Huron @ Milan

MIlan (3-1) is coming off of a 50-15 win over Jefferson while Huron (2-2) is coming off of a home loss to SMCC 27-7. Huron won last season's game 28-14, but Milan leads the all-time series 19-2.

Milan has showed both their offensive and defensive fire power lately. The offense is led by juniors Demetrius Barnes and Trace Lineman. The two have combined for 844 yards and 8 TD's on the ground through four games. The defense is giving up just 12 points per game and is led by seniors Cortez Gray and Quintell Moore.

Huron has dropped two straight and desperately needs a win. The Chiefs are led by Matt Hartwick who has run and thrown for over 800 yards and has accounted for 8 TD's. Defensively the Chiefs have struggled lately. The defense is led by junior LB Nik Becker.

This is a make or break game for Huron. They are pretty much eliminated from the league title chase, but still have a shot at the playoffs. Milan can afford a slip up here and still win at least a share of a league title by winning out. This could be a great game, but it depends which Huron team decides to show up. Pick: Milan 27 Huron 17

Two weeks ago I would've called this game a toss up. But after struggling against GI and SMCC, I have a hard time seeing Huron's defense slow down Milan's offense. Milan by 2 TDs. EM

Probably the most intriguing game of the year...just ahead of SMCC v Huron last week. This is an absolutely huge game for Huron. Dropping two in a row is tough. Add in a trip to Milan after that and you're looking at a must-win situation. If they lose this game, I think they'll also drop to Riverview. I'm predicting Huron to give it everything they've got, but in the end I think Milan will pull away in the 4th.

33 - 24 Milan wins

Milan has a lot of weapons. Tough to watch enough film and focus on them all. Huron will not be able to contain Milan's running game. Milan's defense is vulnerable and Huron QB can rack up a few points. But not enough against that Milan offense.

Milan 42- Huron 28

Huron is weak this year, Milan by 20+

This is a scary match up for me. Huron will not be able to just run the ball. They will have to use the pass to set up the run. If Milan shuts down the pass, they win with out a doubt. I don't think Huron can stop Milan on offense so they will have to match them score for score. Turn overs will be huge in this game. I do think Milan wins, but like I said before this match up is bad for Milan. Going to be close till the 4th quarter. Good luck to both teams.

Good points #9 Dad. I think it's like you said, the key match-up will be Huron's passing vs. Milan's passing defense. I also don't see Huron stopping Milan's offense. If Huron can't find their passing game, it's going to be a LONG game for them.

You must have been sitting on Huron's visitor side if you had a hard time seeing! ROTFLMAO

Milan will win by three touchdowns. This isn't the game of the week.

Milan is not taking Huron lightly. They know how good they are and are not over looking this team. Huron overlooked a decent team and lost to a really good team. That happens to many during the course of the year. Milan played very poorly last week and it showed. They have something to prove and this is the next step in beating a good Huron squad.

Another comment about film.

Smcc is watching film right now. Looking at stats, evaluating runs vs passes, runners routes, receivers routes, etc. The scouts have Ipads with apps on them that keep track of all this. Basketball too.


Trust Me.

I don't think you can win 50-15 and play *very* poorly, but it is nice to run away with a game and still have things you can improve upon. If I'm not mistaken, Jefferson scored both touchdowns and their 2-point conversion through the air on that corner pattern. I thought the Bears would hammer Milan with that throughout the game, but it was either shut down or not called the rest of the way.

I agree with #9 Dad. Milan has had occasional trouble defending the pass, but aside from a missed tackle resulting in a long catch-and-run touchdown in Marshall, it hasn't hurt them much. I expect Huron to have a balanced attack overall but to provide the biggest test for the Big Reds' passing D.

We are going to kill Huron. Huron had big mean lineman last year now they don't. They won't be able to stop our 3 headed monster. Milan 48- Huron 7

No one from Milan would write that.

Does Huron need some extra motivation??? lol

I wondered earlier this week which one would be picked. All I could guess is Milan-Huron has an overall record of 5-3, while SMCC-GI has an overall record of 6-2. Both should be good games, but I think FR-Airport will be the closest game.

Haha I see what you did there. EM

We really should NOT use words like kill and destroy. After all it is only a game. I hope a child posted this and not a parent.

At least the game isn't at Huron so we don't have to hear about their horrible visitor stands.
