    When does going to the playoffs become tradition ??? 5 years ? 10 ? serious question
    In and of itself, nothing really matters. What matters is that nothing is ever in and of itself.

    I don't think going to the playoffs ever becomes tradition. Tradition is supposed to be something unique, and it is supposed to be something entirely volitional (meaning you have 100% say in it). Given that 192 teams make the playoffs annually in Ohio, it just doesn't seem like an actual tradition.

    Now, I suppose I could see certain teams playing in the playoffs as part of the historical tradition, but I think that would be a different kind of tradition. There's the kind that you can do ... and you indeed do ... because you have always done it that way, and it's a unique part of your program. Then, there are other parts that are forever etched into your team's proud history.

    I think just consistently contending to win the conference every single year....your "down" years become 6-4 records instead of 2-8, making the playoffs just isn't good enough. When you are the biggest game for everyone on your schedule. I think all these attribute to tradition, not just playoff appearances.

    I would agree with this. A reputation earned would be something I could see as a tradition. Even on less than stellar years, if teams know that you're going to be a physical team, and teams know they're going to take a beating, regardless of whether or not they win. Same with a well-conditioned team.

    In support of miyagi....there certainly must be an answer here....and its one that should be given, so we know when the WCAL can claim Tradition...

    Friends are those that try to calm you when you are angry. Best friends are those that skip along beside you with a baseball bat singing "Someones going to get it".

    Can't believe we're posting on a five-year-old thread. In any case, Norwayne probably isn't as dominant this year as they were in 2011. Curious what the game will look like this weekend.

    This game will be a one sided butt whipping. Norwayne will win by 40 plus if they pull the dogs off in the 3rd qt. It will be ugly!

    Not sure what this means.

    Was anyone at the game? Was this a case where Orrville is solid, and Wooster is just THAT much better? Are the Bobcats down? Im betting this win felt sweet for Orrville after the last meeting.

    Complete domination by the Riders. I arrived late but saw enough. rrfan was right about the butt whooping he just had the teams mixed up. I think
    Wooster is that good.

    To bad the Riders season ended after the win against Norwayne. These kids could not stay away from own press clippings. Now they are a complete and utter disaster.
