(8-29-21) Week 2 of non-conference football games for the Midwest Athletic Conference (MAC) provided a 6-4 week.

For the two weeks the MAC went 13-7. With 16 teams in a region moving on to the playoffs this season it should help the MAC help several additional members to qualify.

But…it could all change with the recent ruling of the OHSAA that says schools only need to compete in 5 games, down from the 8 game totals. The move is COVID 19 related due to numerous cancellations of games. Computer points ‘where everything is made up and the points don’t matter’.

It might be a good time for MAC ADs and Commissioner Don Kemper to consider playing league games during week 2. The addition of eight additional schools qualifying for the playoffs solves what the MAC wanted to do with the extra non-conference week.

Some week two games were realistic and provided schools the opportunity to play a nearby neighbor…but Minster had to hit the road and play the Columbus Crusaders who are not a member of the OHSAA and is open to any player from numerous schools, including home schoolers.

St. Henry made the very long road trip on Saturday to play Ft. Frye. Coldwater had a nightmare Friday night…weather delays forced numerous stops in the game. For the Cavaliers, a long way from home, they decided to play the game. You can’t control the weather, but a bus ride from the Cincinnati area could have been.
