I figured it would be best to just go ahead and make a centralized location for this discussion, since it has been popping up in several other topics for weeks. I have seen both with the eyeball test, and I can't say that I can call it. I would give Milford the slight edge, but if Milford has an off night or isnt motivated, Strawn will take advantage quickly.

Thoughts?

History...

Strawn and Milford have only met 5 times in the past, with each meeting coming in the playoffs.

The first meeting came in the Semifinal in 1979, with Strawn coached by Nelson Campbell at the time. "Edward Golden" remember that one. Milford won 66-49.

After that Strawn took a couple of bi-district losses in 94 and 95, during the time of the Cook brothers as I remember, en-route to Milford playing Amherst and Dewayne Myles a couple times.

They didnt meet again until 2004, again in bi-district, which I believe was the first time Dewaine Lee and Ronny Crumpton went head to head, and Strawn won 30-28 in bi-district.

The last time they met was in 2010 in the quarterfinals, where Milford won 44-30.

Seems like there were Cook boys from the time I was a freshman till 2 years after I got out of high school or there beyond. I can say that one of my concussions came from one of them for sure in a scrimmage in 91.

If this game happens. It'll be what Richland vs. Milford should have been. I dont think anyone will be 45'd unless 1 team simply doesn't show up.

Lol Tippie or not, did the game live up to the hype surrounding it? Imo no it didn't. It shouldve been a game instead of an a$$ whooping.

I agree we didn't live up to the expectations this year. We were missing a big part of our team but im happy we didn't give up till the end. Man this is a hard one. I believe strawn will win only because i've seen milford in the past. They aren't consistent with their success.

I couldn't because the burgers with jalepenos make you want to stay because they are so good.
