No major changes; I moved from T-7 to 5th, footballtime slips to 8th as thecrackerjack didn't make picks. No one went perfect, everyone missed either Poynette-Columbus or Luther Prep-Lake Mills (or in a couple cases, both). badgerfan15 remains the leader, amped0808 and wishfootball continue to hold hands in a tie.


Week 7 Games:

-- Waterloo (2-0, 6-0) at New Glarus/Monticello (0-2, 1-5)
-- Wisconsin Heights (0-2, 1-5) at Belleville (0-2, 2-4)
-- Marshall (2-0, 6-0) at Cambridge (2-0, 5-1)
-- Poynette (2-0, 6-0) at Lakeside Lutheran (1-1, 3-3)
-- Luther Prep (0-2, 1-5) at Columbus (0-2, 4-2)
-- Lake Mills (1-1, 2-4) at Lodi (2-0, 5-1)


Playoff implications as of Week 6:

Clinches playoff spot with a win: Waterloo, Poynette, Marshall, Cambridge, Lodi
-- Waterloo, Poynette and Marshall likely have playoff spots clinched already with 6 overall wins.

Eliminated with a loss: New Glarus/Monticello, Wisconsin Heights, Belleville, Luther Prep
-- Columbus isn't de facto eliminated with a loss, as wins in the final 2 games get the Cardinals to 6-3 overall and that likely earns an at-large spot.

Wishing it was Friday already.....here's my picks!


Waterloo at New Glarus/Monticello- last week NG was in the game with Marshall going into half only being down by 8. They stopped Marshall from really getting anything going on th ground but got killed in the pass game. This game being at their home field they could upset Waterloo if they can stop the run. If they can't then Waterloo will run all over them. I'm going with the better team here and the Pirates win by 7.


Wisconsin Heights at Belleville- well Belleville kept it close with Waterloo last week and heights got crushed so I'm going to say Belleville wins by 21 here. Hayes is going to go off come Friday night.

Marshall at Cambridge- Game of the week in my eyes in both sides of the conference. It's homecoming for Cambridge and they look to take it to the Cards. Also heard that they might have a few key players back from suspension. Both teams are fast and can stop eachothers run game. If Marshall can stop Owens from having a big game they will win. The winner clinches a spot in playoffs with a win Friday. Going to be close but Marshall wins by 7. Their defense is just to good this year.

Poynette at Lakeside Lutheran- well last week Poynette put a whooping on Columbus and honestly I was shocked. I don't know what happened last week with the Cards but I think Poynette is going to suprise teams come Playoffs. Their that good and will show it Friday with a running clock win.

Luther Prep at Columbus- The Cards look to get their first conference win on the year. Luther Prep is just not as good as I thought they'd be. Losing to Lake Mills kind of suprised me. Columbus gets back on track beating Prep by 21.

Lake Mills at Lodi- Won't be a challenge for Lodi and they take it to Lake Mills. Lodi by 28.

Waterloo at New Glarus/Monticello - one thing the Glarner Knights can say is that they haven't played an easy schedule this season. Unfortunately, that hasn't paid off in victories - and it won't Friday night against the Pirates, who should lock down a playoff spot going into the final 2 games against Cambridge and Marshall. Pirates by 14.

Marshall at Cambridge - Speaking of, this is probably going to be your C-South title game. The last time the Bluejays beat Marshall, it was in a 2nd round Level 2 game in 2008 at home, where Cambridge claimed a 17-0 victory. Last year, the Bluejays were 7-0, relatively healthy, and rolling over teams ... and fell 19-3 on two long TD runs by Ty DeForest. A win by Cambridge here wouldn't be surprising, but I don't see a different result from last year - even if the venue is more favorable. Cardinals by 10.

Wisconsin Heights at Belleville - If Ryan Hayes had a better team around him, he'd probably get more press for his play at QB. He'll probably put up big numbers again against the Vanguards. Wildcats by 21.

Poynette at Lakeside Lutheran - whfan is right, the Pumas are for real, and they'll shut down the Warriors run game on the way to a 10th consecutive regular season victory. Pumas by 28.

Luther Prep at Columbus - The Phoenix have the unfortunate role of being the team facing a Cardinals squad that's lost 2 in a row and is going to be looking to get back on track. That said, I don't think this is a blowout. Cardinals by 21.

Lake Mills at Lodi - The L-Cats looked great last week against Luther Prep; I expect them to look equally brutal on the road this week against a stout Blue Devils defense. Blue Devils by 38.

Waterloo at NGM - No stunner by NGM this time around. I think the Pirates are the better team coming in and will punch their ticket to postseason play, and most importantly, remain unbeaten on the year.

Wisconsin Heights at Belleville - Badgerfan and myself have constantly butted heads over this one in years past ([]), but I believe that going in, Belleville is the better team. I have faith in Heights to pull the potential win out, but I think the Wildcats do the job instead. This one will be close, but no cigar for Heights. Cats by 10.

