Airport @ Grosse Ile

Airport (3-1) is coming off a thrashing at the hands of SMCC 37-7 while Grosse Ile (3-1) lost at Milan 21-14. Airport won last season's game in Carleton 28-14.

Airport looks to pick up the pieces and stay in the league race at Grosse Ile. The defense must get better this week while the offense searches for a spark that has been missing since week 2.

Grosse Ile is hoping to bounce back after losing to a solid Milan team. The Islanders aren't big but boast a very capable offense and defense.

In what appears to be a wide open league race the winner of this match up will still have a shot at the league crown. Another tight game but home field has to mean something. Pick: Grosse Ile 28 Airport 21.

Haven't seen GI play yet this year. They 've clearly got some athletes but if tradition holds their not especially a large group. So if Airport can keep fresh guys in there they should be able to wear the Devils down.

Airport seems to be in a funk ever since their win against the View. With the exception of last week they 've continued to play decent in spite of whatever rumored drama with the coach has occurred. I look for them to rebound this week.

Airport 28 GI 24

I too see a rebound. Should see the run return which will help the pass. Coach situation not an excuse anymore..but it seems coach V may be a bit distracted. Coaching improves this week too. Fire up that grill GI...here we come.

GI is the better team. Airport was over rated from the very start. Could be a blow out.

The stakes are big, winner stays in the league race and the loser is out. Airport's defense looks to respond after getting pushed around by CC. It won't be easy, GI has plenty of weapons with the supersoph at QB and Nellenbach and Christen in the backfield. Airport wins a nailbiter 21-20. EM

Airport was just way over-rated. All you have to do is put 10 guys on Scott Mccormick and you win. He is the only talent they have that can hurt you.

Where is your prediction for the game of the week, Chris????

Air was paddled severly by a team that GI beat....proof that bus-stop faithful are, shall we say, SILLY! But you gotta love the devotion.

DUDEs will be hungry and Y show will be in homecoming lights. 28-13 Devils

SITOFN picks Grosse Ile to beat Airport every year and he is always wrong.

At least he's consistent. That more than we can say about Airports football team!

Airport coaching is very good. Do some research to find out when they became a winning program and you will see coach vanwasshenova was the defensive coordinator at that point. All teams take a misstep. They will rebound and win a share of the league.

"All you have to do is put 10 guys on Scott McCormick and you win. He is the only talent they have that can hurt you." Check your facts, Josh Bernard has 7 TDs this season.

I dont think anybody is blaming the coaches at Airpot. John is a great guy and learned from Redman. The problem is that the talent is gone and from the looks of the JV and Freshman games verse SMCC thing s are not going to get any better. Also, GI was beyond lucky beating SMCC. They did not win it but CC gave them that game, so all you GI fans need to smell the roses here. You are not that good.

ARE YOU FRICKEN KIDDING ME! Airport sneaks past Riverview, Flat Rock, and Adrian and you're talking about how lucky GI has been this year. Please-look in the mirror. Lets also forget that crap about CC gave GI the game. You obviously did not see the game, I was there, and trust me when I tell you the secong half of that game was GI completely. GI simply turned it up and took it to CC after halftime. Thats the facts jack!!!

FYI, that is the worst Adrian team in 20 years.

SITOFN is a grown man who no longer has kids on the football team, he is a former Booster club president and a complete fool. When grosse ile was bad, he would come on this blog and call out players by name and number, he insults the coaches when gi loses, but puts on a smile to their face at team functions. SITOFN is a not a true red devil, and i wouldnt take anything he says to seriously.

Great Football Friday this week. Alot will be revealed about the teams (Especially SMCC, Milan, & Grosse Isle)

Coach V has done well taking over the helm. Look for a bounce back from the Jets. Another year of SITOFN silence after the game. LOL

The banter is hilariious.

Airport is definitely overrated this year. Unfortunately for them. they are hurting at all levels because of grades. Many kids are out, some significant. Mostly on JV and Freshman teams, a few on Varsity(besides all the coaching issues) Airport will be back and Airport will be good in the future, just got to get everybody back eligible. Maybe hire some tutors like that school in the city does.
For this year GI wins 28-14.

Ouch! I guess all is fair in love and war.

I doubt anyone calling Airport overrated will be on the blog later tonight after Airport's big win.

Everyone attending the school in the city has tutors available to them ... by other students at no cost. It is called community service and is great for school spirit.

I won't be "surprised" if airport wins. It is hs football and anything can happen. But I promise you GI is the better team

GI alum....
Seriously, you obviously don't read my posts, but rather "read into them" what YOU want to hear.....nor do you have any facts straight.

But the good thing about a blog is that you can air filth based on opinion, not facts...or is that a bad thing about blogs??

GO Red Devils.
