Northeast Ohio’s ONLY Weekly Football Preview

California Dreamin’ Buckeyes Take Aim At No. 1 USC


e-mail Dear TWIF, Well, the stage is set. When you consider that most people think Ohio State and USC will play again in the national championship game, wouldn’t it be a good idea to lose this game so that we’ll have the revenge factor on our side in the rematch? Everyone knows it’s hard to beat the same team twice in the same season. Ron, Obetz Dear Ron, You’re not the first person to suggest a Buckeye loss could be a good thing in this situation. My philosophy is that a loss is never a good thing. If anything, what might help Ohio State’s image nationally would be to win Saturday’s game at USC, have the Trojans roll through

Wouldn’t A Loss To USC Be Better For Long Run?

the rest of their schedule, and then beat the men of Troy again for added emphasis. Then no one could accuse OSU of being the Luckeyes, etc. Let’s get ‘er done! Dear TWIF, Agree or disagree: Beanie Wells wins or loses the Heisman Trophy based on his performance against USC this week. Vera, Bexley Dear Vera, Agree. Because Ohio State’s schedule is considered very weak, the USC game gives Wells his only spotlight opportunity to show how good he really is. If he plays well and then averages 135-plus yards a game the rest of the season, I’d say

the Heisman is his. And that means Archie Griffin’s intro (“The only twotime Heisman Trophy winner. . .) remains in tact. Dear TWIF, Browns fans are driving me nuts already. Please put them in their place by letting them know they’ll never win the AFC North over our beloved Steelers. T.R., New Albany Dear T.R., ‘I’m feelin’ ya brother.’ Heard one of my kids use that line and figured it fit here. Not sure, actually. But in the event I’m clueless, I will concede that the Browns do have the talent to go toe-to-toe with the Steelers. The difference may simply come down to familiarity, in that Pittsburgh is used to competing with playoff stakes on the line, while this is fairly new territory for the Browns, even though they were in the hunt last year. What I do like is that both meetings are going to be tightly-contested, just like the good old days. Go Stillers!

Dear TWIF, After beating Youngstown State and squeaking by Ohio, I’m concerned the upgrade in talent that USC has will catch Ohio State off-guard, just as LSU and Florida’s talent did the last two years. Ohio State should have played at least one decent team before heading out west. I hope I’m wrong, but I seldom am. George, Dublin Dear George, How do I argue with a man who is seldom wrong? Well, considering I’m never wrong, I guess I have the right. (Oh, how I wish!). The Buckeyes know what to expect this week, so I don’t think they’ll suffer the deer-in-the-headlights experience. This team is too experienced.

IN THE ZONE

With “the roadman” Kenny roda

Line Play Will Be Crucial For Cleveland The Cleveland Browns versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, Round 1. Let’s get ready to rumble! Yes, the rivalry is back. The intensity is ever so present. The hatred amongst these teams and its fans is at an all-time high despite the Steelers’ complete dominance over the Browns since the franchise’s return to the league in 1999. Now I don’t want to rehash those dreadful memories of recent past, but the hated Black and Gold has won nine consecutive over the Browns. In fact, the Stillers have won 15-of-16 against your Cleveland Browns, including a very painful, comefrom-behind, playoff win following the 2002 season. So here we are again. Both teams are picked to finish a top the AFC North. Both won 10 games last season and are expected to post similar win totals this year. But considering the competition in the AFC, the loser in the AFC North race will likely be watching the playoffs. Thus it’s essential for the Browns’ playoff aspirations to beat Pittsburgh at home and get the early advantage over their archrivals. Of course, saying the Browns need to win and them actually doing it are two completely different notions.

