Nice to see the local media cover some of these games. We all appreciate this very much as the community supports our teams!

On local TV (MY 32) Bay Port and Pulaski will be broadcasted. This should be a good one involving these rivals which go back to the old Bay Conference. Pulaski?s former coach of 1 year returns to coach against his former team.

Of course it would be juicier had he been there for many years, done great things then got forced out because he didn?t play a school board member?s kid [:-]

But seriously, with two outstanding coaches and along with the carry over from other sports, this has the makings for a really good one!
De Pere vs Green Bay East should be another good competitive matchup. The schools would border each other?s school districts, however there is a section that separates them where those students attend Southwest. Just pointing out to potential rivalry that could really brew up between these 2 schools! In the past, many of East?s best student-athletes have come from Allouez. They would border De Pere ?only to be divided by this affluent southern section of Allouez where the students cross the Fox River to attend GBSW.

The Red Devils will pride themselves on hitting. De Pere will be looking to recover from the Bay Port loss last week. This game will be broadcasted on the Green Bay Press Gazette website:

The big game I?ve personally been waiting for will be at Ashwaubenon, where the Jags host the Southwest Fighting Trojans. IMO, (....remember I?m a homer!) this has become one of the better "new" rivalries as a result of the Conference Realignment about 5 years ago.

This game will be broadcasted on the radio tonight (AM 1440).

Ashwaubenon and Southwest also border each other. Around the early 00?s Ashwaubenon routed Southwest in the WIAA playoffs (run time) and had the upper hand early when the FRCC was formed.

Then about the 2nd year Bryce Paup took over as head coach, Southwest soundly defeated Ashwaubenon at home. The following season in Coach Jonas? first year, Southwest outplayed our Jags but Ashwaubenon escaped with a win. I remember Southwest drove down near our endzone late in the game. It was on a 4th down play ( FG try?) But I remember Southwest had a bad snap from center that really hurt that potential game winning drive.

I remember that game one or 2 ?non-star? receivers were put in position for Ashwaubenon to make key receptions but they dropped the ball. I?ll get back to this?..

The following game 2 years ago at Southwest, another chapter to the new rivalry was added. It was a great defensive battle. Southwest was up 3-0, when around midfield QB Austin Kassner audibled at the LOS and hit WR Andrew Clark on a big pass play down inside the 5 yd line. This set up the eventual winning TD.

But more drama, as Southwest missed an open receiver in the end zone on the final play of the game while deep in Jags territory.

Last year (again at Southwest due to the scheduling) was pretty much all Southwest. Southwest won some key matchups along the LOS and made a lot of big plays because of this.

Coach Bryce Paup loves scheming defenses, so it?s going to be interesting to see how the Jags move the ball. But back to that above comment on the Jag player(s) who had the opportunity to make plays. This game is important for Ashwaubenon. I feel one key to success for Ashwaubenon, is some ?non-star? player is going to have to step up on offense! He?s going to have to catch those passes and/or pick up those needed yards when his team calls on him.

If you?re in the area and want to catch a game- check this one out!

Other than that- Sheboygan South vs Preble could be pretty good too!

As you can see, not many of the games were very competitive this past week. Ashwaubenon/Manitowoc Lincoln was pretty good- a long game just like the Ashwaubenon/GB West game the week prior.

With respect to Pulaski, probably the most exciting FRCC game this past week was Green Bay Preble at Pulaski. I say this because it was a tough loss for the Red Raiders. The Hornets came back from behind and won in the final minutes. Preble QB/DB Will Daniels really showed a lot of leadership. With the game tied and Pulaski with the ball, Daniels first makes the interception.

Then right after the interception, he leads the team on a game winning drive as the QB. One play he makes things happen running out of the pocket, then he throws the eventual game winning TD pass.

Am going to post the FRCC standings here. I want to point out Pulaski. What's tough for them is they are 1-3. Their 3 losses came to all 4-0 teams. It's going to be interesting to see when the regular season is over, where Pulaski and De Pere finish. De Pere is 3-1, with their 3 wins coming against teams who are currently 0-4.

I don't mean any disrespect to De Pere, as they are playing the cards dealt. Just pointing out these things happen when you have 12 teams in a football conference.

Both schools lost to Bay Port, and De Pere and Pulaski do not play each other this year. I think for the most part though, it all works out in the wash when all is said and done.

I hope []

This post is just for fun. Please don?t get excited over it. I was curious to see what would happen if the FRCC used any type of point system to rank their teams outside of wins and losses.

So for fun, I took another states point system. Some states use computers, others use points, some put names on balloons & throw darts, etc. (Just kidding on the darts). I used one of Colorado?s systems. What they do in this state is they have smaller conferences (5-7 teams) all based on enrollment size. The conference champion automatically makes the playoffs. (In some divisions it?s the top 2 in each conference.)

Then they fill the remaining playoff teams based off of points. Or they call these teams ?Wild Card? teams. At the end of the regular season a committee computes the points earned. They use 2 charts. One is ?Victory Points.? (Points earned for teams you defeat). The other chart is ?Defeat Points? (Points you get for losing.)

Both victory points and defeat points charts are broken down into school size/classisfication and how many wins your opponent had. So naturally, the larger the school you defeated and the more wins they had- the better.

