Re: IHSA Districts Passes

a couple of good points there---only allow FB schools to vote and co-op schools only get a single vote. it seems to me that if a do-over vote were held under those conditions it would be easier to live with the outcome

Re: Illinois basketball 2018-19

Even with about 30 seconds to play, I'd have bet the deed to grandma's ranch they would lose that game. What a great win, especially in the Garden. Those two subs had the games of their lives. It was said that one of the two is from Chandler, AZ. How the heck did he find his way to Cham-bana? (And w...

For those who said Notre Dame had no business in hen playoffs we can now say that Alabama had no business being their, either.
Much as I dislike Bama, they earned their spot as a conf. champ.

Re: Bowl Season

I’m going to really miss Dwayne Haskins. He is the best college thrower I’ve seen in a long time. Murray and Tua had running to help themselves but just strictly as a passer Haskins is unbelievable. He will be the best pro of the 3 as long as he doesn’t go to the Raiders. Lock of Missouri and Grier...

Re: College Football Week 13

It's funny that Orgeron got the premature Gatorade shower. The only other time I've seen that LSU was on the other end of it. Kentucky, when they were terrible, thought they had LSU beat, and showered the poor coach and the gave up a 70 yard TD as time ran out.

Re: College Football Week 13

a weak 7. they seemed to get a lot of early season rankings traction out of beating Auburn, a 7-5 team. They played Alabama to within 29 without scoring a point. I said a weak 7. Didn't say they were weak.

Re: College Football Week 13

I thought they were a pretty weak 7, I wonder what that'll do to the rankings. As A & M is also an SEC team, they probably won't drop that much. Herbstreit said in his telecast how much Jimbo Fisher needed that win to maintain credibility and to justify his $$$$$contract. I also heard on another gam...

Re: College Football Week 13

That sounds right, unfortunately. The rivalry has actually lacked balance for almost 30 years now. John Cooper of Ohio St. was 2-10-1 against Michigan and then Tressel and now Meyer have dominated it the other way. Cooper used to say, "some days you're drinking the wine, other days you're stomping ...

Re: 4A-6A Title Games Thread

Crete had a pretty crazy looking kickoff to start the game. Not very often you see a game begin with an onside kick. Looked like they were doing the Jud Heathcoate weave before kicking the ball away. It failed, of course, but looked great.

Re: College Football Week 12

Absurd IMO. OSU Bucks, you are backing the shakiest top ten team in the history of ranked teams. IMO. How do you feel about the Michigan game? And thereafter, should they win? My inclination is to dismiss their chances, but as al Davis said, just win, baby. And they're doing that.

It will be good for the parochial school from elmhurst to face better competition this year. They were not being challenged too much in 3a it seems.

I know it's never safe to look ahead at playoff time, but it looks as if Maroa and Saint T might be on a collision course. That will be a good game if it comes to that.

Without looking at the brackets or who Highland plays, I don’t think they get by JCA, Hillcrest, Montini, Sycamore or Sterling, so whatever one of those teams they meet first they are done, just my opinion.
Looks like jca. At jca. But I would like to see them put up a good fight.
