In-game thoughts: St. X vs. DeMatha

Good Sunday morning, everyone.

This Kirk Herbstreit Challenge thing is pretty cool, eh? Good thing national sponsor Burger King and some other folks stepped up to the plate, because it was only a few months ago that the event looked to be dead in the water.

Anyway, I will be blogging some thoughts as today's No. 1 St. Xavier versus No. 3 DeMatha game (Noon EDT on ESPN) progresses.

First off, Tom Groeschen of the Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting in his blog this morning that St. Xavier star RB Darius Ashley is definitely out for today's game. He is dressed in his jersey, shorts and street shoes on the sidelines as the Bombers go through pre-game warmups.

So, bad news for the Bombers and their fans. We'll see how well fullback Luca Romero and Patrick Berning can pick up the slack.
