  1. Through the first 2 weeks of the season, it’s easy to see that the 3rd Region is very top heavy. Owensboro Catholic, Muhlenberg and Meade all had strong weeks, while Owensboro has been in quarantine. After the top 4 however, there is a massive drop off when it comes to good basketball thus far. It remains to be seen if any of those teams can emerge as true region contenders. 1.Owensboro Catholic Aces (5-0) – SAME Owensboro Catholic added 2 more wins this week, including an All-A 3rd Region Championship. They defeated Mclean 58-38 to win the title. Friday, Brian Griffith scored 38 in the 12 point win over Central Kentucky Home School. They Aces have Central Hardin, Daviess County and Union County scheduled this week. 2. Muhlenberg County Mustangs (2-0) UP 1 The Mustangs broke quickly out of the gates this week with big double digit wins over Crittenden County and Ohio County. The win over Ohio County puts them in the drivers seat for the #1 seed in the 10th district and a bye into the 3rd Region Tournament. They can clinch that with a win over Mclean County next week. Coach Eades has to be pleased with the balanced scoring and team effort thus far. They are scheduled to play Butler County, University Heights and Logan County this week. 3. Owensboro Red Devils (1-0) – DOWN 1 The Devils were out this week due to Covid. They are set to return to action tonight against Daviess County and have a game scheduled against Evansville Bosse later this week. 4. Meade County Greenwave (2-0) – UP 1 Meade County is off to an impressive 2-0 start. They got a blowout win over Daviess County to open the season and followed that up with a nice road win at Scott County. Casey Turner has led the Waves in both games with 17 and 16 points scored in each. Meade has Whitesville Trinity and Breckenridge County scheduled this week. 5. Ohio County Eagles (2-2) – DOWN 1 The Eagles dropped both games this past week to Barren County and Muhlenberg County. The biggest loss of the week however, is do it all sophomore Elijah Decker who may be out for the season with wrist injuries. The Eagles look to bounce back this week with games against Mclean and Henderson. 6. Daviess County Panthers (2-2) - SAME Daviess County lost both games this past week to Meade County and Henderson County. The Panthers showed a lot of heart in the loss to Henderson, battling back from a big 4th quarter deficit to nearly steal the win. They have a tough schedule to bounce back this week in Owensboro, Owensboro Catholic and Hopkinsville. 7. Mclean County Cougars (4-2) – SAME The Cougars went 1-2 this week, losing to Catholic in the All-A Championship and Union County before bouncing back with a win over Foundation Christian Academy. They have a big district game against Ohio County on Tuesday and Breckenridge County scheduled this weekend. 8. Edmonson County Wildcats (3-0) – UP 3 The Wildcats came out of quarantine swinging with 3 blowout wins this past week. They defeated Trinity, Cloverport and Bethlehem with an average margin of victory of 37 points. They look to stay hot with games against Grayson County, Metcalfe County and Butler County this week. 9. Grayson County Cougars (2-1) – DOWN 1 After a rough season opener against Ohio County, the Cougars have responded well. They defeated Metcalfe County to open the week behind a big 19 point game from River Blanton. They followed that up by battling Bullet East on the road to a 1 point defeat. They have Edmonson County, Apollo and Whitesville Trinity scheduled this week. 10. Hancock County Hornets (1-3) – DOWN 1 The Hornets dropped their lone game this week and 3rd straight overall to Tell City Indiana, 58-32. They are now in Covid protocol. 11. Butler County Bears (0-2) – DOWN 1 The Bears came out of quarantine with a tough 4 point loss to Central Kentucky Homeschool this past weekend. They have games against Muhlenberg County and Edmonson County scheduled this week. 12. Apollo Eagles (1-4) – SAME Apollo got their first win of the season to start the week, behind a monster 29 points from Landon Hamilton. The Eagles dropped their next 2 games against South Warren and Webster County. They will look to get things going this week with games against Grayson County, Union County and South Warren. 13. Breckenridge County Tigers (1-3) – SAME The Tigers got their first win of the season in overtime against Nelson County this week.Eamon ODonoghue and Cason Morris went for over 20 each in the win. Breck also dropped a game to Apollo to open the week. They have games against Cloverport, Meade and Mclean this week. 14. Whitesville Trinity Raiders (1-1) – SAME The Raiders opened the season by splitting games this week. They lost to Edmonson County to open the season but bounced back with a big win over Cloverport. Trinity has games against Meade County, Grayson County and Crittenden this week. 15. Cloverport Aces (0-5) – SAME The Aces dropped their games against Edmonson County, Whitesville Trinity and Cannelton Indiana this past week. They look for their first win of the season this week with games against Breckenridge County, Trigg County and Todd County Central.
