North Linn needs a whole lot of Jacob Rawson for the win.
Beermann said the Waukon starters may have 2 whole games under their belts right now, considering most of their games have gotten out of hand early
Spirit Lake has established a good "program" apparently. Just reloading. Believe they lost a bunch of seniors from last season's team.
But I think Mediapolis woulda won that championship game by 2 touchdowns at least had its quarterback not gotten hurt in the semifinals.
I think a lot of the dominant teams in the area are that way. BGM, Xavier, also ...
I wonder how much that could affect them in a close game. One thing is they are fresh. Second, they may hurt for conditioning or be rusty.
We can float suggestions to 9.2 producers, but we don't really have much influence on the final say for what games are telecast.
Shocked that Easton Valley only beat Elkader Central by a point.
To me, the 8-man game is so very difficult to handicap, so to speak.
Senior has been very disappointing, Seth. Not nearly as good as most people thought they'd be, coming off a really good 2012 season.
Lancers, I think there is a good rivalry there with CRP/ICW. West's Coach Sauser said he expected a tough, tough game at CRP. It turned out that way. ICW/CRX would be extremely tough game for both teams
Some teams know how to play other teams. I think that's the case with Prairie and West.
Springville isn't a cute little story about a first-time playoff team any more. For this year at least, the Orioles are 8-man giants. Elias Nissen has to be among the best 8-man players in Iowa. Springville would be extremely competitive in Class A.
I liked Linder's comparison on the podcast of Dubuque Hempstead is the Dubuque Senior of a year ago and vice versa.
