OT: Huge Michigan High School Football Upset
Its not a huge upset when a team looses most of its talent and its hall of fame coach..I was stunned by the score, but I picked Howell to win...
A bigger upset was Chip Valley getting steamrolled by Dearborn
yes but loosing to that particular team is always a big looss. couldnt believe Chip Valley got Cleveland steamered by Dearborn.
You pick winners of high school games? Regularly? That's dedication.
My wife would have picked Howell simply for the outlet mall.
Every player of note is gone.... 30 seniors
My Alma-matter as well, what was your graduating class?
The English program must be superb.
Also their big rival #22 Macomb Dakota beat #4 Muskegon 23-20.
Our big rival is Ike then maybe Ford because we share the same field then Dakota.
I don't understand why dIKE? They haven't beat you in a long time. Dakota-Stevenson would seem bigger because the teams are always good when they play like that classic last season. We hate Stevenson over here at Utica but only because theyre always up there and good. Nevertheless I'm attending Stevenson-dIKE next week.
I heard that some guys from Ike spraypainted Dakota sucks at some places by the school. I'm actually going there next year too. Didn't play football this year, but I plan on JV and V eventually. GO EAGLES
Let me guess you go to mallow? I play for Utica freshman. Oh God how I wish Utica would play dIKE so I could get my hands on some of those people for the stuff they talk about people who live in Utica.
At least you're a Michigan fan!
I go to Shelby actually I almost played freshman this year. Too bad our guys won't be playing you, our school was really looking forward to it. Although it would have tore it apart. Anyway, our freshman team beat Ford 34-0 two days ago.
Ford Sucks. we beat up on Sterling Heights who also sucks 44-6. Unfortunately I blew my knee out in the game and am out the whole season and need surgery. I would love to see Utica-dIKE before I graduate. I remember when I was 12 watching Utica beat them 7-6 back the last time they played in 07 and remember the crazyness and gathering in downtown Utica seeing people burn garbage cans and etc. Utica-dIKE was definetely more intense than dIKE-Stevenson or Utica-Mott
Hmm.... what does gathering and burning everything in a downtown area remind me of... it's a city more east of Ann Arbor, I think it's the East part of a city... who knows.
Anyway I haven't been following high school football for a long time. If I head to the Stevenson- Ike game next week maybe I'll see you there (If it's @ Swinehart, if not then disregard this) I got Maize and Blue Nikes though, lol. Anyway, I'm going to sleep. Also, my dad played @ Sterling Heights when he went there, it's funny to hear how bad they were/are
Hahaha it was insanity because we cost dIKE the division title that year. Some were going for the goalposts to try to tear em down but those damn cops in the endzones. And yeah I'll be at dIKE-Stevenson at Utica Stadium. So maybe. I usually cause a ruckus because the shirt I wear with the block U on it. I had stuff thrown at me once (Hmm sounds like a place south of Michigan)
That game/night might have been intense, but IKE had won something like 20 straight before then, the only reason it's considerd a rivalry is because of the shared field. Sorry to hear about your knee same thing happend to me in hs it sucks, but IKE vs stevenson is def the "historic" series. Utica needs to bring back the Miami "U" on the helmets those uni's used to be sweet.
They've been back since last season. Thank God they ditched those Utah-style U's, Ironic how they brough em out in 08 and went 0-9 because they had a transition to the spread offense.
Ike stevenson was the big rivalary because Lantzy and Bye, I don't know if he coaches anymore, went at it for 30 something years and when I left Ike was up 1 in the all time series. Thats a pretty even series, and until Chip Valley came on in the late 90's it was IKE of stevenson that won the conf almost every year. It was the Mich osu of Mac red football.
Crush who??? ;)
Listened to it on the radio. Muskegon did shoot themselves in the foot a few times with turnovers and penalties but that's part of the game and Dakota capitalized on their chances.
Both teams should do well this season.
really be HUGE upsets?, nobody really knows anything about what they have right now.
Some things are known, like the fact that my alma-matter, who has won 3 games in the last 3 years combined, will undoutably be horrible for yet another year. '08 was rough seeing as how the 3 football teams I like to root for ended up going 4-33 on the year. UM was 3-9, Lions were 0-16, and my alma matter was 1-8...
Brighton - 35 Wayne Memorial - 6...... Go Dogs!
The spelling nazi in me is about to go Blitzkreig on my brain.
all F'n night yesterday. Between the normal hospital traffic, and the football crowd.......
A MAC-RED post? I fucking love it frontpage this asap. GO IKE!!!!!!
Finally someone who doesn't add a D to our name. You currently attend or have graduated?
Started for a team that went undefeated in the regular season and was #1 in the state. I played for the tail end of the 6 straight conf titles in the early 2000's. dIKE is a really weak nickname, at least chip valley, stevenson students were more creative in my day. I haven't followed whats gone on over the last few years but utica kids used to know better then to take shots at a team they had beat twice in 35 years.
It's one thing when dIKE people call people that they don't even know white trash and poor just because they go to Utica. But then they go on how everyone who goes there is rich as hell. My response to that is build your own damn stadium and stay on your side of 23 mile and we'll do the same and we can both continue on our respective rivalries (dIKE-Stevenson, Utica-Cousino)
I think the district doesn't want Utica-dIKE because they "share" a stadium. But yet they allow Stevenson-Ford. Or maybe because of the damage it caused to downtown when Utica wins (2007 last time they met)
dIKE I think will finish second in their Red division behind Dakota. I really think that this is Dakota's year (again). They haven't been a school 20 years and they already won 2 or 3 state titles.
You Ike guys should be mentioning an Ike alum that's playing for Mich now.... He's a walk on, but I hear good rumbles about him.
You mean Meriam the kicker? He was a year or two behind me at IKE but had a big time leg were in good shape if he's kicking our FG's.
Talking about monolo, he walked on as a rb
Wow the MAC-Red is really overrated.
Howell 35 #7 Stevenson
Troy 31 #30 Romeo 7
Troy Athens 31 Warren-Mott 19 (hahaha)
Dearborn 41 Chippewa Valley 14
Only wins were Dakota over 4 Muskegon and dIKE over lowly Ford
