Thursday, October 02, 2008 Tony Nicolette's Weekly Column

(Special note to Chargers home TV color commentator and road radio color commentator Dan Bisher for mentioning last week as well as Tony's column. Hopefully Tony's prediction for this week will be as accurate as last week's was.)

Findlay (1-3, 2-3) at Hillsdale (2-2, 3-2)

The Chargers look to rebound after a tough loss in a game that they probably sould have won. Findlay has been on a rather ugly slide over the last three weeks, and a trip to an ornery Hillsdale bunch is not likely to be the "cure for what ails 'em".

Findlay Keys:
- Sling it - Anthony Lanzara has proven that he can throw the ball relatively well. The Oilers need to stretch the defense and make big plays whenever possible.
- Cash in - UF is +7 this year in turnover margin. They need to not only force the Chargers into mistakes, they need to turn them into points.

Hillsdale Keys:
- Come out ticked - They lost a game they had done enough to win last week. Don't let it happen again.
- Get after Lanzara - HC is second in the league in sacks. Getting pressure in the UF backfield can force a few turnovers in the Chargers' favor.

Prediction: Findlay really seems to be struggling of late, and I have a hard time seeing how they can reverse that against a solid Hillsdale club that now has a pair of losses and needs to play with some urgency. Hillsdale 38, Findlay 8.
