Re: Dunlap vs Washington

The championship games will be held in Dekalb Thanksgiving weekend.................You can twist past performances any way you want, but that and $5 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks. I am sure Sterling and Phillips are fine teams, and one of them will have a chance to win a state title. But...

Re: Expanding football playoffs

Considering the number of blowouts in the first two rounds in the current system, this seems like a pretty dumb idea. Do we really need 4-5 and 3-6 teams getting slaughtered by 9-0 and 8-1 teams? Why?? Even less smart than 4 class basketball. :gagr

Re: Washington vs Richwoods Round 3

The Panthers' running game is absolutely on fire. The line has just dominated the last 4 or 5 weeks, and with Coach Crouch spreading the ball between Walter, Schelly, Durr, and Fischer, defenses seem to be on their heels. Even though the defense is giving up some points, they are getting turnovers a...

Re: Week 9

40-20 Washington with 1:28 to go Final This may have been a play-calling issue, TBH. The first Washington defensive stop changed the momentum of the game. On 2nd and long, Morton puled out a gadget play that was a pass back to Donald. It was first-own distance with a little room to run but was off ...

Re: Gho$t$ asked me ...

Man, that is some brutal travel.................Would IVC be better off just taking their beating in the M-I. Seems like there have been lots of conference troubles for them since their departure. I have heard from a few parents that are not happy with this conference either.

Re: Week 5 Frosh scores

I guess they need something to feel good about..... Washington sophs lost their first game last night at Mt Zion, 34-...

Re: Week 3 Washington @ Canton

I thought Canton played pretty well, but you have not heard much about how well the Panthers "D" held up against a high powered offense. Two blown coverages allowed the LG's to get into scoring position, but Washington pretty much stymied their run game. Wells is a great player for sure, n...

Re: Week 3 Washington @ Canton

Penalties against Morris did not help the Panthers, and I think they struggled with the size Morris brought to the table. They are big! That being said, it was a game that Washington could have won. I think they beat Canton by 10 or so. Not sure they have the size or skill of a team like Morris, and...

Re: PJ Star

I love reading a newspaper as much as anyone, but the JS product is unfortunately deteriorated to the point it is hard to justify a subscription. I can't tell you how much it hurts to say that, mind you. My warning is that lack of in-depth local HS sports coverage will drive sub numbers even lower. ...
