High school sports quick hits from Kosmo the all-knowing Oakland Press seer.

Can this be happening?

One of Kosmo's favorite subject in school was history, but even your seer doesn't want to look at the history books to answer these questions.
When was the last time Orchard Lake St. Mary's, Birmingham Brother Rice and Farmington Hills Harrison all missed the playoffs in the same year?
Has it ever happened?
Kosmo would bet a lifetime worth of investments in caves that it hasn't, but unfortunately, there's a strong possibility none of these annual powers will make it into the playoffs.
St. Mary's and Brother Rice each have three losses and need to win their remaining games in the regular season to qualify.
Brother Rice plays Detroit U-D Jesuit (should be an easy win), at Flint Powers (a tougher opponent, but should be a win) before playing in the Catholic League Prep Bowl, likely against either Warren De La Salle, Novi Detroit Catholic Central or St. Mary's (a toss up either way).
St. Mary's will host Dearborn Divine Child (should be a win), play at Davison (tough game) before the Prep Bowl against either De La Salle, CC or Rice (again, a toss-up either way).
Again, there's no margin of error for either Rice or St. Mary's.
Meanwhile, Harrison has only two losses, but after a shocking one-point loss to Farmington last week (kudos by the way, to the Falcons), the Hawks must upset either Rochester Adams or Clarkston in the next two weeks, and then knock off an improved Stoney Creek team in Week 9.
Wow. Can this really be happening? Maybe the three most successful programs in Oakland County all not making the playoffs in the same year?
Stay tuned.
