East Peoria Football....

As much as I rant about Pekin's football fortunes, East Peoria's football program has really struggled even worse the last several years. This year the varsity and freshman teams have struggled (don't know much about soph/jv). Believe, me I am not knocking the Raiders - would like to see them turn t...

Congrats to Morton

With Pekin beating Limestone, Morton is the MI volleyball champion for 2018. The top four teams in the MI were pretty good this year with all four winning over 20 games. Of course the flip side is that three MI teams lost over 20 games! :D Morton and Limestone were tied 11-2 before last night when P...

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Is it true that Osweiler has now beaten the Bears with three different teams - did I hear that right? If so, he is a Bear killer!

Re: Chicago Bears 2018

Tough loss especially with so many starters out for Miami - no way their offense should have gotten 500 yards on the Bears with several starters, including QB out. As someone mentioned, the heat might have been factor - 87 degrees with nearly 100 heat index. Again though, you wonder how good of shap...

Re: College Football Week 7

Nebraska fails to score in overtime and Northwestern wins with FG. I actually got into my car and had the radio station to WGN which had the Northwester game. The game had just under two minutes left and Northwestern had the ball at their own one. I thought, hey let's see if they can drive 99 yards...

Peoria Stadium - Old Times

I would think it's been some time since Peoria Stadium hosted three games on a weekend. This weekend you have Central on Friday night, Manual early afternoon and Notre Dame at night. Good to see the old girl being used so much. Back in the 60's the stadium would sometimes host four games over a week...

Re: Week 8 Scores

Washington wins 30-15. All in all it seems that Metamora showed some grit tonight with nice comeback. Birds had the ball late in game to maybe tie it but fell short. But you can't give a team like Washington a 23-0 lead - just too much to come back from. I am sure Metamora wishes they could have the...

Re: Week 8 Scores

East Peoria had a third down and 44 yards to go and made it, went on to score. You can't make this stuff up. Pekin has a good chance of losing this one. This game will @@@@@ up a lot the PICK EMS!!! :td

Re: Chicago Cubs 2018

AS the much maligned retired announcer Hawk Harrelson said - He gone! (talking about Davis). So how much of the Cubs late season hitting trouble is really Chili Davis fault? Or is he a scapegoat? It did seem like some of the players didn't like his approach...

Anyword on moving this game to Peoria Stadium? You can fit more people there. Not to mention the nostalgic atmosphere it would create! :twisted: Tongue in Cheek folks! I have a wedding rehersal or I would definitely be there. Good one! :D

I see things changing in Pekin in very near future with Nutter as head coach. Things are blowing from across the river on him.

Absolutely not! When the weather gets cold you are going to need Howard. Also, Cohen is not built to withstand a lot of touches each game for an entire season. What if he gets injured? All you have left is Cunningham. Also, you need Howard to change things up a bit. Finally, you are not going to get...

Re: Washington @ Metamora

I get the hoopla over this game, it's Metamora vs Washington and what more, they're both undefeated. But, as far as "Game of the Week" goes, IMHO, I humbly disagree. One team is going to be 9-0 eventually, the other 8-1 and both will host first round playoff games. Washington has been pinned for 9-...

Re: Green Bay Packers 2018

I read that Crosby has the most missed kicks overall since 2010...his days might be numbered. Packers win today if he makes the easy field goals and extra point. I will give him the 56 yard miss - many kickers will miss that.
