I think if southern plays well on defense, and dont give up the big play, it could interesting . Big game for both teams, playoff points and winner could be league champ, should be a good game,

Based upon how they both faired against Crestview as a common opponent this year, it would appear Columbiana is a couple TD favorite at least.

I would agree, but it was a rivalry game, for the clippers, and they played, like it, they were amped up, and not that southern shouldnt have been amped, but they played flat, and defensively they just didnt get to the football, im hoping to see a better performance by the indians, and if they can hang around i think they have the offensive fire power to get the win.

Columbiana BIG. Southern is building a solid program, but just like 2010 against McDonald, or 2011 against Reserve they are no match for the best of the lower tier

I think Columbiana is the better team however, Southern throws the ball very well, and Columbiana's secondary is suspect. I do believe Columbiana will be too physical for the Indians.

That would be true, but I think Southern and Columbiana match up differently then they both did against Crestview. Southern passing game is improving and as hunter said, the Clippers secondary is a little suspect. It will really come down to how much pressure the Clippers D-line can get on Griffith. However, I think the Clippers offensive speed will give the Indians trouble on the defensive side. So it may come down to who scores last, and of course, who turns the ball over.

The spread option killed Southern against Crestview. They didn't have the speed or the discipline to stop it. Even against Crestview's second team. Spaite said himself on that interview on myvalleysports that they are less of an option team with their senior qb out. My guess is - if that qb plays and they open up the playbook, Columbiana may be able to name their score. If not, then Southern has a little better shot - but they haven't stopped the run very well except for when teams have tried to attack them right up the middle - which may not even be the case anymore without Haddox.

I still think Southern can score 20 or so. All things considered, the offense didn't look terrible against Crestview, and the passing game has been pretty good lately - I just fear that they won't be able to keep Columbiana under 40. Hope I'm wrong and it is a better game than that.

I don't see Wellsville winning another game this year other than this week.
So I'm not worrying about it lol. The Indians will probably pile it on but if the tigers were to compete in any of the games this year, I'd hope that they find the heart and courage to put it all on the line against Southern, but who knows with these guys down here. We'll see what team wants to show up next week.

As for Southern getting whooped, it seems to make my high school football watching season a little bit better but, so far its been pretty lousy..

Southern gets taste of a team that should still be in the Upper Tier. Clips by 50+.

They should still be in the Upper. Do you think Spaite wants to be in the Upper? Or do you think he likes being the big fish in the little pond?

Columbiana would still be one of the two big fish in the "big pond" if they were still in the Upper Tier. I'd imagine he would want to be in the Upper tier being that they play bigger schools which would count for more points towards the playoffs rather than play all these D6 teams and have to struggle to get into the playoffs with a possible 9-1 record like Southern. Basically a playoff game tonight.

Nice effort by both teams tonight. Southern looked like they were capable of winning this one, but you can't turn the ball over six times against the Clippers and expect to win.

Good luck to the young man that was carted off the field for the Indians tonight - hope he is going to be ok.

One odd thing to note. I've personally seen nearly every team in our area play - and I'm not quite sure I've ever been to a game where it kicked off nearly ten minutes early, and the star-spangled banner was played before the away team even came out of the locker room. Very strange... Maybe some sort of miscommunication.
