Re: 1A-2A Supersectional Matchups

My predictions:

1A:
--Madison
--Aurora Christian (upset special)
--Central A&M
--R-B (but wouldn't be surprised to see Fenger pull the upset)

2A:
--Orr
--Mater Dei
--Timothy Christian (but hopefully Fieldcrest has another upset in them)
--SHG (upset special)

Re: 1A Sectional Matchups

Nuts!! .... nothing really close to my home. :( Yeah. Closest for you would probably be Lewistown, right? Maybe there are a couple closer to you among the 2A sectionals. Ottawa is also similar in distance from Metamora as is Lewistown: Per Google Maps, 55.9 miles from Metamora to L-Town per their r...

Re: 1A Sectional Matchups

Kinda stinks for the three schools in west central Illinois having to go on the other side of Cahokia for a sectional. Travel to Dupo is now further complicated by the 10-month closure of I-255 between I-55/70 and I-64 in the Metro East for a resurfacing project. Effective starting last month. http...

Re: I don't have a warm, fuzzy feeling anymore!!

The only way 6 wins happens is with at least a 4-1 start to the season. Not impossible, but it's up to them to show it. It was only 8 years ago (2011) that Illinois started 6-0 then promptly coughed up the rest of the regular season--their only remaining win coming in that Kraft Macaroni and Cheese...

Re: State Finals returning to over-the-air TV

With Quincy Media (WEEK's owners) part of this new state tournament network, unless it's still early does anyone know which one of the WEEK stations (25.1 NBC, 25.2 ABC, 25.3 CW, and the new 25.4 Ion) will carry the tournament?

Thank Goodness!

Hopefully they will replace the commentators.
Unfortunately, if Quincy Media, who now owns WEEK, is involved in this new statewide network, I'm sure we will still be hearing Lee Hall on the PBP.

The only thing that will get him fired is losses. Especially to Michigan.
And hopefully one of these days, at least a few to Illinois too. Whenever the Illibuck game is played anymore because of the division setup.
