There weren't many surprises on the opening night of football around the Huron League but they are some thoughts and questions that I have.

GI vs NBH may be the most telling game this week.....2 teams that had blow-out wins against questionable opponents in week 1. I think week 2 will produce a questionable opponent too....but who will it be?

It will be no accident that Huron is across the street from Michigan Memorial....GI will bury the hopes of Huron Gridiron resurgence.

GI does have a "D" and the Red Devils offense scores at will against whoever's across the line scrimmage.

Strap it up boys!!

GI 31
NBH 13

Jefferson 35 SMCC 20

Jefferson dominates up front while the big FB gains 5 yards a pop. the Falcons are a laugh right now. Big Heads and no work ethic. GO BEARS!!!!!

SMCC is a joke of a team with no heart!! I knew this was going to happen. All big headed and living off last year. too funny!!

Anonymous said...

im not a CC fan, to tell you the truth i hate them (former airport player). but i have to say everyone around here is out of control. you dont bash a team because they lost thats not right. its not even like they lost to a bad team like erie mason (sorry) they lost to a good team. i just think its enough saying they are terrible and have no heart. lets get a life and not sit here and bash teenagers.

Being a parent of Jefferson I think some of these comments are amazing. I sure hope we come out on top on Friday and believe we can but to come on here and say we crush them etc.... may be a bit forward. We always play CC tough no matter what type of team we have. We do have a very special team this year I believe and I also believe they can go a long way. I just don't want to be known of the team that comes on here and starts trash talking. Let the boys do all the talking come Friday night. CC has had the success for the last several years and Jefferson has had nothing to talk about. I know we are all excited for the season but don't get ahead of ourselves and be the people on here that we have been laughing about in past years. It will be a great game on Friday and I believe the Bears will be on top at the end. Talk with your pads and play with your heart bears!

They are a laugh of a team cuz they got beat by Crockett? And Jefferson won ONE game? Wow, you are very desperate. Get some reality, man.

Mr. HuronLeagueMan said...

1. I think GI will pull one out against Huron this week. I am a big Robbie White fan and believe he will lead the Devils to a victory.

2. Aren't people being a little tough on SMCC? I didn't see the game, but they have been dominating the league for a few years now. I didn't think they would be as good this year from the start, but they will be a player in the league championship.

3. Milan vs. Riverview is the most intriguing game to me this week. Yes, that does mean bigger than CC/Jefferson. Milan has a big loss last season to avenge, and the Bucs have their first chance to show their alleged return to the upper echelon of the Huron League.

4. My biggest question is which sophmore quarterback will have the biggest week? After seeing Riverview play last week, I think that Milan may have to mix in the pass in order to get their offense ticking, so Jacob Hagemann may have to play well again for the Big Reds to win.

5. Didn't Jefferson have a very similar win over Tecumseh last season before going 4-5? Also their line is pretty small throughout from what I understand. So I still have questions about their legitimacy.

Very interesting week for the Huron League. Good luck to all teams.

Huronleaguefootball said...

Well it's early in the season and it looks like this rivalry is heating up a bit

I personally think that it will be a good game that could go either way. I know when I was working on my pre-season picks that I had a certain team winning and I will not waiver. I will probably have that prediction Wednesday some time.

Will the be any tail gating going on at Navarre Field on Friday? I was considering writing about that at some point and if I remember correctly SMCC has done that as well as Jefferson. Maybe I can stop by take some pictures, get some quotes, eat some food:) and get busy on an article.

Anonymous said...

im sick of jefferson people calling smcc players choir boys. all i know is my team put it to jefferson 21-0 a game that the score was nowhere close as it appeared. Stop hating on my boys, all you have to judge is the last time you played them and you did not win. has that much changed since last years team? besides the absence of a few proven players? they have a good team still

I think that somene needs to start an SMCC blog.

Chris, Jefferson will be tailgating at 5. Stop by for some food and thoughts. You will not be able to miss us. Looking forward to seeing you.

Anonymous said...

