Re: College Football Cancellations

We shouldn’t shut the world down, but some are sure trying here in the USA. We need some normalcy back in our lives. College football gives us that.

Re: Chicago Cubs 2020

IMO Kimbrel isn’t missing zone that much. If he can just locate his pitches he should be fine. Still throwing 95-97. I am concerned about Schwarber bat.He is striking out at a 35% clip and his bat speed is not catching up to a low 90 mph fastball. Definitely a concern.

This team will be compared to the 1989 and 2005 teams. Let’s hope that they have a season to play.

Re: IHSA Announces New Schedule for 2020-21 Sports

What a cluster. The IDPH was suppose to take the lead, yet it appears the IHSA had to wait and follow Gov Pritzker and his guidelines. No offense, but what does his office know about scheduling sports. Nothing, and reading the PJS take it has only added to the confusion. Like, who’s on first?!

Re: 2020 MVC Recruits and Transfers

Not surprising. A streak shooter that plays no defense won’t make it in the NBA. NIU will have scorers however, as one of the freshman coming in is another Greene. Interesting conference matchups this year, if we play.

Re: IHSA Announces New Schedule for 2020-21 Sports

My only question is why the IESA went and took everything away in the fall. Same sports, different decisions. Don’t understand that at all. The kids will miss out jr high, then go directly into high school.

Re: IESA Cancels Fall Sports

Great read in PJS today. It is really hard to fathom that the IESA looked for guidance from Governor’s office and the IDPH, but got virtually no help. On the other hand, it said “emailed” them. A decision that affects so many and they emailed. And Blue, I do apologize for the remarks about referenci...

You know Blue, the thing I like/dislike about you is if I told you the sky was falling, you would want probably say it fell yesterday. You seem to disagree with just about everything someone else says. You must be related to Nancy Pelosi.

Bowing to politics, I’m sure shelter in place will once again be effective. Meanwhile I watched as 70 and 80 years olds, as many as 50 play pickle ball every day and it is ok. There is no sweat going on there! Never fear the IHSA will now follow, depriving all of these teenagers a chance to play spo...

Re: Predictions for 2020 Mid Illini

There is no IHSA anymore as I see it. Bowed to pressure. As I see it they will have little say on what happens anymore to IHSA sports. Like everything else, it will become political and run by Springfield. Unfortunate.

Re: NBA Insider Woj suspended by ESPN

ESPN has let Brian Kellerman get away with hate remarks for years, yet nothing is said. Jamele got away with same stuff until they tired of her. There is a great read about the history of injustice inside the ESPN to females by men still employed there. When I find the book, will post it.

Great article in today’s PJS on Health experts revising the rules again. I am in agreement with Washington head coach. You need to give it more than two days with this age group. Must be real frustrating for any coach. What health experts don’t look at is what these kids are doing if they don’t have...

From reading the PJS today, I get the feeling that the IHSA didn’t really like Peoria trying the take all approach in bidding for both girls and both teams. Greed perhaps? The girls wasn’t going anywhere, so they might have pushed the envelope too far. But the fact that Brad Underwood was behind the...
