    North Dominates South

     











    Despite a rocky start - giving up an opening kickoff touchdown that was ran in by South's Mike Crews, North quickly got on track and dominated South for a 42-7 win.  And to add to the early miscues, on their first snap from scrimmage, North fumbled the ball - they recovered the ball but it was a shaky start to a rivalry game for the visiting Panther team. North did complete that drive and scored a touchdown when Luke Eby plunged in from  4 yards out. But the momentum shifted when Ben Singleton recovered a South fumble at midfield.  That stopped a South drive that could have put them back on top.

    But from that point on, North did all of the scoring. They regained the momentum and did not let South threaten again. They did this despite losing their starting quarterback Dylan Stinson last week due to injury. Their back up took over this week and did a commendable job at the helm. North passed sparingly, but were effective.  

    "We let them run the kickoff back for a touchdown and at that point they had all the momentum. But we kept on chipping away and gradually got that momentum back. We hit on some big plays and got that momentum back."

    Defensively North did a good job of stopping the run and when South tried to pass, South felt the heat. Their quarterback was sacked 5 times.  Cooper Cole got 4 of the sacks and also kicked a nice coffin corner punt that went about 47 yards and put South on their own 2 yard line. North controlled the line of scrimmage and South found it hard to establish a ground game.  In the last quarter both teams put in their JV's.

    "We pursued well to the ball, and the pass rush was crazy. Cooper Cole was all over the backfield, Isaac Johnson had some pressures. We were getting after it up front. Football is a game of position and Cole did a good job tonight with his kicking game."

    It was rookie head coach Adam Hall's first win with the Panthers.  It was a rivalry game and also the game was sponsored by the National Guard, who furnished the host South team with camouflage jerseys. So there was plenty of pressure for this game.

    North scoring:Luke Eby 4 yd TD run; Eby 6 yd TD run; 15 yd TD catch; Eby 2 yd TD run;  6 yd TD run; Booth 4 yd TD run.

    North defense: Braeden Rike int; Rike sack; Cooper Cole 4 sacks; Jacob Davis fumble recovery; Ben Singleton fumble recovery

    South defense: Napier sack. South offense Crews 62 yd TD run.

    Coach Hall on the game,"I am very proud of our guys, we lost our starting quarterback last week,which is hard for any team. I have to commend Twin Valley South, they were hard hitting the entire game. They played hard too.  But I am proud of the way we played. We will break down the film and see what we need to do better for next week against Bethel."

    Indians Scalp Hounds







     

    The Carlisle Indians defeated the Dixie Greyhounds.  The Hounds moved the ball against the Indians, but had problems scoring in the loss. In the first half they probably won the time of possession and moved the ball well in between the 20's.  But when they got close to a score they either coughed the ball up or their drive stalled with the goal line in sight. The team turned over the ball 3 times in Carlisle territory. Defensively, they gave up big plays.

    Their first drive and their last drive summed up their night.  The opening drive of the ball game, Dixie drove down to the Indian 9 yard line where the quarterback fumbled a muffed snap and Carlisle recovered.  A few plays later Carlisle scored on a 78 yard run. Then in the last quarter with a little over 2 minutes left and the score 22-7 in favor of Carlisle, Dixie recovered a fumble deep in Carlisle territory. It was the last chance for the team. But the opportunity was squandered, another turnover gave Carlisle back the ball and they scored in the final seconds of the game to make it a 28-7 victory.

    Dixie's lone score came in the second quarter from a drive that started on their own 38 yard line. Jordan Butt caught a pass from Jimmy Myers and the 28 yard completion found pay dirt. Dixie mainly used the spread offense and short passes for their offense.  They ran sparingly, but did use a jumbo package where lineman Bill Wombold was used in the backfield. This was good for a few first downs.  Carlisle used a double wing offense and mainly ran.  They did mix in the pass. 

    Next week Carlisle hosts Brookville while Dixie hosts Northridge.

    Cash Crunch for Athletic Departments?

     I think that most of us are glad to see sports kick off this fall in Ohio.  Albeit with a plethora of rules and restrictions.  One of those restrictions are on the number of fans that that can attend an event - only a couple of tickets per student.  So that is going to cause gate revenue to drop off drastically for area athletic departments.

    Most sports operate at a loss.  Tennis, cross country, soccer - all of these don't get much gate to begin with. When you factor in uniforms, referee's, coaches pay and so forth these sports all create more expenses than revenue.  In most schools the revenue makers are football and basketball.  Football is expensive as equipment costs eat up a lot of budget, but at most schools football still generates more revenue than expense.  Basketball has less equipment expense and really helps pay for the rest of the sports.

    But with gate receipts down due to corona then where is the revenue going to come from?  Streaming the games live has been OK'ed by OSHAA.  But the smaller schools are having to scramble to get the technology and personnel paired together to do this.  With limited resources and some rural schools lacking a strong internet backbone this could be difficult with their technological limitations.  And oh by the way, how will revenue be generated? Is is pay per view for the viewer, or do you sell ad spots to businesses and make it free for the consumer?  

    If you manage to get this figured out will the revenue generated be enough to make up for the lost gate revenue? Probably not - part of the experience of the game is just being there with other fans. Relatives and hard core sports fan will take the time to log in and watch a game.  But I don't see the casual fan on a Friday night sitting down to watch a game by their lonesome. There are a lot of options for entertainment on a weekend evening. Still some revenue will be better than no revenue. 

    If basketball happens this winter with the same pandemic restrictions, then schools could be seeing drastic shortfalls in revenue.  Will some of the sports that don't create revenue be dropped? Will the track team need to raise revenue on their own next spring to be able to compete?  Do schools shuffle funds from other areas to keep sports viable?  One thing is for sure, your schools athletic director will be putting in overtime this school year to keep teams on the field.

    Crazy Covid Season

    I just got through reading the latest proposal for a 6 game season and then everyone that wants to makes the playoffs. I am scratching my head over this. In my mind, either the season is on or it isn't. These half way measures are just plain confusing and I don't know that they actually accomplish anything except to show that "we are trying".

     I guess that this is the best compromise to get football played this fall in Ohio. But like all compromises, no one is happy. This makes me think of the 10pm rule for bars. What is magic about 10pm? Either the bar is shut down because it is a hot bed for Covid, or it is open because it is not. I don't know that keeping a bar open for half the night really accomplishes much - except to show that we are trying to do something. And this is the same for football. It is a halfway measure (Ok one more game than half) for a 6 game football season.

     But wait it is more convoluted because schools can opt out of the playoffs and play more than the 6 game regular season. But who do they play if their competitors are opting for the playoffs? Do they stop at 6 and start sending out flyers saying that they are looking for games in weeks 7, 8, 9, 10?  How do you fill those last 4 weeks if you decide that this is a rebuild year and you want to get in the max number of games for experience?

    A cynical person would look at the higher number of football playoff games from these new rules and note that OSHAA (the Ohio Athletic Association) gets a cut of the gate. Are they making up lost revenue from the shortened basketball tournament last season, or maybe building up funds in case the Covid re-emerges this winter and basketball season is either shortened or doesn't happen at all.

     Then instead of the Harbin system we are using votes. We are going back to 1960. So if you have a school that you hate, you can not vote for them, or vote them down in the rankings so that they get a poor seed. I am not happy, but now the kids who have been working so hard this winter, spring, summer and now fall will get a chance to play - I am happy for that.
