Re: Pat Ryan’s choice

Nice dream. Oh how I wish it could come true. But I don't think there is any way to get Jon to give up his current job. I do think the rest of your list is pretty accurate, but I'd have the order slightly different. Personally I hope the administration will open it to outside candidates. But I don't...

Re: Mid-Illini 2019-20

But is he still allowed to coach that game from the locker room? I thought that wasn't allowed. Officials don’t monitor locker rooms. I'm aware of that. My question goes more to the IHSA reaction when the official or Washington AD brings the article to their attention. (I almost wrote "the PJStar c...

Re: Mid-Illini 2019-20

All I know is what I read from the Quincy Paper: https://www.whig.com/20200104/technicals-ejection-plague-blue-devils-in-loss-to-panthers Question: The QHS coach gets ejected at the start of the 2nd, yet admits he continued to coach at halftime, since when is this allowed? I thought gone meant gone.

Re: 4A-6A Title Games Thread

How weak was 5A north this tournament?

St. Rita seemed to have it pretty easy thru the bracket. Now they're being embarrassed by Rochester. Based on 1 half of football, easily the worst team of the weekend so far.

I'm not sure which was more pathetic, the head official who wanted him tossed or the IVC official that actually followed through with his wishes.
Don't be too hard on the IVC official. Once the call is made, I don't believe the school rep has any say in the matter.

UT Vols said a Chicago teacher friend of his said school is cancelled tomorrow. I assume that means no playoffs.
Would anyone really be shocked to see another special dispensation to allow them to play?

Re: 2019 Pairings Night Thread

With IHSA already tweaking rules to help public league due to strike, why not wait until Wed night for pairings? If the strike isn't resolved by Wed in time for practices, all the Chicago schools will forfeit round 1. Would rather see schools with lower point totals in the playoffs than see a bunch...

Re: Moline must forfeit game to Rock Island

Re: Week 7 Scores

Just looked at pjstar twitter. Someone tweeted (is that correct term) in reply to Stein that it’s first time Pekin has won AT Metamora. Not that shocking as they haven’t been conference mates that long. Also it’s got to mean time for Pat Ryan to go! Just kidding based on past posts here when Metamo...

Re: Freaking hideous!!!

The first question that pops into my feeble mind is; How are the non-playoff schools supposed to schedule that week 9 game? You can't do it ahead of time. You don't know who the other Non-qualifying teams will be. Is Pekin supposed to tell Urbana "We'll play you the last game, but not if we upset Mo...

Littlereddoggy. That mutt drives me crazy. I don’t dislike Metamora. I even go to some of their games when Washington isn’t playing. But that mutt has a true hatred towards Washington.
You think you have it rough? Try being related to her.

FWIW: That hatred is genetic.

They Quit The Team.

Had this discussion with Reggie offline, now I'm wondering what the rest of you think. The media is saying these kids are "electing to sit out bowl games in favor of the draft". Making it sound like a business decision. In my mind they are quiting on their teammates and coaches. And if I'm an NFL GM...
