    You might wanna check and see what team TDs loyalty is with.

    In the little bit of the Warren Central game that I watched before the St. X - BG early morning affair, I was impressed with their team speed and particularly the running back.

    I think their defense will be similar to John Hardin's. But I remember being shocked by how tough the 2003 WC team was along the lines, not just Dewalt. I hope this crew isn't quite that physical upfront, or this game could be very tough.

    Although Warren Central does not have a 6-7 receiver to defend against this year, overall the Dragons are probably a better team than they were in 2003. They returned nine starters on offense and seven starters on defense from last season. In RB Quinton Curry, they have one of the best in the state, plus behind QB Blake Ayres the Dragons have amassed over 2200 yards via the pass. The OL has everyone back from last year and can confront the Tigers with good size.

    Defensively Warren Central will play a 4-3 and have a very solid rush defense which will challenge the ST. X. vaunted OL and running backs, Vic Anderson and Mike Mattingly. If the Dragons have a weakness, it is in the secondary where they have been burned a lot by the pass. Unfortunately, the St. X. passing attack has been less than stellar this year, so I don't believe that the Tigers can take much advantage of this chink in the Dragon armour.

    In the past two games the Tigers have performed very poorly in special teams, having two muffed punt returns, one blocked punt, a blocked field goal, and two blocked extra points. This is normally one of the strongest facets of the X attack. Hopefully, the Tiger coaching staff can identify the problem areas and get them back on track before facing Warren Central, or it could spell BIG TROUBLE!

    Since I have a sister who now teaches for Warren Central (although her son graduated from St. X.), I have a SPECIAL interest in this game. I need to think a little longer before making any predictions, although I don't believe that there will be more than a 14-point spread either way.

    Another close game for the Tigers. WC has some great players on both sides of the ball. Several "speed" players go both ways and are very talented. The WC offense is balanced and hard to defend. I think the weather will play a factor and keep the game low scoring. The St. X defense will be ready and the offense will score late to win by a TD.

    I'll take WC in a close one. (Based on the scientific results of my coin toss)

    Anybody going down early to tailgate? There is a shopping center on Russelville Rd. about a quarter mile from the stadium. Would be a great place to tailgate and would make for a fast get-a-way after the game.

    After attending the team Thanksgiving ceremony at St. X. this morning, I am that much more convinced that this year's Tigers are on a mission and will not be denied....St. X. 31 - Warren Central 21.

    :fire: :fight: TIGERS BECOME DRAGON SLAYERS!! :fight: :fire:
