The 7 Friday Night crew is back for another round of blind stabs and bold predictions when it comes to NorCal football picks. Host Chace Bryson finally stumbled last week in going just 2-for-5, leaving an opportunity for co-host Ben Enos and weekly guest Coach Terry Eidson to each pick up ground on the SportStars editor.
Chace and Ben make their three primary picks from a six-game slate of some of NorCal’s best Week 5 matchups, and then serve each other two blind picks in the Challenge Round. There are also tales of Ben’s high school baseball career and a breakdown of how an actual fight between a bear and a tiger might play out. Finally, Coach Eidson predicts he’ll go 3-0 yet again — and as he points out, he’s due.
