Welcome to the Iowa Prep Sports football quarterfinals chat! Our reporters will log on in a few minutes to take your questions. Feel free to leave them here in the meantime.
Happy Friday everybody. Last playoff games before the Dome.
Hey Jeff and Jeremiah. What games are you guys covering tonight?
We're both headed north ... him farther than me. I'll be at the 8-Man showdown between Springville and Don Bosco.
I'll be in Minneso...I mean Decorah for a Class 3A showdown between Decorah and Solon.
Should be a dandy, JH. I'll take the Demons for no other reason than a hunch.
I think most of us picked Washington to advance, JH, but home field advantage could be huge for Pella. I still like Washington, but should be very close.
The coaches make those picks, not the writers.
I'm not even sure Kennedy will score, Pilch.
Said a lot to me, KJ. I thought West was playing really good football going into that game. Had picked West to the quarters, if I remember correctly. PV always looked like the most susceptible top seed.
Ouch...We thought Kennedy fans didn't like Linder's 32-point "prediction" one week.
Amazing how close geographically the 4 schools in 4A Eastern Iowa are. Kennedy-Xavier right up street on 42nd. Bett and PV are VERY close together as well.
I would agree, Jeremiah. Wouldn't surprise me to see Bulldogs at the Dome.
KDEC in Decorah, Jo. Not sure about locally.
KDEC might have it online.
I'd like to see Regina play 4A. LOL. It'd be interesting.
I think Regina would compete in 4A legitimately, and still be a power in 3A. What they did to Solon early in the year goes directly to that. With a coaching staff like that, anything is possible.
I know there are two stations according to the MV AD when I asked for space in the press box. My guess might be KMCH as one, but don't quote me on it. KCJJ could be there since ICH and ICW are out.
Just checked KCJJ website. It's got nothing. Hawkeye hoopsters play tonight, so that might pre-empt football.
Kevin Schuchmann and Tom King will have the call from Delhi for the MV and Regina game at KMCH
Yeah, Mary, I'll need a spot in Decorah tonight. Thanks!
And don't forget to treat that Schuchmann guy with total respect, Pilchy. He's part of the family.
I'm staying away from the whole Regina in 3A/4A talk. They have a big win against a 3A school early in the season, but there's just no way of really knowing how a team would do throughout an entire 9-game season and playoffs. I had the same feeling when Solon had the same talk around it.
