Every year at the Ohio Athletic Conference football media day, Mount Union is the usual pick.

That’s not surprising since they’ve won the league for the past 21 years.

They’ll keep being favored until somebody knocks them off.

On Saturday at Capital’s Bernlohr Stadium in Bexley, Ohio, the juggernaut continued some impressive records in winning 58-3.

The Purple Raiders have won 21 games in a row; 79 consecutive regular-season wins and their 113th regular season road win.

Mt. Union is now 6-0, 5-0 on the season.

Capital drops to a disappointing 1-5, 1-4.

Ranked number 1, the Purple Raiders forced six turnovers and held the Crusaders to 144 total yards and minus-5 passing.

Cartel Brooks rushed for a school-record 337 yards and five touchdowns Saturday in leading the visiting Heidelberg Student Princes to a 35-17 win over the Otterbein Cardinals.

His 337 yard total is the sixth-highest mark in the history of the Ohio Athletic Conference.

The game was the 21st in the series called the Rhine River Cup.

The Rhine River Cup, which commemorates the 1992 Heidelberg-Otterbein game held in Frankfurt, Germany, will stay in Tiffin, Ohio for the third straight season.

Brooks had a record-setting performance on a chilly autumn evening.

His 35th carry of the game, a 38-yard touchdown rush, broke Jeff Brock’s single-game rushing record of 301 yards set in 1999. His fifth touchdown breaks a record held by himself and five others.

Heidelberg is 6-0 overall, 5-0 in the OAC and looks like they’ll be competing with league kingpin Mount Union for the championship.

The one bright spot for the Cardinals was QB Ben Sizemore, who completed 30 of 51 passes for 354 yards and two scores.

Otterbein drops to 3-3, 3-2 on the season.


In a surprise move, Loth leaves Otterbein for Western Connecticut State

In a surprise move late last Thursday, May 17, head football coach Joe Loth surprised Columbus area media, the town of Westerville and Otterbein fans when rumors started circulating around town that he was leaving his alma mater, to sign a multi-year contract to rebuild the program at Western Connecticut State.

Loth’s leaving probably even shook the media relations department because until this day, there has not even been an article written declaring his resignation or leaving the university. That is strange in itself.

Western Connecticut State University is a public state university, established in 1903. It has an enrollment of 5,907 and located in Danbury, Connecticut. It is an NCAA Division III school with 14 varsity sports. Their nickname is the Colonials and play in two conferences, the ECAC, Eastern College Athletic Conference and the LEC, Little East Conference.

The rebuilding job at Western Connecticut State will take longer than at Otterbein. But Loth will recruit from talent in Connecticut, New York City and Long Island.

The football team plays in the New Jersey Athletic Conference, where it has had a tough time under former coach John Burrell, going 0-10, 0-10, 2-8 and 2-8. Its last winning season was in 2005.

The 45-year-old Loth could not pass up the chance at WCSU where he is very familiar with the town and university. He was the Colonials defensive coordinator from 1993-1997. His wife, Keri graduated from the school as well.

Loth is certainly good at rebuilding. During his tenure at Otterbein, he saw the football program receive a shot in the arm with new facilities for the football program, including a renovated Memorial Stadium and football field. Also, before he was hired by former athletic director Dick Reynolds, the Cardinals had only one winning season in 23 years. In his final seven seasons, the program had four winning years and saw the school’s first berth into the NCAA Division III playoffs in 2008 with a 9-2 record and 8-1 in the OAC, second to Mount Union. Loth was named OAC Coach of the Year and Ohio Coach of the Year that season.

With the win, Otterbein is 7-14, 4-10 and sits in a tie for eighth place with three teams who all lost on Saturday, Muskingum, Heidelberg and Mount Union.

In the second half, the Cardinals would go on a 15-3 run in the second half to open up the lead to 67-55 with 7:08 to go.

But the Blue Streaks cut the lead down to 74-70 with 3:21 to play but Otterbein took control from there and the game was over.

Leading the way was RaNeal Ewing, who came off the bench for a game-tying 21 points. Five players were in double figures scoring for the Cardinals. Ewing grabbed six rebounds.

Brice Rausch put up 18 points on 7 of 7 shooting from the floor.

Otterbein shot.571 from the floor.

Corey Shontz led the Blue Streaks with 21 and eight assists. JCU shot .424 from the field.

The game which wasn’t pretty had 52 fouls called and 68 free-throw attempts.
