Re: Week 3 Updates & Scores

Yeah, Knights win! I wonder, since Manual should have beaten Richwoods, if they will beat CC? It would be nice to see Manual get a few wins this year. The kids and coach work so hard despite obstacles...

Re: Thoughts on Mid Illini

Youngblood, I agree -Pekin has GREAT fans! They show up year after year and travel well too - not just football but basketball too. It's just too bad they don't get much for their turnout. But it is what it is, and every year I get on here and blow a few gaskets and then all is well. I don't know wh...

Re: Pekin - A Tale of Two Halves

Well if they aren't quite as in good condition as other teams, who's fault is that? I agree, Pekin has a decent team that should not be 0-3.

Re: Thoughts on Mid Illini

Good for you -although attacking Metamora doesn't show class. I am not negative towards any other school. Besides, you really couldn't fathom what is to follow a school like Pekin. What bad seasons are you talking about Cristo? You've had FOUR losing seasons in 40 years - again what do YOU have to c...

Re: Thoughts on Mid Illini

I've written a lot of good things about Pekin football over the years! I have followed the team through thick and thin for 40 years and also was former player. Just not much positive to write most years. YOU try to follow a team that does the same crap year after year and loses year after year. It's...

Re: Thoughts on Mid Illini

1. Washington 2. Canton 3. Morton 4. Pekin 5. Dunlap 6. Metamora 7. Limestone 8. EP GBG, this is where you and I might disagree. It seems some years you downgrade Metamora early in the season after injuries or a bad loss. But I will always put Metamora near the top in league because of one thing - ...

Re: Thoughts on Mid Illini

Too bad about Metamora QB situation. That being said, I still wouldn't count the Birds out. Pat Ryan has a way of getting his team ready to play. Canton's offense has been explosive the first two weeks. I know their opponents are not that good but still but the Giants might make some noise this yea...

Re: Thoughts on Mid Illini

OB, I can see Limestone beating Pekin as well. I think both Canton and Limestone have excellent chances of winning against Pekin. It would not shock me to see Pekin go 1-8 or 2-7 this year though the team has enough talent to be better than that....another year and another under .500 record. Last ye...

Pekin - A Tale of Two Halves

Pekin this year is definitely a team of two halves. Consider Pekin 14 Rochelle 14 at half - outscored 21-7 second half Pekin 14 Sterling 26 at half - outscored 21-7 second half Pekin 14 Dunlap 13 at half - outscored 19-6 second half Hmm...I'm not sharpest tool in shed but I see a pattern! :drunk And...

Re: Week 3 Updates & Scores

I'd love to see Pekin drop to 6A, then at least they would be able to play some local games instead of traveling all over the state. They wouldn't win anymore games 6A but at least there would some local teams....

With new districts in 2021 they won’t be playing each other.
Good point but IF they did Buckeye, I can almost guarantee you that Dunlap would win. Pekin players seem to get worse the higher up they go!!

Re: Mitchell Trubisky

Well one QB today who did worse than Trubisky was Jameis Winston - 46 QB rating, 1 TD and 3 INT....Baker Mayfield wasn't so hot either - 64 QB rating, also 1 TD and 3 INT, which is funny because Mayfield had ripped Trubisky a few weeks ago for not being a good QB....

Re: Mitchell Trubisky

I think Pace will see what happens this season and then if Mitch does not improve look to see who is available in the draft or trade market for next season. I really believe the offense looked bad because of not playing against real competition in the pre=season games. Well I think we can all agree...