I don't normally respond to these blogs(although I do admit reading them) but as a Jefferson parent I too agree this is getting out of hand. There has always been a rivalry between Jefferson & CC but in the most part it has been clean & in the spirit of any sport. I'm not into trashing any team or school! I am into promoting school spirit! CC played a tough team & lost that doesn't mean they have no discipline it just means the other team was better prepared for the match up. As for Jefferson they to played a team with many returners & were much bigger than them & in the end won. So does that mean Jefferson will beat CC...I hope so...but utimately it depends on the team who shows up to play! Do I think the two teams are a good match up? Most definitely! I always look forward to these two teams playing against one another as do most. Something amazing happens when the two of them compete unlike any other team. It is a must see game that many almuni's attend even if they have no one but the school itself to cheer for. So I wish both teams Good Luck & may the best prepared team win! Go Bears! Oh & to answer Chris I'm sure they'll be a tailgating or two @ the navare field. Hope to see u there

Keep trying to drum up interest in your game SITOFN. THere is only one game in the league this week and it isnt Huron vs GI. Both teams played absolute patsies their first game. Like all are saying the big games for Huron and GI are when they play the big 4 and actually win one. Good luck.

I wonder if you Jefferson people have ever heard of the term "let the sleeping dog lie"? Keep it up and you may get more then a seranade from the choir boys.

Go Bears!!! Beat those pretty boy Smucks!!! Holds hands on there way onto the field? hahahahaha crush those choir boys Bears!!

HL Fan Man said...

Been watching HL football for years. Here's the scoop for this Friday:

- Jefferson fans on here are going to feel pretty silly after CC puts a smack down on them, 35-14.

- Grosse Ile could catch the Chiefs napping Friday night, 28-20.

- Flat Rock is still Flat Rock, Jets win 38-21.

- Milan is a MUCH better team at their place, why is that? Big Reds 21-8.

Potcova had a decent game but lets not get carried away. His footwork is too languid.

Anonymous said...

Jefferson crushes SMCC? Don't know about that but I sure do hope they win. SMCC is not soft but maybe a bit over confident. I believe CC lost last year to Crocket and look where they ended up. Don't get me wrong, I am NOT an SMCC fan. AT ALL! These two teams are a very good match. Though the Jefferson team this year is totally different. These are the boys who went 9-0 two years ago. They play with heart and spirit. I hope with all my heart Jefferson wins.

Anonymous said...

The CC rivilry is is always fun and its great to beat them. Every team in the league guns for them and I have to praise them for their results. We should be glad they are in our league. No one has yet earned the right to trash them - wait til you beat them. They played at Ford Field last year when everyone else was conditioning for winter sports. Be better then them - show some class. Trash'em on the field- not here!

Just how good is mayes from AP ? I still see FR losing this one but if we stop mayes the rams will be in this one as well -rams lose 33-14

Jefferson VS. SMCC is going to be a great game. Although I'm hoping my boy bears take the win. I wish SMCC good luck. Now that's called good sportsmanship and class we should all use it on Friday Night.

Mays From AP was sick on the SL last week - big hit/flu/nerves ?? He'll should have a break out game against FR . Seems now AP can pass out of trouble if Mays is keyed on. AP's special teams was scarry bad last week. That will never be so bad again.

i love how jefferson students/ football players keep posting stuff about how SMCC isn't good & how jefferson will "kill" them, well from what i can remember you little jefferson punks were saying that last year. remember last years game jefferson boys? hahaha oh yeah. SMCC has a big target on their back because they have class, talent, intelligence, confident, sportsmanship & everything you need to be successful. "EVERYONE WANTS TO BE US & EVERYONE WANTS TO BEAT US." Its going to be a great match up & little boys running their mouths only get burnedddd. Jefferson say what you want about CC it just shows the jealousy, unclassy people you trully are:)

All this tal about CC losing to Crocket. First of all, they lost to them by two touchdowns, which isnt that big of a blowout. Not to mention Crockets, 6! players going D1 next year. I dont think anyone from the huron league is going D1. But yes they did play bad which should scare jefferson even more. They played a 3 out of 10 in that game and still had 28 points. wait till they play there best against a much worse Jefferson team. CC is going to come out flying this week after being lit up in practice. Just watch out! CC wins big, and go's undefeated in the huron league this year. Remember this at the end of the season and quote me on it.....

Anonymous said...

CC lost to a team with 6 future D1 players! not a huron league team. they played bad and still only lost by 2 touchdowns....which means when they play good against jefferson, its game over

everyone including chris says a win is a win. well yea but a loss is also a loss, which is what CC did Friday.

