Ishpeming No. 1?
October 6, 2012 - Burt Angeli
Tom (Richie) Kaeser of the Marinette EagleHerald questions the U.P. football poll with unbeaten Ishpeming ahead of once-beaten Kingsford and Menominee.
The top-ranked Hematites, with a less than formidable schedule, polished off Laona-Wabeno (Wis.) last week. Kaeser notes both Menomnee and Kingsford have met teams with a combined record of 21-15; Ishpeming’s opponents 17-19.
“The Mid-Peninsula Conference has taken a lot of heat over the years for not playing Menominee or Kingsford,” Kaeser wrote. “Give Iron Mountain credit. The Mountaineers scheduled Escanaba in addition to their annual backyard rivalry against Kingsford.”
