EVERYTHING EVERGREENS (FOX SPORTS WAUSAU-WSAU) Here are my football picks for week two:
Both the Evergreens and Wisconsin Rapids have things to improve on after week one losses. But Everest was 14-seconds away from a win against a tougher opponent. Rapids' first half against Wausau-East was ugly. The Red Raiders had only 6 first downs, and their quarterback may have been dinged on the last play of the game. I'm picking Everest for a road win.
Marshfield may be down from last year, and Wausau-East is riding high after a come-from-behind win. The Lumberjacks still have a lot of holes to fill; Marshfield will win at home.
Maybe Wausau-West is better than last year, and maybe SPASH is only an average team. West lost on a game-ending missed field goal against the Panthers last year. They have lots of motivation to turn the tables; West is my pick.
In other games:
I'll take Superior over Merrill;
Mosinee over Sheboygan Falls;
Edgar over Auburndale
Stratford to beat Colby
Marathon over Dodgeville
Antigo will beat Menomonee, Mich, and
Athens over Wausau-Newman
My record last week: 7-2
