Who We Say Wins: Picking the Winners in Week 9


Here’s who we say wins…

This week we continue our annual attempt to pick against and with the Dayton
Daily News
and ThisWeek News in Columbus. We’ve also got our Ohio 12 Pack – our statewide slate of big games.
Here’s who we say wins in Week 9. Do we like your team’s chances?

Last Week: (5-1)
Season: (34-14, 71%)
Turned in a solid 5-1 week. The only loss? I picked Brookville over my alma mater Bellbrook. Eagles made me pay. The overall race has boiled down to myself and Greg Billing. WHIO sports anchor Mike Hartsock just spent a week in Cancun and forgot to make his picks. I understand.

DDN 2012 Pickers
Greg Billing (Dayton Daily News Reporter) 37-11
Eric Frantz (JJHuddle Managing Editor) 34-14
Mike Hartsock (WHIO TV Sports Director) 28-19
Maggie Short (Dayton Daily News Digital Producer) 19-28
John Boyle (Cox Newspaper Sports Editor) 18-29
