Huron League Thoughts and Questions

Do SMCC and Constantine ever get sick and tired of playing each other?

Give me home grown islanders over prep school all stars any day of the week.

Bodner and Giarmo can really coach

There is no way I'm driving all the way to Battle Creek.

I will be driving to Gibraltar though to see Brother Rice and Wyandotte.

Is it Thanksgiving already?

Pretty sure this is my last year of doing the blog. ATA will be adding football next season.

It would be a shame to not continue this blog. I am the SMCC doubter that Terry and you don't seem to be able to figure out.
Anyhow, I do enjoy your blog, even though I am not the most popular guy on here most of the time, but hey, thats what a blogs for, Right? Hopefully you decide to continue or find a replacement.

Huronleaguefootball said...

P L E A S E dont give up the blog. We NEED you. The Huron league gets no press, and when they do it is drivel. Come on.......

If SITOFN ran it...it would be like Heaven! I would have to sensor idiotic comments that Chris would let slide.

My pick record might be as good though... ;-)

Rest assured....no SITOFN blog!
Did I say go GI yet?

I am dissapointed that you are not going to do the blog next year. You always did a great job!
But I will say that I was also bothered by your comment about taking islander boys over prep school boys any day. Just seems unlike you.

Huronleaguefootball said...

I think you missed my point on that.I was simply saying I would rather have a bunch of Grosse Ile kids that grew up together than a bunch of rich kids from all over the place that attend a $20k a year school.

Anonymous said...

Chris was clearly comparing Grosse Ile to Country Day. Remember this is a Huron league blog.

Huronleaguefootball said...

That is exactly what I was saying.

Amen, to 8:40 comments and to 1:08
comments. Been saying that all year long. MUCH more gratification to a team that grew up together than a team that was assembled.

MHSAA needs to make another divison for private schools.

What did you say about throttled Nutty butter??

Huronleaguefootball said...

Rice beat Wyandotte 31-3. I would say my prediction of a 34-10 Rice win was pretty good. For that matter I picked Constantine to beat SMCC.

Anonymous said...

So much for the private schools and the state championships?

I believe most of them are private. At least 9 or 10 anyhow.
Once again, they need their own division to battle it out.

Wyandotte was a darn good team, seen them play, took a well organized, recruited Rice team to beat them and thats a shame. They would have beat any public school team they played.

Huronleaguefootball said...

Muskegon and Caledonia would have beaten Wyandotte.

calpreps.com which has done a marvelous job of picking games via a computer model picked at nearly an 80% clip this season They picked 12 of16 games correct this weekend. They predicted the RICE/Dotte score to be 34-7. Calpreps projected both Caledonia and Muskegon beating Wyandotte when I enter those games.

The public school private school thing gets old. Teams just need to get better if they expect to win the coveted prize of a state championship.

chris who is better 2011 or 2012 grosse ile?

Huronleaguefootball said...

calpreps.com says the 2012 team would win 30-28.

All this talk about private schools. With school of choice I don't want to hear about recruiting. Maybe they should have a division for private schools. They can call it the " Winners Division ". You might want to look at SMCC a little closer and realize that those kids and teams in the past play bigger teams with more talent but because they practice harder and have better coaching they win. Dont be a sour apple ! Give credit to where credit is due. Good job SMCC you made us proud AGAIN !

Huronleaguefootball said...

I think that the private school argument is old as well but don't think for a minute that school of choice choice is an advantage. Most public schools have limited spots available. Huron has open enrollment but I believe they had 7 spots open for 9th grade this year. Fifty kids may apply but it is a random drawing that is in an open public forum.

As for practicing harder or working harder. no they don't. All kids practice hard. Take Riverview for instance, those kids are put together. That comes from hours and hours in the weight room and conditioning.

As for the best coach, I think Jack is a great coach but is he the best in the league? I don't know. Stergalas has an impressive resume it would be tough to discount him.

Do SMCC and private schools have advantages? Yea, I think they do but are they unfair? No way. You know about the advantages that I am talking about. Once again, they are not unfair they just are what they are. Think about it! You know what I'm talking about.

We will never know if Caledonia and Muskegon would have beat Wyandotte. Brother Rice is way stacked, kids move here to go there. No recruiting there.

Winners division.?? Great idea. We will see who the winners are then.

All kids practice hard and many have good coaches, any coach is only as good as the talent he has.
The private/public issue will go on and on. Any school can recruit some and use the school of choice card. Look at Milan, they are coming to the top in Football, Basball and Basketball. Rumors are everywhere that they have kids from different areas.
Well, they have done it properly and are helping their program immensely.If all the schools do this, the private school advantage will disappear, because public school is free.

I believe Milan beat our local private school over the last year in all 3 of those sports.

A new facility helps also. Look at Dundee, they are on the rise too.

Hope the blog continues!!!

You can say they all practice the same but the reality is that they don't. You can practice hard and still get no place but if you practice hard and the right way then you are talking results. So to say that all teams practice like each other is just a false claim. Go watch the difference.I am not saying the private schools all practice better either. They just seem to have better coaches all around. No doubt that schools like Milan, Airport at times, GI and Jefferson for the most part are right there with hard work and coaching. The results of these programs speak for themselves. My point is no matter if it is private or public the coaches make the difference and a practice is not just a practice. As far as the school of choice comment I believe it is true to a point. Look at Inkster, Melvindale and Rouge. They have all had loaded teams with kids not from within the school district limits. It may not make a difference at Huron but other schools it makes a huge difference. I do see this effecting basketball more than football.

Well said. Thanks for including Jefferson, but Cisco is past his time. The devoted assistants who want to replace him very much have the mentality you stated.

When you have a good program the kids will come to you, one way or another.
