Missouri coach must've lit a fire under his team after week 1 loss. They are putting it to W Va bad. Big tight end from SHG having a day.

Re: College Football Week 1

I invested fully three quarters in FSU-Boise before leaving the house and didn't think Boise had a chance of winning that game. Glad to see them win it. They're always strong but play in partial obscurity to people in this part of the country. Well, me anyway. I really enjoyed Purdue-Nevada and stay...

Re: Longtime Nokomis head coach Steve Kimbro to retire at the end of this season

off topic here but I did not realize til today that Bud Foster, long time VaTech FB coach (DC), is out of Nokomis. Sounds like he got the old "thank you for you years of service, but please leave" memo. I used to know a lady from Nokomis thru Claude Kracic's baseball camps who'd bring her kids to th...

I thought my wife had a good suggestion after seeing Lovie the last couple of nights on the news. She thinks the Illini cheer squad ought to add this to their repertoire this season: "Cut that beard! Cut that beard!"

Anybody watching this? Six pounds fifty for a Heineken. That's like fifteen bucks, isn't it? Both pitchers knocked out in the first inning, never seen that before.

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

I think it was predicated on football. They were just getting slammed in the cs8. Why drive those distances for all other sports, in which you're more or less competitive? As far as hoops goes, yeah, they're playing down there, but to get anywhere in the postseason, they still have to go through the...

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

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.
