I guess all y’all ( including myself ) were wrong about McKinley’s ranking. I believe some comments were “the program is dead and never coming back”. In reality most Stark teams (except Massillon) were playing cream puffs and McK started with a tough road schedule plus they always struggle against Perry.

I think the Panthers might of had a little Jackson hangover early in the game tonight. The Leps threw a new wrinkle in tonight moving their WR to QB, their QB to tailback, running a modified I formation using the option as their main weapon, with their tailback throwing on several occasions. Came back and took the lead over a pesky Louisville team at the half 19-14. Rolled in the second half and had another scoring drive stopped on the Leopards 5 with a fumble In the fourth quarter. Panthers defense came up with 4 interceptions in the second half that helped turned the tide. No pick 6’s, but all but one ended up a scoring drive. Final 40-14.

My brief attempt to rank the league:

THE CONTENDERS
1. Lake -- They've shown defensive prowess and this might be their year. However this is a very tenuous #1 until next week.
2. McKinley -- They undoubtedly played the hardest schedule in the league and may assume the top spot in 7 days.
3. Perry -- Final team outside of Lake and McKinley with a realistic say in the ultimate champion(s).

THE REST
4. GlenOak -- I don't want to rank the Eagles this high, but I'm deferring to strength of schedule. Jax/GO will tell a lot next week.
5. Jackson -- The Bears probably shouldn't be this high either. They have complete games one week and then next they don't.
6. Green -- Have given up 206 points defensively. They're not bad, but that's not sustainable.
7. Hoover -- Against their only real competition they've faltered by a pair of 42-9 blowouts.

This will be mixed up again very shortly without a doubt.

McKinley's early games have never been a good indication of how they will end up. they historically always improve as the season goes on.
Lake being a smaller school generally has less depth at position and has often been hindered by injuries late in the season. Let's hope everyone is healthy and look forward to a very competitive game.

Drew Pasteur has the league teams ranked this way:

#45 Lake
#49 McKinley
#66 Perry
#137 Jackson
# 141 GlenOak
# 142 Green
# 145 Hoover

So, the top 3 teams are very close, and the other 4 are very close. I'm not sure there's a single league game left where anyone can say with even 80% certainty who will win. Amazingly, every single Federal League team has already won a league game.

FINALS:

Jackson 38 GlenOak 0
Hoover 24 Perry 14
McKinley 36 Lake 26
Louisville 27 Green 23 (!)

While McK/Lake is about what you'd reasonably expect, it sure doesn't seem like the other three games are what anyone called for...