  2. I don't suppose there is anywhere you can watch this game, is there?
  3. Several teams inside the region have had their season delayed further by Covid. In an already shortened season, it appears most teams will be playing a very limited schedule in 2021. Even with the limited play, there is already a chance at the top. With Gavin Wimsatt opting to focus on football, combined with Owensboro Catholic’s impressive 3-0 start to the season, the Aces take the top spot. 1. Owensboro Catholic Aces (3-0) Tim Riley has the Aces off to a quick start. They scored impressive wins over Evangelical Christian, University Heights and Madisonville this week. Ji Webb looks to have picked up right where he left off last season. Webb is a kid who could draw some recruiting interest if he continues to improve. He scored 27 points against UHA, going 13 for 13 from the field. Gray Weaver has also shown the ability to lead the Aces, as he put up 25 in the season opener against Evangelical Christian. Luke Scales and Sam McFarland have slid into starting roles nicely, getting the tough rebounds and executing Riley’s 1-3-1 defense well. The Aces play in the All-A Regional Championship tonight against Mclean and a big matchup with Lyon County later this week. 2. Owensboro Red Devils (1-0) Quarantine hit the Devils after a season opening win against Butler County. OHS got off to a bit of a slow start against the Bears but woke up in the second half to get a 84-55 win. Rod Drake played every kid on the bench in the win. While Gavin Wimsatt stepping away from basketball will no doubt impact the team, Owensboro is plenty deep enough to make up for his loss. 6-5 Senior Devonte McCampbell is a kid who just came out for basketball this year and opened with a 12 point, 8 rebound performance against the Bears. As usual, depth for Owensboro will be a major strength. Expect to see several different lineups over the next few weeks as Coach Drake tries to see which units work best together. The Devils return from quarantine this Friday, as they host Daviess County. 3. Muhlenberg County Mustangs (0-0) The Mustangs have yet to open the season due to quarantine. Their first games are scheduled this week at Crittenden and Ohio County. 4. Ohio County Eagles (2-0) The Eagles are off to a quick start, with 2 3rd region wins to open the season. They opened the season with a 23 point win against Grayson County and followed that up with a nice 10 point road win at Daviess County. Q Jennings is off to a great start, scoring 15 against Grayson and 17 against Daviess County. Coach Hopper is getting good balance in the lineup with Grant Tichenor, Josh Manning and Elijah Decker. The Eagles have home games against Barren County and Muhlenberg County this week. 5. Meade County Greenwave (0-0) Meade has had their season delayed due to quarantine. They are scheduled to open at home against Daviess County and Hancock County. 6. Daviess County Panthers (2-1) The Panthers opened their season with blowout wins over Grayson County and Cloverport. On Friday, DC came up a little short against Ohio County, losing 55-45. Camron Johnson and Cole Burch are off to nice starts for Coach Hayden, as both guys are averaging double figures through the first 3 games. The Panthers have road games this week against Meade County, Owensboro and Henderson County. 7. Mclean County Cougars (3-0) No matter the team or the roster, all Coach Darren Lynam does is win. The Cougars are off to an impressive start despite losing 7 of the top 8 scorers from their regional semifinal team a year ago. They scored wins over Trigg County, Hancock County and Heart for Christ last week. Brady Dame has been dominating, putting up 22 points per game and grabbing 13 boards per game to open the season. The Cougars will play Owensboro Catholic for the All-A Championship tonight, before closing the week with a road game at Webster. 8. Grayson County Cougars (2-1) Grayson County bounced back after a season opening loss to Ohio County to win their next 2 games. They defeated Breckenridge County and Metcalfe County to close the week. Junior Chandler McCrady has led the way thus far, putting up 14 points per game. The Cougars open district play this week, traveling to Butler County. 9. Hancock County Hornets (1-2) Since opening the season with a blowout win against Cloverport, the Hornets dropped their next 2 games to Mclean County and Trigg County. Consistent scoring hasn’t been an issue for Hancock, getting double figure efforts from Kaleb Keown, Ryan Ogle, Evan Ferry and Devyn Powers thru the first 3 games. The Hornets look to bounce back this week, with road games against Tell City Indiana and Meade County. 10.Butler County Bears (0-1) The Bears opened the season with a very impressive first half against Owensboro. They knocked down 7 first half 3 pointers before cooling off in the 2nd half. Jagger Henderson and Brody Hunt played well in defeat. It will be interesting to see how the Bears do against a team with equal athletic ability. They are scheduled to come out of quarantine this week, as they host Grayson County. 11. Edmonson County Wildcats (0-0) The Cats have yet to open their season due to quarantine. They are set to open the season tonight at Cloverport. 12. Apollo Eagles (0-2) Apollo opened the season with a heartbreaking loss at Union County in overtime. They followed that up with a double digit defeat at home against Murray. The Eagles just look like a team who needs to learn how to win. They will look for their first win on the road this week, at Breckenridge County and Webster County. 13. Breckenridge County Tigers (0-2) The Tigers have the most production to replace in the region and it showed in the first week of the season. They dropped games to Grayson County and Daviess County this week. Kason Morris averaged 13 per game in the 2 defeats. Breck will look for their first win against Apollo and Nelson County this week. 14. Whitesville Trinity Raiders (0-0) The Raiders have yet to open their season due to quarantine. They are set to open the season this week against Edmonson County. 15. Cloverport Aces (0-2) The Aces opened their season with 2 3rd region losses to Daviess County and Hancock County. They have games against Edmonson County, Cannelton Indiana and Trigg County this week.
