Re: Mid Illini 17-18

Believe that program to be Iowa to be exact, has ability to play guard position and shoot but has a lot of height in the family. Could be one of those guys tat you look up and senior year he's 6'8 and the real deal. I assume that is where the upside comes in

Re: State Championship games 4A - 8A

Dunlap looked capable of moving the ball through the air. Loss of qb after the first drive going to make this game really really hard to turn around

Re: Dunlap vs Washington

Max preps ranks basically solely on record and a bunch of comparable opponents and SOS besides like the top 25 in the country that actually get watched and scouted as a team every game. No matter how good a down state team is, they can not be ranked too high on max preps due to the inability to sche...

Re: Adam Miller

I am completely unaware of the mothers previous or current job, but with a kid with his skill level leaving a school after 1. the coach is gone and 2. their 3 best players graduate then continuing to move to Morgan Park, one of the state's best teams, seems to be more than a coincidence. I'd say a s...

Re: Dunlap vs Chicago Phillips 5A Championship

I'm not quite sure on heights and stuff but I believe Dunlap has 2 6'3+? wr and a 6'7? Te and mangeri and what most people in the area think is an all state caliber rb and from the games I saw, I think he probably wasn't all state because of the balance in the offense. His numbers weren't as crazy a...

Re: Dunlap vs Washington

I believe i said it doesnt prepare them for what they will face saturday. Didnt the 3rd best team in the mid illini get run all over by the 5th best team in the big 12? And that same 5th best team played washington well the following week. Shows how weak the south bracket and 5a in general was this...

Re: Dunlap vs Chicago Phillips 5A Championship

From everything I've seen, Dunlaps run defense has been phenomenal, bennyhoff and mangeri are top tier defenders imo. You can argue they're outmatched but you can't point to any point in the year that Dunlap run defense has been anything but superb. Just because someone hasn't played the same compet...

Re: Dunlap vs Chicago Phillips 5A Championship

Hasn't Dunlap done that all year as well? Strength of schedule can be argued all we want but my point is I think Dunlap success has come as much from it's defense as is offense. They aren't a team like central of last year trying to run you out of the game.

Re: Mid Illini 17-18

Interested to see how Morton and more specifically barik olden progresses this year. I know he didn't play soccer this year and is really focusing on his game. Heard from multiple people around the program that he has made a jump up to the next level and even has some big ten interest

Re: State Championship games 4A - 8A

This is a much bigger problem in basketball than in football. This year is seeded 1-32 I believe Dunlap would have been the 3? You're saying they Could have lost sure but overall it is decently balanced. In basketball, it's all by location and regionals are decided very early in the season. I rememb...

Re: Dunlap vs Chicago Phillips 5A Championship

How big is Philips? I think a lot of Dunlap success has come from their big, physical athletes. Don't really know how Philips plays, but it also doesn't seem like their offense has been great against other "great" teams. Low scoring games are always more random imo because more likely that one play ...

Re: Morton Lady Potters

Some coaches workouts and such are more important than others and some coaching styles actually need more practice. Becker is a fundamentals coach, and he needs to get these girls to practice as much as he can so in crunch time they can force mistakes instead of make them. Obviously every coach coul...

Re: Richwoods @ Morton

Have not watched a ton of richwoods, but believe their passing game is significantly more involved than Morton's is, like you could say for basically any team, so I'd assume any type of weather would benefit the team that doesn't have as many opportunities to make mistakes

Re: Richwoods @ Morton

Morton has not been slowed down by any defense that is not very physical. Struggled with Dunlap's size and athleticism and like 10 guys in the box most of the game. Canton and Washington both used that gameplan to slow Morton down. Metamora, Pekin, and Centralia twice all used this strategy with ver...

Re: Richwoods @ Morton

I think they did get better vs. dunlap and metamora as the game went on. Washington and canton they just played very safe and played with a limited playbook, maybe trying to save stuff??? Was surprised with the play calls. Brilley has shown a lot of creativity offensively and has a pretty modern off...

Re: Richwoods @ Morton

Interesting to note that Morton's top athletes like Donald, Getz, and Crider had been playing virtually no defense, although they are their best option, in order to keep them fresh throughout the game. This made their defense to begin the year extremely suspect vs. the pass as their corners were sca...

Talking to him, he mentioned watching film of some of their kids with the Dunlap coaching staff and it immediately let me forget that he was no longer the AD although he still works in the district, which is why he was still talking to the coaching staff. Should be a good game. Morton's CLEAR issue ...

Re: Where ya headed Week 5????

Dunlap Morton game may have most on the line, two state ranked, conference opponents, undefeated and both offenses have been very, very good. wonder if it will just go back and forth or if someone find a way to stop the other. Morton's lack of passing makes turnovers less of an issue than for most t...

Re: New Mid Illini Predictions....

Morton has been very fun to watch so far. Three guys that run really hard and rarely lose yardage and breakaway speed on any play. They'll be a threat of their line can hold up. All three runners have great vision, which has helped so far. Dunlap Morton might be game of the year in the mid illini fr...

Re: Morton Lady Potters

From what I can tell, seems like she was credited with 6 blocks in the game, but Played around 20 minutes, being the sixth man that doesn't start but doesn't quite get the blowout run either. Very very impressive from a freshman, Dave kindred, on the team website had it as 6, to site my source
