Now, we're on to the second half. Races tighten, playoff talk ramps up. Man, this time of the year is fun! Last week wasn't exactly "chalk", but there weren't any major surprises either. Plenty of interesting games start to dot the schedule beginning next weekend. As for Week 7, most of this seems pretty straightforward and a lot of us seem to be picking pretty similarly:
Northwood vs Ohio Dominican
If this game were at Northwood, I may actually be inclined
Well, Gang, Saturday has us on the mid-point of the season. I've lamented for years when I was writing the column how sad it makes me that these seasons go by in the blink of an eye. Unreal.

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
All right, Gang...last week really was a bit on the "vanilla" side. If I can run the table, you know things were easy. This week, however, is LOADED with interesting contests. This is what makes the GLIAC so fun...I could point to at least half of these games where either team could win and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised.
Ferris State v Michigan Tech - Hard not be impressed with both clubs' performances last week. That said, Tech's outcome was far more in-line with
