OK, ya'll. You have this handled. I'm checking out and concentrating on the baseball game. Enjoy Week 1 everyone!! And check out our thorough coverage of Friday's game late Friday night online and in Saturday's newspaper.
Isn't Maquoketa Valley's QB back. There was someone in their playoff loss to regina that impressed me and returned other than Parmely, but I'm blanking on exactly who.
Wahlert will be interesting. There is a lot of talk about Assumption and Xavier having success in 3A. Can't overlook the fact that Wahlert could benefit from the drop as well. Interested to see their game with Western Dubuque
All right, a quick game of Higher/Lower/Push. I'll give the Metro team and a number of wins. You say, higher, lower or push. The total is regular-season only ...
Not sure why I thought Dzaboff was back. Koopman and Huber could be good complements to Parmely.
Washington: 8 ... Xavier: 7 ... Linn-Mar, Prairie, Kennedy: all 5. Marion: 4. Jefferson: 4. Cedar Valley Christian: 1. And ... go.
Wash: push, Xavier: lower; Linn-Mar: lower, Prairie & Kennedy: push, Marion: push, Jefferson: higher, CVC: push.
Xavier push. Linn-Mar under. Jefferson over. CVC under. Washington over. Prairie push
Undefeated regular season for Wash, KJ?
Who is going to beat them if they are good as predicted? Plus, they don't leave the Metro until a Week 9 trip to Burlington. Only 3 games outside of Kingston. It's a favorable schedule
Thanks, Bigdog. Come back each week!
First pick fantasy draft? Cook isn't the first Regina I'd pick. I'd go with Jake Brinkman.
Agree with KJ. I think Washington and Bettendorf are a step (or two) above the rest of the 4As on this side of the state.
Someone asked for a surprise team earlier. How's this? 7-2 for Dubuque Hempstead.
I like Landen Akers or Isaiah Nimmers for CRW. I think there is a younger Arrington that might be coming up again, maybe?
Won't be 52-0 again. I'll guarantee that, 3A Fan.
South Winn just might get 'em.
south Winn is impressive. I like that team a lot. I really like Hageman and Rommes. They will pose fits for people. I don't like Waukon's chances after losing key players to graduation
Waukon lost a lot in Parker Hesse and Marcus Weymiller, so right there it's going to be more
Any more questions tonight?
I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Ohrt developed a good football program
