Re: 2019 Season

Re: Coaching News:

. Accepting the BCC job with so few players available was dicey at best for anyone taking the HC position. I'm sure expectations even with those low numbers available were still expected. The Saints have a long rich tradition of football success. Years ago I worked around a BCC fan that commuted to ...

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

.No districts do not apply to the sophomore and freshman teams. And if a school wants to field those teams they most certainly can work up a schedule with whom they want.

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

.I can understand that. Especially if they end up in Class 6A. The SWC weren't stupid how they cased this decision. All of the schools in the conference will not be able to petition up in the sports they offer.

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

.You misunderstand. I'm not talking 2021. ESL for the next TWO years will have to follow their conference new directive. So the Flyers for 2019 and 2020 will be a 5A playoff team or more likely 6A.

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

.The ESL decision was made by those that run the Southwestern Conference that the Flyers are in. Teams are still allowed to petition up. So I imagine Phillips will continue to do so.

Re: IHSA Districts Passes

.The Flyer fans I have spoke with are saying that the school is still being told that they will not be allowed to petition up anymore. Their new two year enrollment cycle number is 1262 which for 2018 would of put them as the second largest team among the 32 class 5A postseason qualifiers. Looking a...

Re: Round 2 start times

SHG at Washington 1PM. And if fans are feeling frisky Eureka has a 5p start for their game. If fans are looking for a Friday night game the closest is Shepard at Normal West with a 7:30p kickoff. Likely a lot of beverage consumption afterwards. Either in celebration or drowning of the sorrows .Rela...

Re: Round 1 Playoff Scores

Congrats to Morton and Metamora on fine seasons! Morton came out flat and slow. I told my wife that the kickoff and McCarthur's first drive will tell us if how well they scouted Morton. Kickoff was a little pooch kick, avoiding Crider and Donald. Their 1st play from scrimmage was a pass play. They ...
