We can't believe that it's already Week 9 of the high school football season.  We've got a lot of teams with 5-3 and 4-4 records looking to get into the MHSAA Playoff field, which is set to be announced on Sunday night.

East Lansing, Sexton, Olivet, Dansville, and Fowler are the 5-3 teams looking to automatically get in with the required 6 wins.  There are eight other schools at 4-4 looking to get an at-large bid.

On with the Week 9 picks (teams in bold are the predicted winners).
