Kimberly vs. Fond du Lac - I just can't pick against Kimberly in the playoffs until someone beats them in the playoffs.

Marshfield vs. Homestead - Homestead presents a far different look for Marshfield than Pulaski's one-man show did last week. The Highlanders have nary been pushed all year and I can't see it happening here. Nice resurgent season for the Tigers though.

Rice Lake vs. West De Pere - Been on WDP all playoffs, but something tells me the defending champs aren't done just yet.

Little Chute vs. St. Croix Central - Experience and a ground-you-into-submission offense.

Stratford vs. Spencer/Columbus Catholic - I'm picking this one to go the opposite way than it did in Week 1. Stratford was missing some guys back in August, but have been on a terror this playoffs. Surprised by S/CC's struggle with Westby.

Grantsburg vs. Iola-Scandinavia - Grantsburg seems to be rolling. And when a D1-caliber guy is rolling in D6 you follow them all the way to Madison.

Lake Country Lutheran vs. St. Mary's Springs - It may seem odd to pick against Springs, but a combination of injuries and playing up a division has somewhat muted Springs' dominance this post-season. At least one radio guy has described their play as having been in a bit of a funk since Schueffner's passing. LCL is about as dynamic as it gets offensively in D5, combine that with a team hungry to finish what they started last year and it may spell a shock loss for the Ledgers if the Lightning can avoid giving up the big plays on defense.

Reedsville vs. Edgar - It's been a nice run for Reedsville but it ends here...likely with a shutout. A bit concerned about Edgar's lack of punch offensively, but that D is so good it may not matter in D7.

Kimberly vs. Fond du Lac (I said it earlier in the season and I will say it again, Fondy imop is the only team in the state that can beat Kimberly and they did that week 1 ending the streak. This is the rematch everyone has been hoping and waiting for and realistically this is the state title game because whoever wins this should win the D1 title next week. Both teams have been on a roll the last ten games and both struggled in Level 2 before getting back on track in level 3. Last time Kimberly lost multiple games in a season was 2012. Even though FOndy is a great team, are they good enough to beat Kimberly twice in one season? I just don't see the Papermakers dropping multiple contests to the same team in any year.

Marshfield vs. Homestead (Marshfield has surprised me in the playoffs and have earned my respect, but how long can their strong play last in D2)

Rice Lake vs. West De Pere (The Phantoms had a bit of a struggle last week against Notre Dame but got the job done. I feel their running game will be the key as will Rice Lake. Whoever stops the run the best will win.)

Little Chute vs. St. Croix Central (A rematch of the 2016 level 4 matchup in which st. Croix won 19-14 I believe. Both these teams are different and have been strong all season. I feel the Mustangs are more well rounded this time around than the Panthers, but the Panthers continue to reach this level. Should be another hard hitting contest, but I see the Mustangs finding a way to get it done.

Stratford vs. Spencer/Columbus Catholic (Don't know much about either team, so I am basing this off what I saw Stratford do to Kewaunee)
Grantsburg vs. Iola-Scandinavia (IMOP no one comes close to Iola in D6 now that Springs moved up to D5)
Lake Country Lutheran vs. St. Mary's Springs (Hard to pick against the Ledgers in any division until a team can actually beat them.)
Reedsville vs. Edgar   (The Cinderella run comes to an end for the Panthers as Edgar should dominate this game.)

For me, this round of the playoffs is often the most difficult in which to pick winners.  Many of the picks come down to virtually a coin-flip.
