    If you are giving picks you can’t have TBD!!!!!!!
    That’s not how it works.

    8A - LWE over Warren (This is a tough game to pick - Warrens defense will punch you in the face....then go punch your Mom in the face..LOL)
    7A - Naz (This is a very good Class of Teams, so it wont be easy)
    6A - Prairie Ridge (They play a game that can keep the ball away from ESL's offense)
    5A - Montini - (They might make it look easy)
    4A - Columbia
    3A - Fiarfield
    2A - Nashville
    1A - Central A&M (Seriously good team)

    No ones remembering the close game Sycamore gave Montini last year and they went 8-1 this year
    Don’t sleep on them. Sterling will be a tough out too at home their first two games but if Saint Rita comes out of Sterling with a win I’m guessing they will be your a state champion in 5A (this is assuming Sterling and Rita win 1st round)

    St Rita and JCA are the hottest teams in 5a. Sycamore is a wild card. Great team especially at home.

    Where should JCA be? They played exactly 1 game against an 8A school this season and every other game against 6A schools or below. On the flip side, MC played in a division where every other team is in 8A, add in MS and MC played 4 of their 8 in state games against 8A teams, yet our enrollment puts us in 7A and no one is hollering about it.
    JCA’s enrollment puts them in 5A, they are in a conference that has teams that span every class so there are bound to be games they play against higher class teams in the regular season.

    Montini beat St. Rita by 2 scores already this year. Nice try. Montini is the clear favorite.

    I really did want to leave it alone but I just couldn’t. It’s like that last drink you have at the end of a long night, you know your gonna feel it in the morning but the bartender already opened the beer so you might as well drink it.

    Don't think Montini could beat St Rita twice. Rita a better team now. Just look at the ND games.

    Wassup....you are consistent. You use this same schtick every year regarding your Broncos.

    St. Rita is still too young. Montini experience last year serves them well vs the young Mustangs.

    Replace St. Rita with JCA and rewind the clock 12 months. Exact same posturing was going on here and look what that got the Broncos.

    Yes, a senior heavy group.
    Understood. I was wondering if it was going to be 3 weeks of this. Good luck and good health Broncos this weekend!

    And if the stars align and we meet again, we can posture that week. Too many good teams in 5A north to even entertain that scenario at this point.

    Only loss is to a good 7A DeKalb team on the road. 5 shutouts and only 39 points given up all year. I suspect this might be one of their best teams of recent vintage, and they've given Montini problems in the past. Plus, the second round game would be at Sycamore, if it happens. Is this the year they finally slay the Montini dragon?

    LA (I doubted them once. Never happening again. Very young but extremely talented team. They have been in the finals 6 out of 8 years and are the defending champs.)

    MC (young team too and will dominate 7A for the next few years)

    ESL (no doubt. All gas no breaks)

    Rita (this team is good. Been saying it all year. KB and the Reeters roll)

    That will be 3 CCLB teams. Not too shabby.

    Sterling left the NIB 12 and Sycamore picked up 2 small schools that play 3 or 4 A so any good team would have blown out Plano and Sandwich, Ottawa was horrible this year, quality wins were Morris and Kaneland, regardless Sycamore is well coached and always has good line play and defense. I would expect a similar game as last year against Montini with Montini having the edge having played tougher opponents. I would love to see a Sterling Sycamore semi final as the two teams became rivals when Sterling was in NIB 12 but Saint Rita and Montini will probably be the favorites.

    I play the hot team at the end of the year just like I play the hot goaltender at the end of the year like hockey.

    If you look at the ND game Montini got spanked and Rita beat ND. Montini possibly has to play at Sycamore. This is a 50/50 or 55/45 game in favor of Sycamore.

    That's why I pick Rita to win state over JCA which will likely be a one point game.

    I think the team that wins five games in a row in each class will lay claim to the best in each class. But it’s only a rumor I’ve heard
