Quayle looks to post big numbers

Oct. 09, 2013 @ 07:34 PM

We’re a little more than halfway through the regular season, and the numbers just don’t add up.

Sure, most prep football prognosticators would be thrilled with a 67.5 percent winning clip.
But I’m not most prep football prognosticators.
I’m San Quentin Quayle.
It’s time for me to crunch those numbers and return to more Quayle-like percentiles.
And it all starts with this week’s picks.

EAST FORSYTH AT HP CENTRAL
The Bison learn the hard way that one is the loneliest number. ... East Forsyth 27, High Point Central 26.

T.W. ANDREWS AT PROVIDENCE GROVE
I’m gonna need a bigger abacus. ... T.W. Andrews 66, Providence Grove 14.

As the Count on Sesame Street might say, the Vikings score one, two, three, four, five, SIX sensational touchdowns. ... Northwest Guilford 42, Ragsdale 28.
