Just took a look at Monroe's schedule, they have a really good shot at making the play-offs. So we could get a Bedford-Monroe match-up twice this year, or that game depending on which way it goes could keep one of the teams out (Bedford's schedule is brutal).
I see Monroe easily winning against Tecumseh, Skyline, and Huron, that give them 4 wins with the win over DSE. And that's not even me looking at the teams that are traditionally tougher, I know Pioneer is down a bit this year from what I've read, I don't know much about Saline or Fordson this year though, and Sexton is traditionally good.
Drawing Tecumseh instead of Adrian or Chelsea was a huge benefit to Monroe this year, I hope it works out in their favor.
Bedford really upgraded their schedule this season. They kept Airport, which I don't know a lot about this season, but they are traditionally good. Huron, Skyline and Monroe Jefferson (sadly they've been down more than up lately) should give Bedford 4 wins. They'll have to play well in the other games and pull them out. I didn't get to see the game last night against Airport, so I'm not sure how well they played, but it was a 14-7 game most of the way.
They picked up a huge game against Toledo Central Catholic, if they win that game I could see the momentum carrying them to another undefeated regular season. A loss wouldn't be devastating, but it would make it harder for me to figure out exactly where the team is, that game is this Friday, I'll be there.
Then they also play Pioneer, which is a rivalry game, Saline which again I don't know a lot about, and Adrian which is an upgrade over playing Tecumseh last season. I can see them finishing anywhere from 5-4 to 9-0, more likely in the 7-2, 8-1. A lot depends on how quickly the new QB picks up on the Offense. It'll be a fun season either way though, hopefully I make it out to a few games, maybe 12 like I did last season, which since I missed the opener would mean a deep play-off run.
