Re: Track 2019

I was referring to the mess that always comes with disorganization of checking athletes in for races when they didn’t come to the mandatory check in prior to the meet, athletes trying to enter races that they aren’t listed for Does that problem simply arise from coaches not taking care of procedura...

I hear Honor Roll is getting some much-needed logistical changes this year, hopefully will help the s***show that the meet usually becomes day of.
What kind of changes? Pushing boys back a week to compete after State?

D1 Recruit- Not sure of anyone getting offers in the Mid-Illini other than Dietz and Hall
They have D1 offers? Anything happen during the early signing period?

GBG, I guess Manual vs Urbana didn't live up to the pre-season hype? :P

Re: Washington @ Metamora

I actually have to agree. I was thinking about certain calls as well. For that matter I have seen bad calls or no calls all season. This has to be the worst season I have seen with officials. We were spoiled for decades in both local sportswriting and officiating and we never knew. "In our day", we...

With only a few days before the big game, can anyone of the Redbird fans tell me when was the last time the Redbirds played a game like this one.

Cards DFA Greg Holland. DL Brett Cecil. Trade Sam Tuivailala to Seattle for pitching prospect. Call up Luke Weaver, Tyler Webb, Daniel Poncedeleon and Dakota Hudson. Doesn't matter.

Re: Mid Illini Preview

To be clear, I am not 100% behind the proposal of districts. I am in favor of looking at options and open discussion. What has to be determined is what is in the best interest of the majority not just a specific school we may have attended or cheer for. In 2017, Metamora played non-con games in the ...

Re: Mid Illini Preview

If you are Metamora, would you trade yearly Washington rivalry games - From a financial standpoint of the two schools? No. If they choose, Metamora and Washington could schedule as their non-district game. - Although Washington is Metamora's closest geographical rival, the Redbirds have actually fa...

If this is all true, he should be suspended for at least one year from the IHSA and all other basketball competition. Do we get in a grey area for discipline if it was not IHSA competition and was not representing the athlete's home school? If assault charges are filed, that kicks things up a few n...

And B what is this "proposal" you speak of First proposed a few years ago by Eureka principal. Would eliminate conferences for football only and schedule based on 8 or 9 team districts divided by enrollment and geography. The current Mid-Illini would be broken into four districts.

When kids transfer in Jr. High I see no issues around rooting for them. There are many factors and the kid has to be the focus. What gives with the sliding scale of if a kid deserves support?

Hard to be passionate about high school teams when half the rosters are transfer kids. I know it is the way of the world these days but I enjoy homegrown talent.
We've decided to not separate them from their parents at the county line. :twisted:

Re: Mid Illini Preview

How does Metamora look for the upcoming fall? I think Metamora's ceiling is a 6-3 finish, no better than 5th in conference. And, I could certainly see them doing worse. They have a lot of skill position players. They do not have a lot of talent up front. I'll say 6-3 would likely land them better t...
