Went to the previews , didn’t realize how many Itonton coaches are coaching at Rock hill now . You have mark Lutz who was groomed to take over after Bob , Lou mains who was the WB coach for years at ironton including in 89 a state championship year along with Bart and Red Burcham .

And 3 coaches have strong Coal Grove ties in Jarrod Keaton, Brian Kidd and Joe Sark. Brian Kidd, while a RH grad, spent many years coaching and teaching at arch rival Coal Grove. All good guys that will work hard.

for me it's way too early to really tell. I think burg handily wins this game. I don't see them having to wake up in the 2nd half to do it or looking ahead to next week. They may have been just as intense for week one last year with everything that was going on leading up to it As they were for week 15. I do believe ironton is better this year. They are much better conditioned which is 1/3 the battle. I also think score could indicate the game to be more lopsided than it actually will be early on but I seek burg pulling head throughout. I have seen both teams. And I feel like I got a better idea of how good ironton can be from their scrimmage than how good wheelersburg can be from their scrimmage. Burg had several potential starters not dressed and really subbed a lot of kids early. The thing ironton fans have to remember is this is not an overnight deal. They are not gonna be state contenders week 1. Bob lutz started out 0-2. If the tigers are 1-3. After week 4. It's ok. They are improving over last year. And the sophomore and junior classes are ver good. Ironton fans and players need to keep up the support of the coaching staff It's probably next year that this series becomes a rivalry again.

as much as tiger fans want this one right outta the chute. it will be a tall order for the fighting tigers. but don't think for a minute the players and coaches don't think they are in it to win it. a few breaks here and there could go along way , if they are playing fundamentally sound. a turnover at the right time, and not getting burnt deep over the top very early in the game could go a long way. watching for trickeration, onside kicks and the like. either way this will be a huge test, as well as a great gauge as to the direction coach Pendleton's squad is going. I think it will be an electric atmosphere.

If Ironton keeps it close for awhile look out this game becomes dangerous for Wheelersburg... talking to a few around the program yesterday, they truly believe the have a shot to win and they believe it’s going to happen. That’s half the battle is self belief. Wheelersburg will be playing a different Tiger mindset than what’s its been the last few years. I can’t wait, win, lose or draw this rivalry is going to be back.

As the infamous words of Herman Edwards say “You play to win the game.” I would hope they believe that. Why else play?

When Burg goes up by 14-17 points, that’s when you’ll see what kind of fight your Tigers have. Will they fold or keep chugging away. That’s the big question that I believe everyone wants answered.

There is a new energy around the Ironton program, and the community has bought in, I believe. I think the biggest thing is everyone needs to understand this is the 1st game of the new era.

Additionally you're going into the house of the defending state champ, so while being cautiously optomistic, I wouldnt go all in on the 1st game, regardless who you play, but especially Wheelersburg.

Close until mid 3rd.

obviously the pirates are a heavy favorite. defending state champs, and they have owned and tamed the tigers lately. but all that don't change anything the 24th about it being a new start for the fighting tigers , who are ready to start their own discussion on how things end up. I think this will be an extremely confident bunch. that will be strong willed and ready. can they match up with burg, who knows. that chapter is there for the taking. I hope it is a wonderful game and that this rivalry returns to the premiere game in southern ohio every year. ==================================== and congratulations to the wheelersburg 11/12 year old girl's softball team. who won THE LITTLE LEAGUE ''WORLD'' SERIES. THAT IS INCREDIBLY AMAZING TO ME. 1ST TIME I UNDERSTAND THAT AN OHIO TEAM WON THIS , BOYS OR GIRLS. MAN O MAN , THAT'S CRAZY.

More of the same. Sorry. Optimism is awesome but no way still this game is close at any point and Wheelersburg will win by at least 4 scores. Just my opinion.

This will be a great opportunity to see how they do the little things. Blocking, tackling, pursuit. To see how they handle themselves when things aren't going their way.

Something to remember - when Bob Lutz took over at Ironton in the early 70's, he lost his first two games. And he was not asked to play the defending State champs in game one. So everyone needs to be cool. Wheelersburg did not get to where it is today in 4 weeks of August practices.

The game has changed so much since lutz days. Where running the ball was 90% of the offense. Why do irontonians keep referring to lutz?

hey i know it's ancient history. but it's still cool to have a history to talk about. don't think tiger fans will ever forget all those games, nor do I expect burg ever will either. it's part of history to talk about history. though it has nothing to do with right now what so ever.

I can answer that. ''CAUSE HE COACHED THERE 40 YEARS, HE COACHED US, OUR KIDS, AND GRANDKIDS''.

THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COACH PENDLETON AT ALL. JUST AN ILLUSTRIOUS HONOR TO COACH THERE, HE'LL MAKE HIS MARK SOON ENOUGH.

I MEAN LOOK AT THOSE SCHEDULES PEOPLE. IT WAS LIKE THAT EVERY YEAR. HOW CAN YOU NOT REFLECT ON IT. JUST LIKE BURG'S 2 TITLES. NOBODY ELSE CAN TALK ABOUT THAT FOOTBALL WISE DOWN HERE, THAN BURG N IRONTON. IT'S A PURTY BIG DEAL.

I have been doin yardwork all day.just got out of the shower n scrubbed the barnacles off of me. I'm fresh as a daisy now. guess what , I'm sittin here in waverly with an ironton football tee shirt on from bob linn's sporting goods in ironton. it's no diss on waverly, I lived in ironton, played ball in ironton and graduated from ironton, my family lives in ironton all but 1 son. why wouldn't we talk about ironton football. honestly, some of you need to get a life. not everybody who mentions bob lutz or ironton football mentioned it so they can argue on the premiere site in ohio. so if we are, it may well continue. I tip my hat to coach Pendleton and his staff and wish them all the luck in the world, as I did with the previous staff.