  4. 1. Owensboro Red Devils (21-11 – Regional Runner Up) COACH: Rod Drake The Devils will be looking to erase last season’s disappointing regional loss to Owensboro Catholic this season. Owensboro defeated the Aces 3 times in during the season, including the 9th district championship game, but came up 11 points short in the title game. The biggest question coming into this season is the status of Gavin Wimsatt. There is a chance he decides to focus on football training with several big time division 1 offers on the table for him. Either way, the Devils still return several key players from a year ago led by senior guard Amari Robinson Wales. Wales averaged 14 points per game last season and really found his groove in the postseason. Sophomore point guard Kenyatta Carbon also returns as one of the best players in the region. Senior Matthew Brown returns from injury to provide even more fire power for the Devils. Expect sophomores Cayman Powell, Jalen Rogers and Ethan Pendleton to contribute as well. From top to bottom, Owensboro should again be one of the most talented teams in Western Kentucky. 2. Owensboro Catholic Aces (21-14 – 3rd Region Champions) COACH: Tim Riley Until 2020, finishing your season with a championship game victory has always meant you’re a state champion. The Aces upset Owensboro to claim the 3rd Region title last season but never made the trip to Rupp Arena. Returning players Jai Webb, Brian Griffith and Gray Weaver will be looking to actually make that trip this season. Webb is a dynamic big man who may have the highest ceiling of any player in the 3rd Region. Brian Griffith is a fearless point guard who can take most anyone off the dribble, or light you up from the 3 point line. Coach Riley will be looking for role players to fill the gaps left by seniors Drew Hartz and Andrew Riney. Expect Gray Weaver, Luke Scales, Sam McFarland and Braden Mundy to help fill those roles. Since taking the Owensboro Catholic job in 2015, Riley has the only 2 regional titles in Owensboro Catholic history and a 15-3 record in district and regional elimination games. 3. Muhlenberg County Mustangs (20-12 – lost in regional semifinals) COACH: Kyle Eades The Mustangs are coming off a strong 2019/2020 season and return a lot of key contributors from that team this season. They are led by player of the year candidate Nash Divine. Divine was one of the region’s top scorers at 15 points per game a year ago. He electrified the Sportscenter crowd in the regional tournament against Owensboro before exiting the game with a foot injury. Sophomore guard Trey Lovell also returns after averaging double figures a year ago. When you add contributors Cole Vincent, Donovan McCoy and Chandler Moore, it’s easy to see that the Mustangs will be a strong contender for a regional title in 2021. 4. Ohio County Eagles (22-8 – upset in the 10th district tournament) COACH: Tony Hopper Ohio County still has a bad taste in their mouths with how last season came to an end. The Eagles were at or near the top of these rankings all season before falling to McLean County in the first round of the 10th district tournament. While they will have to replace 4 of their top 5 starters, the cupboard is far from bare for Tony Hopper. Sophomore Elijah Decker will be one of the most dynamic players in the region. His size and ability to shoot it makes him very well rounded. Q Jennings recently committed to Murray State to play football, but is expected to return to the hardwood this season for his senior season. His athleticism will help the Eagles a great deal. Keep your eye on players like Grant Tichenor and Josh Manning as they take on even bigger role. With the talent at the youth levels around Ohio County, combined with a great mentor like Tony Hopper, you can never count out the Eagles. 5. Meade County Greenwave (10-17 – 11th district runner up) COACH: Jason Tripure On paper, it feels like the 5 spot is up for grabs in the region this year. Coach Tripure always does a good job of getting the most out of his teams and he returns a lot of contributors from last year’s team, led by Casey Turner. Turner is a big body who can shoot it from anywhere on the floor. He put up 13 points per game a year ago and should improve on that this year. The Waves also return Cannon Decker, Dylan Abell, Cooper Crump and Grant Beavin. All of those players played key varsity minutes last season and should pay dividends this season. 