Playoff teams already in trouble

There may only be two games played this high school football season, but already there are signs of trouble for a few teams out there that Kosmo thought would be in the playoffs. Granted, there's still time to turn things around but no question, the teams below are in some peril and need to figure things out quick if they are going to return to the state playoffs. Holly - Well, at least we can say the Bronchos have been here before. Holly started off the last two seasons 0-2 before rallying to make the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Bronchos, they dug themselves that hole again following losses to Swartz Creek and Linden. It's hard to go to the well of slow starts too often and still emerge at the end, but will see if Holly can do so. Rochester Adams - So how many times has Adams been 0-2 to start a season in recent memory? Kosmo isn't sure either. It has to be a long time, but unfortunately for the Highlanders they have some serious playing to do in order to keep what's a 15-year playoff streak alive. Of course, the schedule to start the season was brutal with games at Clarkston and at home against Harrison. But this hasn't looked like a vintage Adams teams both in quantity with the fewer players than usually on the roster and the quality of play. But Kosmo never will doubt the quality of the coaching staff there, so things could turn around. Ortonville Brandon - Kosmo was so hoping the Blackhawks could follow up that playoff appearance last season with back-to-back trips this year, but losses to Flint Kearsley and Lapeer West have put the Blackhawks in a bind. The schedule won't get any easier with a game against Pontiac Notre Dame Prep on Friday. Troy Athens - The Red Hawks were a feel-good story last season with a 7-2 record and the fact they got to host a playoff game, but this start has not been what anybody expected. Somehow, Athens will have to shore up a defense that has given up 127 points already this season. Don't count Athens out, but something will have to turnaround quickly.
