Playoff Comments

A couple idle thoughts on the match ups:

Milan will have their hands full with Adrian.

Airport got a nice draw.

Huron has a solid chance.

SMCC will roll.

Please feel free to post any playoff comments you have here. I will get things posted ASAP.

Chris, I would like to hear your thoughts on how you think SMCC will do against the passing of bolster?

Huronleaguefootball said...

Great question! I will touch on that later this week but I believe he will be running for his life with SMCC's solid pass rush. Their DB's have improved every week since week 1. There is a little difference between playing in the LCAA and the Huron League.

I'm not questioning his talent one bit. I think the leagues are completely different and we will see that on Friday.

Thurston beat crestwood 36-3,Huron beat them 35-7 and Airport beat Huron. Yea I know scores dont mean a whole lot but I think that shows you that Airport has a really good chance to beat Thurston. Thurston quite simply just hasnt beaten anybody good. There opponents that they have beaten have a combined record of 17-46(.270)

How true. CC's pass rush has forced many a QB to make a bad decision, and the secondary has been there to make big plays.

Huronleaguefootball said...

I agree! Airport has a great chance to win that game. What an opportunity for the Jets and the Huron League.

I believe SMCC may have scrimmaged Thurston.

Hmmm nice thought, but here's a better one for you: Riverview beat Airport 34-6; Huron beat Riverview 24-14; Airport beat Huron 49-32.. There's a nice little circle, but anywho, scores don't matter, what matters is when your team shows up and does work and executes every play and go hard til the whistle. Thurston can win.. Specially if JM has a big head with 1600 rushing yards.

Redford Thurston is a very good team. Big and fast.

Yes CC did scrimmage Thurston and it was pretty even.

If Redford were in the Huron League it would have challenged for the title.

It is also my opinion that Thurston is a better team then Adrian. So when Chris says they got a good district... no so fast my friend. Adrian is a fraud in a VERY weak SEC conference. Heck Jefferson ran for 500 yards on the SEC champ(Bedford) in week 9.

Mays will have to be great(he normaly is). The Jets D will have to step up against the run. I attended the Franklin game and Livonia ran all over the Jets.

I again happen to be making a couple recruiting visits to yet another Airport opponent(strange it just worked out this way). It's always a great time in the schools when the playoffs arrive.

It is a winnable gamee for Airport but they will have to play better than they have all year.

Good Luck Jets!

Well KC, I agree with evrything u said about Airport but the JM big head part. Airport has develop a nak for getting a late start in many of their games. This Sec half crap just want cut it and I think JM hardly has a Big Head about the yardage. His head has been in grass in the back field in most of the games. Along with hearing over rated at one school that tore him apart. I believe the kid is humble and very discipline. I guess not knowning certain things makes it easier to assume the worst about people...hmmm
Go Airport.

Dundee is a much better team now then they were just a few short weeks ago. The 5-4 record is a bit deceiving. They played 6 playoff teams and won their last 2 vs those teams. They beat a good Hillsdale team who has a couple good wins under their belt as well.

Bolster will pose problems for the Falcons. He is big and has a rocket arm. He set the Monroe County Region record for passing yards in a single season. I think that speaks for itself.

It will surely be a contrast of syles this Friday at Navarre Field. It will help Dundee that the coaching staff sees Hudson every year. As some of you may know, Hudson runs the Fullhouse T pretty much the same way SMCC does.

I think some see a 50-14 score but I think it may be closer. If Bolster can sit in the pocket, CC may have their hands full.

Good luck Falcons!

I honestly think Huron is the favorite vs Divine Child. DDC's schedule was so weak this year it is hard to tell what they are made of.

I have to give the nod to the chief's. It is my belief that the Huron league has them better prepared for the playoffs then DDC will be.

Dont look ahead Chiefs but I also like your chances vs the other side of the district. Melvindale and Detroit Central are also very beatable.

Hopefully Huron will have a great week of practice. Coach K's toughest job may be getting his band of Chiefs to believe they can win. It is such a big deal that Huron made it to the playoffs I hope they dont settle for just that.