A team can also get more points by defeating a strong smaller school than a weak one your own size. (But not by much) Again, this won?t happen, don?t worry it?s just for fun:

If the season ended today, here?s how the FRCC would look:

Green Bay Preble 4-0 (372 pts)
Green Bay Southwest 4-0 (366 pts)
Bay Port 4-0 (358 pts)

Green Bay Notre Dame 3-1 (336 pts)
De Pere 3-1 (330 pts)

Manitowoc 2-2 (280 pts)
Pulaski 1-3 (273 pts)
Sheboygan South 2-2 (237 pts)

Ashwaubenon 1-3 (195 pts)

Green Bay East 0-4 (180 pts)
Sheboygan North 0-4 (175 pts)
Green Bay West 0-4 (155 pts)

So far one thing worked out, in head to head games those teams that won are currently higher. These points will get adjusted as the season moves along.

Again- this is just for fun- I added some neighboring D2 teams. Hortonville from the Bay Conference and Kaukauna & Menasha of the VFA. Same points charts.

Area D2 teams

Green Bay Southwest 4-0 (366 pts)

Menasha 3-1 (335 pts)
De Pere 3-1 (330 pts)
Hortonville 3-1 (279 pts)

Pulaski 1-3 (273 pts)
Shawano 1-3 (196 pts)
Ashwaubenon 1-3 (195 pts)

Kaukauna 0-4 (185 pts)
Green Bay West 0-4 (155 pts)

A few notes-

- Like many states- "Wins are wins" and this is where teams rack up points.
- Like many states, it uses the theory the larger the school the stronger the football program should be. We all know this isn't always the case. This is where some states try to fix it and things really get complicated.
- NC games are included.
- With 2 less wins, you can see how close Pulaski is to Hortonville because of the size schools they play (only 6 pts behind).
- Although Kaukauna & GB West are 0-4, the Ghosts get more "defeat points" due to playing more larger schools.
- I should go back and include Shawano. update: Shawano included.

For fun I thought I would look at some of the D3 teams in our area. There are some pretty good teams like West De Pere and Green Bay Notre Dame. Also Seymour is having a good year and then in some nearby conferences there?s Waupaca to the west and Plymouth to the east.

All of these schools will make the playoffs. As of today, let?s see how the point system I?m using would weight them:

- Seymour 4-0 (338 pts)
- Green Bay Notre Dame 4-0 (336 pts)
- Little Chute 4-0 (313 pts)
- Waupaca 4-0 (312 pts)
- West De Pere 4-0 (297 pts)
- Plymouth 4-0 (291 pts)

So it should be interesting to see what happens as the season moves along. As we?ve seen, West De Pere is blowing their opponents out of the water again this year.

Just to explain where some of these schools got their points-

* Notre Dame defeated two D1 and one D2 schools. Although these opponents don?t have any wins, the Tritons earned good ?Victory Points? for playing & defeating larger opponents.
* Plymouth is the only school in this group who played an opponent one division lower. That win didn?t count as much.
* Seymour has defeated opponents that have more wins to date. This is what helped them.
* Looking at Waupaca and Little Chute, LC?s opponents have more wins. Waupaca defeated 2 schools with 0 wins and a higher level opponent with 1 win, and they balanced out close.

Again, especially when the teams play head to head a lot of this should balance out. Hopefully it can stir things up though.

Felt like posting some FRCC football thoughts if I may-

For those interested, My New 32 will televise the Green Bay Notre Dame at Green Bay Southwest game tonight. (7pm)

This has been a good rivalry for many years now, and what makes it pretty exciting is many of the players played together as teammates in their youth feeder system. The Trojans football program is probably at an all-time high right now. Meanwhile Green Bay Notre Dame themselves have always been an outstanding program . Both schools have top notch coaching too. Yes, the Tritons were blown out by Bay Port this season, but in a rivalry game, anything can happen.

Pulaski at Ashwaubenon should be another very good game. The 1-3 records they both have don?t really reflect the quality football teams they really are. Both are old Bay Conference foes who had many good games years ago. But around the mid 2000?s the Red Raiders football program dropped a notch or two and some years dwelled in the Old Bay Conference cellar those years with teams like Marinette and Seymour.

But like legendary UM football radio announcer Bob Ufer once said??We wrap fish in yesterday?s newspaper.?

In recent years Pulaski has gotten serious about football , brought in new coaching blood and it?s been a pleasure to ?have them back.? The Red Raiders/Jaguars rivalry is renewed. Three seasons ago as Ashwaubenon was driving for the game winning field goal try, the Pulaski defense kept a Jag player with the ball from going out of bounds which prevented stopping the clock. This preserved the win for Pulaski.

Two years ago the Jags jumped out to a 3-4 TD lead, and when Pulaski figured things out it was a little too late for the Ashwaubenon win. Then last season Ashwaubenon fought from behind to send the game into OT, which was won by Pulaski.

The Bay Port vs Green Bay West game- In recent years things once got ugly in the sportsmanship department when these two teams played. In the newspaper a game write-up mentioned trash talking/taunting and one team running up the score. While many have a hunch how this game will go, let?s practice some of the character/values Vince Lombardi stressed when he coached the Packers. These teams are better than what happened that game.

DePere playing Sheboygan South appears to be a good one! This could be a very exciting and competitive game. Both of these programs have been trying very hard and this is one series that has always had the potential in the ?new rivalry? department.

Manitowoc Lincoln playing Green Bay East and Green Bay Preble playing Sheboygan North are two games involving opponents at different tiers within the FRCC. The Ships should bounce back after last week . While East and North rebuild we know they will dig down and give their best effort.
