Too many teams get in the playoffs, no argument there.

If you’re saying pull the starters as soon as the game reaches a running clock or don’t send them back out after halftime in a blowout, then Beechwood would likely go 7 weeks without the starters play

Unfortunately injuries are a part of the game.  With that in mind, when you are playing an inferior opponent and you are up by five or six touchdowns, or more, I think it would do all coaches good to

The KHSAA website still shows game time to be 7:00 p.m.  I have been told that game time is actually 7:30 p.m. which is when Beechwood schedules their home games.  What is the back story on why Beechwood is different?  They have been 7:30 p.m. for as long as I can remember.  I do realize that during the playoffs, start times can be 7:30 p.m. when a team has to travel some distance.  But usually local games within a district are 7:00 p.m.  Just curious.

@nkypete does the turnaround against Lloyd last week give HC any hope against the Tigers this week?  Maybe not to win the game, but to move the ball and be more competitive?

Beechwood has overwhelming talent.  Even with injuries, they are very deep at all positions.  If they have brought their freshmen to the sidelines, that means that they have 3 times the players on their roster than Holy Cross.  That said, hopefully Holy Cross brings the attitude and drive that has helped it win 3 games out of the last 4 weeks.  I'd like to see Holy Cross play hard for 48 minutes and execute the game plan that the coaches have given them.

Beechwood has suffered several injuries the last few weeks but unfortunately for The Indians I don’t see that slowing this team down. This Tiger team is very deep and should be able to put an early running clock on Holy Cross. I was very happy to see Holy Cross avenge their earlier loss to Lloyd last week but this should be the end of the road for them. 
Beechwood- 56

Holy Cross- 0

I anticipate a sizable victory for the Tigers. Just too much depth and talent. Put mildly, despite the win last week and the uptick in success this season for Holy Cross, this is just a bad matchup in every way.

That being said, kudos to Coach Kozerski and his squad for their season and getting to this point. I've seen the Indians a couple time and this is a much better, much more disciplined team than we've seen in years. In particular, I was impressed with playmaking LB Bradyn Niemeyer, the electric WR Javier Ward, the always Ironman tough QB Javier Ison, and punishing RB Lavarr Jones.

Unfortunately for HC, this will be another running clock. My hope is both teams make it out without injuries and everyone gets home safely. Injuries have killed BW the last couple of weeks.

Will Beechwood send the starters back out for the second half if they have a running clock after two injuries back to back weeks to key contributors?

Injuries can happen at anytime including the opening kickoff. When, they occur in a game, is of no significant other than they occur.

I did not mean the injury was insignificant. I meant that an injury can happen on any play, and at any stage of the game. I think Brady Moore realizes that as well as any player that takes the field.

Just saying don’t down play these injuries, and leave your personal takes off discussions. To those that sustained them, and their teammates. they are not routine . Not when they happen in these blowouts, week after week. Let it lie.

I am not downplaying anything, nor are they routine. If you understood the context of my discussion, and I do not think you did, an injury can occur at any time of the game, and yes the injuries themselves are significant and I hate to see them happen to anyone. But, the coaches get blamed for an injury when all of the armchair coaches out there think a player should have been removed from a game. What if that player was injured in the first quarter? These are not personal takes. It has been said by many over the years that the next play could be your last one. But in no way, am I ok with seeing a kid go down.
