Wauwatosa East at Brookfield Central - The post-Kennedy Era shouldn't see much of a drop-off this year, but it will intriguing to watch how the mentality of the program changes. Not that the Lancers will fall off much (they've gone through a parade of coaches since Synold's days, and nary skipped a beat over the years), but Kennedy is one of those rare coaches whose teams seem to take on his one-of-a-kind mentality.

Marquette at Muskego - The loaded offense vs. the loaded defense. The difference in this one may rest on how much, if anything, Marquette's offense can produce with so many new faces. Marquette's history vs. Krause's Wing-T cannot be overlooked, and might keep this one close just like Level 4 in 2018 (except much warmer).

Friday, 8/23

Menomonee Falls at Germantown - As someone who came of age during the 90s, so to speak, when it comes to HS football, it feels weird to think of these two programs as a bit of an afterthought. But here we are. This year they both should be in the hunt for a playoff spot, but beyond that I don't know. A healthy Connor Leffler will make Germantown more dynamic, while Tamir Thomas and Nate McLean got valuable experience in Falls' lost 2018 season.

Wauwatosa West at Sussex Hamilton - Hamilton is in a decent position to jump up the GMC standings. Replacing Kollath offensively won't be easy, but Finnessy is everywhere near as dynamic on both sides of the ball. Not sure what to make of Tosa West in 2019, but I know losing Austin Ertl on both sides of the ball can't possibly make you better.

Brookfield East at West Allis Hale - Hale was young last year and that should lead to better showings this year, but they are simply far behind everybody but the Tosas in this league. I got a chuckle from their over-aggressive defense in the scrimmage when they got to line up against WAC. That'll be back next year, boys, and it's all either of you will have sadly. B'East has McGath and Hunt on offense and expect them to put on a show on the turf on Friday.

Games of Note

Port Washington at West Bend East - PW's graduation losses far outweigh WBE's, who should be in position to fight for another playoff berth in the wide-open North Shore (if you forget that Homestead exists).

Monona Grove at Waunakee - Heckuva an opener for both, Waunakee has been the more up of the two recently, and why pick against Pat Rice and Co.?

Whitnall at Burlington - Whitnall may be the odds-on favorite to capture the Woodland-East crown this year, but I have a hard time seeing them going down to Burlington and grabbing a win. The Woodland has struggled vs. the SLC historically, and Burlington, while not as big on the line this year as one would expect from an SLC squad, has some dynamic skill position talent to match the Falcons.

Week One Matchups

Thursday, 8/22

Wauwatosa East at Brookfield Central
Tosa East hired a new coach weeks before the season and I’m sure that won’t bode well for them this season. East could definitely benefit from getting out of this conference. They’re definitely Woodland-East material. Central by a landslide. 

Marquette at Muskego
Muskego is just tough. Offense, defense... Those guys are just tough.. Marquette reloads as always but starts the season 0-1. 

Friday, 8/23

Menomonee Falls at Germantown
Not sold on Germantown and haven’t been sold on this program for awhile. Their once was a time where GTown dominated on the field, court and track. We’re far removed from those days. Menomonee Falls has playmakers especially on the offensive side of the ball. One of the more talented backs in Wisconsin as well as some very good playmakers on the outside. Falls could surprise some down the line this season. 

Wauwatosa West at Sussex Hamilton
Tosa West looks really good. With the addition of Swittel and a couple of other notable coaches to their staff, Tosa West could really make a jump this season. They look very physical and it appears they’re building a culture conducive to winning. I’m not sold on Sussex but on paper they should win this game week 1. LOOK OUT FOR TW! 

Brookfield East at West Allis Hale
Donovan Hunt’s transfer from Tosa East is something they have yet to recover from. I could see him playing a lot of positions in college but as of right now he has it all as the RB for B’East. This will be ugly. 

Games of Note

Port Washington at West Bend East
Great staff and group of guys over at PW. Don’t know much about WBE. 

Monona Grove at Waunakee

Whitnall at Burlington
Burlington loses a bunch of experience and playmaking. Whitnall has a very solid team with aspirations making some noise this season. If this is indeed their year, this is a game they should win week 1.

