love the Knights and Grey Ghosts!
there are a couple of worse games in terms of distance. you just have to accept that there aren’t a ton of turf fields right in the middle of southeast ohio and the dayton area. most of southeast ohio is off the beaten path. it’s also worth noting that not many school want to host on black friday so while Chillicothe may have been ideal, the odds are they did not want to host.A few thoughts from an ex-Tiger (and apparently an ex-teammate of Hickt003)...
*On another thread, travel distances for every game are compared. By far, the game with the largest distance disparity is this game. Ironton got screwed unnecessarily. There were more fair sites.
*I don't think anyone is going to score much against Ironton. They're defense is nasty. For VV to win, it must be a low-scoring game.
*I've wondered at times why they don't run the ball more, too. A Wisconsin commit should get the rock a lot in D5 ball. However, a lot of times against HP, he got the ball and really had nowhere to go. He just muscled out 3-4 yards.
*D1 talent doesn't always win out. But, it's a factor.
*Carolldad, I was at that game, too. Interesting story about the coach...
