Kersey/Przybylo's Class 6A Playoff Predictions

by Jason Kersey Modified: May 13, 2013 at 3:24 pm •  Published: November 6, 2007

By Jason Kersey and Robert Przybylo

1st round: Norman North over Edmond Memorial; Muskogee over Edmond North; Tulsa Union over Tulsa Washington; Putnam City North over Putnam City; Midwest City over Mustang; Owasso over Broken Arrow; Jenks over Stillwater; Lawton over Westmoore.

Quarterfinals: Muskogee over Norman North; Tulsa Union over Putnam City North; Midwest City over Owasso; Jenks over Lawton.

Comments: Muskogee has already beaten Norman North once this year in Norman, and I think it does it again. While I disagree with coach Matt Hennessy’s blanket statement that “There’s no one tougher than a Rougher,” I think Roughers are tougher than Timberwolves, at least in this context.

Semifinals: Tulsa Union over Muskogee; Jenks over Midwest City

Finals: Jenks 35, Tulsa Union 32

Comments: It’s well documented that the winner of the regular season game in this one loses the playoff match-up. I don’t think that changes this year, and Jenks wins, adding another chapter to this historic rivalry.

Przybylo’s Picks

First round: Norman North over Edmond Memorial, Muskogee over Edmond North, Union over Booker T., Putnam City over PCNorth, Midwest City over Mustang, Owasso over Broken Arrow, Jenks over Stillwater, Westmoore over Lawton.

Second round: Norman North over Muskogee, Union over Putnam City, Midwest City over Owasso, Jenks over Westmoore.

Semifinals: Union over Norman North, Jenks over Midwest City.

Finals: Union 34, Jenks 29.

Comments: I admit 6A is not my specialty. I might be trying too hard to say the west side deserves some love with Norman North and Midwest City in the semis, but I think that would be what’s best for this class as a whole. I could be way off, but I think the Timberwolves’ close loss to Muskogee taught them more than most of their wins. It’s all moot because in the end, it’s round 2 of Union-Jenks. Jeremy Smith is a stud, and he’ll show it again here.
