Williamson: “The Monarchs will roll this week and get back on track against the Greyhounds. I don’t know if anyone has been to a game at Grove City, but that community turns out for games, even when the team is garbage. Two years ago I was really impressed to see people standing 10-deep around the fence for a team that had lost 15 straight games. They also have central Ohio’s best high school band, which is saying something having watched Marysville all these years. Jon Alder’s offense will suffer blisters from running up and down the field so much. There are some good college games this week and I really wish Michigan had a couple more easy games to figure this offense out before playing a tough opponent. I’m taking the Wolverines, but I’m not at all confident in the pick.
Miller: “I look for the Monarchs to bounce back from last Friday’s tough trip to Findlay.”
Behrens: “My UCF pick worked out last week to get me back within in a game of falling knife Cordell and Jim Dandy Dillon. Let’s see how the Badgers do this week over the Wolverines.”
Cordell: “I covered Marysville last week and had a super-long car ride to think about what went wrong. Marysville was a couple bad bounces away from a win in tough road conditions. G.C. is not the team Findlay is and I think the Monarchs steamroll the Hounds and find their footing again. Greenon has a QB named Cade Rice. I fear the boys from Milford Center are going to get an eyeful of why he is a legitimate D-1 recruit.”
Dillon: “I had an awful week last week and need to find some confidence. This week is not the week for that. Tough college schedule to pick and I am torn by my North Union pick. London is coming into a season with two years of playoff experience, but has also lost some depth. NU has to find themselves after a tough loss last week. Tough all-around.”
Van Hoose: “Go Bucks!”
Weeks: “Go Bucks!”
Laslow: “Go Bucks!”
Cook: “Looks like Ryan Day has Ohio State right where we want them. Hopefully Coach Johnson can get the boys back on track. GO MONARCHS!”
Eubanks: “Go Bucks!”
O’Connors: Go Bucks!”
