Each week Frank Vajcner and Chris Schultz give their thoughts on the MHSAA games. Frank is usually serious, Chris not so much.
Airport: “Demons begone and the drought is over!” That was probably what some Jets fans were thinking after winning a district for the first time since 2005. Real test comes next.
Carlson: Marauders made Gary and I eat crow. And they probably also uttered, “Demons begone and the drought is over!”
Flat Rock: Rams Rick-rolled Summit. Might they be able to get to Ford Field after Notre Dame Prep got knocked out?
Riverview: I guess Rouge has figured out how to stop the T.
SMCC: A gritty, gutty, resilient effort comes up short. But it’s not anything to hang heads over.
Whiteford: Bobcats get tested in a rematch. The reward is another rematch with White Pigeon in The Woods.
Much like I said with Ida, SMCC isn’t going away anytime soon.
Round 2 was pretty wild around the state
Where will I end up for regionals? Should I do another fan vote?
Thanks again to all who participated in my fan vote.
I will keep banging the drum for a certain former head coach turned analyst to take a job in East Lansing.
I would’ve liked for Brad Holmes to get Aidan Hutchison some help, but 6-2 at the bye week isn’t anything I can be mad about
For the record, this guy went a cool 6-0 this week. While I can’t break down the film like some guys I do have a lil’ knowledge (slot left, jet, wham right, bootleg left, safety burn) so I’ll keep my overall lead against the “other guys” at least for a week.
Airport: Keep playing defensive like that Jets and you will be tough to beat.
Carlson: I hope Jason Gendron is getting some Coach of the Year” talk amongst coaching and media circles.
Flat Rock: I’m sure Ram Athletic Supervisor John Clair is savoring this win over Summit Academy more than most people. (maybe only him and I know why)
Riverview: I suggested that the Bucs needed to play the perfect game, I’m not sure if that would have mattered against Rouge.
SMCC: This game was closer than I expected.
Whiteford: Don’t expect me to pick against the Bobcats any time soon.
I was down in Venice Florida to catch a big game last night and was not disappointed. The Venice Indians defeated Clearwater International 51-42. After counting, there were over 25 players between both teams with Division 1 offers or commitments. I’m not sure if I have ever seen players with commitments to USC, Florida State, Colorado, Washington State, Notre Dame and others on the same field simultaneously. With that said, the players we cover every week play just as hard and the coaches are just as good as the players and coaches down here. Yes, Aidan Hutchinson was sitting in the seat in front of me on the plane to Fort Myers. No I didn’t pull a Frank and get a pic.
Sorry for any technical difficulties we had last night. I think too many visitors messed up the site. That’s a good problem to have. We will get it fixed.
