We warned everyone back before Labor Day...we love these football seasons, but boy do they go by fast! Saturday marks the midway point already, and there are still a lot of things to be decided. While Wayne and Hillsdale have avoided (league) blemishes to this point, they still have some tall tasks (including facing each other) remaining. As for the rest of the league, playoff opportunities are still alive for a few teams, but most of them still have to play each other (and many still have to
I mentioned being uneasy about the Wayne pick at Northern, and apparently I had a right to be as the Warriors nearly fell victim to the "SuperiorDome Swoon".
