But, it's still early and so there's plenty of time for someone to "climb from the basement" - or "drop from the penthouse."

NOTE: Lodi/Dells is a Thursday night game, so that pick needs to be registered before 7:00pm Thursday night.

Lodi at Wisconsin Dells - no reason to think the Blue Devils will struggle against the Chiefs, though Dells went to the air in Week 1 for 231 total yards so that might give the Lodi defense fits. Not sure if Kuehn just came out early for Lodi, not sure if Rohling (17-24-215, 1 TD) was in a semi-platoon for Dells ... but whatever, it won't change the result. Blue Devils by 28.

Parkview at Belleville - No real strong feelings for me on this one. The Vikings beat a weak Heights team at home, Belleville got smacked on the road by a stout Deerfield squad. Until the visitors show they're for real, I'll take the home team. Wildcats by 6.

Deerfield at Cambridge - it is extremely rare that you give up 55-393 on the ground and a punt return for a TD and still win, but that's exactly what Cambridge did last week as it survived Clinton. I'll say it put enough of a scare in them that they don't take the Demons lightly - but I think it's a pick 'em game. Bluejays by 4.

New Glarus/Monticello at Darlington - the Glarner Knights got edged by Edgerton, and Darlington is Darlington. Cardinals by 21.

Marshall at Jefferson - someone's going to start the season 0-2 for the first time in a long time. I can stretch to make an argument that Jefferson could have won last week; I have no idea how Marshall would have beaten Lake Mills. Eagles by 20.

Waterloo at Luther Prep - yeah, the Pirates shut out Pardeeville (who's about as big) at home. Prep knocked off a larger Jefferson squad ... on the road, and is surely riding a wave of confidence after that one. Phoenix by 10.

Boscobel at Wisconsin Heights - in past years, this would have been a winnable game for the Vanguards. However, Boscobel isn't entirely the pushover it's been for years. Look for Tommy Monroe to run for a ton of yards again this week. Bulldogs by 24.

Poynette at Adams-Friendship - the Pumas struggled mightily before finally prevailing over Westfield in a sloppy game. A-F is a much better team than Westfield; there won't be a similarly slow start. Green Devils by 32.

Whitewater at Columbus - it'll be "revenge" for Scott Hilber, who lost his 1st home game at Columbus vs. the Whippets two years ago. The only hope Whitewater has is to go to the air like it did in 2013, and I don't see the visitors going 12-14-230 and getting a punt return for a TD in the same game. If Columbus gets the triple option going, this could get ugly. Cardinals by 25.

Edgerton at Lake Mills - it'll be Micah Rudd (30-423, 7 TDs in Week 1) vs. Collin Moen (18-25-274, 3 TDs passing; 14-87, 1 TD rushing). No, Rudd probably won't run for 423 again - but I think New Glarus/Monticello is a better team than Lake Mills. Don't be surprised if these two teams combine for over 75 points. Crimson Tide by 18.

Lakeside Lutheran at McFarland - I'm more of a believer in the Warriors after last week's win, but I still don't think they're in the top-2 in the C-North. The Spartans, ... this could be a long, long year. Warriors by 28.

You skipped the Parkview @ Belleville game in your picks.

Lodi at dells- the only way Wisconsin dells wins is if Lodi's bus breaks down. Lodi by 42
Deerfield at Cambridge- it's no secret that Cambridge is a different team without josh Owens, this is a big rivalry game between these towns and it will be a good one. Cambridge by 7
NGM at darlington- I like how new garlus's coach schedules the toughest non conference games by far out of anybody in the Capitol south. NGM may start out 0 and 2, but they still can win the south and this could be like the 2014 season for them. Darlington by 28
Marshall at Jefferson- Jefferson is going through a rebuilding year again and isn't as good as they have been in the past. Marshall got lucky last year and beat them, Jefferson will avenge that lost.jefferson by 14
Waterloo at prep- prep gave loo a huge scare last year and is a lot better this year. Prep has one of the best qb's in the area and he had a huge game last year against loo. Waterloo will need to have really good play in their secondary if they want to win this game. Prep by 14
Boscobel at Wisconsin heights- heights will play hard but it's not gonna be enough- boscobel by 28
Poynette at Adams-friendship- poynettes a young team, and friendship is good. I expect friendship to take it to them for all the whoopings they have took from them in the past. Green Devils by 28
Whitewater at Columbus- Columbus will run all over them, I can't see whitewater pulling this one out. Columbus by 28
Edgerton at lake mills- Collin moen was looking like turner moen last week. And Edgerton's Micah Rudd could be the next next ricky Williams. lakemills isn't as good as new garlus but they have an explosive offense. Edgerton by 14
Lakeside at McFarland- I think lakeside can make the playoffs, and they have a very good running back who everybody will be talking about by the end of the year. Lakeside by 21
Parkview at Belleville- this will be a close game, and could go either way. The team with less turnovers will win- Belleville by 7

