    How did American River barely survive for two weeks in a row when they beat Diablo Valley 67-0 in their first game?

    • Thank you very much for catching that. I am caring for a loved one who just had surgery and made a mistake. It is now corrected with an acknowledgement that it needed edited.

  2. Awesome to see these obscure teams!

  3. Love this! Great job on this post! I also take an interest in football. In fact, I just created a post about the best sports TV shows, and 4 of the 5 are about football!!!!

  4. Yep, these teams are about the only honest ones because they are down so low.

  5. The Olympians are my team!
