Burrow was not on the 2011 playoff team
3 trips to post season with that group
Coach Skinner's son was the QB in 2011.

I think some of these posts contradict what is being said previously.
4 trips to playoffs since joining the TVC
Only 1 in what, 100 years playing in the SEOAL?

Like I said, AD & coaches know what they are doing. Don't stub your toe at Fairland and 2018 would be 5 trips in 8 years.

During the 90s when Athens was still in the league they lost their last eight games playing Logan. The average score for those eight games was 44.7 to 11.4.
During 1970 thur 1984 when Logan wasn't play very good football they had 5 seasons where they played better than 500 ball. [1978 season cancelled] In those fourteen years Logan went 9-3-2 against Athens. Out scored Athens an average of 23.3 to 10.1....In those 14 years Logan played right at 500 ball.

I don't understand people's logic besides the typical TVC bashing. Athens plays two old SEOAL schools and they offer no points. Alexander is worth 3.5 times more points than Logan

Not speaking for them but LOGIC from poobear, noreply, myself and others says that a 8-2, 9-1 TVC Athens doesn't deserve a playoff berth in DIII in the state of Ohio on a yearly basis. That's all.

If Athens doesn't make the playoffs it is their own fault. They are in a very good small conference, not because of Logan or anyone else they play outside of the TVC. Outside of the TVC games Athens, right now, needs to schedule programs that usually have winning records. I don't think they will do that because to do so they would have to go against the reason they started the downfall of the SEOAL. Athens should be playing teams like Jackson, Sheridan, Chillicothe and maybe Waverly.

A little honesty in all of these posts without a bunch of spin and fake news would be nice.

2 of those 4 trips came with what will very likely prove to be the best squad that Athens will ever field. A former squad with a current starting QB for SEC powerhouse LSU, a BIG 10 player at Northwestern and a LOT of other role players. Chance are that won't happen very often and chances are better than not it won't happen again. Even with those (2) 10-0 years and the great runs you made as I recall you were the 4 or 5 seed entering Week 11. There is a reason why, and I believe one of those years Jackson was also a 10-0 seed and barely above you.

When 10-0 puts you in middle of pack, and 9-1 puts you on the bubble there is a reason. Heck 5-4 (9 games) Bishop Watterson made the playoffs in 2015, but look at their schedule.

Everyone (well everyone that is objective) know why the move was made by Athens (hint it wasn't gas prices). In fairness to Athens it was't 100% because of competition. But Athens people need to quit making it sound like it was 100% about something else (and especially the gas price argument, that's dumb).

A lot of people have made mention of it. When you have Jackson, Chillicothe, Logan, Gallia and Athens within basically an hour or less circle of you (ok maybe not GA/Logan) then Weeks 1-4 should be most if not all of some of those games. Then at 9-1 or 10-0 there probably is zero need to worry - for Athens or anyone else for that matter. You can relive some of the "glory" of the SEOAL by taking Athens, GA, Jackson, Logan and starting your season with some of those games, even some Thursday or Saturday games to let old SEOAL fans come watch them play.

Just an opinion, but I lived through the heyday of the rivalries as a fan and in some sports as a player. It was fun. No one is going to tell me that 1980's or 90's match up against Athens-Logan was not exciting with some good banter. Can you imagine 1992 Athens and Logan if a thing called Twitter existed lol...talk about shenanigans and smack talk. The SEOAL was fun for 90% of its existence let's not make it sound like it wasn't.

Meanwhile the FAC this year has some good rivalries started - Hillsboro and Jackson and Jackson and Chilli starting to develop some "good" "dislike" for each other lol, I am sure Athens and some of their TVC opponents feel the same way.

By the way I pick Athens this week. Wellston has given them some close games last couple of years but I don't think this is one of those years.

There, hijacked thread is back on track.

It was a lot more competitive & balanced league with more $ in the stands for sure. You never have rivalries when it's nearly always one sided. The Logan game was a 7 pointer this year with only one win under their belt. That says a lot right there.

I bet Logan, Jackson, and Gallia went to state a lot in such a great league. Those teams would never lose by 30 week 11 and then that team loses by 30 week 12..... oh wait

At least they played in the playoffs all those years. In the last 35 years Athens was in the SEOAL (1972-2007)they won 2 co-championships and in their 1 playoff game got beat 42-0. They never won an outright title , that's why they jumped ship. Ironton won 7 titles in that timeframe and they left the league the first time in 1984. Then Jackson, Gallipolis and Logan all won multiple titles and Marietta and Warren even won 1 or 2. "COMPETITIVE"

And the TVC Athens county has been to state 4 times since 13. Played some of the states greatest programs and you are talking like playing average teams that always get blown out in the playoffs is a big deal

Wellston looks like 100% run. Athens run defense is very good. If Wellston can’t throw the ball this will be over fast
