I've never seen (nor has anyone) MSML lose a D VII game. Until it happens, they are the favorite . Plus, that little win over Anna is probably the most impressive win in the MAC this year (hindsight being 20/20). I will give credit where credit is due, though. Patrick Henry looks pretty good. I like them to knock off Leipsic this week. And I from what I hear, they could give anyone in D VII a run for their money. However, it is the playoffs. Anything is possible.Anna is very, very good no doubt about that. It is no secret their playoff success has been less than desired. They thought joining the MAC would give them tougher competition in season to prepare them for the playoffs and I think this is the year they make their name and I hope they do. Would LOVE to add another school to the Championship Pedigree of the conference.
Anna really is the conference's best shot at a title this year. MSML is a shadow of themselves and should have been beaten last week and I have seen much better MSML teams get beat in the playoffs.
I have no dog in the D VI fight. I think its really neat to see the backing of the other MAC teams that have been knocked off to support them, though. And if they were to win state, then well deserved. They have had a very fine year for sure.
