Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Bonus Bytes - Instant Feedback

Some observations from Saturday's state football semi-final games involving the four teams - Clarkston, CC, Brother Rice, and OL St. Mary's - from the OC:
I hate to second guess any of the county's outstanding stable of head coaches, but I'm thinking if longtime Clarkston sideline general Kurt Richardson had to do it over again, he would have had Tyler Scarlett take a knee in the final 40 seconds of the Wolves 37-35 heartbreaking loss to SH Stevenson.
St. Mary's Robert Bolden went all ROBERT BOLDEN (145 yds and 3 TD's through the air and 85 yards and one touchdown on the ground) all over a highly-vaunted De Witt team and the Eaglets, who started the year 0-2, are going to their second state final in the last three seasons. 
I'm gong to start calling the CC defense the "Cy Squad," as in former pitching legend, Cy Young, because the Shamrock's "D" pitches shutout like a grizzled, MLB vet. CC's 31-0 stomping of Holt gives the team an astounding 8 shutouts for the 2009 season.
Keep your heads up, C-Town and Rice, you boyz both had great seasons and have nothing to be ashamed of!
