I have a source that said North Cedar looked solid in its scrimmage vs. Mount Vernon.
in the area? not a sleeper but I tjink West Delaware will be very good.
You know, Michael, we were having that discussion today. Friday will tell a lot, going against a D-I offensive lineman like Bryce Meeker.
Michael, I think if Linn-Mar can give up 20-24 points a game instead of 42, it will win its share of games.
I think the season will be rough
I know Forsyth is really excited about this year's freshman class ... good things coming in a while.
I'm in the "wait and see" camp on Linn-Mar. Like Linder said, if the defense is marginally better, it could be a decent year.
To be fair, Linder, he was really excited about the sophomore class last year. Sometimes those young classes don't pan out.
I think you know the answer to that one, bigdog!!
I think there's some bitterness involved in Xavier's moving to 3A, Bigdog. I don't think that's any secret.
My guess is somebody will play them when they cycle again in 2016 & 17.
Worked out OK for everybody, I guess. Other schools made whatever point they wanted to make, Xavier made itself a nice, interesting schedule.
I really don't think anyone was hiurt by how the schedules worked out for everyone. Sure CRK/CRX would have been nice but the schedules producesd some interesting matchups.
Maybe Week 8 vs. Xavier ... maybe not.
Nope. I think the only game Regina could lose is Xavier, but I'm saying it now that Regina goes 14-0 again.
Obviously, the Xavier spot on Regina's schedule is the one to look at initially.
Calling it now. Xavier ends Regina's streak.
Bigdog, mentioned this on social media, Xavier is a rare team that faces two defending state champs in a regular season scheduke. last team to do it was West Branch in 2012.
Fun bet, JJ. You take Xavier. I take Regina. I lose I wear a Twins shirt for a week. You lose and you wear a Jeter short for a week. Deal?
Regina has some intriguing matchups. Solon Week 1 is a big game. West Marshall is another one that is interesting
I like that bet. Have to post photos as well!
I don't think Regina will have problems with either though
OK guys, if we had a area fantasy league, who's your first pick? Parmely?
Bigdog, one more post like that and I am putting you on my payroll. Self-esteem is at an all-time high now. Of course, people will question your sanity.
I think Ed-Co makes the playoffs. Not a strong district after Maquoketa Valley and Lisbon.
Who beats them (in the regular season), go hawks? I don't think anybody.
I'm interested in a team like BGM this season. They had such a great senior class that brought them unparalleled success at the school. How does Jerod Burns follow that up. of course, he is a former Audubon Wheeler and Buena Vista Beaver, so he'll figure something out.
