Rivalry week here

School spirit magnified even more. Bands and cheerleaders working overtime this week to get their school and players ready for the big game. Pep assemblies and guarding precious monuments to make sure opposing fans don't taint them. Teams that can make their seasons with one win despite previous disappointment.
All the above is why this is one of Kosmo's favorite weeks, and no, he's not talking about Michigan State-Michigan week.
While the in-state college rivalry will be the center of attention, Kosmo is more excited about the fact that it's rivalry week for high school teams around the area.
Whether it be in Troy, Rochester, Pontiac, Birmingham, Southfield or Farmington Hills, in-city schools are preparing for the biggest week of the year, no matter what the records are and how lopsided the matchups are. For some, it will be the last week of the season and a chance to play for bragging rights. For others, it will be chance to clinch a playoff spot or have one final tuneup before the postseason begins.
Whatever the scenario, you don't need a crystal ball to predict that this is the most anticipated week of the year for just about every high school in the county.
