Waverly 34 Logan 20

Post by smurray » Sat Oct 20, 2018 10:56 am

It’s crazy, week 10 is here and still so much to play for.
Logan is a very dangerous 1-8 team, taking Chillicothe to OT tied at 0, losing a close game to Athens and Zanesville.
They make the long trip to 8-1 Waverly with the hopes of knocking off the Playoff bound Tigers and somewhat salvage their season.
The Tigers have rebounded from the loss to Wheelersburg with two very impressive wins over West & Minford and currently sit at the #4 spot in Region 16. With a win over Logan and just a little help the Tigers hope to be hosting a first round playoff game. Tigers could maybe conceivably get to the #3 spot if everything works out the way it could or they could also drop to 7-8 with a loss to Logan. TIGERS PLAYING FOR ALOT THIS COMING FRIDAY.

There is so much to play for it is kinda crazy. It is senior night and the Tigers can't worry about where and who they will play in Week 11 because they have Logan Friday night. smurray chronicled their close games and they will be looking to play spoiler. All the scenarios will play out in the next week, starting Sat (10/20) with West traveling to Hebron Lakewood to face of with Wheeling Central Catholic.

Tigers will win, by how much depends on if they are focused, or if they are already looking ahead to the Playoffs.

Hard to believe that week ten of the high school football season is upon us. Waverly has far exceeded my expectations of at best a five win season based on graduation losses from 2017. Logan's record is deceiving based on strength of schedule. Waverly is going to have to play to the best of their ability to defeat the Chieftans . The Tigers prevail 34-28.

Chiefs "D" keeps this one a winnable game - the D has been outstanding the 2nd half of the season ... Offensively - Spatar was back behind center vs Watterson but the junior signal caller wasn't 100% ... was still tough to grip the ball and throw it down field ... look for BOTH the Defense AND the O to show up for a full game, minus those pesky drive stalling penalties ... don't be surprised if the Purple hands Waverly their 2nd loss of the season ...

Man this is a tough one to pick. Logan has played a much tougher then Waverly plus they're D2 and have seen athletes just as good if not better then Waverly. I worry a bit about the LOS for Waverly, Waverly with a bunch on the line going to take them in a close one 21-20. Hope ppl look at that Logan schedule and not record.

Waverly wants to keep that 4 seed and a home game. Waverly wins in a close one. Logan plays tough

Waverly with a lot more to lose in this one. With a Tiger win they could conceivably move up to the three spot which could be a big difference playing the 6 rather than the 5. With a Tiger loss they could drop to the 8 and traveling to a Wyoming or Clinton Massie.
Waverly CANNOT take Logan lightly. The Chieftans will be a challenge for the Tigers indeed. Waverly must focus and prepare for them like they have the past two weeks with West and Minford - and pull out all the stops..

With Logan's schedule and size difference, I want to say Logan. Logan has the athletes to win this game regardless of record. And should win with the athleticism alone, regardless of the coaching. The defense kept Logan in most games, but the offense............. Its quite literally mind numbing to watch the offense. To quote a MVL poster on another board, "Logan is a dumpster fire of cluelessness".

Waverly 35
Logan 13

The Chiefs might score 2 TD and our defense will play fair and will hold Waverly to less than 30 in the final game of this era! Start the search as soon as possible! :mrgreen:

Changes? What changes? What makes anyone think the powers that be believe blowing up the program is warranted. I sit in the stands. I don't know what the admin thinks. They might look at Logan competing better in games and stay the course. That's a lot easier than confrontation.

If you are a Tiger fan, I think this game makes you nervous. It is scary facing a team who has a bad record but have faced so many really good opponents and they should not be taken lightly one bit. What are Logan's strengths/weaknesses? What kind of offense do they run? Is there D better against the pass or run?

If ever there was a team better than their record indicated...it's Logan. Seven of the eight teams that beat Logan have a winning record. Those seven teams have a combined record of 52-11. Three of those teams are 8-1 and one is 9-0. Logan has some close losses to some excellent teams! Their only loss to a team that does not have a winning record was to 4-5 Bishop Watterson.

Waverly hasn't played a school as large as Logan in years. This game will certainly be a challenge. Waverly has looked good the last couple of games. Our defense is playing their best ball of the season. The Tigers have a lot on the line this Friday. A decent chance at a home playoff game if they win. For all intents and purposes.....This Friday against Logan is a playoff game. Go Tigers!!

Logan has played - IMO - a top 3 most difficult schedule in school history.

But I will also say that I think against an "average" schedule - this team would probably be a 3-5 win team. The team that we've seen the second half of the season would have gone 5-5 while the team from the first half would have gone 3-7.


Waverly should take Logan seriously - but the Tigers are a great team - and will have too much for Logan.

Logan's team is a tale of two seasons, really. Through the first four weeks they weren't really good at anything.

After losing to Sheridan, the team changed up the offense (from a spread to a veer/option) - and not only has the offense been better but the defense has come on in leaps and bounds. Still, this isn't a "great" team as you can obviously see from their record.

And close losses are great and all, but Logan hasn't led any of these games in the second half. So they have been a long way from winning any of them.



Logan's strengths:
OFFENSE -
QB is a perfect "option" quarterback. Determined runner, low center of gravity, really starting to understand his reads.

Running back is a good strong runner. I think he spend a few weeks with a nagging injury, but played his best game of the season last week.

Receivers are good. Above average blockers and good at getting open and catching passes.

Offensive line is good when they don't commit mental mistakes.

DEFENSE -
Defensive line has decent depth. Have players who can really cause problems.

Linebackers are hugely improved. The outside linebacker - when he plays aggressive but without getting out of position - is in on a lot of plays.

The secondary is athletic and can make plays.


WEAKNESSES:

OFFENSE:
Have to stay on schedule. Logan commits a ton of penalties and the QB doesn't have the arm to get the team out of trouble.

Still learning the offense. You'll still see the team get of schedule because of miscommunications between ballcarriers.

Offensive line is inconsistent. Very much a momentum offense - but commits to many penalties (false starts, holds).

One dimensional. Very limited in the pass game (in either offense).

DEFENSE:
Across the board, the purple and white have players who occasionally take plays off.

The defense can have pre-snap alignment issues and miscommunications in coverage. This is a place Waverly can exploit.

LInebackers can struggle to avoid/get off of blocks.

Can be susceptible to misdirection, screens, and draws.

Logan did make recent changes to the boys and girls basketball program - in spite of some relative success.

But I agree I'm not sure that the admin/school board see a problem (beyond talent) in the football program, so I don't expect any changes.

It's kind of sad to see such a storied program fall so hard. Especially when the coach they brought in was one of those "proven winners" we read so much about on here. Unfortunately for Logan and the other teams who hired "proven winners" they hardly ever prove they can win. So next year will be a new year and I trust a new system will be put in place. But I bet Logan can't get in the TVC fast enough for their fans so they can battle Athens and NY for the title year in and year out.

Awesome breakdown, appreciate it!
With the run game being their strength, that could be to their advantage as the Tigers have shown that they can struggle at stopping the run. Although they seemed to do a much better job two weeks ago against West. The Tigers can strike quick and often on the offensive side of the ball, so seeing that Logan may struggle in coverage at times could be a huge concern for them.
Overall I think this is still an interesting matchup. Just looking at the game on paper, I would say Waverly will run away with it. But will not be one bit shocked if this is a close game.
I know it is somewhat of a longer haul for the Logan faithful, but I hope some of you make the trip down and enjoy your time at the stadium.
