All I know is that Jared Grebner and his motivated team won.

Time moves on.
Whoooooh big fella! Your predicting a HOF coach and multiple state championship games? Hope so but pump the breaks.

Re: 2021 MI season

Crouch would prefer a heavy rushing attack anyway. Only when he has had talented passers like the Fischer's did he really air it out.

Re: Dictator Pritzker Holding Illinois Hostage!

Bluejay, I won't get into the numbers yet, but shouldn't the IHSA schools have a say in this? Shouldn't maybe the schools themselves vote on this? IN fact, last week the IHSA sent a letter asking the governor to hand control of high school sports BACK to the IHSA. He REFUSED. Hence why I used word ...

Re: Predictions for 2020 Mid Illini

What’s your thoughts on baseball and football switching this school year. It may feel weird but would give a tier one sport a chance. This has to happen. Fall football IMO is 95% off. If it's on and multiple kids get diagnosed positive it is going to be an unfortunate row of dominoes. Debby downer ...

Yes, the 1977 team reached the Elite Eight in Class A, but did not bring home a trophy. This will be the first basketball trophy for RB. The 1986 team reached the super sectional and lost to Hoopeston East Lynn. Great teams in the 1960's were prior to multiple classes and kept running into great Pe...

Re: Mid-Illini 2019-20

Metamora should’ve had the officials open the curtain in the second half like last year. I think the result would’ve been different. Hope Washington does it. Metamora won a share of the conference title because of that. What is this referring to? Morton's curtain in end zone of court? How does that...

Re: Reynolds mention re Indiana

If he was offered I am 100% sure he would take it. He is a professional administrator who strives for a challenge. Another perk is, this is a state job thus his salary qualifies for state pension. Work there for 10 years and his pension is probably 50% of his salary. Just speculating.

Re: Thoughts on Mid Illini

Washington shot themselves in the foot twice in the short red zone. I understand they are kids.

However, why the defensive scheme didn't say, hey #17 is pretty good, let's not let him beat us.

He and they did.

I probably need to dig deeper, but this is probably wrong, but not diabolical or cashing in thousands on shoe contracts. Darn it they helped a kid with his grades. Yes they handled him, but obviously he wanted Depaul as his choice. The men’s basketball program recruited the student-athlete, who had ...

Re: But will it translate

It really all depends on how the new pieces fit and how quickly they can get up to speed and help us win games. We really need at least a couple immediate starters from this group. Possibly three. We also need Henry, Brummett, and Boya to take major strides forward in their games to the likes of ho...

Re: Michigan State

Personal thought - I have been to playoff games for every pro team I follow and every home game of a historic World Series run. Bradley basketball in the NCAA’s is peak sports for me. Short of winning, it just does not get any better than days like today. So true. I've been to the masters. I've bee...

Re: Metamora Hoops News?

Did I read a bit of whining by DG in today’s PJS? From people I talked to that were at the game, Redbirds just played bad. What? Metamora thinks were screwed by the officials? Say it ain't so. The crew was very very bad except for the ref that wasn't pregnant. It went both ways. The game was way to...

I understand there is travelling just a comment about the distance when 2 schools can throw a rock to the others.

Curious if the MTHS/Manual game is expected to be a flip of the coin. I haven't seen Manual play.

Shaping up to be a well balanced sectional. The seeds so far are playing out.
