All.... A tremendous year among many doubters ( mostly from the public school fans) on how this season  would  end up. Ratsy P.S. A  "reckoning" is coming next year not only in the CS8 but the playoffs as well. Ratsy

The Prep Bowl

09 November 2017 - 12:17 PM

All.... This is kind of interesting if you don't want to end the season. It's kind of a private versus public thing started quite a long time ago. I know it's limited to just some teams up north. Looking at who is left to make the bowl it appears you can win up to one game in the IHSA tournaments and play.

Last week Chicago (Hubbard)  beat Chicago (Payton) 56-7 and will play Chicago (Curie) Friday. Marmion will play St. Ignatius this week as well. Both of these teams the Cyclones defeated are listed as underdogs in those games.  Ratsy

Final A.P. Top Ten 6A Poll

26 October 2017 - 09:59 AM

All.... The season really flew by. New in the top ten dropping from 7A into 6A when the 256 playoff qualifiers were announced is Willowbrook. The Warriors have an enrollment of 1888.00.

Postseason games can be difficult to predict. I think though three teams in the top ten who are lower playoff seeds have a good shot at coming out with a round 1 victory  They are Montini, Cary-Grove, and Providence. Ratsy
