    2018 High School Football

    On my end... -For the the first time in five years, Mark Morris is 2-1 after a 47-0 drubbing of Fort Vancouver. After a opening day disaster with Kelso, the Monarchs have won two in row by a combined score of 95-14. At least they're in better shape then R.A. Long... poor, poor Lumberjacks. Then again, they did face the defending 2A state champs in Hockinson, who has taken down two big time 2A powers in Tumwater and the dreaded Archbishop Murphy. -Kelso is unbeaten after taking down Heritage at home. Not bad for the Hilanders. -Kalama got edged by Adna, but that's no shocker. -Meanwhile in Iowa, Denison enters district play with a sharp 3-1 record and a pretty nice RPI ranking of 15th. I forgot to mention that Iowa has introduced a brand RPI system for the at-large berths to the playoffs. The district winners automatically qualify and that's it. The other seven slots are decided by RPI. -Audubon is another school from my neck of the woods. They scored 104 points last week... that's not a typo. They won 104-50 over Woodbine.

    Not really. Arizona just looks old and tired... it's only a matter of time before they trot Rosen out to get slaughtered like the newborn lamb that he is.

    2018 NFL Season

    The Chiefs have perfected the art of Full Reid so masterfully that it takes one quarter to blow a 21-0 lead. Especially when that last touchdown shouldn't of counted since Big Bent was past the 14 yard line. And what the hell is in the water in Tampa Bay??? The Eagles can't stop a 2nd string (should be 1st string) QB??? What madness is this?

  6. The West Coast League introduced the newest member of the league today... introducing the Ridgefield Raptors.

    2018 NFL Season

    Since some people out there consider ties to be half a win, does that mean that half of the Bud Light fridges open up in Cleveland today?

    2018 High School Football

    A few things on my neck of the woods... -It's going to a long year in Longview if the performances of Mark Morris (31-14 losers to Kelso) and R.A. Long (40-14 losers to Vancouver College, BC) are any indication. I also wonder if the teacher strike played a small role... if any. -Whakiakum had a double header event on Saturday where they hosted Colfax in the afternoon game while Napavine and Liberty (Spangle) met in the early game. This was planned after the Mules dropped Naselle in favor of a two year series with Colfax and their coach heard about the Napavine-Liberty game and thought that it would be awesome to have a double header involving these schools. Next year, it's at Spangle. -Woodland and Kalama had a shootout. A 48-40 victory for the Beavers, but the Chinooks made it tough for them. Also... In Iowa, there was a game that set records as Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson defeated Sioux City North 99-81.... yes, that is the final score. No, it's not a typo. That actually happened. The bad news is my alma mater (Denison-Schleswig) has to face CBTJ this week.

    Minor League Baseball team names

    I know that in my neck of the woods you have identities that are well known to this area (Tacoma Rainiers, Everett Aqua Sox, Hillsboro Hops, Vancouver Canadians, etc.) and that works. I feel that if you are going to change things up, you want to change it to something that is local and well known to the local fan base.
  11. That was the last time Kansas football was good. Man, that felt like a generation ago. Now they're known as a punching bag... a blue and red punching bag that just got a shipment of fail.

    Minnesota Amateur Hockey League - 1941 Finals

    Who knew that Thunder Bay would go undefeated and then falter at the end? I wonder if their star didn't get injured, would it play out differently? And with the 40's coming, will there be teams affected by WW2?

    2018 High School Football

    Those schools are familiar to me. I believe that Graham-Kapowsin has the state's best player and he has already committed to Washington. It's also the first weekend for football in Washington and Oregon, so here's a few games to look at in my neck of the woods... Mark Morris at Kelso: The Monarchs have fallen off the map after a 10 win season in 2013 in winning just five games in a four year span. The Hilanders, on the other hand, are coming off a playoff berth and are expected to compete in the Greater St. Helens League once again. Also, it's the debut of the new turf field at Kelso. Kalama at Woodland: Two of the area's best quarterbacks face off in the '8 Mile War'. The Chinooks are the defending 2B champions while the Beavers made the postseason last year.

    2018 High School Football

    When I was in school, all the students had a chance to buy an activity card. This card would give you free access to any event at home. I don't know if they still do it, but I enjoyed it.
  15. It's over, Ohio State... I have the high ground.
  16. It is, in a way. Coaches like Meyer aren't gods, they're men... and man is fallible.
  17. 3 games?? That's pretty much a slap on the wrist here... I like to think that if Ohio State wasn't winning as much as they are now under Urban Meyer, he would of been fired today. It also proves that winning is the ultimate deodorant. When your team wins, no one cares about the cracks that are starting to show... when you start to lose, then those cracks I mentioned become fault lines that could trigger a seismic change.

    Minnesota Amateur Hockey League - 1941 Finals

    The two teams playing for the Kellogg Cup have a combined record of 42-3-3. This series will be the stuff of legends.

    Solar League Baseball - A Future History: 2538 Season

    Looks like the move to Pamoja has paid off. As the Emperors, they couldn't win much.... as the Guardians, they have back-to-back playoff trips and now, a Galactic Series title.

    The Hounds are free! The past is dead... long live Hibbing and their mighty Hounds!! I like this... it's a neat take on the original story of sports fan fiction.

    Solar League Baseball - A Future History: 2538 Season

    Probably. Callisto has won five straight division titles and only have one Galactic championship to show for it. It feels like the Braves' reign in the NL East through most of the 90's.

    2018 High School Football

    In my neck of the woods, Kelso is getting a brand new turf field installed in time for the season. It's a necessary evil since part of the state rules require turf fields to be used for playoff games.

    Minnesota Amateur Hockey League - 1941 Finals

    It was a matter of time before Stillwater would close up shop... I mean, the team just outright stunk. But, the good news is that there is plenty of opportunity for expansion in the Twin Cities League. It won't happen right away, of course. Two or three years at the five team format and then you could see another suburb try their luck with a franchise.

    College athletics identity changes 2018-19

    I don't know where this fits, but it is college related so... How about a conference making an identity change as the Division III Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference now becomes the American Rivers Conference

    2018 High School Football

    Oregon and Washington start this week while Iowa has already started. If a team plays in Week 0, then the first day of practice was on July 30th with the first week of play being this weekend. If a team plays in Week 1, the first day of practice was on the 6th and the first games are on the following weekend. Like in Oregon, Iowa did some realignment and Denison got placed in a different district with more northern schools like Sioux City Heelan, LeMars, Spencer, Storm Lake and Sergeant Bluff-Luton.
