Long time follower of EIAC…first time writing. STC is back! I was afraid we wouldn’t be blessed with your presence! Finally game day, let’s hope COVID doesn’t hurt any of our teams like much of last season!
Batesville vs Indian Creek: I don’t know much about the Braves but hear the Bulldogs return a lot of guys this season. They may have the next best QB in the conference behind Yoon IMO. This game didn’t go their way last year but I think Coach U and the Dawgs win in a close one.(Dawgs 21-17)
Greensburg vs Shelbyville: The golden bears are on a 25 game losing streak. I don’t see that changing tonight. Greensburg wins this one easy. (Pirates 31-7)
Rushville vs Milan: Sounds like the Lions have higher expectations than in the past for this season. They return their QB but don’t know much about the talent surrounding him. Milan is always a tough physical team. Rushville won’t have the firepower to compete. (Indians 28-14)
Connersville vs Richmond: This should be a interesting game! I heard Richmond was having issues with players not showing up to summer activities because of an incident with their HC (fight)? Connersville was a young team last year and brings back experience. Tough to predict these early matchups but I’ll give this one to the C-Ville. (Spartans 28-21)
FC vs New Castle: I heard this game had a possibility of being cancelled due to COVID at New Castle. But the game is still on far as I know. The cats bring back a lot of dudes this year. They lost their QB and RB but are able to replace them. #23 for FC might be the best athlete in the conference. This game isn’t even close. (Wildcats 48-14)
South Dearborn vs Seymour: Coach Boom and the knights will be ready to roll tonight! I hear they lost a All-state player to the boys down the road but no fear they will show up and let those Owls know what KFI is all about! (Knights 31-20)
EC vs Lawrenceburg: The game of the year in the EIAC right out of the gate! This will be a great one for sure. Like STC said the tigers on paper look like they have a team to make it back to Lucas Oil this year. They have dudes all over the field. EC on the other hand lost a few guys including their two bookend LB’s. They will be hard to replace but EC always seems to find a way to produce. I expect a low scoring game… but Coach K and the boys get the monkey of their back! (Tigers 17-14)