Marshall at Cambridge - Game of the week! Winner is assured a postseason berth and has the upper hand in taking conference. Cambridge will be fired up on Homecoming, but the Cards have the size and strength to shut down Owens, potentially. Whoever throws the football better or wins the turnover battle wins this football game. Right now, I have Marshall, but it's anyone's guess.

Poynette at Lakeside Lutheran - Poynette is for real, everyone. They continue to win.

Luther Prep at Columbus - Am I nuts for thinking Columbus may lose this? I have a funny (or uneasy) feeling about this one......

Lake Mills at Lodi - This one could be ugly.

Any reasoning behind why you chose Cambridge over Marshall? I'm just wondering I love to hear why people chose who they chose.

I can't speak for him, but Owens is a pretty good tailback and their line does have a size advantage. Going against the grain like this can pay off if they do win, too.

Waterloo (2-0, 6-0) at New Glarus/Monticello (0-2, 1-5) - Though NGM may have been in the game last week against Marshall, the defense gave up almost a handful of big pass plays that blew the game open. The same thing will happen this week. I watched the Belleville/Waterloo game last week and saw how Waterloo ran left, right, left, right, then dumped it over the top to Lincks on the outside for long pass plays. I expect Lincks to have 100+ receiving yards this week again. Loo by 14.

Wisconsin Heights (0-2, 1-5) at Belleville (0-2, 2-4) - Belleville has a very potent offense compared to the last 5-6 years. Cole Martin is finally running the ball very well at RB, Hayes continues to be a threat with both his arm and his feet, and Shemanski is (and feel free to argue anyone) the best receiver in the conference. Despite being double-covered 80% of the game against Waterloo, he still had 12 catches for 200+ yards and 3 TD's. He has great hands and has the ability to make big plays after catching the ball. Don't be surprised if Belleville puts up 50+ points Friday night against WH, something that hasn't been done since at least 2007 (correct me if I'm wrong footballtime59). Cats by 28.

Marshall (2-0, 6-0) at Cambridge (2-0, 5-1) - This clearly is the most competitive game of the week on either side of the conference and the only one that I'm unsure about. I'm going to take Marshall by 8 in this one though.

Poynette (2-0, 6-0) at Lakeside Lutheran (1-1, 3-3) - Poynette rolls on. Pumas by 28.

Luther Prep (0-2, 1-5) at Columbus (0-2, 4-2) - Columbus rebounds for a solid victory. Cards by 21.

Lake Mills (1-1, 2-4) at Lodi (2-0, 5-1) - Despite the big win by LM last week, Lodi remains the better team for another year and wins by 28.

Waterloo at new glarus, last years game between these two teams was the game of the year! I expect NG too play for their life's friday. And Wyatt gallitz too repeat what he did to them last year. Waterloo by 7

Heights at Belleville, bellevilles offence is really good, they have a great qb and good weapons around him. Heights will have trouble with them, and this could get ugly. Belleville by 35

Marshall at Cambridge,by far the game of the week. The big question for cambridge is, can they stop ty deforest? As for marshall can they stop josh owens? That kid will probly win player of year. I heard that cambridge is getting players back from suspensions? What's the truth to that? Any ways marshall by 8

Poynette at lakeside, poynette will roll these guys, as expected. And lakeside just doesn't have great speed. Poynette by 40
Luther prep at Columbus, Columbus will take out some anger on prep for that lodi lost a couple weeks ago. Columbus by 35

Lakemills at lodi, Lodi is jus the better team, they will roll lakemills. Lodi by 35

-- Waterloo (2-0, 6-0) at New Glarus/Monticello (0-2, 1-5)
-- Wisconsin Heights (0-2, 1-5) at Belleville (0-2, 2-4)
-- Marshall (2-0, 6-0) at Cambridge (2-0, 5-1) I think marshall is on a mission this year after what happened last season
-- Poynette (2-0, 6-0) at Lakeside Lutheran (1-1, 3-3)
-- Luther Prep (0-2, 1-5) at Columbus (0-2, 4-2) Columbus takes out a lot of frustration on Luther Prep after starting conference play out 0-2
-- Lake Mills (1-1, 2-4) at Lodi (2-0, 5-1)

And in reply to badgerfan I coached shemanski in 7 on 7 this summer and that kid is just a pure athlete, most impressive part apart him during 7 on 7 was he would out jump the corners from madison east and verona that had almost six inches on him. To your point about 50+ points i don't believe that's been accomplished in the 2000's and I'd be surprised if this time does it. They're just too sloppy on offense and to put up 50 you can't have any wasted possessions. The last time the team put up anywhere close to 50 was 48 against Oakfield in 05 (when they were in the trailways). If i remember correctly that would have been my senior year when they had a pretty experienced oline, a young but really good askey, and a pretty good defense. Belleville's old coach Jeff Minter had a pretty good collection of stats but those aren't available online anymore, would be interesting to see though, might have been one of askey's better career games. Also put up 43 and 41 that year. Must have been because I was the ball boy.