Anonymous said...

Post Aug 31 at 4:35. "EVERYONE WANTS TO BE US & EVERYONE WANTS TO BEAT US." Ha thats a joke. You ask every kid on the varsity team if they wanna eat sleep or breath like cc and they will laugh in your face. Jefferson does not like CC and wants too do nothing but crush them on the field. No trash talking no nothing they just want to go out and punish people. Correct me if im wrong but jefferson does obviously have the formula too beat CC since they do have the overall winning record. Who ever said CC was the only one who made it too ford field while schools were gearing up for winter sports. Gosh im pretty sure Airport and Jefferson could make it there when they have made playoffs in the past if they went and played D6 chump teams after playing quality teams all year. CC is a joke. You couldnt pay Jefferson kids too step foot in that school. We DONT wanna be like them at all!!!!! Were Bears and thats it. Look for this Jefferson team to show everyone the heart they have too beat CC.

54s Dad said...

WOW...is there any football fans on this blog? I hope the CC vs Jefferson is a good game.All this trash talking,Hopefully it is a good strong fought game for both sides...win or lose I hope the boys get the chance to play a game of a life time and the fans of this blog act like true fans of the game.

Anonymous said...

Just because a team went to Ford Field doesnt make them a team to respect! The last time I checked Jefferson has a State Championship Title in their possession! Yes it may be from '94 but it is what it is! The '94 Bear team wasn't of large stature. But it was well discipline & we had talent & played with tremendous heart as do the boys of 2010. So win or lose CC we have something u dont have.....State Championship Title.
from '94 State Champion

Nothing wrong with a little banter back and forth among fans.

So far things have been pretty clean and nothing has been over the top. I have only deleted a few comments and I think they were posted just to see if they could sneak through.

Whatever is said on here won't effect the game on Friday. The kids will play, the coaches will coach, the fans will be fans and everyone will have fun with the winners feeling a little better about themselves.

Anonymous said...

Airport fans are out of the banter, who do they even play this week? Last year it was them and smcc with all the talk. Jefferson is feeling strong with one win under their belts. Smcc is down but hopefully not out. There's a lot of season left.

Michael said...

To the person who wrote about Jefferson having what CC doesn't. CC does have a State Championship, check your history in 1991 CC won it. I should add Flat Rock also has a Champioship in 1976. Check out this web site: Michigan-football.com you may learn something. Hopefully the game Friday night will be a good one. It has always been a HUGE rivalry, let the players play it.

Anonymous said...

Yep he said it. A state championship and also a overall winning record against cc lookout boys. This is the best the bears have looked in years!

Anonymous said...

SMCC has 2 state titles in football. 1969 and 1991. SMCC also has 3 state runner-ups 1984-2005-2009. Know what you speak of.

Anonymous said...

Actually SMCC has one title. Monroe Catholic Central has the other.

Jefferson is D3 or D4, why would you want to play D6 playoffs? I hope the Bears make it and make some noise in the playoffs against their piers. D6 is for small schools with 400 students like SMCC.

Anonymous said...

I am a CC fan, alum, former player, whatever... Let me please apologize for the 435 poster. We at CC do not think we are better then anyone else or that we should be handed wins as soon a we walk on the field of play. We respect all of our opponents. We know nobody is jealous of us or anything like that. That is just ridiculous. I am often embarrassed by what people put on here like the 435 guy. It is obvious to me that he is some juvenile with nothing better to do.

We at SMCC respect out rival Jefferson. When I played it was the only game we really wanted to win. It was one of our 5 team goals every year -Beat Jefferson- it hung in our locker room all year long. You live for games like this and the kids on the field this Friday will be lucky to be there. To play in one of the greatest rivalries in Monroe County and beyond.

May the teams play hard, play fair and may the team that plays the best, win. Good luck to The Falcons and the Bears as they meet up in another classic and respected battle in 2010.

Respect the rivalry

-Gary Hauf

Michael said...

Where do you people get your facts from? Jefferson doesn't have a winning record against CC. Since 1968 CC has won 28 and Jefferson 14 plus CC's 1 victory in playoffs. Does it matter? no. These two present teams are all that matter. Do some research (at least a little bit) you obviously have internet access look up some facts first. Friday night will give a school bragging rights for another year.

