Brookfield Academy at Cambridge - Cambridge is coming off several good years, but may fall back to the pack this year. BA may rise a bit in their league, but the difference between leagues is quite large.

Hope Christian at Milwaukee North - If, and that's a big if, this game gets played, the players that should be returning for North are far superior than who should be returning for HOPE.

St. Francis at Milwaukee Vincent - The opening game for the brand-spanking-new facility at Vincent Stadium. As it turns out, St. Francis will be breaking in a new QB this year, but he has a pretty good RB to feed behind him. This was a 49-0 win for the Mariners a year ago, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was somewhat more competitive this time around.

Kenosha Christian Life at St. Thomas More - I really don't like making this pick (nothing against KCL) because STM needs some good news badly, but the cupboard is so bare over there. They've stayed afloat (relatively) with guys like Jacob Morgan and Eric Williams recently, but who fills in for them this year? KCL remains an unknown in their return to varsity football.

Catholic Central at University School - Low numbers and lack of big-time talent will plague BCC again this year. USM is young (just two seniors), but the Boyd kid can play. Will probably be a closer game than it should be due to BCC's preparedness, but the Wildcats should start the season on the right foot.

St. John's NWMA at Waupun - SJNMA is back in the land of normally-functioning HS football programs, which is step 1. They also have a solid coaching staff, which is step 2. Becoming functional and competitive is step 3, and they were trending that way towards the end of last year. Waupun is a struggling program themselves, but is probably closer to true competitiveness than the Lancers at this point.

Saturday, 8/24

Living Word Lutheran at Menominee Indian - Most of the week, I've wanted to pick MI here, but I think LWL with their handful of experienced linemen returning and the kid whose taking over QB (Rose) will have enough to get the win on the road.

Lake Country Lutheran at St. Mary's Springs - Springs was "streets ahead" in the playoffs last year and probably remains there for the time-being. LCL has a lot of multi-year contributors to replace, but it's a program that rolls on. Not sure their state-leading conference winning streak ends this year, but in the new alignment next year it will be tested.

Brookfield Academy at Cambridge: It should be a solid matchup. Cambridge still is pegged to be favorite in the Cap South despite needing to replace a bunch of production. BA should push for a playoff spot but I am having a hard time seeing them on top here.

Hope Christian at Milwaukee North: The bigger question is will this be played? North should have a bit of an edge here. Not sure what HOPE can muster for talent and numbers this year.

St. Francis at Milwaukee Vincent: Hopefully MPS continues to upgrade facilities at a steady pace. Vincent should be alright in league play but St. Francis should bring home a big win.

Kenosha Christian Life at St. Thomas More: It's sad that More with Eric Williams running around could not get a win last year. Now he's gone and there isn't much to suggest a repeat winless year could be avoided.

Catholic Central at University School: BCC should find a win or two somewhere this year, but once again low numbers come calling curtailing any hopes for a higher finish in the Metro Classic.

St. John's NWMA at Waupun: St. John's has to prove it here. Nice to see that program back at a full schedule with the later start time.

Saturday, 8/24

Living Word Lutheran at Menominee Indian: LWL will be rebuilding this year by the looks of it. To boot they make the long drive up to Keshena to face Menominee Indian as they return to 11-man after spending a few years in 8-man. It'll be a year full of adjusting back to 11-man for the Eagles. Will most likely catch Clache and company when they come down to Johnson Creek in week 5.

Lake Country Lutheran at St. Mary's Springs: D6 is fortunate that Milwaukee South had to decline a postseason spot due to low numbers and injuries. Unfortunately the Ledgers became D5's and in particular LCL's problem. SMS ran the Lightning out of the stadium in level 4 and there isn't too much there to prove that LCL can make a jump to beat Springs here.

FWIW, the game is still not listed on the City Conference website, and King/Shorewood is now listed as taking place at 7 at South Stadium instead. Still listed on the Midwest Classic site however.
