I'll be out of town this weekend, so I'll start it early and get my picks in before Friday.

Standings after Week 4 (calculated kind of quickly; if anything's off note what the correct record is and I'll adjust)

1. wihsfootball 24-5, .828 (missed Week 1)
2. badgerfan15 33-7, .825
3. amped0808 23-6, .793 (missed Week 1)
4. whfan202 31-9, .775
5. bcushing 27-8, .771 (only picked the C-south in Week 1)
6. footballtime59 22-7, .759 (missed Week 1)
T7. importfromil 30-10, .750
T7. thecrackerjack 30-10, .750
T8. ash22themagnificent 19-10, .655 (missed Week 1)

BTW, footballtime59 went a perfect 9-0 last week. We're now in conference play, so by division the games are ...

C-South
New Glarus-Monticello (1-3) at Cambridge (3-1)
Waterloo (4-0) at Wisconsin Heights (2-2)
Belleville (2-2) at Marshall (4-0)

C-North
Lake Mills (1-3) at Lakeside Lutheran (2-2) [The Slider Bowl]
Poynette (4-0) at Luther Prep (1-3)
Lodi (3-1) at Columbus (4-0)
I'm not saying some things the WIAA does are wrong, ... I'm just saying, "I find it weird."

Just getting warmed up boys.

I'm taking...

C-South
New Glarus-Monticello (1-3) at Cambridge (3-1)
Waterloo (4-0) at Wisconsin Heights (2-2)
Belleville (2-2) at Marshall (4-0)- this could be a rough one for Belleville, Marshall gets revenge for the upset in the last week of last season.

C-North
Lake Mills (1-3) at Lakeside Lutheran (2-2) [The Slider Bowl]
Poynette (4-0) at Luther Prep (1-3)
Lodi (3-1) at Columbus (4-0)- that's going to be a good game

5 of these games are pretty easy; I don't think it's hard to pick the difficult one.

New Glarus-Monticello at Cambridge. Unless there's injuries we don't know about, I don't expect the Bluejays to lay another egg against the Glarner Knights. Cambridge by 21.

Waterloo at Wisconsin Heights. The Pirates need a relatively easy game; they get it against the Vanguards. Waterloo by 28.

Belleville at Marshall. At least the Wildcats can cherish last year's victory, because the Cardinals will be out for all kinds of revenge here. Marshall by 49.

Lake Mills at Lakeside Lutheran. The L-Cats look like a mess; not a good thing against a Warriors team that's got a 2-headed running attack rolling. Lakeside by 31.

Poynette at Luther Prep. On paper, the Pumas should roll - but the Phoenix have shown they can hang with most teams. Plus, it seems like the visitors are still trying to put together 4 complete quarters in a game - especially early on. Poynette by 20.

Lodi at Columbus. There's 3 games that will likely decide the C-North champion; this is the first. I really, really want to take Columbus, especially at home - but then I realize that the Cardinals haven't beaten Lodi since 2004, and that was (per wissports) on the road. At home, it's been even longer - maybe the late 90s? Throw in that the hosts have been lightly tested so far, while the visitors have had a much stiffer schedule, and there's all kinds of reasons to take the Blue Devils here. If Lodi had a solid passing game, I'd go with them - but it doesn't, and I think the Cards defense may well handle the Lodi running game. Don't be surprised if I flip-flop on this during the week, but right now I'm saying Cardinals by 7.

Finally this is where things get interesting....

NGM at Cambridge- From what I have heard Cambridge has some kids out...little to much partying or something like that. But then again they are the better team even with these kids out. NGM beat a bad Westfield team by only one point. Cambridge still has Owens so look to see him run like he's never ran before. Cambridge by 14.

Waterloo at WH- I have heard that Lincks may be back by the time they play Marshall. But for now him being out with the injury should not affect Waterloo beating Heights. Their oline will help out the run game and let's see if Gallitz can get the pass game working. Either way Heights won't be able to pull this one off. Loo by 21

Belleville at Marshall- A lot of people are saying Belleville can't hang in this one. I am saying they can depending on the weather. If it is rainy then no their pass game won't work on Marshall. But if Hayes can pull together a few nice drives in the air then this could be close for a while. Marshall needs to get their run game going early so they don't have to depend on throwing the ball to much. Marshall by 21

Lake Mills at Lakeside Lutheran- LL is going to demolish Lake Mills. They are starting to run the ball with authority and will continue that this week. LL by 28

Poynette at Luther Prep- Poynette is good really good like I have said in previous weeks. Last week Prep struggled and the struggle will lead into this week. Poynette can run the ball and put it in the air. Their backs are fast and big. Pumas by 21

Lodi at Columbus- GAME OF THE WEEK!!!!! This game along with when these two teams play Lodi will be the deciding factor on who is the conference champ this year. Lodi, Columbus, and Poynette all have the athletes and talent to take the crown. I think Columbus has the better overall team than Lodi. Herschleb is just a work horse and their fullback is good too. They may have had a little easier competition leading to this game but it won't matter come Friday. CBUS by 14.

