Re: NFL Draft

The Packers seem to be drafting to annoy Rodgers enough to retire or hold out. Stokes was the 10th ranked corner in the draft with a 3rd round grade and Packers draft him 29th while round 1 graded WR and OT were sitting there. One thing is most of us forget when analyzing picks , the Packers have t...

Re: Pekin Seraching For New Varsity Boys Coach

I wonder if Pekin will look in house such as Jeremy Crouch (is he still at Pekin - I know he was head coach at Illini Bluffs and then became assistant to Walraven years back) or will the school look outside for an established coach? Since Walraven was an in house hire, I would like to see the schoo...

Re: Pekin Seraching For New Varsity Boys Coach

I saw today on the Pekin school website that Pekin high school is searching for a new varsity boys basketball coach. Anyone know what happened to Coach Walraven? Did he resign, going to a new school or was he fired? Anyway, wish the best for Walraven, seemed like a quality person who had mixed resu...

Re: Green Bay Packers 2020

Nice game yesterday, especially by offense against pretty solid D. I know Donald was limited, but overlooked is Pack was wo their All Pro left tackle, yet offensive line played well. One beef, going for 2 too darn early in game after the fumbled pat on 2nd td. Rams got within 7 and that point loomed...

Re: Illini Football

This does not include transfers. Illini have 5 or 6 transfers coming in again this year. Transfers were big last year so hopefully the guys this year make a difference like last year. There are also a few guys coming off injury who can make a big impact. Doesn't change the fact they're dead last. N...

Re: Dantonio retiring at MSU

Bernstein is saying that they forced him out. The bonus might have been his “please go away” bonus. Would not be surprising. Pretty pathetic if there is truth to the allegation he ignored the warnings he got from his staff and AD about Auston Robertson. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/coll...

IMO, which really is that, Metamora should go outside and get someone who will change the whole dynamics of the team. After 32 years if I were a fan I just might want to see something else. However I also am inclined to believe that the administration will not go outside the district to name the ne...

Despite what we sometimes think, the coaching in the league is pretty darn good. The opposition has a year + of game film on Nagy play calling. It's also pretty obvious that Nagy has stressed the importance of MT staying in the pocket and the result he has taken away the very thing that MT did well....
