Thank you sir! Let's see a little participation from the peanut gallery....

BA Black vs Bixby Blue- Good matchup here, would love to have some film on this game so if either of you coaches want to swap film get at me.  BA Black is big up front, and looked pretty well in mid season form running their offense from what I saw in the scrimmages.  Over all I think Bixby Blue could win this game, but number of players will take its toll and that could possibly let things get out of hand.  Something tells me the Bixby coaches are more interested in getting every kid on their team better and these non-division games don't "matter" in the play-off picture, so they may run the second team out more than most.  And i completely respect them for it! BA takes it home by 2 scores.

BA Orange vs Union Silver- Union Silver has firepower, size and speed across the board.  Too much for BA Orange to handle.  That BA line will give it 100 though! Union Silver by 3 scores

BA Gold vs Owasso Red- I picked Ored to make the dance so I'm not going to start off by picking against them now.  Honestly BA Gold is a playoff team in Div 1 as well, so this could be an interesting matchup.  BA wins the size matchup, but I think Ored has the speed.  If Ored can tackle well and swarm the ball I think they might capitalize on a few mistakes and take this one.  Ored 16-15

BA Platinum vs Jenks Silver- Having not seen much of BA platinum besides one scrimmage, they look to be lacking in size up front.  They played hard but I'm just not sure they can slow down 42.  Silver needs to gang tackle, gang tackle, gang tackle, and gang tackle some more.... Silver by 2 scores

Sand Springs vs Owasso Black- Were gonna roll down 412 and be prepared for a good football game.  May the best team win

Jenks White vs Bixby White- GOTW- Man o man what a matchup out of the gate! I almost went Bixby on this one and I had to break it down.  I think the lines are pretty well even, I think Bixby wins at QB and possibly WR, but I have to give the ground attack for Jenks white the nod.  That leaves two even teams and if I rank overall defense, I think Jenks white has the edge so give me the Div 1 team by 1 score in a heck of a season opener!

Union Black vs Muskogee- This one is intriguing, having seen both teams play.  Muskogee has playmakers all over and really nice size on the line.  I think the redskins can hang with the roughers early but a few mistakes break to the Gee late.  Muskogee by 2 scores in a fast paced one

Union Red vs Jenks Maroon- I think Maroon went winless last season in AA, but you couldn't tell by watching them in the scrimmages.  Hats off to the coaches and players cause they certainly looked ready to play in the contests I got to watch.  My money is on Red though, and it rides with #10.  If he is under 150lbs, he takes this one over and finds the EZ 3-4 times to put Union ahead at the final whistle by 2 scores.

Bonus Game of the Week- Owasso HS vs Bixby Hs in the zero week battle of the burbs at chapman stadium!  I may live to regret this since I do actually live in Bixby.... But Owasso brings the blitz early and often in a barn burner, 45-42(I will be wearing my spartans gear under my rams stuff in case it gets out of hand and this post has been programmed to self destruct at half time if Bixby has a huge lead....

Pretty sad amount of participation in the pick ems fellas. Shameful really. You know when you are part of the peanut gallery next year watching 8th grade that you will look back on times like these and wish you could do it all differently. Donít let that be your reality

BA Black vs Bixby Blue - Bixby Blue is much improved. That was inevitable when HCLM got more involved. Unfortunately they get big bad BA Black right out of the gate. BA by 2+ TDs

BA Orange vs Union Silver - I haven't seen U-silver yet, but I think I saw Orange.

BA Gold vs Owasso Red - Rolling with BA Gold on this one

BA Platinum vs Jenks Silver - Silver's going to make the playoffs and that means you have to win these types of games

Sand Springs vs Owasso Black - O-Black is massive up front and 23 plays angry. SS is much improved and also quite large up front, but they'll need to tackle much better this time around to keep it close. heads up to the O-Black kid that broke his leg last week. My son similar injury in the 1st scrimmage last year. Hang in there kid!

Jenks White vs Bixby White - looking forward to a dog fight. Bixby is 2-0 against JW since 3rd grate, but both games were low scoring battles. I'm expecting some fireworks this time around. Bring your hard hat. This game will feature some hitting!
Will Allin be A) in the pressbox B) top row of Trimble or C) field level with his pool poll?

Union Black vs Muskogee - Too many athletes for Muskogee.

Union Red vs Jenks Maroon - Tough draw to start the year for the Maroon Trojans. they'll be much improved but they better bring their A game if they plan to contain #10.

BA Black vs Bixby Blue-BA  Bixby blue is very much improved this year. Watching them in practice get all 30 kids involved is impressive. That said BA black is huge and fast. They are probably gonna be a little too much for most everyone this season. Their DE is a freak show.

BA Orange vs Union Silver- Union Silver by quite a bit.

BA Gold vs Owasso Red- BA Heard gold was out to get everyoneís attention this season so Iím gonna pick Ďem.

BA Platinum vs Jenks Silver- Silver in a close one.

Sand Springs vs Owasso Black - Oblack by a lot. They are very solid at almost every position and adding Fiveash boy helped a lot! Sand springs is much improved and will hit you this year so not gonna be a first half scoreboard.

Jenks White vs Bixby White- On paper we have always been better than Jenks. This year we are really close in talent. . My boys better be ready. Jenks white is gonna be hungry!  Wiltshire is the best youth coach Iíve been around and I donít think anyone else is close.  We have to be prepared to make several adjustments. We have several playmakers and I think they will come up with some big plays for us. Gonna be a great game against my Jenks white friends to get warmed up for the season.

Union Black vs Muskogee- Really like the Muskogee coach. He will have his boys ready to roll.

Union Red vs Jenks Maroon- If 10 can run the ball scoreboard. If not red in a close one.

Bonus Game of the Week- Owasso HS vs Bixby 
Bixby turns off the scoreboard.

NMyers- I used to struggle with this too and still do at times, but pick ems are probably the best way to gauge the direction a particular team is trending if everyone is really trying to use their best guess on the outcomes.  I don't see how any coach could get mad about a little prognostication if its well thought out and no one is trashing their squad.  But I completely understand your mind set there.

Heck I feel the same with the BW vs JW matchup.  Both coaches have my utmost respect and yes JW15 I will be on the top row in the shade with my camera(no pool poles allowed) following the action.  I had to sweet talk my way in the booth for last years playoff showdown in trojan land, and the things I had to do to get in there should never be spoken of again. 

After watching Bixby dismantle my Rams last night I may flip flop on the white trojans... Montgomery might be putting something in the water fountains at the strength and conditioning facility. Those spartans played tough and damn near everyone was jacked!

BA Black vs Bixby Blue. Have to stick with my team BA Black but it wonít be easy Bixby Blue looks tough this year.

BA Orange vs Union Silver. Sticking with BA on this one. Orange is hard to deal with up front and I think if those guys can impose their will they have a chance to win the game.

BA Gold vs Owasso Red.  Rolling with gold, they have a ton of talent and will be a tough matchup for anyone.

BA Platinum vs Jenks Silver. I want to pick BA but I have to go with Jenks Silver. They have added some nice athletes and looked good at the scrimmages.

Sand Springs vs Owasso Black. Owasso Black should take care of business here.  Iíll take them by multiple scores.

Jenks White vs Bixby White. GOTW, the Champion is gone so I guess the runner up is the next man up, Iím picking Bixby white by less than a score.

Union Black vs Muskogee. Going with Muskogee, they looked solid at the scrimmages and have good size and athleticism.

Union Red vs Jenks Maroon. Number 10 is the X-factor, he is a problem for every team. Union wins this one.
