Re: St. Louis Cardinals 2018

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...

Re: Manual's Josh Ivory Beating Ref...

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...

Re: Mid Illini Preview

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. Example of one pr...

Re: No Excitement For Metamora?

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.

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...

Re: Metamora vs Marian Catholic

Even if Metamora gets a three instead of two, Marian STILL had chance to win. Sure, Metamora had better chance to win if they are given a three, but Marian still had 5-6 seconds to make a shot, which they did. Who is to say they wouldn't have made a 2 or 3 point shot if Metamora was given a three? ...

Re: Barry Bonds/Pete Rose

Their playing accomplishments are well documented in the Museum section in Cooperstown. Expect Rose will be voted into the Hall after his death. This prevents him from profiting on HOF status. Bonds will get in after writers make him wait. :roll:

The weak mid illini doesnt prepare them for whats to come.
Since the undefeated Mid-Illini Champion just played the Mid-Illini 2nd place team in the State Semi game, what downstate 5A conference would you prefer they play in to prepare for a deep playoff run? :scratch
