AGAIN, It's the beginning of a new season, so let's get this forum talking about it and stop being so lame.

I am wondering what everyone thinks about the upcoming season, where everyone thinks the teams will end up at the end of the season, and teams/players to watch. Please feel free to comment and express your opinions. We need to get this forum talking again. Controversy and trash talking are encouraged!!!!!

Here are my preseason predictions:

1. Stoughton - Key players - McGlynn, Slaby
2. Monona Grove - Key players - Stinson, Riley
3. Oregon - Key player - Stuff
4. Monroe - Key players - Latimer, Tordoff
5. Edgewood - Key players - Haefer, Noyce
6. Fort Atkinson - Key players - Gerds, Jones
7. Milton - Key player - Westrick

1 - Stoughton - will lose 1-2 games but still be at the top. McGlynn easily the POY
2 - Monona Grove - even with lose of Nelson will still be a contender
3 - Edgewood - new recruiting class will keep them near the top
4 - Fort Atkinson - could easily switch Edgewood and Fort around. Gerds, Shoup and Jones looking strong in preseason
5 - Monroe - Is the Tordoff blood line almost dried up - I feel like there has been Tordoff playing for decades
6 - Oregon
7 - Milton - will self-destruct in February like the usually do.

Overall - conference will pretty interesting to watch. Maybe not as strong as years past, but like in football, all conference games should at least be entertaining and close.

After a few weeks into the 14-15 season the conference is a little weaker than I though it would be. Traditionally 2 competitive teams in Monroe and Edgewood are not looking too good. With both having at least three losses, it is not looking like very promising. They do both have experienced coaches in Zwettler and Murphy so I do expect them to reach .500.

Fort, MG, and Stoughton look like the cream of the crop in the conference. They are all playing well with the experienced scorers leading the way. With an undefeated record, we will see what Fort is made of when they go up against the state's favorite Mount Horeb. Stoughton and MG should pull games out this Saturday against Edgewood and Monroe, but these games will see how competitive the conference will be this year.

Saturday Nights Pick Em Games

Mount Horeb vs Fort

Milton self-destructing is an understatement. Have they ever been a conference contender?

Tordoff seem like he could be a scorer like his brothers, but with an inexperience team we will see what kind of "Tordoff-Magic" he has.

McGlynn is the real deal!!! The only way I see any team beating Stoughton is if he gets in major foul trouble.

What a great weekend in the Badger South!!! Great games that make the conference seem like a competitive one for the remainder of the seasaon.

Let's start with Stoughton over Monroe 62-60. Scoring led by Graffin, Tommy McGlynn, and Krumholz for Stoughton and Ford, Latimer, and Tordoff for Monroe. I thought Monroe did a great job limiting Nick McGlynn's touches and making the rest of Stoughton's team beat them. Stoughton does have a deep team, but I think this may be the recipe to beating Stoughton for the rest of the Badger South.

MG over Edgewood, 48-35. This game was competitive in the first half, but a third quarter surge, O'Connell and the rest of MG busted the game open. This was a slow pace game, like Edgewood is accustom to playing, but MG just proved to be too much. It was a full team effort for MG with 8 guys scoring. Edgewood is going to have to find some leadership if want to avoid being whipping boy for the rest of the conference.

Oregon over Milton, 57-49. This was a good game and quality win for Oregon on the road at Milton. Led by Morhoff and Soule with 18 and 19 points respectively, the Panthers played a complete game with ample scoring in the second half. Milton had a lot of guys score and the deep bench may be the calling card for them this year. The next conference game for Oregon against Fort will tell a lot about what kind of team the Panthers are this season.

Lastly and probably most exciting, Mt Horeb over Fort, 57-47 in triple OT. I only saw the highlights of this game, but the atmosphere looked like a state tournament game. Of course, Recknor and Meylor led the scoring effort for Mt Horeb while Jones led Fort. Fort seemed like they played a great game until the 4th quarter when they could not close the game out. Against tough teams in the Badger South like Stoughton and MG, Fort must learn to finish games or they will find themselves with a lot of close losses in conference.

I am hoping all conference games are as competitive as this weekends games!
