Dream Games

Post by ramblinman on Mon Apr 24, 2017 1:04 pm

A few weeks ago on Edgy's board, there was a thread asking for interesting match ups. Thought I might pose the same question here. I would add that these should be games you would like to see that either have rarely been played or have never been played. Here are a bunch I've come up with, most of which are Chicago area centric, but I've included a few from other parts of the state:

Loyola vs New Trier
Nazareth vs Lyons Twp and Fenwick
Fenwick vs Oak Park-River Forest
Montini vs Glenbard West
IC vs York
Phillips vs ESL, Rochester and Montini
ESL vs Peoria
Carmel vs Libertyville
Marist vs Lincoln Way East
Barrington vs Hinsdale Central
Benet vs Providence
Bishop Mac vs Herscher
SHG vs Nazareth and Peoria
Althoff vs. PND
Edwardsville vs. Stevenson

On a personal note, Keokuk IA versus either West Hancock or Illini West...at present, Iowa teams don't get to play anyone from outside the state and these would be good rivalry games for us simply based on location.

SHG vs Naz sure sounds interesting. I'd pass on SHG vs Peoria. I saw that act before, I believe it was 2014 Semifinals. Let's just say I don't care much for that program.

Tolono Unity vs. Wilmington - These teams have never met and would be a great matchup of two 3A historical powers.

I could've sworn they played a couple 2-4 years ago in the quarters or semis.

I would nominate Sullivan Okaw Valley vs Stillman Valley if only because it can only happen in the state championship.

It was indeed a suplex Head Skin and it happened right in front of me. An all state DE slamming a 160 lb. reserve to the ground. What got me was that about two thirds of their fans stood and gave the guy a standing ovation. The other one third stayed in their seats, embarrassed by what they had seen.

Nope they have never played. Wilmo and SJO seem to play every year. Tolono being 8 more miles south than SJO usually sends them to the southern bracket. I would love to see this matchup as well.

I'll add Monticello vs. Mahomet, I know there is a size discrepancy but both towns don't seem to like each other very much.

Bishop Mac and Herscher played a few years ago but I would like to see Bishop Mac vs. Manteno.

We were conference rivals back in the old Okaw Conference days (around 1970-1985). There really is not much of a rivalry anymore. It has a lot to do with the fact Mahomet is twice as large as Monticello these days.

Mahomet has outgrown most of it's rivalries. Clinton/MS used to be terribly fierce rivals in wrestling in the 80s/90s and even into the early 2000s. Now? Not so much. MS is like 3-400 kids bigger. I think this season was the first time Clinton beat MS since 2001. I don't think either side sees it as much of a rivalry anymore. MS sent their JV one year to wrestle Clinton's varsity.

Welcome to the I8. Heard that MCHS has expressed interest.

Westmont is horrible, but certainly not any more horrible than the average CPL team. I know in the past you guys have had to schedule CPL non con a time or two.

And I'm not grumpy. I'd just rather look at some hot females than something that looks like it came from a Limp Bizkit union tribute album.

Is that what your avatar is supposed to be HS? The Limp Bizkit thingy?

Or is is a racist symbol, mocking the warrior heritage of the native American tribes that once proudly occupied Central Illinois?

Oh I know about Westmont...Morris played them in 2002 when they were in the "Southwest Suburban Paririe Conference Red,White,Blue Division"...it was about 6 different names over the years.....anyway,yes it was a ugly bloodbath. As far as CPS teams,that has been more common in recent years.I remember the days of scheduling say Pontiac,Minooka,Driscoll,JCA,Bishop Mac,Naperville North even St Rita for non conference games.I guess when you think you will have trouble winning games in your conference,you look for easier games.
There could be some great rivalries if they join the I8...looking forward to the Coal City games in the future.Even Sandwich and Plano could be some nice ones...how about a Wilmington?Morris game??? Things have changed in recent years...this never would of been discussed about 15 years ago.

IF... Morris joins the I8, they will likely dominate the league in football for at least the short term. You guys are a little more up and down over the past 10 years as compared to the 20 before that, but still an average year for you guys would likely result in a clean sweep of the conference. A few of the schools are growing, and I think that some could be competitive with you guys. Overall, it is my opinion that the addition of Morris would only prove to make the conference stronger - as the other teams try to catch up. Would certainly be a pretty salty small/mid size school league.

Don't forget about Herscher.  Smile

If I recall correctly, didn't HHSTigerfan have some sort of connection to Morris schools?  Does/did his wife work or sub in one maybe?  Regardless, I recall some of his posts about Morris as seemingly having some inside information.
