Airport @ SMCC

Airport (1-4) lost at Flat Rock last week 34-28 while SMCC (5-0) defeated Grosse Ile 35-7. SMCC won last year's game 28-7 and leads the all-time series 42-10.

Airport continues to be led by senior RB Dylan Meiring. The defense struggled last week against Flat Rock and will have a huge task in stopping the Falcon offense this week.

SMCC continues to put up gaudy numbers on the ground while the defense has given up just 38 points in the last four games.

Both teams are headed in opposite directions. SMCC appears poised for a week 7 showdown with Milan. Pick: SMCC 28 Airport 0

Lol more like 42-0. Airport is the worst team in the league this year and while their defense isn't bad, it's still not good.

This is a pretty good rivalry. I think it will be closer than that. Airport may have been looking ahead last week. They have the guns to slow down SMCC. Not sure about offense. Only 1 weapon I see and SMCC has watched a ton of film and will key on Meiring.

SMCC 21 Airport 7

Starters will have to stay in whole game this time.

Airport will play hard but unfortunately they don't have enough talent this year to hang with the upper echelon teams in the league. SMCC 35-7. EM

49-7 SMCC

Meiring is friends with a lot of the CC kids. He played his youth ball at monroe St, John in the CYO. He will look to have a big game. I expect a low scoring game, closer than the records show.

Season isn't over, best I can remember Airport beat Jefferson. The Bears are still in the league, right?

Airports win was a fluke

I will bet anyone that Airport's jv will win their game by a larger margain than SMCC wins the varsity game

I will double that bet that when the JV players become varsity players you still don't win. Congrats on winning at the JV level! Can you post a picture of your trophy?

I see a lot of excitement about JV teams this season. I guess if the Varsity team isn't good, got to root for somebody. Take the success while you can get it.

Bears left the league. Going to play all private school league. LOL.

Hint, Hint.

Soon to be called St. Thomas Jefferson.

I'm pulling for an upset! Most likely won't happen but it's possible. Reality is SMCC shuts them out. But AP now has nothing to play for but pride. The falcons will win, but I'm "preying" for an upset! Lol good luck to both teams!

Since when do CC fans look past an opponent?? Anyone can win on any given night. That's why you play. Upsets happen at every level of sports, Football included. This game is always hard fought. Many thought it would be a blowout last year and it was very close in the first half. CC pulled away late and their defense had to make some key stops. Don't ever mark a W in the win column until the game is played boys. Good Luck to all the Huron League Teams. Focus on the task at hand!

I don't think SMCC is looking past anyone. They have a great program there. Seems like the new coach has his ducks in a row and is just following Jack. You don't fix something that's not broke. As a football fan, and a parent, next week is why I love the game of football. Best 2 teams in the league, totally different styles of play, both have great tradition, with the league title on the line. It's good stuff! I'll be the first to admit it, I'm looking a head, but the Big Reds are on a mission and they know to take it one game at a time. They are focused on GI just like SMCC is focused on AP.
And for the record, why people bash any school for succeeding is beyond me. Milan has been called Ypsi Milan for who knows how long. When schools win in sports, it says something. And for kids who play sports know they have to work hard so being apart of a winning tradition in school carries over to "adult life", and that's ok in my book. Good luck to you SMCC people tonight, I'm pretty sure you will get the win, but I am hoping for an upset, no disrespect ment in anyway. It just helps Milan. Good luck!

Hey 9:44 you guys better win tomorrow cause Airport will own you the next couple years. The talent level is completely dried up at SMCC after this year. At least the new coach has one decent year cause starting next year IT'S OVER. And you won't have Giarmo to bail you out, he knew the time was right.

9:44-when Airports JV players become Varsity players they will be tough to beat!! In 2 years it will be Airport and Huron at the top of the league. Freshmen and Sophomore classes are loaded at Airport!

This guy is so cute. Obviously a teenager. Airport has a good JV team. Good job

SMCC blows Airport out next year easily.

This years SMCC squad is a result of last years coaching staff. Obviously, they are still pretty good. There will be a drop next year. We all have our cycles. Coach Kipf is doing great, but we all know good talent makes a coach look that much better,

Airport will be on the upswing while SMCC will be on the down swing. Sounds like some of the best league parity we have seen in awhile. It will be exciting.

I know my comment is based on what I'm seeing at the JV level, but many times that does give some implications of whats ahead.

8:34am I see your point. Talent has a way of making all coaches look great, there's no contesting that. However, Kipf has a lot of experience as a head coach in the program (Freshman and JV levels) before moving into the Varsity HC job. I don't know nearly as much about the JV coaches but from what I know it's a really new staff. Do I think the talent is lacking on the JV squad too? Yes, like you said, every team has their cycles. I think it'll take a few years before the JV staff gets comfortable and gains traction. 1 year isn't enough to judge an outlook for 2-3 years in the future, but it's a decent projection.

It's good to win at anything no matter what level, so doing good on the J.V. is great. However, please understand that it has nothing to do with what happens on the varsity level. This is mainly because of coaching. Good coaching staffs at the varsity level are the difference especially in a league like the Huron. The amount of time that a good varsity staff puts in compared to the J.V. is 100's of hours more with lifting, film work, practice preparation, game preparation etc. The good programs that put in the most time are usually the most successful unless the amount of talent your playing against is noticeably better than you and in this league with the exception of Flat Rock the last 5-6 years, this is just not the case.

I agree with you. People should not be bashing schools. Guess what , I am hoping for a Milan upset. I do not think that will happen also. I also believe you and I as fans have a rite to look ahead as long as the players and coaches don't. Good Luck! JS

Anonymous said...

I will buy that. I do think there is some correlation between JV and Varsity, but there is a lot more X's and O's that go on in Varsity. I would hope the lifting and practice prep is similar, since that happens at both levels.

Its strange that the 2 best teams in the league, have the 2 worst JV teams so far.
Perhaps Varsity has taken too many kids from throughout the system and weakened the lower levels. This can happen when numbers are low.

SMCC has long lived on the theory of kids playing up there whole athletic career.
So when they do finally play kids their own age and grade, they are much better.
Maybe both JVs are full of Freshman.

Milan is full of freshman. The rest are Sophmores.

How many Freshmen are starting at Airport? it sounds to me like the only true JV team is Huron and the rest of the teams are Freshmen and that's why they're so bad.

Bet your WRONG AGAIN !!!

Over half of the Airport JV starters are freshman. 8 on offense.

pretty impressive if it's true

Anonymous said...

8th graders generally don't lift weights, so when a JV team is mostly freshmen, you won't see the same results as you will after a few years of lifting. Also, schools with a Jr. High program all have kids playing together. CYO has the kids playing against each other, so some of the team building isn't there yet. They will get there. The SMCC program will take care of things. JV coaching staff is doing fine.

SMCC JV dad not worried at all.
