The option may fly up there but down south its power running. The option would get stuffed against LV ECA SLC and Albiene.
If you can't effectively throw the ball ECA will dominate you.

I've said from the start that SL Carroll is the best team in Texas (and the nation)... Their national #1 ranking cannot and should not be disputed by anyone!

SLC is very good and in my opinions is the #2 team in the nation. Texas 5A and Ohio D1 are even in terms of quality teams.

If Dodge calls the game like he had up to that point(and the rest of the season for that matter), the score is 42-23 and we are not having this discussion. Then again if "ifs and buts were candy and nuts...".

The thing about Colerain's triple option is that everyone asumes that their fullback that has comitted to Michigan is getting the ball so they try and stop him first, but the quarterback is the most dangerous person and he just simply fakes it to him and gets around the end for 18 or more yards at a time and he is very hard to bring down. Then add to the fact that they probably have Lineman that will play D1 football coming off the ball extremely fast and hard. Then they have two very fast pitch man who can take it to the house anytime. And like others have said their defense is ridiculous. Moeller who has an offense very simular to the one SLC runs was held to six points and they had to drasticly change their blocking schemes to hold the three man rush. SLC quarter back is a pretty good highschool quarter back but he isn't anything special.
ok folks, this thread is a little interesting minus the silly use of a computer ranking that has very little credibility for strength of schedule purposes. So with that being said, I am taking my nuetral stand and ripping it to shreads...

Exactly, Ohio is football's birthplace. It doesnt get any better. Plus Ohio has all the elements, rain, wind, snow, ice, cold, hot, even fire lol.
I think people need to take the following into account:
1) Colerain isn't simply the apparent champion-to-be in Ohio D1. They are dominating Ohio D1 in a manner rarely seen. Since week one, when they were breaking in a new QB to their option offense and were missing Michigan-bound RB Mister Simpson, nobody has come within four TDs of them. And on that 28-point win occasion it was only due to a late score against Colerain's scrubs.
Season average score: 50.4 - 7.6 (roughly 6 of these are due to scores in garbage time)
Tournament avg: 35 - 3
Since week one, their lowest scoring total is 34 points.
If you think their option offense would get stuffed in Texas, think again. Also, it's not that they CAN'T pass. They simply don't need to. Their QB has a 66% completion percentage for 18.7 yards per reception.
2) Nobody has scored more than 6 points against them the first half. This happened once. In fact, I think teams have only scored on them three times in the first half of play. This is a measure of how tough their 1st string D is.
3) If power running is the game in Texas, then be thankful that Colerain doesn't play there. Colerain has held teams to negative yards rushing on more than one occasion. In fact, their rushing D is so tough, Moeller went almost exclusively to the pass in their playoff game against Colerain (which they lost 34-6). They rushed just 8 times for 0 yards after averaging over 150 Y/G rushing during the season. Elder averaged 6 Y/G rushing against Colerain in two games (including one game of -21 yards). Against their other opponents, they averaged 167 Y/G rushing.
Lesson here? You can't run against Colerain.
