Predictions for 2010: Thumbs down

Published 4:38pm Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Good afternoon Brewton area sports fans. I hope your Wednesday has been a good one and the rest of your week will be as well.

Well, as you all may know, the football season for our area teams has not got off to a good start. Overall, we are 0-4 with T.R. Miller and W.S. Neal both being 0-2 to start the season.

If my research is correct, this is the first time since 1989 that both teams are winless together to start the season.

Hopefully our teams can get that straight this Friday night as they are both at home in region play. T.R. Miller will have the better shot at a win as they take on the Excel Panthers while W.S. Neal limps into week three having been shutout 82-0. Welcome, or should I say not welcome, the Jackson Aggies into town this week who topped class 4A as the No. 1 team in today’s ASWA poll. On a side note, Jackson beat W.S. Neal 52-0 last year.

In our preseason football guide this year, I made my second annual picks for how I thought the season would go. Well, lets just say it has not been a good year for me either.

I said W.S. Neal would be 1-1 right now and they are 0-2 and I said T.R. Miller would be 2-0 right now and they are the opposite. Just to make myself feel better, I did say the games could go the other way then I had predicted which is obvious. Did that change things or make me feel any better? No!

Anyways, I want to wish all our teams the best of luck this week in their games.

Here is a link of two pickers on ESPN of how they see the bowl projections to go after week one of the college season. I like to see how the projections go from week to week.

Anyways, until we meet again here or out in the world of sports, God bless.
