All right let's do it.

Bath at Allen East
Versailles at Celina
Defiance at napoleon
Elida at Tiffin Columbian
Coldwater at Kenton
Eastwood at O-G
Shawnee at Jefferson
Sidney at St. Marys
Bryan at Van Wert
Wapak at Bellefontaine

Looks like all matchups are the same as last year and all teams are in the same region as last year.
Jesus, last year's prediction contest posts are still on the first page of this forum.

Bath at Allen East: I've heard from people in Wildcat country that Bath doesn't have much to work with.
Versailles at Celina: I don't know much about either team. I'll go with the larger, home team.
Defiance at Napoleon: Defiance has been struggling as of late.
Elida at Tiffin Columbian: I know absolutely nothing about the Tornadoes. But I think their mascot is stupid.
Coldwater at Kenton: By far the most intriguing matchup. I've heard Kenton will be tough, but it's hard to pick against the Cavaliers.
Eastwood at O-G: Eastwood lost a LOT to graduation. Should still be a great game.
Shawnee at Jefferson: I think the Jeffcats are going to struggle this season. Gotta go with Shawnee's stellar QB.
Sidney at St. Marys: The Riders are back to their old form, or at least close enough to it.
Bryan at Van Wert: Toss up game.
Wapak at Bellefontaine: Upset special. I've heard good things about Bellefontaine.

Bath over Allen East - There was a time when these programs were local powers. That time is not now.

Versailles over Celina - No idea on this one other than that I don't trust Celina.

Napoleon over Defiance - This is becoming OSU-Michigan, with the Dogs playing the role of the Wolverines.

Elida over Columbian - Let's see if the Bulldogs can continue their momentum of the recent past.

Kenton over Coldwater - Watch out for Kenton!

Ottawa-Glandorf over Eastwood - The Titans bounce back from last year's losing campaign.

Shawnee over Jefferson - The Cooper Era begins with a win.

St. Mary's over Sidney - Hard for me to bet against the Riders.

Bryan over Van Wert - This is more a vote against the Cougars than a vote for the Golden Bears.

Bellefontaine over Wapakoneta - Heard the well might be running dry for the Redskins.

Wow - another year is here?!?!

Bath at Allen East - Bath is joining Defiance as the perennial doormat for the WBL
Versailles at Celina -Celina seems to be on the uptick
Defiance at Napoleon - ​Poor Defiance, can't catch a break, if Napoleon goes 1-9 again this still might be their only win
Elida at Tiffin Columbian - Elida is doing well lately
Coldwater at Kenton - Coldwater still gets the nod for now
Eastwood at O-G - Haven't heard anything from OG, where did the Kaufman kid end up going to school? Football or hoops?
Shawnee at Jefferson - Cooper is back to provide the shadiness to the league
Sidney at St. Marys - Wing T for the win
Bryan at Van Wert - Bryan has a ton back so I'll go with them
Wapak at Bellefontaine - I would be interested to hear why Wapak isn't expected to be top notch, largest school with the best athletes for a good decade now

The first 2-3 weeks of the season are always the hardest until you can see what teams really have.

Bath - Just a hunch
Celina - going with home team
Napoleon - 2 not so good teams. I believe Defiance may be better than Nap this year, but until they actually prove it on the field, I am not going to pick them.
Tiffin Col. - Pretty solid program on their home field
Coldwater - They always seem to be able cover Kenton receivers.
Eastwood - Defending State Runner-Up. Should be a good game.
Shawnee - Going with the bigger school
St. Marys - Appears to be at the top of the league
Van Wert - Home team and not much confidence in Bryan
Wapak - No idea really. Going with better program in recent years.

Allen EaST---Upset for Stangs@ home
Versailles----but younger studs coming later for Green Dogs
Napoleon--Cats win the River Rivalry
Columbian---Orange Dogs lost standout freshman qb already
Coldwater--Hope Cavs stay in different division than Titans after court case next week
Titans---Eastwood graduated quite a bit more than us
Shawnee--Cooper usually starts hot@ new schools
St Marys---win despite many new faces
Van Wert---total guess
Bellefontaine----I've also heard Skins fans lowering expectations

My internet was out so this is a little late but I'm not following games on purpose anyway.

Bath
Versailles - Celina has been getting better but still seems to have unexplained losses to Versailles in the last few years.
nap
Elida - no clue but I see Columbian was winless last year.
Coldwater
O-G - last season's down year notwithstanding for the Titans, Eastwood lost almost its whole team from last year's state runner up.
Shawnee - hard to see the Indians being worse than last year when it beat a Jefferson team with a better record.
St. Marys
Van Wert - don't know how much the Cougars have back from last year but they were very competitive and beat Bryan.
Wapak - ugh, went back & forth on maybe my toughest pick.
