I think Butler was very close to being on the same level as Mallard Creek and on a level above the other teams you listed, based on what happened on the field. You cannot ignore how one-sided the Butler-Richmond game was, or that Butler shut Mallard Creek out for a half. Butler-Mallard Creek was still a one score game with 30 seconds left, and that was back when Mallard Creek was at full strength personnel-wise.hokie i think u could put butler, catholic, vance, sc, dudley and rc in the same class with butler having the best d, vance best o, catholic best coaching, dudley best athletes along with sc and rc if that makes any sense.
You still lose that game decisively even without any turnovers. The Butler D gave up 22 total yards in the 1st half, and it's going to be hard for Richmond to beat anyone when they can't even get a first down.We killed ourselves in the butler game with the turnovers!
