    Updated Football Rankings - 9/20

    Some paper tigers on this list for sure. But you gotta go with what you’ve got with those great records

    IHSAA Revised Schedule

    Completely ridiculous take. All about the money? So you’re saying the players and coaches were so worried about their health that they didn’t want to play and were forced to by the state so it could make money? Baseball and softball happened because it was deemed safe enough to play and...

    Will there be a 2020 season?

    Shoot there aren’t even enough kids in the States for private schools anymore

    Favorite Fields in the State

    I agree with Pinehawk, the “Little Rose Bowl” has to be the most overrated field in Iowa. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice field but not worth all the slobber over. Terf fields are whatever. They’re all the same to me. Layout wise, I really like Williamsburg’s field. And there’s something...

    Will there be a 2020 season?

    Fear mongering works both ways. It’s rampant among the left and right. What better way to spread information than spewing opinions about things you know little to nothing about. It’s one thing when it’s football, something entirely different when it’s viruses, pandemics, and the economy. It’s...

    Will there be a 2020 season?

    Can’t play HS football when it’s controlled by the government. Illinois governor yesterday said be prepared for online learning in the fall. I know that’s Illinois, but that doesn’t make me optimistic. No school = no football

    Haha butt hurt? Are you the pot or the kettle? Trust me, you don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re close and you think you know, but you don’t know. So like I said before, maybe you shouldn’t comment like you do know. Also, the argument of having coaches get together and only schedule...

    Pretty obvious you don’t have a clue as to how the scheduling happens. Maybe you just shouldn’t comment on it

    Why is it that every time the discussion for number of playoff teams comes up there are a certain group of people that can’t get over the fact that an undeserving team or two might get in? You do realize that when 32 teams made the playoffs there were many more 3 and 4 seeds that won games than...

    2020 Schedules

    54 teams with 9 team districts makes the RPI useless. How would you determine wild cards, or byes if you went that route? Also, point differential would have to be back in play. Every system would have flaws. Go back to even districts (8 districts of 7 teams) and top two make it and people will...

    I didn’t realize there was an obligation to check up every couple hours. My bad I’ll work on that. Maybe... Balls, bats and footwear? The fact that those are the only examples you can think of proves my point (and btw I did say I don’t care about equipment). Those aren’t even close to the...

    I never said anything about coaching. I’m talking about the use of expensive equipment that gives teams an obvious advantage in a GAME. And don’t try to play it off like it’s not an advantage. If it wasn’t an advantage then why would teams shell out $1,500-$3,000 each year plus the up front cost...

    Wow! Glad to see you’re either 12 or you haven’t hit maturity yet. Either way I suppose it renders your opinion worthless tbh. Good job message board hero. You win!

    2020 Schedules

    So if you're a 1A school and you beat 2A Saydel or even 3A South Tama that should count more than beating West Sioux or OABCIG? Really? Now an interesting idea would be to use the win/loss percentage and then multiply by the class (A = 1, 1A = 2, 2A = 3...). So for example, beating 0-9 S...

    There are many advantages out there, most of which can be attributed to socioeconomic status. Better facilities, equipment, camps, and coaches (due to pay, history of success, demographics) lead to both higher chances for success and potentially more move-ins who weigh in athletic achievement...

    2020 Schedules

    The RPI has certainly made it more difficult to schedule nd games. My two cents, put less percentage on winning the games and more on opponent record (strength of schedule). I'm assuming the teams with the most trouble finding common opponents are those who are perceived to be dominant in...

    Way too early rankings 2020

    I know the sexy thing to do is crown Solon already, but they were Senior HEAVY this past season and are replacing multiple two and three-year starters on both sides. I do think they'll have a fairly easy go of it during the regular season, but I'm not putting them number one. To me, the team...

    I get the sentiment, but it's not that easy. Waukee's population is booming, WDM, not so much. Anybody remember when Waukee was 2A about 20 years ago? That said, with Waukee's continued expansion, it makes sense to split to keep the school from overpopulation. That's not the case for WDM...

    Actually, Solon's BEDS number is relatively unchanged (around 350). Their "drop" to 2A is due to a couple other schools leapfrogging them in population (Benton, BH-RV) and 4A dropping to 40 teams. Solon has always been one of the bottom schools in 3A BEDS numbers since they moved up around 10...
