We certainly could not live without more Bustos Edition.....
you guys too.
Martin Luther at Greenfield - Martin Luther has become the little school that could...unfortunately they lost a couple big pieces to the puzzle from last year, but should still be ok. This game is decidedly a toss up...Greenfield has done some good things with the lower levels which I always thought was the strength of Ringelberg...building enthusiasm and keeping players invested; could go either way, but history favors Martin Luther still.
West Allis Central at Racine St. Catherine's - Gutsy first game for a bigger school. St. Cats should roll though.
Lake Geneva Badger at Greendale - Joe Bustos always does two things...picks Greendale and speaks in the third person. Actually, Joe Bustos didn't do the second one two picks ago, but will always do the first. Joe Bustos thinks the panthers are in for a rough start...but that doesn't mean they can't win. Lots of depth at the skill positions it seems, but lots of questions at the line. Can they get it together? Yes. Yes they can.
Lakeland at Cudahy - I hear good things about Cudahy and I hear bad things about Cudahy. This game will be an indicator.
Sheboygan Falls at Brown Deer - The Jekyll/Hyde nature of BD has sadly been seemingly cured. Here's hoping for more Hyde, but the pick reflects continuation of Jekyll.
Whitnall at Burlington - This is a good first game for Whitnall...so good on them. Great first test, but not so sure it'll pan out.
Kewaskum at Milwaukee Lutheran - ML kind of what Brown Deer used to be...very on, but never as very off.
Shorewood/Messmer at Milwaukee King - Always a tough game to call...is MPS up? Is King up? Messwood has been consistent of late, so a close game bodes well for King. Love the early matchup of natural rivals.
Racine Park at South Milwaukee - Back to the future with Galewski back. This will be an interesting game.
New Berlin West at Elkhorn - The darkhorse reveals itself here.
Wisconsin Lutheran at Oak Creek - Wisco will start slow, but improve. Oak Creek should handle them here...but don't read too much into it.
Milwaukee Riverside at Pewaukee - Late game heroics shouldn't be needed here.
New Berlin Eisenhower at Plymouth - A tough adjustment after having a couple strong classes.
Kenosha Tremper at Pius XI - New staff at Pius seem to be all in...but I think it will take time to see the payoff.
Wow...I'm picking a horrid week for the woodland. Won't be at all surprised to see that I'm being optimistic here
