Re: Mid-Illini 2019-20

Panthers missed free throws and blew lay-ups all night. You cannot expect to win against any team with that combination. With the possession at the end of the game, down by 1 pt., I still cannot figure out why the ball was not in Vanderheydt's hands and they didn't try to get a shot in the paint. Th...

Re: Babcook Field

Same capacity (2500) as home bleachers at Metamora. Looks like Malone’s are higher w/steeper grade but Babcook version is a little longer.

Re: Babcook Field

The new bleachers are moving along at a rapid pace.
They are impressive. Will there will be walking access underneath the bleachers at the top of the hill? I would hope the next stadium improvements in the near future would be the renovation of the east side restrooms and concessions.

Re: Babcook Field

Bleachers construction was to already be started. However, the bid process for concrete did not get done in a timely matter and everything else stemmed upon that process. So, looking at May of 2019. There are some pretty unhappy people that this isn’t getting done, yet again. I hope they do some maj...

Re: The Washington Panthers

37-30 Washington gets the win. It was a difficult game to watch. Both teams looked sluggish and missed a ton of shots. Panthers had a strong 4th quarter, finally came alive.

Re: The Washington Panthers

Going into Lincoln Saturday night and beating a pretty good Railers team is no small task. This Panthers team is better than their record, that’s for sure.

Re: 2017 ToC

Points given up by Washington in this years TOC= 282. Total points given up the first four regular season games last season = 139. This team is missing a lot of parts. On top of their talent deficiencies on offense, they show no moxy, intestinal fortitude or guts on defense. Very atypical of a KB co...

Re: 2018 football

Washington returns 8 on offense and 7 on defense. A lot of them played both sides of the ball. A loaded soph class should help provide depth, possibly allowing more platooning.

Re: 2017 ToC

Well, one encouraging thing about the Panthers, they couldn’t possibly play worse than they did tonight. It was brutal. The kid from Confluence was a one man wrecking crew. He made just about every shot he took. Single handedly beat Washington tonight. Possibly the worst opening performance from a P...

Re: The Washington Panthers

Washington will have a decent sized front line this season. 6-8, 6-7, 6-6. Throw in a couple more 6-4 to 6-6. Not sure how deep this team will be but the eight or so kids that will be in the rotation, will be good.

Hard tell what Canton has. They've played two terrible teams. Maybe LG fans can shed some light. Even though there is no common opponent, the following is interesting. Canton beats Charleston by 13 Mahomet beats Charleston by 12 Washington beats Mahomet by 41 (shut out) Not sure if that means much t...

The last two seasons, Walter was on track to shatter the career rushing record with his frosh-soph seasons. The first two weeks of this season, in comparison, he has barely touched the ball. I find that strange.

Re: Morris @ Washington

Die hard Panther fan here but I'm just not sure we have the horses up front to hang with the Redskins. I would put our skilled guys up against anyone. Makes me think we will have to open it up in order to have a chance to survive. Sustaing drives will be our best friend. We need to keep our defense ...

Re: Washington @ Mahomet-Seymour

Kudos to Coach Crouch tonight. In this day and age of running up the score, he plays the bench most of the 2nd half. Could've easily dropped 60 pts on MS tonight. Panthers had too many penalties. Running game looked pretty good. Nice win but we have several things to clean up before next week.

Re: Players to watch Big 12/Mid Illini

Panthers are poised to put up a lot of points this season. Even though they have a solid backfield, I could see them running the spread and throwing more than than the last couple of seasons. Not sure what to expect from the defense. I'm guessing they will again have quite a few two way players.

2016-17 Mid Illini

Who has what and what are the expectations for the MI this season? I can only speak for the Panthers. With a lot of experience, they will still be a young team. They will have some size in the frontcourt. If those young men progress and gain some toughness, this team will be very successful. The bac...

I haven't heard too much this week about this matchup. I know the Orphans have a really good QB that is most of their offense. They have scored a lot of points. Not so sure about their level of competition. I'm expecting a real battle Saturday. Panthers will need a solid 4 Q game to move to the quar...

PND @ Washington

Any thoughts or predictions on how this one will go? I think Panther fans may feel this is a tough matchup but I like the way this team has played the last couple of weeks. The offense seems to be clicking better. Besides a strong fast backfield, I'm not sure what else PND brings to the table.

Re: Week # 3 Scores & Updates

Panthers look very disinterested . Really surprised this defense continues to give up big plays and a lot of yards on the ground. Up 28-7 and driving to go up by 4 td's, instead a fumble and then a few minutes later it's 28-21. Last week we were beaten by a tremendous team that IMO will be a semifin...

What's the word on the MI teams this year? Strengths, weaknesses, etc. Washington returns several starters and a big, talented soph. class to provide depth.
