WT still had a starter out due to rearranging some kids face on Crestview 2 weeks back.
I'll take Ft Jennings to beat Ottoville Friday.

So? That doesn’t mean they would have won. I always thought Ottoville was a better team than Wayne Trace and they surely are a better team than Fort Jennings.

The OV/FJ game will be a great game. Too bad one will be out.

If that happens I wouldn't want to be the coach at FJ. A certain family over there thinks their relation on the team is actually good. Reality is something they lack. Guess who that are going to blame for the loss? That's right, the coach.

If Ottoville loses I think I wouldn't want to be the coach their either. Looks like their could be some fireworks on that side of the county Friday night.

I don't think the FJ coach has much to worry about. You could aruge FJ fans don't have the same unreasonable expectations that Ottoville fans do. If FJ happens to lose, the community will be disappointed, but will also understand they were playing a quality team. If Ottoville loses, a large contingent of their fans will question how they lost to FJ again.

Just take a look at the previous coaches at each school. Both Tom VS and Todd Turnwald were forced out at Ottoville. At FJ, the past 2 coaches chose their paths....one to retire and one to coach where he teaches.

Mysterio - when you say that Ottoville is 'surely' better than FJ and someone points out that the two teams split in the regular season, I'd say it DOES mean something.

O'town also forced out McMillen after he took their team to regional....not real sure about Tom VonSossan...I think he had kids he wanted to watch......anyway....still noted as the graveyard of coaches.....it is only a matter of time for Utendorf!!!!!

It doesn’t. If you knew the series history of these 2 teams you would know then that these teams split almost every year no matter who’s better. When FJ won state, they split. That doesn’t mean Ottoville was as good as FJ that year. Just for one game they had their number. Ya sure if it means anything, it was that Ottoville had the worst shooting performance of their entire season and FJ had their best when FJ won the second game.

Not renewing a few boys basketball contracts makes them the graveyard of coaches? I’m sure a lot of other sports programs would like you to hold their beer on that one.

But how many of them were asked not to come back? Soccer golf cross country softball all have had the same coaches for a while now. Baseball and volleyball just got a new coach few years ago I think because the other one just didn’t wanna do it anymore. Girls basketball has had the same obviously. I mean outside of TT not getting asked to come back recently who else has there been? Like I said Ottoville is not the only school that goes through coaches.
