My how things have changed in this neck of the woods when it comes to high school football.
My first year here -- 2008 -- the Tri-Eight Conference had just two teams with winning records. In each of the past two years, five teams have had winning records.
It's a good change for competition's sake, but that's made things harder for me to make any predictions. It's given a different feel to predictions as well. Being the third place team in the Tri-Nine (Tri-Eight as it was then) in 2008 meant you were an average team. Last year, it meant you were one of the Triangle's best.
And so with great difficulty, I present to you my predictions for the Tri-Nine this season (game picks will be in the next blog). There's a mini preview with each.
