Huron League Thoughts and Questions

That SMCC score didn't surprise me.

Is everything okay over at Milan?

What happen to Riverview?

I hope Huron never plays Summit Academy again.

I think I won a hundy on the Grosse Ile/Bradford Academy game.

Three wins is better than the last few seasons for more than one Huron League team.

I don't think Airport caught many breaks this year.

I think SMCC will make another solid run in the playoffs.

It looks like Huron may sneak in the playoffs at 5-4 and will most likely play at Chelsea.

I anticipate SMCC hosting Grass Lake in the Division 6 Pre district.

Look for Riverview playing at Trenton in the Division 3 Pre district.

Look for Milan to travel to River Rouge in Division 4 Pre district play.

I wasn't too far off on my predictions this season.

I believe I finished 34-10 in picking Huron League games this year.

Looks like the UM defense played well this week, they didn't give up a point.

Spartans will!

Still Lions free.

When will we know if Huron squeezed by or not? If they do make it into the playoffs; I truly hope Kalby goes back to last year and watches his play calling and how his offense and defense were ran. He could turn around and make another run thru the playoffs but they all gotta work very hard if they do get in.

Lol always gotta take a shot at Michigan, it's all good you got the bragging rights after the craziest play I've ever seen. Why would Huron travel to Chelsea when Allen Park and Trenton are much closer? I thought they keep teams as close to home as possible in the district draw. Wouldn't an Allen Park Trenton Riverview Huron district make more sense? EM

I knew you couldn't resist about Michigan/Michigan State! Trying to bait me again huh? I will say this-it only took the Spartans 8 games to finally play a great quarter of football.-pussboy

I see Riverview, Allen Park, Trenton and Romulus in that district with Huron headed west. Just a hunch.

Snooze has Milan playing Pontiac Notre Dame Prep right off the bat!

many times its not possible to keep all the teams that are close to each other geographically in the same district. often times 1 or 2 of the teams get pulled elsewhere to make a district of 4.

Trenton, Huron, Chelsea, Romulus, Riverview, Allen Park, Redford, Warren. All 8 of these teams would make sense to be in the same district. Just depends on how the committee feels that day when they choose what pegs go with what pegs.

Milan is going through much adversity, but still played very well against a very talented Ann Arbor Huron

So what do you mean by what is going on in Milan? We are preparing for they play offs.

If forget Romulus was D3 bn. I figured they would keep all the Downriver schools together. I guess we'll find out in a few hours. EM

If Snooze is correct, which I don't think it's totally correct, Country Day has to be the favorite. For Milan they would most likely have the 2 toughest matches in District. More adversity. But I have all the faith in the Big Reds. I know AA Huron is not a team with a winning record, but they did have some good athletes.
If NB Huron gets in, that's good for the league. 4 teams is good. I believe MHSAA should change to a 5 Game must win to be in. It would give more schools a chance, generate more money. Just my opinion. Good luck to all the Huron teams in the playoffs.

I'm not surprised that SMCC lost to Lansing Catholic. But what I am totally surprised about is that CC did not have a rushing touchdown. When was the last time that happened? There was absolutely no push by the offensive line in the second half.

Pretty sure it happened week 2 against riverview lol.

10 guys in the box all night. O-line was blocking at least 2 people on every play.Kind of hard to do. But we still insisted on slamming into that brick wall all night. I, myself, would have tried something a bit different, but I'm not the coach.

Where was the Rouge/Riverview game played?

#9 Dad, I think it could get shaky with that many teams in the playoffs. The 32-team per division playoff ensures that every 6-3 team makes it and then fills up the rest of the bracket with the best 5-4 teams (based on PP). If you expand it to 5-4 teams getting an automatic bid to playoffs, you complicate things. In order to fill up the bracket, you would most likely have to pull in teams 4-5 records, which I'd argue don't belong in the playoffs. Even then the most likely result is a playoff with first round byes for the top teams. I also don't agree with that, but that's just me.

I'm all about getting more teams a shot in the playoffs, especially 5-4 teams, but when you start bringing in teams to the playoffs that have losing records, which would almost certainly happen, it seems wrong.

It was played at Rouge
Riverview Dad

The Rouge/Riverview game was in Rouge. The field is in horrible shape!

Sorry I missed the Riverview CC game. How did CC score in that game?

Huron has zero chance to beat Trenton. I know no one in here believes there are good teams outside the Huron, but Trenton is very good and very physical. Trenton by at least 21 points

Anonymous said...

I agree with you. But it does not have to be a bring in a 4-5 team, at that point byes should be awarded if it's an odd bracket. Just my opinion. I know 32 teams in every division is a lot. Having 8 divisions is a lot too.

no 4-5 team will ever make playoffs #9Dad in this current system.

its a pretty darn good system for high school playoffs. No complaints..dont know how they configure the points. this system is just as good as the nfl's as far as fairness. i still think the college playoff system should be like the nfl's. top six(6) should play for National championship ONLY. 1 & 2 get byes, 3-6 play. Winner take all. then 7 play 8 for a bowl, 9 play 10 for a bowl, 11 play 12 for a bowl etc...1-6 play for Ntl Champ Bowl an no other.

I'm sure this will not go over well, but it seems to me that the outcome of the SMCC-LCC game really showed how weak our league was. I am a HL fan all the way, but when SMCC is beating many teams in the league by 30, 35, even 40 points, then gets beat themselves by 25 points. How bad is the rest of the league?

We will see this weekend if any of them can hold their own. On paper it just doesn't add up. Hopefully I am proven wrong.

Good Luck

I do not agree with you at all. There are times when teams just don't play as good. SMCC is a very good team. RV is a very good team. Milan is a very good team. All 3 played each other look what happened. Match ups are key and it showed. RV played SMCC tough, and maybe should have won that game. Milan spanked RV, SMCC spanked Milan. The Huron league is a very tough league. The big 3 in the league go play in any league and most likely have an average or above average season. I think our big 3 could have made the playoffs no matter what league they were in. The bottom teams might have done just as well in other leagues. My opinion we are a strong league. Half of the league made the playoffs. That's pretty darn good if you ask me.

Remember LCC is ranked 5th in D5 and I think they have a shot @ the State title. They are that good.

It showed nothing of the sort. A good team with a 6'7"D1 (BigG1) QB played as they should have (although we didn't see it until the 2nd half of the game). LCC is capable of beating a lot of good teams in many leagues. They will compete for another State Championship in D5. We have 4 teams in the playoffs. If we have 2 left going to Regionals, it speaks highly of the league. Just because one team has a loss to a potential State Champion does lessen the whole league. That's like saying Bama now sucks and so does the SEC. Think about it. Roll Tide.

To me its only a few good teams in the HL. Smcc then Milan and....all the rest. Milan has only two districts no regionals. At Huron has a district and regional. Gross ile might have a district and regional. Idk bout airport. Smcc 9 districts 8 regional 4 semi wins 1State champ since 2000
