Huron League Thoughts and Questions

The league went 11-5 in non-league games with 2 wins coming over playoff teams.

Riverview and Airport aren't playing vintage SEC opponents this week but will have tough contest.

Jefferson's win over Bedford certainly opened some eyes.

Lot's of good running backs in the league this season.

Have any of the Detroit Kettering kids ever been on an island other than Belle Isle?

Flat Rock has to feel better about next season after recording 3 wins with one coming over Jefferson and another Milan.

How anxious are the returning SMCC players to take the field next seaso?

If you had to pick a QB to start a team who would you take from the league teams?

Milan may not have another season like that again.

Any weight rooms open yet?

After much thought I'm starting to feel the league may not be down. I'll have a better idea come Friday night though.

Friday Night Predictions

Airport 28 Tecumseh 13: This is a game the Jets should dominate but the Indians play a tough schedule and this may be a game.

Riverview 31 Algonac 18: The Pirates should be able to use this as a tune up game for the playooffs.

Grosse Ile 28 Dundee 27: Most likely the game of the night. The Islanders need to get back on track. Dundee could use a win to help them gain momentum for the playoffs.

SMCC 847 Windsor Assumption 0:Forfeit

Huron 21 Crestwood 20: Crestwood has been playing better as the season has gone on. This will be a much tougher test than expected.

Bedford 41 Jefferson 12: This game could get ugly but don't be surpirsed if the Bears compete.

Flat Rock 28 Erie Mason 21: The Rams owe the Eagles from last season's closer. Flat Rock cannot afford to look opast anyone.

South Lyon East 28 Milan 20: East plays a tougher schedule and will most likely end the Big Reds season on a sour note.

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

Nice win for Jefferson to end the league season.

When was the last time SMCC finished with a losing record?

Riverview made me look foolish this season.

Congrats to Airport for running the league schedule.

When was the last time Milan finished last in a league?

Grosse Ile better not look past Dundee.

Both Flat Rock and Huron disappointed a little this season but both should be better next season..

I'm convinced that the league was down this year.

Airport and Riverview need to avoid Thurston in the playoffs.

Grosse Ile could win a few games if they avoid Crockett.

Any coaching changes coming in the league?

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

How about the Detroit Lions?

Best football rivalry in the league and why?

Flat Rock's Colin Knoch is basically a guard playing fullback.

SMCC probably has a chance of making the playoffs if they can finish 5-4.

Which team has been the league biggest disappointment this season?

Riverview certainly has exceeded my expectations this season.

Who ends up the Offensive Player of the Year?

How about Defensive Player of the Year?

Does Riverview hate Grosse Ile because the best part of their "View" is the "Island"?

Michigan State or Michigan?

Huron League Thoughts and Questions

I wonder how Huron League teams will fare in the playoffs this year?

Defensive Player of the Year?

Any good games this week?

I'm going to check out that GI/Huron JV game Thursday.

SITOFN, that sump pump stuff is killing me. Mine failed over the weekend. It wasn't pretty.

I have lost quite a few McNasty burgers this season. I officially know nothing.

I might check out that FR/SMCC game Friday.

Coach of the Year?

Best lineman this year?

Rivalry week outta be fun next week.

Are the defenses around the league better this year or are the offenses a little down?