My picks:

Cambridge - I haven't heard who may or may not be playing for Cambridge, so this could be a blowout win for Cambridge or a very close, competitive game. I'm really unsure how this game will play out, but I'll take the Blue Jays here.

Waterloo - Waterloo might not have to pass the ball all game. Pirates by 35.

Marshall - Belleville surprised me by going 2-1 during the first 3 weeks with a total spread of 6 points, but last week's game against Poynette showed me what I had been expecting. A team that can run the ball well will be able to put up points on the Wildcats all year. The turnover bug showed itself too, with 4 picks being thrown. I see Marshall scoring 5-6 rushing touchdown's this game. I picture a score around 41-14 in favor of Marshall.

Lakeside Lutheran - This is a rivalry game, so anything goes. I think LL is the stronger team between two mediocre teams this year. LL by 14.

Poynette - Poynette showed how to stop a pass-dependent team last week: solid secondary play (the aforementioned 4 picks). Poynette will be able to score on the ground, which will force LP to throw the ball in the 2nd half for sure. I think the Pumas will shut down the passing game at that point and will take this one by 21.

Columbus - This game features 2 of the 3 top teams (the other being Poynette) from either conference facing off against each other. This game could really go either way. Since I'm really not sure how the teams match up player-by-player, I'll take Columbus by 6 at home.

I love conference play and there's some GREAT games this week.

New Glarus at Cambridge - Cambridge, depending on who's out, gets the nod. However, if it's impact guys that are out, NGM could steal this one on the road. Right now, the Blue Jays get the benefit of the doubt.

Waterloo at Wisconsin Heights - I love Heights, it's even in the name, but on paper this looks like it could get ugly. Heights has a lot of trouble stopping the run, and Loo can pass if they have to. I say it's competitive for a bit, but it won't be by the end of it.

Belleville at Marshall - No upset this time by Belleville. Marshall rolls.

Poynette at Luther Prep - Has the makings of a blowout, but LP has shown signs of life. That's a good thing for the Phoenix, at least in the future, but right now, they're going to lose this one to the Pumas by around 21 or so.

Lake Mills "at" Lakeside - Lake Mills owes LL sliders again this year.

Lodi at Columbus - Game of the Week, and it's not close. Columbus has shown some real grit and runs the ball as well as any team in the North. Lodi's specialty is also running the ball and defense. I just think across the board, Columbus has a slight edge. Depth and who controls in the trenches is the deciding factor, if you ask me. I think Columbus will do that and top Lodi at home to get a MASSIVE conference win.

Lakeside by 21, lake mills is wounded from injuries and lakeside is going to avenge their lost last year.

Poynette by 28, prep is improving and their qb is really good but the pumas are gonna roll them.

Columbus by 7, this could be the game of the year in the Capitol conference! And a instant classic for Columbus fans, that reminds them of the good ole days. Lodi isn't the lodi they usually are. Columbus like everybody else in the Capitol north is suck and tired of lodi winning it, and their conference streak will come to an end tomorrow night with a lost to Columbus.


New garlus by 14, this is another good game, that will help decide the Capitol south champion. New garlus has played a way tougher schedule then Cambridge and Cambridge hasn't played the greatest the last 2 weeks. I heard a rumor that josh Owens is out? What's the truth to that?

Waterloo by 28, lincks should be back soon, and they shouldn't need him this week again. Heights just has no size and numbers. Waterloo could look to throw the ball more tomorrow night.

Marshall by 28, they will look to avenge last years lost to Belleville. Maybe Ryan Hayes will make this game interesting, but it is Marshall's homecoming.

I remember years ago, the St. Louis Blues picked up Simon Gamache on waivers; almost immediately after the waiver claim, a "Thetford Mines" something or another shows up on Blues discussion boards and starts talking about how good Gamache is and how fans are going to be thrilled to have scooped up such a talented player for free, and so on. He plays a few games on the top two lines, then gets moved to the 3rd line - and almost immediately after the move down, "Thetford Mines" shows back up asking why Gamache isn't getting more playing time and talking about how he's not that effective playing only a handful of minutes a night with less-skilled guys, and how the fans need to get mad at the coaches that Gamache isn't getting used properly. Probably a week later, he gets put on the 4th line and the same poster shows up and bitterly complains about how Gamache isn't being used properly, and "if that's all the better they can treat him, no wonder the team sucks - just let him go so someone else can use him properly." About a week and change after that, Gamache gets waived and "Thetford Mines" never shows up again.

Gamache's hometown? Thetford Mines, QC.