This is a VERY winnable game for Huron. Get it done!

A great story potentially brewing in Huron... I hope it gets written.

Good Luck Chiefs!

Huronleaguefootball said...

Great stuff BN! I appreciate the input and I'm sure all the readers do as well.

I don't think Dundee is a slouch, I just believe that SMCC is that good.

I think your right on the SEC being down and obviously Adrian's loss last week was bad. I just don't see Milan winning that game.

Thurston has some talent but do they really have a signature win? They have some signature losses but do those count? Thurston didn't beat a playoff team while the Jets beat two. I think that is a winnable game for the Jets and the next game would be even more winnable.

Divine Child and Huron should be a good match up. Those kids at Huron a pretty heady and they will enter this game believing they can win.

Anonymous said...

I just went with the eyeball test on Thurston. No they dont have any wins to write home about but when you watch them play, you are impressed.

They also seem to be a well coached bunch which is not often said about Detroit area programs. They are a powerful team who runs it right at you. I am not sure if that suites Airport well.

One thing is for sure, they will play the game and I too give Airport a decent shot at pulling out a win. If they keep care of the ball and if Mays rips off a few long ones for scores they will be right in this one.

The reason I mentioned Adrian(the team most though Airport was going to play) is that I think Thurston would beat Adrian thus Airport getting the tougher first round draw.

Yes Milan will have their hands full with Adrian but I hope they destroy them and expose the SEC for what it is...

Come on people no one in the huron league came close to stopping CCs ground game you think Dundee is? Not to disrespect Dundee in anyway i just think they are going to be overwhelmed with CCs speed and how physical there line is!!!!Your talking about the huron league champs and the middle of the back LCAA team!!!!

BN get a clue CC rolls but they will be challenged by Ecorse!!!!

Dundee 34 Smcc 28 Catholics go down in 1st round and prove to people how weak the Huron League really is... GO VIKINGS BE CC!!!!

Michael said...

The Huron League is so week that is why last years game with Blissfield versus SMCC was so close. Did you miss that game? I know it was a long time ago. I see all the work with your therapist has gotten you past that trauma. Good for you. Nevermind I take back even commenting on your post. Hope it is a good game: go SMCC!

the LCAA is not even half the league of the Huron League..

to the post at 2:03 Im sure the Vikings would love to be like SMCC.

Anonymous said...

CC will have a running clock on Dundee by halftime..whoever said 34-28 is getting into the sauce!! I'm sure Maloney will credit Heiserman for 45 tackles against SMCC because his defense will be on the field the whole game..Dundee passing offense = lots of incomplete passes = SMCC dominates time of possession = Bolster will be exposed by his lack of mobility = SMCC 56 Dundee 12

We are not scared of Smcc we are coming to Monroe with an attitude so watch out CC your not that good, we are going to win this friday night and shock the world!!!!PAIN!!!!

Dundee, that would just be plain ugly. Better be ready Falcons!

Is it true that the CC/Dundee game will be played at Monroe High? Navarre Field is condemed. Rotten light poles. Moved the MJHS games to MHS today.
That field is pretty bright....know what I mean?

game will be held in the dark dingy Navarre Field.

CC is not that good and you will see friday night people we are shutting down the town of Dundee for this game!!!!

Is Dundee seriously talking crap right now. They will lose anywhere from 30-60 points. Depending on how generous Giarmo is. I bet SMCC beats the vikings 63-0.

Anonymous said...

Shutting down Dundee huh? If Andy and Barney are at the game, then who keeps the town safe? Seriously though, SMCC should score every drive without much problem.

Anonymous said...

Careful Vikings. Should've joined the blog earlier this year to see how well the smack-talk pays off in an actual game against CC. Your chances of staying in the game are slim. Cautious optimism is a better option. You're setting yourselves up to look foolish. For reference, see Blissfield/CC 2009, Manchester/CC 2009, Huron League/CC 2010.

That Andy and Barney crack was to much....nearly wet myself,that was classic...Hope both teams play well but rooting for CC...GO FALCONS

Anonymous said...

