Taken from his tv interview, PR is keeping his teaching position for at least one more year.
I talked to him at the grocery store and he is retiring from teaching as well.

Was looking forward to a JCA-Rochester game. Could JCA getting beat at home be the upset of the playoffs?
Jca losing to Mascoutah has to be the upset of the playoffs. Looks like rochester will make their way to the championship once again, hopefully getting destroyed by rita or rockford!!

4 teams with 3 loses are in the 5A quarter finals. Brutal this year.
3 of the 4 play in brutal conferences. Of those 3 teams opponent's they lost to, 7 are still in the playoffs if that makes any sense.

Re: 4A-6A Second Round Matchups

Really? I know Washington gave Richards a game last week and maybe you got a chance to see them. I only know that Richards is rated in Chicago Tribune top 20, beat a pretty good St. Rita team with their only loss being to a very good Homewood-Floosmoor team. I also know they have a pretty good runn...

Re: Round 1 Playoff Scores

Pekin gave it a game, down 28-19 late before turnover and easy score for Thornton, 35-19. Just like Pekin, Thornton was on a hot streak with five game win streak. Great season for Pekin who finishes 6-4 and co-champs in the MI. Unless Dunlap wins over Rocky (20-18 right now so Eagles have chance) M...

Re: Thoughts on Mid Illini

I find it interesting that when Metamora or Washington aren’t completely dominating then the MI is down. I will always be a Morton fan but I’m not that upset that they lost to Pekin. I have 4 grandsons who will likely play for Pekin in a few years so I want them to be on a winning team! Are you con...

Re: Peaking at the right time?!

I think Morton would like to replay a couple of games from earlier this season but that’s water under the bridge. The Potters do seem to be peaking at the right time. Not just Seth but the whole team. Good luck in the playoffs! :td https://www.pjstar.com/sports/20191025/cleve-in-eve-mortons-glatz-n...

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!!!

3 wins to get in the playoffs??? A 3 win team does not deserve to make the playoffs. Would that 3 win team get matched up with a 9-0 team the first round? If so, what a waste of time and likely more injuries. This whole proposal seems unorganized and quickly thrown together.
