But I actually came on here to give you a hard time Harry...Usually your pick are pretty accurate but you had a rough time this week.
Absolutely a tough week in terms of the eight games I put down in these spaces . 500 after two weeks is the worst start I have had for sure the last few going against the line . I had another small handful that I jotted down and did better in those but they weren't interesting games so I didn't t write about them . I left off Watterson who I liked over Marion Local but inadvertently omitted that one as well as New Albany Scioto where I liked NA by a small amount laying 2 . 4-6 looks better than 2-6 lol but 9-9 is what is in these spaces for the season and is Below MEH.
Some weird occurrences to be sure with the information I had , but it's 16-18 year old kids , week to week ? At half time of the games I was looking great, 4th quarters hurt teams , but that's why you need some depth and need good coaches making adjustments . Watching classmates and getting in late in blowouts if you are a good player must be tough but that will be the reality for many a good PC kid coming up with so much talent . No other school has this problem in CO public sphere . If you are good at other schools ? You will start at some point guaranteed , Not at PC . PN a larger school than PC went without a Frosh team one year? Do they have one this year ? At PC they have a two deep that is scary I heard . Role player or scrub player it is for many PC kids I suppose . Not sure you see this dynamic anywhere else anywhere in a two HS district . Numbers should be closer than this.
Some weeks you lose turnover battles badly lose the weird bad snaps badly and just some head scratching results . For instance I have seen PN and Northmont up close , Northmont wasn't better , but they were obviously last night , Coffman really bottled them up without their two best defensive backs last week . Hammond Russell an emerging beast at DE for Coffman was un-blockable for Northmont to deal with. I figured Sawyer would be too. Coffman picked them off twice . I figured North would get some turnovers . 5 Interceptions ? Yikes.
