Re: Open letter from IHSA Exec. Dir. (along with Nat'l. Fed State High School Assn.'s Exec. Dir.) to parents: Cool it

I sit at the scorers table which is directly across from the home and visitors bleachers at girls and boys sophomore and varsity basketball games and have witnessed so many fans acting beyond rational behavior. It is sad. I don't know if it is getting worse than it was 40-50-60 years ago, but it is...

I guess I spoke too early about the lack of transfer talk.

Re: 2018-19 Bracketology

IU will play their way out before much longer. I don’t see many Ws left this season for them. Especially now that they're behind Illinois in the standings and as you said, maybe only Rutgers at home for IU is a sure thing. Everything else not so much. IU playing out like we thought. Rutgers certain...

Re: Big Thanks to Cristobal

No drama?

Area high school ball has nothing but drama. I’m just glad this year’s drama revolves around a stage curtain rather than transfer talk.

Re: Big Thanks to Cristobal

OMG. A grand psychological ploy! Diabolical! It is like the Wizard of Oz, what is really behind the curtain???? lol I know the Morton band is good but I didn’t realize the band and their curtain were such intimidating factors. Is that more intimidating than a screaming, yelling bully trying to inti...

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. OK men. You posted this answer the question. Do DMs to each other if ...

Re: Playoffs

Romo is a great color commentator and anyone who says otherwise is just foolish. Of all the color commentators out there right now, he's the one with the freshest take on the game and what the QBs are thinking. When you look at the top teams at the other networks, the color commentators on the #1 t...

Btw I never said this game was rigged, just that the reffing is once again pathetic
Yet you only complain about calls that benefit the Patriots.

You want fair play or officiating that favors the Buckeyes, I mean team you are cheering for?

Wow 2 more flags against NE on one play. What a conspiracy!
How does the refs miss that pick play there?
It’s clear that the officials are making sure the Chiefs win. Three flags on NE and ignoring offensive PI on that drive.
