Blogs > Burney's Bites

Burney's Bites will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

The Great Burnzini - Saturday Forecast

Birmingham Brother Rice v. Toledo St. John's - The Warriors go down to Ohio and take care of business. Star receiver Kevonte Martin-Manley gets into the end zone for the first time this season and goes over the 100 yard mark and running backs Jeff De Claire and Jimmy Pickens get TD apiece on the ground in a big Rice win. St. John's is no slouch - one of the better private school team's in Ohio - but coach Fracassa's bunch are on a mission to keep pace with arch-rival CC, who had a huge "W" against cross-state power Hudsonville on Thursday.  
BR 28 T. St. John's 17
Detroit Allen v. Waterford Our Lady of The Lakes - You can't stop Junior QB Mike Sullivan, you can only hope to contain him!
WOLL 38 Detroit Allen 7
Oh, yeah one more thing - SUPERSONIC UPSET SPECIAL:
Bet the farm, Western Michigan won't just cover the points on Saturdat afternoon in Ann Arbor, the Broncos are going to come out of the Big House with a victory. Hail to the Victors no more. Probably unfairly so, but Rich Rod's days in the A-squared are numbered. No freshman quarterback is going to be able to take this group of Wolverines to a plus-500 record and that my friends is a promise. Terrell Pryor struggled out of the gate last season and he was the second coming and the Bucks were in considerably better shape talent wise than UofM is this year. Brace yourself Wolverine fans, its going to be another long season. And its starting with a big fat "L" in your own crib at the hands of a spirited Western squad, led into battle by Tim Hiller, one of the best signal callers in the Midwest.
WMU 24 UOFM 20
on a brighter note - watch for OC'ers Dion Sims (Orchard Lk. St. Mary's) and Edwin "Rock" Baker (Oak Park), to make some noise for the Sparties this year at Tight End and Running Back respectively.

Wow, that U of M prediction could not have been more wrong. You should apply for work at the Free Press! As long as you keep on board the Harrison train it's all good.
