Re: Big Thanks to Cristobal

Clearly, we have been light years ahead of everyone else in terms of psychological games. I mean Arizona State's "Curtain of Distraction" has nothing on us. :roll: I better be thinking of some mind games I can do behind the microphone to mess with the minds of the East Peoria players on Friday nigh...

Re: Big Thanks to Cristobal

I have to say it has nothing to do with shaking hands. It’s a psychological part of the game. I’m sorry I’m not replying to people but this is between the coaches and the officials. I know the Washington and metamora coaches know what’s going on now and I hope it changes to make it fair. Sorry for t...

Re: Big Thanks to Cristobal

As painful as it is, I’m glad Metamora won. I get so tired year after year of what Morton does before and during the game. Thanks to the officials for doing what was right and making the game a bit more on the same playing field. Thank you mutt for talking to the coaches and making this happen. I’m ...

Re: The Washington Panthers

The Panthers are really working great as a team. For such a young team they have shown other teams they will play with the best. Great win last night. Playing a team two weeks ago and again last night and having a 33 point difference between the two shows a positive future. Regionals should be great...

Re: Coach Brown

Obviously a long year for Panthers with C Brown's illness and several key returning players electing not to play. Pretty hard for physically inferior freshmen and sophs to compete at the varsity level. Still scratching my head how they were able to beat the Potters the other night. Kudos to Morton ...

Re: How ironic is this!

I myself thought it was crazy calling a timeout. No reason whatsoever. Clear and open shot. The face on the player was crazy.

Re: The Washington Panthers

Quest are 3a players that can’t play at Central, Manual, or Richwoods. There are no rules for them!! My sentence structure was bad. It was Washington players who got the Ts not Quest. Actually it was both teams during both games that night. I believe there was a total of 7 technicals and a removal ...

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

I would be more concerned about the 69 schools that abstained. Passing by such a slim margin with these ramifications will probably be challenged in court IMO. I would also like to see the list of schools who did not vote. Or, I would like to know why schools that don’t play football cast a vote. I...

Re: Mid Illini rank

Just watched Washington play this evening. I really didn’t know what to expect. What I will say is the freshman and sophomores are outstanding. Don’t under estimate them. They will do great this year and have a bright future with the addition of next years freshman. I have to give it to all the fres...

Washington at Crete Monee 2pm Saturday Ya baby. Looking towards a cold perfect Saturday game. Only thing is I have no idea about this team other than they are fast. And their QB has an arm. That’s just by watching videos. They also played Morris. I would love to just win this and host another semi-...

Re: Round 2 Playoff Scores

The first thing I would like to say, yesterday's game was one of the best high school football games I've ever seen (right up there with Metamora/Rochester several years back). Second, I as well as most of this community, still haven't forgotten what SHG did for Washington 5 years ago. With that sai...

Re: JCA vs Metamora

Call me a crazy bath water drinking noob but if metamora does get past jca, and I think they will, they just might make a run to Champaign. The lower bracket is winnable esp now that the QB for Hillcrest is out for the season. No matter what whoever wins this game has a very good chance of making i...
