Waukesha North at Waukesha West - Again, another chance for North to break through that Classic 8 Glass Ceiling (copyright pending). West still can't run the football, but they can certainly pass. The Wolverines got a bit of a bye last week with Falls choosing to play almost entirely second-stringers, so nothing can really be gleaned from that result. At the end of the day, it's so, so hard to pick against the establishment in this league in matchups like this.

Friday, 9/27

Oconomowoc at Arrowhead - This Oconomowoc team might still have been a playoff team in the old Little Ten, unfortunately in the C8 it's a different story. Arrowhead is still (recent years) Arrowhead, glimpses of former power but still more lapses. Last week, they jumped out to a big lead and then let North come all the way back and have a shot to win at the end. Arrowhead should win comfortably, but there is a chance the Raccoons could surprise and make a game out of it.

Germantown at Kettle Moraine - Germantown had struggled offensively most of the year but then took it to an increasingly-disappointing Sussex Hamilton  (without Erato, mind you) squad last week to re-open their playoff hopes. KM was not able to put together back-to-back shockers as they were controlled from beginning to end by a Mukwonago team that may be better than anyone thought coming into the year. The mid-to-lower tier of the C8 > than its counterpart in the GMC, so I'll take the Lasers (and the points) here.

Catholic Memorial at Muskego - I'm starting to buy into the notion that this CMH squad is not quite on the level of previous years, but come playoff time (they still have to ensure they get there first) that shouldn't hurt them too much. It will hurt them here though as I do not foresee a repeat of last year's game. Muskego has the Wing-T rolling. Current hits a few HRs, Fox gets picked off twice (once for a score) and Muskego wins by 17.

Mukwonago at Waukesha South - This Mukwonago team is very physical, and their offense is a good balance of run vs. pass. It's not the wishbone but they still kill teams on the ground. Defensively, they have some size and can get after it. South, well, they're still South, functional, but waaaayyy out of their depth in the Classic 8.

Waukesha North at Waukesha West If there was ever a year for North to get a win to get over the hump, they let one get away.  this is their last shot.

Friday, 9/27

Oconomowoc at Arrowhead Oconomowoc is a mess, 3 score game at least if not a running clock.
Germantown at Kettle Moraine.  Germantown won a game 3-0 this season and KM is averaging less that 8 points a game can i just bet the under?
Catholic Memorial at Muskego Gotta go against chalk to make up some ground
Mukwonago at Waukesha South Indians secure a playoff birth in week 6.

Waukesha North at Waukesha West - West should win. West needs the win. But dammit, I love to pick the underdog and North needs this even more.

Friday, 9/27

Oconomowoc at Arrowhead - Both of these schools and teams are trying to model themselves on the Arrowhead of the previous decade. Both seem to have a long way to go, but Arrowhead hasn't fallen quite so far down the hill that Oconomowoc is climbing.

Germantown at Kettle Moraine - KM beat Memorial. That has to count for something.

Catholic Memorial at Muskego - Before the season, I said that Marquette, West and Memorial were the only teams I could see tripping Muskego up. West has had a hard time developing a ground game but I could see Memorial following Marquette's formula here on defense-- stay gap-sound with their own top-tier linebackers and shut down the belly series, buck sweep and associated counters. On offense, Memorial throws the ball much better than Marquette this year.  They can test Muskego's Cover-1 look and possibly even force them out of it. I think the Crusaders win this.

Mukwonago at Waukesha South - Mukwonago is building up toward a potential D1 playoff run. If they get sent to the Madison area (i.e., away from Muskego) like some previous C8 squads, you have to like their chances.

Waukesha North at Waukesha West: May cut out of work early to see this one (To skip a rather what has been a hellish shift for Thursdays). North pushed Arrowhead to the limit last week. Though West won last week against Falls, it was against a diminished Indians squad. I expect a close one here.

Friday, 9/27

Oconomowoc at Arrowhead: Malling gets another rude welcome from Rauch and company.

Germantown at Kettle Moraine: To say G-Town beating a beat up SH team was surprising was something. KM is slowly getting things together here could be trouble for the Warhawks.

Catholic Memorial at Muskego: This one will be a knock down drag 'em out affair. Here's hoping Mother Nature can behave just long enough for this one.

Mukwonago at Waukesha South: South is waiting for the Hale matchup here.

Super disappointed in North's performance yesterday. Didn't seem ready (particularly on defense, West had receivers running open a lot) and the confidence just dropped after going back down 10 in the third.

West is really kinda pedestrian though...at least for this league. Blount is the difference-maker. Might be even better than his brother...unfortunately he lacks the same size.
