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!

If I had known Stewart was going to be able to give it a go for the Chargers, I likely would have switched. Oh well, that's what great about this league...sometimes you just can't tell what the heck is going on.
This week appears to be a bit more straightforward, although Hillsdale is once
Well, I got a little cute with things last week...and the drag of it is the game I really believed in the most I didn't pick. Something about Tiffin over Hillsdale last week just hit me between the eyes...and I chickened out. What'cha gonna do?
Let's take another swipe here and see what we have this week.
Tiffin vs Wayne State - The Dragons stunned Wayne last year, but I think they caught them when D.J. Zezula was still figuring things out. Wayne has the ability to
