  1. Not by the visitors but certainly we welcome you to listen to hopefully WKRD 790 am beginning at 6:35 pm. pregame and kickoff at 7:00 pm. We haven't gotten confirmation yet on the station but you can go to saintx.com on your computer for sure.
  2. Per Bob Valvano's show today, this is a team with a good coach who is 8-0 and has an arena that seats 18,000 +. They fired the coach and are bringing in Rick. This is a perfect situation for Coach Pitino.
  3. OK I get it. $106 million wasted instead of Johnny Cueto or Mike Leake. But in 2019, the Cincinnati Reds will pay Homer Bailey $23 Million dollars. Options= A) If we trade him to another team, we will certainly have to pay part of that contract and we get no pitching from him. Plus since he is a 10 year total service and 5 with the same team, he gets to refuse the trade, if he wants to. B) Release him- 23 Million still to be paid plus the 5 million buyout next year. c) Move him to the bullpen- Homer doesn't like it and his K's have decreased with his arm injuries. Unless he develops a knuckleball, I don't think that will fly D) Pitch him every 5 days. 1-14 last year, team went 1-19 in his 20 starts. But, in those 20 starts, he got 2.82 runs support with 15 games ( 75%), he got 4 runs or less, half of them ( 50% ) 2 runs or less. 75% of his starts, he lasted 5 innings or more and faced at least 21 batters in every game. With the new pitching coach's help, maybe he can be our 5th starter. Even in last year, he still is better than Stephenson, Reed, Stephens, Romano, as an option. Converting Lorenzen or Garrett to a starter? Been there done that. So name him the 5th starter, and hope for the best. What is your thoughts?
  4. I am really looking forward to this game. We got to see Male twice this season and had our chance being tied with them in the 4th quarter, like Trinity but Garrett Dennis and Izayah Cummings pulled the game out for the Bulldogs. I was really impressed certainly with Dennis, but both crucial catches by Cummins who was double covered on both the 3rd and 22 and the TD catch. Does Scott County have DBs that are tall? Cummins is 6'3, maybe 6'4. We had success against them in the regular season game by having or QB scramble against Man coverage. Against Scott county, you have to cover Covington, the WR who has 28 of the total 41 catches on the year. Austin Barnett scored I believe 3 or 4 TDs last year in the semi-final match up and has another running threat in Bronson Brown. The earlier losses to FD and Henry Clay can be attributed to the injured QB, Cade McKee. Male's speed on defense and MVP Garrett Dennis running the RPO wins it in the 4th qtr. I have a prediction that Male will blitz from the weak side corner non-stop opposite Covington just to cause havoc in the SC backfield. In order to win, I believe SC has to put Covington into the weak side formations and throw bubble screens and quick sweeps outside to that side and have the lead going into the 4th qtr.
  5. Another explanation is the defensive sideline seems to be crowded and the team/coaches could be stepping on the chains. But the front stick seems to move from the :08 to the :10 in the video. If the kink was detected, it should of been corrected before the snap. The referee could of motioned for the first down and the line judge ( opposite chains) would of had the best look whether the line to gain was achieved. A good mechanic is to measure on all close 4th down plays, not to rush forward and give the first down or call it short.
  6. Anthony Moretti struggled but St Xavier ran the ball real well by deploying the QB Doug Bodaine as a running threat with 4 and 5 wide formations against Man coverage. Since both Male and Trinity both like to send the LBs on a blitz, and are predictable as to which one is coming, the lanes were available with a lead blocker in front of him. Overall, the grass field with rain at Male hurt the amazing team speed of Male. I expect Male to play like the #1 ranked team left in the playoffs.
  7. Winner gets 4 home games for playoffs including Trinity. Loser travels to North Hardin in round 2 and gets rematch at winner in round 3.
  8. For reference, Luke Fickell, 2nd year coach at University of Cincinnati, wouldn't allow anyone to wear University of Cincinnati gear until they earned it. Let's not forget Trinity will be the #1 seed from their district in the playoffs so to roughly quote Mark Twain, reports of their demise are greatly exaggerated and will be judged by November record, not a non-district game in September.
  9. Don't be surprised by a closer score than you think. PRP had 5 Turnovers in the first half against St Xavier. PRP graduated 9 players that are playing college football now so PRP is down but wouldn't be surprised with a 24-7 game score.
  10. While I love that St Xavier frosh are being successful, it sounds like Trinity is making alot of un-Trinity mistakes, i.e dropping punt snaps, pass interference, personal fouls, inelgible downfield, etc.
  11. That is great news. I'll be in the parking lot doing interviews before the game.
  12. Just a few names to watch on Butler's team-Tae Tae Crumes-WR, Chaz Burks- QB, Frank Caldwell-WR-P, and Eric Jackson-RB. Male was beat up in the playoff game last year- sorry to hear that they are missing 2 defensive starters.
  13. Wow, what a game! Warren Central looked like a mid major college team. Their linebackers were beasts in going to the ball. Trinity did what they had to do-worked it outside, made WC miss tackles and took it in. A lot of big plays on both sides. I thought Trinity had it wrapped up after stopping them on 4th down. I thought QB moved well in the pocket. I only heard T LBs mentioned once. Moeller won 27-14 over a team from Ontario tonight. Referees trying out the 7 man mechanic again in this game. 2 missed calls but with all of the big plays,overall they did well. Yes they stepped oob and yes, there should of been a defensive holding on Lawrence but that was a big game with a bunch of big time fast athletes.
  14. To the Rocks followers on here- we will be running 98% of the time! Remember what Woody said- only 3 things happen when you pass and 2 of them are bad....
