Most coaches would rather reveal the secrets of their playbook than comment on a Week 7 game during the summer.

Or a Week 2 game during Week 1 for that matter.

But that's what I'm here for. After the IHSA released the 2019 football schedule a couple weeks ago, these five games jumped out as being of great interest.

And what the heck, for added #HotTake action I even ranked them in order of how important I feel they are going to be. Right now. Two months before the season starts. I don't see anything that can go wrong with this.
