(Sorry I got this same thing posted on last week's picks, so re-posting in the right place)
First off, I do not have a 'dog in this fight' so my perspective is fairly neutral. Looks like No Excuses is either from Sanderson or a fan and it is pretty obvious that BEARS is a Balmorhea faithful. I have seen every team in this district in person at least one time and some more than that. 'No Excuses' probably has the winners pretty well 'nailed' but would have to respectfully disagree with his spread on the BV/Sanderson game. BV is a much better team than anyone has given them credit for, including Mr. Huntress' computer rankings. This one really should not be close and Sanderson will prevail, but 58-6 is probably a 'reach'. On the other hand, BEARS prediction would seem to be wishful thinking after the scare encountered last week against BV. BV by 16 or over at half? hard time believing that this will happen. Based on observations since way back in August, Sanderson now appears to clearly be the 2nd most talented team in this district and anybody that keeps up with the district has no trouble identifying the most talented team (GFR). Everyone who follows 6 man football knows that anything can happen on any given night, but as most predicted before the season began, next week's Sanderson/Balmorhea game will likely 'tell the tale' of how the district will 'shake out' in the end.
