    Cincy St. X vs Colerain: Predictions?

    Cincy St. X in a rematch with Colerain at 6 PM at PBS.

    St. X won 7-0 in the first game of the year for these teams picking off 3 of the 4 passes that Colerain attempted.

    Colerain has certainly developed offensively since then, but St. X has had impressive victories against an absolutely killer schedule.

    See the USA Today article below for a preview.

    Very true: X has played a very demanding schedule, whereas it could be argued the only team that moderately tested Colerain was Tyler Lee, TX.

    What effect will that have?

    X won the 1st game 7-0 after scoring on about a 30 yd. drive after a Colerain fumble.

    Colerain had about 140 yards of total offense; 0 passing. X didn't have much more.

    Colerain ILB-Mixon-committed to Michigan, OLB-Moeller-committed to Ohio St.

    X-DE-?-committed to Boston College

    Both defenses are big enough 200-220 on front 7, very athletic, drilled in reading the opponent's offense, and can defend the pass very well.

    X is a little bigger on defense, Colerain is a little faster.

    The other dimension is- because their defenses are so dominant, the offenses are a bit conservative; they don't take risks and they value gaining 40+ yards of field position by punting the football.

    X has a small, very savvy, very quick, very accurate QB, 2 small but very good RBs.

    Colerain runs the option with 4 speed burners, and doesn't throw it very effectively vs. good defenses that can rush the passer and cover.

    2 very talented teams from the sound of things.
