Re: Metamora/Dunlap

If Metamora loses to Dunlap but beats Pekin next week, only three teams from the MI will make the playoffs this year... I almost hate to say it but if Metamora beats Pekin next week I REALLY look forward to your post game post. :lol: Ahh...does it really matter? Even if Pekin beats Metamora they go...

Re: NFL 2017 General thread

Seeing DeShaun Watson destroy Titans today - wondering - couldn't the Bears have drafted him in their draft spot without giving up the draft picks they gave away to get Trubisky?

I was going to say - didn't this person hired by Washington have several years experience at the underclass level at Washington and Normal West? Or did I read that wrong?

Re: Scores week 6??

Morris beats Dekalb 19-10...... For what it's worth I expect Morris to go 5A Dunlap was a ton. They remind me Morris. They are almost identical in many ways. That would be a good game if they met up in the playoffs. I would pick Dunlap in that game by one maybe 2 TD's Sterling would be a very formi...

Re: Ugh....

I do believe that Pekin allowed their most points last night since the early 1900's....I will check on record. If people think 3+ hour games are great and no tackling or defense is played, then they can have it. I am full agreement '94. I said the same thing after Central's 90-60 game against Bloomi...

Re: Scores week 6??

Pekin's defense at its finest! :td I knew Morton's type of backs and offensive game would score huge amount of points! You know - I believe that 66 points might be the most scored on Pekin since the early 1900's....think about that one! It's really time for Pekin...oh never mind. It doesn't matter a...

Pekin blew two big leads in their last two matches to lose to Limestone - despite very talented team, looks like third or fourth place this year. Hats off to Limestone girls for coming back in both matches to win

Re: What's wrong with Cam Newton?

Injuries do seem to have taken a bit of tall on Newton - I know he has taken a lot of hits the last few years also. Olson was a big loss and Reggie, it does make you wonder if there is some hangover from that super bowl?

Re: Should National Anthem Be Played at Sporting Contests?

Don't the US military and the NFL have some kind of contractual agreement? I think at least for them, the anthem may be required. I think it goes back to around 2008 because prior to that point, the players weren't required to be on the field for the anthem. Actually as I researched this, I found o...

Should National Anthem Be Played at Sporting Contests?

I was just thinking - should the national anthem be played at sporting contests and why? We don't play national anthem before concerts, at the theatre or many other entertainment venues. It is interesting to note that the national anthem was not played for the most part before pro baseball and footb...

Re: Protests...

I think what also gets lost in all of this is that prior to a few years ago, all teams were in the locker room for the anthem. College football still does the anthem while teams are in the locker room for most games. It was this way until the Military PAID THE NFL to have the players come out to ap...

What's wrong with Cam Newton these days? A few years ago he was all world and seemed poised to become the face of the league. He has struggled for what - year or year and half? Is in injury problems? Lack offensive skill players?

Re: Where ya headed Week 6????

go to Washington - first place on the line and it seems two evenly matched teams. I think Morton potentially rolls to big win- even though Pekin has won the last few years the potters rolled up some good point totals overall. However it really depends how Morton responds after big loss last Friday -...

Attendance....

Since I can only get to one game a year down there, I was wondering how is the attendance for area games? How well is Central, ND and Richwoods drawing? What about MI teams? How is Metamora drawing being down this year? It seems Dunlap is doing well - what about the other MI teams?