6. Daviess County Panthers (8-21 – lost in the 9th district tournament) COACH: Neil Hayden Size is the story for the Panthers this season. Coach Hayden returns a pair of 6-6 post players in Cam Johnson and Bo Stratton who should help create a lot of mismatches down low. Sophomore Cole Burch is 6-4 as well and should add yet another weapon as a swing man. The development of sophomore Koki Kato will be key at the guard spot to compliment all of the size of the Panthers. Expect Daviess County to improve in 2021, but making a dent in a very difficult 9th district will be a challenge. 7. Butler County Bears (21-10 – 12th district champions) COACH: Calvin Dockery The Bears will have a hard time replacing big time scorer Parker Rice from a year ago, but return a large cast to help as a unit. Soloman Fleener, Leevi McMillin, Hayden Hodge, Brody Hunt and Jager Henderson all contributed at a high level last season. The Bears should be favorites to repeat as 12th district champions this season. 8. Breckenridge County Tigers (20-10 – 11th district champions) COACH: Patrick Critchelow No one in the region has to replace as much as Breckenridge County this season. Kaveon Mitchell was tremendous in 2020 and has followed in his coaches footsteps by taking his talent to Kentucky Wesleyan. Kason Morris and Issac Seger will step into much bigger roles this season. Year in and year out, Coach Critchelow is able to find players to step up and show great development from the offseason. It will be interesting to see which Tiger that is in 2021. 9. Hancock County Hornets (10-17 – lost in the 11th district tournaments) COACH: Mike Orr The Hornets return their top scorer in Kaleb Keown this season. Keown averaged 11 points per game as a freshman a year ago. Coach Orr has a very talented and athletic sophomore class and should be in the mix for a district title this season. 10. Grayson County Cougars (10-22 – 12th district runner up) COACH: Travis Johnston The Cougars will have to replace the production lost by Nolan Shartzer this season. Coach Johnston has been able to show steady improvement in the Grayson County program since taking over a few years ago. Keegan Sharp and Hunter Tomes should have the Cougars in the mix of a district title this season. 11. Apollo Eagles (5-25 = lost in 9th district tournament) COACH: Mark Starnes Coach Starns comes aboard this season to replace Coach Steve Barker who left Apollo for Greenup County in the offseason. Coach Starns will put his focus on defense and rebounding, as Apollo has struggled to score a lot of points over the past 2 seasons. The Eagles return several key players in Dan St Clare, Cameron Frantz, Landon Hamilton, Harrison Bowman and Jaden Kelly. They will need to find more production to contend in a very top heavy 9th district. 12. Edmonson County Wildcats (12-15 – lost in the 12th district tournament) COACH: Mike McClintic The Cats lost 4 starters from last years team, including Dalton Decker who led the team in scoring. Chaz Wilson returns after leading the team in scoring an rebounding 2 years ago. He missed time last year but still put up 11 points and 7 boards per game last season. The Cats will have a chance inside an always wide open 12th district. 13. Mclean County Cougars (22-12 – Regional semifinalist) COACH: Darren Lynam Coach Lynam led Mclean County to their best season in school history and 2 major post season upsets last year. It was a magical ride with wins over Ohio County and Breckenridge County. Coach Lynam is carving out the same path he did while at Hancock County, where he also set the school record for wins in a season. The Cougars however, will have to do it this season with a new cast. They lost 7 of their top 8 scorers to graduation. Brady Dame is the lone returnee and is tremendous athlete at 6-4. They will be leaning heavily on him until the underclassmen get up to speed. The 10th district will be a tall mountain to climb with 2 of the region’s top teams in Ohio County and Muhlenberg County. 14. Whitesville Trinity Raiders (9-22 – lost in the 12th district tournament) COACH: Nathan West When you lose 6 seniors at a small school like Trinity, it always makes the rebuild a little tougher. Coach Nathan West has done a tremendous job of keeping the program competitive at the highest level of the region. Landon Huff will be the Raiders top returnee, averaging 8 points and 5 boards last season. Sophomore Denver Dickens will also help lead the Raiders this season. 