Southeast conference:
North Division: Muskego is on the rise with plenty of returning starters after a young varsity team went 2-7. But they also had a 7-2 JV team and a 6-1 freshman team. Franklin can contend if they can find a QB that can run their successful passing offense. They have receivers such as 3rd year starter Anthony Meyer to lead the receiving corp. Oak Creek is slowly but surely rebuilding after the 2006 recruting scandal. Burlington seems to be able to run or pass but defense brings up a couple questions. South Milwaukee is a rejuvinated program that will soon be contenders if they can continue to build up after hiring a new coach in 2006. Division battle: Muskego vs. Franklin

South Division:

Kenosha Tremper and Kenosha Bradford will be the two to duke it out for the division championship and maybe even for the enitre conference. These two teams can run or pass and have pretty good defense. Racine Horlick may have reached their peak last year and have lost some key athleticism but may be able to replace some of it. Racine Park will need to find yet another running back to anchor the offense and should have a ok defense. Racine Case has a lot of question marks. For whatever reason they seem to struggle year in and year out. But how their position battles turn out could prove to be quite interesting. And with their numerous struggles, there are probably going to be many. But maybe they could be reliving 2004 or 2006 this year if the team comes together and has a good offseason.

As far as I know, Burlington has moved to the Southern Lakes Conference, and South Milwaukee has moved to the Woodland Conference.

And, I was also under the impression that there isn't two divisions in the Southeast Conference for football, there is for basketball. And this year, with only 8 teams, unless Burlington and South Milwaukee aren't moving, there will only be one division, the Southeast Conference.

The best D1 conference not in the SE will again be the Wisconsin Valley. SPASH who has been to the state semifinals each of the last 3 seasons will be very good this year. They have a solid running back in Sikorski. D.C. Everest will be a tough team like always and Badger recruit Konrad Zagzebski will anchor a good defense. Marshfield is going to be another solid team that is very well coached. Wisconsin Rapids should be better this year with a good sophmore class.

Yes. I apologize for not knowing that info until I saw it on the Journal Sentinel website soon after posting that. What will happen to the Southeast Conference I have no idea but then it narrows it down to the two Kenosha schools that will contend for the Southeast Conference. Muskego, Franklin, and the Racine Park and Horlick will contend for 3rd. Unless one team defects to the North Division.

I agree with the post above that the WVC is going to be the strongest conference as it is year in and year out.

Point should have another strong team, Everest is always tough, Marshfield will be better after struggling last couple seasons, Rapids should be ready.

I think the best D3 conference is the Woodland Conference. Unfortunatly, us in Southeastern Wisconsin have the opportunity to run into Wisco every year.

You're right, theres NO other conference in the state that even "comes close". Other than Kimberly, the FVA doesnt really make much of a dent when it comes to state.

Oshkosh West, Neenah and Appleton North have all represented well recently. I wouldn't callthe FVA "untouchable" though.

I can see the Eastern Valley Conference suprising many next year, with defending state champ Waupaca leading the way.

Marshfield did not exactly "struggle" last season. They finished 3rd in the Wisconsin Valley behind D.C. Everest & Stevens Point. They beat traditional div. 2 powerhouse Menomonie twice rather handily. They advanced to the div. 2 state semi-finals before losing big to eventual champion, Kimberly. The Tigers return a lot in '09 on the d-line, secondary, o-line, QB & WR's. However, they lose their starting linebackers & tailback Dipo Fagbemi who rushed for 1900 yds. and 28 TD's last season. Another tough schedule awaits with non-conf. games @ both Menomonie, WI & Menominee, Michigan. They should have an edge in coaching, experience & QB-play in most games if not in outstanding talent.

I think aside from Kimberly the FVA has no one who can make deep state runs (maybe appleton north). However I think the FVA is one of the best conferences top to bottom, teams in the bottom half of the conference usually still compete with teams in the upper half as well (maybe not kimberly but no one has really competed with them recently) Obviously as I am from the FVA I'm biased towards it, I've also heard lots of good things about WVC lots of good teams from there, and if I had to pick a best football conference WVC would probly get my vote.

Over the last 9 years, the Classic Eight has had a team in the state championship game 9 times (two in 2004, none in 2005). Arrowhead, Mukwonago, Waukesha West and Catholic Memorial have all represented the C8 conference in either a D1 or D2 championship game during that span.

How can any other conference say they are 'the best' when comparing their results to that, over the last 9 years?