Heres the history of MCC/SMCC against the huron league....CC record against Jefferson is CC 30-14..CC 22-11 against Riverview..CC 40-1 against Huron..CC 37-9 against Airport..CC 40-9-1 against Flat Rock..CC 36-10-2 againt Grosse ile..CC 10-6 againt Milan...CC has 19 league championships..Riverview has 8..Jefferson has 7..Airport and Grosse ile has 6..Milan 5..Flat Rock 3..Huron o....I hope this helps everyone...

Gimme a break! Typical CC student and alum is brainwashed that they are better both on the field and in the classroom compared to the "public school scum". My CC colleagues like to remind me in their own sutle way all the time. That needs to be part of the motivation to beat CC in the Huron league. They don't line up across from you and see you as an equal.

There's a guy from Jefferson driving from Toledo to Monroe, and a guy from SMCC driving from Toledo to Monroe. In the middle of the night with no other cars on the road they hit each other head on and both cars go flying off in different directions. The Falcon manages to climb out of his car and survey the damage. He looks at his twisted car and says, "Man, I am really lucky to be alive!" Likewise the Bear scrambles out of his car and looks at his wreckage. He says, "I can't believe I survived this wreck!" The Falcon walks over to the Bear and before the Falcon Fan can get a word out the Bear fan says, "Hey man, I think this is a sign that we should put away our petty differences and live as friends instead of arch rivals. "The Falcon thinks for a moment, notices something in the Bear Fans' care and says, "You know, you're absolutely right! We should be friends. Now I'm gonna see what else survived this wreck. So the Falcon looks in the back of the Bears car to find just what he expected, a full unopened can of Beer. He says to the Bear, "I think this is another sign that we should toast to our new found understanding and friendship. The Bear says, "You're #@%! right! You Falcons aren't so bad afterall." and he grabs the can and starts gulping down on the beer. After putting away nearly half the can the Bear hands it back to the Falcon and says, "Your turn!" The Falcon tosses it back into the Bears' car and says, "Nahh, I think I'll wait for the cops to show up."

A student from Airport, Jefferson, and SMCC are all standing in the restroom taking care of business. The student from Airport finishes first. He shakes, zips up and heads to the sink. He uses an obscenely amount of soap to wash his hands and pulls all kinds of papertowels to dry them. He goes on to say, "At the Airport they teach us to be really clean." Just about that time, the student from Jefferson finishes. He shakes, zips up and heads to the sink. He only uses a little bit of soap to wash his hands, and only one paper towel to dry. He says, "At Jefferson they teach us to be clean, but economical." At that time the student from SMCC finishes his business. He shakes, zips up and just walks out the bathroom. He says, "At SMCC, they teach us not to piss on our hands."

The Bear then comes back with yes I did see that but that was back in the 60's wasnt it? Also I noticed it was D6. Wow that was real hard

Too who ever responded in the past about the overall record between Jefferson and CC. If you have a half of brain I thought you would notice I was talking about the overall record since it has been in Giarmos hands. The bears have the formula too beat them its been proved in the past. This year is the best team jefferson has had in a long time.

Anonymous said...

LOL.... they didnt have D6 in the 60's. You didnt see SMCC playing on TV last November? Speaking of D6 I am positive that Constantine, Montague, Nouvel, Blissfield, Hudson, TCSF, Mendon, Ravenna etc... would wipe the field with Jefferson every year. You will have your chance to see how hard a D6 school is to beat this Friday. I am a realist however and I know Jefferson will be tough this year. I just hope the game is well played and injury free. May the best team win. Good Luck!

The word "too"(used twice in the above paragraph) is used to describe excess or to mean also or as well. I think you mean to use the word "to" which has nearly 30 meanings and uses. So When you use the words "half a brain" you may want to check yourself at the door.

Wow Chris - what has this blog gone to? I have always been an admirer of the hard work and class from SMCC. I'm very disappointed in the SMCC crowd these days! They have officially lowered themselves about three class levels and have now joined the ranks of three other teams in the Huron League - which I WON'T mention as I am trying to hold myself to a higher standard. Good luck to all of the teams in the Huron League this season!