Cleveland for sure can win in spite of its recent meandering against its Steel City foes. And it all starts in the trenches. The Browns MUST win the line of scrimmage battle. Pittsburgh’s supremacy in this series can be directly attributed to its offensive and defensive line play. Off-season acquisitions Corey Williams and Shaun Rogers need to make General Manager Phil Savage look like a genius. We all knew Savage was a smart man in how he has re-stocked the talent level. But if Williams and Rogers and the rest of the defensive line man-handle Pittsburgh’s offensive line, the Einstein comparisons to Savage will commence. Offensively, quarterback Derek Anderson will need ample time to throw. Pittsburgh’s linebackers and secondary, featuring safety Troy Polamalu, are as strong as any in the NFL. So additional time for Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow to get open is absolutely crucial. As I mentioned earlier, this is the most important game of the season for the Browns, and if they believe they can win and finally learn how to finish off Pittsburgh, Cleveland is well on its way to a long elusive division crown. Shifting gears to The Ohio State Buckeyes. Due to the magnitude of Saturday’s game at USC, I feel compelled to give you my two cents and add to all

the media hype preceding this epic match-up. And I’m going out on a limb: It will be a great game. OSU and USC feature the two best defenses in the nation. And it makes perfect sense to play this game in Los Angeles, as both teams have that “star power.” The Buckeyes with Beanie Wells, James Laurinaitis and Malcolm Jenkins. The Trojans with Mark Sanchez, Rey Maualuga and Brian Cushing. While it’s a road game three time zones away against the No. 1 team in the nation, I truly feel OSU will win as long as Beanie Wells can be effective despite his foot injury, quarterback Todd Boeckman can avoid turnovers and Terrelle Pryor can be that added dimension to the Buckeye offense. Let’s hope all that comes to fruition and the Buckeyes come back to Columbus with a gigantic, nationally viewed, 27-24 victory.

Browns Game Day

Scouting Report: The Pittsburgh Steelers

by marty gItlin

Browns Look To Reverse Fortunes Against Steelers It’s the chicken-egg thing. The Browns can’t beat the Steelers unless they believe they can beat the Steelers. But they can’t believe they can beat the Steelers until they beat the Steelers. Got it? At least that’s the way it seems. The Browns have lost nine consecutive games and 15 of the last 16 to an archrival that has dominated the series so much that it doesn’t even consider the Browns to be an archrival anymore. Included during that 16-game stretch were some of the most ghastly performances in recent franchise history, such as the mistake-filled 34-7 defeat to open 2007 and the 41-0 Christmas Eve debacle in 2005. The stakes have been raised this season. No longer is Cleveland considered to be Wide Receiver Pittsburgh’s patsy. Both are Santonio Holmes viewed as playoff contenders. But the Browns have often saved their worst football for their Steel City foes, often in front of friendly fans, and only a victory can begin to erase the painful memories. It won’t be easy. Though the Steelers appear far less domineering than they have been in recent years and are showing some age spots, they still feature quality players at most positions and have actually been infused with promising young talent, including wideout and former Ohio State standout Santonio Holmes, who has emerged as the featured receiver.

There is no understating the importance of this game to the Browns. Not only does it represent a two-game swing in the standings, but a victory would signify the legitimacy of their status as a potential champion of the AFC North. Though stranger things have happened in the NFL, it would seem that Pittsburgh and Cleveland are clearly the class of the division.

BROWNS OFFENSE VS. STEELERS DEFENSE

Aside from the first half of their second meeting, Pittsburgh shut down the highpowered Cleveland offense last year. The Steelers’ defensive strengths – a relentless pass rush, a sticky secondary and the ability to stop the run – all combined to prevent Cleveland from overwhelming them offensively as the Browns did to many of their 2007 opponents. Nothing seems to have changed, though, the Browns have added Donté Stallworth to their receiving corps, which will prevent the Steelers from double-teaming Braylon Edwards and will also give explosive tight end Kellen Winslow more room to roam. The return to health of strong safety Troy Polamalu, however, should again give Pittsburgh one of the league’s more effective defensive backfields. Add to the mix another year of experience for blossoming Pro Bowl linebacker James Harrison, who is a tremendous pass rusher, and it becomes obvious the Browns will have a difficult time running and throwing the ball. Bruising Browns back Jamal Lewis and the most improved offensive line in 2007 must perform well for the team to harbor any hopes of winning the division. The Cleveland running game must prove a threat to prevent Pittsburgh from adding numbers to its pass coverage. The Browns offense couldn’t find any continuity during the preseason because of injuries to Edwards, Winslow, Lewis and quarterback Derek Anderson. SLIGHT ADVANTAGE: Browns

