I have a hard time seeing St. Cat's as anything but #2 in the Metro. Even with the losses, it'd take a massive step up from someone else to surpass them. I simply don't see any candidates to do that. Keep in mind they had such depth last year that they didn't suit up a single freshmen for the first time. So besides what's coming back there's probably a wild card or two with the incoming sophomores.
Union Grove should be competitive, but they did lose quite a bit to graduation and didn't have the depth in the junior class, so look for them to go young this year. Nash Wolf did see plenty of action at QB last year though.
Burlington never really recovered from losing Webley last year, but it did give them a chance to break-in some young talent. The Demons actually should be in pretty good shape with many contributors returning on each side of the ball.
With St Cats it’s a crapshoot. They lose so much that I had a hard time figuring out records. I was just trying to be realistic towards a team that loses that much.
Union Grove is in a weird spot for me, part of me thinks they’re going to be competitive but at the same time they did lose a lot.
as much as I want to see Burlington bounce back from losing Webley, they really don’t have much in the way of athleticism. I see this as a retooling season for Burlington.
