With nearly every section having moved to playoffs, the 7 Friday Night crew finds tough sledding everywhere when it comes to its NorCal football picks for the week.
Hosts Chace Bryson and Ben Enos continue their season-long, see-saw battle as Ben regained the lead with a 3-2 performance last week. In a turn of events that few saw coming, Coach Terry Eidson has become the most consistent among the trio. Coach has reeled off four straight 2-1 efforts, while predicting 3-0 every time — including this week. Also, Coach drops a brief (for him) “I told you so” about Flightline at the Breeders’ Cup and puts a smart twist on “Dumb Football.”