STEELERS OFFENSE VS. BROWNS DEFENSE

During the preseason, it might not have mattered had the Browns defensive backs lined up against Larry, Curly and Moe. They still would have been beaten deep. It remains to be seen if the additions of Shaun Rogers and Corey Williams to the line will translate into an improved pass defense.

Rogers is quite mobile for a 350-pounder. Pittsburgh featured back Willie Parker might not contribute his usual 1,200-plus yards this season because of the addition of rookie Rashard Mendenhall. Like it really matters. As history shows, any back wearing a black-and-gold uniform has run roughshod over Cleveland. And if the Browns can’t figure out a way to place the reins on the Pittsburgh running game, their 10th consecutive defeat to their hated rivals is a sealed fate. ADVANTAGE: Steelers

SPECIAL TEAMS

This is where the Browns hold a distinct advantage, especially if special teams specialist Joshua Cribbs is ready to go. Cribbs is not only the most dangerous kickoff returner in the NFL, he’s also strong on punt returns and is among the best special teams tacklers in the game. The Steelers’ kick return units, on the other hand, were among the worst in the NFL last season. They hope Mendenhall will thrive as a kickoff returner and that recently signed Mitch Berger will prove to be a steady punter. The only sure bet, however, is place-kicker Jeff Reed, who nailed 24-of-26 field goal attempts in 2007. One of his misses was from 65 yards out. The Browns match up well at place-kicker with Phil Dawson, who like a fine wine appears to be improving with age. Punter Dave Zastudil must prove that his inconsistency in 2007 was a result of a lack of rhythm after he returned from injury, and not a trend. ADVANTAGE: Browns

Cats & Dawgs GREGG DOYEL

Who knows more about the NFL — The Bengals media or the Browns media? Let’s find out as Gregg Doyel and Kenny Roda go at it like Cats and Dawgs all season long.

baltimore

Kenny Roda

Gregg Doyel writes about sports daily for CBS Sports.com and he has written two books on topics that are immaterial to the focus of this fine magazine.

Houston. Over/under on the number of Ravens QB’s knocked out of this stinker by Houston DE Mario Williams: Two.

“The Roadman” brings a real sports perspective to real sports fans as he leads his “Road Crew” every afternoon with the best sports talk on WKNR Radio, and was named Cleveland’s Best Sports Talker in Scene Magazine’s 2006 Best of Cleveland issue.

tennessee

AT

Tennessee. The Bengals defense can’t tackle human beings, and Vince Young isn’t mortal. Sounds like an easy win for the visitors.

pittsburgh

cincinnati

indianapolis

Tennessee. No Willie Anderson and no Rudi Johnson equals a hurting Bengal offense and a Tennessee road win.

AT

Cleveland. Just because Cleveland is going to win this game - and it will - doesn’t change the fact that the Steelers are going to win the division.

cleveland

AT

Houston. I’ll take QB Matt Schaub over Joe Flacco or whoever else the Ravens try to thrust behind center.

AT

Minnesota. The Vikings win after getting DE Jared Allen for such an occasion. Jared, there’s Peyton. Sic’em!

philadelphia

Pittsburgh. In order to be the man, you’ve got to beat the man. Until you do, I’m picking against you.

houston

minnesota

Indianapolis. I’m banking on Indy’s offense being in tack - most especially the injured Peyton Manning.

dallas

AT

Dallas. How can Dallas lose? Pacman Jones isn’t even the most annoying cornerback in this game. That would be the Eagles’ Lito Sheppard.

