The league (I have not heard a name yet) is this:
AuGres
Hillman
Posen
Hale
Atlanta
Charlton Heston
Onaway
Pellston

Wolverine is also in the league but is going to play a JV schedule 2018 and possibly going to varsity starting in 2019
A lot less travel for Atlanta and Hale next year!

again beating a dead horse... all schools playing 8-man should be eligible for the playoffs if they have the points and wins

WOuld you feel that way if a school with 800 kids decided to play 8 man?

that is an extreme. we are not talking about roughly 700 kids.... we are talking about 1 or 2 kids the last three years and 6 kids this year.  but if a class A school wanted to play 8 man  they should be able to play in the playoffs.  or else why the hell do you play, if you don't play to win a championship?

At least you are consistent. But I think you’d have an issue if you actually had to play a class B or A team in the tourney.

I got tired waiting on the MHSAA to post 8 man football schedules (it seems that I ran into a brick wall most of the time) so I decided to use   www.michigan-football.com  to come up with the current open dates according to that website.  Plus note that some of these should be league games, but don't know who plays who that week in the league.  However, this should give teams the potential leads for that week.  I will update every week unless John doesn't update his website that week.  BTW based on John's website, Covert and Grand Traverse are on the inactive list for this year.

Looks like GTA will be playing a JV schedule this year: https://www.mygta.us/hsfootball
Notice all the games are on Thursdays this year. However, GTA has added middle school football recently, which might help their program in the future.

Wolverine is playing a mostly JV schedule, but does have at least one varsity game (vs. Caseville)

I got an email back stating that BCSP is playing North Adams in week 9 so take those two teams off the week 9 open date list.
