::shoulder slump:: It was a 16-8 week last week, and the overall record stands at 115-48 (.701). To get to the 75 percent prediction record, I have to go 79-17, which is 82.3 percent correct a week or around 20-4. In other words, it probably isn't happening.

#9 Frisco Independence (5-0, 2-0) vs. #1 Frisco Lone Star (5-0, 2-0)
Offense. Offense. Offense. Both teams average more than 54 points a game, hold teams to a combine 20 points a game and have each outscored opponents by more than 220 points. I feel sorry for the scoreboard operator at the Ford Center for this one. Lone Star's battled Highland Park this year and won - on the road. Independence's toughest opponent has been Frisco Memorial. Give me Lone Star.
