Remember When

https://www.pjstar.com/sports/20181107/ ... ts-history

Can't not post this especially since it is his birthday today! Those that know me will know why I posted this and no it has nothing to do with the Richwoods story.

Re: Two Proposals

Thumbs down to both. Going to divisions is trying to fix something that isn't broke. Expanding the playoffs is an awful idea. Why send a 4-5 team to a 9-0 team to get running clocked? I'm sure the answer would be "playoff dollars". But other than parents, who is really going to travel to watch the t...

Re: Round 2 Playoff Scores

[2000 Richwoods-Metamora] One of the few times when the team you root for loses but you still drive home happy because the game was that good. Washington's balance is rare at the HS level. Can go into shotgun and have several great WRs and then shift to the Wishbone and have several great RBs. And o...

Re: Washington @ Metamora

Anyword on moving this game to Peoria Stadium? You can fit more people there. Not to mention the nostalgic atmosphere it would create! :twisted: Tongue in Cheek folks! I have a wedding rehersal or I would definitely be there.

Final Sign Off

Canceled my subscription to the Journal Star after 18 years today. Not happy with any of the things Gatehouse is doing, I'd feel like a hypocrite continuing to use their message board so I am signing off for the last time. Best of luck to all the local teams in 2018 and beyond.

Re: Good Bye Aaron!

Ditto what CIS said. Aaron brought a lot of energy to the HS football department and really seemed to enjoy covering it. Didn't always see eye to eye with Kirk but he ALWAYS took the time to listen to our complaints and took them seriously and did his best to address them. Kirk wss a member of the P...

Re: Week 2 Scores

2002 was last time Manual beat Richwoods. RHS actual lead the majority of the game. Manual scored right before half to lead 13-7. Knights went up 14-13 on opening drive of 3rd and never trailed again. Went up 21-13 and Rams scored with about 3:20 left and 2 pt conv failed. In reality Rams only lead ...

Re: Week 2 Scores

O&B-RHS goes for it on 4th and 2 on their own 20 (as were all so prone to do) and gets stuffed for 2 yard loss. Leads to 2 play 18 yard TD drive. For anyone wondering, I think the last time Manual beat RHS was 2002. And this is by no means a good Rams team.

Re: Week 2 Scores

I've been watching HS football for 35 plus years...RHS/Manual is bar none the undisputed winner for the worst game involving 2 bad teams I have ever seen. 7-7 and about 30 penalties and 4-5 turnovers....I stopped counting.

Re: Worst football uniforms you've seen?

Despite "obviously" knowing "nothing" about the jersey rule, 4A is the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the NCHS away jersey. #1 is probably open for debate. I loved when bruce Cowdrey would do the games on the radio "If I can't read the numbers, I'm not even going to attempt to give ...

Re: Thoughts & Observations Week 1

I did House and after seeing NCHS on Fri, I think week 9 is going to be an instant classic. I wasn't singling out any one team, I was just noting that there were several single digit to single digit games on Friday. I missed defense the last few years.

Re: Worst football uniforms you've seen?

Net-Care to explain? I was correct, the uniforms were illegal and they were penalized for wearing them. The PJ Star staff even did an article on it. http://www.pjstar.com/sports/20180825/normal-communitys-uniforms-yield-penalty-before-kickoff Please correct what I "obviously " know "nothing" about.

Re: Thoughts & Observations Week 1

CIS-I thought the same thing when I checked half time scores. It appears "real" football has returned. There was several 0-0 and 7-7 scores at the half. Welcome back defense, I missed you!

Re: Worst football uniforms you've seen?

As soon as I walked up the ramp to RHS Stadium I knew NCHS's uniforms were illegal. How does a coach or AD not know they are illegal? Watching HS football on ESPN the last 2 days it's been nice to see old school classy uniforms are making a comeback. I liked the days when you saw a uniform and you a...

Congrats Kirk, Wes, Aaron, and Stan. Been reading this section since about 1988. I think this one may be the best. I never cared for the story on ONE player per school. This one gives me what I need and no fluff. Great work guys!

Cutter752-Depending on how NCHS/RHS goes, I may be at the Stadium as well.

I have no problem with rain...I have a problem with people arriving late and then opening umbrellas in front of me obstructing my view.

Re: Week 1 Large School Football Discussion Thread

Galesburg/Dunlap may be the most intriguing. I'll take the Eagles but this one may be the most interesting. Normal West/PND would be my second pick for intriguing.

Re: Where ya headed Week 1???

#2 Looks like a winner. I'll be at RHS hopping for a non running clock. If so probably end up at Peoria Stadium. Weather looks good for Friday.
