Bull Session Week Eight  

We are getting into the stretch run before the playoffs and I always preferred having four groups in the public schools, as opposed to the current five. There are too many average and below-average teams

There are some changes. I flip-flopped Northern Highlands and Woodbridge; Woodbridge did not do anything bad, it was just a gut feeling. They may end up seeing one another in the playoffs and that would solve things.
