Time to make more predictions.
First, the South Dakota high school football championships are this week at the DakotaDome in Vermillion. All the games will be on South Dakota Public TV.
In Saturday’s semifinals, I went 8-4, which makes me 64-16 for the postseason. Three of my Argus Leader friends went 9-3: Mick Garry (69-11 overall), Stu Whitney (68-12) and Justin Wulf (68-12). My Sioux Falls newspaper buddy Matt Zimmer went 8-4 (67-13).
I’ve got nothing.
