Absolutely no depth over there. Top 4 teams way above everyone else. Seems that's usually the way it is in the CIML. Or District Whatever.
The top four teams are head and shoulders above the rest over there. Any four of those teams could win tonight with Waukee being the least likely. Ames earned my respect in their pull away from Urbandale last round.
Me too, KJ. I thought Urbandale would beat them. Sounds like Ames is explosive as heck.
Alex Coker is a really athletic RB. Sebelius is an athletic QB. They run spread out of the shotgun. Very physical the night I saw them.
Count me in among those surprised at Ames. Just didn't think they were all that impressive in the regular season.
Usually they are tainted souls of those who have been trapped in Hades for an extended period of time. Dean and Sam Winchester hunt them.
Deb, I think Adair-Casey vs. Wayne might be the biggest mismatch of any game in any class tonight.
Ames was impressive, but the numbers were put up against lackluster teams. Thought those numbers would decline as competition got better but 124 points against Indianola and Urbandale shows that is wrong.
I don't know for sure, Craig. For some reason I have the belief they are locked into 1A for a bit. Something to look into though. Maybe I'll have a better answer in the next chat.
Deb, you get a feel from talking to some of the Central Iowa reporters, who have seen Ames play. Since I respect their opinion, which is just an opinion, you get a better gauge than numbers in paper and on quikstats.
You betcha, Andrew. Gotta manager, yet? LOL.
JJ, what do you think are the chances Kennedy avenges its loss to Xavier?
Is anyone buying stock in Bettendorf after its win over IC West last round?
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!
