2007 Football Playoff Predictions, Week II

Maybe I can stay awake for the rest of the day. There's a special Thanksgiving lunch meal at the college.

I asked for the Zen special. Make me one with everything. Well, they did. The tryptophan hasn't kicked in yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it did later this afternoon.

Last week, I went 52-16 in my predictions for a .765 percentage, which is not as good as I was doing at this time last year. At any rate, here are my predictions for this week.

MHSAA Class 5A
Predicted Champion: South Panola

I'm picking the Tigers until they lose.

Go JA Raiders!!!

My 3rd grader has decided that the high school cheerleaders are 'hot' so suddenly we're more interested in football. :-)

JA's very good. The Raiders are going to have a tough time against Prep tonight. I've thought about going to the game, but am uncertain.
