  1. Dan says:

    Does Gen McClane every have to travel out of Edinboro or Erie for a playoff game???

  2. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Dan,
    Where should that game be played? GM is a much higher seed than Oil City, who barely got in.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  3. Dan says:

    Your logic concerning Gen McClane is not the same logic you used in explaining why Warren’s basketball playoff game last year against Girard was play at Bahernd. Warren was the higher seed and the game should not have been played in Erie. I agree Gen McClane is the higher seed against Oil City and this game should be played in the Erie area but I think Edinboro takes that a little to far. It would be like Warren who is the higher seed against Conneaut playing thier game in Warren.

  4. Tom Reisenweber says:

    My logic is the same every time, I ask where you play the game? And fans still don’t have an answer.

    I understand GM plays a lot of games at Edinboro but they are in a unique geographical location where there aren’t many sites between GM and the southern teams.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  5. Todd says:

    Tom, were you surprised by the Seneca’s WM game?

  6. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Todd,
    I was very surprised. I did hear several WM starters didn’t play but I don’t want to take anything away from Seneca. Big win for the program.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  7. Tee says:

    Warren always has to travel far. Corry is an excellent location since it’s not far from Warren or the Erie Schools. Nice facility, too. Glad that Warren gets to host the Eisenhower game.

  8. Jeff says:

    Really unfortunate that Warren is between nothing, because they have a great facility to host playoff games. Tons of games would be held there if it was in Erie county. One of the nicest HS fields around if you consider all factors. Glad its finally able to get used.

  9. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Tee,
    The main reason Warren always has to travel is there are so far away from other playoff teams. Unless Warren wins their region, they will be on the move. I am glad they received a close game at Corry but the winner does have to go to Veterans Stadium.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  10. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Jeff,
    That’s the tough thing, location. It would be perfect if an Erie team ever played like Kane or Sheffield though. That would be rare.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  11. steve says:

    How about GM playing in Meadville, at Meadville HS or Allegany college. Close to GM but not in their backyard.

  12. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Steve,
    Meadville may not have the parking/seating for a playoff game. Allegheny may not be available. I don’t make these decisions but there are a lot of factors to consider.

    Thanks,
    Tom

  13. steve says:

    I know it’s not your decision Tom, but you said “where should that game be played?” as if there were no other options available. I’m not sure about the parking, etc. in Meadville although I’d be surprised if they couldn’t handle a GM/Oil City crowd. I assume they get a lot of their own fans for their home games.

  14. Tom Reisenweber says:

    Steve,
    The parking can be tough there, plus the seating is limited. I know D-10 has discussed all possible sites at meetings and I am sure they have reasons why Meadville never hosts football. Meadville is a perfect geographical location because it is in the middle of the district. D-10 has volleyball and basketball there but there has to be a reason not to have football there.

    Thanks,
    Tom