Dallas. Home-field advantage and Jessica Simpson providing the spark for QB Tony Romo is all the Cowboys need in this one.

Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech Beamer’s Boys Back

There’s a young man playing for little ole West Liberty State in Wheeling, W. Va., that Virginia Tech could really use right now. Seriously. Though the Hokies rebounded from its surprising opening day loss to East Carolina by beating Furman last week, Beamer’s Boys aren’t quite the same now that last year’s leading rusher, Brandon Ore, is now a West Lib Hilltopper. But give Coach Frank Beamer credit. Ore was into some bad stuff and the coach didn’t excuse it. Thus, we hope the Hokies get it together.

PREDICTION: Virginia Tech 27-16 Master Insight “I like Georgia Tech’s new coach. The win at Boston College was something special, but to follow that up with a win at Virginia Tech with such a young team is too much to ask.” – Vince Dooley

As a matter of... FACT

New Ga. Tech Coach Paul Johnson has inherited a young but talented team in which to implement his ‘run first’ spread offense. Of 110 players on the roster, 75 are freshmen or sophomores, including 26 true frosh.

#11 Kansas at #18 South Florida

These Teams Are For Real!

This is the best game of the young season no one is paying attention to. If you thought Kansas and USF were one-year wonders, think again. Players and coaches from both teams could look you square in the eye and declare they are title contenders. Laughing are you? Well, both climbed as high as No. 2 in the polls last year. The Bulls return 18 starters, the Jayhawks 15. Both have outstanding veteran quarterbacks who led high-scoring offenses. Give the slight edge to the Jayhawks because they’re stronger defensively (nine starters back).

PREDICTION: Kansas 37-23 Master Insight “Both are programs on the rise, but I think Kansas is a little more battle-tested than USF. This is a coin-toss game, but I like Kansas because of its defense.” – Dick MacPherson

As a matter of... FACT

The Chronicle of Higher Education listed the recruiting budgets of every FBS football program and No. 18 USF spent the least amount of recruiting money of any. That should give you an indication of how much talent there is in the state of Florida.

OPINION

According to the same report, Tennessee spent the most amount on recruiting, more than $2 million. The Vols haven’t won a conference or national title since 1998. Perhaps money really can’t buy happiness.

powerade previewS Michigan at Notre Dame

Keeping Bowl Hopes Alive

A game with so little importance has never received so much attention. College football’s two all-time winningest programs battle to gain the inside track to a middle tier bowl game. Though both teams are coming off victories, general consensus is that this is a train wreck waiting to happen because neither team has any playmakers on offense or defense. Michigan has posted blow-out wins the last two years. Not so this year, but a win is a win is a win. . .

PREDICTION: Michigan 24-21 Master Insight “Both teams are still under some transition, though there’s a lot more pressure on Notre Dame to win this game. If the Irish defense is as good as some think it is, they’ll pull out a win in a lowscoring contest.” – John Cooper

As a matter of... FACT

After failing to negotiate a brutal 2007 schedule which included four of the first six games on the road, the Irish return 18 starters and host four of their first five games this fall.

OPINION

Irish suck-up Lou Holtz says the Irish will win 11 games this season. We’ll go with six, with three of ND’s losses coming against Big Ten foes Michigan, Michigan State and Purdue.

Arkansas at #8 Texas

Texas A Title Contender Newsflash: After two games, Bobby Petrino is still the head football coach at Arkansas. It’s true. The man who bolted as coach of the Atlanta Falcons with three games left in the 2007 season is now a Hog. Appropriately so, as anyone who knows him will say Bobby is all about Bobby. The 2-0 Hogs, playing as many as 15 true freshmen, likely won’t win another game this season. Mack Brown’s Longhorns, with 14 starters back, including quarterback Colt McCoy, is under everyone’s radar. Not for long.

