Re: Rankings

East Peoria struggles in a lot of sports, not just football. I would gladly be part of a program that does well in most sports like Dunlap. As a Pekin guy, I would take Dunlap sports program over Pekin any day of the week! :D

Re: Rankings

Pekin will beat Dunlap if they play. That program is horribly coached. They have some talent but there is no hustle and they cant rebound Coach has two kids and guess what they both start varsity. They really need Eddie to just take over the program and turn it around. I know a few kids left to go ...

Re: Rankings

THE TEAM. THERE ARE A FEW Hustlers OUT THERE AND KIDS THAT WANT TO WIN. WHEN WE PLAYED THEM LAST YEAR Dunlap was actually winning. With 1-2 minutes left in the game Dunlap was up by 10 I believe. Instead of dribbling and passing they continued to shoot and make silly fouls. Result was Dunlap lost I...

Re: 2021 predictions?

Pekin should be decent, kind of bummed they don't get to play a full season. Last fall they were suppose to play Peoria Central - that would have been a very interesting game. Dragons have a very good QB coming back (Van Ness) along with some skill and linemen. I would assume Washington, Metamora, D...

Re: Chicago Bears 2020

Yeah, I understand about Minshew, but I really like this young man. He put up some good numbers his first two years and I saw him throw some really nice medium-deep balls. He is still on rookie contract but you are right about Jags keeping him as backup. I really don't understand why the Jags benche...

Re: Chicago Bears 2020

It seems like Mitch isnt going to re sign. It seems like the Bears arent pursuing many other options other than Wentz. It seems like Nick Foles is the QB. I would have liked to see them take a swipe at Mariotta, but seems like hes going to be a Patriot. I think that kid can play. Actually, it seems...

Re: Chicago Bears 2020

Wentz would've been an upgrade at a moderate price. I don't think Wentz would had fit in with Chicago. I think he found the perfect place in Indy - better O line, better weapons and fan base that will probably give him some leeway. With Chicago, the first bad game, the first bad stretch, the fans w...

Re: Chicago Bears 2020

I sure hope Bears don't go for Wentz but I got this horrible feeling...Wentz is not much if any upgrade over Mitch at this point. He was horrible last year and some think he is a problem inside locker room or with coaching staff. But knowing Pace, who wants to make big splash, he will get Wentz and ...

Re: 20-21 Mid-Illini

That's a shame -I'm sure both teams were excited to play opening MI night. For Pekin, this would have been first game while Dunlap played PC the other night. I wonder if this game will be made up? And how will this affect Saturday's game? Yuck, hate covid!

Re: Hank Aaron

I don’t think he is ever looked at in the greatest of all time arguments because he didn’t have those massive individual seasons that so many have had. What he did was a model of consistency which to me is far more impressive. He hit 755 home runs and never have more than 47 in a single season. He ...

Zach Davies has actually been a pretty good pitcher the last several years...I didn't think the trade was all that bad, getting Davies and four decent minor league prospects is not a fire sale in my opinion.

Why the Sox (basically Reinsdorf) chose to go with La Russa and bring on all these problems is beyond me....most of us Sox fans had such a great feeling about this up and coming team but the La Russa hiring has sort of dampened the mood.

Re: Chicago Bears 2020

There's also the fact that some ten teams or so are going to be looking for a head coach - not that many quality coaches out there right now. So if Nagy gets fired, there might not be that great of option this year to replace him. Let's say Bears finish 8-8 this year. That means Nagy after three yea...
