Re: JCA vs Metamora

Call me a crazy bath water drinking noob but if metamora does get past jca, and I think they will, they just might make a run to Champaign. The lower bracket is winnable esp now that the QB for Hillcrest is out for the season. No matter what whoever wins this game has a very good chance of making i...

Re: No Excitement For Metamora?

There's no excitement about it because area basketball is down. Nobody here thinks metamora is a good team compared to most years. For a fan to get excited about a team outside of their own, it usually takes something special like a top notch player or exciting team. Nobody in the area was that type...

Re: Canton at Morton

Could it be that the rest of the Mid-Illini is very average after Dunlap and Washington? Pepin Metamora was close, Metamora was in the game with Morton into the 4th quarter, Canton loses to Metamora then puts it on Morton. If (When) Washington beats Morton on Friday night it'll be clear that the Mid...

Re: Week 7 scores

After hearing the outcome of the peoria high game one thing really does still matter, defense! I believe it would have been much different if Coran was playing If he's back come playoff time will it really matter?? Come up against a good defense and p high will have problems. Are you asking if come...

Re: Scores and updates Week 4

Its not about liking 82 to 80. Its about tge absurd blanket statement that they dont play defense. They led the area in turnovers forced a year ago. They play it a different way but its a disservice to their defensive coach to say they dont play defense. They're struggling this year but i just think...

Re: Scores and updates Week 4

Peoria definitely has a great offense but think how good the team would be if the D was as good? Now will ND continue to put up 60, 70, 80 points per game the rest of the year? Or was that only possible against Peoria. I just dont get what the difference is between 42 40 between 2 teams that huddle...

Re: Scores and updates Week 4

The there is no defense crowd always frustrates me. Last year everybody said the Big 12 doesnt play defense wait until they see a Mid illini defense then Central put up 70 something on the mid illini champs. At somepoint they had to get some stops because they came back from a 30 point deficit last ...

Re: Where ya headed Week 1???

Will Peoria High put up 60+ a game again this season? I think people are forgetting how hard it is to score 60 points a game. They lost Green. They lost their big play receiver. They have an amazing backfield but I think they lost 3 or 4 offensive linemen. I expect them to be the best team in the a...

Re: Morton Potters

I find it hard to believe in this age of budget shortfalls, the Potters hired a basketball coach 1st. Yes, they may have got their 1st choice for the position. If so, good for them. But.............., I have to believe the coach had to fit into a vacant teaching position too. In other words, there ...

Re: 3A Sectional Matchups

Race doesnt have anything to do with it. Success does. People have complained about Metamora and Washington recruiting a lot. But I've also seen Manual basketball and lately like Central accused of recruiting. Not everything has to do with race. This complaint comes because of success
