With 21 teams not owning winning records through eight weeks, it's no wonder coaches from coast to coast are on the firing line. It's also ludicrous in many cases.
It's playoff time on KATU's High School Blitz, and all the best teams are in action. This first segment features a bunch of the top programs in Oregon.
We start by wishing our Salem photographer Gino "Happy Trails," then get to one of his games: Hillsboro at 7th-seeded Central in the 5A bracket. Then it's back to 6A, with 5th seed Central Catholic taking on McNary, and the 16/17 matchup, with Westview at home against Lake Oswego. We wrap this block of games up with two more undefeated teams, 6th seed South Salem hosting North Medford, and 7th-seeded Lincoln taking on Newberg.
For this one, we go over the river to Southwest Washington, where Camas is undefeated and taking on Bethel in a WIAA 4A playoff game. This also has our Play of the Night.
See which #K2Blitz photos made the big show.

A day after Washington State coach Mike Leach said the Pac-12 should investigate Arizona State for stealing opponents' offensive signals, Sun Devils coach Todd Graham said there was nothing wrong with what his team was doing - and most of the conference's coaches agreed with him.
A daring dash by Eric Hosmer tied the score in the ninth, and those bound-and-determined Kansas City Royals rallied yet again to beat the New York Mets 7-2 in 12 innings early Monday for their first championship since 1985.
One agonizing step from ecstasy last season, this time the Royals reign after their latest incredible comeback and a go-ahead hit from maybe the most unlikely player in uniform.
Russell Wilson had a scoring pass for the game's only touchdown and directed a late drive to the winning field goal, leading the Seattle Seahawks over the Dallas Cowboys 13-12 Sunday.
