I picked Napoleon.

I think Napoleon should be favored again, too. Your reasons are, as a whole, stupid.

1) Napoleon is a wrestling town and WL basically takes the winter off.push
2) Top 3 players on each team are a push. Players 4-9, however, are much stronger for Napoleon. not even close, Illes, vasques, bell twice what nappy has, who would it be after SChartz and Wald?3) Jonah is twice the QB Bell is. Again, not even close, Bell is twice what Schartz is.
4) Napoleon beat WL on their own turf. If not for two turnovers deep in Warbird territory, they win by 30.Warbirds had nothing to really play for, now its for all the marbles
5) If it was a 3-on-3 basketball game, I'd take the Warbirds.True
6) If it was a fight, WL would be out before the end of the first round. Warbirds by 16
Napoleon in a laugher........
Plus Wald is "nursing a bad wheel" :(

If Napoleon is so bad why did they beat WL the last week of the season?

Well when I see predictions of a 40 point game I begin to wonder, and if W/L is "just better" why did Nappy beat them the last week of the season, and from what I heard it wasn't as close as the score made it sound.

if you call playing for a region championship and home field for the playoffs not worth winning for, you are an idiot

It was said earlier on that W/L had nothing to play for.....a Region Championship was on the line and an undefeated regular season at home. Now W/L has to go on the road to get to the championship game next week just like last season. IMO I feel that this game will go anyway, but I am going for the Warbirds. I feel that with the shootout last week they were in that the offense will keep going and the defense will be due for a good game, and what better team to have it against than Napoleon. Also, I've said it before....toughest thing to do in a football season is to beat a team TWICE.

just saw that now. That is total garbage. As a team you want to win as many things as possible, including region championships. You probably don't put up region 1 runner up banners in your gym. I'm sure Napoleon takes a lot of pride in winning 7 straight region titles. Also, Wyndmere to Napoleon is not a short drive, neither is Wyndmere to Cavalier, I'm sure they would have much rather played at home than driving the extra 6-800 miles or w/e it is.

Kids don't give a rip about that and you all know it, they were in the playoffs and at that time it is all that mattered, Coaches and AD's give a rip, kids don't, and if you don't beleive that you're an idiot....... :twisted:

If you don't care about winning a region title and the chance to host all playoff games until the dome you shouldn't be on the field.

If you are a professional i agree.......kids these days have enough to worry about, we don't need to put any more added stress on them, it will come soon enough.

Kids that are on perennial powers that have coaches stressing to them to win Region Titles, care about Region Titles - otherwise, kids care about making the playoffs and thats it. Once they get to that point, then they care about the State Title.

in fact some Organizations would rather lose than win to get to the right bracket!
Play real good team at home or play average on the road

Thats not how it works winner! If you win your region you play the other region's #4 seed if you take 2nd in your region you host the other's #3 seed! So ya see, if you win, you play a weaker team, you wise guy! Now, I hope WL wins by 40 also! And yes, witherspoon must be winners relative! :lol: :roll:
