Hoosier Conference Week 1 Pick 'Em

Recommended Posts

Well I think Nowlin is still gonna make me do this. I will have to prepare, which I promise you I haven't done. The person doing the pick 'em never wins. I think that is how I got roped into this, since they wanted the only 3 TIME CHAMP to take the commish struggles!

On to the games!

1 Point Games

  • Lafayette Jeff @ Lafayette Central Catholic - The Turmoil on Teal kicks off.  Yes, the odds say Jeff, the size says Jeff, the depth says Jeff, the Ghost of LaRocca says, "Remember the Immaculate Interception."  LCC with a end-of-game TD to kick off another needed in-town rivalry.  If it were a 3-pointer, I'd take Jeff, but at 1-point, it's certainly worth the risk ... and the surprise value.
  • Kankakee Valley @ Rensselaer - Coach Nowlin and team start off the season on the the right foot.  Consolation prize for KV ... Wagonmasters on the way out of town.
  • Lewis Cass @ Pioneer - 1A is Pioneer's to lose this season.  So is their whole schedule.  Pioneer by several TDs.
  • Madison Grant @ Tipton - Tipton with a strong showing to contend for the HC East.  This game is a good chance to work out any kinks before HC play.  Tipton in control the whole game.
  • North Montgomery @ Benton Central - BC works on a building year, but North Montgomery is just a bit stronger in this one.  North Montgomery by a couple TDs. 
  • Twin Lakes @ Culver Academy - Coach tells the players that they'll stop off at Culver's after the game for dinner.  The players can be heard complaining, "Gotta travel north and we don't even get Wagonmasters?"  Coach relents and promises to take the long way home through RCHS territory to get Wagonmasters after the game.  The guys have Wagonmasters on the brain and drop one to C(M)A; succumbing to C(M)A's South American exchange  student soccer player who gives C(M)A a three FG victory.

2 Point Games

  • Clinton Central @ Northwestern - Cats and dogs, but the cats are bigger.  Northwestern sends a message that, while the road to the HC East might run through the town of Tipton, the Blue Devils have to go through them.
  • Frankfort @ Western - Will be a close game, but I'll take the HC team in this one.  The Russiavillites ... or is that Russiavillians ... take one from the Hot Dogs.  Will there be Trump sightings in RUSSIAville?  Lord, I apologize for that.
  • Hamilton Heights @ Mount Vernon Fortville - MV-F has a national ranking of 2,416.  Unfortunately, for Heights, they are ranked 9,545.  MV-F got some "Others getting votes" in the GID pre-season poll and look to break into the Top 10 perhaps. 

3 Point Game

West Lafayette @ Tri-West - After the game, Karlaftis gets an offer from the Bears.  Decides to stick with the better offers from the D1 schools.

Lafayette Jeff @ Lafayette Central Catholic

About time these 2 played. Jeff in a close one.

Kankakee Valley @ Rensselaer

Renssy looks primed for another big year. 

Lewis Cass @ Pioneer

Cass should be much improved but Kiser and company is too much.

Madison Grant @ Tipton

Blue Devils should put up some big numbers in this one.

North Montgomery @ Benton Central

Hoping Bc can eventually get this thing turned around. 

Twin Lakes @ Culver Academy

TL lost a lot of talent. 

2 Point Games

Clinton Central @ Northwestern

Cardwell runs wild on the new turf in this one.

Frankfort @ Western

Western is going to have a nice year this year lead by 4 year QB Knepley.

Hamilton Heights @ Mount Vernon Fortville

Ive heard HH is struggling to find a QB plus are very young at the other skill spots. Could be a rebuilding year for the Huskies.

3 Point Game

West Lafayette @ Tri-West

Who is taking over at QB for WL? I'll take the Greek Freek and Red Devils in this one.

Going wit dem Chos. It feels weird hedging my bet against the Knights who say NEE especially week 1.

Kankakee Valley @ Rensselaer

You can't say Bomb in an airport. Bomb Bomb Ba Bomb!

Lewis Cass @ Pioneer

With my third pick of a team who rocks black as a primary color. Sorry I had a fight in the middle of you're Black Panther Party.

Madison Grant @ Tipton

How can two US presidents with no Scottish ancestry be Argylls? If Chewbacca is a wookie... Blue Devils win. 

North Montgomery @ Benton Central

Recent history hasn't been kind to the Bizun in this one. Learning my historical lessons.

Twin Lakes @ Culver Academy

The eight ball said, "Reply hazy try again", "Better not tell you now", "Concentrate and ask again", "Ask again later".
Dang it woman just answer my question, your indecision irks me. I know what I must do. Tell you what I want to eat, but that I don't really want to eat, so you can tell me I'm wrong and end up eating in the same restaurant you always what to go to.

2 Point Games

Clinton Central @ Northwestern

The upside down U still looks like an upside down U. Two Us are a Double U, wait... Double U, W. Just saying. Too much Purple Cat for a Kelly Green Dog.

Frankfort @ Western

Both have been down for a minute, but have had their storied pasts. Both have new coaches at the helm. Panthers on a hunch/gut call.

Hamilton Heights @ Mount Vernon Fortville

I have a tough time going with Fortville here, and against the Huskies in an opening week. Plus I know absolutely nothing about them and want to put as little effort into this pick as possible.

3 Point Game

West Lafayette @ Tri-West

Square the Wagons! I'll take all the Wests except the exclusionary Westward pick.

Confucius says: the journey to a winless season begins with a single game

NW hasn't lost to cc since a Bush was in the white house...doesn't look like that's changing anytime soon
