    Non-district games

    Keokuk will travel to Knoxville Week 2 as originally scheduled but still looking for a Week 1. Chiefs originally scheduled to host North Scott but neither side was very interested in playing that.

    2020 Season

    21 games for a regular season is insanely low plus the lack of holiday tournaments. We've beat that horse to death on these boards, so I'm sorry I mentioned it at the risk of hijacking this thread. By comparison, IL teams can play as many as 31 regular season games. The absolute most a 3A or...

    2020 Season

    I have taught and coached in both states. Other than the fact I find Iowa's basketball structure very limiting, this is true in everything related to education and high school sports.

    2020 Season

    In a way, what I'm about to say saddened me, but I totally understood the kid's point of view: I had a senior tell me right before schools officially shut down for the year that he honestly didn't care at that point. He just wanted to know so he could move on. As bad as it is to lose seasons...

    2020 Season

    I've been told by the AD at my school June 1st is no longer the start date, that's when the state will give their next update on the summer sports schedule including offseason workouts for the other sports.

    That's kind of why I asked. I didn't realize he was an alum.

    Openings/Coaching Changes 2019-20

    How good was Solon before Miller took over? That's odd that he would have been at three schools in three years winning 7 total games and was still hired at Solon.

    BB Coaching Openings

    Burlington returns literally everyone, except one senior who played a little bit off the bench. Plus, their JV and Freshmen teams were both undefeated. I know that sometimes doesn't mean much, but they should be incredibly deep. Mt. Pleasant wasn't as deep, really only played 7 maybe 8 guys...

    Will there be a 2020 season?

    I totally agree with you. I will say our principal has passed on that IF we have to continue this into the fall, the online learning will not be voluntary, which is the model most schools chose to finish out this year. So, I think at least the higher ups are preparing for the possibility this...

    BB Coaching Openings

    I've been told the Mt. Pleasant and Burlington openings are related, meaning the Mt. Pleasant coach Ackey (sp?) is going to Burlington...but I haven't seen anything official or reported on announcing the Mt. P opening or a Burlington hire...

    Realignment Classifications

    This is my take as I'm not sure all of us are even defining "complex" the same way. If you draw up a jet sweep play (I'm not including a QB read or RPO element here) it's literally one of the simplest plays in football. The OL reach blocks, possibly pulling a playside guard, while the skill...

    Realignment Classifications

    Expensive in football terminology generally means a play a lot of practice time must be devoted to to become good at it. I must admit the "complexity of jet sweep" is not a discussion I ever expected to develop on this board...

    Realignment Classifications

    The thing about "running up the score" is the score alone doesn't automatically mean the winning team was displaying bad sportsmanship. I've been on the wrong end of an 84-16 game and I can honestly say the other team didn't do anything wrong. There were several special teams and defensive...

    Realignment Classifications

    I don't think you can anyway justify "rewarding" teams for playing up or punish them for playing down when ultimately the teams don't have final say in who they play. All they do is put in requests for ND play and these requests are not always recognized by the state association.

    2020 Schedules

    Most IL schools have their schedules set a year in advance with perhaps a couple open dates to fill. It's yet another sign of how behind the times the boys association is in how they do the scheduling and not at all fair to potential out-of-state opponents that schools have to wait for the...

    2020 Schedules

    Keokuk was listed with a very tough slate. The Chiefs are coming off a 6-3 year and return a decent amount of talent. They were listed as opening at home with North Scott and then playing at Pella Week 3.
