I personally feel bad for some of these schools going up against the much stronger ones in the TCL - it's probably demoralizing enough to the players to realize they really don't have much of a chance in this match up...I wouldn't want to be on the other end of this one.
Wish both schools good luck and hope their players stay healthy.
How demoralizing was it for St Francis to get beat by 10 when they played Sylvaina Southview? The Knights lost to them 36-26 at U of T. Start played them to within a touchdown at Cat's stadium and only lost 20 to 14. If you can play the former State Champs (Southview Cougars) to within 6 at their house, i certainly am not going to write you off.
Don't tell the Start kid's they have no chance,St Johns did that a couple of years ago and found out the hard way.
Talk about personnel & depth they stacked up pretty well with Ross, AW, & Southview. Start is the second largest school in N.W.Ohio, we are not talking about Libbey or Woodward,the Fun & Gun is gone on Tremainsville Rd.
The Spartans have played three tough games in a row and hung tight in all three,they lost to AW 23-20 and gave the Little Giant's of Fremont Ross all they wanted, the Little Giants did not put that game away until the 4th quarter.
Only a frannie would come on here and predict a Irish blowout, you tickle me with that one. I would just bet Dempsey would agree with me on this game after a tough win and a long road trip home.
That being said i will stop short of predicting a Spartan victory friday night but this one has upset written all over it! They can compete!
