CIAC State Football Tournament
The 2nd season, the football playoffs, is underway. Thirty-two teams have battled their way in. Some of the early matchups are intriguing and probably could be considered a championship game. There are, of course, favorites in every class. However, somewhere along the way, a team will spring an upset(if you can call it that, especially in the playoffs), but your brackets might not look like what you thought they would. Someone e-mailed me and asked me if I wanted to make predictions on the 4 classes. I declined, saying making predictions only makes enemies. So let the post season begin and in a couple of weeks, 4 champions will be crowned and they'll have earned it.
