Standings though Week 8:

1. badgerfan15 53-11, .828
2. thecrackerjack 47-11, .810 (missed Week 6)
3. whfan202 51-13, .797
4. amped0808 37-10, .787 (missed Week 1 and 7)
5. bcushing 46-13, .780 (only picked the C-south in Week 1)
T6. wihsfootball 41-12, .774 (missed Week 1)
T6. ash22themagnificent 41-12, .774 (missed Week 1)
8. importfromil 49-15, .766
9. footballtime59 40-13, .755 (missed Week 1)

There will be a new Capitol South pick 'em champion this year, unless I can manage to go 6-0 while most of the rest of you go no better than 2-4 ... but I'm guessing that won't happen. Even though amped missed a pair of weeks, I'll leave him in the standings - anyone who disagrees can mentally delete him from the list.

It was a perfect week for the road teams - and thecrackerjack picked all 6. Half the field got Lodi/Poynette, but 3 of them missed on another game. ash22 and amped0808 got it, but then took Waterloo over Marshall while footballtime59 had Heights over NGM.

The final week of the regular season:

Belleville (3-5, 1-3) at New Glarus-Monticello (1-3, 2-6)
Wisconsin Heights (0-4, 2-6) at Marshall (3-1, 7-1)
Waterloo (3-1, 7-1) at Cambridge (4-0, 7-1)
Luther Prep (0-4, 1-7) at Lodi (4-0, 7-1)
Poynette (3-1, 7-1) at Lake Mills (1-3, 2-6)
Columbus (2-2, 6-2) at Lakeside Lutheran (2-2, 4-4)

The only game with playoff implications is the final one, where the winner is in and the loser is out. All other teams have either clinched a playoff spot or been eliminated. Lodi has clinched the C-North title for playoff purposes (even with a loss and a Poynette win, the Blue Devils win on head-to-head). Cambridge wins the C-South outright with a win; Waterloo wins a share of the C-South with a win, and a Marshall win in that scenario makes the C-South a 3-way tie at the top.
I'm not saying some things the WIAA does are wrong, ... I'm just saying, "I find it weird."

Did anyone see that Owens rushed for almost 350 yards last week? Talk about offensive player of the year winner...just a beast this year.

Belleville at NGM- I don't know if this game will be close or a long night for one of the teams. I think Belleville will have a good night passing the ball and it will be to much for NGM. Belleville by 7

Wisconsin Heights at Marshall- It's going to be a long night for Heights and a long drive home. They may get a few scores though if they can get the passing game going. But in the end their lack of numbers and talent will allow Marshall to dominate the game. Marshall with a running clock

Waterloo at Cambridge- Well I can't say I was surprised with Waterloo losing last week but they kind of did it to themselves. Costly turnovers was the reason they lost and they couldn't take advantage of the turnovers that they caused. With Owens running the way he is I don't see Waterloo stopping him. Cambridge will win the title outright this year with a 14 point win.

Luther Prep at Lodi- All that can be said at this point is Lodi's JV team will get a lot of playing time Friday. Lodi with a running clock.

Poynette at Lake Mills- Poynette will go off with a big win heading into the playoffs. Pumas by 21

Columbus at Lakeside Lutheran- Columbus will dominate like they know how to and will head into the playoffs with an attitude like they did last season. Columbus by 21

Belleville at New Glarus-Monticello - The Highway 69 rivalry is one of the best in the conference. I think that Belleville has more offense than NGM, but NGM has a pretty big line and a very fast tailback, too. Binger is also a playmaker on offense. Belleville wins a shootout.

Wisconsin Heights at Marshall - Heights has the athleticism to score points in this one. I think the lack of numbers is what does them in. My hope is that they win one of the halves, like they did against NGM last week. It's been a long season for these guys, but the fact they cobbled up two wins with so much stacked against them is satisfying enough for me. Maybe there will be hope for the future.

Waterloo at Cambridge - Cambridge simply has more weapons than Waterloo. Don't get me wrong, Loo is a solid team, but they just don't have the guns to match up with the Blue Jays. Owens will have a big game and lead a very good Cambridge team into the postseason with an unbeaten mark. May help them in seeding too.

Luther Prep at Lodi - Prep had so much trouble moving the football last season, but they have moved it more this year, which was nice to see. Lodi, after dismantling Poynette last week has reloaded as usual and the Blue Devils will cruise into the playoffs with an undefeated record in conference. Hopefully the jump back down to D4 allows for a deep run.

Poynette at Lake Mills - Has the ability to be a game where LM plays spoiler with being at home.... but I think the Pumas will come out and be ready for the playoffs with a commanding win.

Columbus at Lakeside Lutheran - Lakeside simply does not throw the football, and that's what's going to keep them out of the postseason this year. Butler is a fine tailback, one of the best in his conference, but Columbus' more multifaceted approach on offense is what will put them in the postseason.

Regarding who wins OPOY in the South....... you almost have to hand it to Owens with the Blue Jays being the undefeated conference champs.... but it'd be a mistake not to throw Ryan Hayes' name into the mix, or even his favorite target, Shemanski. Both of those guys have put up astronomical numbers this year. In fact, Shemanski the leading receiver in the state this year.


Yeah I could see there being an argument with them because Belleville was in a few conference games but in the long run Cambridge has won every game in conference play and that will be the factor in Owens winning it. Also did not know Shemanski was leading the state in receiving this year...good to hear.

Owens gets a huge boost with (possibly) being undefeated conference champs and big numbers, but Hayes and Shemanski have to be at least #2 and #3 IMO though. Hayes is easily the leader in passing yards for the season and is also 4th in rushing yards in conference. Shemanski is NUMBER ONE IN THE STATE in receiving yards and 1 short of leading in TD's. Those numbers far surpass any other receiving numbers in conference, which often came with a spotlight on him or double-coverage.

Who do you think could get defensive player of the year? I know Shemanski has done well on the defensive side of the ball too.

Going into last game against Cambridge, he had 47 total tackles and 4 INT's. I doubt he'd get DPOY though, McMahan would have a better chance for the Wildcats, IMO. It'd also be hard to have a DPOY when Belleville allows an average of 40 ppg. My best guess would be someone from Marshall or Cambridge, maybe Deforest again (though I have no idea how he is defensively this year).

I'm not going to change my Poynette pick, but I'm going to put them on slight upset alert for perhaps this game, but definitely the 1st level of playoffs due to Bruchs going out for 2-3 weeks with a knee injury. He is the QB and leads the team in INT's.

I do hope he recovers fast, he's also one of the premier basketball players in the Capitol too.
