hope I am wrong
Zip up a Carhart and get in there! Need to pack the house tonight!Kmac57 , Good points on the penalties. normally I would agree with you on that however, I have to believe it will be cleaned up and honestly I have been impressed that Alter was able to beat Monroe despite the 10 or 11 penalties they had, alter constantly played behind the sticks
I am going to go the other way on this. Good luck to both team. Is there TV footage? Little cold for this old guy...
I believe so, if I'm not mistake he still teaches at the High School, and is on the football staffGo Knights. Weather looks solid and the upgraded facilities that Tipp put in a few years ago should be a nice experience. Is Joel Derge still helping out at Tipp? He was the old HC, then some feathers were ruffled and he was let go, but I think he is back on staff?
