Re: Eastern Meigs Head Coach Search

I doubt it has much to do with him not getting respect. He was removed from the team last year 3/4 through the season. So its not like he was just non-renewed out of the blue. There had to have been a reason.

Re: WK3 Wahama (WV) @ Southern

Unless Wahama has improved, I'd expect Southern to win by 3 TD's.

Re: Week 2: Gallia Academy (1-0) @ River Valley (0-1)

Gallia Academy will win by as many as they choose. Being the last game of the series for the foreseeable future, might see a big score put up by Gallia Academy.

Re: WK 2: Nelsonville-York (0-1) @ Fort Frye (1-0)

NY will get to 1-1 after this one. I wouldn't be surprised to see them act like a whole different team. I believe Rusty is a good coach, and maybe week 1 will serve as a wake up to the kids on the team.

Re: Week 2; Southern (1-0) at Federal Hocking (1-0)

Southern should win this game. However, if Fed has some excitement flowing from their first victory in a while, they could put up a good fight. I hope its a dog fight. I don't think Southern is as good as they have been the last couple years. So it could make it a ball game. I took notice to Southe...

Re: WK1 2019 Federal Hocking @ Hundred (WV)

I hope so too. Looked pretty rough on the Gridiron Glory video Do they lose a lot of transfers or nobody play? As a former coach at FH I can say the challenges are trying to get kids involved and the hurdles that come with either; transportation, interest or location in comparison to the school. Th...

Re: 5/22 Clay v Southern

If his arm was sore or he was in discomfort, kudos to Southern's coach for making the change. I've been around a lot of baseball and some coaches would ask you to stick it out and get another inning or two. I might find myself rooting for Southern a little more now.

Re: TVC championship game?

I think I read somewhere that Southern defeated Athens. That represents the Hocking well! I believe Eastern is a better ball club than Southern, so it stands to reason that Eastern might have had some success against Athens as well. One thing I know about baseball is that it is a crazy game, and eve...

Re: Is the Pitch Count Rule Hurting the Game?

I'm not arguing that it doesn't happen or it doesn't work. But it is certainly not for everybody. In my experience, a lot of the fun was in figuring out how to get people out. If a coach had been telling me what to throw, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed pitching as much and might not have played a...

Re: Is the Pitch Count Rule Hurting the Game?

I was not an ace, but I generally knew what I got people out with earlier in the game. This isn't something that's beyond the capabilities of a high school pitcher. Teach them how to pitch and let them use their instincts. I would love to believe this was true. Kids instincts tell them to throw jun...

Re: Is the Pitch Count Rule Hurting the Game?

I think most coaches call pitches simply because they keep track of what pitches have been thrown to each batter. You don't want a catcher guessing about what was thrown last time. If the pitcher doesn't throw a single curveball 1st time thru the order but is effective, then next time thru you're s...

Re: Is the Pitch Count Rule Hurting the Game?

As stated above I think most programs were using some form of pitch control prior to the implementation of the rule by OHSAA, whether it was a true count or innings worked or just monitoring the starts and days between rest. Obviously there was a need for a point of emphasis in OHSAA's mind in orde...

Re: Eastern vs Waterford controversy

That is part of the game. In my opinion, if Eastern's coach did in fact have that meeting with the umpire to try and get the darkness call, then he is doing his job well. Aren't coaches supposed to put their team in the best position to win? If that is the case, then getting them the extra time, ma...

Re: 2019 OVC

Gallia Academy has impressed me thus far. Faro is by far the best pitcher in the league, but the guy who will be filling his shoes in the upcoming years has had a great start to this season. Zane Loveday gives Gallia another lefty to really have a chance at running the table in the league.

Re: Schedule & results: 4/1

Meigs wins 4-0 against River Valley in 9 innings. Briar Wolfe was the winning pitcher. Kemper was terrific for the Raiders, not giving up a hit on the mound. Very solid effort for the young Raider team. Young Raider team? Their are 7 seniors on the roster. Meigs has 1. How many of the 7 play?

Yes. Zane Loveday, formerly known as "Zack's little brother." Think he could make his own name on the diamond.
Kudos to him