15. Cloverport Aces (4-24 – lost in the 11th district tournament) COACH: Jason Hurst While Cloverport hasn’t won many games over the past few seasons, their program has shown steady improvement. A lot of that improvement last season can be directly contributed to Noah Pate. He led the region in scoring as a junior with 23 points and 9 rebounds per game last season. The Aces will be leaning heavily on him this season. All Region First Team Jai Webb – Owensboro Catholic - Jai is coming off a solid sophomore season and a tremendous postseason in which he helped lead the Aces to the state tournament. Webb averaged 13 points and 7 boards last season and you can expect those numbers to improve in his junior season. Brian Griffith – Owensboro Catholic – Griffith is a fearless point guard who can get his shot in the lane or knock down a step back 3 pointer. He led the Aces in scoring last season with 14 points per game but is capable of going for 30 any night of the season. Amari Robinson Wales – Owensboro – Wales had a bit of a slow start last season as he moved positions for the Devils. He found his footing in the last month of the season to lead Owensboro in scoring at 14 points per game. Expect him to be at or near the top of the region in scoring this season. Gavin Wimsatt – Owensboro – Gavin put up 12 points and 6 boards last season and showed a lot of versatility. He really developed his outside shooting and ability to take the ball off the dribble. If he decides to return this season, he will contend for player of the year honors. Nash Divine – Muhlenberg County – Divine proved to be one of the best pure shooters in the region last year but added the ability to get his shot anytime he wanted it. He nearly led Muhlenberg to an upset win over Owensboro in the regional semi finals before exiting with a foot injury. He put up 15 points per game as a junior and should improve on that this season. 2nd Team Kenyatta Carbon – Owensboro – Carbon improved almost every time he stepped on the floor as a freshman last year. At points during the tournament season, he became the leader for Owensboro. Kenyatta has a real chance to be the best player in the entire region if he continues his improvement this season. Elijah Decker – Ohio County – Decker’s size and smooth shooting touch makes him one of the most versatile players in the region. He should be the leader for Tony Hopper this season. Expect his scoring average of 11 points per game to rise as a junior. Trey Lovell – Muhlenberg County – averaged double figures as a sophomore with 10 points per game. He should be able to get plenty of looks playing alongside Nash Divine this season. Casey Turner –Meade County – Turner should step into the leadership role for the Waves this season. He has great size and shooting ability. He averaged 12 points per game last season and was 33% from beyond the arc. Kaleb Keown – Hancock County – Keown led the Hornets in scoring as a freshman last season. Keown averaged right at 11 points per game last season. The entire team should improve with another years experience for the young Hornets.
  5. Its been a busy couple of days but I definitely wanted to check in and say Congrats to Bowling Green. Rock solid program from top to bottom! I thought they handled their business in a very impressive way on Saturday and did it with sportsmanship through the entire ball game. I saw lots of kids helping kids up and at the end of the game, they showed a ton of class in victory. Coach Spader obviously does a tremendous job with this group. Everyone knew and executed their assignments to a T. I hope people aren't to rough on Gavin. I know he didn't have his best day. I am confident he will improve from it and come back even better in 2021. Owensboro fought and have nothing to hang their head about. I don't have any doubt they will have another deep run in them next season. Thanks to everyone who made Championship week so much fun. Time to put the finishing touches on this basketball preview! Everyone have a Merry Christmas!
  6. The group that were actually going to be taking about after this one is that Bowling Green defensive backfield. On HECK of a unit. Hats off to the Purples!!!
  7. I was just thinking the same. Breaking this game down all week and hearing everyone's respectful opinions has been a lot of fun. It's been a while since I have seen hype like this for a Western Kentucky game.
  8. They are all posted on the Owensboro Radio App under the podcast tab. Lots of Bluegrass Preps discussion. I would highly encourage Tuesday and Wednesday's shows!
  9. If anyone gets up to Lexington early tomorrow, come by KSBar for the pregame show, starting at 11 eastern time/10 central time. We'll be on for an hour to break it all down from the Owensboro prospective. While we will all lean Owensboro, there is tremendous respect for BG as well. If you have got to listen to any of the shows this week, Bowling Green has been well represented.
