The Delaware Hayes win against Big Walnut "didn't impress" New Albany football coach Mark Mueller. Mueller claims the "wet field" was the reason for the Pacer victory. So - the Eagles don't see the Pacers as any kind of a threat.

I wasn't at the game - but didn't the two teams face each other on the same field under the same weather conditions?

No threat Coach Mueller says!

Well Pacers - head east to Les Wexner land and earn yourself some respect from Muller and his rich kid twerps!

Show the Eagles that Delaware football is here to stay and they had better get used to fast paced, hard hitting, slobber knocker losses from the Orange and Black of Delaware!

Thanks 'Coach Mueller' for giving our team a little extra "incentive" for our meeting this Friday.
First point: I was at the 2009 Hayes vs.Big Walnut game--seems like there were two teams that had to play under extremely challenging conditions. I recall both teams played on both sides of the field---and both had the same opportunity to win. The Pacers played a better game and worked hard for their victory. No excuses for bad weather.
Second--Was the inclement weather in 2008 also the reason for the Pacers victory over New Albany? Maybe a full moon? Maybe a wind from the west?
Pretty disappointing to hear a coach from a worthy opponent slam a victory, especially when he wasn't even there to see the game. Where's your sportsmanship?
Win or lose, this Friday I know without a doubt that our Pacer boys will be out there playing their best, regardless of the class (or lack of) team they will face.

Easy now boys. Coach Mueller said nothing of the kind. Just another lame attempt to provide locker room theatrics. Isn't there a better way to get the team ready to play?

did you read the article? Coach Mueller said exactly something "of the kind" - and followed it up with a lame "no disrespect intended" cya comment

Maybe the kids from the land of white fences NEED lame locker room theatrics to play well because they haven't worked as hard or have the perserverance or half the spirit and desire to play in the post season as the men from Delaware have exhibited?

New Albany also has played in the playoffs. You know one trip every twenty years doesn't make you an annual contender! I hope they all can go in consecutive years. It would be nice for the kids.

Where has anyone even mentioned playoffs in the comments above? Yes, obviously playoffs are the goal of anyone in the division...BUT, I believe the subject at hand has to do with the uncalled for, not to mention, totally unsportsmanlike, comments made by the New Albany coach. There certainly didn't appear to be any vague allusions made by the coach,but instead, a blunt, personal opinion that the Hayes Pacers won the game simply because the weather was poor and the field was wet...nice. It's looking like rain this weekend...could Hayes possibly be "lucky" enough to defeat New Albany (again?). One can only hope so.

I don't see it. Just a coach saying what they think is accurate.

Interesting. We are watching from the outside and reading in. Looks like Delaware is in transition into a powerhouse. The history of Delaware is over and a new decade has just started. The comments from the New Albany Coach, well, it reflects on his positive coaching skills.

Maybe we should come watch this game. Let's see if New Albany can walk the BIG TALK. New Albany is pretty close by for us, actually neighbors. Let's see what the small growing school of Delaware can do with New Albany's talk.

Thanks Coach Loparo, for setting the bar high for the Pacers, and especially for setting a worthy example for the young men from Delaware to follow. Win or lose, no excuses. We're proud of you all.
And just maybe
