I don"t know if you noticed, but it appears to be a sunken, bowl-type syadium like Athens, though much bigger.  Looks like parking might be an issue and its a LONG hike to the visitors' side.  Nothing taken for granted,  but if we get by them, it looks like we'd see either Lemont at Lemont or Crete Monee at our home.

All.... Not sure how they handle parking. Two lots that I can see. Next to the stadium about 75 or so. One block down across from the school  (student parking) a big lot, easily fitting over a 150. Of course no parking signs all over.... Ratsy  :gocycs: :gocycs:

It'd be nice to take several thousand up. Take nothing for granted, let's hit the road.

They're not shy about their stadium either, calling it "

clearly one of the best, if not THE best high school football facility in the nation" in this informative page.

Rock Island QB threw 21 passes yesterday, but he also ran 20 times. It'll be fun to see how he does against this defense.

I take it you found the Shepard defense lacking?

All.... That was a difficult game to listen. The Shepard qb did have about a half dozen overthrows on receivers wide open. Both teams moved the ball well but one just couldn't consistently convert. Ratsy

They got tagged in the second half, but I think it was just one of those breakout days for the RI quarterback.  Even their anmouncer seemed a bit surprised.  That said, I don't believe either cpukd stop the Cycs with either Lee or Adams.  Our line is really peaking at the perfect time.  The O was opening up truck sized holes against Galesburg and the D was a brick wall.

As for the stadium-we played there when I was a sophomore. JV and varsity played that day - Game two of the regular season, before the conference - 1988. They came down here in 89, and that was the last meeting.

Nice stadium, but if I remember correctly not one of the best in the country. An older facility, concrete bleachers. It's a horseshoe, and in that respect it's very unique.

All.... Well Coach Dougherty from Galesburg is not shy about giving his opinion on the upcoming the game between the Cyclones and Rocks this Saturday. One can access the article on the main page of this site.

Highlights from the article directed at Rock Island.... Ratsy

I think Rocky's players are just as good or better

Across the board Rocky has better skill kids or better players  

Their receivers across the board are better than Griffin

Their team speed on defense is equal

The qb is better

Man, I wonder how those guys ever lost two games? Or how Galesburg stayed so close?

We looked.  I can't do this one. Long drive up, long drive home late at night, huge walking distances at staduum and an early day on Sunday.
