Playoffs: Week 4 Predictions

With teams in the ThisWeekSPORTS.com coverage area going 2-4 last week, our number of picks has dwindled to two.

Still, no matter how Hartley and Grandview fare, we will close the season by picking all seven state finals.

Although he officially has been eliminated from title contention, John Hulkenberg did go out in style as he was the only member of the panel to go 6-0 last week.

JJHuddle.com managing editor Eric Frantz is hanging onto hopes of a third consecutive title as he trails leader Brad Emerine by four games and second-place Jarrod Ulrey by one. Frantz and Emerine picked the same winners – Middletown Fenwick over Hartley and Kirtland over Grandview – so their margin will remain the same.

Ulrey and Andy Resnik went with the local teams; therefore, if the Hawks and the Bobcats punch their tickets to the state final, Ulrey will trail Emerine by only one game. Resnik would continue to trail Ulrey by one.
