This week, in honor of the regional finals of the 2011 OHSAA football
playoffs we try to bring you everything we know about this weekend’s
tremendous match ups–much of which you’ve not heard anyplace else.

We lead off the show with Steve Coate the highly successful head
coach of Plain City Jonathan Alder High School.

Coate has placed eleven straight Pioneer squads in the playoffs and
this one looks a lot like the other ones except the play mix is maybe a
little more skewed towards the run than usual. That’s because he has a
monster line headed by the mammoth Max Pullen.

We talk about the upcoming regional final with an undefeated as well
as very talented Springfield Shawnee team; what might have happened if
they had to play Dayton Thurgood Marshall instead; the long and winding
road of his coaching career; last week’s regional semi-final against an
undefeated Jackson team; and the upcoming coaching vacancy at Troy High
School–a place where he actually started his coaching career.

We also feature Scott Reed of SWOhioFootball.com.

He’s here to talk about his (and that of his partner in crime, Ryan
Boyer) proprietary  personnel evaluations of Cincinnati Moeller and
Cincinnati St. Xavier–two teams that meet this weekend in what should
be an epic region 4 final.

They also evaluated the undefeated and highly ranked D-II squads of
Trotwood-Madison and King’s Mill King’s High School.

That game also serves as one of two MVPhd games of the week along
with another great match up (D-VI this time) in Marion Local versus
Minster.

Think of it as the MAC semi-final.

Tim Langevin is on hand to do pregame for both of those contests
as well as to indulge in a little speculation about many of the other
contests starting Friday night.

All of that plus another appearance by Tubby the Intern and you
have one killer show on your hands.

It’s a great line up and it is all yours–free of charge–courtesy
of your friends at MVPhd, the Miami Valley Sports Magazine, and JJ
Huddle.
