I think there is going to be a much bigger drop off from Kenton than most think. Truthfully, Kenton was not a very good football TEAM this year. Maty bailed them out with his running most of the time. Without him, I can't see more than 5 wins for Kenton. Not to mention that this is the deepest the WBL has probably ever been, and will probably continue. I see SM moving up in the standings and Kenton dropping back to middle of the pack. Bath will probably fall off a bit. Celina should be better than last year, especially since last year was far less than expected. The rest will probably be close to the same as last year.
So you are saying, that your team got thoroughly spanked at home by a "not very good TEAM"? Interesting, and the game wasn't even as close as the score (52 - 32).
Defiance will be interesting. We have the quarterback and both WR's back. Have to replace the top 2 RB's, but the the rest looked like they had potential in limited action. That's usually the least of our concerns, because outside of 2010 we just plug someone in and they rush for close to 1000 yards. Don't think scoring points will be a problem.
But the defense was atrocious the last 2 years. If that doesn't improve it's another season between 3 and 5 wins. If they do I could see them breaking into the top half of the league, maybe even winning 6 or 7. You can see signs of the program being rebuilt from the 1-9 year, but we'll see how long it takes.
Its kinda weird for Redskin fans to talk about league titles in back to back years. Still getting used to having Frye as coach. It would be nice to not have to worry about losing. We could someday get to the point where we gripe about 2 or 3 losses in a season.
How much do you see St. improving in the 2nd year under coach Phillips?
I think Coach Phillips and the Roughriders will be better prepared this year.They played against alote of good teams last year and saw a few of Ohios tope QBs and teams. I can see St.Marys going 7-3 or better!
