    I don't see why the Private schools will be finished in AA after this season. The move to six classes isn't a done deal yet.

    My post was meant to say that other than Tcat25, I doubt that many people have seen both teams play this season, so for anyone at Russell to dismiss the OC offense would be folly - just as anyone at OC acting as if Russell's Wing-T is obsolete would be a mistake.

    Russell 35

    O' Cath 24


    Thats what they all think....this is not the same D. We are #3 in 2A vs the run. We may give up a few big runs but they always tighten up when it counts.

    I dug these two up from last year. I can bring up several more if you like. Didn't you learn your lesson from last year? O'Cath may win the game, but that's the reason they play them.

I am happy that we won but dont be surprised if Russell wins the state. They play tough ball.
    Jay kind of touched on it but both the NO TD calls were correct...They were right in front of me and as much as I wanted them both to be wrong they weren't...I was on the goal line about 5 yards off the sideline...On Brown's long run the Belfry defender popped the ball lose at the 1 1/2 yard line...The ball rolled into the endzone & out of bounds...I told the guys I was with immediately that it was a touchback & Belfry's ball...The second one, Brown was down just inside the 1 yard line...Sorry guys!! I wanted those scores BADLY too!!! We would have been up 34-0 and wouldn't have had to go through the 2nd half suspense...

    Brown did fumble before he got to the goalline. He has to learn to protect the ball and not let up. I don't think he will be making that mistake again.

    Just in case think Leon Lett.

    Catholic will probably lose to Russell next week because our defense sucks, our offense sucks, our coaching staff sucks, and up until three years ago we only played flag football!! But you know what, were learning, believe or not we beat the #1.#3,& #6 teams in the last three weeks . Gives a couple more years we will get there.......

    Wow. How in the world did the Aces beat all of those teams if they are that bad?

    (Please note the sarcasm)

    Trust me no one is taking anything away from O'Catholic. They are obviously a great team, and program as the last few years have shown. I just believe that Russell deserves some credit and respect too, and it doesn't seem like aces03 believes they do.

    We are suppose to enforce the rules, and no we aren't supposed to be no biased. We can have a favorite team, and root for whomever we please.

    Russell wins this one with a nitty-gritty running game & a stingy D, proving once again that defense wins championships, running the ball is still cool, and Tony Franklin's offense sells tickets and nothing more.

    Good luck to Coach McGlone and the Red Devils!

    iPapi, this is the second week in a row we have played great physical teams an we won both times. Must be something to this " Tony "thing . By the way Kamuf had over 100 yds rushing early in the second qtr,anybody at Russell have that many yards for the game.
