How do you guys in the WBL think the game between Wapak and ML pans out?
When ML scrimaged St. Mary's last year, I thought St. Mary's was the better team. I find this scrimage and 1st game for ML intriguing.

I believe ML will win this by 2 scores. They have a lot coming back and are going to be talented and already have loads of varsity experience. Wapak will have an athlete at QB but nothing ML hasn't seen the last couple years. Also bring back a solid LB in the Meckstroth kid.

I think Wapak is a huge question mark in the WBL this year, after a down season do they rebound?

Maybe? I guess it depends on the QB being completely healthy. We know what ML has coming back and it is a lot. A blocked punt by NB kept them from a state championship probably.

I definitely think ML is the team to beat in D7 this year, but Wapak is a respectable D3 school.
How would state champ D3 school do against respectable D1 school?

How do Defiance folks feel about this hire? Expected? Surprised? Optimism? Status quo? Curious to see how the Defiance football program will change philosophically with their style and cleaning up a lot of the small mistakes that, stacked upon one another, ruined a lot of their games.

I'm coming around to it. It was expected, he's a solid coach and provides continuity, plus knows the program from back in the Buti days. His issues at Wauseon were overblown, and he won. Turned things around at Bryan, taking them to their first playoff appearance and setting the program up for Kline to run with it. Took over Wauseon after the program grew stagnant in the late Emans years and got it rolling again. I'm cautiously optimistic.

Hopefully he's able to get the kids to cut out the self inflicted errors. Too many penalties and turnovers that killed any momentum we've managed to have, and that has to stop. He's young, energetic, and should get the kids fired up and buying in. If this hire doesn't work, I'm not sure what will.
