I don't see home field having much of an effect on this game. As for who wins, too many uncertainties for me to pick a side, other than I lean Sullivan if close and Linton If it's lopsided.
This group from Linton is talented enough to overwhelm teams that aren't as athletic or as physical. Their weakness has been showing they can win close games. Bone-headed mistakes, blown coverages/assignments, turnovers, and an inability to flush the previous play have been their demise against teams that match up physically.
On the flip side I wasn't impressed with Sullivan's run game at all vs NK. If their line play struggles again tonight it will be ugly. I really think this game is more about Linton than the Arrows. Do we overwhelm them with better talent? Do we beat ourselves? Or do we start figuring how to win vs like teams?
If this group of Miners figure out "winning" they'll have a great season and be a tough out for any 2A come tourney time. If not...going to be a long, frustrating season.
