    Default Cal U @ Clarion

    This has the potential of being one of the biggest homecoming games in a long time in Clarion. The Golden Eagles are 4-1 ( I know the schedule ) but they are still playing hard, Cal could have a monster let down after last week and always struggle to put away the Golden Eagles on the road.

    Sneaky good game from I80 this weekend.

    Really???? The GOLDEN IGGLES lost to SHIP 13-35 at home, then got by LHU, LINCOLN, GU and SHU. In the DUNN ERA the VULCANS have lost to SHEP, IUP, SRU, ASSUMPTION, ODU and KUTZ . All playoff teams. Tell me which games GD failed to have his team prepared. If the skies open up and passing is impossible, I suspect NELSON BROWN et al could grind out 300+ yds on the ground and control the clock completely. The best chance CLARION has is a passing free for all but 24 ppg doesn't measure up that well versus 37 ppg. May not happen but I suspect something more like SHIP than BORO.

    Clarion will be all jacked up in front of the ALF crowd but that will only last so long. Clarion does tend to play well at home (recall that Ship game was a neutral site). IUP tried to sleepwalk through this game a year ago and nearly lost.


    That said, this will be in the range of 48-14 in favor of California.

    2017 Cal struggled at Millersville , was outgained by 140 yards at home vs Seton Hill and outgained by Clarion by 50 yards and won those two games by 3 and 2 points.

    If (gigantic if) Clarion is for real ... it's time to show it.

    Next four:

    Cal
    @IUP
    SRU
    Edinboro

    Three of the four at home ...

    Brutal month.

    And yet more than 12 years since the IGGLES brought home a W....so the game will tell the story.

    I'm not going to say Clarion is going to win...I'm not going to say that it will even be close, but I guarantee you that Cal doesn't see anything close to 300 yards on the ground. Half that might be a stretch

    Irrelevant. They'll throw for 400.

    Clarion can win this game one of two ways:
    1. Cal doesn't show up
    or
    2. Defense steps up another notch and plays lights out, forces 3-4 turnovers, gets the offense a couple short fields, and they score a TD on defense or special teams. they come out with an aggressive offensive game plan, mix up the play calling and stop being conservative and predictable, and they make a few plays on shots on the outside, McGriff is available this weekend and goes for 125+ on the ground

    Broken record ... we read the same Clarion hype every year they start good against nobody teams. Then reality sets in. Year after year.

    Yeah Mitchell was making throws against you guys I didn’t think he was capable of. You guys were in good coverage most of the time just D2 Quarterbacks don’t drop 20 yard dimes from the opposite hash very often. I think they throw for 400 as well

    He throws a lot of 50/50 balls. He puts up great yardage numbers, but he'll always have high interception numbers throughout his career. He's got a good arm, but I wouldn't say all of those throws were all him. He had a lot of help from his receivers. There were a lot of plays where guys just managed to come down with it when the coverage couldn't have been better. On a given week, four of those passes can get picked. Not saying he's not good, I'm just saying he should be more careful where he throws the football.
