Re: Mid Illini Preview

Does anyone know what Dunlap has coming back from their outstanding team last year? Also, even though Metamora has not had their usual outstanding teams, I still never count out a Pat Ryan team and the program tradition. How does Metamora look for the upcoming fall?

Re: Mid Illini Preview

I'll take the freshman star with a grain of salt as they say! :) I remember Pekin had a flash in the pan freshman back a few years back that was going to be the next Mike Adamle (if you remember him you are as old as I am! :joker ). The kid played some varsity and was okay, got into some trouble, tr...

Re: Mid Illini Preview

What makes you think Washington will be in 5A this year? I’ll be a amazed if they are. If they do, it will be their last year. Enrollments have been listed. Using 2017 cutoffs. Pekin - 1824 (6A) Washington - 1340 (5A) Dunlap - 1304 (5A) Limestone - 1009 (5A) East Peoria - 983 (5A) Metamora - 980 (5...

Re: Mid Illini Preview

I don't know if Pekin will go down this year but it would be nice to see Pekin go to 6A - not that they will do much in 6A but there is no way in hades that they can win in 7A against 7A Chicago suburban schools or St. Louis area schools like Edwardsville. Like I said, they won't do much better at 6...

Re: Mid Illini Preview

You can basically pencil Pekin in for their usual mediocre 4-5 or 5-5 record (5-4 regular season and opening 46-14 playoff loss :D ) They have a nice QB in Righi and have some nice size, especially with Trumpy lad - 6'6 330 pound tackle who is getting some D1 looks. But somehow Pekin never really p...

Re: NBA Playoffs

If not for a hamstring injury, title could easily have been Houston's. The East as a whole was awful once most of the Celtics' stars were out. This Cavs team may have been the worst team in the finals I have ever seen. It is too bad that the Celtics had the injuries - I think if they were healthy t...

Re: The USA is A Okay since Kaepernick needs to get paid

If this issue wasn't impacting the NFL viewership and therefore bottom line, then the owners wouldn't have done anything no matter who the President was or what they said. Polling of NFL fans have shown that it has impacted viewership. The polarizing nature of Trump and his public stance have reall...

Re: NBA Playoffs

outside of the last minute in overtime, game one was a great game to watch...LaBron is marvelous, bone headed play by Smith...IF the Cavs could have pulled out game one they might have had a chance in this series...but momentum was lost and now I can't see Cavs winning series, but who knows?

Re: NBA Playoffs

Really surprised Cavs pulled this off, especially without Love - although they seem to play better the last two games without Love. Boston hadn't lost a home playoff game all post season, blew out Cavs the last three home games and yet Cleveland finds a way to win. Hats off to LaBron who simply domi...

After watching Dunlap's girls dominate the Honor Roll meet tonight, I started wondering when the explosive growth in the Dunlap district will push them into Class 3A for track. Anybody know? Likely next year. The line this year was 1301 and Dunlap was at 1281. The line has been dropping, a product ...
