Titans have started out well. Lots of young talent. Heard the starting point guard has a wrist injury. Is there truth to this rumor?

Must be very sound defensively holding LB to 37 points after scoring 76 the night before. I believe they said there is only 1 senior on the roster.

OG is always a disciplined team. Who stands in their way come tourney time?

It seems like they are a small D2 if I'm not mistaken? Just barely over D3 by a few boys? They're so well coached. OG is such a special situation. Great feeder program with the 3 jr high schools, and those towns love basketball. Without question, probably the strongest and most consistent supportive fan base. Travel well and obviously a big advantage when on the home court

OG is a small D2. The tourney trail will most likely include WBL schools and I believe Upper Sandusky who also could pose a challenge. On any given night in the WBL-Shawnee-Wapak-Elida-Bath- and others could challenge OG.

With only 1 senior on the roster, it will be interesting to see how the regime handles the influx of young talent. In today's world of instant gratification, will these young student athletes have the patience to stay the course?? Any program would welcome a concern of that nature.

Watched the replay of the OG-LB game this morning on WOSN. One of the announcers stated that OG guards could tell the flavor of chewing gum the LB players had by the pressure applied defensively. And if they were able to penetrate-you had a 6'6 and 6'4 kid to contend with. Defense should keep them in the majority of games this season.

Starting PG has a broken bone in hand/wrist area from what I have heard. Out at least 2 weeks at this point. More likely timetable appears 4-6 weeks. It is his shooting hand too so that might impact him the rest of the season. Could be a blessing in disguise as they will have to develop another point guard these next few weeks.

Hearing that Titans are looking real good. Good juniors? How is the senior class? Is there just more and more and more coming from those three 8th grade programs?

Only 1 senior on the roster, Niese. He is a great leader and flat out defend. Has the ability to score 6-8 points on any night. Juniors Kaufman, Dible, and Schrader averaging 15-18 a game. They are also getting solid contributions from sophomores White, Fortman, and Heagle.

Losing 2 out of their last 3 should bring the OG faithful back to Planet Earth............not sure they have the "it" factor this year......basketball sure has regressed to the point where people have become accustomed to inferior play.......zoooooooom

Team does not have "it" right now but potential is there. Coach mac usually has the team peaking at the right time.

Talking to a couple former OG players last weekend & both agreed their record has been aided by a manageable early schedule & the real tests will start now. OG will always be a tough out come tourney time

Regression---------Regional final appearance in 2016 beating the likes of undefeated Upper Sandusky, defending state champs Defiance, and Lexington along the way.

Inferior play-----Losing 7 seniors, 2016 regional finalist in football with Dible, Niese, and Kaufman getting a late start and projected starter Knowlton breaking his leg, what fantasy world are you living in? Titan faithful are very happy to be where they are with 2 losses at the hands of an improving Findlay team which shot better than 60% from the floor and a Lima Senior team that is healthy, PLUS ONE,

Yeah.

No kidding! OG is sports wealthy and just keeps producing the goods. Most any school would trade places with them and the community support they get season after season. Good Lord!
