Any team has a shot if they can slow down Smith!! Without Smith...they wouldn't even be able to compete with the AA schools

any team can beat anyone at any time. I would say lisbon has a good shot to beat them other than that i think they've survived the tougher part of their schedule. If they were to play Devils Lake that would be a good game.

They gave up 2 TD to Central Cass and 1 to Shanley. I think that they can be beaten, but it will be a very low scoring game and it will be between Wahp and a top team. Smith is an excellent RB, and I'm assuming that means they have a pretty good OL as well (hard to have one with out the other :) . If Smith gets hurt I wonder if they have any options. I haven't seen much passing yardage or even attempts out of them and I'm not sure how the other RBs they have compare to him since they rarely touch the ball.

Shanley had chances at the end of the game to score but just couldn't get it in. They defiantly played Whapeton evenly and had a chance so they could be them

Has there been a team in the last ten years more one-dimensional on offense then Waph is this year? The only one I can think of is Minot Ryan in 2000 with Jared Essler when he would get like 40 carries a game... they got beat in the regular season by Trinity (but did go on to win a State Title that year).

Like Minot Ryan in 2000 Waph seems to only have one weapon... and thats dangerous... you come up against a well coached team that can put nine/ten guys in the box because they have good d-backs to defend the on or two shots they take downfield... I think its very possible to beat Waph... But like Essler in 2000 you have to tackle well because if you don't Smith will make you pay... I think Waph will get beat at some point... they aren't as dominate as everyone expected... they've had two scares already... and they would be in real trouble if they lost Smith even for a half...

Good post. I would probably rank Wahpeton #1, but they can be beaten.

yes, the Wahpeton of '08, '07, '06, etc.... but it's not that they're one dimensional, it's just that nobody can stop their rushing game... they're the navy of ND HS football

Whap is very one dimensional but they are very good at what they do. They were able to beat AAA teams by being one dimensional and they have to believe that they can beat any one in AA doing the same. They way to stop Whap is not by defense but by putting up more points on offense than they can.

They do have a one dimensional offense, but they have a great offensive line that has been opening up holes against 8 men in the box. The most overlooked part about the team is their starting defense, they have only allowed 3 touchdowns in 6 games.

You can be one-dimensional and win in the regular season... to win in the Playoffs you have to at least be able to have the preception that you can throw the ball (does Waph have this?)... Rarely if ever (Minot Ryan 2000) does a team win a title or in the playoffs by being so one-dimensional...If I were a coach I'd put 8 guys in the box with a ninth guy (saftey?) playing the middle of the field and spying Smith the whole game... go wherever he goes...

Central Cass and Shanley have pretty good blueprints for how to beat Waph, they just couldn't put up the points needed (they may a second time around)... Every coach out west is trying to get their hands on those two tapes right now to see what they did and tweak their game plan...

It only takes one sub-par game by Smith for Waph to lose... For those of us that aren't Waph fans, lets hope thats against our team in the playoffs...

I'm pretty sure Ryan didn't win state in 2000 but I think they did in 99 and that is around the time that Essler was there so I think thats the team you are thinking of.

Eggman, you're absolutely right... Trinity won it in 2000 and 2001... I graduated in the Spring of 2002 so I at times get the years confused having been a sophmore when Ryan won it... thanks for the correction...

I'm just surprised OG scored 20 points on them, weren't the Huskies fairly stingy thus far?? Does the defense have some problems, or was their JV in?

Wahpeton I think will go undefeated but you never know there maybe that one team that may just pull of the upset but I don't see that as long as Smith has a good game, but if Smith struggles or gets hurt in a game, then it is possible that Wahpeton may loss