Lodi at WI Dells- Lodi by 35, Giving a result shouldn't even be a requirement for this meeting.
Parkview at Belleville- Belleville by 10
New Glarus at Darlington- Darling ton by 14, two solid teams. Would be an exciting game to watch Friday night.
Marshall at Jefferson- Jefferson by 7, both took unexpected L's last week. I see the home team bouncing back and winning this one though.
Waterloo at Prep- Prep by 17, Waterloo struggled last year against the pass, against the same talented Phoenix team who returns a lot of the same starters. The home opener and the Phoenix offense will be too much for the Pirates in this game.
Boscobel at WI Heights- Boscobel by 14, the tough start of the season continues for the Vanguards. Cheering for them though, hard not to feel bad for these kids.
Poynette at AF- Friendship by 7, Joe Duty from Friendship is a great competitor, and after struggling last week against Westfield I have to take the Green Devil's.
Whitewater at Columbus- Columbus by 21, Cardinals are headed in the right direction and I think they improve to 2-0 when everything is said and done Friday.
Edgerton at Lake Mills- Edgerton by 7, toughest one to decide this week for me. Both teams were impressive in week 1, each beating quality teams. I believe both offenses will be rolling, but in the end Edgerton makes a big play (on either side of the ball) late in the game to lock up the win.
Lakeside at McFarland- Lakeside by 17, Lakeside beat a quality opponent last week and I can honestly say I dont know much about McFarland, but seeing that Lodi had no problem last week I have to take the Warriors.

Looking forward to this weeks games!

Realized right after I posted picks that I forgot the Deerfield Cambridge game.
Deerfield at Cambridge- Cambridge by 10, as we saw last week Cambridge has enough talent without Owens to beat quality opponents. I believe Clinton is a better team than Deerfield so I cant see the Blue Jays losing even if it may have a bum wing for 3 games.

Lodi at Wisconsin Dells- Lodi with a running clock. They are as good as they were last year even without Logan Furness.

Parkview at Belleville- Belleville lost to a pretty tough Deerfield team and Parkview beat a poor Height team. I am taking the South team in this Belleville by 7.

Deerfield at Cambridge- even without Owens they pulled out the win. Deerfield may give them a challenge but Caleb Martin and Deforest both stepped up big last week. If those two can do the same they shouldn't have an issue Friday night. Cambridge by 14.

NGM at Darlington- I really want NGM to win this and then having this tough schedule early on before conference is going to pay out this year. But I'm going to take Darlington by 10.

Marshall at Jefferson- I was surprised with the loss to Prep but I still think Jefferson is a great team. I saw the height and weight for #40 and that kid is a tank. Marshall is down this year they passed the ball around 30 times last week and they run the triple option. Going to be close for a while but Jefferson is going to earn their first win of the year at home. Eagles by 14.

Waterloo at Luther Prep- this will be a really close game with explosive offenses. The lefty from Prep is a stud but so is Gallitz. It's going to come down to what team can get pressure on the qb. I think the stud Qb from Prep will be the difference maker and they win by 14.

Boscobel at Wisconsin Heights- Boscobel will bump Heights to an 0-2 record after this week. Boscobel by 21.

Poynette at Adams-Friendship- Poynette showed they weren't the same team from a year ago and from what I have seen in recent posts Friendship isn't to bad. With the Pumas just skipping past Westfield I like Adams/Friendship at home by 21.

Whitewater at Columbus- beating the Cards at home is a tough task. They normally have a big line and a talented running back. Cards by 14.

Edgerton at Lake Mills- I'm really liking Lake Mills this year Moen is looking like his brother but maybe a little better. That should get Edgerton's attention. They do have a talented back to fire back at LM but I'm going to take Lake Mills in a close game by 7.

Lakeside Lutheran at McFarland- Lakeside has one of the best backs in the north and proved last week they could fight for the top of the conference LL by 21.
