Re: 4A-6A Title Games Thread

Re: 1A-3A Title Games Thread

Williamsville/Byron is the most exciting game I've ever seen. Yes, even more so than Rochester/Metamora '09.

Illini received a vote in new AP 25 poll.

:king
Safe to say after getting hammered by lowly Northwestern, at home, they won't be getting any votes.

Tough day Illini sports. Illini Volleyball losing to Northwestern likely knocked them out of the NCAA Tournament.

Without a doubt the most obnoxious coach in the State.
Most obnoxious, I dunno about that. But, IMHO, he is the BEST high school football coach in the state.

Re: Where are we headed this weekend?

Games of interest for me:

Morrison at A-W
Carroltton at Athens
PBL at Princeton
Wheaton St Francis at Coal City
Clifton at Fieldcrest

If I wanted to get two games in I could do Chatham at NLP(2:00), Wheaton St Francis at Coal City(2:00) or Flossmoor at Frankfort(1:00) then Mascoutah at JCA(6:00).

Re: 4A-6A Second Round Matchups

Anyone who follows 4A or IVC, what are the Ghost's chance of going to the championship in 4A? As soon as I saw the pairings I was disgusted by the IHSA once again. 4A North is absolutely loaded while the South, as evident by IVC being a #1 seed is ridiculous. 5A North is also criminal while the Sou...

What the hell happened to Sterling?
Sterling is in the Western Big 6 while St. Rita is in the CCL/ESCC (Green). St. Rita has only played one team this year with a losing record. This game didn't surprise me at all.

Re: Round 1 Playoff Scores

As usual, IHSA Playoff scores are not on their site....What would it take for the IHSA to hire someone to post scores soon after the games, Duh. In all the sports, it's my understanding the AD's of each home site are provided a code to enter scores on IHSA. No scores, not IHSA fault. Again, as I un...

If you are going with the Peoria schools and MI, I agree that the QB from Central should be strongly considered. Honestly, I don't know enough/seen enough to make an educated guess!

Re: POY

For the MI, give it to the running back from Morton - Glatz? Don’t think it has ever gone to a sophomore that I recall. Being a Sophomore is a tough task indeed. Of course, regardless of year, give it to the best. My gut says it goes to someone like: Gabe Hernandez(QB) ... Peoria High Cole Watkins(...