PREDICTION: Texas 55-10 Master Insight “This used to be a tremendous rivalry, but this game won’t be competitive beyond the first quarter. This is one of the few easy games on Texas’ schedule, and Colt McCoy should have a big day.” – Hayden Fry

As a matter of... FACT

This is the ninth consecutive year Texas has opened the season with a top 10 ranking, and the Horns have been ranked in the USA Today Coaches Poll for a nation’s best 153 straight weeks. UT has been ranked in the first and final coaches’ poll in all 10 of Mack Brown’s seasons in Austin.

This Week in Football • northeast ohio edition • Volume 4, Issue 3

OPINION

A top 10 finish this year will be a challenge. Nine opponents played in bowl games last year. Moreover, UT’s fourth defensive coordinator in as many years is trying to improve a group that gave up an average of 38 points over the final four games in 2007.

powerade previewS UCLA at #15 BYU

Third Time’s A. . . BYU Win These two teams are playing for the third time in the last calendar year. The Bruins prevailed during the 2007 season, but the Cougars got revenge in the Las Vegas Bowl. While first-year UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel is already working his magic, via an opening day upset win over Tennessee, BYU is once again enjoying the dominating LaVell Edwards years of old under Coach Bronco Mendenhall. With 15 starters back, the Cougs are thinking BCS bowl. We are, too.

PREDICTION: Brigham Young 31-20 Master Insight “With a win, UCLA could serve notice that the rebuilding under Rick Neuheisel is complete after just two games. However, BYU is thinking BCS bowl and is at home.” – Terry Donahue

As a matter of... FACT

BYU, ranked in the preseason polls for the first time since 1997, owns the nation’s longest winning streak at 12 games. The Cougars have won 13 straight home games, and 16 consecutive Mountain West Conference contests.

OPINION

If BYU beats UCLA, you can look forward to a season-ending showdown between the Cougars and Utah. Both will be unbeaten, with a berth in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl on the line.

#2 Georgia at South Carolina

’Ole Ball Coach Getting Really, Really Old

The ol’ ball coach may simply be getting too old. Mr. Smug’s boys laid an egg at Vanderbilt last week and now have to face national title-contending Georgia. The Dawgs head to Columbia with revenge on their minds following last season’s loss to the Gamecocks in Athens. Plus, Georgia has all-everything running back Knowshon Moreno to dissect a USC defense that can’t stop the run.

PREDICTION: Georgia 31-13 Master Insight “Never count out a Steve Spurrier team, but you have to wonder how devastating that loss to Vanderbilt will prove to be on the Gamecocks. I expect Georgia to put the game in Moreno’s hands and win quite handily.” – Pat Dye

As a matter of... FACT

Georgia is tied with LSU for the SEC’s best record over the last six seasons (65-15) and has the best record (108-32) over the last 11. The Bulldogs are also the only SEC team to be ranked in the final AP poll the last 11 seasons.

This Week in Football • northeast ohio edition • Volume 4, Issue 3

OPINION

UGA Coach Mark Richt, 73-18 in eight seasons, has accomplished virtually everything except win a national title. He set a school record with a 13win season in 2002, but had to settle for a No. 3 ranking, as Ohio State went 14-0 to win it all. 15

the injured John David Booty, shook off a ‘preseason’ knee dislocation by passing for 338 yards and three touchdowns against the Cavaliers. He completed 26-of-35 passes, including 12 straight at one point. He was named Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts. Sanchez’ top targets are returning wideouts Patrick Turner and Vidal Hazelton. C.J. Gable, Joe McKnight, Allen Bradford and Stafon Johnson are all dangerous runners. Gable had a 33-yard dash for a score against Virginia. Fortunately, Ohio State matches up well with the Trojan offense. Sanchez is no slug, but he’ not likely to hurt the Buckeyes with his scrambling. We’d like to see the Buckeyes force the issue by bringing a multitude of blitzes. Coming off a four-interception outing against Ohio, the Buckeyes should be feeling more opportunistic than usual. And they’ll need to be because it may likely take a defensive score for the Buckeyes to win. Advantage: Ohio State

SPECIAL TEAMS

Though we’re not nearly ready to declare Ohio State’s special teams anywhere close to special, we will upgrade them to ‘good.’ And that’s a far cry from last season’s ‘abysmal.’ Though Ryan Pretorious had a rough afternoon against the Bobcats, missing an extra point and field goal, he’ll be fine on the left coast. Gotta love Ray Small, who came up big with a punt return for a TD last week. Note: It may also take a special teams score for Ohio State to win this game.

