    Beat down at Duchin today, stung.
    Lincoln Way East is likely 8a favorite and champion. Felt a little like the end of a super special era today. Golden Eagle youth feeder football numbers were way down. Just got a bad feeling.

    Hope I’m wrong. GBW football program is terrific, just wonder if they will keep getting the talent to compete for #1. It also hurts a ton when they are in the 8a (biggest schools) division.

    Hard to write about this game and be clear, concise and not misconstrued.

    LWE is called the "Beast" for a reason, defending champion with 4 D1 talents and depth, skill and great coaching. They were a 30-40 point favorite today.

    West was a very good, but not great, team... good athletes, but no stellar stars.

    Today, West played almost the worse game imaginable...turnovers, penalties...3 times they false starts to first and 20...two times they failed to catch a kickoff in the air after calling a fair catch...on 4th down with 17 seconds in the half they failed to run the clock out by fumbling to a TD, then on the ensuing kickoff, fumbled the kickoff and let up the next play for a TD with seconds left...14 points in less than 14 seconds. It was a sub, sub par showing. That said, they had an opponent that would have beat them with a good to great showing. Yes, they inherited players when the other LW school closed, yes they have more enrollment, but that is a good team, none the less.

    The 8A field is difficult with many strong teams...LWE, arguably, thee strongest...25 wins in a row I think, 7-8 shutouts with 6-7 running clocks..very, very good team.

    Congrats to the 2018 Hitters on another great season and 11th straight playoff appearance.

    Just announced...

    IHSA schools pass football districting proposal (link) Daily Herald

    In a landmark decision, Illinois High School Association member schools Tuesday approved Proposal 23, which will abolish football conferences statewide beginning with the 2021 season, in favor of a new districting format.

    Proposal 23 directs the IHSA to implement a football scheduling system for regular-season varsity games that would involve the following:

    •A 9-week regular season;

    •Playoff classes will be determined in advance of the season;

    •Schools from each class will be placed into eight geographic groups by the IHSA office to play a round-robin schedule

    •The remaining games on the regular season schedule will be arranged by the individual schools at their discretion;

    •The top 4 teams in each of the eight groups qualify for the playoffs, based on games played within each group.

    It's in the article. Blah blah, difficult to schedule non-conference games. Blah blah, too much conference jumping lately.

    Pretty good recap on both the overhaul of the football regular season and playoffs, and, the elimination of football and other sports and activities by the Hinsdale High School District 86 board
