Tribskin Pick’em, your predictions and ours

Steve Ramirez and Fred J. Robledo going head-to-head throughout the season.

Robledo: Last week (18-6); Season (30-7)
Ramirez: Last week (17-7); Season (26-11)
Notes: What a tough week to pick football games. Ramirez and I both missed Duarte beating Monrovia, St. John Bosco knocking off Damien, and Trabuco Hills over South Hills. I called the Upland over Charter Oak and Ramirez called West Valley over Bonita, but where I edged him out for the week was picking El Monte over Sierra Vista.

Final thoughts: If I’m right, South Hills is 0-2 after what will probably be another close loss at La Habra. This is what happens when you play a tough schedule. Nothing wrong with it, Huskies will bounce back and still win the San Antonio, but from a SGV swagger standpoint, losing your two opening games hurts. Also expect Damien to bounce back big as well as Charter Oak. They won’t be losing this week. Also think West Covina will throw the Mater Dei video tape in the trash and handle Baldwin Park. Also hoping Diamond Ranch doesn’t stumble on Saturday against El Cajon Christian after last week’s big win. In fact, that game is at Ganesha, so hopefully SGV fans will turn out to see for themselves how good this team really is. Oh yeah, picking against Duarte again this week. I’m 0-2 picking the Falcons, so that has to change.
