St. Charles East, the only 2-0 Tri-Cities team.
Kaneland, 30 regular seasons wins and counting.
Someone woke up the North Stars.
And Marmion and St. Francis are looking like they're ready to do some serious damage this season.
Those are some of Sly's takeaway impressions after Week 2 of the football season.
Yeah, Batavia lost, which is certainly noteworthy, but probably not too big of a deal in the grand scheme. Don't be fooled, the Bulldogs are still loaded, and they'll get better as the year moves along.
What it does do is give others around the Tri-Cities, including a certain blue-clad opponent next week, hope that the Bulldogs are beatable.
Let the countdown begin to the Week 3 games between Batavia and Geneva and East and North. Both of those games could be pretty competitive, and for Sly's money, all four of those teams have shown they could be playoff-caliber this season.
That might not happen with all the beating up on one another, but all of these teams have plenty of reason to be optimistic with what they've shown to date.
East is in awesome shape to make the playoffs with the 2-0 non-conference start, so kudos to the Saints for taking care of business early.
Kaneland is scary good again. This could very well be The Year for the Knights, who seem to have all the ingredients a team could want to do something special.
Fun start to the year. Can't wait to see how these teams stack up in conference play.
