  1. Division I Lakewood St. Edward (13-1) vs. Gahanna-Lincoln (13-1): Most are not giving GL much of a chance in this game. But while Ed's is clearly the favorite, the Golden Lions defense gives them a punchers chance. From a talent perspective they are more equipped that UA was last year, and UA gave Ed's one of their closest games. That may have been the case because of the deliberate and disciplined approach UA brought to the table with the clock-eating run game, but still, it's a lesson that you can't take any team for granted at this point in the year. Only good teams make it this far, and GL has been the class of Columbus. They have two D1 bookends on defense with Kamari Burns and Elijah King, and the All-Central District D1 offensive player of the year in RB Diore Hubbard. They will need monster games from those three in particular to combat the dominating offensive line and run-stopping defense that Ed's brings to the table. The maturation of Casey Bullock in the pass game has also added an additional element to the Eagle offense. He has been incredibly accurate and efficient in this playoff run, allowing homerun-hitting receiver Kyan Mason to effectively stretch the field and exploit opposing secondaries. The biggest question mark for Ed's right now is the kicking game. Punter Ben Lavelle was forced to assume kicking duties this year after the former kicker left to play travel soccer, and his accuracy has been all over the place. He's missed something like 4/5 FG attempts in recent weeks, and also an XP. It hasn't cost them yet, but it could in a close game. Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller (13-1) vs. Springfield (12-1): This final-four rematch has been a year in the making which saw Springfield eek out a 22-21 win back in 2021. While Springfield graduated their dual-threat dynamo Te'Sean Smoot, they picked up one of the state's best pocket-passers via transfer in Bryce Schondelmyer. He has been slinging it around all year to the state's best WR combo in Anthony Brown and Daylen Bradley to the tune of over 4,000 yards. Defensively, Springfield has two difference-makers in LB Javion Norman and DB Aaron Scott. Scott is one of the top corner prospects in the class of 2024 and will be tasked with covering Moeller's speedy Tennel Bryant. Norman and front seven of Springfield will have to find a way to slow Jordan Marshall. Marshall did not play the second half of the LW game last week, and it was rumored he had a concussion. The backup Weeder still went for over 100 against LW's vaunted defense. No matter who suits up, Moeller's offensive line will still be opening up holes. If that is the case and they can grind out yards on the ground while keeping the explosive Springfield offense off the field (much how Ed's did in last years championship game), Moeller will win this game. Division II Akron Archbishop Hoban (13-1) vs. Massillon Washington (12-1): This game should be every bit as good as the Moeller-Springfield one. These two D2 powers were on a collision course last year until Massillon inexplicably lost in the region final to Green. Some are seeing this as the de-facto championship game. Hoban and RB Lamar Sperling have been unstoppable so far in these playoffs, running over, around and through every opponent. Massillon will have to find a way to contain Sperling to give themselves a shot. If the Tigers can work the passing game like they did against Ed's to compliment the running of Hartson, then things can really open up. Ardell Banks is a nightmare matchup for any defense with his size and speed at the WR position. College coaches have taken notice of him this season and the one-time Toledo commit is now back on the market and looking at Kentucky, Pitt, Cincy and others. Toledo Central Catholic (13-1) vs. Kings Mills Kings (13-1): I was very much looking forward to a TCC-Winton Woods matchup, but Kings had something to say about it. Kind of like the Ed's/GL game, most seem to think this should be a walk in the park for a very talented TCC team. Personally, I'm not going to sleep on any team that beat a loaded WW squad. That being said, I'm also not going to predict an upset here. The Fighting Irish impressed me last week as they were able to limit a very explosive Avon team. They did allow a comeback after leading 28-7 after the 3rd, and need to remain focused against Kings for 4 quarters. If they do, they win.

  2. Well wishes to you all of you degenerates. I hope your day is filled with food, football, family, friends and for @FreeBird extra McD's sweet and sour packets. I guess we are supposed to say what we are thankful for. In that case, I'm thankful for not being a Servite football fan. Amen.

  13. You say shit like, "will it (his God-fearingness) become an issue with a large amount of (Boulder) very liberal and not so welcoming to faith based individuals." Where do you get that the people of Boulder are not welcoming to faith based individuals? You make a lot of shit up. Boulder is a wealthy, expensive, lily-white city. It has historically been very liberal, but as higher and higher salaries have come to the average Boulderite, and property values have skyrocketed, the populace has actually become a bit more conservative. In neither scenario have they been unwelcoming to people wanting to follow any certain religion -- they are probably more accepting to freedom of religion than most places in the US. I mentioned that I'm not sure Boulder will be a long-term fit for him, but his choice of religion and how he practices it will have no bearing on why I'm not sure it's a fit, or whether or not he stays. To have suggested (guessed, because it might sound good) the people in the city of Boulder (and you included Denver) are in any way unwelcoming to Christians is friggin' stupid. And this is another of your stupid takes.

  23. Well....I ran your suspicions by my guys at the BNB in North Morven...and Carmine said..."Rufus, the guy is just THAT good". Well...suffice it to say...that wasn't what I wanted to hear...but I wasn't gonna argue with Carmine neither. I go 6 picks right. But the 4.....I got wrong were big numbers. I'm not accusing anybody of "rigging" anything cause if I did..I'd end up having to change my Login. And my home address. And at least one of my social security numbers. That's WAY too much trouble. Now between me and you...and nobody else....I'll say this in code.....KeEPYoUreYEonhaWGgOneiT. I ain't sure about THAT guy none a tall. When is this damn thing over? I need to know when to make my move. Rufus>>

  37. I was in a pinch last Saturday. I was out of margarita mix. I scooted to Harris Teeter and picked up a 60 oz bottle that I normally pay around $7.99 for. They wanted $11.99. I pulled out my shirt and wiped my fingerprints off the bottle and put it back. Said a few Baptist words and left. My point is....you make a choice. My choice was...there weren't NO FUCKING WAY I was gonna pay $11.99 for a 60 oz bottle of mixer. Shots anyone? Rufus>>
