With a second straight impressive week at 10-2, Chucky Buckles proudly flaunts a 20-4 record after two weeks. Overall, that’s about 83% or a solid B- if he were back in school.


MICHIGAN CENTER @ GRASS LAKE: In an act seldom seen at the high school level, the entire Cardinals team parachutes into the stadium before the game to avoid the traffic congestion for what should be the area’s premier regular season matchup. Center’s flare for the big play – especially on offense – gives them the edge. Drum roll please… PICK: MICHIGAN CENTER

WESTERN @ LUMEN CHRISTI: Panther bus gets turned around and hopelessly lost on the new service road on their campus, causing fans to worry. Titan players offer to help, but only make it as far as McCarski’s Café before stopping for donut dots. PICK: LUMEN CHRISTI

VANDERCOOK LAKE @ MANCHESTER : Vandy battle cry of ‘rock chalk Jayhawk’ is quickly silenced when they realize a Flying Dutchmen is an old, old pirate ghost ship that may or may not still be sailing the seven seas looking for a port. A spooky old ghost ship always wins. PICK: MANCHESTER

HANOVER-HORTON @ ADDISON: The Comets are off to a 2-0 start and gaining confidence. Addison faithful hang ‘nothing to see here’ signs around town to throw H-H off the track. The plan doesn’t work. PICK: HANOVER-HORTON

JACKSON @ EAST LANSING: Vikings showed flashes last week in Promise Bowl defeat, but East Lansing is coming off a late loss to Grandville and will be primed to take their frustration out on somebody. Enter the Vikings… PICK: EAST LANSING

COLUMBIA CENTRAL @ HILLSDALE: Last year the Hornets didn’t lose a regular season game – this year they might find it hard to win one. What a difference a year (and a great senior class) makes. PICK: COLUMBIA CENTRAL

NORTHWEST @ MASON: This Mounties team could be one their faithful has been waiting for. But Mason, at least through two games, looks very, very good. Chucky is pulling for the Mounties, but his drive for pick-perfection overrides his heart. PICK: MASON

EAST JACKSON @ NAPOLEON: The game is delayed when there is a mutiny at Napoleon Bee Supply and the little fellas get out. An autumn chill helps, though, and things return to normal before kickoff. The Pirates celebrate with their first win of the season. PICK: NAPOLEON

CONCORD @ UNION CITY: I picked Concord to win in Week #1 and they lost. I picked Union City to win in Week #2 and they lost. I pick Union City to lose here, so therefore they will win and Concord will lose. Ah, forget it. PICK: CONCORD

QUINCY @ SPRINGPORT: The Spartans are coming off a tough, 3OT loss to Jonesville last week in a matchup that settled nothing about who was better. But beware the mighty Orioles, who have won their games by a combined 80-18. PICK: QUINCY

LESLIE @ PERRY: Blackhawks are off to a sluggish start in the post-Scott Farley era and haven’t scored a single point this season. The good news this week? They score! The bad  news? Perry scores more. PICK: PERRY

HOLTON @ REED CITY: If you’ve never heard of the Reed City Coyotes, here’s a tidbit: They’re really, really good. Here’s another: They’re the Coyotes! How cool is that? PICK: REED CITY