Bucksline John Corby

I usually try to be funny in making my pick, but this game isn’t funny. This game is the season. OSU has had its share of trouble on the left coast but I’m going to say the defense wins it. OSU 24-21.

Members of 610WTVN Radio in Columbus offer their predictions and comments on the Ohio State game.

Matt McCoy

USC is 26-1 against non-conference teams since 2002. The one loss was in the national championship against Texas. It will take something heroic like that to win this game. USC 24-20.

Larry Larson

Two outstanding programs and two outstanding teams. The kicking game and the Ohio State defense make the difference. OSU 20-10.

Dave Purdy

USC has lost only one home game in five years! A huge challenge for even the most veteran of Buckeye teams. The defense must attack USC QB Mark Sanchez and keep the score in the 20’s. OSU 27-24.

Dave Maetzold

OSU needs to roll its own version of the Trojan horse into SoCal. A sneak attack from Beanie and Boeckman mixed with a weapon named Pryor gives Ohio State a claim to the No. 1 ranking. OSU 20-13.

Joel Riley

I’m on vacation, but I’m still a homer. OSU 24-23.

And punter A.J. Trapasso is still A.J. Trapasso. He’ll get ‘er done. USC’s kicking game is solid. Kicker David Buehler converted all seven PATs and nailed a field goal in the opener. Advantage: Even

INTANGIBLES

Ohio State has the ‘us against the world’ battle cry working for it, but it’s not a friendly world. In fact, it’s ugly out there.

THE WAY WE SEE IT

If you re-read this preview, you’ll notice that we think it’ll take a defensive and special teams score for Ohio State to win. Not impossible, but not likely. However, the Buckeyes will battle the Trojans to the wire and at least gain national credibility. And that will be key when they’re lobbying against three other one loss teams for the right to play USC in the national title game. So all is not lost.

USC 24-20

Ohio Northern Polar Bears at North Central College Cardinals The Ohio Northern Polar Bears head to Naperville, Ill., to take on the North Central College Cardinals in what should be a compelling nonconference match-up of very strong teams. The nationally ranked No. 8 Cardinals are the preseason favorites to win its conference, the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin. Meanwhile, the No. 16 Polar Bears are picked by the coaches to finish second in the OAC and return 13 starters from last year’s nationally ranked 7-3 team. Yes, this will be one to watch!

R.J. Meadows Ohio Northern Polar Bears Position: Running back Ht: 6-0, Wt: 215 Grade: Senior Noteworthy: Meadows, a physically punishing runner out of Hendersonville, Tenn., is a two-time First Team All-OAC and All-Region selection and has rushed for 2,552 yards and 33 touchdowns during 26 career games for the Polar Bears.

PANTHER PREVIEW

Campbellsville Tigers

Panthers In Midseason Form

Just what the Campbellsville Tigers needed. The Ohio Dominican Panthers will be well-rested and hungry to play some football following a bye week as they take on the 0-1 Tigers. Campbellsville is also coming off a bye, but without the momentum ODU will carry into this non-conference clash. The Tigers opened the season with a 48-38 loss to Cumberland. ODU, meanwhile, looks as if in midseason form after beating Marian College, 70-7, during Week 1.

