Shoreland Lutheran at Racine St. Catherine's - The Angels are gonna be none-too-pleased about letting a 22-point lead slip against Racine Lutheran, especially given how well they contained the Crusaders offense. They take it out on the Pacers here.

Friday, 10/4

Dominican at Catholic Central - On one hand I wonder how Dominican only has two victories on the season. On the other hand I don't. If the Knights can get the ball to their athletes on the perimeter they stand a good shot of outscoring the Hilltoppers. It stands to reason though that the more trench-laden Catholic Central boys will control the LOS and make that difficult on their way to grinding out a victory. I've been completely wrong before however.

Martin Luther at Kenosha St. Joseph - Not the prettiest win over BCC, but the talent gap in Metro Classic is such that even if not at full strength, the Spartans will still have more than enough to beat someone outside the top 3 in the league.

Saturday, 10/5

Racine Lutheran at St. Thomas More - After a day where they struggled finding their customary big plays against Racine St. Catherine's, Tenner and Houston should have a field day here. Question becomes how long do they play? Injuries not helping STM, and I'm not sure why without Boelkow they threw it as much as they did. Line up under center (again, bad teams and the shotgun, a match not made in football heaven), turn and hand it to #13 and #40 and let your kids learn how to be physical. I will say #10 and #12 look like kids to build around as well. Sadly, not much in the way of quality size.

Looks like TM has about 15 freshmen on the roster on wissports.net, and I know a couple of them beyond the ones you mention are quality athletes who played football for other programs coming up. Now, just imagine how much better their outlook would be if most of those kids had been playing in a feeder team like St. Cats has? The mind boggles, truly.

Shoreland Lutheran at Racine St. Catherine's - No doubt about it, these Angels let last week get away from them. That's not likely to happen again. You learn different lessons from high school football depending on where you play and who you play for, and what RSC will take away from that one is an understanding that you need to finish and play all four quarters.

Friday, 10/4

Dominican at Catholic Central - Classic tale of two entirely different philosophies and talent bases here. I'll show my bias and pick the club that I think is more physical.

Martin Luther at Kenosha St. Joseph's - It'll be interesting to see if KSJ can make this one more of a game, but as DB has already noted, right now this is a league of haves and have-nots. KSJ sits firmly between those two groups this year; they'll be that one school that beats everyone they're supposed to while also losing to everyone you'd expect them to.

Saturday, 10/5

Racine Lutheran at St. Thomas More - Honestly, I hope to see better football from TM and better athletes out for the sport. They're featuring photos of the football team on their recruiting materials this year which is kind of a head-scratcher but maybe can get a few boys in the door. If the freshman class noted above can stick together, they have a chance to at least be competitive in three or even two years, but they still won't have the size or top-end speed and skill that you see from the teams that dominate this league. The Purple Lutherans don't have great size either, but they have the latter two in spades.

They need to get an line coach over there pronto. Way too leaky of a unit (against Dominican of all teams) given a couple of those guys have size and have played multiple years.

There was one play in the Dominican game where #10 went up and over a defensive back for a great 20-yard catch that made me go "all hope is not lost."

I think they fumbled a handoff next play...*sigh*...so it goes for landlocked south suburban HS football.

Shoreland Lutheran at Racine St. Catherine's - I feel for Shoreland here cause they now get a pissed off St. Cats team, but that's just how things go sometimes. St. Cats with a big win and they should be able to actually finish what they started this time. 

Friday, 10/4

Dominican at Catholic Central - BCC is performing better than Dominican at this point and is a little more physical as well. They should be able to do just enough to pick up the win here. 

Martin Luther
at Kenosha St. Joseph's - Should be an interesting game, but can St. Joseph's do enough to keep Luther in check. I say no and Martin Luther will eventually pull away and pick up the win. 

Saturday, 10/5

Racine Lutheran at St. Thomas More - RL with a huge comeback win last week, but they shouldn't have to worry about anything like that this week. RL will keep on cruising along and get an easy win here.

Shoreland Lutheran at Racine St. Catherine's: SL could move the ball at times against KSJ but repeatedly shot themselves in the foot with turnovers and negative yardage plays near the end zone. Now here comes RSC more than slightly ticked off about blowing a 22 point lead in a OT loss to RaLu. This will get ugly.

Friday, 10/4

Dominican at Catholic Central: As much as I see Dominican being the favorite here, I believe that BCC has been more of a consistent team so far this year.

Martin Luther at Kenosha St. Joseph's: KSJ made several self inflicted mistakes against Shoreland that might have prevented the scoreline from being worse for the Pacers on Homecoming. You can't shoot yourselves in the foot especially against teams like ML and expect to have a shot here.

Saturday, 10/5

Racine Lutheran at St. Thomas More: The first stringers shouldn't have to play more than a half here for RaLu.

Well the line coach at Thomas More was a Line coach at St Francis under Coach Starver so he obviously knows how to coach these kids up. Sometimes it takes a bit for offensive blocking schemes to catch on with a new group. They do have the right guy for the job, it will just a little time.

The assistants at TM look like a higher quality bunch this year, and obviously Litscher is a fantastic guy in the building. If those guys all stick around and they keep getting 15+ freshmen out (and minimize exposing them to injury in meaningful varsity action) they'll eventually be competitive at least. What's the take on this head coach though? What exactly does he bring to the table from a football perspective?
