Re: Metamora/Dunlap

Not this year GBG. Offensive skill position players will roll up points and Birds won't get 15. Dunlap is for real.

Re: Metamora Administration's handling of racist incident

agree MR. I saw both posts and if anything he was restrained. I think about parallel situations like a young girl getting that with sexual overtones or someone getting threatened to be beaten by a group. How would those parents react? Willie handled it as well as possible. Plus Willie apparently did...

open transfer

If the NCAA goes to open transfer the mid and low major teams will have a new kind of one and done. We get you for a year and you move up. Will absolutely hurt the overall system but in fact may be what is fair to players. Thinking of BU minus JJ and Hersey and others.

Re: Metamora/Dunlap

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe you said it IS as newsworthy of the major college scandal and you also pointed out that racism exists all around. Valid points IMO.

Re: Metamora Administration's handling of racist incident

I agree with the comment that this can happen in any of our towns. I don't believe Metamora is one bit more or less racist than any other local community. I hope this brings light to a problem. While many disagree with the NFL protest this is part of what they are talking about. Remember there is st...

Re: Metamora Administration's handling of racist incident

Isn't there a threat involved? Is that possibly battery? I'm no lawyer. There is clearly damage and anguish.

Re: Metamora Administration's handling of racist incident

There are a lot of great people out in Metamora and this would be very difficult to handle. Do you hammer the perpetrators to set an example throughout the area this is unacceptable? Do you attempt to create dialogue that educates? Finally what on earth can you do to help the child who has been inju...

like they acted quickly to sweep it under the rug and make it go away. I may be wrong as those would be difficult shoes to wear right now but they get paid well for these days.

Re: Metamora Administration's handling of racist incident

The young man who received that from his teammates/classmates/friends will never ever be the same. Irreparable harm has been done. How can he ever face a situation again and not ask if it is because of his skin color that he has an issue? Very tough deal for him.

Metamora Administration's handling of racist incident

Is missing 1 football game and two days in school suspension enough for a video sent to a freshman football player by teammates depicting a stuffed monkey being beaten and shot with a nerf gun? The video shows them calling him porch monkey and the N word and claiming they used to own him allegedly.

Re: Metamora/Dunlap

The poor young man who received this has had his life changed forever. This can't be unseen and the kid who thought he had friends and teammates has had that stolen. The response by the Administration is completely unacceptable. This is very serious and should be treated as such.

Mid Illini 17-18

With coaching changes, transfers, turmoil. How does the league look? Washington has Brown I pick them first. Metamora with Grieves and transfers second. Coach Mathews and veteran bigs 3rd. The rest is a mosh pit.

Re: Washington Coach Brown

I've watched a lot of basketball. Not many teams play as hard night in night out as Washington. I hope this gets worked out. Maybe Coach Brown makes a couple changes. I believe he can fix it if given a chance.