Yes dundee does have a great QB, but if their defence cant stop CC's run game that wont matter because he wont see the field. The other thing is that CC has something Dundee doesnt, Experience. They are returning almost an entire offensive line that can obviously move people, and almost an entire defence that has shut out 3 teams already. If bolster sits in the pocket it will collapse and he will be sacked. I do believe this will either be a barn burner or it will be a blow out and that all depends on the attitude that CC comes out with.

So just disregard the Queen's English and use the language we have bastardized?

Jeff in Dundee said...

SMCCs triple option this Friday is going to consist of sack, fumble, and punt. They are just lucky they got the LCAAs fourth best team. That gives them a chance at respectability. Dundee wins going away without recruiting.

Anonymous said...

in regards to football yes. When there is a NFL team in England then go with the Queen:)

I often wonder if you spell it that way so someone will tell you it is incorrect only so you can use the Canadian/England excuse.

I have been to both England and Canada.. those countries dont hold a candle to this one. You live in America.... the best country in the world. Assimilate or move on.

It's rumored that goober drives the bus for dundee and won't be in town either.

Geez O' Petes people can we stop with the spelling lessons. Who cares!

Huronleaguefootball said...

Triple option? Who runs that? The Falcons run the straight T.

Recruiting? Stop, just look at their roster. All those kids attended grade school at Catholic schools in the Monroe area.

In regards to the triple option, CC hasn't run that in years. Wake up before you talk sh*# know what it is you are talking about.Another well informed Dundee grade schooler who has discovered the internet. Your post is like wikipedia: write what you want, doesn't mean it is true.

Michael said...

To the poster of the SMCC recruiting comment: that is funny stuff. Kinda like the pot calling the kettle black. Did you really stop to think before you typed that? I doubt it. Yes we do get kids from different grade schools. I would like to ask you do you know where Justin Heiserman lives? 1 guess not Dundee. How about the Redina boys guess number 2? Let's just say not Dundee. How many other school of choicers are you gonna claim? It is okay that this happens for you so the mighty Viking wrestling team is great? Last time I checked this is America a country based on FREEDOM OF CHOICE! Look it up on wikipedia you might learn something. I just want to say as a resident of Monroe County I am proud of our sporting accomplishments, whether it be Bedford wrestling or Monroe High cross country or Airport volleyball. Why be a hater? Appreciate what the KIDS accomplish life will be much easier. My rant for the day.

Dundee should never talk about recruiting, didn't heiserman come from IDA to wrestle at Dundee who would do your tackling without him or his brother maybe bolster

Goober said...

Gooolly! I think CC is in trouble this weekend. What do you think, Andy?

Anonymous said...

Rumor has it CC recruited a kid a while back from Romulus, he may be a jv kid, I dont know.

Anonymous said...

Enough with recruiting. I have to say it sounds like people are trying to make excuses before the game is even played. I seen it posted here previously, the CC team is comprised of CYO kids, not recruits as you put it. Besides, did it ever occur to any of you there might be some kid out there who sees a successful program and decides (with his parents)that he would like to play there? Is that recruiting? Quit making excuses. . IF SMCC wins Friday its because they are a better team, Period

Anonymous said...

If CC recruits why isnt your kid going there? Thats right they only pick the best. GET OVER YOURSELF.All these boys have some sort of Christian background no matter where they come from,so they should go to a public school because YOU think its right,I think the structure and education may have something to do with as well as continuing their beliefs,CC has a good program there but no one goes just for the sports,Be Real.Baseball? Wrestling?Basketball..all average.

But we've seen that even if you leave it, your school still could play CC next year...

yes CC has a kid from Romulus

Michael said...

Yes there is, oh my gosh, please sit down, a kid from romulus that attends smcc. Shocking! He is at cc because his parents chose to send him there. He is a sophomore played freshman year on freshman team and this year on the JV. Come on you are seriously still beating that dead horse? Do you want to list all the Dundee students from Monroe? Why does it matter? The game will be played tonight by students not stupid fans or dumb parents. Thank God!
