Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference
Almost a perfect week last week. Honest to God, once I realized that I had misread the schedule (yeah, bright guy over here) and realized Wayne was AT Ohio Dominican and not at home I logged in to change my pick. Nitzche's "the first reaction is usually the correct one" hit me, and I chickened-out on executing the alteration. Oh well. Thanks again to svsu for running the game for us this year. Far to kind of you!
Not like this week is super easy. Why start with simple picks
Much like when I wrote the GLIAC Blog, I have always maintained that digging too deeply into potential playoff scenarios prior to Week 11 is simply not worth it. There are simply WAY too many variables involved, particularly when there are weeks worth of games still to be played. So, now that we're down to the final Saturday of the season, it is a BIT easier to try and take a stab or two:
1) - Grand Valley - 10-0
In my view, the Lakers are the only team that is 100% in the
Two weeks to go, Gang. Looks like the weather is going to be great again...playing with house money at this point, folks. Get out and see a game!
Will post some thoughts next week on the playoffs. Again, still way too much that can happen and there likely still will be next week. BUT, with only one game to go it makes it a little easier to give some semi-legit "if-then" statements.
Wayne State vs Ohio Dominican
Fun...let's get started with
HoooooBoy...things are getting fun now, aren't they Gang! We're rounding the final quarter poll, first sets of seedings are out. All kinds of fun going around! As I have mentioned elsewhere, I'll take a stab at the playoff stuff but won't do it until we head into Week 11. Just WAY too many goofy things that can happen between now and then, and we've seen a ton of nuttiness even happen during Week 11 some seasons. Just too many variables between now and then.
As for this weekend,
With four weeks to go, there is a whole lotta interesting still to come. A couple of league leaders have some heavy hitters left on the slate, and a few folks still hanging around in potential playoff contention have contests remaining that could earn them a spot. Of course, the league title itself is still up for grabs, so as if the games themselves weren't interesting enough there is plenty of drama attached to them. On to Week Eight!
