Predictions: It’s Carrollton’s time to dethrone the champions

Six games this week match teams that are undefeated in region play going head to head for region championships, and three more of those matchups will decide subregion titles. The biggest is in 5-AAAA, where I expect Carrollton to dethrone defending region and state champion Sandy Creek. Also go with Mary Persons over Veterans (2-AAAA), Monroe Area over Chestatee (8-AAAA), Carver-Columbus over Peach County (2-AAA), Dublin over Laney (3-AA) and Calhoun over Model (7-AA). And expect Statesboro, Grady and Cedartown to win their subregions and advance to next week’s region championship games.

THE WEEKEND PREDICTIONS

Last week: 162-29 (.848); Overall: 1,322-312 (.809)

This set of “predictions” is tamer than the other blog with point spreads. Tucker by 27 over MLK? Thats a pretty bold prediction!

REGION 5AAAAA has some VERY competitive teams this year and the NORTH / ALLATOONA game tonight is going to be BIG!!! NORTH holds its fate in it’s own hands…WIN out and you are REGION champions!!! GOOD LUCK!

Last year’s UNDEFEATED REGION CHAMPS in 5AAAAA, EAST PAULDING have struggled this year playing without a Head Coach with ANY football knowledge or leadership and the problems continue…EAST SHOULD win tomorrow night in “THE BONEYARD” against winless LITHIA SPRINGS but is probably going to finish at 6 / 4, losing to TWO PAULDING COUNTY teams AND missing the playoffs for the only the 2nd time since 05. This is NOT what is expected from EAST PAULDING teams!

EAST needs a NEW HEAD COACH more than OBAMACARE needs a new website!!! Although both have about as many problems and the person in charge of BOTH have NO CLUE!!!

Coaching candidates for 2014 PLEASE go to: http://www.eastpauldingfootball.com and click the boosters tab then send your resumes to the club President, V.P. & Alumni Association…can’t hurt and maybe this will get the ball rolling! .

TICK…TICK…TICK…SPUTTER…COUGH…POOF…DONE FOR 2013!

GO RAIDERS!!! STAY POSITIVE FOR 2014!!!!

THE BOOOOOOOOOOOM!!! WILL BE BACK!!!!

@Sportsnut……………….Mays? over Stephenson? Really?

Last I checked you were 50-50 the last time you tried this so let’s say you are on target to at least be consistent. The probability of that specific prediction being correct is 50-50, but I guess while this one you will get wrong there is a correct prediction in there somewhere.

…..but you are are wrong about Sandy Creek winning too.

Matchups and motivation are a better predictor of who will win than score comparisons.
