Thanksgiving Football Picks, 11/27/13

It’s time for my annual rant against Thanksgiving games as the majority of the Shore Conference gets ready to wrap up the season.

In short, they have to go. They have become the primary roadblock to a legitimate playoff system that crowns Group champions rather than having 24 teams say they are state champions

Week Nine Football Picks

I can’t seem to shake these four-loss weeks, as this is the part of the year where it becomes harder to decipher which teams that are out of the playoff running are still going hard and which ones have mailed in their seasons

Week Eight Football Picks

I am in a gradual decline to finish the season and had another subpar week last week, so we’ll see if I can pull out of a tailspin in the exercise of futility known as my picks.

We could see the first division titles (or at least ties for them) get clinched this week, and there are some crucial games as far as playoff seedings go

Week Six Football Picks

Last week was one of my most mediocre prognostication weeks of the season, so it’s time to start rounding into playoff form as we head into the second half of the season.

As far as division title races go, the Central at Barnegat game is a big one in Class B South this week, while Lacey, Jackson Memorial and Brick look to remain unbeaten in Class A South in a free-for-all for that championship

It’s going to be a soggy Week Five, so we’ll see if the rain and field conditions have any type of significant effect on the outcomes, although the forecast for Saturday is much better now.

Twelve teams have byes this week, so it’s a fairly light schedule highlighted by No

Football: Week Four Picks

Kind of a mediocre showing for me last week as I lost some toss-up games in A South and B North.

This week could either be tremendous or a train wreck given the number of toss-up games and high-profile showdowns on the schedule
