Week 7 Team Rankings: Tecumseh rolls to #3

By Steve Widzinski, 01/22/14, 11:15AM EST



Division 1
#1 Davison (1)
#2 Detroit CC (2)
#3 Hartland (3)
#4 Temperance Bedford (4)
#5 Macomb Dakota (5)
#6 Brighton (6)
#7 Holt (7)
#8 Grandville (10)
#9 Oxford (8)
#10 Grand Rapids FHC (9)


#8 Grandville posted quite the week. On Friday they won handily against #10 Grand Rapids FHC, and on Saturday they followed up with a huge win over D2 #4 Niles. They’re up to #8 now, but with the parity in D1 this year, they are very capable of beating anyone outside the top 3.


Division 2
#1 Lowell (1)
#2 St. Johns (2)
#3 Tecumseh (4)
#4 Niles (3)
#5 Ortonville Brandon (5)
#6 BC Western (6)
#7 Gaylord (7)
#8 Greenville (8)
#9 Clio (9)
#10 Warren Woods Tower (NR)

Formerly Ranked
Byron Center (10)


#3 Tecumseh moves up a spot. Partially due to their big win over D1 #4 Temperance Bedford last Wednesday, and partially due to Nile’s loss to D1 #8 Grandville on Saturday.

#10 Warren Woods Tower debuts following Byron Center’s loss to unranked Three Rivers. WWT has a big win over Warren Lincoln earlier this season, and has been very competitive with the likes of D1 #5 Macomb Dakota and D1 #8 Oxford among others.


Division 3
#1 Dundee (1)
#2 Richmond (2)
#3 Allegan (3)
#4 Grand Rapids CC (4)
#5 Birch Run (6)
#6 Manchester (7)
#7 Swan Valley (5)
#8 Chippewa Hills (8)
#9 Lake Fenton (9)
#10 Allendale (10)


#7 Swan Valley slips a couple spots following a loss to D1-unranked Plymouth.


Division 4
#1 Hudson (1)
#2 New Lothrop (2)
#3 Carson City Crystal (3)
#4 Hesperia (4)
#5 Lawton (5)
#6 Schoolcraft (6)
#7 Sand Creek (7)
#8 Addison (8)
#8 Decatur (9)
#10 St. Louis (10)

Letter from Hall of Fame Football Coach Noel Dean to EMU Football Coach Chris Creighton

Sign The Petition (Click Here)

Chris ,


I have to do what is right for the state of Michigan. As you know, I have coached high school football in the state of Michigan for the past 27 years. I have great respect for you as a coach and a person. You are just under the wrong leadership at the wrong time.


EMU's Athletic Director Scott Wetherbee  giving kudos 2 days before giving the program the axe

EMU's Athletic director Scott Wetherbee giving kudos to the team 2 days before giving them the axe. What kind of person does that?


Your president, a guy from South Dakota obviously doesn't understand the culture of Michigan and the value us lifelong Michigan residents not only have for the sport of football but wrestling too.


He doesn't understand how deeply intertwined football and wrestling is in this state. Many coaches are involved in both and have sons, nephews and grand kids that participate in both.


My biggest impact players have been both football players that are wrestlers. I am always and also told to have multi athletic players. This is in stark contrast to HIS position.


I can't stand by and not take a stand against what is happening at EMU with the wrestling program. Wrestling contributes too much to the fabric of our schools systems in Michigan (a guy from South Dakota might not get it), but if I stick to the facts on this. wrestling is only a bone to keep people happy FOR NOW. They are coming for you next.


If this goes through, you and your staff will not be allowed in any one of our buildings. I won't speak for the others copied in this email but I wanted them to see my position.


Bottom line is, a guy from South Dakota is dumping on boys in the state of Michigan. I personally have had enough of people like this. Time to get priorities in order.


You are a good man but, you may be at the wrong institution.


Noel Dean
