Week 9 Results and What I Learned

It was the top 4 in the WCAL vs the bottom 4 in the WCAL, and there were no surprises there or anywhere else in the area. The most fun was had watching the Buckeyes just trample Rutgers, and then watch all the college football pundits across the nation and all across the media backtrack on the Buckeyes.

Chippewa @ Hillsdale

While Chippewa may have lost last week in a tight one to Smithville, the Smithies are no slouch. Hillsdale isn’t either, though.

Pick: Chippewa.