Northeast Ohio High School Previews the big three

Presents

By Marty Gitlin

Mentor (2-1) at St. Ignatius (2-1)

How rude! Never mind that St. Ignatius destroyed Buffalo Canisius 52-7 in 2006. Forget that they added insult to injury by clobbering Canisius again last year, 64-0. But blanking a Canisius team that was unveiling its new sports complex, 40-0, Saturday night? That is not being a friendly guest! Indeed, the Wildcats have now outscored the Crusaders, 156-7, in three games. The villains in the latest debacle were senior quarterback Andrew Holland, who fired four touchdown passes, and senior wideout Joey Parris, who caught three of them. Mentor will provide far better competition as evidenced in its thrilling 26-24 defeat of area power Solon. Sophomore Mike Korecz rushed for 140 yards and the defense registered eight sacks. An interception on the second-to-last play of the game clinched the victory.

Prediction: St. Ignatius 31, Mentor 24

Nordonia (3-0) at Brunswick (3-0)

The Knights deserve some shining armor. Nordonia has not only followed up its 10-2 season of a year ago with this year’s 3-0 record, but it bumped off Kenston last week, 38-3. The Knights showed tremendous balance in the process as five different players worked their way into the end zone. Meanwhile, quarterback Demetrius Craig passed for 149 yards and two touchdowns in just 11 attempts and John Hamilton added 121 yards on the ground. The stakes and level of competition will be raised when they travel to Brunswick, as the Blue Devils average 41 points a game. Their latest triumph was a 38-37 squeaker over Brecksville-Broadview Heights in which Britt Musial scored the winning touchdown in overtime. Musial finished with 123 yards on the ground while Brunswick, as a team, finished with 406 yards of total offense.

Prediction: Brunswick 34, Nordonia 31

TI M E S HAV E C HAN G E D. O U R P E P P E R O N I P IZZA HAS N’T! 1963

2008

Solon (2-1) at Mayfield (2-1)

The Comets have rocketed into the playoffs in nine consecutive years and that streak is destined to reach double figures in 2008. Now to the bad news – the 26-24 loss to Mentor. Solon did receive a strong performance from quarterback Jake Voigt, who passed for 211 yards and a touchdown. And the Comets are strong along the lines with Justin Woo and Andy McGill manning both sides. Running back/linebacker Joe Janasek is also a key contributor. Mayfield Coach Larry Pinto always seems to extract the most out of the Wildcats’ potential. But their unbeaten season went down the drain in a 21-14 loss to Olmsted Falls. Falls tallied the winning touchdown in the closing minutes. The Wildcats feature seven returning starters on defense, but just two on offense from a team that reached the Division II state semifinals in 2007.

Prediction: Mayfield 17, Solon 14

THREE MORE to watch Cardinal Mooney (2-1) at Warren G. Harding (3-0)

A team can do one of two things after losing its first game. It can lick its wounds and bounce back or it can slither into a corner and let it affect its next performance. The Cardinals obviously opted for the former. After an opening-week defeat at Mentor, they have been absolutely devastating. They have outscored their last two opponents, 11614, which includes a 59-14 pounding of perennial power Elyria Catholic last week. Cardinal Mooney is blossoming on offense, but its defense has also been impressive. The best of the bunch is defensive tackle Johnny Simon, who is headed to Ohio State. The Cardinals lost several major Division I college players from last year’s Division IV state finalists, but aren’t playing like it these days. Harding is also on a roll, having won each of its first three games, including an eye-opening 21-6 home victory over Buchtel Week 2.

Donatos Delivers You To The Sidelines!

Prediction: Warren G. Harding 21, Cardinal Mooney 20

REGISTER TO WIN

Archbishop Hoban (2-1) at St. Vincent-St. Mary (2-1)

Let’s see … does LeBron James still play for the Fighting Irish? Or is he doing something else these days? Hmmmmm…. If he’s not, St. Vincent-St. Mary certainly could have used him last week. Wide receiver James might have been able to change the result of the 14-13 loss to Akron Garfield as St. Vincent-St. Mary was at a handicap. Not only was it playing without James, but starting quarterback Vince Pelini was sidelined as well with a shoulder injury. The Irish do have two talented receivers in Todd Culver and David Lee. Hoban fared no better, following up an impressive victory over Walsh Jesuit with a 28-3 loss to the always strong Louisville Leopards. In the process, Hoban gave up touchdown passes of 48 and 47 yards. Still, Hoban is just one victory away of matching last season’s win total.

