What's going on with these 2 teams they seam to have fallen off the map in the NWC?

They have both hemorrhaged talent through graduation over the past couple of years.

Ada has a few solid linemen, but that's about it. Not much in the way of skilled kids. They also lost their coach, which is always a difficult transition, even if the new coach is from within the program.

Jefferson is as bad as I've ever seen them. They lost a tremendous amount of talent. They are small and slow, which is a bad combination. Taviano isn't a particularly skilled coach, imo. They looked disorganized, unprepared and barely under control when they played at Allen East. Most of their behavior seemed to model their coach's behavior, which was barely under control.

If junior high is any indicator for future success (it rarely is, though talent is talent), then there could be a few tough years before it gets better. The Ada JH has a really good QB, who I can't imagine won't start as a freshman next year. Not a lot around him, but in that system the QB is everything. Jefferson had some decent talent this year. Pretty stout up front, but not overly athletic.

As is always the case, this tends to be cyclical. It's difficult to stay at the top forever, especially with the coaching turnover both of these programs have faced.

Did anyone witness the fight on the Delphos Jefferson sideline Friday night? I was told the Jefferson head coach and an assistant had to be separated. Then at the same time 2 players (one being the head coaches son) were on the track exchanging punches. The player fight was broke up by parents and the CG police. If that is true, Jefferson has bigger issues then being a horrible football team

I bet Taviano regrets leaving all that talent Perry has right now for that mess.
