Playoffs are essentially here

Technically, the start of the high school football playoffs are a couple of weeks away, but don't tell that to your all-knowing one.
The playoffs actually start this week in the mind of the K-Man with some matchups that'll eliminate teams from playoff contention.
One of them will be at Auburn Hills Avondale, where host Avondale meets Bloomfield Hills Lahser in a battle of 4-3 teams that need to win out to qualify for the playoffs.
These teams have been among the most unpredictable all season, so even the Krystal ball has a hard time reading this one.
Another elimination game will be at Pontiac, where 5-2 Farmington will visit 4-3 Pontiac.
Make no mistake, the loser of this game will miss the playoffs. Yes, Farmington will still have a shot with a 5-3 record if it wins its Week 9 game, but that's not going to happen.
The Falcons have to play at Harrison in Week 9. Good luck there, so Farmington will have to win at a surging Pontiac team in order to make the playoffs.
Yet another game to watch will be at Troy, where Rochester Adams puts a 4-3 record on the line at 3-4 Troy. If Adams can't win, it'll be the end of a 15-year playoff streak
