There were 278 runners that toed the starting line Saturday and it was full of the best runners in the district and also Lancaster High School, which yielded the third best team in Division I last year.

After yet another disastrous performance this weekend, the Bengals fell to a record of 1-3 with a 27-3 loss to a poor Titans team that we have never lost to under Joe Burrow was the final alarm for me that Cincinnati needs to just let Joe get healthy. The panic button has been pushed in the McAdow household and I am afraid that it’s only going to get worse.
