    You mean the team that graduated last year? I'm guessing it's Russell in a large way.

    Yeah, so far this year's Ashland Tomcats pale in comparison to the team that went to triple OT. And I don't think the AD can cancel for weather...

    I still can't believe this game has generated so little discussion. Even if one team is struggling.

    Not much to talk about.
    Russell is heavily favored.
    Ashland is struggling.
    Anything can happen.

    As aan Ashland fan myself I think that Ashland fans are scared to post anything. Well there has been nothing new to discuss from Ashland and dare anyone to talk about the coach because fans feel he is so great and its not his fault for anything except for me. I know that the Ashland players have talent and know that they can suceed but its a matter of using the talent they have. Good luck Tomcats .....

    Now, wait a minute, happy ol' dad, you are not the "lone ranger" in regard to those who are not overly impressed by Hart. There are others who agree with you.

    I would be shocked if this one is a blowout. The intensity of the rivalry throws records and talent out the window. Ashland has some GREAT skill players who can beat you every play. The past three games they really haven't looked like they knew what to do on every play. If this happens to be the week they figure it out, anything can happen.

    I would like to see the district foes pull out the W in this one, but with it at Russell and the way things seem to be going for Ashland, I think its just to much of a hurdle. Ashland always play this game hard so I think they can stay close, but I just dont see them edging this one out. My prediction:

    Russell: 35
    Ashland: 27

    This one could be ugly early.

    Prediction

    Im predicting that Russell puts in a half back pass and scores a td on it and that Coach Hart will run a sweep right before half time instead of sitting on the ball.

    I love posting this: Ashland will start 0-4. It is as safe a bet as Commonwealth being sold out Saturday night.

    Talent: definite advantage to Russell

    Coaching: definite advantage to Russell

    Homefield: advantage to Russell

    Tradition in the last quarter of a century: definite advantage to Russell

    Ashland cannot beat Russell. Russell can only beat themselves.

    Common now. Give Ashland some advantage. Speed in the backfield is probably advantage Ashland.

    This is still a rivalry game and I would hate to see one team come out overconfident.

    Play hard from the start and take care of business.
