Anyone know who Metamora's non-conference opponents will be this year?
No. Still no week 1 game. :(
Elgin St Edward Central Catholic for week one, Jerseyville week 2. Both nonconference games are away this year :o . Week one in Chicago land and week 2 near St Louis. Going to be some late nights getting home.
If they can blame guns for killing people then I can blame my keyboard for misspellings.

.Well worth the inconvenience of the drive for two fairly easy wins.

With the conference schedule this year the varsity only has 3 home games.

For one whom seems to pay a decent amount of attention to the doings of the Redbirds you are a little off the mark on this one. For the Metamora teams a decade ago your assessment would be spot on and Redbird fans would be merely passing the time until the running clock started. While Metamora may very well be favorites in both games the days of seeing the Bird on the helmet and equating it to a win are over. Metamora will be replacing quite a bit both ways including the QB who saw most of the time in the three playoff games. Bird fans are optimistic about the year but as you well know until a player proves himself on the varsity level one can really never know exactly what they have.

Bird fans remember all too well the season opener in 2011 against an undersized Central Catholic team who was obviously playing up a class and then some as a result of the multiplier. The result was Redbird Nation driving home on I-74 that night with their tail feathers between their legs. No reason why that scenario could not repeat itself against St. Edwards as the school is eerily similar to Central Catholic.

Enjoy feasting on some Pioneers for years to come. :lol:
I favor capital punishment. But there are alot of cases where I don't think capital punishment applies (parking violations) and cases where it should be applied (murder, child molestation, illegal HS football recruiting).- BirdWatcher

.Now Reggie be nice. ;) The Pioneers wanted in and approached the conference. Fwiw it beats playing the Railsplitters. Interesting the Pioneers and the Greenwave have something in common unless it has changed neither field a freshman team. Redbirds by 17 plus in game one and 21 plus in game 2 regardless if you run the same four offensive plays the entire time. ;)

At it's current rate, no one will be fielding freshmen teams in 10 years because there won't be enough kids playing.
