Waukon really hasn't played anybody yet, which bodes well for Union. Still, I'd take the Indians at home by a touchdown. Maybe two. But yes, Union has a shot. Whenever you have the best played on the field, you have a shot.
Sure, Union has a chance. Waukon by 10
Still shocked by that one, Jeff.
Very tough remaining schedule for the Cougars, Jeff. But a heck of a win last week.
I think Cascade wins through Week 8. Interesting to see the final regular season game vs. Beckman
I think Williamsburg wins with a late score. Think opposite of the Grinnell/Wburg ending for the Raiders.
Maybe a Donohoe to Schultz TD pass to go ahead late
I'll say Cascade goes 4-2, 6-3. Loses to Beckman, beats Camanche, splits CPU/Mount Vernon.
You guys talked with Williamsburg coach Curt Ritchie on today's podcast. What was each of your biggest takeaways from that conversation?
Raiders have a nice balanced attack.
His concern for Washington's physicality.
You can go and listen to us with Coach Ritchie at our weekly podcast at www.iowaprepsports.com
That he's a heck of a guy for allowing us to interview him.
It's a great addition to our podcast. Kudos to KJ for the idea and the efforts in making it happen.
You can revisit our previous interviews, which include Iowa City West's Brian Sauser and Cedar Rapids Xavier's Duane Schulte
Who would you all name the state MVP of the first half of the season?
Which coach(es) would you all like to hear from in upcoming weeks?
Boy, I don't feel equipped to answer that one. Not sure of all the candidates statewide ...
How about Gazette/IPS area MVP right now, boys?
I was wondering the same thing.
We're not necessarily a promotional tool for programs. We want relevant and interesting subjects. With that said, there are plenty of candidates from smaller programs.
Ones we will look into and consider.
We've got plenty of people following along — don't be shy with questions! Which schools do people want to hear about?
Call me crazy, but I think Elias Nissen of Springville deserves some consideration.
Area players...I'd go with Jack Kline. I know stats aren't everything but his ability to score so far (in 11-man) has been astounding
Jack Kline of BGM? Elias Nissen of Springville? Nate Boland of Iowa City West?
Nissen leads the state in scoring. 188 total points.
South Winn QB Garrett Bohach has put up some big numbers for an explosive offense.
You know, Xavier Washpun of City High is having a heck of a season. 890 yards rushing, 10 TDs, 8 YPC average.
Xavier Washpun is a candidate. Without him, is City High having as good of a start it has. I was not expecting 4-1 start for Little Hawks
Can never count out Jay Scheel.
Midseason coach of the year is ... ?
Ryan Parmely of Maquoketa Valley leads 1A in rushing and is top 10 in tackles.
I would say Lone Tree, Shari ...
