    I'll take West Dubuque over Solon, 41-20. I think WD has too many weapons and defense is too solid.

    Solon has such a wide- open offense that anything can happen.

    Good year and fight out of Solon to get to the finals. This is Western Dubuque's though. WD by 20+.

    Think 3A is a little bit down overall this year, but it just seems to be WD's year. Don't think Solon's D will be able to stop them. Miller will have to have a monster game for Solon to win

    Solon appears to be the underdog in this one. But, with this being Coach Miller's son's final game, and maybe even his own final game if he decides to finish with his son...I could see Solon coming up with a special performance tonight.

    I've seen enough WD seasons end in heartbreak the past 10 years to not believe that the Miller's will have a storybook ending in Solon. Even if WD has an extremely talented team yet again.

    Western Dubuque 37, Solon 10 as the 3rd Q in waning moments. Dominant performance.

    Final--Western Dubuque 37, Solon 17 as the Bobcats win their second state championship in football since 2001.

    Western Dubuque was really good. Impressive performance. Would have made a nice story for Solon to win it this season, but WD was just too strong.
    Saw Coons was injured. Hope that he is alright, he’s a really good football player.
    Coach Miller has done a great job with the football program at Solon.
    Congratulations to Western Dubuque.

    Torn ACL on Coons.

    Solon would have to have played a near perfect game to win. Two fumbles inside the 30 proved very costly.

    Ah, that’s terrible. Coons is a great basketball player too. Believe he was going to a Dakota college for football. Hopefully he’ll be able to heal up and be ready to go for college.

    I don't think he is wrong, in all honesty the quality of teams in 3A this year was probably Western Dubuque, then a group of 5 challenging to be the second best team in the state. I would say that Solon, SBL, Lewis Central, North Scott, Xavier are that group.

    I see those teams competing every year with one another in the Semi's. I would add Pella and Harlan - tradition repeats itself. There will be an outlier every 4-6 years, but for the most part WD, Xavier, NS, DA, Solon, CBLC, SBL, Pella and Harlan will be winning (with the title being East of 35 for most of those). Solon "may" drop to 2A in the next cycle or two.
