Wow, what a crazy week Week 8 was. Of the six pickers competing in the Dayton Daily News contest, five of us went 12-8 – and that was the best record. DDN Sports Editor Brian Kollars went 10-10. There were several shockers, including: Franklin over Eaton, Marion Local over Coldwater, Madison Plains over Meadowdale and Lebanon over Butler. With two weeks left I maintain a one-game lead…
