Eli Underwood's musings on high school football in the Sunflower League
I'm going with Leavenworth over SMN. Other picks to come tomorrow. I,m looking for several unexpected results this weekend. Stay tuned.
My picks for the weekSMWLEVLHSLFSOEONSmith vs. Chambers (low body fat vs. a factory outlet worth of name brands--see pic), a really great matchup but SMW has way to much talent to let this slip awayLeavenworth at home needs a big win against North anything else is inexcusable.The Chesties will bounce back against SME at home, a tough week of practice has the boys fired up and ready for the home opener.Hoping for a cool night and an easy breeze for the 26 championship flags to wave against!Free State will RollOlathe East will be to much for Byers +10 to handleON vs. SMS to me may be the closest matchup of the week, if the boys up front can get the three yd push, Triplett could have a big night
LEV wins tonight
TheImpaler's week 2 picks: Last week (6-0), Season (6-0)SME (1-0) @ LAW (0-1) Pre-season I thought this would go the Lions' way but both teams lost a ton of talent and it's hard to pick. I'm tempted to change but 3/4 of the games I missed last year were games I got right in my pre-season work up then changed so I'm going to stay the course and go with the home team in a shootout. LAW 35 SME 31LFS (1-0) @ SMNW (0-1) The Firebirds continue their very soft early season schedule but one has to wonder if they'll be ready for their games 3-5 with no real competition the first two weeks. LFS 42 SMN 14SMN (0-1) @ LV (0-1) The Hopeless Bowl? Probably the Indians only chance for a win this year but Randall is too much for them. LV 28 SMN 14ONW (1-0) @ OE (0-1) Ravens barely escaped a pretty bad Coug squad last week, while the Hawks got nipped by a sloppy ON team. Can the Ravens get a win over a district opponent? I don't think they're there yet. OE 26 ONW 17SMS (0-1) @ ON (1-0) Raiders gave the Vikings all they could handle last week but couldn't put points on the board. Vikings gained yards but couldn't score much either. The Eagles were able to overcome some special team problems. Tempting upset special - This is the kind of game the Raiders need to win to move up the standings but not this week I think. ON 24 SMS 19OS (1-0) @ SMW (1-0) Vikings D was great last week and Seurer was awesome. I think Maloney Wade and Hobbs will make it much tougher on him this week and South will not be able to get the big pass plays. Also expect Pembridge and Spight to be in Seurer's lap all night. The question is can the Vikes get in sync on offense against a South D that looked a little porous last week vs. a very inexperienced Lawrence offense? I'm hoping so. SMW 24 OS 13
LAWLFSLVOEONSMWIMO, a couple of these are real toss-ups.
FS - Large. Only question, how long will the first stringers go to prep for the tougher games ahead? They only played the first half last week. Would like to see them play 3 quarters, or even be challenged to see how they respond. Go 'Birds!
SMELFS LV OE ON SMW
Remember, it will be Friday the 13th, so everyone should pick at least one upset. Strange things can happen... (insert spooky noises)... Go 'Birds!

Slugger picks week 2Easy ones firstLFSS over SMNW. Could LFS have an easier opening two weeks?LV over SMN. SME over LAW. Not impressed with LAW last week. Too many mistakes. OE over ONW. Hawks pull away lateNow the tough picks:SMW over OS. Last week Os was impressive and SMW was not. Still SMW is the defending champ and I'm sticking with them until they lose. My guess is all will be disappointed in the chambers - smith byline. Due to the positions they both play, there will be few head to head match ups of the big boys.Best game of the week - ON over SMS. This is a toss up but always give the edge to Gene Weir.Good luck boysOne heart beep
SMN @ LV - I wish SMN the best this year but another no win season is looking very likely. Leavenworth with relative ease.OS @ SMW - Very close to calling an upset here. OS showed a lot of promise last week against LHS and SMW seemed to struggle a bit offensively against a stout SMS team. SMW pulls it out but it will be close.SME @ LHS - I am a huge supporter of the flexbone and was impressed with the success SME had last week with it. That being said LHS has more talent that people think. I'm taking SME in a shootout.FS @ SMNW - FS wins 30+ONW @ OE - It'll be interesting to see how Myers run first mentality will fair against God's gift to football aka Randal Byers...(Crickets). OE wins big.SMS @ ON - This is game of the week 1A in my book. ON has talent for days as we're all aware of, however, SMS is my sleeper this year and showed that they are a serious contender this season. SMS pulls it out in VERY good, close game.Good luck to all the players and coaches with week!
Leav vs SMN- We will find out how bad SMN is this year. Leav needs to show well or they may be second in the cellar dwellar battle. Leav 24 SMN 7FS @ SMNW- Free State Rolls on. Lets see how good Dineen is against a decent team ( Compared to SMN). Could tell us more about Free State. FS 35 SMNW 14SME @ Lawrence This game is a scary pick for me. I'm going with SME because I think so much of the new offense. Young lawrence team will have trouble defending it. Flexbone rules. SME 30 LAW 17ONW @ OE Believe it or not. Jeff Myers may have been woken up last week. I would't be surprised to see 30% passing this weekend. That will make OE a better team. OE 27 ONW 17SMS @ ON These picks are all predicated on my belief that SMW is down from all expectations. SMS not as good as the first week results. I guarantee ON worked on special teams extra this week. ON 24 SMS 17OS @ SMW Those of you guys that want to pick the upset here should have. Jake Suerer is the real deal on both sides of the ball. Cover two over the top will stop Maloney. OS in the upset OS 27 SMW 21

Hey Imp, in the sake of fairness in the pick standings, Seth and Pubhouse Nation are one and the same, for some reason when I logged in the first week, it came up under my first name and not my google handle.Thanks Go Lions!
I emailed Eli with my picks because of situational issues and i have this feeling that i zoned out and sent only liek two picks... hm anyways for what its worth i went 3-3 (i picked OS, Lawrence, and ON)
Pubhouse, I'll combine you with Seth. EagleSenior if Eli will confirm he got them before kickoff, I'll add yours in.
Alright, i do have this weird feeling i only sent like the LFS game and maybe some more so that would be best >.>