Wauwatosa East at Brookfield Central - The first year after Jed Kennedy left Kenosha Bradford, the Red Devils struggled and have yet to regain their form. A number of blue-chippers graduated at the same time, but the cupboard wasn't bare. The scenario at BC is similar but the one difference, to me, is that Central has had a lot of experience with coaching turnover. It's safe bet to say they'll regress some-- good, but not regularly challenging for state titles anymore--  regardless of scheme, community support etc. because Kennedy was just one of those rare guys at this level. Naturally, none of this will make one whit of difference against Tosa East so it might be a while before we see the real impact of the changes on Gebhardt Road.

Marquette at Muskego - Muskego is that unusual combination of a pick that's both smart and sexy.  Everybody wants to pick them, and why not? They're the defending state champs and they return quite a bit. In fact, they show all signs of being set for a long run of dominance. Except for one thing. This is only one game, and they're playing a team with the skill, talent, experience, organization and motivation to beat them. Last fall's game turned on a 4th-and-goal stop by Muskego. This one could be just as tight, but give me MUHS. Why? I will take Marquette's defense and blue-chip linebacker corps to stop the Wing-T, because they've had an entire offseason to prepare for it. And I'll take their TE1 and lone returning offensive playmaker to take the top off the Warriors' Cover 1 and force Muskego's star safety to leave the Hilltoppers' other three receivers in winnable one-on-one matchups. This is a must-watch game and I'm glad it's on TV.

Friday, 8/23

Menomonee Falls at Germantown - No real reason to pick Germantown here, just a hunch that they've got a little more in the cupboard than Falls does. If we were still doing confidence points, this would be my lowest bet.

Wauwatosa West at Sussex Hamilton - Hamilton is an ascendant program, while Tosa West belongs in the Woodland. Thing is, Hamilton has been just average enough over the last few years and West has been just feisty enough to potentially make this one an interesting match.

Brookfield East at West Allis Hale - Hale has a handful of talented juniors but it isn't nearly enough to make them competitive this year, and honestly might not be enough next season either. The line between the haves and have-nots in this conference is as stark as it is anywhere in the state. East, meanwhile has turned itself into one of those "haves" since Swittel's last few seasons and carried on from there.

Games of Note

Port Washington at West Bend East - Which side of the building is West Bend East? Does West Bend force fans to sit in alternate rows based on their address or the day they were born? 

Monona Grove at Waunakee - I imagine this game is a big deal if you live in the Madison area. 

Whitnall at Burlington - Tenhagen and Deans are still trying to rekindle the glory of the Dalton Era they played in. Will this be their year?

Wauwatosa East at Brookfield Central: Ironic that both teams are coming into this matchup with new head coaches. Too bad for East they could be in for a another rough year.
Marquette at Muskego: This could be just as good as the Level 4 matchup last year between these two. How Marquette plugs in new faces on both sides of the ball will dictate their fate in the league.

Friday, 8/23

Menomonee Falls at Germantown: Two teams that at one time were local forces in their own leagues. Have to believe that G-Town has a bit more talent at this point here.

Wauwatosa West at Sussex Hamilton: Tosa West has had some decent teams that could compete against the other GMC teams but never could get over the hump. That will continue here.

Brookfield East at West Allis Hale: Hale should see some more improvements this year but it may not show in the win-loss column.

MUHS - Muskego was everything it was supposed to be.  Marquette shut Muskego down for three and a half quarters but after a couple opening drives, their offense hurt themselves repeatedly with unforced errors.  Eventually the Warriors counterpunched and the MUHS defense was too worn down to keep them out of the end zone.

Lots of major moments but in my mind, the game hinged on a third-down play by Marquette with about 5:30 left in the game and Muskego having just gone ahead 14-10. McDevitt hit Novotny over the middle, but the TE had to slide to make the catch and Wohlers played it perfectly, flying in from deep with a jarring hit to break up the pass and force the Hilltoppers to punt it back to Muskego. After that the Wing-T did what the Wing-T does.  

Tough, extremely physical game by both teams. Both are still young in a lot of spots. This early in the season, the level of play was obviously not the same as their playoff match last fall but you could see the new starters stepping up on both sides. Kudos to both teams.

Only caught the final minutes, but did Current really only get three carries?

Early on, MUHS really has the buck sweep sniffed out which I suspect is why Muskego went away from it. They did go back to it at the end for a crucial first down, however, and they also lined Current up on the wing for that quick pass that he turned into a 55-yard TD reception.
