There was a lot of controversy last August with the Prep Kickoff Classic at Wayne State University, since there was complaints about the ticket prices, games that took way longer than expected and backed start times of other games up and of course, a couple of fights that scared a lot of people when Cass Tech and Brother Rice played on a Saturday night.
However, none of that has stopped the event from returning to Wayne State, which it will in August.
There have been some tweaks, and Kosmo likes them. There will be only six games, with two games taking place on Thursday, Aug. 29, Friday, Aug. 30 and Saturday, Aug. 31.
The start times are 4 and 7 p.m. for Thursday and Friday games and 1:30 and 5:30 for Saturday, so that should mean games that aren't delayed and also less chance of any trouble taking place.
As for the high ticket prices? Well, that unfortunately won't change but maybe Kosmo will be pleasantly surprised.
Oakland County will also be well represented with Oak Park playing Orchard Lake St. Mary's at 4 p.m. on Friday and Southfield taking on Detroit Cass Tech after that at 7 p.m. on Friday.
Brother Rice will play at 1:30 on Saturday against Cleveland St. Ignatius.
