Re: Mid-Illini 2019-20

Re: Dantonio retiring at MSU

Bernstein is saying that they forced him out. The bonus might have been his “please go away” bonus. Would not be surprising. Pretty pathetic if there is truth to the allegation he ignored the warnings he got from his staff and AD about Auston Robertson. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/coll...

Re: Pat Ryan’s choice

IMO, which really is that, Metamora should go outside and get someone who will change the whole dynamics of the team. After 32 years if I were a fan I just might want to see something else. However I also am inclined to believe that the administration will not go outside the district to name the ne...

Bad officiating regardless, at some point the chirping has to stop. It apparently didn't. Bad image for the school(s) and the IHSA. Embarrassment comes to mind

Re: Chicago Bears 2019

Despite what we sometimes think, the coaching in the league is pretty darn good. The opposition has a year + of game film on Nagy play calling. It's also pretty obvious that Nagy has stressed the importance of MT staying in the pocket and the result he has taken away the very thing that MT did well....

Re: 2019 Pairings Night Thread

Pekin gets Thorton Harvey in first round. Whoever wins that one will go home in second round after meeting up with Nazareth from La Grange. I know a little about Nazareth - they have an incredible QB who is JJ McCarthy. He's going to Michigan next year - some incredible video of him I believe McCar...

Re: Green Bay Packers 2019

I don't know what to think of the game against KC. While they have some dynamite play-makers, the Chiefs have some key players either out, or significantly hobbled. This is the type of game McCarthy led teams typically dirtied their pants. On the road, slight favorite. Past history it has been a rec...

Re: Mitchell Trubisky

Boy Redbird, I don't know. Eli is not that much of an upgrade (a little I agree) and plus he would have to learn a whole new system...interesting thought but if the Bears did something like that, in my opinion the QB would have to be a better QB than Eli at this stage... I agree it is tricky. My th...

Well one QB today who did worse than Trubisky was Jameis Winston - 46 QB rating, 1 TD and 3 INT....Baker Mayfield wasn't so hot either - 64 QB rating, also 1 TD and 3 INT, which is funny because Mayfield had ripped Trubisky a few weeks ago for not being a good QB....

Re: Mitchell Trubisky

The big unknown for all of us(the general fan who doesn't understand it) is salary cap. Trubisky is in 3rd year of rookie contract and will be looking to get "paid" after this year, if he even has a marginally good year. Can you hear what Dak Prescott is talking number wise?.
