Eli Underwood's musings on high school football in the Sunflower League
Went 6-0 last week and hoping to do it again this week! Also how is FS vs. OE not the game of the week Eli?! Any how here goes my week 3 picks:ONW @ SME - SME hasn't played the toughest of competition thus far, but have blown me away with their execution of the flexbone. Not sure if Mr. Showtime can single hand-idly stop the SME train like his mom thinks he can. SME wins by 20 give or take.ON @ SMN - Again, I really wish the Indians the best of luck this year. ON big.LHS @ SMW - With the match up of the year looming ahead of them next week, do we see a potential trap game for SMW? Nope. SMW big.OE @ FS - IMO the game of the week bar none. Also speaking of trap game, FS better not come out with the weak sauce they did last week. OE is a much faster and more skilled team than SMNW. I think Coach Lisher will have his boys ready to play and FS will be victorious. SMNW @ SMS - SMS are contenders everybody! Coming off a big win last week I fully expect the momentum to carry into this week against a SMNW team that is much tougher than people give them credit for. SMS wins.OS @ LV - As high as I am on Jason Randall, LV is the epitome of needing a good line to compliment skill in the back field. They don't and OS does. OS big.Good luck to all the players and coaches this week!

TheImpaler's week 3 picks: Last week (4-2), Season (10-2)LAW (0-2) @ SMW (2-0) On paper a complete mismatch. The Lions' anemic offense against a Vike D that looks like it may equal or exceed the 2006 squad. And a West offense that started to come alive last week with multi-catch games from four different receivers and the return of the much feared wildcat. The only thing that might keep this close is if the Vikes spend a lot of time working to establish more of a ground game. SMW 31 LAW 0SMN (0-2) @ ON (1-1) Best way to get better after a tough loss is to play the Indians. This game will give the Eagles a chance to work out some of the kinks. ON 51 SMN 10OE (1-1) @ LFS (2-0) 'Birds did not impress last week and take a big step up the competition ladder this week. Still I think Dineen at home is too much for Meyersball. The ugliest game in the league (green v. orange) goes green LFS 27 OE 17ONW (1-1) @ SME (2-0) The Lancers' third straight opponent who figure to be in the lower half of the final standings, I think the Lancs will continue to roll in this one. SME 38 ONW 14OS (1-1) @ LV (1-1) Falcons hugely the better team here and the south scatbacks will outdo Randall. Seurer should get back on track facing a much lesser secondary. Falcs roll. OS 41 LV 14 SMNW (0-2) @ SMS (1-1) Don't expect a lot of points in this one, both teams have shown they can play some D but Abdul will be enough in this one. SMS 13 SMNW 3
SME (better defense than smnw and they have an offense)ON (sorry SMN still not ready for prime time)SMW (LHS will struggle with W defense and offense)LFS (This is a tuff one, Do not think FS is as good as thought OE can move the ball but game is at LFS. Home field advantage here.)SMS (Injuries are mounting for SMNW and still NO offense this week.)OS (LV does not have horses to win this yet.)
SME over ONW...my only concern is that some of the guys are really, REALLY hyped up about this one-want to show Sherman he made a big mistake. Hope new coach can corral some of the emotion.ON over SMN...not much to talk about here.SMW over LHS...Vikings should handle the Lions.LFS over OE...FS escapes in what should be a highly entertaining game.SMS over SMNW...it certainly appears both have solid (or better) defenses but SMS has just a little more offense.OS over LV...but maybe not the blow out some think.Good luck to all the guys...play hard, stay healthy!And yeah, i remembered the Thursday game!!!
Always pick FS regardless. In this one, I see them finally playing for quarters and pulling away in the fourth. OE is a solid team on both sides of the ball and will test them, for sure. Go 'Birds!
Going for a few upsets, hell you have to if you want to win this thingSME (Most balanced team in the league in my opinion)ONLAW (no one else is picking them, so why the hell not)OE (I'm thinking Free State finally has to play a good team....another upset pick)SMSOS
Slugger picks week 3Got some snoopers this week. I don't expect any of the following games to be close.ON over SMNSME over ONWSMS over SMNWSMW over LAW. It won't be closeNow for this weeks marquis games:OS over LV. This will be an interesting game. A toss up but I'm giving the edge to the falcons OE over LFS. Game of the week. I look for OE to pull out the upset. OE ground attack will control the game and wear down the birdsPlay hard play smart. One heart beep

Let me correct you because I love to. Randal is a bada** player. His mom or whoever has a right to her opinion. Like she said she doesn't hide behind a nick name. Randal jr.did a great job getting doubled even triple teamed all night. For the record Raven nation agrees with her. He dish ragged those o-linemen the whole game. A win is a win so I give it to SME this time.
