As much as I'd like to see that kind of game as a fan, it does Mount no good to play someone of similar talent level.

Similar? Sounds like our JVs trounced theirs this year... and from what I’ve heard that’s the norm. You think the varsity match ups would be more even?

Edit: actually a 17 point win isn’t exactly a trounce... but my point is our JVs generally seem to beat theirs by a few tds every year.

I have thought that as well. I do remember the one year Ashland won (at Ashland) I stopped by to take a look (I was on my way to may parents house and it was on the way). Ashland had an awful lot of Juniors and Seniors sprinkled into their skill positions. The game was still close but Mount lost.

The old Mount site (Ric's site) used to have all the JV stuff as well (at least scores). Does anybody know where there is an archive of Mount/Ashland JV scores? Ric....ya there? Anyone? Bueller....Bueller?

Makes sense. It would be early in the season so the loss wouldn't ruin OSU's chances at a National title run.  ;D

I understand that it's difficult to find opponents for the opener.  It is what it is from Mount's perspective.  But what the heck is the upside of that for Defiance?  The only thing I'll note is that the AD at Defiance is a Mount grad so maybe that had something to do with it.

Collective groan. Not even a winning season since 2010.

Granted Ashland was a pipe dream, but this defines underwhelming.

I would think she would have known better.

I think it would be sweet to have the OOC game be in the middle of the season and have a “D3 Showdown” event. Invite 4-8 playoff teams from previous season to a neutral site  and have some great games on ESPN3. Seems like a disservice to the Division to only have 3 prominent games every season and to not take advantage of the ESPN3 capabilities and coverage.

Would be great for the division, recruiting, exposure, etc.

Sweet idea.  Who's paying for it?

Oh yeah, money. I’m sure MUC57 can cover it.
