“Never argue, never explain.” That was one of the first pieces of newspapering advice I got 25 years ago, from an old colleague when I wondered why he spent 10 minutes on the phone, silently listening to a long, loud complaint from a reader. I don’t agree with that totally, although I do try and […]

Monheim: A true role model

Monheim: A true role model

Last Saturday’s Norwayne win over Orrville was the end of the Red Riders’ season, and the end of the high school careers of the OHS seniors. Included in that group was Mason Monheim, Orrville’s fantastic inside linebacker/running back who finished as the school’s all-time leader in games played (among non-kickers) and the all-time leading tackler. […]

The rise of the underdo

Norwayne over Orrville!!

| November 13, 2011 | 1 Comment

Wow! Floored may have been the better word for myself and the vast majority of Wayne County people who know anything about either team. Norwayne was by far the underdog coming into this matchup and Orrville definitely carried majority of the cards when both teams met up on Saturday. The thing I can say are […]

I can remember vividly sitting in front of the TV and watching first the Art Schlichter interception, then the punch thrown by Woody Hayes that ended his coaching career at Ohio State in the 1978 Gator Bowl. It was stunning, but hardly a surprise. Still, even Schlichter wouldn’t have bet that Joe Paterno’s six-plus decades […]

In the postgame rush of interviews, then getting back to the office to start the 1 1/2 hr. whirlwind that includes up to seven of us working on stories, then putting it all together in the Saturday Sports Extra, it’s not until everything’s done for another week that I have a chance to really think […]

Sorting out the H.S. football playoff picture

It’s crunch time for area high school football teams with Week 8 games to be played Friday night. I spoke recently with College of Wooster professor Drew Pasteur, whose website www.fantastic50.net, does a great job of sorting out the playoff probabilities. Here are Pasteur’s takes on the playoff outlooks for five of the area teams […]

Seems like the Browns’ time off between games has been way too long — guess when you get drilled in your last outing, as Cleveland did in a loss to Tennessee, that will happen. Heading to Oakland, Browns coach Pat Shurmur said he’s using the bye week to reassess everything, a smart move considering the […]

Changes, we definitely need changes at Ohio State. I can’t stand watching the tube on Saturday’s and seeing the slop we are putting on the field and slop off the field. At some point someone needs to say enough. No. 1 – Good-bye DeVier Posey, Dan “Boom” Herron, Melvin Fellows and the rest of the […]

To use No. 40 or not to use the beast, AKA Peyton Hillis. It’s a weird question and I can’t honestly believe that Pat Shurmur has to even sit down, watch film and agonize over it. I understand that the Browns want to sling the ball all over the field and maybe someday when they […]