Howland (1-2) at Canfield (1-2)

Overtime. Not a friendly word to either of these teams last weekend. Howland fell to Hubbard, 13-7. Canfield lost to Alliance, 23-20. Both in overtime. Howland has now doubled its loss total from a year ago, when it won 11 of 12 games and was eliminated in the second round of the playoffs. Canfield appeared to be in good shape against Alliance when placekicker Billy Fisher booted a 29-yard field goal in overtime, but the defense simply couldn’t hold during in the second loss in three games. The Cardinals do boast some strong defensive players, including end Dan Banna, defensive back Dominic Rich and linebacker Dustin Brode.

This Is Going To Hurt Me More Than It Will Hurt You

Presents

The

Final Word

With Mark “Munch” Bishop

MUNCH ON THIS… As many of us have heard from parents, teachers and coaches, “This one is going to hurt me more than it is going to hurt you.” I started following the Buckeyes in 1968, when neighbor LARRY ZELINA became a member of the Super Sophs, and cried in 1969 when former Solon High grad Jim Mandich led the u of m over OSU in 1969, so PLEASE, keep the word “fair weather” out of this, BUT, as Brian Hartline noted in the post game press conference after OSU’s 26-14 win over Ohio, “THAT WAS PATHETIC!” I also love and respect Jim Tressel for what he stands for, “God, Family, Grades, then Football,” but why is it that after yesterday’s game I am wondering why I saw rookie coaching blunders and a team not ready to play?! Also, PLEASE, Mo Wells, respect OHIO but do not say “they were a great team!” Frank Solich is a Cleveland Holy Name guy and I would never disparage him (and YES, he got “jobbed” losing his gig at Nebraska!). BUT, he has a middle of the pack MAC team! What were the Bucks doing when...

Mark “Munch” Bishop brings an energy and charisma to afternoon sports that can only be done by a true fan. he lives and dies with every local team and can talk as knowledgably about the Browns of the Jim Brown or the Tim Couch era. “Munch” has been a household name in Cleveland Radio for more than 25 years and is a huge Buckeye supporter.

*They ran two times into the line after the great interception by Lawrence Wilson? GO FOR THE JUGULAR after a turn over! *Mo Wells ran the ball on fourth and one? Wells got the start and I was all for that PLUS I was relieved when he did not come back in after the turnover, but yes, he came back and ran the ball on fourth and one! COME ON! *Not only did Tressel allow Ryan Pretorius (as I was told) to talk him into trying a 43-yard field goal into the wind (who IS the coach here), but Ryan was the WRONG choice! Aaron Pettrey has the stronger leg and hit from 54 yards the week before. Use him! *IF the punt is the most important play in football (which I vehemently disagree with), then why not punt and pin OU back? Fortunately, Solich decided to go in UP at the half and not try to come down and score. *They had FIVE wide outs in the game when it was third and one? If you must do this, have Terrelle Pryor in! Also, if the Buckeyes value the

punt that much, why can’t our punter put the ball in the coffin corner? OU’s punter placed it there! I must also note the fumble by OU on the punt helped OSU get that go ahead score and I loved Ray Small’s return. So yes, the PUNT is part of the game and it did help OSU yesterday in the long run! Yes, I AM READY FOR USC, but are the Buckeyes? I do not want this game to be a repeat of the last two REALLY BIG games (national championship games). COME TO PLAY, GAME PLAN, MAKE ADJUSTMENTS. We all know the “football world” and national media are “licking their chops” to blast the Buckeyes. The team (coaches and players) need to make sure this does not happen. How do we silence detractors? With a WIN! I must also add it would help to be competitive no matter what the score! My best, and GO BUCKS AND BROWNS!