  10. Owensboro's schedule doesn't even compare to Bowling Green's. Not even close. When Covid happened they lost Gibson Southern( QB'd by Brady Allen who is committed to Purdue) and Henderson (Which would have been a great road test). Instead of filling those games with state powers, they decided to keep the city/county games (Apollo, DC and Catholic). Say what you want to about Apollo or Daviess County but both teams have tremendous offensive lines. Also, Daviess County had a really explosive offense when they could get out of their own way. The bottom line, at this point, the only thing the schedule is good for is for us to compare what we've seen. I will give you that I think it proves that Bowling Green's defense is the best in 5A. They have proven it at this point. I will also give you that overall for the season, it makes Owensboro a bit more of an unknown. However, all of that means absolutely nothing when it comes to what is going to happen between the lines tomorrow. Both teams beat great programs to get to this point last week and both of these teams belong in the state championship game. "Should" have lost last week is an opinion. Owensboro defeated Frederick Douglass 28-27, is a fact.
  11. Honestly, it looked like to me that the play shifted his direction and he didn't expect it and back peddled so quickly he lost an idea of where he was. He was so deep at first that he almost ran into the Owensboro kids on the sideline.
  12. We'll have to agree to disagree on that one. The film I saw had the official back up pretty deep on the sideline. Hudl had it cut off when the contact was made but Fallin looked like he was trying to get out of the way when the official headed his way. I think "clearly" is a bit of a strong opinion of the video that I saw. Just seems like a really tough spot to make that kind of call at that moment in the game with everything on the line.
  13. I am really looking forward to seeing the Burwash kid. I have heard a lot of good things about him. I always marvel at the kids that stick out like a sore thumb every single game (in a good way) and don't get recruited like you would expect them to. When @Purple88 brought him up on our show without any hesitation, I circled him on the roster sheet. We'll see how it goes, but I think come Saturday night, a lot of people are going to be talking about this Owensboro offensive line. Justin Millay is really slept on state wide. Trey Miller is a name that will ascend state rankings in the next few years. Jak Lindsey is coming off an unbelievable performance as a freshman. He was offered by UK on Saturday. Someone must have noticed. A lot of games are won and lost up front and this should be a championship level battle with the Devils OL vs the Purple People Eaters, high school edition. Lastly, unless Owensboro just turns it over time after time, I would be floored if they lost this game by 20 points or more. I saw a lot of folks saying that same stuff last week and I thought they would have proved that they can play with anyone in the state by now.
  14. Right?? Like calling a sideline interference will 1 minute left in the game to put one team deep in the others territory, down 1 point.... 😆
  15. I feel like this is a really good matchup for Owensboro. Their offense doesn't really need to run the ball much at all to be successful. Passing out of the 2 back set with Avery and Carbon out of the backfield is a nice replacement for the running game. Mix in Gavin taking what the offense gives him in the 5 WR set and the Devils offense is really hard to match up with. In the 2nd half last week, Owensboro didn't do a great job of countering Douglass's adjustments and it almost cost them. They stopped taking the underneath stuff and got a little greedy and the offense stalled often. They will need to be patient with methodical drives against this great Purples defense. The Owensboro offensive line is massively underrated and I cannot wait to see them against a great defensive line. I always look for matchups to watch during these types of games and that one will be it for me. At the end of the day for the Owensboro offense, limiting the turnovers is going to be key. They have had some this season and of course the Purples D has been historic in that category during the playoffs. I think the entire game will hinge on how many turnovers Bowling Green can force Owensboro into. IF Owensboro can keep it to 1 or less, I think they could win this game by a couple of scores. Obviously, that is a big IF. Defensively, I don't expect Gough to be in on Dingle. I would think Gough will draw the QB spy job. I would think it could be Clark or Goodwin on Dingle. If you missed it last week, go back and check out Zach Clark vs Crowdus. Kid was phenomenal. I don't know that he will draw the task, but I am confident he could do the job. If Owensboro has had a weakness this year, its getting manhandled up against the run. However, they have done a really good job at limiting the big play (sans Key last week and I'm not sure BG has a Key on the roster). I like the Owensboro's DB's to be left on islands vs these WR's and for everyone else to crowd the box and try to force Bowling Green into passing situations. I can't wait to see how this one plays out. I have no doubt that Bowling Green has been battle tested with a tremendous schedule but until otherwise, I have to roll with Gavin Wimsatt. Owensboro 21 Bowling Green 14
