North Region football / Re: Ohio Athletic Conference
« Last post by bceagle80 on Today at 07:32:41 am »
JCU had a better defense than Mount in '13 and I would expect '14 to be the same.   This version of Mount's D appears to be a little better than last year, but not significantly so.   Week 10 should be a shootout.

It is interesting to see the comments each week and the debate on how good Mount Union really is. Keep in mind each team is comprised of some new faces each year and every team every year needs to learn how to win. The gifted athletes on Mount Union's football team are, most likely, learning just like every team does. The real question is how do they take it to the top level this year. I agree with Dr. Acula that a few young men need to emerge as game changing difference makers. Who will they be and when will we see it happen? I expect it will happen over the next few weeks before the JC game.

FYI: JV won against Baldwin Wallace 40-0 this past Sunday.

Bceagle- I know you have a son on JV so congrats on their continued victories.
On the other side of that coin- isn't it a bit depressing to see the never ending blow outs?  Wouldn't it be better to see some really tight scores or even losses so that the conference has hope for greater balance in the future? 

Nothing Mt can do I know. But I'm not even an OAC guy and I get frustrated with the failure of the other programs to improve.
We get some of that in the WIAC- just not to the degree of disparity.

To directly answer you regarding it being "a bit depressing", emma17, the answer is a very strong "NO"! There is a reason for this answer. My son has seen great victories during his schoolboy years but he has also suffered defeat. He is very happy to have many young men around him with strength, talent and ability. Ultimately, my son wants to play at the highest level possible and then coach football at the highest level possible. He is a sponge when it comes to football and he is watching and learning about coaching all the time during practices as well as games. While dealing with defeat can become a positive growing experience, he never again wants to put up with a losing season. He is learning how to win at the college level. He is seeing the focus and intensity needed to win at this level.

For me, I just enjoy football and want to see my son enjoy himself playing the game for a little while longer (hopefully most of the next 4 years).

Sorry narch didn't mean to hurt your feelings about your QB. I never meant to slight Reber I just stated my opinion.  I'm sure all the coaches in the ODAC know how good Nance makes HSC . You seem to be consumed with stats and that is a good indicator but too many variables are in stats only to say whose better. A lot of the D3 offenses post crazy offensive stats but Favret seems to be protective of Nance until the Conference heats up.   I've seen a lot of D3 QB's and personally I think Nance is a notch above. You rarely see  his size , strength , speed , arm strength and most importantly Wins in a D3 QB. Certainly no disrespect to Reber. IMO if Nance were playing for Mt Union Burke would be his backup. But , ...... we will never know.

This is what happens when you drink and post. Don't let it happen to you! ;D

Bold. Very bold. Considering Burke was the First Team AA last year and preseason first team AA and he is killing the OAC and living up to the hype this year, that is a bold, bold statement.

No way in hell. Uh-uh.
